Just a little thread to see if anyone here has ever had the experience of their stance or belief in a politically-related topic, or any topic really,
being changed because of something you read on ATS or a discussion you had here?
If so, please tell us about it. What was the situation? What helped you to change your mind?
My hypothesis is that most people come here with their mind made up one way or another. They talk about their beliefs and other people agree with them
or disagree with them. But I don’t think anyone’s opinion or belief ever changes. I think most people post and discuss to get confirmation of what
they already believe, whether it’s conscious or subconscious.
You might think you’d like someone to prove you otherwise, but in the end you’ll likely dismiss any evidence against what you already believe,
because of something called confirmation bias.
If anyone has ever had an opinion or belief changed here on ATS especially about something politically-related, or about anything at all, I would love
to learn about your experience.
