    Based on the wikepedia definition do you think we at CFC are intellectuals.

    This line struck me the most from the wikepedia article:
    "Often significantly contributing to the formation and phrasing of ideas, intellectuals are both creators and critics of ideology."

    So do you think CFC'ers are intellectuals, State your reasons.

    No. A small subset of people on CFC are intellectuals. Most people in CFC are idiots.

    And everyone agrees on one thing: they (and those who agree with them) are the intellectuals, the rest are the ones who are idiots.

    At any rate, my mind is much deeper than my posts.

    Eh, not really. I'm pretty sure we can have a consensus that Perfection is an intellectual. :p

    I think we're a mix somewhere between the village's idiot and the mad scientist.

    A little bit of both, I'd say most of us are though.

    I'd say most people here in OT are smart, they are just very childish too...

    Not realy. Though some of us do put on an aura of being intellectuals.

    while many at CFC have great intellectual capacity, "intellectuals" would probably not apply to most.

    The members of CFC generally are not intellectuals but have the potential to become one.

    If by intellectuals you mean "verbose opinionated douchebags who blather on about smart-sounding topics" then yes.

    While I do read books related in one particular field, and while I do assess and critic different theories, I'd hardly be able to call myself a professional like a lawyer or anything like that just yet. So, no.
