I think education is what can repair ignorance. It seems that a lot of believers don't even hold everything in the bible as literal.
It says that God is unchanging, yet the old testament doesn't count.
They say they hold the ten commandments true, but then they say the old testament doesn't count.
Do You see the contradictory nature of the believer?
They pick and choose, trying to validate their own version of what is true and what is not.
But, you can't invalidate your own argument, if you're trying to prove it's validity.
It's crazy, all around.
If you reverse the words "bible" and "science" the statement is just as true.
The ignorance is perpetuated by the congregation, but also the believer.
If I reject everything I see as untrue, then I am being ignorant.
But, in the case of rejecting the bible, I'm being quite reasonably sane.
Rejecting that which appears to be untrue is intelligence. Believing what appears to be untrue is perversity, and believing nothing is ignorance.
Ignoring what others have to say, is being ignorant to that person.
The word ignorant can be applied to just about any situation, doctrine, thought, presuposition or to whatever you want to apply it.
Does that not make your own use of it in starting this thread rather pointless?

It is quite understandable for the rationals to pity the believers for their purported ignorance and obstinate adherence to their religious beliefs. They think they know the truth which may well be the case. What I do not understand is the way they put down the believers as though they were some...

A fine fellow posed a very interesting discussion today. You should visit his pages at http://zelkiiro.hubpages.com/ But I speak to something that came up there. Should religion interfere with straightforward empirical science and the logic and actions dictated therein. In my studies I read...

I'm not here for a fight, honestly. I am a Christian, but not a mainstream one, and certainly not a fundalmentalist. I can't imagine not being a spiritual person I love my spiritual life and only regret that I don't put more into it than I do. I have to say, that I'm not too...

I'm wondering how people feel about this subject around here.I truly believe that Mormons are sincere Christians, and that the majority of people who don't agree are simply ignorant to Mormon beliefs, or the Bible.I would like to hear, do you agree that Mormons are Christians? If so, why not, and...

Why can't God and evolution coexist?I am curious about the division between the concept of evolution and the religious mind... why can't God and evolution coexist? What are the rules that define the scientific process of evolution? Can those rules be applied towards religious belief?
