    If everybody didn't think that we knew so much already,

      We might be ready to learn so much more.

      If everyone knew that they already  know all tthings then they would not seek to hide anything.

      And that which they seek to hide is that which dominate them.because it gives reality to ignorance which has becomes themselves.

          The nature of this world is so because men believes that ignorance exist.....therefore it does and it begins with themselves.

          But Truly ignorance cannot ever exist unless men make it so and those who do, faces the consequences which is they become Ignorant and this is called death..

      If believers took the time to think and learn things, they would know a great deal more than they do and begin understanding that we do indeed know a lot of the world around us.

       

      You can only learn more when you actually think and understand, Jerami. Believing in gods and other such fairy tales is the antithesis of your reasoning.

      Ya know? smile

        I was agreeing with ya until ya came to the last sentance.
          You are assuming my Idea oF what God is, is the same as yours.

          And before you ask, No,  it seems as though I will never be able to explain to you how that works.

            Sometimes it is not the ability to to express a thought but the willingness to accept it long enough to examin it.

      but it seems most people on this forum have minds shut as tight as a fish's bottom - watertight

        I always heard it as referring to a Fog.

          But Yes  I think all of us have a touch of that, unfortunately here are  some who are  ATE  UP   with it.

      Someone who truly understands wisdom over the course of their lifetime is likely to say:

      "If I didn't know then what I don't know now..."

        Yep   If I had known this body was going to last this long ...  I woulda took better care of it.

          Read it again.

          Those who have accumulated knowledge say:

          "If I knew then what I know now."

    I do like the way you think jerami. You're right. Some have closed the book, and some think they've written the book. As far as I see it, there has to be a book, but the pages are written in, what so far appears to be, invisible ink.

      Sometimes what we are looking or is hidden in plain sight.

         Tripping all over it, cause we are looking way over there.
      I've had many of those moments when I ask myself ...     "Why didn't I see that before"

    It seems to me that as I get older, all I really know is how much I don't know.  That doesn't mean I'm going to give up learning things, but I sure won't make the assumption that I've already learned it all.  smile

      Sometimes I thing , the more I learn, the further away from the simple truth I am.

          When we become confused because we don't undrstand all the facts, we don't need more facts. 
         When we get confused we need to back up and rethink  what we already think we know before we add to it.
         First figure out where we are in our thinking, before proceeding farther.

        I think there's some wisdom in that.  We forget some of what we learn so quickly that it probably behooves us to take stock of what we know and pull out long unused knowledge before pursuing more.  smile

          True  and when we are pulling out that unused knowledge, we need to also be looking for that which does not belong.

            We should be looking for those misconceptions that we used to hold onto.

             As out thinking progresses we usually discover outdated thoughts which we should not keep holding onto.

             As new thoughts are stored, they do afect the old thoughts.

            Or something like that.

    Motown2Chitown  you seem to be very well center balanced.

      Not too far to the right or the left. 

      I think the truth lies somewhere streight up the middle.
