WordNet Search 3.0 says:
Ignorance, the lack of knowledge or education.
Ignorance is where someone or something is uninformed. This should not be confused with being unintelligent, as one’s level of intelligence and level of education or general awareness are not the same.
These are just dictionary definitions of the word “ignorance”. However, if you want to see the real thing in action, come to any country located in the Eastern part of the world; or rather, any country with a muslim majority.
This is quite confusing for me. I admit, even though I’m not a practicing muslim at all, and I have quite a lot of doubts about religion in general, I still know the religion well enough. Seven years of attending sunday school has taught me quite a lot about the religion, and I have to say that I’m not unimpressed.
The bombings, the killings, the ignorance.. These were not originally meant to be part of the religion of Islam. Or were they? I’ll be honest. Its hard to write something positive about this matter, these people, this religion. Having been exposed too all this over here, my doubts have been confirmed.
I’ll just leave you with this: If you were raised in a western country, the east is not a place for you to stay.
