That trick was a staple April 1st thread for several years; one of them was holding top spot on a busy Recent Posts page for about half an hour before it got shifted. Nobody bothered, or it got stomped on, this year or last.
I thought the OP's link might be the same thing, but was mistaken.
If anyone avoided it for that reason, it's safe to go back and check again.

There are too many people around here who would never put a tomato in a fruit salad, to paint any one of them into a portrait meant to define wisdom. Even an ATS version of The Last Supper would not contain enough individuals to capture the essence correctly.

To me it would have to be bigfatfurrytexan. He is totally not the person I expected ( I know I shouldn't judge based on names but I do sometimes)
Anyways he is hilariously funny at times and some of the post logical and well rounded posts have come from him.

I once looked at my 13 year old niece's Facebook. On there were "Like this post for a rate"...

What's with this craving for assurance and craze for voting and rating people? Life is not a TV show where we judge each other. That's the point we start failing.

Yes, we have to give praise and show credit where it is due but at the moment, on ATS.... Like for a rate anybody?

imho . . . wisdom is:

1. The reverential awe/'fear' of Yehovah. Anything less--particularly if one has had any significant contact with Yehovah of any supernatural substance at all--anything less is terminal cluelessness, ignorance and/or terminal stupidity.

2. Knowing what to do, in constructive terms, with the knowledge one has.

3. Knowing HOW to do the loving thing regardless of the circumstances.

4. DOING the loving thing, regardless of circumstances.

5. BEING a loving person, regardless of circumstances.

6. Caring for the fatherless, widows, abused, hurt, hungry, homeless.

7. Humility in thought, word and deed.

8. Taking the lesser seat and position out of true love and affection for others (not out of a kind of pathological self-deprecation).

9. Patience in thought, word and deed.

10. Compassion.

11. Empathy.

12. Calm strength in chaos and crises.

. . .

One of my pet themes jingles my attention yet again . . .

imho,

It is obvious that folks with significant degrees of Attachment Disorder

CRAVE, desperately NEED repeated, relentless, bottomless-pit VALIDATION

BECAUSE

Daddy did NOT SUFFICIENTLY fill their love buckets--particularly with strong but gently affirming bonding and healthy affection and attentiveness the first 6-8 years of life.

That resulted in literal physiological brain damage in 2 areas--the area managing emotional expression and the area managing relationships.

Such folks will play catch-up the rest of their lives unless and until they work most of it through.

I've managed with tons of work over many decades to mostly work it through--but it still plagues me.

I do think that one can get a head-start toward wisdom via

--a wise grandfather, father, older brother, mother or mentor.
--overcoming horrific adversity at an early age. I've read of kids with horrible physical problems or accident damage show wisdom beyond that of a 90 year old.

Sublimecraft and TrueBrit are two who I notice bring a lot of insight to these boards. You can always count on rational common sense discussion from these two members.

Higher Light Answers for Questions.

Menguard has 141 pages of posts of answers to questions from him alone not including questions in that thread. I think that probably far exceeds any "ask me anything" person to land a spotlight on here correct me if im wrong. And the best part about it is he was just another ATS member, not an invited guest. I was lucky enough to have a question of my own answered by Menguard in that thread 9 years ago and his wisdom was profound enough for that thread to remain in my mind as something of significant value in my life.

For many reasons this thread and especially Menguard really stands out among my ATS memories.

I encourage all of you to read this thread.

I enjoyed "Xpat888" and "cheesy". Gone now but not forgotten. Both had their individual views on topics which were constructive and not condecending.

Kind regards,

Bally

The entire ATS community is full of very smart people.

Lol, call it pragmatism, I don't know about wise though.

I heard a definition of wisdom opposed to knowledge.

Knowledge is knowing what to say, and wisdom is knowing WHEN to say it.

Not sure who said that, but they had wisdom.

To be the wisest here in ATS would you have to have the narrowest knowledge in a specific subject or have the broadest knowledge in all subjects ? this I do not know but one thing is for sure here in ATS - we are all on the Quest for not only knowledge but truth.
