Correction of errors on this website
Errors found & corrected during 2012
At the start of 2012, our website contained over 6,000 essays and menus.
During 2012, to date, we have discovered the following errors, which we have fixed:
- Our essay comparing the flood stories in the Bible and in the ancient Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh contained an error. Our text blamed the Babylonian god Ea for the mass genocide. In reality, it was the god Enlil who wanted to exterminate humans; he convinced the other gods to do this. However, the god Ea went against that decision and warned one human to build an ark and save at least some of humanity and other animals.
- Our essay that compares the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, (a.k.a. the Mormon church, and the LDS) with those of evangelical denominations originally included a very embarrasing error. It stated that: "The Mormon faith is polygamous". It should have stated "The Mormon faith is polytheistic". The church leadership originally taught polygamy, but believe that they received a revelation from God to discontinue the practice late in the 19th century. The LDS teaches that God and Jesus are separate individuals. Thus their faith meets the definition of polytheism.
- Our essay on the Inquisition stated that in 1252: Pope Innocent III wrote a papal bull which authorized the use of torture during
inquisitional trials. Actually, it was Pope Innocent IV.
