We know our knowledge. Don't we?
If we know our knowledge then why do we search for it?

Definitions
KNOWLEDGE

Knowledge is a familiarity with someone or something, which can include facts, information, descriptions, or skills acquired through experience or education. It can refer to the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.
http://en.wikipedia.org...

KNOWLEDGE
the fact or state of knowing
http://dictionary.reference.com...

Argument:
Knowledge is something we can not fully achieve. It is the gap between God and the human mind. We do have knowledge, but the true question is how much knowledge do we have. We still have the world to explore and the space to examine. We understand life, but we do not understand it completely. Even after decades and decades of years pass, we will still ponder if we know our knowledge. Our search for knowledge is a never ending quest for the ultimate victory: intelligence of all things.

Conclusion: Knowledge is something you can have, but the amount of knowledge makes "knowledge" never attainable.

Good luck and have fun.

Can we search for that which we do not know? For example, we have google search engine. we have to enter that which we we want to know in the search box.

Still the question is unanswered.
Do we know our knowledge or not?

Rebuttals

"Can we search for that which we do not know?"
Yes we can search for information online, but there are STILL so many other information that is undiscovered.
Ex. The ocean is not even completely explored.
"Do we know our knowledge or not?"
Obivously I took on this debate, since I do not believe that we know our knowledge.


Argument
He did not refute any of my arguments.
So my argument still stands.

Conclusion: Knowledge is something you can have, but the amount of knowledge makes "knowledge" never attainable.
Which means that we don't know our knowledge.

Have fun and good luck.
