Internet woes

Here are some observations on the perils of "intellectual" life on the Internet.

1- Never trust Internet sources.  Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they always do.

2- Never turn to anti-X sources for information about X.  Jewish anti-Christians will not fully inform you of the issues related to Christianity any more than Christian anti-Semites will properly inform you about Judaism.

3- Try to gain an in-depth understanding about an issue before drawing a conclusion.  Conclusions based on superficial knowledge and evidence are inevitably going to be made for the wrong reasons, even if you happen to guess correctly in any given instance.  Knowing the right answer means understanding why an answer is right, not knowing a correct fact by happenstance--like guessing on a true-false question on a test.
