(note the reintroduction of rules 1 and 2 below).

Opinionated is a Subjective definition, which by that very nature lacks consistency.

That opinion changes in the face of new evidence, which makes your understanding, more complete. Thus shaping your opinion from a different initial condition.

Recognise those two? Godel’s first incompleteness theorem.

Given the conclusion that it is impossible for any formal system of axioms to be both consistent and complete at exactly the same time, this means if one person’s view is more complete than another’s, their respective opinions will naturally be inconsistent. Whether that is with each other, themselves through temporal variations over time, or even the evidence (ie they’re irrational and deluded).
