Correction of errors on this web site
Errors found during 2010
At the start of 2010, our web site contained 5,124 essays and menus.
During 2010, to date, we ran across the following errors; all have been corrected:
- World Wide Church of God: We originally
stated that Herbert W. Armstrong taught the conventional Christian belief
about Heaven and Hell. That is, that believers would attain Heaven, others
would be sent to Hell for eternal punishment. Actually, he taught that
believers would reside on Earth with Jesus; sinners would be annihilated; and
Hell was reserved for Satan and his demons.
- Sikhism: Sikhs are forbidden to drink alcohol in any quantity.
Based on an error from another website about Sikhism, we had written that alcoholic drinks were permitted in small quantities.
- Speaking in tongues: We incorrectly identified Charles Parham as the founder of the Azusa Street Revival in 1906. Actually, it was one of Parham's students -- William J. Seymour, an African American preacher.
- In our essay that describes end-of-the-world prophecies for 2009 and 2010, we made a mathematical error converting number indicating the date 2010-OCT-01 (101001) from binary to decimal notation.
- In two essays describing a source of moral and ethical systems, we made one of the most embarrasing mistakes to date. We the misspelled the name of a species of mammal called bonobos. It came out "booboos," and slid right through our spelling checker.
- In listing Roman Catholic candidates for the presidency and vice-presidency, we overlooked Geraldine Ferarro in 1984.
