... it seems that when a discussion doesn't go "your way", it's not a "real" discussion ... well, not to you anyway.
A discussion remains a discussion though, whether we like it or not, and our personal likes and dislikes have no merit whatsoever in respect to "discussion" which is a mode of communication to 'voice' agreement/disagreement (of opinions) -- (dis)agreement (of opinions) however, doesn't render anything less or more true/false.
Believing 'your' opinion is right is mere confidence, believing 'your' opinion is fact is sheer arrogance. Discussion is merely a means of exchanging ideas; ideally a means to establish a consensus - not a mode to establish truth-value.
rejected and denied by many, accepted and embraced by few : falsifiability
- it is not what we (think we) know that matters, it is what we can show true that does
as the maxim demands; truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true
everything else ... mere BS -
