I was just having a verbal debate with one of my grandma's friends (we were all out to dinner). It was a debate that I've already done IRL, so I had statistics, science, logic, all supporting my claims. She then said, "You sound like one of my sisters friends, using science and statistics. Seriously, just look around you." agghhhh. Vent over.

Response: "Looking at, or observing what is around us is essentially the root/foundation of all science. So she was essentially saying to use science, when you already were. Sounds like a concession to me. Argument points to you sir.

Nope, accepting your first answer, and your first answer makes no sense. Goodbye.

Premise 1: If a mistake is fixed before a response is made, proper social etiquette is that the fixed statement is treated as valid, the original as invalid.

Premise 2: Even if a response is made before the statement is fixed, proper social etiquette is that the corrected statement is taken as valid.

Premise 3: I corrected my statement

Therefore

Conclusion: the corrected statement is valid, the original is invalid.

Sure.

No cigar.


Premise 3: I corrected my statement

Before a response.


Therefore

Conclusion: the corrected statement is valid, the original is invalid.

SHAZAM

Your logic was valid, but unsound. Your conclusion was correct, though.
