Thornton P. Knowles On The Destructive Power Of Knowledge

Perhaps we overvalue knowledge and great intelligence. It was, after all, the smart boys who drastically shortened the history of life on this planet by producing the atomic bomb. How intelligent was that? Knowledge is not only power, it's vanity, and it can be dangerous. Advanced intelligence and knowledge does not necessarily come with morality or wisdom. It can, and has, been put to terrible use. Humans have outsmarted themselves into oblivion.
