  • I agree...definition of ignorance is the lack of intelligence. How can you reject/disagree with somethng if you don't have all of the information.

  • Disagree. I don't have to taste poison to know that its bad for me. I can take others opinions on it.

  • agree--thats why its important to learn as much as you can about something before you say its wrong, evil, or just something you dont believe in.

  • I agree. Although different people will argue that you don't TRULY know about the thing you personally disagree with or reject. When in actuality, you may very well know plenty about it. It's just that some people don't like it when you disagree with them.

  • Agree...How can you reject it if you know nothing about it. The definition of ignorance is lack of knowledge or the state of being uninformed.

  • Agree.

  • Oh, I completely agree. How can you even know whether you agree with something if you haven't taken the time to even know what it presents/claims, or if you haven't taken the time to understand it? That's just willful ignorance, and is, IMO, the "highest"/worst kind of ignorance there is, because with all of the information available its almost inexcusable.
