Depends on what you mean by \"need\". Technically we don\'t need TV Tropes at all, it\'s not oxygen, we won\'t die without it. But it\'s all fun and the real life section so far doesn\'t dampen the fun.

Just an idea for a rename: Seinfeldian Confrontation.

I pulled the following:

  • Creation vs Evolution. Yes, the answer does have valid theological implications, but one side relies on ancient writings where multiple interpretations exist and the other side relies on scientific guesswork that's just as open to interpretation.

Sounds like use of the Golden Mean Fallacy to make an equivalency between creationism and evolution in terms of factual support. I think I sense that this was written by a creationist.

Yikes, that is just an argument waiting to happen.

True, I'm a creationist. But the bottom line is that both sides take the fighting way too far for something that is ultimately kind of inconsequential to everyday life. I'm going to put it back, but I'll try to better explain the "scientific guesswork" bit.

EDIT: More comments came in while I was writing this. On second thought, you're probably right on the Flame Bait; so never mind.

Considering the fact that the Pirate vs. Ninja debate is considered by many to be serious business and is well-known to pretty much everyone while the trope namer comes from a television series that not everyone has watched, I propose that the trope be given a more instinctive title.

Going by the page quote (which might have been added after this post), looks like it's from Buffy.
