I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken ;)

Side: Yes

You would have to believe that any and all of your opinions are right, otherwise, the ideas wouldn't be opinions.

Side: Yes

That is true, but who said this was anything to do with God?

Why does it have to revolve around God?

Isn't it just asking you whether you have confidence in your opinions at all?

Side: Yes

3. Yes. And its a trick question.

Let's be honest here , we all have opinions on something . Whether it be on religion , adoration , gay marriage , Obama , or which tv show is the best , we all think our opinions are right . You can try to back your opinion with all the logic and reasoning you want but it's still your opinion and your going to think your right because that's why it's your opinion. You wouldn't have an opinion you disagreed or else you would change it and then think your new opinion is correct .

Side: Yes

They are always right for me, that is why I express them. They may not even be correct, but I'm determined to defend that in which I state. Surrender isn't on the table, only total annihilation. Opinions will never defeat me, facts may win the battle; but not the war that is CD.

One will never convince anybody of anything that they don't want to be convinced of. It is human nature to be competitive, debates, politics, conversation, isn't exempt from this.

When it comes to God then it's right because believing that God exists isn't an opinion, and it's a fact.

I agree that as a Christian the existence of God is a fact. However, what God wants, his qualities etc etc are a matter of opinion.

Side: No

No, Dana, you completely misunderstood his argument.

He never said that god isn't right all of the time, what he's saying is that the assertion that god exists is factual.

By right do you mean just or fair? Because 'right' and 'wrong' can't be applied to opinions, since they are just a way of thinking, not an answer or fact.

Now do I believe my opinions are always just or fair? As a logical person, no. My opinions are always in my own interests, even if sometimes those interests coincide with the law, or the interests of others, ultimately they are my interests first, hence the reason they are my opinions.

It is my opinion that I should win every game, it is my opinion that open carry is not as effective as it's supposed to be, it is also my opinion that idiots should not walk across the road if I'm driving. Out of these three opinions, one isn't fair, one is a law, and one is just there. No right or wrong about it.

What else is the purpose of debate when we believe that our answers are unquestionable?

No. I admit that I dont know everything. .

Not all the time. When it comes to certain topics I can be right at some point. Although, I tend to be wrong about some of them.

Side: No

Most of the time, I have to admit- we all like to think we're right, right?

But, I wouldn't disagree that I have been wrong more than once..

Side: No

I usually believe I am right when I say something but am willing to be proven wrong.

Our knowledge is never complete. What I have is just a handful of it or even less what lies ahead is a big ocean. To feel it is a divine essence. N hence no person can always be right in his or her opinion

Side: No

I'm going to go with no. While I'm fairly confident in most of my opinions due to having given them considerable thought and research, this doesn't apply to all of them.

When I'm exposed to something for the first time, I form an opinion on it despite not having anything close to complete information on it- this is something that I cannot help, no matter how hard I try to remain objective. These initial opinions are very frequently revised when the matter is given more scrutiny.

Unfortunately, there are far more things that I've formed opinions on than I have time to adequately research. While I have researched and studied very many things, it doesn't even come close to the number of issues and ideas that I've formed opinions on with minimal exposure. I typically avoid debating on these topics, but that doesn't change the fact that i have an opinion on them.

While anyone can try to work from an objective position and anyone can try to avoid being biased either for or against their preconceived opinion, I wonder sometimes if it's humanly possible to actually be objective about anything.

I just can't consider an uninformed opinion to be a valid argument for anything; I believe things should be based primarily on reason, with feelings as more of a secondary concern. Not discounted entirely mind you, or disregarding them altogether, but I don't believe they constitute an argument themselves. Facts do. Conclusions in the form of theories that draw accurate conclusions do very nearly as well as facts themselves. Hypotheses that are consistent with the data and other available information pertaining to the subject are nearly as good as theories, sometimes. But opinions based on emotions, rather than knowledge? Nope. And it would be hypocritical of me not to apply that to myself. Everyone's a hypocrite sometimes, I think- myself certainly included, but I do try to avoid it.

Side: Yes

No of course not. If people only spoke their opinion's in light of being right, than there would be no point they have nothing to prove.

Even the people who believe all their opinions are right, IF they voice them, they are looking for feedback. So really no one (who voices an opinion OUT LOUD) truly believes their own opinion 100%.

Side: No

This question was a bit tough tbh. I will NEVER say "I am wrong and you are right", but all the same, I will never say "I am right and you are wrong".

At least in subjective arguments. If it were something objective, such as Pedophilia being wrong, then I'd most assuredly flip shit if somebody said it should be acceptable.

Side: No

True opinions are not things that can be right or wrong.

Side: No
