When nobody is ever wrong what is the point of a discussion?

We all try to be as right as possible but it leaves no room for discussion and usually ends with insults to make a statement of being more right.
We pretend to be scientists because (we think) science is right and therefore give the impression of being right.

We repeat what was said before what is right, but therefore not true in a current situation, just to give the impression of being right.

Do you know how foolish that looks?

I have read this sentence.....

.....at least five times and even though it seems to be English I just can't understand what it means.

?!??!

Are you saying people agree with a statement or an idea to kinda fit in even if they disagree?

I think I get what you are trying to say. That it is important to each of us to believe we are right in our beliefs. So, whatever we believe we need to believe at the same time that it is correct. I guess this is simple but it does have ramifications that often go unthought about.

This notion of right and wrong is a false spectrum of ''either/or'' and much like ''good and evil''. These absolutist scales have been bred into our thinking from way back to the earliest philosophers and in simpler times were taken on as truth.

But now that we have greater perspective on history and human thought we can see that those absolutist spectrums severely limit our ability to get along with one another.

I find that not believing helps me to see various sides of arguments and taking all that I encounter in the way of information with verisimilitude. This means to consider everything not in terms of right and wrong but rather in terms of degrees of truthfulness. And even then it is pragmatic such that the truthfulness or rightness often depends upon the situation.

not sure if I get your OP. the things I argue about, I am certain I am correct. If I didn't believe I was right, I wouldn't enter the discussion, as I would be seen to be an idiot really fast. But I have had my opinions challenged, and at times changed. But you won't convince me that chemtrails are real, socialism is good, or patriotism is bad. Or that Masons are secretly ruling the world through neighborhood lodges. And I don't really care how foolish it may look. I promise you when I look at the other side, it's equally as foolish.

Beliefs steer what we consider right or wrong. You can tack all sorts of evidence to prove what you think is true, yet maybe that evidence is not applied correctly nor is it pertinent to what it is being applied to. Scientists have a lot of beliefs that are wrong, everyone does. There is not a clear cut way of judging what is right or wrong sometimes, consensus of the time also is entangled in that. Society is what picks what is right or wrong most times. so do governments. society can be wrong, scientific evidence can be wrong or wrongly applied or gathered, and governments and religions have their imputs in the matter.

Just do not break any laws and do not get drawn into discussions you cannot possibly win because someone is twisting or misapplying everything. Some here twist your words to make it look like you are saying something different, or are parroting false information that society seems to accept.

Don't fret, all will someday be straightened out, we do not have to worry about this stuff after we die of old age.

Political viewpoints are opinions.
Neither right or wrong.

That's just not true which is almost wrong.

No.

It's wrong. Sorry.

Edit: sorry but I wasn't really sorry earlier but I'm kinda sorry about feeling insincere about the apology so I'm sorry.
