As people grow and learn, they change their opinions and stances on things. At least, one would hope. As the saying goes, some people mature, other people just age. I would hope that as you mature, your mind opens. What’s that saying about as you know better you do better? At any rate, I was recently reading a blog post about how the author had done a complete 180 on a few things that had either been previously found exciting or had stood as just awful. I hope this means the author has opened his/her mind but in reality, I think it’s just succumbing to peer pressure.
It could also be simply a matter of word choice. Some of you know that I am a lawyer by day and paranormal investigator by night. I recently took a job as a litigator at a firm for some really public companies- trust me, you all know the companies for whom I work. In law school we are taught about a case that cost a cell phone company many millions of dollars over where a court decided a comma should go. If I use the wrong word, my clients could lose some money, too (but thankfully not millions). Anyway, so if you told me you were allergic to nuts and I said I would never serve you peanuts your next question (I hope) would be, okay- what about all the other nuts that may kill me?
Likewise, not every sun glare is an angel nor every orb a ghost or every shadow a being, etc. etc etc. But if you change it to a different word choice, like say “UFO” instead of “space ship”- have you changed your beliefs or just your words?
