### What are Truth Validity and Soundness?

In Debate, specifically in a logical argument, Truth is a premise that corresponds to the way the world actually is. Validity in an argument is that if the premises are true, then so is the conclusion (it is possible for the arguments to be valid even if the premises are false). Soundness is when the premises is true and the argument is valid. To reiterate, arguments cannot be true (only statements can be true), but they can be valid and sound. When an statement is true it goes along with the way the world really is. When an argument is valid, then the premises and the conclusion are logically connected in such a way that if the premises are true, then the conclusion must also be true. Saying an argument is valid does not guarantee that the premises are true. When an argument is sound, the premises are true and the argument is valid, so the conclusion must also be true.

### When you are building an argument for an issue that is significant to you do you think it is more important to be valid or sound?

For an argument to be valid, it means that if the premises of the argument are true, then the conclusion must be true. Validity has to do with the form of the argument. If one or more of the premises are not true, that does not mean the argument isn't valid. Soundness means that the argument is valid, and all of it's premises are true. It's a little redundant to say "both valid and sound", because if your argument is sound, then it must be valid. It is important for an argument to be not just valid, but also sound, in order for it to be convincing.
