Correction of errors on this website
Errors found & corrected during 2011
At the start of 2011, our website contained over 5,400 essays and menus.
During 2011, to date, we ran across the following errors, which we have fixed:
- Our essay on the Urantia Book listed an incorrect date for the beginning of Urantia history. It is believed to be 1,000,000,000 years ago.
- Our essay on quotes about homosexuality once contained a quote taken from "The gay marriage debate rages on," an Email from Chick Publications received on 2008-AUG-12. However, we have been unable to absolutely confirm this source when challenged, because both our Emails and Email file backup for that era had failed. So, we deleted the quotation at least temporarily.
- In one of our essays on interfaith marriages, we incorrectly attributed a belief of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints -- the main Mormon denomination. It involved admission to the highest level of Heaven -- the Celestial Kingdom.
- In one of our many essays on prophecies of TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it), we said that Pope Leo IX predicted that the end of the world would happen on or about 2014. But it was really Leo X. I don't know whether we made the mistake or whether it was our source -- Sun magazine. Unfortunately, dozens of websites have copied the error.
- We spelled an author's name wrong ("Lawson" instead of the correct "Larson") in our essay on the Book of Abraham.
- We said that Rhode Island has the smallest population of any state in the U.S. Actually, it is 44th on a list of populations. It is, however, the smallest in terms of area.
- In our essay on Christmas Wars for 2011, we wrote that the Tulsa OK traditional parade at Christmas time was sponsored by the City Council. In fact, it is run by a private organization.
