Lance Mannion got the same idea at about the same time, and wrote a great post about it.
Now we've got one Naman Crowe, in the op-ed pages of the Chattanoogan, with a stemwinder of a rant on the topic. I don't know who he is, but I'd like to buy him a beer, wind him up and watch him go.
We are born much more stupid than intelligent. And we are born into a world that is much more stupid than intelligent. Our environment - from our family and playmates, to our churches and schools, the things we read and the things we see and hear on our TVs, to the workplace, the marketplace and all other places where people congregate and socialize – is like a sea of stupidity soaking into our brains without letup, leaving minds by the countless millions as dead as drowned rats way before the individuals are literally and physically dead.Although Frank Zappa said it more pithily:
Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.
