Open Minded ?

The phrase "Open Minded" gets thrown around a lot these days. I had a friend on twitter peek my interest on this subject by saying that people who believe in God are delusional. At first this offended me because I believe in god, and as a result took his statement as calling me delusional. The truth behind the statement was A. Circumstances he has dealt with in his life has lead him to believe this statement or B. He just is a sheep and repeats anything he hears or reads and takes it as fact. Now like I said I believe there is a god because of situations in my life have lead me to believe that is a fact. I am open to the fact that there is no God and I understand that there are people out there that believe with all their heart that there is no god. Does that mean I believe they are delusional? No! That just means the path their life has taken them on has lead them to believe that. The society we live in are very quick to judge people, and trust me I am as guilty as anyone of judging others. Which brings me back to my original point. I believe if people would take the time to learn about others journey in life before they judge is being open minded. Just because you do not see life in the same regard as I do does not make you wrong, it just means your life has taken a different path than mine has.
