Hello, I am the IP editor - you could call me A.J.K.
Thank you for your concern,
When are direct references to the Bible not considered original research? Is this not considered to be a primary source?
All the best, Andrew
I added a little something to the section about "Father, forgive them for they do not know what we do."
Jesus having the power to summon a legion of angels is never mentioned in the Bible. Nor is the greatest collected evil of mankind being present at his crucifixion. I mean c'mon, the people crucifying Jesus weren't evil, just misguided. Which ironically is the meaning of the saying.
Clearly, this page has been corrupted by unintelligent evangelical Christians. Don't get me wrong: I'm a Christian and have no intention of besmirching Jesus' name, but damn it, those wackos are the Christian equivalent of militant Muslims. All they do is give Christianity a bad name.
Please, I implore you to add citations to the claim of Jesus having the power to summon a legion of angels (at least before his death). A LEGITIMATE citation, not some made-up rant from a deluded preacher.
- Anon Editor - I just reverted your changes. If you'd like to edit the sentence so it reads more factual and/or correct, please feel free to do so. However, inserting your POV into in-line comments is NOT the way to do it as it only makes the page that much worse.
- Also please keep your comments on Talk discussions to ONLY matters of improving the page and do so in a civil manner. Denigrating previous editors as "unintelligent evangelical Christians" and "deluded preachers" is also NOT the way Talk works.
- All that being said, I do not disagree with your point. In fact, I'll go ahead and look at the section and tag/delete the most glaring issues of OR/non-NPOV. If you would like to discuss further ways to constructively improve the page, please feel free to reply on this thread or send me a note on my Talk page. In the meantime, I would suggest you reference Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines and Wikipedia:Civility for how Wiki works. Yours - Ckruschke (talk) 16:55, 7 November 2013 (UTC)Ckruschke
- Follow-up - it appears that the seemingly POV comments in each of the sections are direction quotes from Adam Hamilton's book "24 Hrs That Changed The World". I've added ref's to state that in each section. Not sure this is the way to go, but this is how whoever wrote these sections did it. I'll let others debate (if/as necessary) the page giving such specific credence to the thoughts of one book/author. Ckruschke (talk) 17:07, 7 November 2013 (UTC)Ckruschke
- I'll raise the issue: What purpose is served by the extended quotes from "Pastor Hamilton"? If there are debates regarding the significance of these words, then other views should be represented. If there are no such debates, then using these words directly seems more like a kind of Christian meditation rather than an encyclopedic statement of fact. 2001:7E8:C296:B101:2085:867A:3CF8:9599 (talk) 06:38, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
"He'lel, he'lel, lamah zabac to ni..." ... Lemuria?
Considering that this site even bothers to have an article for both Lemuria and Mu, I'm surprised that none of the theories of James Churchward or anyone else of the sort are even so much as hinted at. May someone fix this problem, if they can? Thanks. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:25, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
- Can you provide reliable sources that discuss these theories? I'd assume the theory that Jesus' sayings were in some unknown language from a continent that science has failed to find any significant evidence of would be considered a fringe theory and would be unfit for this article.
