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

Debating God's existence is interesting and exhilarating but since there are so many theories which can't be proven, the whole topic is actually more pointless than a blue whale trying to mate a snail. - Britgirl

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.

Pointless is if two people argue about facts that can't be changed. Gender 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. - Martin_Canine

*sigh* Justin Bieber?! One direction? - ---ChargedZircon---

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

Pineapples are in my head

got nobody cause I'm brain dead

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

i am a field hockey player - definitely not ice hockey

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.

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

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

To people who say that the Bible isn't against same sex marriage: In the Bible's glossary, the definition for marriage is "The unity of one MAN and one WOMAN." So there. It doesn't directly speak out against it, but this still means it's a sin. - LordDovahkiin

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.

You guys can't just white-out the correct answer. How the hell are people supposed to know Nintendo is best?

Xbox is better than gay station

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

They're both good and taste the same to me :/

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

Today for lunch I had SAL-MOON and coke and the coke spilled on my SAL-MOON and the SAL-MOOn turned brown and started to bubble yum yum in tum tummmyy; ::::))))))))

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

10 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!

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

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!

Hillary clinton voters (femminists) aren't can't stop complaining. - ---ChargedZircon---

14 Hottest People

Again I'm the clear winner of course - awesomenessdefined

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.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - happyhappyjoyjoy

15 Coolest Cars

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

I do not want a sports car as they are for speed and not luxury and I will be in the Marines and I need a off road vehicle

You didn't buy them with YOUR money. This is indeed a pointless thing to argue about. - Animefan12

16 Democrat vs Republican

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

Neither... Vote batman

Republican - LordDovahkiin

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. - Animefan12

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

Anime is the best

18 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.

No.Donald trump would probably just say the opposite thing

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.

None they both suck

They both make me want to kill myself

Who gives a
