The gospel[edit]

Just a reminder that rollbacks without explanations should be done to revert vandalism only. [1] --NeilN talk to me 03:28, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Unexplained revert[edit]

Can you please explain why you made this revert? I am quite certain my version is correct. הסרפד (call me Hasirpad) 03:27, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

If you notice, I reverted myself right after. 03:29, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
My apologies. The 'Notifications' system can occasionally be misleading. הסרפד (call me Hasirpad) 03:33, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

I would suggest a change from "Assyrian Church" to "Church of the East" in view of the schism between the Assyrian Church of the East and the Ancient Church of the East. Esoglou (talk) 07:00, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

I didn't make the image, just changed the description. Editor2020 17:05, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

You are welcome brother :)[edit]

There are many verses from the Buddhist Holy Text "Tipitaka" which rejects the idea of God and ridicules it. There are many sources for that. But the hypocrites revert the changes. I hope we both can make a great contribution. with metta.

I hope you will refrain from quoting extensively from the Buddhist sutras. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 06:03, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Dear Joshua I am not going to paste whole Buddhist text or sutras on wikipedia. Just like you can give the verse from the Quran or Chapter no. Se we can give it too...but you should rather inform others. and yes Views of the Buddha( who is my spirit) should be quoted. Stalkford (talk) 15:27, 26 May 2014 (UTC) Much metta.

Thanks for the metta. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 15:32, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Historicity of the Bible[edit]

Why do you keep reverting changes?

Only 62.9% is subjective, it infers you think this is a small number. One could just as subjectively write "as much as 62.9%" removing the word 'only' adds neutrality.

Also, you are taking [1] out of context. The blog article infers that evidence shows that "Biblical archaeology has helped us understand a lot about the world of the Bible and clarified a considerable amount of what we find in the Bible." (direct quote). You are using part of this quote to infer that it shows that the bible is historically incorrect. Using a quote starting with "but" shows you have only used part of a conjecture.

Please advise why you are classing these changes as vandalism as they are adding neutrality to the article. 203.26.178.133 (talk) 04:50, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

That line—"Biblical archaeology basically supports the historical veracity of the Bible"—is one of the three things that Enns wants people to stop saying (see the title of the article). Enns disagrees with that statement. You're using it as if Enns agrees; that's just a misuse of the source. --Atethnekos (DiscussionContributions) 03:17, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
Understood, but my point is the article only classifies ONE issue where there is a strong consensus against validity whereas the line "Archaeological discoveries in the nineteenth and twentieth century have supported few of the Old Testament's historical narratives and refuted many of the others" infers that the majority are disputed. This is not in the article at all and a relevant source should be used to back this up or the actual quote used. "Biblical archaeology has helped us understand a lot about the world of the Bible and clarified a considerable amount of what we find in the Bible." This does not say that the majority of old testament narratives are disputed.
What about the 62.9%, the actual text this is pulled from states that "this result is quite amazing" using "only 62.9%" is taking the author out of context. 203.26.178.133 (talk) 04:50, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Sorry about the labeling but I had just reversed a few blatant vandals and was still in that mode. My apologies. I have no problem with the text as it now stands (with the complete quote provided). As far as the second change, if the source given uses "only", we should use "only". If not it should be deleted. Editor2020 16:14, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

The Source does not use "only", the source actually states that it's "quite amazing" that this high a percentage correlates. I've checked a lot of the sources in this article and there are many POV adjectives added that were not in the original source, I'll go through and update some of these.203.26.178.133 (talk) 22:10, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Please provide quotes if you do so. Thanks!Editor2020 01:22, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Biblical Mount Sinai[edit]

Have you reviewed the latest additions? I haven't had a chance yet - your contribution at Talk:Biblical Mount Sinai would be appreciated. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 06:52, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Josephus[edit]

Some material has been deleted from the Biblical Mount Sinai article which clarified two important statements made by ancient historian Josephus. (1) The general location where Mount Sinai was regarded to exist in his day (a mountain that lay between Egypt and Arabia) (2) That the mountain was "the highest of all mountains" in that area.

Also deleted was the fact that Mount Sinai is not one peak but a series of peaks (which the average person is not aware of) and Etheria's confirmation that it appears as one mountain but actually contains several peaks when entered.

