Correction of errors on this web site

Errors found & corrected during 2017

horizontal rule

At the start of 2016, our web site contained over 7,000 essays and menus.

During this year, to date, we ran across the following errors, which we have since fixed:

  • 2017-JAN-08: A visitor to our web site reported an error in our menu on stem cells. We discussed the discovery of a method to create induced pluripotent cells (iPS cells). Unfortunately, that discovery turned out to be a hoax that profoundly upset the scientific community at the time. Fortunately, a Japanese researcher, Shinya Yamanaka, later produced a method of generating these cells and received a Nobel prize. We have corrected the menu and an essay linked to that menu.

  • 2017-JAN-17: Another visitor to our web site pointed out an errror on our essay describing "The morality of abortion." It said, in part:

    "Similarly, human life in a woman might be interpreted as beginning some days before conception when an embryo is released from an ovary and starts traveling down the fallopian tube."

    "Embryo," of course, should be "ovum."

  • 2017-APR-25: Our "brief, two minute explanation of why some people are homosexual" contained a horrendous error. This essay, as originally written referred to Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, and his beliefs about the cause(s) of homosexual orientation. The essay originally said that he believed that:

    • children raised by a dominating mother and emotionally distant father often themselves had children who became homosexuals later in life.

That, of course is nonsensical. He actually taught that:

  • children raised by a dominating mother and emotionally distant father often became homosexuals themselves later in life.

Today, his belief is sometimes quoted but is rarely accepted as accurate.
