To avoid a misunderstanding.

I said I hate ignorance,without an explanation.What I'm trying to say there,is the kind of ignorance where people believe they know everything,and they actually know next to nothing on the subject they are arguing.We are all ignorant in some way or other.None of us can possibly know everything about everything.But some act like they do.They are the ones I admit to being prejudiced against.

True and even the stuff we think we know may turn out to be wrong. Helps to be a little humble. What we do not know about the universe is much larger than what we do know.

In my mind, there are two separate definitions of ignorance: 1) a lack of knowledge about any given subject and 2) a lack of tolerance for any view other than one's own. I believe the 2nd definition is the one of which you speak. I, too, have encountered more than my share of that of late. That kind of ignorance cannot be overcome because that kind of mindset will not be moved to listen. Is it frustrating? Of course it is. Is it worth the time to try? Generally it's not. Too bad, because that kind of person will never be happy since they'll spend a large part of their waking hours looking for a fight about anything and nothing.

If you are strong and push through the pain and the fear, you often find that happiness is waiting for you on the other side.

I, too, have had my share of intolerance and most of that based on ignorance.

I am one who will speak my mind, no innuendi, not veiled refereences to an unnamed person. If i have something to say , I will do it and name the person i am referring to. I do this in a respectful away however. I don't believe in namecalling or slanderous accusations that are baseless to begin with.

Everyone has an opinion and is entitled to it. But we are adults and should conduct ourselves accordingly
