I’m probably starting to sound like a philosopher with all my idea, but I need a place to say them, where people might actually listen to them. On my last post I got a comment from abcd77 talking about a page in the bible that states about how the world will end. Here is his comment (Click on it for full size)
I belive his comment is very reasonable, and maby we could learn from it. In response a few hours later a good friend of mine named Zipo left a comment. (Click For Full Size.)
At the end he commented on how we should leave the part with the bible to scholars. This post is not about what the page in the bible, but more about the part where he said we should leave it to the scholars. Now I don’t want this to turn into an argument, I’m just stating my ideas. Once I heard a story from my old Science teacher. She was one of the best teachers in the world. The story went like this, one day a truck was briskly driving down the road to a place it needed to go. It was slipping under the bridge when it got stuck. It couldn’t get out. Many mathimiticans, scholars, and engineers worked on the problem to try and get the truck out without touching the bridge. None of them ever found the answer until one day a five year old gave them the answer. He simply they suggested that they let some air out of the tires to make it shorter so it wasn’t stuck. The plan worked and he was rewarded for such a great idea.
My point is that maby that’s the problem with the world, is possibly we don’t look at thing simply enough. Sure all those scholars and engineers and stuff are smart, and that can get you a long ways in certain things, but not every time. For example I’m a seventh grader who is in a ninth grade math class. I was trying to solve a problem, that just stumped me. My dad and mom both took a shot at it and couldn’t figure it out. That’s when my seven year old brother gave us the answer. There were three problems in an equation to figure out the perimiter of a triangle. My brother showed us that the first two problems gave us the plugins for the third problem, therefore giving us the answer. My dad were trying to solve these crazy equations in the most complicated ways, and didn’t see that. My point is maby we are looking at the world in a too complicated way and need to see the simple things. Sure maby it’s complicated to make something as crazy as the iPhone. Still I bet if you ask anyone they will tell you a story similar to mine where the answer to their problem is very simple.
