Can I ask you to do a little thought experiment with me? Think of a title, a label or a word you call yourself: Christian, Atheist, Buddhist, Patriot, Humanist, Skeptic, Agnostic, Hindu, Muslim, Vegetarian, Pacifist, Marxist…
Now, imagine that someone were able to clearly show you that your understanding of that word was largely inaccurate. Are there any self-labels that, after this enlightenment, you would go out of your way to not surrender? Are there labels that you’d want to keep and would far rather redefine — even if radically — than to discard and find a new label? Have you ever done that? What type of a label was it?
If so, what is that all about?
