U r dum

Picture a football field. That football represents every fact you could possibly know

If you were to cover it with how much you know now, how much would you cover? (bascially how much do you think you know)'

If you would use anything more than a grain of sand, you're lying. Really, you couldn't say more than an electron.

This post is about the sheer amount of things there could be to know, and how insanely little us humans can actually know. And to think --- God knows it all.

Let me get you thinking about all the things you do not know:

How many people died on May 14, 1490?
How many tournaments have there been for Call of Duty?
What did Alexander the Great do on his 8th birthday?
How many grains of sand are on Lake Superior's beaches?
What was the name of the 141,582nd person to ever be born?
How many sins did George Washington commit on July 4, 1776?
How many people are praying right now?

Stars, electric guitar, Halo, baseball, atoms, the ocean, Zimbabwe, potatoes, trees, Wi-fi, anatomy, the Mayans, pianos, geography, geology, giraffes...

I could go on for pretty much forever. There are just so many things that we could theoretically know. To consider ourselves anything more than stupid is, well, dumb. Nobody in the universe knows more than .000000000000000000001% of all you could possibly know.

Think of this a different way.

Lets say every person you ever meet knows 1,000 things you don't know (a ridiculously low number). This can range from what they ate for lunch yesterday to the name of every character in their favorite book to facts about WWII.

There are 7 billion people or so. That means you could meet 7 billion people who each know a thousand things (again, a very low estimate) that you don't know. 7,000,000,000 x 1,000 = 7,000,000,000,000.
Willy Wonka - Oh really? Tell me more about how much you think you know

That's 7 trillion things you do not know. And God knows them all.

But amid all that, He still knows you.

Psalm 139: 1-3
You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
