Begging The Question

I like to debate. Ask any of my friends and I'll launch into an argument about just about anything, although my favourites are politics and religion. The downside of course, of liking to debate, and having it be known that you like to debate, is that you get a bunch of fucking idiots that want to validate their opinions by running them by you.

One of the things that drives me crazy about talking to idiots is the misuse of words and definitions, which brings us to todays Lesson in Logic.

"Begging The Question". This is when you answer a question by repeating the question.

Q. Why is the sky blue
A. Because the colour your eyes see when you look at the sky is blue
