About this website
We ask you, humbly, to help us.
We hope you enjoy this web site and what it represents.
If so, fantastic!
The thing is ... we're an independent group of normal people who donate our time to bring you the content on this website. We hope that it makes a difference.
Over the past year, expenses related to the site upkeep (from research to delivery) has increased ... while available funds to keep things afloat have decreased. We would love to continue bringing you the content, but we desperately need your help through monetary donations. Anything would help, from a one-off to small monthly donations.
$3? $5? $15? The option is yours. Regardless, your help would be appreciated.
Please click HERE to be taken to our donation page. Thank you so much.

Emails from visitors to this web site
We get mail:
We receive many unsolicited comments each day.
||Positive reviews outnumber the negative ones by about 3.5 to 1. In many cases, we get some really good ideas on how to improve our
web site, and follow up on them.
||Sometimes, we are asked a really interesting question which we try to answer to the best of our ability.
Other times, we get specific complaints from our readers which include the description of an error, and the name of the file where it
occurs. We welcome these because they enable us to improve the accuracy of our essays. These Emails are given the highest priority. The
file name is important to us because we are able to locate the problem text much quicker. Otherwise, we have to search for the file from
among our 8,200 or so essays and menus.
We document significant errors in our errata section. In the almost 20 years that our website has been online, we have never seen another religious website with an errata section. Apparently, the other tens of millions of religious websites either don't make errors. or don't acknowledge having made them.
||Unfortunately, most of the negative comments are non-specific. They are general attacks on our whole web site, and thus don't help us to
correct any errors.
Some of the more colorful responses are shown below. [We occasionally cannot resist adding our own comments in brackets.]
We have put approximately equal numbers of positive and negative comments because the latter are so amusing. They also demonstrate
the degree of hatred that can be generated by those who are religiously devout and yet profoundly intolerant. We have not edited any of the comments. However,
we inserted some dashes in place of letters in certain four letter words, in order to avoid upsetting our visitors. Of course, we have not published any information that would reveal anything about the identity or location of the writers.
