Don't Challenge My Sincerely Held Beliefs: Not Just A Religion Problem
One thing I have noticed as an adult having adult conversations about everything under the sun... people do NOT like their POV, opinions, beliefs or ideals challenged. It is not just a religious thing.

What I would like to know is what are your "hot button" sincerely held positions that you refuse to yield to different ideas on? You know, the POV you argue continually and consistently and can't wait to proffer your opinion on. We all have them, do you know them, recognize them and do you own your own stubbornness?

This is a bit tongue-n-cheek but also not really.

It's an exercise in personal flexibility. Are you up for it? Smile

I am open to any opinion being changed if I am wrong. Who am I to say I am always right?

Steven Universe is the greatest show in the history of television and I will fight you on the side of the street if you argue otherwise.

Black Adder is the greatest show in the history of television and I will fight you on the side of the street if you argue otherwise.

Fixed. Smile

Huh, can't argue what I don't know... never heard of it and don't know what it is. Tongue

My atheism is probably the belief I like talking about the most and one of the ones I hold the most confidence in. But like Banjo said earlier, I am willing to listen and consider evidence. It's just irritating hearing the same bullshit over and over.

I've watched some Black Adder (funny as hell!) but I've not watched Steven Universe, so I probably shouldn't. Tongue
