"a few days ago I realized that I am pretty much set in my beliefs, and that it would be practically impossible to sway them."

I don't think that's a healthy thing, as common as it may be. Trying to stay flexible as one gets older is a very important task. Don't get too set in your ways.

"I find it very interesting that one person can argue that a statement is true because of 'this fact', and another can argue that it is false because of 'this fact', while they both are COMPLETELY convinced that they are right."

I don't know if I'm a rarity in this regard or not, but I have very few genuine beliefs. The only thing I'm almost convinced I'm right about is my base approach at looking at the world. I make very few absolute statements about the world, and I think it would be a better place if more people did the same.
