    I just need your opinions. I tend to check almost always Wikipedia for anything, especially current events—buildings recently been under construction, bombings, death of famous people etc. However, I suspect the validity and reliance of Wikipedia as a source of knowledge since it allows users to edit anything freely. Britannica, in my opinion, deserves much more respect.

    I notice that Wikipedia has a pop-up box when I go to its site and the box says that Wikipedia needs money to keep going as an information website. But when I did a bit of research online about it, I find articles saying that Wikipedia does not need money because it is a wealthy "company" so -to-speak,. Is someone running a scam? Should I donate to help their costs, or will they manage without donations and someone somewhere is trying to cleverly get people's money?

  • What is wrong with this certain Wikipedia page?

    Best answer: The most likely cause is that their age is not being reported using a template.

The Age template is usually used to automatically report the correct age based on the reported start date.

    Another possibility is some sort of caching issue. Try purging the page cache by appending ?action=purge to the URL and hitting enter in your address bar.

  • Atheists, how would you respond to a theist who claims that belief in God is a foundational belief, or self evident ideas?

    Best answer: Self-justifying beliefs still need to be justified; they just aren't justified by relying on other beliefs.
    What quality of God makes it self-evident, self-justified, without relying on other beliefs?

    We would need to compare God with other self-evident things.
    What other self-evident things are there?

  • Is the Wikipedia website an inaccurate source?

    Best answer: 99% of the time, but since anyone can edit a Wikipedia article it leads to vandalism, which can cause any given article to be inaccurate at any given time.

    Best answer: Depends how you are linking to it.
    The chances are if your website seems inaccurate and unreliable it will be unlinked from wikipedia. However if your site actually has got useful and reliable content on it, it will be kept.

  • Why are people still so stupid to believe that Wikipedia is inaccurate due to editing when it has REFERENCES and NOTES?

    I mean, don't the notes and references make it a reliable source then??? Even Wiki slash Wikia do the same thing, and with Monster High Wiki and EAH Wiki, they say "Source", especially with Ever After High Wiki with "Example-name/cartoon". I mean seriously!!!

  • How can you tell if someone's location on facebook is actually where they are?

    For example, if a friend on facebook puts their status as "was eating at McDonald's - Chicago, Illinois" is there a way to know if they set that themselves or if they're actually there?