The average reader misreads Josephus as referring to Mount Catherine when he was more than likely referring to "Mount Sinai" as a whole.

Mount Katherine and Jebel Musa are both much higher than any mountains in the Sinaitic desert, or in all of Midian.

The above facts contribute reason for consideration of the traditional Mount Sinai as a suggested location for the alleged original.

When I first came upon this article it gave great weight to fringe theory locations and gave space to wild theories of plasma phenomena, etc. When I first read the article I felt I was reading an article which was saying: "Mount Sinai cannot be in the southern Sinai Peninsula but it seems like it might be in these other locations." The traditional site has for decades been broadly supported by scholarship and meets the test of notability but undue weight was given to newer, untested ideas. CWatchman (talk) 18:08, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Please add back anything you feel is necessary, as long as you have references. Editor2020 18:13, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Supersessionism[edit]

Dear Editor2020, I noticed your edits on Category:Supersessionism. The result is that we have this once again categorized both under Category:Christianity and antisemitism and its immediate parent category Category:Religious antisemitism. I would suggest removing the latter as this is a specific Christian topic. Kind regards, 22:13, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

You are correct. I will fix it. Editor2020 03:22, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

ahem[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bible&diff=613215935&oldid=613190933 some discussion and respect would be appreciated. --Tznkai (talk) 01:37, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

No disrespect intended. Per wp:brd, now is the time for discussion on the article's Talk page. Editor2020 15:54, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
I'm glad none was intended, since a blithe "not an improvement" is usually taken to be a rude dismissal of the efforts of others. Would you please explain your reasons, on the talk page, for not only thinking that my changes were not an improvement, but also why they were so unhelpful you reverted instead of attempting to integrate the changes? I quote the aformentioned essay: "Revert an edit if it is not an improvement, and it cannot be immediately fixed by refinement. Consider reverting only when necessary. It is not the intention of this page to encourage reverting. When reverting, be specific about your reasons in the edit summary and use links if needed. Look at the article's edit history and its talk page to see if a discussion has begun. If not, you may begin one (see this list for a glossary of common abbreviations you might see)." (emphasis added) --Tznkai (talk) 17:09, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
Replied on my talk page.--Tznkai (talk) 17:29, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks to you also. --Lagoset (talk) 08:34, 17 June 2014 (UTC)


Arguable either way[edit]

I went back and forth a few times before re-reverting. I think there's only one syllable there, and I remember "plug" from when I was a kid back in the 60s. While "pluck" makes sense in a food context, it was very common to use "plug" to imply shooting or stabbing someone (as common then as "capping" someone is now). May well be an "each his own" situation. Gee, I don't see why a flash conversion of an .mpeg file of DVD rip of an 80 year old movie isn't dispositive. However, definition 24 here (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/plug) where it speaks to removing a core or piece seems more in line with scalpel use.Zooks527 (talk) 10:39, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

I listened over and over, but can't say for sure. It could be "plug", so I'm not going to revert. Editor2020 17:09, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Language of Jesus[edit]

Dear Editor2020, I noticed you reverted a categorization in the article Language of Jesus. It concerned the category "Jesus and history". Please note that this category is not just about the historicity of Jesus:

  • "Topics range from the culture and history of the Early first century Palestine and surrounding areas, through discussions of archaeological, textual and/or historical evidence supporting or denying Jesus' existence as an actual historical figure, to ancient texts describing figures similar to the traditional figure of Jesus."

I would think that Language of Jesus would be one of the best fitting articles in this category, don't you agree? Marcocapelle (talk) 12:06, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

I don't think so, but if you add it I won't raise a ruckus. (By the way, thank you for all your work on reducing the amount of overcategorization in the religious categories.) Editor2020 17:13, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
You're very welcome, in fact you're pleasantly surprising me here because I had no idea that anyone would consciously notice this :-) Marcocapelle (talk) 20:51, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Hebrew Roots[edit]

