    Here, here said with a bow of honor. I agree Alancaster149. I agree with the "laughed at" emphatically, yet offer a glance at "laughing with" even when wrong is recognized. Experience with being incorrect is not new, of me at least, part of learning

    No right or wrong? So to murder someone in cold blood is... only an opinion? Murder is possible, so... does that mean it's permissible? You could argue that the murderer is not "rational," but what constitutes "rational" or "irrational"?

    We all need to accept when we are wrong, and not feel any less of a person, but as a stronger person for not allowing insecurities or ego to get in the way. Communication would be much improved too.

    If what you say is fact and someone says it's wrong, they remain false and wrong and what you said remains fact. Their need to impress is a problem. You being true is no problem. Wanting them to see truth can become a problem, and is often futile.

    Ericdierker, nobody likes to be wrong, but admitting to it, or even learning from it sure puts you in a better place. It's all about acceptance and a peaceful life...when I see or hear a person insisting on being right, it just makes me laugh.
