Well, I took a look at the websites you mentioned. While they both
contained introductory materials, they did not explain it as simply as I
would like it. What I would like is a website showing the bare-bones view
of various basics, so that one could argue rationally about them ("I see
here that you attribute X to Y, which makes it rational to do Z...").

This would go for a lot of other theories and models, like
nanotechnology. Ideally one would have "support and consequence trees":
the facts and ideas which support and lead to the basic idea, and the
logical consequences of it. I think it would look good in a graphical
form, and make discussing them easier.
