Youtube Skeptics
Should I just dismiss skeptics that use YouTube as their only source of information, or should I just trust that there is some validity on the subject and debate them using proper evidence regardless of their sources?

RE: Youtube Skeptics
Focus on what's being said, rather than where it's coming from.

If you're confronted with too many people to talk to, and you have to pick and choose who you want to talk to, then sure. Go with whatever resource has had a track record of being most credible, and producing/attracting the best people.

RE: Youtube Skeptics
I would look to other sources first, rather then relying on youtube.

YouTube can have the benefit of easily digestible information, not everything that comes from YouTube is great, nor is it crap. Like poolboy said, focus on what's being said.

RE: Youtube Skeptics
You should review the evidence they put forward and base a judgement on that, not where it is from.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

I would not call some one who uses only youtube for research a "Skeptic"
They would be closer to a conspiracy nutjob, than a skeptic.

An actual skeptic would not trust a few youtube quotes as evidence ,and skeptics usually double their research efforts if confirmation bias is suspected.

Question a real skeptical as long as your preprepared to be drowned in hyperlinks,

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
