Gadawg stopped learning shortly after potty training. As far as I can see, he not willing or possibly capable of learning. So my question is this..why do some people just stop learning? Do they think they already know all there is to know? When they are exposed as idiots, they seem to not understand it, and not accept it. Now I don't know about you, but when someone proves me wrong (it has happened. I know, hard to believe, but nobody, not even me, can maintain such high function 24/7..and everybody has gaps in their knowledge), I LEARN from that. Not only that, but if someone corrects me, and the correction is legit (I find out because I LOOK IT UP) I don't then make more of a idiot of myself by continuing to use my faulty argument as if it has some worth. If I did that, why on earth would anyone take anything I say seriously? And why would I want to advocate for a point that has either been disproved, or just makes me look stupid? So why do people do that? Are they just stupid? Are they incapable of learning? Or do they think the fact that the stupidity is emanating from THEM makes it worthwhile in and of itself, despite the fact that it's not true? "I know I'm talking bullshit, but because it's MY bullshit, it doesn't matter that it's untrue as I've been shown a thousand times. My own spectacular self will blind everyone to reality...I AM A GOD". This is a phenomenon I see over and over when dealing with progressives (and incidentally, Christian haters). They think they are so incredible that they can't be bothered with facts, with truth, or with knowledge, period. They know they're right because they are, after all, themselves. They believe their dumb assertions are infused with some sort of fairy dust, generated by their own specialness. And because they believe that, they refuse to move forward in their knowledge and understanding. They wallow in ignorance, and they call it enlightenment. It freaks me out.
