  3. If your text book says A, it must be right. However, I think A is wrong.

  6. I think Ms. Sue is right.

    The problem with A is that it's too early -- the late 1500s. If you have read what Ms. Sue posted, you'll see that was about 100-200 years too early.

    And ... if you turn your nose up at Wikipedia, you'll be depriving yourself of lots of good research places. As with all Wikipedia search results, check out all the external links and further references at the bottom of each Wikipedia page.
