I find that when I am open minded in an exchange, I am often the only open minded one present. Just for one example, since we are using Dan as an example -- I have lost all track of the times that Dan has insisted that "Atheists believe in nothing." I know. It's small of me. I lose equanimity. I don't think it small, and Dan can rub a few people the wrong way. He has that gift. I might have been one of them, but I can't honestly recall. Here's the thing. A person 100% secure with their convictions shouldn't need to debate whether or not the belief of others is true. If they're belief is absolute in their minds and heart, they'd feel secure enough to have room for additional ideas. They'd be comfortable discussing other beliefs without verbally expressing their skepticism. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
