You admit your opinion could change due to experience... I think we agree bro

I wasn't trying to disagree, I was trying to say that putting it all down to whether I experienced it or not, or the depth of my experiences, is faulty.

YOU are saying that the depth of my experience is important because it is a defining factor in my beliefs and principles.

I am saying that the depth of my experiences is irrelevant, since you do not have to directly experience something at all in order to have a well informed or conscious opinion on it.

In another way: You are arguing that my desire to help starving African children is limited in direct correlation to the rate in which I myself have starved, while I am arguing that whether I was starved to bones or fat my entire life, it holds absolutely no sway over my levels of compassion or desire or ideals, as they could just as easily relate back to observations or similar experiences. You see?

You can understand something without experiencing it, I agree. But this understanding will change with actual experience.

"It's safe to say I can't comprehend a Holocaust survivors perspective on the Holocaust"
"And if I did experience the holocaust I'm sure my understanding of suffering would evolve substantially"

Either you can comprehend something without experiencing it or you cannot. That is, either you can understand something without direct experience in the matter, OR you must experience every individual trial in order to properly sympathize with those who have gone through it already.

Your understanding of suffering cannot 'evolve' if you cannot understand the suffering of anyone who's trials you haven't gone through, you see?

Of course you can't, but that doesn't mean you can't have an opinion on it.

You don't HAVE to get shot in the face to recognize that getting shot in the face probably really hurts and is generally to be avoided.

You don't HAVE to go through 15 years of heroin addiction to understand that trying heroin in the first place isn't worth it.

Even SAYING that a holocaust survivor would be the world authority ON the holocaust is folly, since the scope of human perception for any single experience is wildly small.

Who do you think has a better chance of winning a race, someone who's done the same lap a hundred times and has tripped over every single hurdle, or someone who has never done that lap and understands perfectly what the former racer is doing wrong and exactly what he himself must do in order to win?

Both is optimal, of course, but it's hardly true that experience trumps observation, because wisdom isn't about experience, it's about perception. It's about knowing why people lose the race and what it must take to win it.

We know. I personally believe that even though other know, they enjoy taking the bait and arguing more then simply ignoring it. For some of the more entertaining comments are the arguments sprung from bait. It's a vicious cycle and one cannot live wit out the other. And yet we crave it. So yes. We know it's bait. Yet we take it anyway. For the thrill of the hunt.

but anyway, the point is you opinion about relationships is likely to change with experience. So really experience is quite relevant in this case
User avatar

In that case, won't his too?

I'm not arguing my opinion won't change, I'm arguing that him ASSUMING I ONLY disagree with him BECAUSE I have not had similar experiences only limits him, and will do so in every interaction.

He genuinely believed I held my opinion because I haven't had experiences that he's had, the thought that my opinions were developed WITH experience or observation never crossed his mind, but only that they were formed from a lack OF them. It is this that I am criticizing and calling folly
