American Submitter: The Key To Knowledge (Audio Podcast)

Source: americansubmitter.org

The Wikipedia entry of Menlo Park, California literally begins with the words “Menlo Park is an affluent suburb”. Apparently 21% of Menlo Park residents work at Facebook. In any case, it’s still in many ways a typical nice and quiet suburb of America. I know this because I’ve been there. I went there to visit my friend Scott.

Scott grew up in Menlo Park and he and I currently study at an Islamic liberal arts college in Berkeley, California called Zaytuna College. In this episode we get to hear about his life, his existential struggles,  and the journey which eventually led him to Islam and now to Zaytuna College.

IS WIKIPEDIA RELIABLE? ART OF CONNECTION WITH BELAL KHAN

Some people feel that Wikipedia isn’t trustworthy because it’s a platform on which you can go in and change information.

That’s true, but only to a degree.

The reality is that if you change information on Wikipedia and you don’t have any kind of history or you’re new to the game, understand that majority of these pages have gatekeepers.

These are people who are dedicated to the page and the content that’s on the page so if you make any changes they’ll be alerted of it and revert back the changes and flag you if you didn’t follow any one of the guidelines.

The real issue with Wikipedia is that it’s a reference index.

Ultra-Orthodox Jewish women have always felt proud wearing modest dresses.

Ultra-Orthodox Jewish women proudly dress modestly in order not to attract attention of men who are not their husband.

Now, in some ultra-Orthodox Jewish sects, women have gone to a new level of modesty by covering their whole body and face.

Islamic Science in Wikipedia Articles

At Wikipedia, Islam-related articles are severely compromised by Muslim editors. An example of this is a 2010 incident where an editor with over 67,000 edits was caught intentionally inserting false information into articles.

Jagged 85 is the main contributor to the many inaccurate Islam/Science/Golden Age articles which are still being copied and pasted all over the internet by Muslims, and more than 20% of Wikipedia’s “Timeline of historic inventions” was provided by him.

With contributions to over 8,100 separate articles, it is unlikely that all of Jagged 85’s edits will ever be fixed. And even if they were, these Wikipedia articles have already been reproduced all over the net by other sites which use Wikipedia as a source.
