Don’t be so open minded that your brain falls out. Be open to ideas, but unless it is something concrete, be cautious. People will tell you, if you don’t believe in their own line of reasoning, “you are being close minded.” How much I hate that! Are they freaking stupid! What, they expect me to be also open minded to Santa Claus? Just saying, because I am so tired of hearing that people who don’t listen to woos are close minded. By the way, see what is the difference between the two subjects presented in each panel in the picture below? One is based on evidence, the other one was made up by the whim of a person because they wanted to make sense of the world. Be careful of made up stuffs. Anyways, it is a fine and difficult balance, and if you turn out to be wrong admit it.
