Question of the Moment 42

Do you think you could ever rebel against something that has been drilled into your head your whole life as being the truth? Has this ever happened before?

I don't really know if i could unless there was a lot of evidence to support that what ever has been taught to me is a lie. For instance, Pluto being a planet. That was taught to me my whole life and then now all of a sudden its an escaped moon? For awhile there i refused to believe that was true and still called it a planet, but now I've come to terms with believing that it is not a planet anymore. I guess that means i can't, because when i was first told it was a lie i didn't believe it until time went on and more and more people believed it, which is just the sheep effect, not rebelling.

Are you a rebel? Let me know in the comments below =]

  1. I still believe that Pluto is a planet. I don't care what anyone else says. I remember on The Magic School Bus when they went to Pluto. You can't erase that from your mind.

    So, yes, I am a rebel. Lol.

  2. Hi, Becky. How have you been? Sorry I haven't been by in awhile.
    I'm probably way too conservative to ever claim to be a rebel. The only things that i can think of would be politics and religion. Probably far too heavy for a Monday. ;) I won't reveal either, for the sake of ticking off half of your audience; however, in each case, I went against the grain. My parents shaped me in one direction, but I ended up going the opposite direction. When I speak to my sons about these subjects, I try to explain to them why I think the way I do, but that they need to see whether it seems true to them. I really want my boys to think for themselves.
    Thanks for asking.
