Do you have prior knowledge of the current research topic you are working on? If you do, are you sure that the knowledge is accurate? If information you obtain during the research is contradictory to your prior knowledge, what will you do? If you choose to accept the new knowledge, how do you justify doing so--what makes you think the new knowledge is more accurate or relevant than your prior knowledge? If you decide that your prior knowledge is more accurate, can you justify it? Do you have proof? Have you searched and found major evidence that supports your decision?
