The operative word here is "learning". The more you learn about anything (including religion), the less ignorant you are. But we also need to make the distinction between "learning-equals-knowing" and "learning-equals-understanding"! 


I completely agree, there is a very fine line between knowing and understanding. Its not enough to just know your stuff, you have to learn to apply it to concepts you already know.



so which counts as non ignorance? knowing or understanding?


Well, understanding would the be ultimate "non-ignorance". But I think achieving a state of "non-ignorance" involves two steps. Just because you know something doesn't necessarily mean you understand it. Knowing is the first step, and to understand, you have to jump to the second step.

I can read something from a book and "know" it, but I might not necessarily understand it.

Editing to say your sig is stupid --- I AM right. Tongue

Second edit -- I totally screwed this response.

Can we really say we know something if we don't understand it?? Ermm I'm not sure!

LOL, you sure it's not the other way around? When people learn about religions, their thought process might get influenced towards what best fits a particular religion(s). They tend to favor religion over the norms and customs of society, and get blinded by the religion probably.

<div></div>Well ego operates everywhere , in religion, politics and in everything thing. We may not need religion but we do need philosophy at least to understand several things that science is ignorant about.
Philosophy, yes. Religion, no. You see, philosophy is based on a fixed set of beliefs that can be proven by a set of observations. Religion is completely bogus, with no evidence to back it up, it is just how some ignorant people try to influence people to think like them through commercial means. I'm sorry, but for me, religion has now become more of a business than based on faith(no matter how incoherent the faith may be)
