You've seen my position--people have different experiences and backgrounds, and me trying to talk you into believing what your entire life-experience has taught just isn't so, (or vice versa: me trying to talk you into disbelieving what your entire life-experience has taught you is definitely so), isn't going to work.

For some people, these things aren't definitely so or not-so, they're just "what my parents/teachers/Big Brother always told me". I can see persuading people like that either way, if you have a moving argument or good evidence.

In the former case, and often in the latter case, because how often do you really have to change someone's worldview[1], basic respect and courtesy means getting to know and believe the concept of "we agree to disagree". Or in the old days, it was, "Don't discuss religion or politics at parties or family dinners".
