Title: Avoid the Use of Unsupported Opinions

Avoid the Use of Unsupported Opinions As Evidence

Why is it important to avoid the use of unsupported opinions as evidence?

  • Unsupported opinions can weaken the credibility of the writer because the reader may lose their trust in the writer.
  • Strong opinions may offend the reader, who may feel differently about the issue or have a personal connection to the opposing view.
  • Opinions without supporting evidence can compromise the strength and perceived validity of the paper’s argument because such opinions may overshadow other trustworthy evidence.
When should an opinion be left out?

An opinion should be left out of an academic paper when it:

  • cannot be supported by credible sources or reliable research.
  • is informed only by personal experiences, religious beliefs, or strong emotions and not by relevant date.
  • can be replaced with a more compelling point.
How can an opinion be properly stated and supported?
  • Identify the root of your opinion: What is your opinion based on? If the answer is related only to personal experiences, religious beliefs, or strong emotions, you will need to do some research to ensure that credible sources are available to back your opinion.
  • Locate credible evidence that supports your opinion: Look for specific evidence in your research that supports your opinion. Citing an authority in conjunction with communicating your opinion will help strengthen the credibility of your claim.
  • Establish a connection between your opinion and reliable evidence: Demonstrate to your reader that an opinion used to support a point has been informed by research and credible sources. Connect relevant research to the opinion as clearly as possible.
Let’s look at an example:

Unsupported opinion: I believe that the current ‘anti-bullying’ campaigns aimed at today’s adolescents are useless and will only create a future society that is full of wimps. Supported opinion: ‘Anti-bullying’ campaigns targeting today’s adolescents may create a future society that is unprepared to cope with conflict. In support of this idea, noted psychologist Peter Smith explains that while reports of bullying decrease with age, the frequency of bullying remains the same across different age groups. He attributes this decline in reported bullying incidents to the fact that older victims have developed valuable coping mechanisms to help deal with bullying (Smith 336). Smith’s idea suggests that bullying may not always be detrimental to the victim, since building coping skills during adolescence may contribute to greater resiliency in adulthood

Then you're no longer stating an opinion. You're stating a fact.

Your counterpoint is true as a generalized statement.

However, I can think of one instance where the author is correct. There may be others instances.

Take the situation as it applies to the “opinions” by judges - “Judicial Opinions?”

Judges are normally required to provide a “well-reasoned basis” for their “judicial opinions.”

How do judges get a “well-reasoned basis” for their “judicial opinions?”

Could it be that the “support for their judicial opinions” is “informed research and credible sources?”

One could say, “yes.”

A judge's opinion and my opinion are two different things.

His opinion (conclusion) carries the weight of law and is based on legal principles. Mine can be based on little more than rumor and gossip.

Having read and carefully considered the contents of your intelligent ant logical posts during these number of years – If given the choice, I would respect your opinions more.

Accept the true compliment …

His opinion (conclusion) carries the weight of law and is based on legal principles.

Yet any two of those fine legal minds may often issue completely contradictory opinions.

Emmet Sullivan is a case study in the perversion of principle.

Just too many professionals around who take pride in making the worse appear the better cause.

I've got more regard for a rattlesnake. I usually know what it is that's going to make him bite.
