Stupidity is the reason I have few dinner guests. If you cant hold a conversation or back up a fact you know with evidence and simply state its true its true over and over then you are stupid.<br />
I dont mind uneducated people I do mind educated ones who turn out to be stupid.

Thank you for a good answer. I believe stupidity is a choice, maybe not consciously though.

Yes, I too have a gripe with mindless statements backed with no evidence. There is a problem with people regurgitating "facts" they've picked up - whether from word-of-mouth or general Internet browsing. By no means should they stop learning, but they ought to check their sources and delve a tad deeper in to the subject before reiterating it with no justifiable explanation to offer. An example of this is the recent "gluten-free is healthier" trend. Plenty of people follow this nutritional fad, but when I ask them WHY gluten-free is healthy - they cannot offer any reason at all. They are changing their daily eating habits, and offering nutritional advice because of a popular trend of which they are not actually informed on. This is why advertising is as powerful as it is - they know that if they repeat something over and over, prospective consumers will automatically internalize and believe it.

Stupidity is religion.

Best Answer

Sorry I disagree religion is a well structured Business controlling people getting them to pay money to a nonexistent god. It is not religion which is stupid it is the people who follow religion when not a single piece of evidence exists to verify the claims by these organizations that the gods exist.

Ok faith is stupidity.

Best Answer

Sorry disagree faith is a necessity, where religion isn't.

Best Answer

Faith is obviously not a necessity as so many of us don't require it at all and still live great lives.

Best Answer

And all faith is is the act of believing in something without evidence. That is my definition of stupid.

Likely both. But I would describe it as a by-product as opposed to a general "force."
