Bodily Disappearances[edit]

Hey Joe. I've added a few things to the "resurrection" entry that may help you in some way. Gesar, Muhammad, Sikh gurus, and Lord Raglan's Hero Pattern list. Take a look. Charlie Turek, magician charlesturek@comcast.net


Thanks for your help to new religious movements[edit]

I agree that the article is a mess, mainly because of a large cut and paste job. Also because the subject in itself is messy, complicated and controversial. We could use some help if you are willing to study NRMs. Andries 18:49, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)

To answer what books you should read to enable you to contribute to NRM related articels please read the following
1. book by David V. Barrett's New Believers, and
2. Eileen Barker's Introduction to NRMs.
3. Also read the websites of Robert Priddy and Steven Hassan and Rick Ross.
4. We do not need opinions in the articles but hard facts. so please go to the University libary and find and study empirical reserach. You can find references to the empirical research in Barker's book

Tybee lighthouse construction[edit]

Hi Joe - are you able to find out what sort of wood was used to build it? - they certainly won't have gone to the trouble of importing cedar from the Mediterranean region or India, it will likely have been something locally sourced. Probably either juniper, cypress or thuja, all of which have been mis-named 'cedar' on occasion. For the moment, I've changed the wording to 'brick and wood'. It also needs metric data. - MPF 08:19, 8 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Hi Joe - thanks; I can see it'll be difficult! From the location, the most likely is Eastern Juniper, but Atlantic White Cypress is also possible; the former tends to grow on dry sandy sites, the latter on swampy sites; the juniper is native in that area of Georgia, but the cypress would have to be brought down the coast from North Carolina (easy enough on a barge). Hope you have a great trip there! - MPF 09:07, 8 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Osiris - Dionysus[edit]

Hello.

Could you help fix the Osiris-Dionysus article? I have noticed you using that talk page. The article should contain information from Osiris and Dionysus though with respect to Mystery religions rather than earlier legends.

I would prefer it not to include Historicity of Jesus as that doesn't seem very relevant to much more than a small summary and then a link to Historicity of Jesus which (now) contains that information (I am currently slowly editing that page, so it looks a bit of a mess at the moment).

The Osiris and Dionysus pages will need to have a link back to the Osiris-Dionysus page as will Attis etc.

Google may be a good place to look for content.

The Osiris-Dionysus page will need to be linked to from Life-death-rebirth deity as well.

Duplication on any of those pages will need to be removed, and replaced with a short summary linking to the Osiris-Dionysus page.

SIGH... bots. I requested permission for this image long ago from the Tybee photographer who took it and who placed it online elsewhere...

Possibly unfree File:Photograph of Album Cover.JPG[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Photograph of Album Cover.JPG, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files because its copyright status is unclear or disputed. If the file's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. You may find more information on the file description page. You are welcome to add comments to its entry at the discussion if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. --multichill (talk) 20:10, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Let's see... I can comment on the deletion "debate" link and I can't comment on the image page because it was deleted... But this is bull***t. I never really had time to respond to the issue. Time has passed from Jan 17th until today, but the image was totally free of copyright, I knew the man who snapped the photograph personally. I denoted this on the image's page. This process is bs. Same as my Tybee Lighthouse photo (mentioned above). I worked to specifically get the rights to reproduce the image for use on Wikipedia from the original photographer and it was later removed. I think it's being abused by folks who want to use their own photos and have found removal of the existing the best way to achieve this (at least, this is the only reasoning I can come up with).

Proposed deletion of Chos-kyi 'byung-gnas[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Chos-kyi 'byung-gnas has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Appears to be something belonging more at wikitionary, if anything. Lacks context as well, and it is not apparent how this article could be improved to more than a sentence in Bardo Thodol

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

John Schattner[edit]

Hi Joe, Thank you for restoring that information. I got an edit conflict when I tried to do it. I assume that was your restoration. The edit just after pizzamancer's where the editor reffered to 'unsourced slander' also needs to be undone. (Turns out its pretty much a direct quote from an article. If its not done yet, I'll do it. I think that page bears some watching. pizzamancer and the other person look like they may have issues with wikipedia polices. Jjk (talk) 19:15, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
