Why is argumentation is a futile and quite immature exercise when intelligent people know that
each is entitled to his/her opinion and outlook on the situation at hand? We are not supposed to agree on everything. Each person has a different, even opposite outlook and/or opinion. Unless the opinion and/or outlook is intent to harm anyone, everyone has entitled to his/her opinion. What do you think?
That is what HP forums are about, we learn this as you have spoken, I certainly believe
That there is a truth, and a right to all things existing I believe that in our lifetime we will all be given that opportunity to hear it. But will we accept it is another story. Even Jesus preached directly to many crowds and they followed ,at times numbering in the thousands,
There were those who rejected him and what he talked about ,they did witness the works of the spirit by him as proof ,it was their hearts that would not let them because act on the truth, they liked the way things were at that time in their favor of Comfort .
New World Translation Mt 19:21 Jesus said to him: “If you want to be perfect, go sell your belongings and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come be my follower.”
Being Jesus follower does not come with riches and comforts in this world run by satan.
But soon his rule ends , and Jesus Complete rule begins.
That is when life will be world wide in happiness and order.
Caught by your title question. I tried to understand. Argumentation or augmentation??? The question seems plausible for both...
Nice pic. I could laugh at this man and his foolishness for hours!!! He brings memory of better days (my wonder-filled childhood. )
You do remind me of him, now that I think of it... was/is he some type of hero for you?
Well, there is a difference when one argues for the purpose of learning and when one argues for the purpose of putting people down. When one tries to get their point across, yet keeps an open mind, which can also be called the nicer name of "debating", the comments tend to stay away from personal attacks, including about others' ideas.
But most hubbers (aka "semi aspiring writers") who say they are debating for the purpose of learning are actually just trolls. All you have to do is go to their activity and see they are just jumping into topics to only say negative things. I call them "snipers". They do not say one positive thing, nor do they go to articles to learn or comment. They just comment on questions, typically about religion or politics and say negative things.
I don't see any point in putting someone down for the joy of it,it doesn't make you or them feel better,good answer biz whiz
I am so grateful u picked my answer! I would like 2 thank the academy and also the little people. U like me! U really like me!
Unfortunately emotions get all tied up in the conversation. When people are emotionally invested, and those emotions get charged, reason goes out the window.
I agree that even I get into arguments on rare occasions for difference of opinion.think it is part of human nature.

Why does it seem most Christians are immature.It seems most people professing to be Christian do not have a proper grounding in the scriptures. They drink the milk but do not seem to be able ( or maybe no desire?) to eat the real meat- understand the deeper things of God, in spite of the fact...
