I'm full of who, what, where, why, when, how, if, but, what if, perhaps, maybe, if so etc etc and debate is one way of filling those blanks.


Been there, done that. FYI, that is stage 1.

Stage 2: you will still do all that but only with yourself. You will be the one asking questions and you will be the one answering them. In short, you will be debating with yourself. You will have minimal outwardly influence during this stage. At this point, you are listening to others but not considering any inputs because you already have those inputs. All possible viewpoints are built in, inside your system.

Stage 3: You eliminated most viewpoints and settled down on just a couple. You are not sure which one is the right one because the truth is still eluding you.

Stage 4: I wish I knew.


The stages may not necessarily be in order though. Many a times, i feel, we may delve from stage 2 to 1 and back and forth . Stage 3 may similarly lead to stage 2 or stage 1.

Yeap, thats the one. Smile
Ahh as I talk about it the equations flash into my mind and give me a whole lot of nostalgia of the time when I first learnt it. *sigh*
 
btw, hello Clod jee.
Namastey ji. LOL
You talk about those equations like you were very close to them. Aakhir baat kya hai?What's the matter?LOL

Now, coming to the topic, why do y'all like to debate? Is there something interesting about it? Is it because you get to see so many different POVs on a topic? Is it because you are also confused about your own POV and would like to see what others think on an issue? What drives you to debate? What is the purpose of debating? Do we always reach to a stand point at the end? or does the debate gets lost along the way?
 
 
Why debate? I don't debate, so i am quite ineligible to answer that question.
Nevertheless, in a general sense i must add that i am quite inconclusive about at least 95%  of the topics around me. I always have a contradiction in my mind to whatever stand i think of taking. Makes me feel as if how can i honestly debate at all when my mind is not ready to take a stand?!
   Regarding why i like coming to debate mansion---presently, that is just because the average intelligence level of people around here is much higher than of those around me. Makes sure that my mind always has a thought to ponder upon when i leave this place.

I like things that I'm good at and then unintentionally get close to em too. :P
The way you are talking about those equations--it seems if you don't find a decent match , you'd marry them only. LOL
