What is one of your deeply held opinions and what would it take to change it? -

I've got one:

Upwards of 90% of people sperging about Trump/the news media's treatment of him/Mueller/basically anything else Trump related, rather pro or anti, are only mad because they're hearing opinions they disagree with and are trying to couch it as being some sort of stand that all Americans would take. If it were a Democrat in the White House and the same shit was happening all these people would have the exact opposite opinions.
And most of the people sperging about Obama were the same.

God bless partisan politics.

Vegetarianism and veganism are beneficial to society, health and the environment.
What would change my opinion? Actual proof that giving livestock billions of tons of food and water to produce methane is good for the environment and to humans in the long run.

I believe a lot of people on this website tend to virtue signal a lot and are not being fully honest about their opinions. Note this isn't confined to a single political side doing this either.

But who knows? Maybe this says more about me than anyone else.
perhaps its bleed-over for some, natural for others? also given the situations that can arise and quickly spiral out of control which then leads to losses to which at times can be grievous be it monetary or socially. it may be people simply play it safe or some other reasoning.

The Rappala Shad Rap is the best hard bait for trolling walleyes, but the berkely flicker shad is almost as good and half the price.

Death sentence for pedophiles. I don’t care what they did, you are not meant for civilized society.
I'll go you one further. None of that pussy lethal injection or electric chair shit. They don't get to die that easily. I'd want to see a pedo's death drawn out and last for hours...days, bring back that medieval tortured to death mentality for them.

Nothing will change my mind. You fuck kids, or support pornography that depicts it, you've given up your right to be called a human.

One of my deeply held opinions is that most of society descended from a rapist and/or warlord, and I thought this after watching a documentary on Genghis Khan. Consent was nonexistent in times like that, but the conqueror killing the males and raping/fucking the females led to him being related to apparently 1 in 200 men in the world currently. He wasn't the only guy in history to do so, and he wasn't the first. I think if we did an ancestral test/family tree on everyone, most of us would be connected to someone like Temujin. Not much could change my mind but any relevant stats

It's all good until you realise that child molestation and rape cases are skyrocketing because it's the new way to commit assisted suicide for free. It also puts more pressure on prisons to hold people awaiting execution and legal services are stretched to the limit because actually executing somebody takes a really long time to do legally. If it was as easy as this to solve the problem we'd already be doing it. I don't think using children as a sacrifice to help people die is a good idea.

, what do you think of the crowd that basically says 'poor people shouldn't have kids'? And with the statement that poor women have a higher fertility rate than richer ones
You know, on second thought reading this again, I also think some people might say that for tribal reasons, considering some groups are overrepresented among the poor. A non-racist way to have a racial position perhaps.

Oh ya for sure, violence is absolutly the answer when it comes to pedophiles. Personally I’m of the opinion that we should crucify them by highways. So everytime you go out for a drive your reminded of what happens to degenerates.

Yeah, but you also see this when rich white people talk about white trash. So it's not just racial.

Comedians aren't funny. There's nothing funny about a middle aged loser telling you a life story. I laugh when people are making asses of themselves, not trying to get you to laugh with them as opposed to at them.

Mostly rudementry moral stuff like murder is wrong, their arnt any good reasons to violate a human being. As well as obvious imperical truths such as fire burns, I will die.
These could only really be changed by a extreme revelations about the nature of the universe such as I'm the dreams of sleeping god or some weird shit like that. Or if I developed some sort of psychosis.

The only one I can really think of is that consistancy and stability must begin with oneself as a foundational point.
That could probably be revised by life experiances. contradicted this and I went through a period of personal growth on the subject.

Beyond that I always try to remain open to growth. Saying you're completly impossible to persuade you about as complex nuanced subects like politics, philosophy or science implies especially if your opinion is really incendary, absolutist or goes against the grain implies you've got shit for brains. Since you've tacitly implied being proved completly wrong will not sway you.

Reform justice is the best model of justice and should form the basis of the penal system. Punitive and retributive justice are the result of animal instincts trying to foster prosocial behavior, but we can use our forebrains to devise better incentive schemes than "If a man steals, he shall have a hand cut off" or "If a man steals, he shall be flayed to death".
To change my mind, you would have to produce solid evidence that punitive or retributive justice schemes produce a healthier society were people are more prosocial, instead of creating a perverse incentive for antisocial behavior.
