halacha otherwise, *in that same scenario*. If the disputants are each

would not be demonstrating much wisdom in arguing and bringing evidence for
their opinions. If you say it's daytime and I say it's nighttime, but you
are talking about  one side of the earth and I'm talking about the other
side of the earth, we would be foolish to argue.
