C. Wright Mills “Sociological imagination is the capacity to shift from one perspective to another. To have a sociological imagination, a person must be able to pull away from the situation and think from an alternative point of view. It requires us to “think ourselves away from our daily routines and look at them anew”. To acquire knowledge, it is important to break free from the immediacy of personal circumstances and put things into a wider context, rather than following a routine.”

Perhaps believers and nonbeliever could benefit from looking inside their respective box to think for themselves and eliminate baggage placed in their box by others.
