Mouse or arrow keys?

A lot of people seem to think that the mouse is better than the arrow keys, why?
who uses which? I like a good debate :D

I started playing FPS' with this game (and some brief encounters with Doom / Wolfenstein and their ilk / age-group). I ALWAYS played with the keyboard (no mouse). Then, got a console system (PS3), and started doing some FPS there (COD, BF), and on the PC, having tried to learn to use the mouse for the FPS games, so now I use the mouse.

However, I still love the 4 arrow keys - good times.
