Sites

While the publishers of Apologetics Index operate from an orthodox, evangelical Christian point of view, the intent of this site is to provide research resources from a variety of perspectives.

Therefore, unlike many other websites that deal with the issues we address, many topics on this site include links to Christian, non-Christian and secular research resources, presented from neutral, pro, and contra viewpoints.

Note: A simple color-coding system is used to help you identify the general background of sites, articles and other listings.

Main, Official Sites
Non-Christian Alephoffsite Official, English-language site with information about Aum's (Aleph's) doctrines, as well as PR material ostensibly showing that the movement has distantiated itself from Aum's previous criminal actions.
The ultimate objective of this website is to make ourselves understood and accepted by the society. And for that purpose we have been reforming our system and have been disclosing, through many channels including this website, the internal information of Aleph as much as possible.

Research Resources on AUM from other sources
Secular A Chronology of Police Actionsoffsite The author of this site, which is no longer updated, writes:
This site exists to document the actions of the Japanese police against the Aum Shinri Kyo. I neither have nor desire affiliation with either organization, and find the practices of both highly questionable. However, every day the world is shown what Aum has been doing, and no one seems to be keeping tabs on the police.
Secular Group Resources - Aum Shinrikyooffsite Resources and links from the American Family Foundation
Secular Terrorism: Question and Answers - Aum Shinrikyooffsite This site is operated by the Council on Foreign Relations:
Founded in 1921, the Council on Foreign Relations is a nonpartisan membership organization, research center, and publisher. It is dedicated to increasing America's understanding of the world and contributing ideas to U.S. foreign policy. The Council accomplishes this mainly by promoting constructive discussions both in private and in public, and by publishing Foreign Affairs, the leading journal on global issues. The Council is host to the widest possible range of views, but an advocate of none, though its research fellows and independent task forces do take policy stands.
