Agar main aisa manta, main check karega. I argue and check and ask. One sourse can be untrue. In order to make sure, I have to argue and argue. Thanks Just Learner for sharing!

Hi Arif, interesting topic!
Well... I attain knowledge mostly because I am curious to know the things, I don't see any other option behind it. Of course to be knowledgable makes me a person capable of arguing on the specific topics but it is kinda side effect to me. To sum it up I would choose the option to ascertain right and wrong but our personal right and wrong of course differ as we percieve the things differently...

Some of these options are very funny interesting, but my fav one is "To recognize the Creator". Yeah! Otherwise I could mix God with Superman XD

To know how to live better. 

If we don't know anything (including not learning experiences), people will easily deceive us,  we will easily get sick,  we can only work a few kinds of works, people around will underestimate us.... etc. 

Thanks for your nice topic,  my bro. 

         My friend, knowledge is the secret soled key to open, every day, new doors in our life, to make our dreams true ,our life more comfortable, our experiences more meaningful and our future brighter. What do we want more?!!!

         Well done my friend, keep going. God bless you. Sorry, I have forgotten to mention that; in addition to what knowledge gives us, it also gave us a friend like you!!!!! We don't want more of that!!!!

In my opinion, the main reason why we attain knowledge is to ascertain right and wrong. after we know whether it's right or wrong we can do some actions to perceive some issues around. But the knowledge itself sometimes not pure, means it's mixed of people's perspective. So, even though people get the same knowledge, they don't have the same perspective which cause they give the different actions to perceive the right or wrong issues. That's it.

Hello Arif

To correct action is the best choice because when you correct your actions then your heart is clean and guide you toward the right pass, when you go on the right pass, you reach God.

 hi i think knowledge makes some one from a   illiterate to literature. it will reduce one ego, complex   but one thing  you must remember if we got some knowledge from somewhere we have the right to to exchange that knowledge to some one. A knowledge person can do  several  social welfare activities

Hello Arif, let me think about this…

a) To argue? Isn’t the same with letter E? Just so happen that when we are looking for right and discern that from what is wrong eventually inflicts argument, if there is someone who will try to falsify what we thought is right, valid and true.

 b) To correct actions? Ours or others? If both, well, this quite a hard journey for someone who will attain knowledge to correct actions, are we going to live for that? Sometimes, fully engulfed to other people will draw us to more confusions.

c) To recognize Creator? Knowing myself I will nod my head continuously for this and will say “yes, absolutely!”

d) To gain higher status in society? I don’t think so. That’s not very exciting.

e) to ascertain right and wrong? Please see letter a again and smile.

My choice? For sure, you know by now, Arif. 

@Dara,

Yes, you may be right, but bear it in brain that thousand lies can't make something true.

Thank for the reply.

@Luci,

Despite having physical, social, cultural and religious differences, don't let the differences derail train of virtual relation. :). I am glad to know that your option is great. The more you attain the knowledge about right and wrong, the more it strengthen virtual relation.

@Marry,

To recognise the Creator, you need not only to attain knowledge but to be very keen observant also. Thank for the reply.
