As if this makes you an expert on anything and, as if everything published by the SCIENTIFIC community is to be considered as FACT.
Both of you have a point. Internet sources are often highly unreliable and should only be used when other sources are too hard to get or too expensive. On the other hand, peer reviewed journals tend to be biased on certain areas of science and therefore unlikely to give you a balanced view of the available evidence regarding those particular areas. Thus, both the person limiting himself to "conspiracy websites" and the person limiting himself to "peer reviewed journals" are only able to see on particular perspective of an issue and thereby risk being poorly informed.
