Errata section: Correction
of errors on this web site
We try to write balanced, clear, objective and accurate essays.
Unfortunately, the nature of our site requires us to be generalists. We
know only a tiny bit about a wide range of religions and religious topics. We
must base our essays on material obtained from religious books,
media accounts, Internet reports, personal contacts, and other sources. We are
continually amazed at the amount of misinformation and disinformation
circulating about religion and spirituality. Unfortunately, we sometimes incorporate
these errors into our essays without realizing it.
Fortunately, our visitors occasionally E-mail
us and alert us to errors that we have picked up from these sources. When our
visitors include the name of the file (e.g. christ.htm) and a description of the error, we are able to
find the correct file from among the over 6,300 essays and
menus in our web site 1 and make any needed corrections. We hope that the end result is a gradual increase in the
accuracy of the web site, and thus of its credibility.
We have listed significant error corrections that we have made since
mid-2000. In addition to these corrections, we also make dozens of minor updates to
existing essays each day as new information becomes available. We also create one or more new essays daily.
- The number of essays and menus was correct as of 2014-JAN-28. It is
continually increasing, slightly more than one a day.
