Wikipedia articles are supposed to be supported by evidence.  This is described in the Verifiability content policy.

The Verifiability policy is very useful as you explore, for two reasons:

  1. The discussions show you what kinds of statements or ideas require support or evidence in conversations about your topic area.
  2. The citations themselves are resources you can use.
