It's easy. I am not an absolutist. I don't pick examples and say "this proves X" and ignore cases where it does not. It is easy to pick a side and decide that is the way to go. It is also easy to become entrapped by dogma on any subject.
I question everything. When I find things that are false I do not assume that makes everything false. Likewise when I find things that are true I do not assume the rest is true as well.
Admittedly my path is not easy. I see people (and I have done it as well) who try to simplify problems. Yet in the process a lot of things end up being conveniently ignored to support the narrative.
Good vs bad Bacteria
Here is an easy concept to explain this good/bad.
Parasitic vs Symbiotic
Some bacteria have a symbiotic relationship with their host. Other bacteria seem to have a parasitic relationship. I am not calling them PARASITES in the traditional since but more as something that consumes without concern for the host.
You can see this in human activity as well.
We do some actions without concern for the impact on the environment, and then sometimes we are hyper focused on the consequences.
