Intelligent by Vote

  1. Jul 13, 2016 #1
    If people are who claim you're intelligent, then people need to be questioned (each and every one). They need to answer why you're intelligent, substantially.

    Intelligence is not a vote, intelligence is an adaptation of the mind.

    "What?" or a show of misconception is not substantial proof that one is intelligent or one has the intelligent view in a debate or discussion.

    Your statements are a bit garbled. What is the point of your post? Do you have a question?

    This is the general discussion board.

    'Something' was posted.

    You dismissed the whole of that 'something', and have produced an off-topic comment. It's your post that's garbled.

    I vote that the OP is not intelligent.

    Why is that?

    My mind has adapted to the world; I, personally, live quite fortunately.

    Because I voted so. You want to characterize intelligence by votes, so the very action of my vote means you're not intelligent. If you want a reason, then you admit it's not the vote that makes somebody intelligent.

    Cool. I'm happy for you.

    You misunderstood or didn't read the original post, or you're trolling me with a pseudo-sense of a greater intelligence.

    If your original post is so incredibly vague, then it's not our fault for not understanding you!! It's yours. My vote stands.

    Nope, just your understanding of it.

    Soon you will form a group of people who misunderstand and attempt to destroy the thread.

    Trust me, destroying this thread would be the merciful thing to do!
     
  12. Jul 13, 2016 #11
    Because?

    Because you've provided a non-argument, non-discussion and are reducing it all to your primitive self, your wants and emotions.

    That's the entire point isn't it? You want intelligence to be voted on. But the people who vote will be lesser minds such as me. Isn't that a problem?

    My mind has adapted to thinking your posts make no sense.
     
  15. Jul 13, 2016 #14
    No, your mind has not adapted.

    His mind can't adapt?

    Is being omniscient a part of having an adapted mind?
     
  18. Jul 13, 2016 #17
    No, it didn't adapt, he was just joking.

    No.

    He's joking when he said you made no sense, because I hardly think it was a joke... So how come he thinks it makes no sense?

    So you admit you're not omniscient?

    You guys make no sense.

    The intelligent thing to do is leave you alone and fix your mistakes from the outside.

    An old quote from me: "This wisdom will echo throughout the world, and the only force to stop it is your own."

    You are not wise, unfortunately.
