Top Ten 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.

According to a survey disbelievers know more about religion than the rest. Religion is a lifestyle. So don't argue about it. Do what you think is right. It will be your 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. - Martin_Canine

2 Taste in Music

This one idiot always makes fun of peoples music but he needs to get a life - footballanytime

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.

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?

Don’t shove yours down my throat and I’ll do the same - blackflower

3 Human Skin Color

More racist in the unted states than the rest of the world combined.

"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

Who cares if someone has a different skin color then you? They are people too! - Pony

Racism is still alive in America.

4 Sports

Hey I love my teams just as much as the next guy but I'm not going to shun someone for rooting for another team. - awesomenessdefined

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.

Some kids in my class act like sports are life or death but it is really just a fun game

Why is that bad? - Userguy44

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.

I don't think you've read the Bible before

The bible doesn't say gay marriage is a sin... Really? Have you actually read the bible or at
Least tried to Google it. Considering we are living in the "information age" your
Statement is lest than well informed buddy

In the Bible's glossary, the definition of marriage is "the unity of one man and one woman." It doesn't mention it, but it's still against it. - LordDovahkiin

Being gay or lesbian It is wrong so just don't argue

6 Mac vs. PC

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

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.

Everyone! Go on YouTube and look up "element animation Mac vs pc" you'll be glad you did

7 Xbox 360 or PS3

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.

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.

My PS3 is the best!

8 Pepsi vs Coca-Cola

Pepsi Tastes more watery and more sugary, but their both cola, so I buy whichever one is on sale :P

Pepsi's better than coca-cola because there is more caffeine in it

9 What Clothes You Wear

I often argue with my Mum about this- I want to wear new clothes around the house (otherwise, what's the point in getting new clothes? And she argues back :(

Who cares If you wear what you wear that's just plain stupid!

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 - kaitlynrad11

I don't care about clothing because I want to get a job in the Marines and I NEED to wear armour to live

11 Best Movies

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!

Everybody has their own taste in movies! If you argue about a movie your not right! You should always have your favorite movie

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

Everybody has their favorite movie like some people might still like the sand lot while others are obsessing over frozen!

Everone has a different taste in at least one thing and people need to accept that not everybody likes what they like. And that everyone is different.

12 Men vs Woman

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!

They are equal. So shut up feminists and misogynists

17 Girls or Boys

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.

We all are equal! - Sugarcubecorner

18 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.

None they both suck

They both make me want to kill myself

One Direction is the worst!

19 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. - Animefan12

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

Burger King is the king of everything

33 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.

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

America had a war over being independent, so saying "by saying that America sucks your pretty much saying England sucks is false

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!

43 Harry Potter or Twilight

Only stupid teenage girls thing Twilight is the best, Harry Potter defined a generation. If anyone thinks Twilight is the best they need to look at the writing style, even the star of the movies hates it!

Harry Potter! Emma Watson is more beautiful than Kristin Stewart.

Harry Potter in a heartbeat. At least it has an organized easy to follow story line.

Twilight is garbage.
