I was talking more with my brothers. Dunno about your parents, but ours weren't huge on listening to us fight or dealing with the injuries, so we'd all get in trouble for that shit.lol mine weren't even close. My dad ALWAYS told me to stand up for myself, and especially for other people. If someone was picking on me or someone else, his solution was to hit them and see if they stop. If not, hit them harder. And it IS effective, though sometimes causes suspensions.
I mean, that's cool, but I feel like responding to the comment is about the extent of what you could reasonably do about it anyway.And you would also be wrong. But go ahead anyway, I don't care enough to really do anything.
Aptitude by that definition is synonymous with intelligence.No it isn't, that's aptitude. And what are the other factors then?
I didn't imply that their views were wrong, just that their refusal to assess new or outside information is indicative of their intelligence, or lack thereof.So what? They made a different justification than you did, most likely because of some strict religious and moral standards they set up around certain aspects of society. Tell me, why is it OKAY to be gay? What makes YOU right and THEM wrong? The exact same level of justifications they use, only to argue against it. There is no difference in how you achieved your end result.
I was open enough to learning about them to bother doing a bit of research on their church. I get that they're taking select passages from the bible in a literal sense while ignoring other passages that might dispute them, which is hypocritical and makes no logical sense, to be frank.You don't appear to be very open to learning more about their opinions. Why should they be to yours?
Cool, bro'.And I can say the same thing about you and the vast majority of the world population.
What new information? Anything that's happened since the bible's been written that doesn't coincide with those select few passages.No, it shows their unwillingness to change. What new information has come out that shows with a good level of reliability that some part of their belief is nonfactual and should be amended?
