I'm not going to hold your hand and guide you to knowledge, but I will give you some advice to make your education easier. Besides learning the
information should be half the fun.
I would suggest starting with one forum at a time. That is what I did. As I started to familiarize myself with the various popular theories and
arguments for and against them, I'd move onto other forums. Now I can just sit on the recent posts page and post on just about anything.
Also I'd suggest showing some humility and familiarize yourself with a topic throughly before lending your opinion to it. I know it may be tempting to
read something that you are absolutely sure is wrong, the person saying it is an idiot and you need to let him know. However, you may end up posting
something only to end up looking completely foolish.
Follow links to sources that posters provide and read the information. Don't take anything that a poster says at face value even if they have source
material posted. I've seen time and again where people post a source but have only read about half of it and completely missed the end of the article
that contradicts their entire argument.
Once more thing, make sure you are familiar with logical fallacies
. If you have poor arguing
ability you won't last long on these forums.
