  • How to Debate

    (Original thread by Epsilonite)

    I thought that this site could use some useful information on how to debate, so I've taken the liberty to list up websites that contain useful information in this very topic. I have personally visited every site and found nothing wrong with any of them. It's up to the staff to decide whether this topic will be pinned or whatever.

    http://www.infidels.org/news/atheism/logic.html
    How to build an arguement; also contains many logical fallacies and how not to commit them
    The logic of the site is correct; the examples they use may offend you.

    The three components required for effective arguementation
    Subpoints:
    -Credentials
    Qualifications and why it's important.
    -Emotions
    The more emotion involved, the more power the message.
    -Logic
    If it's not logical, no one will listen to it.

    On Logical Fallacies
    Fallacy Tutorial
    Logical Fallacies and the Art of Debate
    Fallacy Files
    Wikipedia's Article
    All sites are equally valid; each contain an introduction on why logical fallacies are important and why you should avoid them. Read this portion at least once!
