That is understandable, and if you have years of experience to sure your belief, one conversation is unlikely to alter it, but I feel people have to be open to learning new information. Once you have decided that no matter what information you learn, your opinion will not change, you have decided that being right means more than what is true.

It's human nature to hold to your beliefs, like people who declare themselves religious/athiest. In most cases it takes a long time to convert. One debate won't shake someone's blind faith or confidence.

2+2=5 for extremely large values of 2.

It's a joke, but if you don't control for rounding
2.4(rounds to 2)+2.4(rounds to 2)=4.8(rounds to 5)

I did intend for the topic to be about opinions and beliefs rather than mathematical constants, but I can see that I made it too vague.

My first sentence stated "Not necessarily"

Okay Kirito, but what if what you are believing is wrong? And there are many undeniable facts that prove it.
A person's mind has to be open to change otherwise they become ignorant

Not necessarily, it depends on what you are not changing you mind about. Like for instance I can talk (text, type) all I want but that isn't going to change your mind. When you say that nothing will change your mind, you are saying that you are going to stand by what you believe in.

2 + 2= 4 change my mind about that. Simple facts cannot be negotiated. If you were more specific and said "opinions" or "views" in your topic, I'd agree. But I'm just being nitpicky.
