  • Fact is something that can be backed up by physical proof that is accepted by the majority. However, like everything else, even facts can be questioned. For example, it's generally accepted fact that vaccinations are helpful, not harmful. Yet, to a parent who's child dies due to vaccinations this fact isn't true.

    Opinion however is something that is ONLY based upon the believers own personal experiences and personal proof. The perfect example is God. For Christians there is no question who he is, that he exists or that he is male. For Pagans, there are many beliefs. And for Athiests, there isn't one. A tree is beautiful, and to some it's proof of God, but for others it's proof of science and for others it's proof of a Goddess.

  • Most everyone knows the difference between fact and opinon. What they refuse to recognize is that facts can be right and wrong.
