Just the facts, ma'am

Last night I learned of the existence of Karaite Jews. I was fascinated by them and dug around the Internet to learn about them.  They only accept the Old Testament as it stands and do not accept rabbinic commentary. They want to interpret and understand the scriptures for themselves.  I can really respect this. I am using lots of reference materials as I study the Bible and I am trying to understand it for myself and not just accept something because it's tradition or because someone with a title said it was so.
