Argument Club

Posted March 9th, 2009 at 09:51 PM by scottishlad5
Hey all,
I have been at heroscapers a long time, and I have noticed that there are alot, of very good, and talented lawyers, and debaters here.

I am proposing that about every month, we have a topic that some comes up with that we all study, and have a good old fashion argument about it. By that I mean, we have a rebuttal and a cross examination, all of that neat stuff.

Its a little rusty, but what do you guys think?

M: Oh look, this isn't an argument.
A: Yes it is.
M: No it isn't. It's just contradiction.
A: No it isn't.
M: It is!
A: It is not.
M: Look, you just contradicted me.
A: I did not.
M: Oh you did!!
A: No, no, no.
M: You did just then.
A: Nonsense!
M: Oh, this is futile!
A: No it isn't.
M: I came here for a good argument.
A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
A: It can be.
M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
A: No it isn't.
M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
A: Yes it is!
M: No it isn't!

Good thing you didn't propose an Abuse Club or a Complaint Club. Unfortunately, you'll still have to pay for another hour.
