      Shinrikyo, and Scientology - also include direct links to current and archived
      news reports.

      === A word about our URLs

      I regularly receive mail from people who are puzzled by our site's URLs.

      Our main URL (and domain name) is http://www.apologeticsindex.org/
      However, since Apologetics Index is a Gospelcom alliance member, the site is
      hosted by Gospelcom - the most popular Christian web site (see press release
      below). Thus our URLs generally resolve to:


      In addition, Apologetics Index can be reached under these URLs:

      http://www.apologeticsindex.net (URL forwarding service, includes ads)
      http:www.graceandmercy.org (for a planned special section with articles on grace
      and mercy - the two features that set Christianity apart from any other
      http://www.religionnewsreport.org (currently leads to the RNR index page)

      For details about our linking and copyright policy, see:


      In closing, a press release from Gospelcom:
