Why are people so ignorant?

seems like everybody is so ignorant, WHY?

Report as

Lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.
Lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular:
Since that is the definition of ignorant.....then maybe it has something to do with the lack of discipline these days multiplied by the lack of parenting coupled with an all out lack of morals in general.............sounds like a good Jersey Shore summary.....

Well, because they were taught wrong, and when one tries to correct them, they still believe they are right.

because they are lost!

everything we eat and drink is spiked with neurotoxins!

Margarine, bread, water, milk.

unless you eat 100% organic from farm or you are aware of what is going on.

Soy lecithin is in almost all processed food products. Cant escape it.
Asparthame, nutrasweet,splenda and other Sugar free drinks as well as chocolate.

chocolate bars does no longer contain real chocolate, its a simulated taste, talking about Anything from Cadbury, Nestl? and hersey.

People seem to use the word "ignorant" as a synonym for stupid these days. Ignorance simply means a lack of understanding of something. The problem isn't when someone is ignorant, it's when they refuse to open up their mind and educate themselves. I don't mind if someone is ignorant of something, so long as they're willing and open to admit they might be wrong about something, or they're willing to be corrected if they're wrong. we all are ignorant in some way. It's when apathy and ignorance are mixed together, there is a serious problem.

Well because what parents teach their children young that's what they'll be. If a parent is mean nasty to the kid a kid grows and thinks that's how you deal in life and that's wrong. People don't think what their doing its all ignorance!!! A person needs support of parents to be able to live a normal life . What do you expect of kids who were never raised properly?

Well I think people are ignorant mostly but I think everyone's just kinda bias. If people don't agree with their opinion most of the time people call each other ignorant. So I would say people are ignorant mostly just because people don't agree with their opinion.

I so agree! I think "ignorant" is probably one of the miss used words out there. It's either "you're stupid", or, "you don't agree with me".
