Why do people work so hard to contradict the notion that building is a profound act? Is it really necessary to compromise a thoughtful discussion with trivial misconceptions. Either people are affraid to admit that they don't understand something, or we are a society of people truly incapable of reason.http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=15164175This poster doesn't mean any harm, but the post demonstrates a remarkably dense inability to comprehend an argument. It is, sadly, just represetative of the level of thinking that most of the board shares, and is more evidence of the growing anti-intellectualism that dominates contemporary discourse. No one is able to think beyond their own experience and their own little version of the world. As a result we are all diminished. Worse, no one will admit that they don't understand. Instead, they just choose to ignore thought or attempt to refute it with silly, simplistic notions. What they don't realize is how much richer their lives would be if they stopped comparing humanity to coral. News flash: we're better than coral.Usually.bjd
