All I know is no one knows anything

I had a philisophical chat with a friend last week. He said that he enjoyed these types of conversations but was rarely ever able to have them because most people he knew would just tell him to "shut up". I know that philosophical conversations aren't everyones cup of tea but, for the most part, it is one of the only types of conversation that every human could participate in somewhat equally and for the most part, be correct in their point of views cuz not one person existing has absolute evidence of anything being "true fact". I find it interesting that some people are so set in there ways that they actively refuse to discuss matters such as religion, politics, society, human nature, etc... I mean, to each their own but, personally, I enjoy hearing other peoples insights on these topics. It sometimes help draw a clearer picture of who the person really is and may give you a new perspective on things. I think the key is to share ideas rather than attempt to change someone elses viewpoint (of course, this would also depend on the situation). I also think that there is a time and place for everything therfore, if we talked so deeply all the time it would more than likely quickly become tired and monotinous.
