as a philosophy major it is my responsibility to tell you that is not what "begs the question" means. It has nothing to do with raising the question, to beg the question is to commit a logical fallacy of circular reasoning. That is, you assume to be true what you set out to prove.
Whichs begs the question, if everybody uses a phrase with a different purpose than it's original use, which usage is wrong?
the wrong usage is still wrong
I beg to differ.
Or does that mean something different too?
