About this web site:

Content:

Unlike almost all other religious web sites, we don't promote the beliefs and practices of a single denomination, faith group, or sect within a single religion.

Instead we try to explain the beliefs, practices, and history of a wide range of faith groups, and promote religious understanding, coexistence, cooperation, and tolerance.

Other web sites that discuss religious information generally include only news that has developed in the immediate past -- perhaps during the previous day. This web site often tells a complete story from beginning to end, sometimes covering a few weeks or even years. An example was the story of the 50 murders at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand during 2019-MAR. We covered developments over a month's time in five articles. Another was the 2019-APR fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. We consolidated information from nine news articles published over a few days into a single article about the tragedy.

Conventions used:

Visitors come to this web site from all over the world. So, we had to select a uniform style for dates. We chose a Year-Month-Day sequence, like 2019-APR-11, which is clear and unambiguous. If we had used a convention like 04-11-19 then some visitors would read this as April 11, 2019 and others would decode it as NOV-04, 2019.

To designate years, rather than use the AD/BC convention which is Christian in origin, we use the newer universal designations:

CE is equivalent to AD and refers to the "Common Era:" dates that run from 1 to the present year 2019.

BCE is equivalent to BC. It refers to dates "Before the Common Era." that run before 1 CE.
