I do agree semi that we should have a scientific background of things. To know what something is and why it exists, helps us to understand its complexity and for me that makes things more intriguing and draws me in more. But on the other hand, I can see a down side to having previous knowledge about something. It predisposes us to others opinions. We are no longer able to have an unbiased reaction to something because someone else's ideas and thoughts have already been put into our minds. It is a double edged sword and I do not know which is worse: being ignorant to things around us or being ignorant to allow others to decide how we view things.
