how does one detach from a view?, do they just say, i have no direct experience of this?
nothing can destroy a man who has lived a pure life

Buddha preach the only wiev:

Sabbe sankhara anicca.
Sabbe sankhara dukkha.
Sabbe dhamma anatta.

Compare the view to the four noble truths and apply the eightfold path when upholding that view.
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

My understanding is that we should cultivate Right View (
Samma Ditthi) Seen things as they are.

This is to be done by practice and concentration. I found it was very dificult to practice non attachment. So I started practicing non anger (Metta). It did not cost me anything!
