There is very little "winning" in a debate in terms of a scoreboard, but often there is a desire for more information and to find the truth that makes sense to you. It's interesting to see another person's side of things, whether or not you agree with it, opening your mind and seeing new sides is I suppose a form of winning.

Handing our country over to an anti Christian Communist party is a form of losing.

To SOME, it's a place to LTMFAO and call people names while they play dumb. Actually they're not just "playing". :-)

To others it's a place to TRY to understand what and WHY others think the way they do, and whether they may be rig …. um …. correct, or what they and theirs are "planning". Sometimes SCARY! ;-(

It's not quite about finding the truth always..

Though I'm not denying the truth in statements of an argument, It need not always be to verify how true a statement is.

Often debates have a common objective, but different ways to achieve it. Such debates depend on which approach is better.

Personally, I just love the reward from using reasoning to debate..

Not to change someone else's mind, but to change your own. To challenge your perspective against others to see if the logic behind your ideas is sound. If it is, fine. If it isn't, reevaluate.

Seriously ask yourself: of your deepest-seeded beliefs, how often do you actively try to learn an opposing perspective and try to find the necessary evidence that it would take to change your own mind?

But if you're here to change the world, or anyone's mind, that's a bit like trying to headbutt a door marked PULL into submission. You're not getting anywhere, and everyone is laughing at your expense.

To ensure that your viewpoint is presented and delivered in such a way that all opposing opinions are eclipsed and your convictions reign supreme.

People will almost always acquesse to the argument made by the strongest personality.

Note the mindless hordes,( the so called silent majority) following Hitler, Stalin and now Kim jong un, and the likes of.

To watch Nom, the human freak show, make an ass out of himself for us all to see. A circus composed of a genius living in his parents' house without a job or a bank account.
