Argument

In logic and philosophy, an argument is a series of statements typically used to persuade someone of something or to present reasons for accepting a conclusion. The general form of an argument in a natural language is that of premises (typically in the form of propositions, statements or sentences) in support of a claim: the conclusion. The structure of some arguments can also be set out in a formal language, and formally defined "arguments" can be made independently of natural language arguments, as in math, logic, and computer science.

Two Fools

Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him yourself. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes. Would you like the above proverbs as much if they were from the Bible? What about if they were from the Koran? Or the Humanist Bible? Or the Upanishads? Who gives a rip where they are from!! What matters is the ideas, not the source.

There are three types of arguments identified by a famous philosopher by the name of Aristotle. Arguments are mostly based on logical fallicies and rhetorical devices; nevertheless, they are based on ethos, pathos, and logos. Ethos in arguments are arguments based on character, pathos in arguments are based on emotions, and logos in arguments are based on facts and reason.
