  • You don't find answers through knowldge, you find knowledge through answers. You find answers through wisdom.

  • I was just thinking today that any standard high school science textbook has the accumulated knowledge of a thousand years of rigorous scientific research. Millions of people throughout history from all corners of the world dedicating their entire lives into unravelling the unfathomable mysteries of the world around them, and it's all summed up into something you can buy for a few quid. If you went back in time with that (supposedly) insignificant little book, people would wage wars over it.

  • Knowledge is not power. Power is power. They are 2 different things.
    Power resides where men believe it resides. It's a trick. A shadow on the wall.
    Knowledge help to make people believe that you have power.

  • Idk I think this post is too generalized. It depends on the objective whether or not knowledge is powerful. If you wanna invent some new fangled thing then it's very important. But in my two endeavors of choice, lifting weights and getting laid, knowledge barely does me shit. Some things take a dash of common sense and the rest is effort, personality development, intuition and reading emotion. So for some goals, knowledge is rather overrated.

  • Nah knowledge is not really knowledge. Most times it’s believe. The ability to think critically and creativity play an important role

    • Knowledge ≠ beliefs.
      Beliefs are something you think from informations or out of the blue. Knowledge is based on experience.

      Believing that god exist = belief.
      Believing that if you put your hand on a 350°C metal rod you'll get burned = knowledge.

      • Im the end u can’t prove what u think u know;) it’s often a thing that we say we know stuff and it’s not true in the end
        A religious person thinks knows god exists. I think I know that we evolved from apes. I’ve not seen it’s with my own eyes, though it sounds more logical and we apparently have proof. But reality itself could be all made up, especially history
        In science just how often has it happened they found something new and said this is it like
        Most times the knowledge we praise as knowledge is nothing more than believe

    • That takes knowledge to make though. A great deal of it.

      • the knowledge is easily accessible

        the fissile materials not so much

          • plans are readily available online

            tom clancys book sum of all fears had a great microsecond by microsecond description of how a nuclear bomb detonates

            yall compress a blocka fissile metal with explosives and shoot neutrons at it

            its not really a bomb its just a device to make 50 poundsa metal hotter than the sun and what happens after mimics a big explosive due to the effects doin that shit has what with atmosphere and such

            • Plans may be available, but you still need to have formal education on whatever it is you are building.
              So it's a combination of knowledge, skill and resources.

              Even if you know how a nuclear bomb works and find schematics on one, you can't build one in your garage. Even if someone gives you radioactive materials, a shell and a bunch of bomb parts, you still can't build one! You need an entire lab, special equipment and a bunch of people to handle details.

              I know how a turbocharger works (pretty simple lump of metal that is spun by exhaust gas and funnels more air into the engine) and I can probably find exact dimensions and blueprints online fairly easily, but I can't build one cause I need to cast the metal and then use a machine to carve out the turbo. Then I need to balance it.

              All in all, I need a dedicated facility for making turbochargers to make a turbocharger. So many hurdles before you can build (what's basically) a glorified high-speed fan.

              Anything more complicated than basic stuff (woodworking, basic metallurgy, knitting, leatherworking and such) requires education, tools, resources and formal skill.