This entire page was reformatted, reorganized, and titled by me in 2012. As can be seen on the talk pages, this effectively ended the discussions and issues going on between the various contributors. There has been other contributions to the article since that time but there has not been any significant format changes since 2012 by anyone. Obviously you disagree. This page is organized for content. That is not to say it is complete. If you have specific recommendations, please let me know and I will make them.Mikeprescott (talk) 17:17, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Please see Wikipedia:Ownership of articles. Editor2020 17:34, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Dear Editor 2020, I am very happy for your edit in the WP page Marxism and religion. I wished to post a thank you note to you, but I could not understand how exactly I would do this. I humbly request you, maybe venturing beyond my authority, that you may please keep this page under watch. This page has been subject to vandalism before. And yes, thousands of students every year do visit this page on Marxism. Strangely though, after the fall of USSR Marxism is being taught with more critical attitude across almost all the universities in the world (especially in countries like UK, USA, India, Egypt, etc.). Please, if possible, make this page a place of secure edits. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arghyan Opinions (talkcontribs) 02:12, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hi Editor2020, this is my new account. My old account was Jerm729, but I changed it because of too many issues with other users in discussions. The reason why I am telling you this because I believe your editing skills are always in a progressive state of...well...progression. Your edits in biblical articles I have never had an issue with, and I really appreciate your editing on biblical articles and Wikipedia in general. -- Cheers -- JudeccaXIII (talk) 04:48, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Editor2020 17:15, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Judeo-Christian topics[edit]

Dear Editor2020, the CfD about Judeo-Christian topics in which you participated has been closed with a decision to keep the category. Apart from that, what is your opinion about my statement in this discussion that the category has been polluted with many articles that do not seem to belong there? Very specifically, would you mind if I would try a cleanup - or do you just entirely disagree with this statement? Marcocapelle (talk) 21:15, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Please feel free to attempt a clean-up, paying attention to the actual meaning of Judeo-Christian, "a set of beliefs and ethics held in common by Judaism and Christianity". Editor2020 01:54, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
For now, I removed this category from 3 out of 4 child categories and removed the category from 4 out of 8 articles (this count excludes the lead article which I obviously left untouched). Personally I feel I've been very conservative. On the other hand, I'm curious if any reverts will happen. Marcocapelle (talk) 20:35, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Epic of Gilgamesh[edit]

My apologies for reverting your edits. The ip just before your edit was the one evading a block. Your edits got caught in an edit conflict as they weren't there on my edit screen. Sorry 'bout that, Vsmith (talk) 01:33, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

No problem. Editor2020 01:35, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Era nomenclature[edit]

Can be a bit tricky as WP:ERA isn't explicit about what it means by "established", but this one started as BCE and a few quick checks shows no changes, just the addition of a few BCs presumably as people edited without thinking about the whole article. So I've edited it so hopefully it is all now BCE and AD (not that we really need all those BCEs as usually it is pretty clear). Dougweller (talk) 16:43, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

I think that that is more appropriate for this article. thanks. Editor2020 02:34, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

greetings[edit]

hello. I do appreciate your hard work and edits and clean-ups and careful scrutiny of WP articles, especially Biblical and Religious and Philosophy type articles. Most of your edits and mods I agree with, and I consider very good, or I am ok with, as you notice. Not all obviously, but most. But I was a bit curious about something. I was wondering if you sometimes might be following me around a little bit. Or if you have me on your "watch list" or something. (I think I might have asked you this some time in the recent past.) The reason I ask is because I've noticed that you have edited articles RIGHT AFTER I have (or at least very soon after), even in articles where you have no real history prior, in editing. Like recently the "Hades" article, as one of a number of examples. If so, why? Just wondering. Let me know. Thanks. Gabby Merger (talk) 20:05, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Nope, but evidently we have similar interests. I was editing long before you came along. Look at my contributions list and you'll see that I edit a lot of pages. I do tend to visit them when a change has been made, maybe that's it. Editor2020 02:41, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
ps. Just a quick check, but it looks I edited Hades as early as Feb 6, 2011. But let me know it you have figured out how to follow someone. Editor2020 02:48, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Postmodern religion[edit]

Dear Editor 2020, I agree that postmodern religion is not a faith, but I do think that postmodern religion is a movement so that it belongs in the faiths and movements category. How else would you characterize postmodern religion if not as a movement? Marcocapelle (talk) 07:13, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Why not just categorize as it Category:Postmodern religion, under Category:Postmodernism and Category:Religion, but I agree it's a close call and won't complain if you think you must add Category:Religious faiths, traditions, and movements. Editor2020 17:41, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Surely it belongs under Postmodernism, no question about that. A reason on the side for me to add it to movements is that I can't believe that Postmodern religion is a completely isolated topic within religion. Marcocapelle (talk) 17:31, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Monogenēs[edit]

Dear Editor2020

The Quran does indeed state about Jesus uniqueness and born of virgin etc.

