Thanks for the reminder! One of my great lessons is I don't need to prove anything when I trust what I know. ie never argue with a fool because I then am worse off than the fool; and precious time is lost.
what is the standard definition of 'stupid'? and what is the popular or more personal one? no one will truly accept that they are stupid and to accept that one is more intelligent/wise than the average person is presumptious and maybe even stupid at times...argue when it's worth something and there is no other recourse?!
Um, no. Not arguing with stupid people is how things like religion are running the world and denying things like science and logic. Not arguing with the devout about evolution for so long is why we have to argue so much harder to counteract their ignorance now.
+Dustin Jones It's totally not worth arguing with blockheads, be it now or later on. Best thing to do is just prove yourself through your actions. Action does speak louder than words, especially when you deal with stupid people.
You might want to get the author of the quote right. Mark Twain actually said "Never argue with a fool; onlookers may not be able to tell the difference." The quote in the picture was actually said by stand-up comic, Greg King.
The point I was trying to make is that people don't research anything they post anymore. It might not be important on this small example but this is exactly how misinformation is spread. Blind faith is not always a good thing.
So very true!! There are lots of stupid people in this world and I firmly believe that I have encountered most of them!! After all these years, I developed a philosophy that I'm too old to put up with stupid BS!!
If you reply and retaliate back to trolls on the Internet, you are just as stupid as they are. Always ignore trolls, they are only trying to bring people down. It is worthless to reply to these people as it only fuels their excitement.
I'd say this only applies to you if you get into arguments in order to win them. However, I doubt any smart person really gets into arguments and has a tally sheet where he records wins and losses. There are far better reasons why we get sucked into these things. Pissing off stupid people can be highly enjoyable. You also force yourself into a situation where you have to stay calm and not have a heart attack over something that is meaningless, which can be like a mental or emotional exercise. Maybe the stupid person will get into the same argument with many other people and begin to do research and question their beliefs. Whether or not they drag you down to their level is the result of how you go about arguing with them.
