I'm always amused by the horror that some express about the possibility of getting "wrong" information from sites like CiC, and the necessity of unlearning it all. -As if any other subject was immune from a range of opinions.

Unlearning is much harder than learning. Once you've internalised a faulty conceptual framework, dismantling it and starting again from scratch is really, really difficult. That is a major source of the disputes here, that there are many who find that so hard that they would rather argue that black is white than do it.

Best to learn what is correct in the first place. You're quite right, of course, most technical fields of endeavour are awash with 'a range of opinions', in other words, charlatans peddling nonsense, which has a tendency to drown out the science and engineering on which the whole thing was based in the first place.

The really interesting thing about this discussion about CIC is no-one seems to dispute that it's wrong about many of the fundamentals, they just want to argue that that doesn't matter.
