Was ITIL Foundation Certificate dumbest

Yes this is what you think when you put your money in certificate that's neither required nor has purpose.

ITIL Foundation Level The Foundation level is the entry level qualification which offers you a general awareness of the key elements, concepts and terminology used in the ITIL® service lifecycle, including the links between lifeycle stages, the processes used and their contribution to service management practices. If I have money I would love to attend all courses and do all certifications because best part of these certificates is that we take a break from normal work and spend time with intellect & experienced cohort. I really love PMP, Scrum, and technical training's because they bring opportunity to share experiences. ITIL course was similar participation and certificate exam was tough; but at the end of day I realized I have been doing this for past 10 years and do I still need a certificate. Why would a company ask for ITIL foundation certificate is they already know he or she works in a reputed IT company. Whatever I learned during course I found my current organization provided similar training multiple times for free and certificate questions were same as one I answered in organization training's.  At last I was convinced we should take training's forced on us in organization are seriously worth.

ITIL certificates are good for some one in Service team, LSS team, etc. and as mentioned on theirr web site This qualification is primarily aimed at:
  • Those who require a basic understanding of the ITIL framework
  • Those who need understanding of how ITIL can be used to enhance IT service management within an organization
  • IT professionals or others working within an organization that has adopted and adapted ITIL and who need to be informed about, or contribute to, ongoing service improvement.
All above comes with cost but if you have good experience (or 5+ IT experience) then you don't need to prove yourself with ITIL foundation certificate. If you are doing it for knowledge and interest then it suits you,
