Your justification for picking and choosing which argument to respond to is not accepted.

I use critical thinking when debating.  This means I do not get sidetracked by your attempts to divert the conversation.

This also means that your deduction: "If argument No. 6 of 8 is disproven, then therefore all other 7 points are disproven" is not only illogical, but a common parlour trick used to deflect attention away from the point you cannot refute and avoid the crux of the argument.

Actually if you used critical thinking, all you would have to have done is analyze all the posible arguments and posted the best one. By being uncritical and posting an ambiguous one, you undermind your point by being uncritical. So it is me who is using critical thinking to not waste time with the Good points, but to select the bad ones, proving your lack of critical thinking. In debate it is better to pick the best argument and be able to support it.

I used this argument when teaching. Students often used the passive-aggressive approach by presenting a snow job, sort of here are a bunch of points so give me a Good grade if you find one you agree with. Z says she uses critical thinking, but her snow job is simply the opposite.

RGoss is entirely right.

Your:

Another opinion.

A long-winded opinion that goes nowhere.

An English lesson.

Someone else debating the exact same thing...

A VERY short debate on the topic.

I wonder if you will look at any of the links.

Is a terrible way to pretend to be defending your position.

And of course, overlaps with time-wasting troll tactics.

That's a filthy smear.

But only what to expect from a blackmailed sort-of journalist.
