Bad article as is: list more useful
This extremely weak article is at present wrongly conceived: it would be useful as a simple list of parson-naturalists. So I propose redirection to List:Parson-naturalists and content to be replaced accordingly (biographical details belong in biographies of individual persons). Could usefully be paralled by Category:Parson-naturalists. Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:06, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
- Oh, and the scope of 'parson' is ambiguous. I don't think a clear line exists bet. parson and vicar: both in literature and modern life I've seen/heard them used interchangeably. Seems right that parson is used for protestant denominations. Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:06, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Francis Linley Blathwayt
Not sure about this curious example - notability seems a bit doubtful, and as the only 19th century example along with Darwin (who wasn't), absolutely hopeless. If he gets his own article we can put him back. And yes, the comments about the article above were still accurate 4 years later, but I've now made a start at a decent list.
