Now that I got that off my chest that is not an entirely accurate statement. Yes, there are people who will be your true friends and want to see you succeed and yes, there will be people who will 'hate' and want to see you fail, but there are also people who either don't know you exist but wouldn't wish anything bad for you, people who don't know you exist and don't care one way or the other, and people who know you exist but don't know you well enough to make an informed decision about whether or not they should care.
Nothing in this world, when dealing with humans, is ever just black and white, there are indefinate shades of gray. Just keep your outlook positive and the 'haters' won't bother you as much.
This is a rather narrow view of humanity. There are many more vectors of creation than this one.
But that's your point, right? Say something outrageous and provoke a discussion? Very nice, anyway.
I find many people will be "tweeners." They sit between your UPpers and your DOWNers. Sometimes, it depends on their mood, or perhaps they are highly opinionated on certain subjects and only put you down when you say something about which they entirely disagree.
I'd like to be an UPper, but most of my life I've been a tweener. Sometimes ego and impatience get the best of me. But I'm working on it.
We're all a work in progress. There are conformists, and non-conformists?? I tend to look at others from the perspective of the types denoted in the personality test based on the works of Carl Jung. I urge everyone to take the test for better understanding of thine self, and increased acceptance of others. We're often so hard on ourselves, and even harder on our fellow man.
I think lone star stated it perfectly. I try to be a tweener, which is hard on Hub Pages.
If I were going to lump people in two categories in this online environment, I would be prone to say that there are those who imagine the bad in others; so they have a reason for debate, and those that try to assume the good in others; so that they can find an interesting discussion..
But I am sorry to say.... aint OK... but I'll get over it one way or another. Everything always works out or the best. ,,, whether I like it or not.... That has always always been my phylosophy and ... I'm sticking to it.
What if this happened today. All the news networks, all the world leaders, all the scientists, all the leaders of churches announced that it was proven that God does not exist. Proven beyond any reasonable...

A theist asked me to start a separate thread for this. I refused at first, but then I thought "why not?"Let's understand first that I am not against religion per se. I believe it can help some people. I do not...
