    So we argue about random topics. And we select the winner based on best argument with the least logic. May the best straw man win!

    we shouldn’t argue about random topics, being random involves the sitrah of amalek who champions luck and i want to keep far away from amalek, we should stick to a set of topics while doing it illogically

    Six years ago, there was a thread regarding whether or not it was necessary to finish high school in order to secure a decent living. At one point, I brought in statistics from the BLS showing that, on average, the higher a person’s level of education, the more they earn.

    One poster’s response: “i hold that statistics dont affect us yidden.”

    My favorite illogical argument:

    Extrapolation from the observed to the unobserved is a valid method to draw conclusions about the way the world works because we have used this method successfully in the past.

    Everyone knows that elephants are purple.

    Purple is a color, and so is pineapple.

    I like bananas.

    Therefore, Airplanes carrying gorillas are sure to make a tasty snack.

    of course. You see, when a coffee addict agrees with you, you know you’re right.

    It reminds me of the time I thought that a green bellybutton signified that nuclear war was coming soon. Although the the sky was still a desk, the Cuban on the porch didn’t think so.

    is it an argument or a contest? you cant have an argument thats a contest because it can only be one or the other. obviously, if its an argument then it isnt a contest so it for sure can’t be a contest if its an argument.

    The contest is totally separate from the argument, as proven by Hogan’s Theory in Intrinsically Argumentative Contests.

    Here’s an argument:

    We see from the ma’apalim how wrong it is to try and rush the ge’ulah. They tried to enter Eretz Yisroel when they weren’t supposed to. Their fate? They lost Hashem’s help in war. They were destined to lose. It doesn’t matter how strong they are or how weak their enemies are. The fate of those who rush the ge’ulah is the loss of Hashems protection and help, which will inevitably lead to military defeat.

    We see from the victories of the 1948 War of Independence, the 1967 Six Day War, etc… that G-d did not leave the Zionists and that they weren’t rushing the geulah. Had they been rushing the geulah, they would have met the same fate as the ma’apilim, loss of Hashem’s protection and military defeat.

    This proves that we are not rushing the geulah and that Hashem wants us back in control of Eretz Yisroel.

    simcha,

    i do think that Hashem wants us in control of eretz yisrael

    and i don’t think that the zionists were thinking they were trying to get the geulah

    in otherr words “rushing the geulah” is proactive

    Proactiv is an acne treatment. Therefore your argument is worthless.

    thats right rebyidd

    proactive is (of a person, policy, or action) creating or controlling a situation by causing something to happen rather than responding to it after it has happened

    ahh the joy of edit, my argument isn’t worthless 😛

    sneakers are a form of shoes and he is being sneaky

    Sneakers are actually a type of fruit, because tomatoes are a fruit, and if tomatoes are a fruit, anything can be a fruit.

    tomatoes are red. and robins are red so tomatoes are secretly birds

    This thread ought to be titled logical argument contest since in relation to most of the other arguments on CR these seem logical.

    My username ends in a 3. That means I am right all the time, because 3 is open on one side and closed on the other, that means I stand for what I believe in but I still keep an open mind.

    that means I stand for what I believe in but I still keep an open mind.

    that doesnt make one right, since you made a false deduction you are wrong during the whole thread

    It wasn’t a false deduction. I really was ONE HUNDRED PERCENT RIGHT. You are WRONG LIKE A CABBAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    since you didnt specify which type of cabbage (napa, green, red….) that makes me 100% right being that only napa cabbage is wrong, red cabbages are always right

    and i’m like a red cabbage always right
