The problem with Wikipedia is not that some items are full of lots of correct information .

Nor should you trust it - or Britannica or any other encyclopedia. It is a source of information and of links (references) to further information, confirming or contradicting the content.

If you're wise, you do not trust record jackets, CD booklets or compendia. You use them, one hopes wisely, but not as infallible sources. For those, turn to the revealed word as your faith dictates.
