I am an ignoramus and proud of it. I think it is the highest state of being.
The word ignoramus in Latin means – ‘I do not know’.
Not knowing something is the greatest thing possible as long as it is coupled to the thirst to find out. I have a great thirst to find out.
Back in the Dark Ages there was no great thirst to find out anything. The scriptures had all the answers. They thought that anything you wanted to know was contained in the scriptures. They were ignoramuses without any thirst to find out.
The enlightenment changed that. We developed the thirst.
The Europeans set out on voyages of great discovery. Their aim was to find what they didn’t know and fill in the gaps. We’re still doing that today!
Thank heavens for ignorance!!
