What are some things that you notice people argue about a lot, but you find the whole argument itself very pointless? Either IRL or on UG.

I'll name some. First, arguments about who's worse; Hitler or Stalin. Pretty much a lot of arguments about what it worse in general. Like what's worse; this band or this band, rape or murder, etc.

A good deal of arguments about Art. Don't get me wrong, sometimes I'll read or hear a really interesting argument about music, art, etc. Especially when it's about music history. Other times not so much.

Le discuss.

These nouns are often used with a form of "to be" rather than "to have," e.g., "he is pwnage" rather than "he has pwnage". Either is a more emphatic way of expressing the simpler "he pwns,"

Creationism vs evolutionism.

Evolutionists really don't have any proof whatsoever.

There's no emotion in shredding.

I was going to say this.

People who argue this measure emotion by how slow the music is, how many bends it contains and what kinds of faces the player makes. Also, David Gilmour is always mentioned. It's the same every time and it's always completely retarded.

I wish people would be content to simply dislike certain music, instead of trying to prove that it is somehow inferior.

No. Those who quote this however are all retarded.

An argumentation can occur any place, as long as the actors are sane and have logic arguments an argumenation is never retarded.

It is somewhat useful for learning how to phrase arguments persuasively as you can be certain of your position; can't be arsed with it anymore though.

HURR DURR so original.
No but really, I hate that saying. Basically saying there's no such thing as a decent debate on the internet which isn't true at all.

That thread is kind of pointless. Seems like it's just a bunch of evolution supporters sitting around talking about how rational they are, waiting for a creationist to walk in the room so they can all beat the hell outta him.

The Atheism > Religion argument, or vice versa. Especially on the internet. Usually it's just a bunch of Atheists bitching about how evil Christianity and wait until someone says they believe in God then flame the hell out of him.

Politics are also a pointless argument.

There really are no proof for evolutionism at all. So yes it's a pointless argumenation.

Although in some cases, you'll be too blinded by your own raeg to realise that the issue in question is trivial and not worth arguing about.

The inevitable tide of pretentious idiots who think they're smart by suggesting you can't have a debate about art or music because it's 'subjective.' Of course you ****ing can, people have been doing it for centuries. So depressingly any thread about music on a music related forum invariably descends into people getting way too angry about the opinions of others, and pretentious twats.

Well, I actually think that, but it would be funny if someone had a tantrum about it and tried to argue that art being 'subjective' actually has any relevance to anything.
