Sloth is the hardest one to define, but ignorance has elements of sloth involved.

Ignorant people are too lazy to use their brain to think about an issue they have already made their minds up about. More than that it takes too much energy to challenge already formed beliefs, it is laziness and complacency that keeps an ignorant person from taking the time or effort to explore an issue. It is something else to be content with an opinion formed on faulty premises and rhetoric.

When a well informed person is arguing with another person who is completely ignorant about the topic at hand, and the ignorant one says that this is lies, how does the ignorant person know they are lies if they don't know anything about it? Listening to Hannity talking about his opinion is not the same thing as reading or hearing something directly so as to form a better informed opinion.

If you are discussing something like the Mueller report with someone who has either read it, or read sections that cover the things he is talking about, and your only information comes from Hannity's take on a four page report that has been called purely wrong by everyone but the right...you have no business arguing with someone who has read it, let alone calling them or the report lies. Is it that damn hard to read things for yourself? The actual issue is that it would force you to think about and reassess your beliefs, because you don't have opinions, you have formed beliefs.

The bible should have called the laziness and sloth of ignorance a sin, but you know why it wasn't? The church needs people to believe what they are told without questioning it. Blind faith works better with unquestioned beliefs. And that's fine, whatever works for you, but don't bring unadulterated ignorance to a political debate, because next thing we know we will be in a civil war with ignorant frigging people.

Fortunately ignorant people who are a minority when they get butt hurt about Trump being impeached or losing the election and decide to revolt. A minority is a minority any way you look at it, and a revolt has that minority on the wrong side of the law.

There is no "the bible", and "biblical you" is a particular book, now there is only one "the book" and that stays in heaven can't be loaned except by a Prophet, I know every word in it, about which you might very well ask, I can only say it isn't about people on earth, and that can only mean the eternal book is 👽.

Well, ! Calvin said it could be about predestined people on earth but I can tell you for sure that it didn't go exactly to plan, what wrong in creation was satan not ignorance, Satan can not be assused of being ignorant, except for the time when he was fooled by God but you don't have to be ignorant to be fooled by God, just look at Donald Trump he's certainly not ignorance otherwise how did he comes by all that money, maybe just disregard that question.

Anyhow as I was saying the eternal book that stays in Heaven was written before people were created otherwise who the heck would have created them?.

Now about Muller, we find ourselves in an advantageous situation lookin back not forward as did the "the book", Muller certainly didn't accomplish much except for the impeachment witch hunt, what is the difference between a Witch and an Alien ?.

As you can see from my graphics a Witch has a pointed hat and an Alien has a pointed chin, what do the Democrats prefer to go after Trump an Alien or a Witch, obviously a Witch because they sent Hillary.

You are a living example of the ignorance I am talking about. You have not read the Mueller report, in fact you haven't even absorbed even little pieces of highlights that spell out prosecutable obstruction if not for an untested DOJ memo that says a sitting president can't be prosecuted. Mueller left it to congress to decide what to call out the obstruction evidence, not Barr. Barr decided what he would call it, and kept the whole rest of the report away from congress for weeks, actually they still don't have it.

Barr interpreted the Muller report, Muller answered back once then bowed out.

It was 8 months ago Barr got the report, and when was the last time Muller said anything about it ?, 4 months ago that when.

The GOP is backing Trump while his economic policies are working for the US economy which means working against almost every other Nation on earth, so it will be touch and go if Trump can survive for 2020, with the Neoconservative agenda failing in Latin America and the Germany.

Trump's manner is being questioned as technically prosecutable obstruction, however Trump's only obstructing the well being of Americans if his policies are causing uncertainty, conservatives are supposed to be the opposite, I think his policies are causing uncertainty but necessarily so in many ways.

Trump's policies are legitimate but his way of communicating with people is
so unorthodox the Globalists feel they can bring him down with complex arguments, if Trump was deliberately trying to enlist Zelensky into waylaing Joe Biden he would have used a back door method that is both obvious and overlooked, and Muller couldn't have injected the obstruction issue and then retired, if he'd did the issue would have gone away, Barr brough obstruction to the centre of attention.

So either Trump is not knowingly infringing accepted standards of protocol or he's settling out to shaft himself, because knowledge is 99% of credibility as you said in your opening post, but knowledge can not be the prerequisite for in depth legal procedures and it's not.

Barr I think doubled down on Muller and opened the gate to the impeachment inquiry by raising obstruction issues, so I agree with you about that technical issue but it's not very important, Trump doesn't need to make concessions to his financiers until his second term ends, if he does make concessions before 2020 he won't have a second term, "Concessions means Demands", and the period of Neoconservative austerity that Trump represents appears to be ending, or even over completely, the IMF, World Bank and Bank of International Settlements now want to change course.

I believe Dominique Strauss Khan was "mind controlled" by these people the last time IMF (ect.) wanted to change course 2011, they wanted to break from the UN at that time, but now feel Trump's adventurous policies have failed and want to roll them back with the appeasement policy that Dominique Strauss Khan stood for, Trump can't really understand what's going on.
