Manatita44- We all have different level of understanding and abilities, but we assume that experts are the best in their fields. Yet there are different opinions amoung the "experts". Is the term "expert" over rated? Thanks for your answer.
Expertise is based on experience. Additionally, some people are blessed with an inner Light. Wisdom is an inner quality, scholarly attributes are not necessariliy so. Sometimes over rated, yes. The Christ knew far more than the scholars of his day.
amen-- agreed. an ex spurt is a has been squirt of water and any expert that does not have the facts to explain his "opinion" is not a really an expert. As in Christianity, many claim the name but do not measure up.
PandN- Many who seek expert opinion"assume" they will obtain the correct answer or opinion for what ever they seek. Which is why many rely on "experts". What good are so called experts if their opinion proves to be false. Many thanks PandN
