Arguments one sided.

Debate is discussion.

Ebate is a broader form of argument than logical argument, which only examines consistency from axiom, and factual argument, which only examines what is or isn't the case, or rhetoric which is a technique of persuasion.

As per me...

putting your views either positively or negatively is a part of debate...

argue refer to prove your self correct.
