Sophists were a group of ancient Greeks that were wandering teachers. They based their existence on philosophy and believed strongly in educating the masses in the areas of the arts. Well The purpose of this community is to bring you a 101 so to speak in various subjects. For more information on the Sophist, read the post in the memories marked “History of Sophists.” The diffrence between the orginal Sophist and Modern Day Sophists is that facts are now more important than delivery.

As this community was created for the sole purpose of expressing opinions and sharing knowledge, you will inevitably run into those who are closed-minded and do not know how to have an intellectually stimulating debate or sharing of views. This should not be a problem for you if you are a levelheaded person, capable of handling the fact that not everyone on the planet agrees with your view. Unfortunately, as I am sure you have all witnessed there seems to be a plague of idiots on live journal so while this should be assumed, I must go ahead and say it. Please by courteous, and respectful or the others do not judge someone for their ignorance on the subject, after all this is to help enlighten others. I will ban users who are unable to honor this simple request.
