I won't debate with you unless I'm willing and prepared to back my position, and I believe you already know better of me than to assume I'll just begin making stabbing gestures of disrespect without giving valid and refuting evidence.
From my experiences; this is one of those debates where the arguing parties have already chosen a side, and nothing the other says will ever change the other's position. It just causes problems with people you otherwise like and get along with.
