Asking questions isn't bad. But a person should ask questions only after listening a lot. This guy doesn't appear to have listened much. That's why he
received harsh responses.
I'll give him credit for asking questions, though. Many people are content with just memorizing and grinding their lives to dust. At least they
reproduce; their children can be different.
Usually I look at brainstorming as good. But when it comes to science, it's only practical to think outside the box if and when you already understand
all of it and know what is out there.
This does not apply to somebody that's SUPER SUPER intelligent. If there're seven billion people on the planet, there may be a few thousand super
super intelligent people. But I think we need to limit it to the top of the top. So maybe there're a few hundred people on the planet who do not need
to know the science in order to make better science. It's like looking at a machine and instantly producing a better machine without even knowing the
machine blueprints; that would require a super godlike almost alien intelligence that sees things we don't and produces answers at unheard of speeds.
We would all be ants by comparison to this person.
But what are the chances this guy/gal is SUPER SUPER intelligent? 200 in 7,000,000,000? People here that're critical are just calculating the odds in
their head - they're being reasonable.
6,999,999,800 of us should be listening and reading more than we talk and pontificate.
And this is hypothetical. For all I know, NOBODY is that smart! (there's no free lunch?)
NOTE: In a few months (or so) there WILL be seven billion of us!
