  • i think to but i don't think it would be civil. if someone doesn't have the same beliefs a conversation turns into an argument very quickly

  • Sure, it's possible...is it a good idea? Probably not with most people.

  • Depends on the maturity level of those involved.


    There are many of our friends that we have superficial conversations on the subjects with, then we have others that we DO NOT even bring up those subjects or anything that could be related to them. We also have a very small number of friends that are willing to discuss, probe, consider and evaluate the opinions of others.

  • I think if both people agree to disagree, you can have the conversation. It's when someone feels the need to convert people to their way of thinking that problems arise.

  • Sure, but just because you can does not mean that you should.

  • It really depends on the people involved. As we see here, some are more capable than others of accepting differing points of view and understanding when it comes to belief.... The same would apply for a larger scale of people. There are those who can discuss calmly, respectfully, compassionately, and there are those who can't.

  • Doubtful. I find most people will defend their belief's and not consider other views despite how open minded they claim to be.

  • Yes. It is the humble approach and giving and recieving respect of both parties. That has been my experience and I do it all the time.
