You can always poke a hole in an argument. We live in a world of balance and polarity. Any time you define an action with one side there is always going to be the reverse of that action on the other side. You can take any statement and find the negative in it. You can take anything and find something unfavorable about it. Poking holes in arguments isn't anything special. That is something anyone can do.

Rather than poking holes in arguments we should be moving past thinking in polarities. There is good and bad in everything and there are holes in everything. What is a hole for one situation is a filling for another. What is wrong in one situation in right in another. It all depends on the application at hand.

My Little Pony: No polarities? Then what are

No polarities? Then what are these?

"There is good and bad in everything and there are holes in everything. What is a hole for one situation is a filling for another. What is wrong in one situation in right in another. It all depends on the application at hand."

Don't take this as "poking a hole", but I couldn't help myself.

Quinton Figueroa: They are different
@My Little Pony (view comment)

They are different perspectives of the same thing. They are things that when viewed from one perspective can been seen one way and when viewed from another perspective can been seen another way. They are dependent on the observer. To designate them as something is to take away from something else.

hudson: the term for this?

Is there a specific term for poking holes in another persons argument?
