I’m thinking more and more about how people arrive at their conclusions and how in debates people are often not honest about their reasons for believing something. I am fed up with people who will come out of a conversation with exactly the same attitudes they came into it with absolutely regardless of the content of the discussion. I suspect that people who do this don’t base their opinions on logic and evidence and usually don’t even really hear what you have to say, they’re too busy asking themselves whether you’re the sort of person they’re “supposed to” agree with. Are you liberal? Maybe you’re not even a christian! Can’t be caught agreeing with someone who’s not a christian, that would somehow make me less of a christian.
That sort of crap.
