I occasionally see people say they don’t have to prove their reasoning for a lack of faith due the burden of proof being on the other side to make such a claim, and that makes sense, I always assumed the burden was only on you though if you were trying to convince someone. How big of a deal would you say this sentiment is when holding an opinion? I’m curious as to how to engage in discussions of rhetoric regarding this specific component. I do not aim to force anyone to my sentiments I just wish to convey my perspective while showing that I am not anti-intellectualism.Some people are quite fierce on that and I wish to promote open minded coexistence. I suppose if I had to defend myself in such a debate I would say it’s a value judgement with how I trust Jesus, how I personally interpret potential evidence, and that I think it is more open minded to not force someone to one opinion in a somewhat binary angle as opposed to the open sharing and discussion of various sometimes conflicting opinions.
Thoughts? How do I carry myself in a reasonable way? Thank you very much.
