Absolutely agree. Hubby has long argued that a College or University Degree should not be (never should have been) a requirement for everyone; and I think that would go along with this.

After all. If it wasn't true, where would most of us (in the world) be right now? How would we know what was safe to eat, etc.?

I do wonder though, how is it the hard life early in the Bible let people live lives of more than 500 years as a norm, and we now celebrate when someone lives to 100... (sorry for the side track).

Placing too high a value on education alone leads to a sort of intellectual snobbery and missing out on perfectly good individuals who can do the job, even if they do not have the education credits.

And, to be fair, education is no guarantee of wisdom.

Absolutely agree there.
