Hating something does not mean that one does not possess much knowledge about it, or does not strive to possess knowledge about it. In fact, only when one has adequate knowledge about something should the person venture to judge whether he or she likes or loathes that thing. Even in case of the things one abhors, knowledge should not be ignored. That same knowledge can increase the liking, or decrease the disliking for a thing. And, who knows when that knowledge might come in handy?
