Why is a raven like a writing desk?

My answer: Relativity.
But I am pro: Writing Desk.

Relativity is just a theory.

Theories are not proof of anything.

Therefore.

A raven is like a jackdaw.

And a writing desk is like a drinks cabinet.

Relative! My dear Watson. You speak truth.

Now you're speaking my language Charlie!

Your theory is elementary, however.

You see, the Raven was written at the writing desk therefore the pen is mightier than the sword.

Any good scientist will know though, a theory isn't just science, it's philosophy!

Don't believe me? Please grab a pen and take note of the category we are in.

I speak truth. That, my dear Watson, is Relativity!

On the other hand Holmes. it depends on how one views the "matter".

Through a microscope, a raven and a writing desk would be very much alike.

The conundrum is.

How does one debate a question?
