Ignorance ˈɪɡn(ə)r(ə)ns/
A lack of knowledge or information.

Sometimes as I'm talking with people, I find their ability to ignore facts incredible. Once they have their opinion, they seem to build a form of mental wall around it, blocking any opposition by either claiming the argument is completely false where possible, or by trying to oppose the argument with what they believe to be a valid counter argument (Ironically with no proof of their claim, except they don't seem to see the irony when their claim is also called completely false). Through this analogy, It's often easy to spot a lack of intelligence. 

As I was talking with people of this type recently, I began to notice certain continuous behaviours. First, they seemed to put themselves on a form of pedestal, where what they believed appeared  as obvious fact, even though it was clearly simply an opinion (And a highly misguided one at that). Second, using this view, they seem to talk down to anyone who voices any opinion that contradicts theirs. It's almost as if you had tried to explain that the sky is not blue, or that glass is not transparent, rather than disagree with a debatable fact on which they are on the losing side. 

It has become clear in recent years that the intelligent are beginning to find a voice, and from here I can only expect for the ignorant to drown while refusing to swim in the ideas that would save them. I plan to help the correct side as much as possible, and watch the others continue laughing while they fail from their own incompetence. Over and Out,
