a healthy exchange of ideas for and against a particular concept, hypothesis / thought / observation.. done with an OPEN MIND to understand the other POV rather than a set of arguments designed to have the last word..

'logical errors people fall into when they believe they are making a point'

Debate is, by its nature, at the heart of politics. But, in the memorable words of Mr. Eric Idle, an argument isn't just saying "No, it isn't" all the time. Here are the major logical errors people fall into when they believe they are making a point. None of these things will result in deleted posts, but for the sake of clarity and your readers, try to be aware of them:

i. Non Sequitur: A statement that does not follow logically from what has just been said; a conclusion that does not follow.

ii. Generalisations: A statment based on unreliable, too little, or biased evidence; extrapolating a general event from an individual event.

iii. Ad hominem: Attacking a person who presents an argument rather than dealing with the argument logically.

iv. Bandwagon: Arguing that if everyone is doing something, it must be OK.

v. Circular reasoning ("begging the question"): An assertion that re-states the point just made, or is included as part of its own proof.

vi. Red Herring: Dodging the real issue by drawing attention to something irrelevant.

vii. Post Hoc, Ergo Procter Hoc: "After this, so because of this", assuming that sequence implies causality.

viii. Either ... or: Stating that only two choices exist when there are more.

ix. False analogy: Assuming that because two things are alike in some ways, they must be alike in other, unconnected, ways.

x. Equivocation: A statement that relies on the mis-reading of a particular sense of a word.

One that gives you 2-3 options, or one that doesn't give options at all?
Does a debate actually have to make sense, or do we make it make sense ourselves?
Does it need facts, or does it need possible theories?




interesting, I always wondered how to rate a debate!!

I guess, you need a group of stubborn ppl, who will make sure that other in the group agree to them, doesn't matter if their last breath comes in the middle!!!
they have to prove a point, aur apni galti nahian mani kabhi, and have to keep going on and on and on, until the other party quits or agrees or the topic is closed by a dev team member, telling everyone in other words to "get a life"
