M: An argument isn't just contradiction.

O: Well! it CAN be!

M: No it can't!

M: An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.

O: No it isn't!

M: Yes it is! 'tisn't just contradiction.

O: Look, if I *argue* with you, I must take up a contrary position!

M: Yes but it isn't just saying 'no it isn't'.

O: Yes it is!

M: No it isn't!

O: Yes it is!

M: No it isn't!

O: Yes it is!

M: No it ISN'T! Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of anything the other person says.

Me, I love a good dialectic, be it three ten-word sentences or three thousand pages books. The opening of this thread ain't it.

:ok Meade got it, anyway...

BTW, I can think of several exceptions to the "every religion" assertion, and I'll bet most of you can, too. Oh, and the theist (Christian?) really doesn't come across as any better than the atheist in this exchange. I wonder which one of them paid one pound for those five wasted minutes? ;)

That's true - also the dubious "every religion" statement has many holes. Snail got it too - the dialectic is a no show in the meme(?). Or should that be, deo-lectic? :lol:
