Monty Python's John Cleese couldn't describe the fundamentals of stupidity any more effectively without using this perfect analogy. You have to watch the whole video for clarity.

There are many things that I am not qualified to do and I do know the scope of my ignorance. Dentistry for instance. I've got the basics from watching it being performed, but there are many complexities. Just about anything that requires years of training could be used as an example. I don't require training in each field, I just need to be bright enough to know my limitations. Someone really stupid might presume to be qualified after watching some YouTube dentistry.

I can think of several fun ways to build a sentence using all of the words from your title.

I'm guessing a play of words regarding religious people.....oh Lord (pun intended )! Don't forget that materialists, spiritualists, theists and atheists share a fundamental similarity - they all have faith in their beliefs. If I were to perfectly prescribe to the scientific method then I would follow the agnostic path. I like Neil Degrasse's perspective which is refreshingly open and candid. The quickest way to learn is by assuming we know nothing and to listen. In hindsight, much like the developing mind of a baby.
