Maybe not a very bright particular, either...walking right into it like that.




I'm not sure how stupid could have a war against it. About 70% of people have an IQ between 85 and 115. Folks with IQ test scores higher than 125 are about 5%. Seeing it from that group, everyone looks stupid, but that group is not immune from stupid, either...because stupid is as stupid does and cannot be grasped or contained.

Sorry, rope, I don't think lm is stupid. Probably some language translation issues, but wtf do I know? FZ battled stupidity, so there's that.
lm, you sure have a knack for pushing people's buttons, don't ya? ;) Long may the cookies bounce, errr, balls crumble, ummm, what?

I'll say both can be lethal.
Stupidity cannot be cured.
Ignorance is willful, so one's will has to change for a cure. So, not necessarily a "can be" situation for Ignorance, more like a "possibly". Wtf, hahaha, weird morning.

But, sometimes stupidity and ignorance are misunderstood. Some people think if they have a difference of opinion with someone, that the other person is stupid or ignorant. It never occurs to most people that they might be the one who's wrong. You have to be open-minded enough to allow other people's opinions to possibly change yours. Otherwise, everyone you disagree with is just stupid or ignorant. Or perhaps, I'm just fucking stupid for thinking that way? There is that possibility as well.

That's what I thought. Imagine a society where everyone was tolerant of each other. What the fuck was I thinking?

Ignorance is bliss. Knowing stuff isn't fun. Education is not pure. The truth is always the truth, no matter what the facts are.

“We are at war — not a war against a religion... but .... a war against against terrorism and radical Islamism, against everything that would break our solidarity, our liberty, our fraternity.”

What breaks liberty?
Subjugation of women, homophobia etc.
Religion.
France is at war with religion...

I would also like to declare that I'm not at war with anyone in particular. Except Arkay and his Aerosmith hate.

Stupid people are people who have not learned the basics, they can be taught...Ignorance is in breed by those you are around you, you can call it opinion all you want, but the ignorance of racially divided south was not a matter of opinion IMHO... :smoke:

I might argue the opposite but it's not a black and white issue. Ignorance is a lack of knowledge or information. In theory that can be corrected. Stupid is stupid and if you're stupid enough there are certain things and concepts that you will never be able to learn or grasp. But it isn't really even a matter of intelligence. Many people will believe what they want to believe. Some intelligent people are not "good" people and some "stupid" people have hearts of gold.

Stupid is not a trait. Stupid is a condition. People of below average intelligence are not referred to as "stupid". People of poor education, or "ignorant", are also not stupid.

Stupid is relative. Because of the grey mix of bias in education, people will always think other people are stupid for no other reason than that ain't the way they was raised, Jeb.

But stupid is not what something is, it's what something does. Reasonably intelligent people do stupid things all the time.The degree to which a person does stupid things can be applied to the person, and the person can be called "stupid", but it is only in relationship to the high degree of stupidity produced by the person.

Ignorance can definitely lead to a lot of stupidity, but so can bad educations.

Case in point: Religion.

So how would you explain the existence of this thread? Unjustified arrogance? Condescension for it's own sake?

Two things I know for sure:
There's no such thing as stupid questions, only stupid answers.
and
Math is not an opinion.
