Looking For Intelligent Debate

Is there anyone out there who knows how to engage in intelligent debate?  I welcome debating people who disagree with my opinions to present facts or evidence supporting their views.  But all I get are opinions backed up by more opinions and circular arguments.

I state an opinion based on a fact.

“I don’t think that it’s true?”

“How is it not true?” I ask.

“Well, it doesn’t sound true.”

“What evidence do you have that it is not true?”

“My evidence is that I don’t think it’s true; therefore, it’s not true, and that’s my opinion.  I’m entitled to my opinion.”


I can see my problem: I am looking for intellectual stimulation, and I foolishly believe I can find it on this planet.
