Yes it is Christian. We remember the tree of 'knowledge'. God wanted us to be stupid. Or the inventors of god.
Being smart is apparently anti-religion in the Muslim world also. I find these numbers explain everything (I think I posted that before but it's so incredible):
Jews: ~ 15 million worldwide, 67 Nobel Prize winners
Islam: ~ 1.6 billion worldwide, 2 Nobel Prize winners
Christianity is Pauline ... Judaism and Islam are not. Paul says basically that the wise are stupid and the stupid are wise, because G-d is playing a gotcha game with humanity (aka those who are first will be last, those who are last will be first). This wheel of fortune model applies to more than just wisdom, but to wealth, power etc ... and is also driven by the notion that all things are fleeting, and the in the end everyone arrives naked into the hands of an angry judge.
Pacific Islanders, as I have been told, have never won any Nobel prizes ... which after Obama, aren't worth much. On the other hand, the return of Jews from annihilation to prominence ... kind of illustrates part of Paul's higher theology.
