The idea of an:

Introduction
Thesis
Paragraph 1
Paragraph 2
(etc.)
Conclusion
Summation of thesis

Is wrong in my oppinion. There are many better ways to deterine the trth and stimulate growth and learning. While this can be an acceptable method, I believe that thought should be less constricted to strict paralell rules and be free to flow, and be able to determine truth,in essay, which is the purest form of thought. Thanks to my opponent.

I think that this format is important to Refine Thought.
Not all thought is diamond ore and it is agreeable that refined diamond is more useful and preferable than diamond ore, even if it loses some of it's substance along the way of refinement.
Sure, there are other formats similar to this, but in that case, why not just use those?
If there is little reason to switch formats, then why would we expend resources to switch formats?

The current essay structure used here is just a guideline. Different papers are written differently, depending on the subject matter of the paper and where it's being published. The modern theory was never meant to be followed exactly.
