Many people think that as soon as they are told something, they are correct! Now obviously that is a very foolish notion!
"Where there is no guidance people fall, but in abundance of counselors there is a victory." Proverbs 11:14
There are two benefits from looking at opposing viewpoints.
For one, but studying other viewpoints, we are better able to change ours if we're wrong! If we don't listen to other viewpoints, how are we to even begin to understand the subject? If we only listen to the things we agree to then we'll be shrouded in ignorance.
For another, by studying other viewpoints, we can help others understand us, and we can better defend our views!
No one can possibly listen to every single viewpoint, but it is best to try and broaden our horizons.
Ok, guys, I want you to try and think of two opposing view points for the following subjects ;)
1: Reasons for American Revolution.
2: Abortion (I do not want to start any religious or moral arguments. Ok?)
4: Gun control
5: Creation of Life and the Universe
6: and finally Logic
Thought about it? Alrighty!
1: The King of England's view and the Colonists view.
2: Pro-abortion and Anti-abortion.
3: homeschooling is bad for children. Homeschooling is good for children. ( :P )
4: Gun control advocates, and Second Amendment right advocates.
5: Creationists and Evolutionists.
6: Those who read The Fallacy Detective (and those who want to) and those who don't read The Fallacy Detective!
Alrighty guys! If you guys have any questions, leave them in the comments and don't forget to just chat:)
(Again, let's not start any arguments about moral stuff ok?)
