How do you win an argument without knowing anything about the subject being discussed?

if I didn't know anything about the topic being discussed I would listen to the points that the other person is making and try to find holes in his arguement.
Sometimes repeating back the point to the person can get them to trip up.
When they do, take the opportunity to bullsh1t as best I can.

I make an effort to avoid "arguments".

To 'argue' implies one has an emotional investment in your side of the debate, therefore, it is probably a no win situation for those involved.

You don't. You acknowledge the fact that you are not informed enough to provide an adequate opinion.
