No. It makes it unyielding. Which can be difficult to deal with, but not neccessarily wrong.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/9/04 - 7:22:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Um..No. What kind of question is this?
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/9/04 - 7:24:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
An obvious question that I thought would not get accepted. But the other one was rejected. And I wanted to hear from anyone who would say yes.

Yes, Always!

opinions are just that. now if they were saying "this is a fact," than yeah, they would be wrong
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/14/04 - 4:55:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
^ Exactly. There are no rights or wrongs in opinions, no matter how crazy they might seem to the majority of people.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/14/04 - 4:57:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all. My opinion about having opinions is extremist.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/14/04 - 5:26:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm okay with calling opinions "wrong," and while extremism may be warranted in the most desperate of times, I also think the truth (again, if there can be such a thing with opinions) is generally somewhat closer to the middle.

It's just annoying when people try to pound their opinions into your head and expect you to frickin' care.

Individual beliefs/preferences is what rules whether one finds anothers opinion to be correct or incorrect...
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 11/22/04 - 8:42:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
What if you are extremely correct?
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 11/22/04 - 10:10:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, it makes it extremely controversial and frequently disagreed with.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 11/28/04 - 10:41:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
depends on the degree to which the extremist ideals r made known. i know i've got a head full of rubbish like that which i think would make the most radical PETA spokesperson blush. but PETA was just an example..

There are no rights or wrongs in opinions, no matter how crazy they might seem to the majority of people. << and i could call this right or wrong, and either way i'd be right. and someone could come along and tell me otherwise. and they'd be right too, but only as long as there's not someone else in line waiting to say that it's wrong. it's all very circular.. i think very few of us see or choose to see it that way, and it's a very difficult, vague, and chaotic road to take and it leads to severe neurosis. such is the origin of the world and everything that's a part of it. "but that's just my opinion." >:
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/13/04 - 1:15:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, but it doesn't make it right either.

there is no right and wrong, just a concensus among the majority of the population that is always changing.

i dont think that an opinion can be wrong. you can disagree with an opinion, but that does not make it wrong.

Copernicus was of the opinion that the planets - including the earth - circled the sun. The belief at the time was that the sun and the planets circled the earth.

It was an extreme opinion - one that was in opposition to the opinion of the entire world - but it was right.

It makes them a hell of a lot more interesting, that's for sure. There's nothing more boring than a "mild" opinion, right or wrong, extremism brings about good discussion.

Well, no doubt, Rosa Parks was considered a woman of extreme notions when she decided she would no longer ride in the back of the bus.

No, being extreme does not necessarily mean an idea is wrong. Sometimes, extreme ideas shape the world in positive and necessary ways.

Opinions can't be wrong or right
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 2/21/05 - 11:48:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
It could be visionary.

Jesus was an extremist..
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 3/8/05 - 8:38:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
Jesus Wasn't Wrong ^

Why can't opinions be wrong? If my opinion is that 2 plus 2 equals 9, aren't I wrong?
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 3/20/05 - 5:46:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
