Not in my book, but our disagreement on that issue doesn't matter...

Well, it would seem the only point really being discussed, so perhaps it may matter more than anything else! :)

Debunking shouldn't come from a position of wanting an argument to be wrong, it should come from a position of knowing an argument to be wrong on factual grounds. Otherwise, it just seems close-minded to seek help in proving something wrong that you don't actually know is wrong. Motivated.
