    You need a better example Saizou. Saying the earth is flat is a statement of fact , not an opinion.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    That is not a fact, it is a fallacy.

    Go back and check be0wulf's last post. Saying that the earth is flat is a statement of fact, but it's also clearly a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty, and/or a personal view, attitude, or appraisal, i.e. an opinion.

    That's basically what I've been saying the whole time. Opinions that deal with external reality can be factually right or wrong.

    People can form opinions such as superiority of a race. For example, one person can come and say that the white people are the superior race, and that the fact that most of the biggest countries are "ruled by white people" is a proof for that. That person could also point out all the developments that have been made by "white-people countries". Obviously, that person would not be taking into account the fact that, throughout history, most cultures have taken part in developments such as science, technology, philosophy, arts, etc. That, and that there have been big and powerful empires in history like the Mongolic, Chinese, and Islam, which were not ruled by white people. There are other facts beside those, like Asian countries growing a lot at the moment. Even so, that would be that person's opinion, and just because it is an opinion, it doesn't mean it cannot be wrong.
