OK, I Give Up Again! Why even Go to even University? Some don’t like to go to Seminary thinking they will end up in Semitary and finally Cemetery. I gave it one more shot. I think, hey, I have been building a case of persuasion, here in Oakland, and speaking out against it publicly in many places, I can even reach by bus.

Perhaps even using this blog as a reference.
Low and behold, after finding resources in the Kaplan Library and on the Internet I find myself contradicting myself. Who should I believe is a reliable resource? It is Kaplan? Is it Wikipedia? Is it some website? And, I don't know who those people are and if they are really who they claim to be? Is it the government? I am stuck. I don't know who to believe anymore. After I had a persuasive argument for why I should continue to smoke, using myself as a guinea pig, like doctors have been using me for years, Huh?

It has gotten to the point where I can’t do research, without contradicting myself using past and current reliable references, what ever a reliable resource is supposed to mean today. I end up GIGO at some point in my research when I am supposed to be a reliable resource. Instead I have to change horses in the middle of the stream and report the fallacies of the facts I found.
