Sunday Intellectual Question: Finding Sources
This is just another thing that I feel deserves some discussion. In today's universe we obviously have access to a lot of information. In schools we seem to be aiming towards being able to find the information but not being able to own it (in memory), or analyse it. Many of our sources claim to be absolutely true and relaible, just look at news commercials on TV that is almost always what they say, combined with the idea that they should be our only source for information. So, what is the best way to find reliable, truthful sources? How should we analyze them and what can we look to as a way of understanding how true they are? Interesting.
