I'll take a chance on a few slings and arrows here myself:

8 "For My thoughts [are] not your thoughts, Nor [are] your ways My
ways," says the LORD.
9 "For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher
than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
(Isaiah 55:8-9, NKJV+).

20 Where [is] the wise? Where [is] the scribe? Where [is] the disputer
of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not
know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached
to save those who believe.
(1 Corinthians 1:20-21, NKJV+).

Food for thought?
