Stupidity is a condition sustained by belief in its relief by intelligence, but because intelligence is inimical to belief, stupidity is unrelieved believing.

Belief creates stupor, as does alcohol. One is "God-intoxicated." It is a pleasant state. One does not want to be relieved of it.

How can you be relieved and unrelieved simultaneously??

To believe you can be relieved of believing is to be unrelievable.

"Illusion" is a noun and "unrelievable" is an adjective, so no, that doesn't work.

What don't you like about, "To believe you can be relieved of believing is to be unrelievable"? I find it accurate, and funny to boot.
