It's often occurred to me that many people really never consider the things other people say once they've gotten themselves in any kind of argument or discussion where people have strong opinions. Especially in places such as this. There have been times I've posted stuff, and someone's come back with something that made me think differently or reconsider my position, and I fessed up. I've realized however, that that's definitely not the norm. Seems more often than not people have a need to simply prove themselves right, and they'll go to incredible extremes to do so. Like they don't even consider the information someone puts out - they just argue it. Endlessly. How open minded do you consider yourself? I consider myself fairly open minded. A few things I feel real strongly about (a vegetarian diet is healthier than a meat eating diet, for one) and it would take a lot to change my mind, but if you have info that would disprove my beliefs I'm open to it and I'd love to hear it. I'd rather be informed than right. EDIT: IF YOU CLAIM OPEN MINDEDNESS WE'LL NEED TO SEE EXAMPLES IF YOU WANT US TO BELIEVE YOU!!! One of mine is in post #10. I'll post more if and when they come up.
