Top 10 Most Pointless Things to Argue About

The Top Ten
1 Religion

The answer to religion is easy: believe whatever the hell you want to as long as your not killing people as a result. It is that easy, yet society seems to be filled with so much idiots that we are stuck on it still. We should be devoting our time to I don't know. Maybe ending poverty, or pollution of the earth, or racism, or maybe even women's rights. Any one of these things are being ignored by this growing population of idiots stuck on something that a kindergartener could figure out. As a result the human race is starting to take a turn for the worst. Atheists don't blame religion, blame the argument on religion.

As long as all kinds of believers and non-believers don't live together in harmony, it is worth discussing. Especially how literal you should take books written ages ago by several people and probably went numerous alterations by men. Beliefs are okay and everyone should believe in what they want. But also consider when they were written and how times may have changed. Over the years, I as an atheist was good friends with christians as well as muslims, and we all got along perfectly. Because they took the essence of the books and adapted them for modern times, and did not believe every word literally.

The problem isn't even religion religion is a set of beliefs the problem is people armed with self rightousness, and who don't actually care if their religion says their doing something terrible because that would get in the way of what they wish to do, aka the lets want to kill them and take their stuff oh wait I need a reason to justify it oh wait I know ill do it in the name of god, or (insert cause or ideal here) freedom, democracy, divine will, the greater good, (whatever country this person belongs to), these are just things warmongers hide behind, the problem isn't religion its people using it as a tool.

Music is a perfectly reasonable thing to argue over, but religion, you just don't argue over, because you just believe in something or someone, and you let that guide you in life, but you don't go around shoving it down peoples throats, bullying them, killing them, or protesting AGAINST human rights in the name of religion, and you DEFINITELY DON'T start wars over it. And that's religion 101.

2 Taste in Music

Pointless is if two people argue about facts that can't be changed. Skin color can't be changed, origin can't be changed, sexuality can't be changed.
Music itself can be argued about. Especially if you are talking about artists in the same genre. For example who's the better singer, rapper, band, which song is better and why. You CAN argue about that. But not your personal taste. There are songs that please you and are even addictive to you, yet you know they are actually pretty flawed. But no one will be able to make your satisfaction with the songs disappear. They may make you change your mind about its quality but not your feelings towards it.

Everyone has their own opinion, regardless of what it is they are entitled to it. No one should try to convince them otherwise. Other people will always have a different taste in music, regardless of how popular this is. Why is this even an argument?

Everyone has a different taste in music so everyone will think differently. Then if you meet someone who doesn't have the same music preference as you, it'll start up the conversation on which music is better. WHO CARES? Music is music.

There is this dumbass who just doesn't realise different people have different tastes. His favorite person is justin bieber (gay) and he's talking about others's tastes

3 Human Skin Color

You know, opinions can be argued about and a majority of the items on this list could actually be an interesting discussion as long as both parties are respectful about the others' opinion. Especially when the two items are easy to compare.
But skin color, as well as every physical traits, is not something you can argue about. It's a fact you can't change, and does not reflect any apart of you except for your appearance.

In martin Luther's days the people where unfair to each other which is not good about them and finally martin made a stop to it and they where equal to each other.

Tsk tak tsk racism... Probably one of the most pointless things on earth. Who cares if someone is white or Latin or African American? They're just people.

"the USA is the most racist country"

Ever thought of because we have the most races? There's all different kinds of races so don't expect there to be little racism.

India has mostly Indian people

China mostly has Chinese people

Mexico mostly has Mexican people

United States has a mix of all

4 Sports

I'm a massive sports fan, especially Australian Rules Football and Soccer. But why do people have to fight just because they support a different team? Why do people have to complain every time they lose? Why do people act like snobs every time they win? It's not like the world evolves around your team. Even worse, there's an infamous Aussie Rules YouTube commenter known as EaglesFan2222 who tells people to commit suicide just because they go for different teams. (he's probably young) Telling people to commit suicide? Just because I don't support your team? Isn't that taking things too far? Like I said before, the world doesn't revolve around your sports team.

Sports should not exist in society anyway. All it is is watching people kick a ball into a net or hitting it with a long stick! People simply waste their time and their lives, basing their lives on the outcome of a game! Yeah, I know exercise is important, but it's useless to watch people doing it. What are "sports professionals" professionals at, anyway?! Kicking a ball! They get paid bigbucks for one of the most talentless things anyone can do! It's pointless watching people do this and pointless arguing about whether the talentless Man U can kick a ball into a net more times than the equally talentless Man City!

