Augustine, antipodes and science[edit]

You may be interested in this: Talk:Augustine of Hippo#Augustine, antipodes and science, about the Augustine quote that has been repeatedly added to the article Augustine of Hippo. Regards, Paul August 19:50, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Thanks for your work on the David article. It makes a lot more sense now. Dizzizz (talk) 16:37, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Lot (Biblical)[edit]

Lol... I'm surprised that passage even stuck... I put that tidbit there lastnight wondering if someone would come along and delete the whole thing out... Its pretty cool that so far, there is no objection to the ****sexuality passage being there. Thank you for your clarification of that edit. Jasonasosa (talk) 13:57, 14 December 2010 (UTC)


Hi Lindert, please take a look at your Commons talkpage. --Túrelio (talk) 16:33, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for informing me about this, I was informed about using these sign marks long ago in talk pages so, I thought they should be used everywhere, however I just like using them everywhere just to make things clear just in case but, once again thank you.Moodswingster (talk) 01:55, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

You're good[edit]

I've had very limited success in getting responses from my postings on wikipedia's "discussion" pages...but your quick response and fix of my complaint on the Tacking(sailing) page was very refreshing! Kudos and a fair wind to you. Numuse37 (talk) 16:07, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Polyandry[edit]

That quote really has nothing to do with polyandry, but rather women who are captured/enslaved in war have their previously-existing marriage obligations unilaterally annulled (from the point of view of the captors). AnonMoos (talk) 10:15, 23 October 2011 (UTC)


Women in the Hebrew Bible[edit]

It would be more helpful if you added a bit of information about the difference in this respect between the OT and the Tanakh. After all, the lead (incorrectly) identifies the Tanakh with the Old Testament, which for Catholics (in the case of Judith) doesn't jive. Note also that there is significant discussion on the canonicity of Judith (The book of Judith: Greek text with an English translation, by Morton S. Enslin and Solomon Zeitlin), but most importantly, note how the article wavers between Old Testament and Hebrew scripture--citations and references are to the Christian bible. Consider expanding the article, not restricting it. The alternate option is to have a competing Women in the Old Testament, which would not be useful. Drmies (talk) 00:22, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Some stroopwafels for you![edit]

Gaufre biscuit.jpg Thanks for filling in the etymology at Llama. I can't believe we were missing such a basic fact. Steven Walling • talk 04:54, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

Book of Mormon horses[edit]

You said to post on the talk page and discuss, then you deleted my request to discuss. Why?Tapirrider (talk) 03:57, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

P. Amherst 2[edit]

It is exactly this text. Thanks for uploading, I will create article for this picture. With regards. Leszek Jańczuk (talk) 18:20, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes, it is P. Amherst 3a. Thanks for correcting me. Leszek Jańczuk (talk) 20:51, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

The Bible and History[edit]

Your observation, "the Bible gives an incomplete picture of the Biblical world is obvious, but not really meaningful. It is not an encyclopedia, so of course it is not comprehensive. That's like saying that Anne Frank's diary gives an incomplete picture of WW2. Obviously true, but that tells us nothing about its usefulness or reliability." I am impressed! That is a brilliant observation IMO! Thanks. Student7 (talk) 01:23, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

De Vrije Katheder, Nazi-occupied Netherlands[edit]

Dear Lindert, your reply to my Ref Desk query is tremedously helpful. The archives at my workplace holds documentary material relating to that group, in particular the activity of two brothers, Jaap (Jacob) and Sal (Sylvain) Bramson. See Item No. 1006 in the Artifacts section of the online archives for artifacts that originated in their 1942 incarceration for resistance activity. It's unlikely they were students at the University of Amsterdam, but the English language source you sent indicates that "... non-communists also participated in the resistance work of the Vrije Katheder-group." This helps validate the biographical material we received from their mother. I'll file the material you provided, for future reference. Many thanks! -- Deborahjay (talk) 06:32, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

John Argubright and Xulon Press[edit]

Noticed on your work page on list of etc that you've got this guy as a source. Xulon Press is self-published, so it can't be used as a source, and in any case Argubright[1] is a Creationist so not useful as a source for archaeology (or anything in fact, he doesn't seen significant enough). Dougweller (talk) 08:47, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

That's just copied from the article a long time ago. I am aware that page is hopelessly outdated, and I'm hardly using it anymore. Feel free to blank it or something. - Lindert (talk) 08:55, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 05:08, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Page Curation newsletter[edit]

Hey Lindert. I'm dropping you a note because you used to (or still do!) patrol new pages. This is just to let you know that we've deployed and developed Page Curation, which augments and supersedes Special:NewPages - there are a lot of interesting new features :). There's some help documentation here if you want to familiarise yourself with the system and start using it. If you find any bugs or have requests for new features, let us know here. Thanks!

David[edit]

I think you should review your sourses first before taking action.

Thank you.

your removal[edit]

I don't know, I am specifically asking, if it were to happen in America how much of a tort would it be? (Disturbing the peace, screaming in your face). The deaths are easier I think - I would just like to see it on the same scale. Do you have a more specific reason you think it's not a genuine question? --91.120.48.242 (talk) 12:33, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

At the top of the page it reads "if you need advice or opinions, it's better to ask elsewhere.". and "The reference desk does not answer requests for opinions or predictions about future events. Do not start a debate; please seek an internet forum instead.". There is no factual question in your post, and you only mentioned the US in passing. Everything in it is a matter of opinion, and the reference desk is not for speculation about hypothetical events (such as rockets fired into the US). - Lindert (talk) 12:42, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Hebrew Bible manuscripts, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Decalogue (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Bible and history[edit]

Sorry if I came across as a little short-tempered on the talk page - this kind of silly argument is the sort of thing that puts me right off wikipedia. There must be (and there are!) better ways to spend my time. PiCo (talk) 12:26, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm ReformedArsenal. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Paul the Apostle because it did not appear constructive.
