    The world spins, societies change, and science challenges our definition of "knowledge" every day. To ignore that is to embrace ignorance.
    I'm far from ignorant thank you very much! It is simply not possible for further information to be presented to me that would ever change my views, ever! There are 2 topics I am referring too. There are plenty of other topics that i am quite open to learning more about and my views may well change on those.

    I didn't say you we're ignorant. The context in which I referred to ignorance was very clear.

    And I'm glad to read this. When I read...

    ... I took it to mean all "matters".

    I would be curious to know more about these topics which aren't subject to changing evidence...

    See that's where I think you and many of us will differ. I have very firm opinions on a number of matters. For example I've been either atheist or agnostic my entire life and am very vocal about supporting not just atheism but anti-theism. However, if I was to be presented with solid evidence that there was a deity then I would be open to re-thinking my position. I think it's really sad when people get to a stage where regardless of any information that is or could be put to them they steadfast refuse to even consider alternative theories/practices.

    I think this is very strange, I don't think I have ever thought that way in my entire life. What is the point of anything if you aren't open to learning new things?

    Reminds me of all the doctors who didn't believe in germ theory.

    I've been trying to get my head around this and have to admit there are topics which I'm pretty stubborn about.

    I'm staunchly pro-choice and I can't imagine learning anything that could change that. I believe in equality for women and the same applies there. I'm passionate about legalising gay marriage and euthanasia and, again, I really don't think there's anything that could sway me there.

    Maybe I'm not approaching this in the right way?

    I've changed my mind on some things and more importantly I've learnt more about things I had no idea about and I think I'm more compassionate about a lot of things/people's circumstances that maybe in real life I would not have had the opportunity to learn about

    I also think that even though there are some things I would never change my view on it is good to read/hear about other peoples different points of view as it gives you a better understanding which it turn opens your mind (and sometimes your heart!) as to why people do/think the way they do

    I changed my opinion on car safety. I thought I was doing the right thing by my DS when he was little and defended my position on it. I was then shown a lot of research and completely changed my mind. I'm now a very big advocate of not just having the right seat so you don't get a fine but for having a correctly fitted and used seat for the child's height.

    The re are probably a few othe things but that was the biggest one for me.
