Refraction (Bent Thinking) of the Day #37

Ultimate Fallacy (Pigheadedness):  Refusal to listen to an argument or discuss any further. Refutation: There are none. Example –   Bob:  Abby, don’t even begin to give me your reasons for your position on contraceptive use. I’ve made up my mind and don’t want to confuse things with facts. Don’t bring this up to me anymore. Side Note: There are times when it is a good idea not to discuss right then, especially when emotions are very high and therefore it is likely that harsh hurtful words may be spoken. Temporarily putting the discussion on hold would be a better choice here.  If, on the other hand, someone refuses to listen or discuss for intellectual reasons, your only option is to keep loving and respecting them despite your differences.
