    I don't know if I agree with it...

    We are in a world where no one has time to read a long article explaining an issue fully anymore... most of us just don't have time.

    I wonder why they have not published a list of credible sources......

    :eusa_eh:


    There's at least one, right?

    Yes, Master of the Obvious.

    The question is: WHY IS THERE NO LIST OF CREDIBLE SOURCES?
