I’ve said this before, especially in my section on Institutions:

Human society is too dishonest to be intelligent.
Human society is too stupid to be honest.

I’ve ratified the assertion numerous times since first posting it. Now though, here’s what I don’t know, don’t understand, wish I could:

Is it human society which is too dishonest to be intelligent? (& too stupid to be honest?)

Or is it the human species which is which is too dishonest to be intelligent? (& too stupid to be honest?)

Could it possibly be (as Darwin suspected) that any evolved species would be too dishonest to be intelligent? (& too stupid to be honest)?

I was raised to believe that God would answer such questions at Judgment. Now I suspect that God is just another evolved entity: too dishonest to be intelligent (& too stupid to be honest).

I know one thing: God, if intelligent, or honest, will have to be some God for the Jews or the Nazis or the Americans to let him speak.

I’m grateful to WordPress.com for letting me republish the federally censored Knatz.com, one post at a time: But: I just added some “tags”: when I tried to add “Judgment” with a capital J, to reference Christian theology, the WordPress robots kept “correcting” my entry to lower case! Twice! So I give up: on that detail.

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
