I'm looking to build a list of reasons to agree or disagree... This is all I have so far: Please help!


Reasons to Agree (and disagree)

I believe we can design online forums that promote good debate.

In order to have a good debate we need to bring all the stuff that supports a belief and that opposes a belief together to the same page. No one seems to understand that It doesn't prove anything if you make a good argument, but ignore those that disagree with you.

So my forums will have reasons that agree and disagree on the same page. Each reason (or arguments) will get a rank. Many factors will be used to rank each arguments. One factor that will affect the score for a reason, is the number and score of reasons to agree or disagree with them. Did you catch that? Each reason will have reasons to agree and disagree with them, just like in normal life. Because each argument, in real life is its own conclusion. For instance each reason to agree or disagree that someone is a good president will have many reasons to agree or disagree with them, and so on.

Of course we will also allow users to rate arguments. But more than just a thumbs up or a thumbs down we will allow users to evaluate specific aspects of an arguments: is an argument fair, accurate, does it exhibit any of the specific logical fallacies such as a straw man argument?

All these factors will result in a score for each argument. However arguments are used to support or oppose many specific conclusions. For instance the belief that it was wrong for Germany to invade Poland, can be used to support different arguments, with different levels of validity.

Each reasons to agree or disagree submittal would include the belief that it supports or opposes a specific conclusion. You would click on a link to argue in support or opposition to each relationship.

On this website most of my reasons will be submitted to support non controversial topics surrounding family life.

Visit one of my other pages to see how videos can be used to support or oppose different conclusions.
