**I, me, my or any other reference to a person involved with this site is in regards to not just a specific individual, but any party(ies) involved with this site.**

The information presented within this site is not meant to be presented as truth, just as information. Information (hopefully) of value is being presented. However, in all cases, information presented in any format is flavored with the personal world-view of the author, and this site is surely no exception. So, please keep that in mind.

Every attempt has been made to make the material on this site, AN UNLIKE WORLD, as accurate as possible. Direct sources are not usually used for specific information or material, though. There are many links to other internet sites and these places, among other sources, are where much of the information has come from. All information or any reproduction of information, etc. will have come from varying sources and if a citation or references is needed, a cite and/or link will be present. Plagiarizing, breaking any copyright laws or infringing on any rights is what is trying to be avoided. Effort is being made to avoid being irresponsible, but something that may be of value to someone else could have been missed. If it was, please
interact.

Even though the information is as accurate as can be, this site has not been made to be worthy of being a primary source. If you are looking for information with which to use for some sort of paper, etc., you should not rely on this site alone. There are a lot of links with which could be used as sources and have much more information. It should also be mentioned, which is no less important, do as much research as you can. Do not just use this site and consider it to be definitive. Check everything that has been put on here if it something that is important to you for whatever reason.
________________________________

This web site, AN UNLIKE WORLD, was created, primarily, for an outlet for organized information and sources of info. The material is presented in a way that will hopefully be easy for people to learn. Hopefully it can help to create a more informed world, if only a little. Otherwise, it would be great to be seen as an interesting website.
________________________________

Material on this site could be seen as not suitable for children. That said, the material that would be unsuitable would be things that may seem scary and frightening as this site covers that type of material. Though any horror or scary things is not glorified, it can still be frightening.

As long as one has an open mind, than by conventional standards in the USA, very little would be considered obsene or inappropriate for a young child to see. However, it was not designed specifically with children in mind and may not be all that interesting to them. Further, it's necessary to use your own parental discretion to allow a minor to view material on this site and to allow a minor to visit other websites or webrings listed here. Sites listed that have objectionable or unsuitable content or images will be clearly labeled.

The pages are best seen in a screen setting of 1024 X 768. This site was designed for that screen size / resolution. In time, hopefully, it will be made to be more accessable for screens with at least 800 X 600.
________________________________

Pages which are primarily for content are designed with dark, hopefully, unobtrusive backgrounds using light colored texts. This is to facilitate those with vision problems, especially those with color differentiating problems. Further, this design format is used in order to be simple and make the information, etc. be easily read. Texts with different purposes have been designed with different sizes. For example, any links next to regular text will almost always be a different size. Further, all external links will have a web address starting with
http:// next or below them.
