Summary: God does no want us to live our lives in ignorance-ignorance is not bliss!

  Study Tools

Knowledge is power, and ignorance is not bliss! The Greek word for ignorant is "agnosis" which means without knowledge. Another similar word is "idiotes" or our English, idiot. A common concept from classrooms of the past is the dunce hat and dunce seat. The practice began in the 13th century by philosopher John Duns Scotus of Duns, Scotland. He used it as a method of helping slow or lazy students learn. He believed that the triangle, or apex created a funnel to the mind. This of course fell out of academic circles and became laughable. Teachers used to place a dunce hat on the heads of misbehaving students and place them in a dunce seat for punishment. This has also fell out of use. Many people may actually have spiritual dunce hats on their heads because of their apparent ignorance of certain things that we must always know about.
