Thought provoking Emails that our visitors have
sent us on about 50 topics ... with our responses
Most of the Emails from our web site's visitors fall into one of four categories -- those
|General praise for our web site. We enjoy
||General condemnation of our entire web site. Some
of these are quite amusing. Others contain death threats and are a bit scary.
|A description of an apparent error in one of our essays.
|Interesting theological, ethical, spiritual, and scientific questions.|
We have published a few representative samples of Emails containing praise and condemnation
elsewhere on this site. Some of these are
quite positive and encouraging; others are quite abusive, nasty, and vicious.
Occasionally, we receive death threats. We
investigate any reported errors and correct our essays as needed. We respond to death threats by keeping our heads down, and by not revealing our exact location or appearance. We don't publish a photograph of our staff members' outward appearance. We use a picture of their internal structure instead:
This section lists some of the interesting
theological/religious/moral/spiritual questions raised by our site
visitors. We have disguised the identity of the individuals who originated
the Email. We have re-written their questions for reasons of brevity or
clarity, and to hid the identity of the sender.
Almost all of the essays on our web site attempt to describe all
points of view on a given topic.
This section is an exception.
Only one of our staff members, working alone, replies to each
visitor's questions. Thus, each response consist of one person's
viewpoint. They may not reflect those of the rest of our group or even of the majority of our group.
