A “Steady Belief”

A lot of people claim to have a steady belief, or firm conviction in things such as religion, political stance, moral views etc…

Not to seem contemptuous, for I commend people who have beliefs and can defend them, but the fact of the matter is the majority of the people don’t really believe or even truly know their own beliefs.

These people in reality don’t have a steady belief but rather a stubborn belief that, faced with all the discrediting evidence in the world, won’t change or shift. The same people who will ask you to stop a discussion when you present arguments they can’t refute and at the same time they wont listen to that argument, they will just ignore everything and return to the peace of their “steady belief”.

In the end I guess everyone has the right to their beliefs, whether it is a steady belief, or stubborn belief all the same. And if you’re presented with evidence and still want to believe in the tooth fairy, good for you, just too bad the a system is not fool proof.
