Not sure i this is the right forum for this but f not I'm sure the mods will find the appropriate place for it. Now please don't just go flaming me
for the title alone. At least hear me out as this should be short and sweet. I think we will all have a similar understanding of this in the end.
First I will just give the deffintion of ignorance.dictionary.reference.com...
[ig-ner-uhnt] Show IPA adjective
lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned: an ignorant man.
lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact: ignorant of quantum physics.
due to or showing lack of knowledge or training: an ignorant statement.
Now, I don't believe there is a single human being who knows all and has experienced all this world has to offer. If there is then I am ignorant of
his/her exsistence. So it would seem that we are all ignorant of something or another. An example of my ignorance is my lack of knowledge in political
procedures and other such things involving politics. I hate politics and all politicians with a passion.I stay away from most political conversations
as to not let my ignorance of the subject get the better of me.
We here all day and night here on ATS the term ignorant being splattered around. We all know the site motto "Deny Ignorance". I think there is a
large number of people who believe that means they should spend their time trying to rid the ignorance of others. I would like to think that the most
important aspect of out motto should be to deny our own ignorances first. Anyone who has been around here for a little time should see how the
arguments just keep repeating themselves over and over.
So when you find yourself in a pursuit to attack someone elses ignorance, remember to stop and think about your own. We could accomplish much more
with these resources if people could accept that they don't know all. Ignorance is not inevitably a bad thing. I was much more ignorant to many
subjects when I first came to ATS, but I have spent much time researching the subjects I have interest in. Now I find less ignorance with some subject
yet more with others.
I guess the point of this is just to get some people to think. There is alot of hatred and arguing going on and ignorance lies within it all. I have
no problem admitting my ignorances. So what say you ATS? What are you ignorant about?