O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs. (4:171, Yusif Ali)

He said: "Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son. 20 She said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?" 21 He said: "So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us': It is a matter (so) decreed." (19:19-21, Yusif Ali)

And (remember) her who guarded her chastity: We breathed into her of Our spirit, and We made her and her son a sign for all peoples. (21:91, Yusif Ali

We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of messengers; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you a messenger with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay! (2:87, Yusif Ali)

Behold! Allah said: "O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow thee superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection: Then shall ye all return unto me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein ye dispute. (3:55, Yusif Ali)

Sura 4:171 -- O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not "Trinity": desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.

As I tried to make clear. The Quran and New Testament are in agreement. Excepting when various use the word 'begotten'. The word begotten is from NOT from the Greek monogenes but from the Latin and worse Vulgate at that.

That is why the Quran reacts the only begotten. But still expresses Jesus uniqueness.

Sura 21:26 -- And they say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten offspring." Glory to Him! they are (but) servants raised to honour.

Sura 23:91 -- No son did Allah beget, nor is there any god along with Him: (if there were many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have lorded it over others! Glory to Allah! (He is free) from the (sort of) things they attribute to Him!

Sura 112:3 -- He begetteth not, nor is He begotten;

It seems to me, that if you are interested in truth, then we should completely reject the later Latin corruptions which lead to the English only-begotten. And also cite supporting Quran scriptures of Jesus uniqueness and special position.

CfD concerning WP:PERFCAT (or not?)[edit]

Hey Editor2020, sports is not a subject I'm usually interested in but for this one I made an exception: Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2014_August_1#Category:2010_Tour_de_France_cyclists. It seems to me that it goes against WP:PERFCAT, what's your opinion? Marcocapelle (talk) 06:09, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Ditto on the not interested. I'll have to think about it. Editor2020 14:49, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Biblical Manuscript[edit]

All the early manuscripts in the New Testament table are papyri, except 4. The 4 that are not papyri are unicials. Before there were more than 4 unicials in the table but they have been removed and replaced with papyri. Papyri are the earliest ms of the NT. Happy editing!

Holy Comforter[edit]

I was updating the Comforter (disambiguation) page as I was surprised not to see the term "Holy Comforter". I'm not sure how to handle this as Paraclete is also an entry, but it can have more meanings. Wikipedia doesn't make it absolutely clear what the "Holy Comforter" is, but I believe it is a reference to the Holy Spirit (Christianity).— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 19:57, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

The Mote and the Beam[edit]

Show me where else in the Bible Jesus himself speaks of judging others. It's defining. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 15:00, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

As you wish. I won't change it. Editor2020 15:47, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
FYI, you might want to keep an eye on that one because they are discussing changing that Category:Judgment (Christianity) to Category:Judgment in religion. Editor2020 14:20, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Lamassu[edit]

Hello Editor2020! I have come across something puzzling, and I though perhaps you could help me sort it out. I just finished making a second set of copyedits to Cherub. I had made some copyedits about two weeks ago, and then listed some issues on my talk page at User talk:CorinneSD#Cherub, but got no help, so I went ahead and fixed things myself. I saw a nice photo at Persepolis#Gate of All Nations that I thought perhaps could be added to Cherub to illustrate "lamassu", but maybe the image that's already there is enough. But I am puzzled about something:

  • In the first paragraph of Cherub#Origins it says a shedu is a human-headed winged bull and, later in that paragraph, that a lamassu is a human-headed winged lion.
  • In the WP article Lamassu, it says "A lammasu is an Assyrian protective deity, often depicted with a bull or lions body, eagle's wings, and human's head".

