#NaBloPoMo December 2013 Prompt for Friday, December 13, 2013
George Bernard Shaw said, "Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance." Do you agree or disagree?
I would have to agree. Some people are so adamant about things they believe to be true even when they are wrong that no amount of truth can sway them. Conspiracy theorists definitely come to mind with the danger of false knowledge vs. ignorance. An ignorant person can be taught the truth, but someone who believes a false truth has already "learned it" and embedded it into the brain. Once it's embedded into the brain, it seems harder to remove.
This prompt reminds me of the question "What's the difference between someone who is stupid and someone who is ignorant?" The answer of course is "Stupidity can't be fixed!"
