Personally I feel that if I have formed an opinion on some political or social issue, I typically have done my research on the issue and feel strongly about my opinion, as I'm sure most other people do as well about their own opinions. I generally don't get involved in arguments or debates about those type of issues because I guess I feel like, I know that my mind can't be changed on the issue, and so I assume I'm not going to change anyone else's mind either, so why create conflict. Not everyone feels this way and I think that's great because although I don't like to debate political or social or religious issues, I think it's probably beneficial for people who enjoy it to go ahead and debate as much as they want. Anyway, my question is, does anyone feel that they used to have a specific belief or opinion on a political, social, or religious issue, and when you were in a debate with someone about it, the other person actually influenced you to change your mind on the issue? I'm not looking for specific political statements here, I'm just curious if anyone has ever changed your mind to where you've switched to the other side of the issue or something similar.
