A word coined by playwright Sean Alan Morris, as a portmanteau of the words "Ignoramus" and "Cognescenti". Taken to mean a person who believes themselves to be terribly smart and over-educated, when in fact they are an ignorant fuck. Can refer to any of the supercilious and self-righteous douchenozzles that populate government bureaucratic institutions.
Anyone that calls themselves a "Creation Scientist" qualifies among an especially elite strata of ignoramescenti.
