Why do people think Wikipedia is a unreliable source?

Please answer.

  • Wikipedia -

    That's a very good question. Anyone who buys that nonsense is relying on other people to do his research and thinking for him ... or her!

    If someone doesn't want to believe what an Wikipedia article has in it, that person is free to use the references and external links at the bottom of just about every Wikipedia page there is!

    You said: "Anyone who buys that nonsense is relying on other people to do his research and thinking for him ... or her!"

    What do you mean by that?

  • Wikipedia -

    I mean that you are not thinking for yourself. Critical thinking includes not "buying" (believing) everything that other people tell you.

    Read lots.
    Question lots.
    Think, think, think.
    Come to YOUR OWN conclusions (which may or may not coincide with someone else's).

  • Wikipedia -

    Amen to Writeacher. I think Wikipedia is a really great resource.
