What about the credibility of the page you are getting this information from?

It is a strength of character to admit it when we might be mistaken, and a weakness of character to be unable to admit it when we are mistaken.

In this age of Internet and information technology, we should almost always check the credibility of our sources. Especially when controversial claims are made, since they often tend to be based on weak sources.
