Tell me I'm wrong. If you're a Christian you will tirelessly argue your point, and if you're an atheist you'll do the same. If you're pro-choice
you will argue with anyone who doesn't share the same belief until they agree or walk away. If you're pro-life you'll do the same. If you believe
we shouldn't test on animals, you'll throw blood on people and all that PETA crap. If you are against animal rights you'll wear bear skin at PETA
rallies just to spite them.
The arguments are endless. They can be as mundane as proper whiping technique after taking a poop, or as complex as the meaning of life. We all
develop our own line of thinking and for the most part, maintain that same line of thinking until we die. Sometimes we might change our mind about
things, but it's not usually because of an argument we have with someone else who gets us to see the other side. At least in my case, when I have
changed my mind, it was done on my own.
The fact is, we are all guilty of this behavior. We all argue tirelessly about the dumbest of things. Go to a youtube video of anything and read the
comments. It's all just a bunch of arguing and calling people names. I know that's just the internet and real life isn't always like that, but in
real life we do argue with people over our point of view all the time.
Why do we do this? Why is it that our human psychology dictates that we must argue our point to the death, when it is simply an exercise in futility?
We're not going to change each other's mind, so why do we even try? We need to just live and let live.
