What does it mean to be open-minded? I would like to suggest 3 points to consider for those who choose to call themselves open-minded.
- The open-minded person is open to all evidence.
- The open-minded person does his/her own study.
- The open-minded person is only interested in truth.
Ultimately, the truth question needs to be addressed. Those with an open mind are willing to follow the evidence wherever it leads. To be open-minded literally means to be impartial or receptive to new arguments. If truth is absolute and objective, then one can weigh the evidence in order to decipher the correct worldview. A truly open-minded individual cares not what others say or the direction of truth. He/She will follow truth no matter where it takes them. Are you willing to be open-minded or is that just an arrogant catch phrase to cover for your lack of evidence?
