Handling Contradictory Evidence

Oddly enough, an argument is often more convincing if you cheerfully admit that there are some strong arguments or facts which seem to counter the point you want to make. You present these arguments--fairly--in such a way that you lead up to a resounding "however . . ." as you deliver your counter-argument. And since you are in charge, you will of course make sure that the defence has no right of reply.
