I recently heard that people are reading my blog, which is pretty cool and exciting! However, when I looked over the comments, it seems like everyone was just agreeing with me. Which while great for my ego, isn’t really great for the sake of discovering truth.
So, here is my request, if you are reading the blog, please post your points of disagreement as well. Only through disagreements can we better get to the true truths of life, and that is after all the main point of this blog (well, besides being an outlet for me).
If you know me, which you may or may not, you will know that I will not take offense at your total disagreement to my post. I have learned that often times there are two equally valid sides to an argument depending on perspective, and sometimes there are, in fact, two truths. However, often times the goal is to figure out if there are two truths, or just one truth, and the only way to know this is to argue with no chips on ones shoulder, with no preconceived notions, and with an understanding of the other person’s position as you communicate your own point.
By taking this mature attitude, you can work together to arrive at the truth, which after all, is the ultimate goal, isn’t it?
