Just Pondering Part 383

Another-Nice-Pen.jpgThese days, it is very easy for a person to get themselves into trouble. All they have to do is, simply say something that another person is not in agreement with.

If we were to examine the mindset of human beings, we would immediately know that people don’t think 100% alike; we may have similar interest in certain areas, but we have different interests and beliefs when it comes to certain things. For example: Richard and Darryl have been childhood friends; they like the same sports teams, but their taste in Literature is different. Richard likes Emily Dickinson and Darryl is fond of Pablo Neruda. The two are always having fierce debates in regards to who is the better poet.

I have seen with my own eyes the way some people treat those who have different political and religious views than them; they would look at those people as though they are insane or stupid. Some have even taken it to another level by inflicting violence on those people who adhere to different viewpoints.

The reality is: people will always have views that differ from our own. But, the problem starts when some of us makes a personal decision to start a war against all those with opposing beliefs.

  1. This is fact, it is human nature to exaggerate our points of disagreement. Two people who believe in God would argue for hours about whose religion is “more correct”, throw an atheist in the mix, all of sudden they are on the same team and respect each others’ opinion..

  2. Truth is relative to the individual, people become separated by hubris seeing their truth as more important than the human being they are dealing with.

  3. Too often people will say that their view is the right and that no other view is possible to exist. There is no way to reason with these people as they are too set in their ways. I have a friend – was a friend – like this. He wouldn’t just disagree, he would argue vehemently. He would argue so hard that his face would go red and he would look like he would explode, and of course he was never wrong, as his view was the only one possible.

    This is how a jihad is started.

  4. In the end, you have to notice that not every one has the same view as you and you have to accept different opinions. Also you can ‘t be always right. You can never please every one , there will be always someone who does not agree with you, but that is no reason to get angry.

  5. Very wise! People are like snowflakes… no two are ever exactly alike. :D
