We have our shortcomings, but part of the human genius is the ability of being aware of them and addressing them, correcting them. We're not perfect, I know, but even some aspects of ourselves that on the surface seem stupid, like religious faith, require the amazing ability of abstract thought. Some of our stupidity has roots in our amazing intellectual capabilities.

A baby requires the immense complexity of hand-eye coordination and the even more complex cognitive drive to experiment with taste and sensations when it puts the dog's tail into its mouth.

Doesn't meant it's not a completely fuckin' stupid thing to do.

Dolphins. All they do is frolic, and have sex. And laugh at monkeys. We dumb.

Humans are inherently ignorant. Stupid is a choice. Especially in the information age.

Hey, Critical.

Cool.

It strikes me that if all humans are stupid then stupid looses all meaning. Stupid describes a lack, but if we all lack it, then where we are isn't stupid, it's the average.

Peace and Love and Empathy,

Matt

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.
