    It won't work, because even though you deem no party, you still argue for a side that undoubtedly will appear as a mainstay for said party. I tried it in the past; it does not work.

    You can try, but you cannot last without bias.

    You may as well have me test you. I would undoubtedly prove your bias should I test it.

    I don't think the point is to argue without bias. I think the point is to not just label and dismiss the counter-argument.

    True enough. People do this because I believe there afraid that might lose the debate and actually change sides on side topic. Most people are afraid of true open debates because what they can mean to one self. Two things most Humans hate or afraid of. Admitting oneself is wrong and change.

    Tried that, too. Over time your (everyone's) frustration will build. You may think otherwise. Heh, you may last months. Your frustration will undoubtedly cause you to label and dismiss.

    A test only 1-2 weeks long? Sure. But what does that accomplish if you can't last indefinitely? It's akin to not eating fast food for 2 weeks, and then resuming your bad habit.

    Furthermore, why ban only fast food? As in just labeling and dismissing? We're told we're inherently good, right? That in account, why not try to stop all bias, bad grammar, bad spelling, ad nauseum? Why only target a certain patch of skin for a certain spance of time, when we could and "inherently" should target all for a permanent length of time?

    Keyword most. However, let's look a little deeper at this issue.

    Why should a person want to change? What if they shouldn't? Is change always good? What if a person doesn't want to "admit" oneself as incorrect if from their mindframe they're correct? Does numbers equate to being wrong or right? How deep should we go here?

    Change is neither good nor bad. Change is life.

    Only dead things cease to change.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    1. Maybe. Depends.
    2. Partially true. Depends on what's after death.
    3. False. Decay, petrification, change of matter, dust, bones, etc. *4

    4. Depends significantly on what happens after death, or if there are spiritual elements in our existence.

    1. True.
    2. True partially. Spiders tend to pierce and then suck. *3

    3. If you meant the derogatory term, then that claim is false. The spider may think you "suck". Who's correct now?

    Since it can't be clearly demonstrated, it's kind of silly to bring it up as a point for argument.

    You are failing to see the difference between changing and being changed.
