The world is full of knowledgeable stupids!

Knowledge is gathered from learning and education, it is merely having clarity of facts and truths. Wisdom is the practical ability to make consistently good decisions in life; it is a state of being wise that grows wiser with life experiences.

Knowledge is gained from the outside world; it is an ever-growing process. One may gain knowledge over time or even lose it when things are forgotten. Wisdom comes from the divine and inner self; it is not lost once acquired. If a man is wise, he will exercise good judgement throughout his life.

Knowledge is the facts and figures and applying them for use in everyday life. But they may or may not be the right use. Dropping the atomic bombs on Japan during World War II was an application of knowledge.

Wisdom is the understanding of the facts with common sense and good judgement for the right cause.

Knowledge is learning that a tomato is a fruit while Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

Today, you can find more knowledge on a single bookshelf of a library than you could find in all of the libraries in the world a few thousand years ago.
Despite this vast increase in knowledge, the question is, are people necessarily wiser than people were a couple of thousand years ago.


“The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people are so full of doubts”.
Bertrand Russell

Very good.

Small minds talk about other people,
average ones about events
and brilliant minds speak of ideas.

All you Kritters seem to be all of the above
at once, which strikes me as a good and
pleasant way to be :)

Me, I'm a Libra,
so I pretty much never took a decision in life chuckle.gif

And, to conclude, I always want to finish my rants with:

Of the truth,
I know nothing
(other than that it comes whence nothing is expected in return) -
all I say about the world is only and strictly what it looks like to me.

But all that gets too long and tiresome to type.
I'm sure all Kritters catch me drift here...

That's a summary someone wrote about Bertrand Russell's book.

It struck me especially for 2 reasons;
1. Knowledge and wisdom are not the same - and we better be aware of it at all times.
2. Being past middle age, I can confirm that people today are not wiser than at least 40 years ago.

Few original ideas come from knowledge. The studying of any particular subject boxes one in to a degree.
Wisdom is where the fountains of real creativity flow, or at least that's the way I see it.

You shouldn't listen too much to what is said about star signs. Indecisiveness isn't automatically applied because of you being a Libra. I'm a Libra and make decisions left and right chuckle.gif

And Putin shares your birthday, he doesn't strike me as very indecisive damned.gif

are you sure?
for example Nr.1 in the chart 'Extreme Poverty' - is it the problem or is it the result of other problems?

The world produces enough to provide everyone in the world with at least 2,720 kilocalories (kcal) per person per day according to the most recent estimate (FAO 2002, p.9).

That's a good point. It means distribution methods are out of whack, and those involved see lives as expendable, or they are simply incompetent.
The way the cold cruel world gig is run, my bet is on lives are expendable.

not sure. found it when I was flicking through some pages. you can never trust statistics. for university I have to present statistics with most essays and I use O.N.S statistics which I'm not sure about but as long as I get good grades I guess that's what counts.
