    The way I see it, you can never take anything as fact from someone’s mouth.. It’s always a perspective which I guess would make it opinion. All you can do is view the world from your perspective and form your own opinion. Just make sure you THINK! Shout out Sakiya

    you ask the person who is talking if – what he is saying – is his opinion or a fact! :)

    on the other hand, facts and opinions don’t have much in common (my opinion – not a fact :-) .
    I mean, out of context you can often tell if a person is expressing an opinion or a fact!

    I believe that an opinion is never wrong, but facts, on the other hand–is either wrong or right. “I love you” is an opinion, “the sky is blue” is facts. =)

    You just have to be armed with the knowledge to know the difference. Being well-informed is more important than being opinionated.

    I truly agree with you “deacon”, however, having an opinion is the highest level of thinking. and for those who does not have their own opinion is not worth being around.

    I totally agree “thewht.com.” Since factual basis and personal preference are needed to form a coherent opinion, I strongly believe that opinions would not exist without facts.
