The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
Being knowledgable is not being intelligent, neither is being wise. I think intelligence stems from learning. Remember that kid in math class who always understood new concepts as they were being taught, before anybody else? That kid was intelligent. The kid who knew everything that had already been taught was just a hard-worker and was good at studying and memorizing; however, it is intelligent to work hard and study, but the real deciding factor on the child's intelligince would be the speed at which he picks up new concepts.
So perhaps intelligence is equal to the speed of comprehension? Like...seeing the big picture
Fuck, I don't know. I'm talking myself into the corner here lol
In the same vein:
You have somebody who teaches himself to play piano overnight, and somebody who took piano lessons for years. At the end, these two people have the exact same piano skills, but are they both intelligent, or is the kid who learned overnight more intelligent?
I JUST MADE A BREAKTHROUGH!
While I was typing my last post, my friend and I had a fucked up conversation on MSN that went like this:
did you fart? i smell vaseline
are you sure your anus just isn't too loose to tell? probably sounds like an exhale when you fart
i just felt my anus
its very tight
like....seven year old girl tight?
6 year old girl
man you must have to shit every 23 minutes to ensure minimal anus-damage
yeah but then i get to read alot
and therefore im smart
so...intelligence is a product of a tight anus.
interesting...i guess i'm making my girlfriend unintelligent then
i am tempted to include sports in the equation.
they say sports is 10% physical 90% mental.
MJ was a basketball genius. So was Rodman, dennis rodman might have been the smartest player in NBA history.
look at it like this.
the stock section of the newspaper is data.
an investor analyzes the data, and in combination with experience, gains knowledge
wisdom is applying that knowledge to make profitable trades
but someone who can memorize the s&p 500 daily numbers is not intelligent. unless he can predict trends based on that info.

So Data --> Knowledge --> Wisdom --> Intelligence
So somebody who studies and memorizes things is knowledgable. Somebody who uses this knowledge to their advantage is wise, and somebody who makes their own deductions and theories using this wisdom is intelligent?
knowledge is what you intake from everything - wisdom is gained by getting experienced using your knowledge -
understanding is being able to stand after your experiences
I know we've already denounced the IQ Test, but I found this funny.
In my psychology class, our prof showed us some famous IQs.
George W Bush - 91
Koko the Trained Gorilla - 90
being able to be understood