I think sports shouldn't matter as much as they matter today. Like you shouldn't be crying or getting angry over LeBron or however you spell his name for moving to another team. He is just a person that happens to be very good at basketball. Calm down.

Sports are a vital part of every states economy, without them or better yet without the argument of sports every state would be in poverty and the unemployment percentages would sky rocket.

5 Same-sex Marriage

I don't understand people sometimes. Have your opinions on certain matters, but keep them to yourself. These people aren't you, so why get mad? And just because someone has the freedom of speech, doesn't mean they have to use it. I'd just like people to stop getting upset over other people's lives that have nothing to do with them.

As with most of the things on this list it becomes a pointless argument when the person you are talking to about it is ignorant about it and close-minded. Because then it just becomes an argument where the other person isn't even listening to what you are saying cause they are so convinced that they are right.

Romans Romans 1:27 says it's wrong end of story.
And the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

If you marry the same sex then I think that's wrong because you are committing a sin and you are being gay. It is also wrong because if you don't want to have a child and marry the same sex as you it is WRONG!

6 Mac vs PC

I own a PC and an Iphone, I guess that pretty much solves that. I would like to point out that nobody should ever fully support one or the other. There are benefits to both, and one has to realize that both companies have performed incredible contributions to technology. Once you realize that, the validity of this argument is lost.

Mac's are much more user friendly, PC's can do a lot more, but you have to either be a computer genius, or do A LOT of research! Macs also, if you do a little research, can open a window that runs on Windows, and they can do all sorts of other cool things that don't involve coding.

Macs blow. PC can provide so much more specs and processing power for about half of the cost of an Apple product. The only thing that makes Mac computers successful is the user interface designed for technologically challenged people and the stlye logo

It's stupid, you buy a computer that is compatible with your needs.

7 Pepsi vs Coca-Cola

They almost taste the same so stop arguing about it. I don't care I buy whichever one is cheaper sometimes I buy BOTH.

Even though I like Coke way more, they pretty much taste the same anyway.

I like coke the best but Pepsi isn't bad they sort of taste the same!

We had this debate in my seventh grade math class and Pepsi won... I don't know if this helps

8 Video Game Consoles

How about just Xbox Vs Playstation PERIOD?! It just doesn't matter, there are games you can only play on certain consoles, but still, no matter what console you get, you can still play fun games on it. I really wish these dumb arguments would just die already.

Obviously they are at each others backs, well most of the time. They do sponsor the same games but others different, such as Lbp or other games. It's such a pointless thing to argue about because they are both awesome devices.

We just can't let nintendo get into this. They are too overpowered. If they get into this, the world will end and nintendo will take over. But overall, nintendo is better than ps3 and xbox 360. There is no match up.

I think PS3 is better than Xbox 360 because of the different games on each system. I personally like hash and slash games more than first person shooter, more of those games are on the PS3. My opinion please don't hate.

9 What Clothes You Wear

Who cares about clothing? I can choose what I want to wear. To me, the days of the week are like the colors of a rainbow. ROYGBIV are seven colors of the rainbow & there's seven days of the week. Here's something to explain it.
Sunday - I wear red.
Monday - I wear orange.
Tuesday - I wear yellow.
Wednesday - I wear green.
Thursday - I wear blue.
Friday - I wear indigo.
Saturday - I wear violet.
If that's what I'll wear every week, then I'll wear it. Who cares about clothing? Why do women like to buy clothes a lot?

People seriously think I'm weird for wearing clothes from Kohl's or Target. Like, I don't care about fashion the slightest bit, so WHY are you calling me out for shopping at Kohl's? I don't want to shop at Forever 21 or areopostale, because its kind of expensive. Like, I'm not into "fashion fads" so be quiet

I want comfortable clothes but my mother wanted me to wear jeans. This maybe happens everywhere.

I care what I wear! I want guys to find I'm attractive but be comfortable at the same time

10 Men vs Woman

I believe we should all be treated equally. However, it's a fact that men are built stronger and more athletic than women, but that doesn't mean that we can't become as strong like them. For example, women who are body builders. Anyways, back to my belief, men should never hit a woman but also women shouldn't abuse men like they do in relationships these days.

Should be #1. Why is it that everyone (except me, my friends, and probably some other people I don't know) sees their gender as either superior in every right, or as victims. F-ing ridiculous. Yes, a woman should be arrested if she hits a man that didn't hit her first or threaten to, and yes, an average woman can beat an average man in a fight. It's happened, I have witnessed it happening.

What's to argue about that? Women and men are part of the nature and both are equally needed to make a world.

I am a woman and people treat men better than me! I'm so sick of it!

