Swallowing the BS Hook, Line, and Sinker
From any Number of Crooked Lying Stinkers
Many people are in awe of those with degrees. You know, that glorious trail of letters after a person's name, or just preceding it. A lot of people think an education - especially a "good" one - makes the person more intelligent.
That is a fallacy.
An education gives a person knowledge and the greater the education, the greater the wealth of knowledge that person has, barring injury to the brain or disabilities brought on by Alzheimer's and the like.
This knowledge comes from the acquisition of data. In no way should it be confused with intelligence. There are a great number of people who can study computer programming for years and become quite fluent in writing code, debugging scripts, and troubleshooting systems.
Very few of these people are talented enough to create groundbreaking new software. That is something that goes beyond data... it requires intelligence.
Intelligence, unlike data, cannot be absorbed into the brain by study. Intelligence comes from experience, the action of trying and failing repeatedly, and learning from these events.
We see many people around us who keep trying the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. They have not learned. Nor are they gaining intelligence.
The defenders of the Warren Commission have sung the same tune for fifty years, never varying the tune, the lyric, nor even attempting any harmony.
No learning has occurred. They are stuck in their beliefs and believe them so firmly that no amount of argument can shake that faith.
We see this quite often during discussions of religion as well and a dogmatic belief-system it is to those people.
We also see this in the presentations at JFK forums by supposed "conspiracy theorists". Some latch onto one version of the explanation of the evidence and are incapable of adjusting or changing that deeply religious belief regardless of the evidence uncovered or discovered in the case that might cause an intelligent person to drop that one tenet of their beliefs and assimilate a new understanding.
By refusing to advance or revise our thinking on the case as new developments are made is to play into the hands of the deceivers who would wish the "discussion" would go on for eternity rather than moving the case forward.
Intelligent people can see through the BS. For some it might take a bit longer than others but the intelligent ones are constantly altering their worldview as new information is made available.
The point when the evolving of the case should cease is when the case has been completely resolved.
Anyone who tells you we are already to that stage is casting a line of BS.
