That's kind of the basic premise of how debating ideas works.

Until a counter point is raised, no, it's not actually.

Contradicting arguments prove nothing. A counter point works differently in debasing the original argument and make it invalid.

I'm not using that logic. You're using that logic. And, it's pretty illogical.

Countless people have already argued against this. I need not beat the dead horse any further.

Teenagers seem to have this misconception that all ideas are of equal value. They're not. While they may both be opinions, one is more logical, reasonable, and backed up than the other- Therefore right. Why would anyone hold an opinion they didn't feel was right? If you just want to say "that's your opinion" to everything, then why have a debate forum in the first place?
