Interesting read. Most of the article wrongly calls ignorance stupidity. The difference is ignorance is highly treatable, while intelligence or lack of it (stupidity) is highly heritable.

I disagree with only one small aspect: posting a blind link with a click-bait title usually repels many potential readers.
If the essay is good, why make a disservice to it by dressing it (ostensibly) like how almost every spam message looks like?

FTFY. (the thread title)

Indeed. Well worth the time for perspiring minds.

I'm not sure if this was written by an English Major who enjoys Physics. Or the other way around. But a body of language worth parsing and then modeling.

Since stating the latter is often ignorantly seen as vaguely racist or at least elitist, there's a tendency to disregard the existence of stupidity.
