People tend to hold differing views about sports, food, movies, music, and a whole lot else. Disagreements over these topics are often heated.

In fact, it seems that some matter of controversy on these topics may be exactly the kind of topic for polite dinner conversation. Why? Here’s a possible explanation. Not all disagreement is created equal. Some disagreements are such that we can live with them. You hold your view, you hold that those who disagree with you are mistaken, and you may even engage in lively debate with your opponents when the opportunity arises.

But whether someone is stupid is not a question of what he believes, but rather of the relation between his beliefs and what he takes to be his evidence.
