Is the internet really a good place to find information?A lot of people have learnt the truth about jehovahs witnesses through the internet, via web sites that proclaim to expose the truth about them.
But is the internet a safe place to gather information on important subjects?grated its very easy to find what you are looking for most of the time,but just how trust worthy is the information found within?Often when I look at sites that discuss subject I have a good knowledge of there is a lot of nonsense talked by people who havent got a clue but just want to have a say.it is not always easy for the "novice" to determine who is the "expert" and who is not.
The Internet suffers from this problem more than say books, because it is so easy for just anyone to write what they want, whereas to make a book you have to go through a lot of effort and it will have been read and checked by other people.
I tend to treat the internet like I treat people.I only listen if people can give a good explaination as to what they are saying or believe, if none is provided I will ignore the information whethr it is correct or not as there is no basis for me to trust it.
So in order to give good information we must always try to explain why we belive something to be the case.
Dont just trust what you read (most people dont anyway)always look for the reasons why, and think of counter arguments , only then except what is writen and still be a little sceptical.