The Contenders
11 McDonald's or Burger King

They both sell nasty ass food so get a life and bring your ass down to the nearest Dominos Pizza!

Come on it's IS burger King... Hey this actually got me mad I'm ashamed

Oh, I like both of these.

I hate burger king

12 Hottest People

This is one I see people argue about all of the time. They look like complete retards. I just walk away laughing.

Everybody is beautiful in their own way. There is no "hottest" person.

Halsey is the most beautiful person ever! Everyone else is not!

13 Best Movies

Harry Potter is obviously the best, there is no argument. The script, the acting, the direction, the make-up. It is the most successful movie franchise of all time, people who think anything is better need a reality check.

Some people get angry if you disagree with them about how good a movie is. For example, a lot of people that are fans of James Cameron's "Titanic", get very defensive if you tell them that it is not the greatest ever!

This is a crazy thing to argue about, but I have to say that I have never watched nor will I ever watch Harry Potter because of all of the magic and sorcery... That is just my opinion though

Everyone has a different opinion, I know I do. If you want to argue about this it is fine with me. I warn you absolutely pointless, please don't waste your time. PLEASE

14 Myspace or Facebook

Come on, myspace is dead honey, Facebook rules! In with the new, out with the old

Really? Myspace is nothing compared to Facebook.

I like to eat towels

Who has a MySpace anymore?

15 Democrat vs Republican

This one gets personal. Are we nothing but red states and blue states now?

Vote the red-buttoned potato lamp!

I don't care about such politics.

16 Girls or Boys

Whoever wrote this opinion is a dumb 8 year-old Donald Trump supporter that hasn't learned
anything ever. I personally think that both genders are vital (important) for this world and its needs, there is no superior. Whoever defies my point is a complete idiot

Actually, girls CAN make tiny little human babies without boys. They have what it takes to get pregnant. It's just really really not likely to happen, but it actually can.

We boys and you girls don't function nearly the same, but we're the same species, okay?

Not without sperm donators.

17 Cartoons vs Anime

Anime is graphically better, and more interesting, while cartoons are typically funnier, and more action packed at times, same goes for anime.

I'd say that I prefer anime over cartoons, but cartoons have a lot of slapstick and comedy compared to anime. I have argued about it once before.

This has completely gotten way out of hand on Top Tens Lists even I got caught up in this whole mess.

Both are good in their own right but some people take this argument way too far.

18 Coolest Cars

You didn't buy them with YOUR money. This is indeed a pointless thing to argue about.

I hate it when people argue about cars.. Seriously who cares?!

Honda jazz is de best

19 One Direction or Justin Bieber

Both are bad influences because two members (Zayn Malik & Louis Tomlinson) of One Direction were caught smoking weed. Justin Beiber has done a handful of things that grants him a bad reputation. Being a One Direction fan myself I obviously choose them because 1) they do many charities nobody knows about 2) they are humble, they don't show off they're money 3) they're all around nice guys that love singing & 4) many of you have not bothered to see they're movie because they're a "gay boy band" but they're movie says a lot about them and they just want to live their lives to the fullest. Justin Beiber is also nice but he has too much of an ego for me to like.

Totally One Direction. I mean, who would ask that?

None they both suck

One Direction is the worst!

20 Best Sports

Oh come on!
We shouldn't argue.
Everyone knows Aussie Rules football is the best sport.

Do shut up, these people! You're plainly unbearable!

21 England vs America

Only reason why USA spells honour or colour like honor or color is because they are too lazy and don't know how to spell. Coming from a Canadian. And no not all Americans are lazy. Only 51% of them. Ha ha just trolling. But seriously Americans don't spell the same as pretty much every other one.

We beat England in a war when they supposedly had the best navy and army in the WORLD! We had some ragtag soldiers without even any uniforms and we beat their butts! Suck on that!

Didn't America come from England, and by saying that America sucks your pretty much saying England sucks.

Slackjawed Queen-apologists will argue that this qauint reminence of a once power country still has any world authority. USA wins hand over fist in ass.

22 Best Anime

My favorite Anime is the Simpsons cause it has a very deep lore and very interesting caracters.

I think Tokyo ghoul is the best anime by far.

Bleach, one piece and daily lives of highschool boys are the best

Cory in the house

23 Burger Restaurants vs Pizza Restaurants

Burger King is the king of everything

Well Pizza Hut is gonna dethrone the king.

24 Kisses or Smooches

Smooch on my butt

Depends on how it is

25 Apples vs Oranges

Oranges are too annoying.

Too juicy to decide!

Apple for the win!
