False Knowledge vs. Ignorance: NaBloPoMo


George Bernard Shaw said, “Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.” Do you agree or disagree?

Tricky prompt. It could be more dangerous to think you know the answers, when in reality all of your information is wrong. For example, if you live your whole life believing that Bigfoot is not real, you won’t be as likely to question that he is real. Sometimes believing in something gives us the excuse to not question the truth. So we become like sheep following shepherds, who either lie or don’t know the truth themselves. What is the shepherd is dumb and gets the whole herd lost? In the end, the sheep will look just as dumb and lost as the shepherd.
With ignorance, we don’t know anything about Bigfoot. However, we might be more open to believing he exists. The possibility that we will ask questions might be higher than with having false knowledge.
So ask questions and look for the truth. How are you going to know the answers if you keep following a lost shepherd? Don’t be a sheep.
