Am I dumb or smart?
Well in arguments over this topic people seem to ignore certain points a bring up. I would think the same would happen to other people also, but I kind of want to stick to my own experiences here.
Now I would think if I make a weak point it could easy be knocked down, so they probably would do that just to get it out of the way. Then if I make a strong point wouldn't that point be something to address as well? I have little to no formal education on these matters. So I'm pretty sure I'm not make rock solid arguments here, however the fact still remains. The fact being points are being over looked or ignored.
So is that they don't want to bother with the fool or is it that I really do have something a point? I am really torn here because I hate the idea of being a dumb ass, but hate the idea of being arrogant more.
On the other hand is my acknowledgment of my own ignorance making me intelligent? I know that touches on Socrates’ idea of true wisdom, but he did get killed for it. (uh that is some I learned this week)
I would still think either way there response is from one of two extremes on my part, if it isn't them not wanting to hear what I have to say or something about my age or education anyway. However in a lot of cases they respond to others (hearing out arguments) and/or don't know about my age or education.
This may have been a ramble and contained many spelling and/or grammar errors, I don't really care...
