@deadrat sure, spread it around. When I get it back up, it'll be the best website on the internets.

comment Can you respect a belief you don't agree with, and that you find morally reprehensible?
That's a truly bizarre notion to me, and renders the use superfluous. Maybe that's why I've never heard it in that context. Perhaps that context is religious? Something akin to "respecting your parents" being a maxim, even if they molest and beat you? I wonder how that came to be? Trying to make sense of word that clearly doesn't belong, so it lost it's meaning.

But, you're defining respect now in your example by the lack of a show of disrespect.. That's Cartesian. I will consider every belief. That's part of the process of discarding it for a valid reason. Does that mean I respect everything that has entered my mind?

@deadrat no, so your contention is that respect is more related to admiration?

This is the total opposite of what everyone else has suggested and hardly makes sense. So using these definitions you'd say, "I used to believe gravity exists as a force of nature, but after discovering the Higgs boson I don't just believe it exists, I think it exists."

@Daniel I forgot that on this and other SE sites, democracy is a low priority. It's just like typically ballot access suppression.
