Correction of errors on this web site
Errors found & corrected during 2015
At the start of 2015, our web site contained over 6,700 essays and menus.
During this year, to date, we ran across the following errors, which we have since fixed:
- 2015-JUL-01: In our essay that described "The U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage (aka gay marriage) across the U.S. in its ruling of The Obergefell v. Hodges
case from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, & Tennessee; Part 43," we quoted results from a new Rasmusson poll on "states rights:"
essay was corrected on JUL-06 to read:
In the original "9 percentage points" had been written as "19 percentage points." The error was in place for about a week.
"33% of likely U.S. voters believe that states should have the right to ignore federal court rulings if their elected state representatives agree. This is an increase from 9 percentage points in a February poll."
- 2015-NOV-05: In our essay on the main practices of the Watchtower Society (a.k.a. WTS, Jehovah's Witness) we glossed over the inensity of the impact that disfellowshipping of a member causes in her or his family of origin. We created a new essay that discusses all aspects of disfellowshipping.
- 2015-DEC-29: A visitor to our web site pointed out what is probably the most embarrasing error that we have ever made during the two decades that our web site has been online. In our essay that compares the life of Horus -- a God of ancient Egypt -- and Yeshua of Nazareth (a.k.a. Jesus Christ), the first event discussed was their conception. The correct answers should have been:
- Horus, conceived "By Isis, a virgin goddess of ancient Egypt."
- Jesus, conceived "By Mary, a virgin human woman. Various denominations have accepted or rejected her virginity.
Unfortunately, we reversed the two.
