  • Yes, it is pointless

    The reason i say yes is because debate's last a very long time and never get to the point, well, most of the time. What i am saying is is that maybe they should make it so they have very limited time to talk. Also, the debates usually make no sense sometimes.

  • Has no necessary connection to what is actually true or right.

    Debate is argument for argument's sake. It is saying "my points are stronger than yours" when in fact it is equally possible that both parties debating have weak and incorrect points compared to the truth. The only time debate is viable is for resolutions that have no correct answer -- for if they do, no debate is required! Furthermore to argue a resolution with no correct answer is literally argument for argument's sake. No one can be right, only more persuasive. I think we generally value truth over a strong argument.

  • No, it's not pointless.

    Expressing ideas and challenging personal beliefs is very important. Debates also demand people to interact in a conflict rich environment while maintaining composure. In and of itself this skill is valuable, but it also allows people to express ideas effectively and analyze decisions deeply. The skills, information, and different perspectives gained from debating absolutely makes debates have a point.
