"It is just you opinion", "It is just your hypothesis", how many times have you heard this dreadful criticism from someone after you give your point-of-view? Yes, it is just my opinion. You know what else is also my opinion? It is also my opinion that psychics are fake. It is also my opinion that horoscopes are wrong. It is also my opinion that you should not gamble with lots of money that you need. It is also my opinion that free speech is worth protecting. All of those are my opinions, that does not make them wrong. When Darwin wrote the Origin of Species that was "just his opinion". When Issac Newton wrote the Principia that was "just his opinion". When Albert Einstein published the theory of relativity that was "just his opinion". What kind of response is "it is just your opinion", or "you are just forming your own hypothesis"? I tell you what kind of a response that it. It is a response of a retard. A response from a person who is unable to refute anything of what you say so the only thing he is able to do is say "well that is just your opinion".
I agree, it is "just my opinion". But that does not make it wrong. Especially when I can defend my opinion quite well. All ideas that we now take as true have been opinions at one time or another. One who criticizes another person by saying "well that is just your opinion" is an enemy of intellectual progress. Because before we can find out what is true or not we need to form our opinions and battle our ideas out together before we can find a definitive way to show that one view is correct.
What do you want me to do? Put on a lab coat, write "PhD" next to my name and show you some fancy pie charts statistics? Because that if what sadly seems to convince people, having a well reasoned argument does not convince them.
And the same thing with the response that I hear from these retards when they tell me, "everyone is entitled to their opinion". How am I supposed to respond to something like that? That is so stupid beyond belief that I have no idea how to respond to something like that. Yes, everyone is entitled to their opinion, not everyone is entitled to have their opinions respected.
The next time someone says "it is just your opinion" or "everyone is entitled to their opinion", please stay away from them. They are enemies of intelligence. Where did this attack on human reason even come from? I am blaming college. That is the only place that I can imagine that can make people to think in such a dumb way. The one place which is supposed to be the marketplace of ideas turns out being the place that kills creative ideas because "everybody got an opinion and we have to realize we just have one opinion among many".
Sit on my middle finger, whoever you are, who criticizes me for "just having an opinion". Better yet go kill yourself. You are worthless to the human species. Kill yourself to improve our gene pool.
