Which do you think is actually more important ,we spent hours in school memorizing names and hard mathematical formulas which will never probably use, when we can actually find everything in the web.We can obtain knowledge very easy but talent is something rare and special.What do you think which is more important and why ?

I would go with talent. If you have the talent you can acquire knowledge. Some of the great scientists who have done a good deal of inventions hardly completed their formal eduacation. If you have the talent you can reach any height of success. On the way you can also learn a lot of things.

I agree with you talent is way more important,we should pay more attetion into creating thing than simply copying and pasting them.After all only talented people are mentioned in history books!

Talent is a given; knowledge is something that you have to acquire with effort. I donĀ“t think that knowledge and memorizing names is the same thing though. Memorizing might or might not br psrt of knowledge.

Well I am not saying that it is the same thing but memory is a tricky thing you can not be absolutely sure about the things you know.Also you can not be an expert in every topic so the amount of knoweledge that we have is limited.

knowledge and talent both is useful.. if you have knowlege you shuld know how to use it and put it into practice.. otherwise that knowledge is a waste.. however you may have talent but if you dont have knowlege then another problem.. u wont be able to use your talent effective or effiecinently without proper knowlege..

I can't choose between these two. talent might be superior, however I think if someone got talent and knowledge that supported his / her talent, that would be an advantage. I still think knowledge is more important. because talents are usually hidden, we might never realize our own talents. and it might take a long time to discover our talents while knowledge can be learned quickly, as long as we pay attention to it.
