I’ve heard a lot of people use the word indisputable lately.
That word makes me laugh. First because it’s funny sound. It makes me think of those times when you have some phlegm in your throat and you can’t clear it to spit it out.
The other reason it makes me laugh is because anyone can find a way to dispute anything. Someone may be wrong but that doesn’t seem to matter anymore.
Ultimately the claim for indisputability (not a word) is a statement of belief. It’s a strong statement of belief, but it is still a statement of belief. Until people who use the word indisputable realize the incredible faith that they are putting in the idea they are about to put forth, they won’t be willing to hear what another person (who might dispute said idea) is saying.
This is highlighted during election season, but it shows up in the office, at the dinner table, in churches, in bowling leagues. We all need to take a minute to remember that humans are a people of faith. We tend to put our faith in all kinds of things.
That is indisputable. :o)
