If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Translation of what I wrote at chess.com: Chess.com is crap. Their stuff is inferior and they expect you to pay for it. Lichess.org is better and it's totally free.

"I have become a better player over the past few years, but I still shy away from Sicilians due to the massive amount of theory and preparation required."
It's not necessary to memorize lots of stuff for this fantastic opening (especially the Najdorf Variation) for Black. Just understand the basics by studying how Fischer played it. Then just use it. When you get wiped out you have something to work with. Get a free and complete computer analysis of your game and find out what you did wrong. Never throw out the Najdorf Variation no matter how many times you are defeated. This advice was given to me a long time ago and I'm grateful for it.
I noticed that if use the Najdorf and I survive the opening and middle game, I usually have an advantage in the endgame. So it's important to study the endgame first, both strategy and how to do things.
Where can you get a fantastic and totally free computer analysis of your games? I can't answer that question because Big Brother is watching. My answer would be vaporized and I would never again be allowed to write comments here.
I suggest just pay for what this place offers. Chess.com has been improving everything so it's OK to help them pay their bills. I'm not writing this because Big Brother is watching. Chess.com really is getting better and that costs money.
