Stupidity is a disease. www.fastborns.org
Stupidity is infectious. It spreads from one person to another, one home to another, one community to the other and one country to another. You can't live and work with stupid people and fail to be stupid. I am not trying to get rude or abuse anyone but this article's goal, is to find out the causes of stupidity and its symptoms. We may then find treatment for stupidity. It is always better to treat the causes of a certain disease instead of treating its symptoms. Medical students may give us a helping hand here.
Stupidity is behavior that shows lack of thought or good judgment. It is the state or quality of being slow to learn and not clever or intelligent. The stupidity patient is termed as a stupor: a state in which one is unable to think and hear clearly especially because one has drunk to much alcohol, taken drugs or gets a shock. Sometimes the word 'stupid' is used jokingly to say to someone that he or she is not thinking and acting intelligently.
What are causes of stupidity then? From my point of view stupidity is to a largest extent caused by ignorance. Ignorance may not be the cause of all diseases because even people with PhDs die of disease related causes but for stupidity, ignorance is the major cause of suffering from stupidity. Ignorance is again lack of knowledge or information about something. Ignorance is not only a symptom of stupidity but another disease as well. There are diseases that cause other diseases. Ignorance is among such diseases. For example AIDS causes other body diseases like diarrhea.
A person suffering from ignorance is known as an ignorant person. An ignorant person therefore, can easily be a stupid person. If you do not know about something, you cannot worry about it. Ignorance has a relationship with the word 'ignore' which means not paying attention to something. I am not saying having an ignoring attitude is being ignorant or stupid but when one ignores important and crucial issues in life he or she gives room to ignorance and stupidity.
We can prevent ourselves from stupidity by avoiding stupid people and stinking thinking. When one is surrounded by stupid people, he or she becomes stupid in the process. Stinking thinking is when we give a room for bad smelling thoughts in our minds. Bad smelling thoughts may include not thinking at all. When one stops to think, bad smelling thoughts get into the mind. Examples of bad smelling thoughts may include thoughts of defilement, adultery, theft, bribery, murder, witchcraft and other bad thoughts.
People suffering from stupidity, do not have time to think. They speak like a tailoring machine. They do not think before they speak. They act before they calculate. They spend without aim. Stupid people do not learn. They have no love and are not kind. The signs and symptoms of stupid people are infinitive. They can't be exhausted. Once you discover the symptoms of stupidity from a person near you, try to run away from the infected person. And if the infected person is a member of your family, friend, workmate or relative, help and find treatment.
Stupidity can be treated by taking the stupid person to the counseling clinic or praying for that stupid person. If your patient's conditions persist, seek medical treatment from a professional doctor. Stupidity is not a killer disease. It is a curable disease.