I'm just wondering if the statement in "Cherub" should be modified, based on the information in the other two articles. CorinneSD (talk) 16:16, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't know the answer to your questions. Editor2020 21:07, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Book of Isaiah era-style[edit]

Hello, there is an issue in article: Book of Isaiah. The era-style is inconsistent. I changed some to BCE because I thought that was original consensus, but I'm not sure anymore. I viewed the article's history from the very beginning, and the first implement of era-style was BC/AD. Any suggestions on how to fix this? -- Cheers -- JudeccaXIII (talk) 22:32, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

I would say revert any recent changes. If the usage is inconsistent, I would open a discussion on the Talk page to get consensus for one usage. Editor2020 22:41, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
I started a discussion in the article's talk page. -- JudeccaXIII (talk) 02:48, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Ancient Roman religion[edit]

Hey Editor2020, why removed Paganism, good question. Normally I do add a reason, don't know why I forgot this time. The reason is that classical religions are usually no longer included in Paganism. It is Ancient Roman religion and Ancient Greek religion in contrast to Germanic paganism and Slavic paganism. By the way, the main article Paganism is very ambiguous in defining paganism. Marcocapelle (talk) 18:24, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

So Greek and Roman religion are not classified as pagan, but Germanic and Slavic (and others) are? Humm...I'm not sure I can work out the logic behind that. Editor2020 18:31, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Sacred Article[edit]

Hey, what's the best way for Wikipedia users to communicate? I was interested in discussing the article on Sacred. :)

If it's about the article, I would suggest the article's Talk page, otherwise the person's Talk page. Editor2020 22:13, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Category:Antisemitism[edit]

Hello — I noticed that your edit of Category:Antisemitism removed the parent category Category:Orientalism, edit here, with the edit summary “??”. I believe that “Orientalism” was used in the sense of “eastern”, as in Near East or Middle East. For example, the Oriental Institute, Oxford includes a Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies. Given that context, do you think the parent category was appropriate?  Unician   07:17, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

I don't think that the sense of "Eastern" would justify it and I don't think it's appropriate to the definition of Orientalism but if you feel strongly the other way please feel free to reverse it. Editor2020 17:44, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
No strong feelings about that, and I wouldn't have added that parent category originally; I was just trying to provide some background in response to the puzzled edit summary (“??”).  Unician   23:14, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
OK. Thanks! Editor2020 00:05, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

As per WP:SIGLINK could you add a link to your signature. Thanks. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 03:11, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

OK. Editor2020, Talk, 03:31, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Science section[edit]

The science section on the afterlife should be sourced to reliable sources and represent the mainstream scientific consensus. Adding in fringe proponents or parapsychologists and other paranormal cranks is not science. It was also unsourced. And yes if you check the edit history of the article there was an IP address also removing this. This was not me but you can see why. I don't think it is accurate to put fringe views in the science section. If you want that material in the article perhaps put it in the parapsychology section.

Removal of Category:Sexism from Transphobia[edit]

Please take the time to read or at least skim articles before removing categories. For example, the second paragraph which defines cissexism. A quick search of the article would have yielded multiple uses of the term 'sexism' defining its relationship with transphobia. Thank you. Yworo (talk) 14:52, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Category:Theology[edit]

I notice you're doing some work with categories, and that you removed this one. It is a theological belief, so do you have a replacement for it? It's not Christian theology, but pantheistic. Daniel David Palmer actually considered making it a religion. See D.D. Palmer's Religion of Chiropractic (PDF download) from the official archives. He often refers to himself with royal third person terminology and also as "Old Dad". It's well worth the read, and a real eye-opener for most people. -- Brangifer (talk) 19:38, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

I think it is categorized OK now, but what would you like to add? Category:Paranormal? Editor2020, Talk 22:29, September 14, 2014 (UTC)
LOL! Good one, and not far off base. Maybe Category:Religious philosophy? That's fairly general. Also Category:Pantheism. They both apply. -- Brangifer (talk) 22:54, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I see you already added them. Editor2020, Talk 23:00, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
They can be removed if they don't fit. -- Brangifer (talk) 23:07, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Good enough. I'm not sure about Category:Religious philosophy, but can't think of anything better. Editor2020, Talk 23:13, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
