Philosophy and Dumbness

“Classes ought to exist among philosophers too. There are some who can be classified as plain dumb.”

How fair is this statement?

fair enough… :astonished: :stuck_out_tongue:

100% fair.

Quick excerpt:

“…And this leads us to the conclusion which you could also have gotten from my adventures in getting to Newark. Which is this: People are stupid.”

I like that… fairly accurate too.

There a couple very analytical people here… but… yeah.

I am smart, and all of yous ahre dumbs

I don’t disagree. ‘There is a very thin line between wisdom and stupidity.’ Some dabble here, some dabble there and some dabble in one place far more then most. Hubbard once stated: ‘Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day. Wisdom consists in not exceeding that limit.’

I think he was on the right track.

Five minutes!

Crap. I haven’t got a shot.

Noted Yale philosophy professor Ellsworth Throop once wrote:

“Human rights are like siblings on an Ozark farm. One begets the other, but none of them earns their keep.”

Read more gems like this in Throop’s magnum opus, “Rights are Wrong, Dammit!”, Yale Press, 1967.

For what it’s worth, Humeira.

I am brilliantly stupid :astonished:

see the post on absolute truth and math if u don’t believe me…lol.

The very fact that you pick and choose your comrades in a venue where people are supposed to share the same interest( ie philosophy) is an indirect indication of superiority or inferiority of one vis-a-vis another.
