Yes it is.

The argument springs from the points put forward to support that contrary position.

Why agree with anyone?? Just attach yourself to a group of like minded weirdo's and get on your moral milk crate. And judge away.

Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes.
