One example in my own thinking of multiplicity was when I was younger, before college, I believed that there is a God and that the people that did not believe in a God or believed in a God other than the God I believed in was wrong.
An example of multiplicity in my own thinking occurred when I first learned about the big bang theory. I learned the scientific theory that the universe was developed by a big bang. Before that, I had been told that God created the earth and the universe. This conflicted with what I believed in.
An example in my own thinking that reflected relativism occurred while talking to a friend about politics. My friend, who associated with the opposite party I associate with, was trying to make his case about police violence and african americans. We clearly had differing opinions but i was able to respect his opinion, while still believing what I believed was right.
