God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. (I Corinthians 1:28-29 NIV).
There are many people in our society that we consider smarter and more intelligent than others. But these people are often arrogant, and do not understand all that they think they understand. God will shame them, by not allowing them to believe the most fundamental truths of the universe, because they trusted in their own limited intellect to figure everything out. Rather, God will reveal the truth to those that we think are least likely to discover it.
