Okay, let's rock. I am the side debating for tradition. This is my first debate, and I am very ecstatic.

authority and tradition blind a man from reality. a man cannot clearly perceive "what is". he is stuck in "what should be" and thus causing serious error of judgement. evidence shows a man "what is" i.e. the reality. that's why evidence is better than tradition/authority.

besides believing authority destroy one's free thinking ability. this is the principle
on which our modern education system is based on. evidence teaches one to think
freely. to be creative and to create one's own theory. thats why evidence is better
than authority.
