Comment: Wikipedia has been an

(See in situ)


Wikipedia has been an

amazing wealth of information for me. It seems that critics of it tend to operate with a misconception that there is a source, somewhere out there, of the "actual" or "real" or "right" truth (dysfunctional Aristotelian concept that seems to promote intolerance). In the real world all things are always debatable and all sources are interpretations of data by unique human individuals. Change is constant. All information is always subject to change as information increases. We have no full knowledge, and therefore, no permanent truth on any one thing but we do our best as we continue striving for something closer to it. Wikipedia is not perfect, but, it may be a perfect reminder to us about the nature of "truth." Always check sources. Rather than to accept information as fact, perhaps it may better benefit one to view it in percentages of probability.

The chaos welcomes you.
