Those Who Cannot Reason, Cannot Be Reasoned With………..


Pretty much, yeah.

intellectuals to idiots

The sad thing is that school is , if not totally mandatory, at the very least strongly encouraged in at least SOME form. Last time I checked at my local schools, stupidity and shortsightedness were not part of the regular curriculum.

To see what is going on around me makes me really quite sad.  When did logic, reason, & common sense disappear, to be replaced by super-concentrated fear, hate, and rhetoric with no factual basis?  At what point did folks ability to engage in intelligent discourse vanish?  Somewhere between many & most of the conversations I have nowadays seem to fall into three depressing categories [1] Yeah, you may be right, but what difference does it make?  Nothing can be changed. [2] I don’t care, everybody is crooked, and everybody lies. I don’t pay attention to any of that stuff. [3]  No, you are wrong!  You are going to HELL because your beliefs go against my personal beliefs!  Sometimes it is just so depressing to live in the deep South.  Sigh………

    “Sometimes it is just so depressing to live in the deep South.”

    As George Gurdjieff said, “There are no good places to find enlightenment, but there are some bad ones.”

  2. I’m not sure when it became a bad thing to be educated. It has nothing to do even with religion, or creationism vs evolution, it’s just about fact vs whatever lies these crazies choose to believe.

Talk to me......
