Thought provoking Emails that our visitors have
sent us on about 50 topics ... with our responses

horizontal rule

Overview:

Most of the Emails from our web site's visitors fall into one of four categories -- those containing:

bulletGeneral praise for our web site. We enjoy reading these.

bullet General condemnation of our entire web site. Some of these are quite amusing. Others contain death threats and are a bit scary.

bulletA description of an apparent error in one of our essays.

bulletInteresting 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: Bruce Robinson

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. 

Caution:

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.
