I don't mean to offend blind people. Just wonders how they learn to recognize things they have never seen before. How are they imagine for example what is cars look like. Do you have any ideas?

people who are actually blind cant possibly answer you since they are blind. but possibly in the future, they can already use computers like us. being blind is very difficult. you already missed almost 100% of what normal people are enjoying. but of course, you cant give up. you have to live the way God wanted to be. He may have the reasons why a person have undergone this. some may provoke the one above, but would later on give up everything to him and would asked for guidance as he/she will go the journey of life with blindness. but even if he/she is blind, it doesn't mean that his/her life would also be full of darkness for a lot of people would love and care for them. they are special like anybody else. they may not be normal like others but they have talents and abilities to touch others' lives and be an inspiration.

I know what you mean. Everytime I see a blind people I let myself to imagine what difficulty they came over and what kind of pain they were suffered. That need strong personality! I don't know can I did as good as them if I was the unlucky guy. Anywell, I aspect and admire the blind people. I hope the developing technology will cure them the soon the better.
