By page five they began to explore the definition of the terms in the original question. That is intelligent behavior, albeit belated.

As for the wisdom thing - it is said that "intelligence" is knowing that a tomato is a fruit and "wisdom" is knowing not to use tomatoes in a fruit salad.
In that vein, intelligence might compel us to want to comment on a thread like this, but wisdom would tell us not to bother.

This troll-bait thread has its moments though. People keep insisting on making thoughtful, serious comments. Is that an intelligent thing to do? For 10 extra points, why(not)?

That's common wisdom, tho.
As long as you do it intelligently you can still use tomatoes in fruit salads.

Looking down on this planet, you observe that all over the earth, smokestacks are pouring carbon dioxide and toxic chemicals into the air. So are the dominant beings who run on the roadways. But carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas. You notice that the amount of it in the atmosphere increases steadily - year after year. The same is true of methane and other greenhouse gases. If this keeps up, the temperature of the planet is going to increase. Spectroscopically, you discover another class of molecules being injected into the air, the chlorofluorocarbons. Not only are they greenhouse gases, but they are also devastatingly effective in destroying the protective ozone layer.

You look more closely at the center of the South American continent, at a vast rain forest. Every night you see thousands of fires. In the daytime, you find the region covered with smoke. Over the years, all over the planet, you find less and less forest and more and more scrub desert.

You look down on the large island of Madagascar. The rivers are colored brown, generating a vast stain in the surrounding ocean. This is topsoil being washed out to sea at a rate so high that in another few decades there will be none left. The same thing is happening, you note, at the mouths of rivers all over the planet.
But no topsoil means no agriculture. In another century, what will the earthlings eat? What will they breathe? How will they cope with a changing and more dangerous environment?

From your perspective, you can see that something has unmistakably gone wrong. The dominant organisms are simultaneously destroying their ozone layer and their forests, eroding their topsoil, and performing massive, uncontrolled experiments on their planet’s climate. Haven’t they noticed what’s happening? Are they oblivious to their fate? Are they unable to work together on behalf of the environment that sustains them all?

Perhaps, you think, it’s time to reassess the conjecture that there’s intelligent life on Earth.

I dunno, i think evolution is pretty clever in making man kill himself.

And who cares about the climate anyway? For sure only humans.

Isn't intelligence not what you do when you know but what you do when you don't?

Humans may pollute the environment, but at least we are aware of the consequences (even if some of us don't care). There are other species that are perfectly capable of destroying an environment or ecosystem, and they are completely ignorant of what they're doing. Many invasive species will destroy all other forms of life they come in contact with, even if it will lead to their deaths. I'd say that our awareness puts us ahead of most species in that aspect. Plus, while humans may destroy the environment, we also nurture it. No other species protects others from extinction.

People that think that we are of ANY danger to earth are hilarious, Earth may have summoned us for the sole purpose of creating plastic and greenhouse gas, could be that earth didn't know how to create it naturally so it summoned us and let us go through the whole process of evolution just so plastic would become a part of it. One thing for sure, Earth has been here billions of years before us and it will stay here billions of years after us.

When I give a peek to 4chans /pol or reddit, facebook, twitter, pretty much any big community and/or social network people seem to be so ignorant and willing to voice their ignorance whereas in communities such as Bitcointalk (and a couple others which I shall not name) people are able to put together logical arguments, have discussions and view the current events without the glasses with a thick layer of crappy propaganda on them?

Seems that you rarely stumble upon ignorant fools on here.

Most likely you have a Libertarian leaning, and tend to agree with many people in the Bitcoin community. People who think like you will always seem more intelligent, I find Paul Krugman to be a simpleton and a bigot, yet, he's very accomplished academically and has a Nobel prize in economics, so not everyone agrees with me.

That was a Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, not actually a Nobel Prize. They don't have one of those for economic. Very minute difference though.

Isn't putting people down typical of people who are not intelligent?

There is no more a causal or statistical connection between IQ and politeness than between human activity and climate change.

Only a fool would entertain either obviously stupid notion.

Only a blithering idiot would think whining about "putting people down" is an effective deflection from the truth about volcanos' massive output of CO2 and toxic chemicals.

Can't rebut the message?  Attack the messenger by implying they "are not intelligent" because they insulted someone you agree with!  Works every time, unless you happen to get called out and mocked for it....  Grin

People that think that we are of ANY danger to earth are hilarious, Earth may have summoned us for the sole purpose of creating plastic and greenhouse gas, could be that earth didn't know how to create it naturally so it summoned us and let us go through the whole process of evolution just so plastic would become a part of it. One thing for sure, Earth has been here billions of years before us and it will stay here billions of years after us.
