Ignorance is the state God intended for Man.  The Book of Genesis is very clear on this.  According to Genesis<ref>Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-24</ref> God created Adam and Eve and gave them one single command which was not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil; in other words, to remain in a state of ignorance.  Adam and Eve broke this commandment.  The idea that Man should have knowledge was so repugnant and antithetical to God that He punished not just Adam and Eve but all Mankind.
