Here is some theological debate advice from Star Trek Next Generation’s sentient android, Data:
Test it. Don’t try to “win” the debate. Stay civil throughout. See what happens.
P.S. And notice how Data behaves even after, not trying to “win”…he “wins”…
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude (1 Corinthians 13:4-5a).
