CAUTION - CAUTION - CAUTION
Students and others are sure to run into some strange things on the internet and just in conversation. Some of it is pure trash, some thought provoking, some down right scary. Here is a partial list. When you look at these it will be obvious to any educated, thinking person that some of it is complete garbage. Others are so well presented that you might just wonder - could it be? These sites are presented here to give teachers a heads-up as to what is out there. It is easy to get so deep into this stuff, and paranoid, that you won't believe rational explanations any more. Some of the authors of these types of web pages (and books, articles, radio talk show, etc.) think everything is a cover- up or deliberate mis-information. Some will just take a weird point of view to keep an argument going. And then there are those who have figured out that there is big money in bazaar things.
I always encourage keeping an open mind and be skeptical. Also, be reasonable and really think things through.
