The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.” – Anonymous

I like what one writer had to say on this subject: “The most marked difference between stupidity and genius is that -usually- the stuff coming from a genius makes sense -if you can understand it. The stupid stuff does NOT make sense. It is, well, stupid. You see it, read or hear it and you know instantly without a doubt: GARBAGE. Admittedly, it’s not always THAT obvious. Sometimes it takes more than just an attentive mind of at least average intelligence. Sometimes it takes a person that is well versed with the subject concerned, perhaps even highly competent to judge appropriately if something is truly brilliant (i.e. has the touch of genius) or is just elegantly formulated nonsense that sounds very clever but is effectively complete rubbish.1

Albert Einstein and other geniuses down through time only took us so far with their brilliance. Then it took another generation to build on the knowledge those geniuses left to the world and built on it. But when it comes to being ignorant because there is no willingness to learn or change one’s mind even when indisputable facts are presented, the path of stupidity lies unlimited before those who blindly follow it. Proof of this is the fact that no matter how many times they make the same mistakes, they repeat them over and over again. – Dr. Robert R Seyda
