I think it's obvious that this is true.
Also, it is a moral virtue to be willing to test one's intellect against any topic. Only by engaging in a conversation with parties with opposing views are you going to be certain your views are properly tested. You cannot be sure you are not biased without debate. You may only ever be seeking out research data which confirms your bias while ignoring the data that contradicts your view. By persisting a debate and disciplining against reliance on strong rhetoric you become tested, more certain, less stupid.
Plus a good debate with a good opponent is f**king fun.
No, SmileCookie has a point. I enjoy debating pretty much any topic. If it is something I am knowledgeable about, I can share that knowledge. Frequently those with different views have different references and information, so I get to learn more about the topic. If it is something I am not as familiar with, I get to do some research and learn about it, then comment based on what I have learned, and often learn more based on the responses. I don't tend to argue the silly topics because I don't find them as interesting (like the lizard people in the clouds topic).
I mostly disagreed with the topic to be cheeky by arguing about whether I would argue about anything.
Maybe it's just that the things he likes to argue about are the only things on this app.
this is an app about debating. Isn't the point to argue about anything?
I will not... oh wait.
