Learn the Facts

Some people suggest that it is a waste of time to discuss and debate people on FB or other social media…..I disagree….I like to discuss and debate at home over a cup of tea and really get into a subject….I find it stimulating and instructive. Although I have strong opinions, I appreciate other people’s points of view….even if I disagree. My only problem is that many people have opinions (myself included) without having all of the facts…..I constantly have to check myself to make sure that my opinion can stand the test of evidence and facts….otherwise I need to hold those opinions lightly and learn from those who have studied a subject in more depth….still, all in all, we need to debate more not less….
