Very true, I agree. I don't see Debates as an attempt to persuade someone that my viewpoint is the correct one, nor do I expect myself to be willing to change my firmly held beliefs because of what an opponent would say.

Rather, I just see debates as an opportunity for both sides to express their arguements, and for the audience to decide who won/lost. So above all, politeness and courtesy takes precedence over all others.

I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue. Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

I mean, a polite point isn't always the accurate one, nor is a truth brutishly told suddenly false.
This is a situational viewpoint.

However in public discussion/debate I would tend towards someone making a “polite point” over someone making a “correct/accurate” point if the “correct/accurate” point is delivered poorly. I tend to give a little more slack or wiggle room to the message if I think the messenger has more tact.

I’m going to invite the person in that seems to be enjoyable to talk with and let them talk about what they have to say. I’d just be listening and talking back and forth and not deciding what’s wrong or right.

In spiritual matters such as these, what one views as absolute truth another may view as superstition or outright false beliefs; "truth" in this case is ultimately subjective.
