It is without a doubt that you will acquire lots of information about the topic that you typed into your search engine of choice; some of it may be accurate, whereas, a portion of the information would be inaccurate. The duty lies upon us to pick sense out of nonsense. Or, as they say, “Take everything with a pinch of salt.”
The Important Factor Is Your Source Of Information
In every subject that you can fathom, there are experts who can guide you on the right path to finding out what you need to know.
Then there are those who are merely sharing their opinion about a subject (Whether or not, their opinion is a correct one, a person can tryout the offered information to see if it actually holds any sort of substance).
Choosing A Reputable Source
In my school days, I didn’t have a computer, or internet access. Those who were part of my generation did their research for school projects, the old-fashioned way; we explored the contents of the encyclopedia along with the information provided within our textbooks.
We also had the help from well-trained teachers who learned their field of work at reputable universities (It was almost impossible to go wrong with that kind of guidance).
Today, some students are going online and they are using the information provided by Wikipedia as a source of reference; the problem with this is that anyone can contribute information to Wikipedia and one doesn’t need to be a well-learned scholar in order to do so.
It is not Rocket Science that when we learn the wrong thing, it will be regurgitated sooner or later by us; this sort of thing can cause anyone to do poorly at examinations.
Acquiring information from reliable sources does have its advantages. Therefore, we should not waste unnecessary time and energy behind information provided by proverbial quacks.
However, to be balanced, it would be wise to learn the various aspects of a subject from numerous sources; but one must remember to make that clear differentiation of what is orthodox information and what is unorthodox information and not to merge the two of them.
