Not necessarily.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/9/04 - 11:30:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
exactly, what if you learn how to be a safe-cracker for example, how is that good?
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/9/04 - 11:48:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
not at all
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/9/04 - 11:50:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, not all learning is good.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 6/30/04 - 7:29:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
no of course not
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 6/30/04 - 7:36:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, all learning is good!

Please teach me the most effective way to torture somebody to their death!

No. That's so stupid.
It's VERY easy to learn bad things.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/6/04 - 2:48:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I've learned plenty of things that I didn't really want to know.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/6/04 - 2:51:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
All knowledge is good. Just because you learn something like safe cracking doesn't mean you will turn into a criminal. What if you are a safe maker? If you know how to crack them you can make them crack proof.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/6/04 - 5:28:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with Wolph. All knowledge is good, sometimes people just choose to do ungood things with the knowledge.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/13/04 - 2:57:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
all knowledge is good...all learning is good. its the application of knowledge that can be questionable.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/13/04 - 3:07:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes... it's better to know than not know.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/13/04 - 3:10:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, sometimes one can only learn one's lesson by making mistakes.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/10/04 - 7:21:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. Even if it's a hard lesson learned. You still learned from the experience.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 10/7/04 - 3:03:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
hocky guy says it pretty well
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 10/7/04 - 3:04:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
yeah i agree anything you learn no matter what can still make you a better person
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 10/27/04 - 3:16:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Not all learning is the accumulation of knowledge. You learn behaviors as well and they don't have to be good or positive. Many people learn racism from their family/parents as children. How does that make you a better person?
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 10/27/04 - 3:20:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I learned, once again, that going to the bar without eating dinner is a bad plan. While I enjoyed the lesson last night, I'm not so sure this morning. . . ugh.. is it afternoon already? yeah.

I think we have a missunderstanding here. Some people are refering to knowledge as all exeperiences. Some people are refering to knowledge as behaviors and information. Some persons are refering to it just information. It would be beneficial if everyone specified what they consider knowledge to be.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/8/04 - 5:38:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
People are using "knowledge" and "experience" interchangeably for "learning," and neither is a perfect fit. I guess you could define "learning" as "the acquisition of knowledge," but many people would also suggest that such acquisition cannot occur in a vaccuum, that it inherently includes some amount of experience.

If it were possible to learn without experience, it would not in and of itself be a bad thing, but I don't believe that's possible. I must therefore say that not all learning is good, as the pursuit of it can compromise that which is good and the experience of it is clearly not always good.

Wish I could unlearn some things.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/9/05 - 2:33:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
when a father beats his wife in front of their son, the boy is learning how to beat women. that is so NOT a good thing.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/9/05 - 2:36:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure. The more you know, the better. Its HOW you use your knowledge that can be bad.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 4:22:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
no.

in Nazi Germany, young kids were 'taught' that jews were evil. i do not believe that that is a good thing.

17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 4:23:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.
I havelearned things about my family that I would have rather not known.
