I would have different views if I grew up with yours. Let's face it, we believe everything our parents believe (well, mostly. To some extent)!
So let's get back to water.
America doesn't necessarily waste water, it just takes it for granted. Sagar's right, it is just recycled. But we really need to APPRECIATE our water.
I do not repeat what my parents say (mostly because it's nonsense).
But I agree that some kids are copying their parents' views, and following it blindly. If children were raised to not believe in anything, to not have biased views on race, religion, or politics, they would become unique, and what they want to be.

For example: The earthquake in Japan. We should forget about politics and just help.
Those ar natural disaster, so yes we should help. Those are catastrophes that were mere chance, they couldn't have been avoided.

But we shouldn't waste our money helping countries build infrastructure.

I agree, though I don't repeat my parent's views at all. My dad is a more spiritual Hindu and he believes in an inner consciousness and meditating and stuff, and accepts that praying to ten-armed gods will hardly do anything. My mom is extremely superstitious, and not only follows Hindu tradition literally, but also believes in Feng Shuii and stuff.

A certain movie *coughTheQuantumActivistcough* convinced me now that there might probably be a God or Quantum Consciousness, as the movie referred to it, but still my views are self-reasoned and come from a variety of sources.

And you can't blame the people on here that repeat their parent's words.

Jack is homeschooled AND lives in the country, so the majority of people he meets are family and others of his own belief.

Leia seems kind of young, give her a couple of years and she'll start questioning. Its a psychological stage, called Formal Operational Thinking that starts at adolescence.

A.A. is young AND homeschooled. 'nuff said.

So a movie made you start thinking God was real? You call others immature and impressionable, yet you seem to be, too.

What else would? Every thought you have is because of prior experiences, welded together into something psychology calls a "schema"

Yes, your views are based off of your parents beliefs, the movies you've wtched, the books you've read, and your prior experiences.

The movie had a big impact because it seamlessly explains paranormal phenomena that is proven but unexplainable, such as telepathy, without adding in the mythical elements of religions. Just watch it. The conclusion just feels right, with the evidence, through quantum physics, and through the common elements of all religions.

What I denounce is when a belief set for life is made on just one influence. My belief is not set. If you can convince me that there is a better explanation than that presented in The Quantum Activist, I will choose that one.

Yeah, but it's just that a lot of the people on these threads (the politics ones) are what? 12-15 or something, so still repeating what their parents are saying. Face it, environment changes us!

AA is 10, I know... and I'm pretty sure Jack and Leia are about 12... that's not all that young...
I think some of you guys are a bit quick to discount a person's viewpoints because of their age. A lot of people just copy their parents' opinions, I know, but I think that has more to do with the individual person than their chronological age.
