Logic for me is like fighting, you need to be react quickly and instinctively. If someone hits you, block it, counter-attack, and end the fight swiftly and strongly. I always think of destroying my opponent's arguments with logic, counter-arguments, and evidence, but recently, i'm trying to learn more about logical fallacies so i can use it to make their arguments weaker. Thoughts? Suggestions? Ideas?

Argue with conspiracy theorists. They use every logical fallacy in the book so you'll get really good at recognizing them.

It helps if you research stuff thoroughly. A good place to start any research for a debate is infowars.com. That's what I do anyway.

yea man, not trying to be arrogant, but i'm ready to just go crazy on debates and fight a whole bunch of people. I'm very passionate about what i defend, so when it comes down to it,i'm on fire. Some people beat me, but i'm looking for a rematch now that i'm better prepared.
