I agree. It's stigmatization to rally the mob rather than a claim to be proven false. There is nothing rational with which to argue. The question is akin to asking how to prove to a tiger that you are not food.
A gentlemanly debate can only take place between gentlemen who have a sense of fair play. Your opponent must have capacity to understand the argument and integrity to concede points fairly. That is the meaning of the phrase "Don't throw pearls before swine." When swine are out of ammo, they will throw mud.
