An Argument on Logic

2008-02-13 19:26:27 by MortifiedPenguins

One day, lets just say, in January.

I decided that I should share my wonderfull world of insights (Life, the Universe, Everything) during a meeting of the debate club.

Current topic: Should members of an organised religion be banned from any active role in government.

People, I kid you not. This was an actual topic for debate, this was an actual idea put up by the moderating teacher.

I, as I hoped many others there would be, was shocked, appaled and even offended. But I was the only. Not a single other soul showed any reaction.

So, I in all my thoughts on human decensy, raised my hand and asked for a change of topic, noting the unlikely hood of this every happening, the injustices of it to the Constitution and the illogical nature of it.

The reply from the teacher was that he didn't make the topic, that he has in fact never made any of our debate topics, but rather that they are student submitted and evaluated by a select board that I was not on.

So, some mousey looking girl that's usually always in the back and never talks, a person that I favored up to this point, stands up and says, " Well, I brought this topic up, because your type of people have always been notoriously close minded, arrogant and repressive of others beliefs."

My reply was that the response was illogical and ironic.

So was religion, she said.

I stopped, there was no point, I can't win at that.

One cannot move a stone with words alone.
