2 points I just thought of -

Too much tv watching is not good anyway and since I cannot give up my sedentary life style (after work), online debate is one way to keep the north pole active.

It is better to argue certain issues with online friends rather than getting into a real fight with soul mate over petty issues. He can always peep in and say "smart things" but I can easily focus more on replying to someone else rather than him .. What a peaceful arrangement!! LOL

"What is the point of debates?"

In answering this, I quote (in English) from a Bengali poem by Raja Ram Mohun Roy:

"Just consider how terrible the day of your death will be.
Others will go on speaking, and you will not be able to argue back."

Debates give us the opportunity to understand different point of views from different set of people. During the debates process we may concur with the other person's point of view or become more sure about our POV. Debates helps us in arriving at a decision in our mind in regard to a particular subject. Debates enhances the thinking power of an individual. In all Debates aache hai... Smile

haha, i cant believe most people debate because they want to hear the other guy Wink

mostly, they are into it for the entertainment value, for the rush they get when they crush the other guy's ego. Wink it's like playing chess. not everyone's gonna win a million bucks and become champ. yet they play, dont they? burn up all that time.

ok, when one does have to debate, as do presidential contenders etc, they're doing it for points. it's seldom to convince folks who already have their minds made up. rather it is to win the folks who are undecided and on the fence to their side, or to boost the morale of their side. Smile
