1 Corinthians 3:19-20 ESV

Mike the evolution religion is a clear example. They "lead" the Universities and all education as the most knowlageable and yet they are 100% off track and wrong.
They dont belive the Bible as it is written. They think they know better than Gods Word.
Trying to be clever before people makes us unwise before God. God sees right trough all "cleverness"
Maybe @Woodchuck can say more.

Mike,
Isaiah 55:8-9 says,
8 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways," declares 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.
This is one way of seeing that the wisdom of the world cannot match the Wisdom of God.
Paul taught in 1Corinthians 2:6-8 & 11-15 explains in more detail how the 2 wisdoms are not comparable, neither can they be. God's ways are higher & different than our ways. Out ways are sinful, while God's ways are Holy (set apart).
Hope this is helpful. :)

" For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their craftiness," and again, "The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.""

#Bible https://www.mydailybible.org/dv/esv/2019-04-14.htm
Can somebody please "translate" or explain this?
What Paul was saying is, wisdom of the world is worldly wisdom. Worldly wisdom is limited to mans perception of himself. That is why it is folly to God. God laughs (figure of speech) because man thinks he knows what is best but yet will not pick up God's word. Man misleads himself. The "wise in their craftiness" means man thinks he is wise and tries to be crafty. The Tower of Babel is a great example. Man tries to build a tower to elevate himself like God instead of being humble and following God. Therefore man can be crafty. Who else was crafty? Satan, when he deceived Eve. A crafty heart is a heart with evil selfish intentions that devises ways to get ahead. The futile part means there will be no good fruit produced (futile-pointless). Therefore, men who think they are wise will not produce fruit and they deceive themselves. It's folly or... foolish.

Hope that helps brother.

Thank ya'll. That's now very clear. I'm still trying to find my personal path, one that makes sense to me and is still in line.
Mike,
The only personal path that is real & works is a personal relationship with Jesus, as your personal Lord & Savior.
He stated that He is the way, the truth & the life & no one can come to The Father, except thru Him. John 14:6.
Hope that helps.:)
