I think this is more of from a gap of ideology than it is from a generational gap. Again, I respect "life experience", but I still don't see it as particularly valuable. You could give two different people the same "life experience" and they're going to be different people. People are more a product of what they read and think-- their internal-life-- than they are of what they've experienced externally.

But I may still not understand what you're saying by "life experience."
Yeah, you aren't getting my definition of life experience. Looks like another...



Questions about this though...

I couldn't disagree more with this so let me ask ya...

1. How did you come to this conclusion?
2. Where have you seen this...if you have...in your personal life?
3. Does this apply to you?
