We really love to say "A 100%" whenever talking about anything. Just to show the depth of our logic. Well, we lie every time we say this. And if I say that no one's going to like my logics about "A 100%" that will be another lie. So, why "A 100%" isn't 100% at all?
This eternal life is a mare simulation. Here we can't get everything perfect, can't have everything in order. Mess is an inevitable disposition of this life. We can try, but at the end of the day we'll not get everything as we expected in expectable expectation.
In this world, nothing is 100%. We can't pretend something before happening. If we do that would be a partial made up story. Everything in this world is unpredictable. We can't apply cook-book formulas in this real life. And this is the reason we can't have anything in Cen-percent.
Life isn't 100% harsh, although we say it very frequently. Not all the doctors are commercial, not all the men are potential rapists, not every girl has greed for money, not all the Muslims are terrorists, not everyone is kind to see the truth. Its true for everything we can possibly imagine (except the Almighty creator and his blessings for us). There is some percentage but its not the whole picture. Still we feel undeniable temptation in resting all the weight on one side and saying "oh I know he 100% bad guy, or 100% of the girls are phoney, blah blah.
Its really irony that people love to prove bad things as a Cen-percent, where good things don't stand a chance. Its not like that good things have been extinct, but its the very rule of nature that good things don't spread much. And likewise, people don't try to exaggerate anything with goodness in it.
We, human have a very bad habit of concluding about the whole population depending on the sample we face in our life. It's good for statistics but real life is one whole random process. So, we can't judge things with our little knowledge. Most of the people especially young are not keen to see the real happenings. They just love to throw their judgment from their own experiences and use this "Cen-percent" theory. And these are the controversies of " A 100%".
People, who know little, are prone to judge everything very fast. Everyone's situation is different from others. We don't know who is going through what. Judging before knowing is also prohibited in most of the religions. We can learn from sermons about this. But to our surprise these people really love to conclude whatever they can see with their two eyes. Judgment must not come from a poor knowledge. It takes years to understand people's behaviour for professionals and we average people are no match for them. Yet its far away from judgment.
Judgmental view causes anarchy and it is the opposite of peace. "A Cen-percent" controversy is one of the main reasons behind this. This ill-psychological condition may not affect much if it is a small group of people. But there are alarming numbers of people who are pretty much this type.
"The more a person knows the less he talks" this adage always proves itself true. Our knowledge (not the pride for it) is the key to solve every kind of problems. And it'll also keep us away from turning 100% into controversies.
