    It's not about winning.

    "Define win.... "

    Either 1 - 0, or 0 - 1.

    No such thing at the spirituality forum; see "Fortunately, Unfortunately" thread 😉.

    For me it's mostly about engaging people who are beyond parody because I don't get the opportunity much in 'real life'.

    Zen Master : young wolfhopper, what is troubling you

    Wolfhopper: I cannot remember a thread where a theist won an argument against an atheist master?

    Zen Master: How can this be young wolfhopper for if there is no I then there can be no opponent and if there is no opponent what is there to win or lose?

    Wolfhopper: But master we observe in nature the strong overcoming the weak?

    Zen Master: even the greatest darkness cannot overcome even a little light and water if it drips with constancy can make a hole even in a large rock. Be water young Wolfhopper!

    What does "win an argument" mean to you - write the last post ?

    Hey, you got a response; better than stoney silence.

    who decides who won? what does "winning" ensue?

    if you measure success by "getting your opponent to change his mind" you must reevaluate the reasons why you debate.

    In your case, it's often when the other guy says something that prompts you to copy paste quotations. 🙂

    excellent point... full results may not become apparent for months or years later or not ever on this forum.
