only way to deal with close minded people is not discuss issues for which they are close minded..for any discussion , one must be having a room to atleast give a thought to other's perceptive..if that is missing , one cannot discuss...it is simply waste of time..dont enter into argument with close minded people because that would end up making them more convinced about their convictions...
i'm sure there's really no ex way. i'd move on & not argue w/ them. leave them behind in yer dust. i'd known of those ppl & it just doesn't pay 2 convince them
Dealing with closed-minded people, or I should say, trying to have an open debate with anyone closed minded, is simply a task that cannot be accomplished. Religion is an example of closed-mindedness. So is atheism. You can talk until you are blue in the face to a Christian to try and convince them of other explanations beyond the Bible, and they are as good as a child with their fingers in their ears chanting "na, na, na, na." Same goes for the atheist. Neither will hear the other's argument nor take any possibilities beyond what they believe to be true as an alternative.
Politics is this way as well. In many ways there are many scientists this way as well.
I say, it's not important to try and "deal" with a closed-minded person. It is better to simply be happy and feel relieved if you happen to be an open-minded person. It is a liberating gift.
Keep it in mind that the key to discovery is asking questions. If no one ever did the world would still be flat and the moon would still be made of cheese.

If you're opened-minded and think that someone else is closed-minded, are you closed-minded?When you say something you feel is open-minded, and someone contradicts you, and you think they are closed minded, wouldn't that also make you closed minded?

President Obama is determined to close Guantanamo Bay. People were angry about it, tweeting he should've been closed it. I tweeted that the President isn't a king here, he can't decree Guantanamo Bay closed etc... He should be able make executive orders without votes but that's not our system....

Do you think that because someone has chosen religion, they are closed-minded people?Once you choose what you believe, there is nothing else. Does this make you closed-minded?
