"Wikipedia's articles are no place for strong views. Or rather, we feel about strong views the way that a natural history museum feels about tigers. We admire them and want our visitors to see how fierce and clever they are, so we stuff them and mount them for close inspection. We put up all sorts of carefully worded signs to get people to appreciate them as much as we do. But however much we adore tigers, a live tiger loose in the museum is seen as an urgent problem." --WP:TIGER[1]

Melbourne, FL[edit]

I put the section back in, mainly because although a bit gaudy it was all true, and all seemed to be valid articles.

Perhaps get rid of the arrows, move to the back?

The Georgia Page[edit]

Actually, now that I think about it, I went to the Georgia page and went through the links of the major cities. When I went to each cities page I checked out there metro status and Macon came in third behind Atlanta and Augusta.

Dated cleanup tags[edit]

Hi, thanks for your message, SmackBot does not generally add tags, but merely dates those that are already there. Regards, Rich Farmbrough, 12:11 7 August 2007 (GMT).

Catholic Churches[edit]

You offered some comments last week about a proposed deletion of Incarnation Catholic Church and School (Glendale, California). You correctly noted that the article was rough, as it had just been started. I have been preparing articles on some of the significant parishes in Los Angeles and wondered if you'd have a few minutes to take a look and make suggestions on format, content, info boxes, etc. One of your notes indicated that the number of members was key data, and I agree, but do you know of any verifiable source to determine membership for Catholic parishes? Examples of the parishes I have so far created articles for are: St. Andrew's Catholic Church, Pasadena, St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church, St. Charles Borromeo Church (North Hollywood), and St. Finbar Catholic Church and School (Burbank, California).

Brandywine[edit]

Brandywine is a general disambiguation page (which Brandywine Creek and Brandywine River) point to.

I went through all the Brandywine references and updated them to point to the appropriate articles. There were and are many pages referring to either "Brandywine Creek" or "Brandywine River" and not necessarily pointing to the correct one.

"Brandywine River" can refer to: "Brandywine Creek (Christina River)" or "Brandywine Creek (Cuyahoga River)". or the fictional (Hobbit/Rings Trilogy) Middle Earth river.

"Brandywine Creek" refers to at least 25 different ones in the U.S.

(5) Brandywine in British Columbia, (2) Brandywine in Nova Scotia, and more outside of North America ...

Rivers are officially disambiguated by their downstream_parent, for instance Brandywine (Christina River), only when that fails, then a reasonable civil sub-division. See WikiProject Rivers for more details.

If you undo my updates, you are on your own...

Charles Adams[edit]

I am not particularly familiar with Vermont but I try to edit pages with correct links, sources, etc. Adams' page says the town so it has been fixed to that. Any correction to my corrections can be made. Thanks for the thanks!

Vandalism of articles[edit]

Please make a point of editing articles only when you are knowledgeable of the subject matter and exercise restraint in deleting relevant and valuable substantive content that has been contributed to articles by other editors who have donated their time and expertise to the expansion of knowledge through Wikipedia.

(from a newbie who never, ever, signs his posts! And who overwhelmed an article with a gallery of pictures despite having been told by two editors about WP:NOTIMAGE. Ah, well. )

Pavlovsk[edit]

One of the purposes of the set index articles on Russian inhabited localities is to list the entities for which an article is not yet created but should be. Having those links makes the sets complete, generates the backlinks which help prioritize the articles to be created, points out to the correct title under which the article needs to be created, and, by aggregating all links in one place, prevents the proliferation of countless useless stubs which are basically one line repeating the description in the set index. Furthermore, there is nothing confusing about a red link. Please continue on that set's talk page if you still disagree. The only real problem with that page is that it is currently unreferenced; I will have that fixed.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); February 6, 2012; 14:22 (UTC)

WikiProject Christianity Newsletter (June 2013)[edit]

Ichthus dark yellow.png

ICHTHUS

June 2013

From the Editor

ბუმბული.png
Since its formation in 2006, WikiProject Christianity has come a long way. A significant number of new articles have appeared on a wide range of topics, and the quality of some key articles has seen dramatic improvement. Yet, by the very nature of the open, crowd-sourced development environment in which we operate, as the number of pages in the project has increased at times our attention has been naturally diluted. We should of course strive for quality everywhere, but we should remember that this newsletter is called Ichthus.

Starting this month we will start a "Focus on" series, where we will try to "bring Jesus back" and focus on him. For five consecutive issues we will focus on one aspect of the study of Jesus. The goal of this series is to inform our members of what the project contains and highlight those articles which have reached quality and stability.

From this month until November we will focus on the historical Jesus, a topic which has been the subject of much discussion on article talk pages, as well as the general media. This is an important topic, and we have a good set of well referenced articles on that now. Then, starting in December we will focus on Christ, and the spiritual and theological elements that the title entails. Following that the review of the life and ministry of Jesus in the New Testament, his miracles, and parables will take place. And each month the "Bookshelf" will mention a book that fits the theme of the month.

We hope you will enjoy this journey as we present a new aspect of Jesus each month. And given that as the number of project pages increases, the ratio of those watching the pages declines, we hope that more of you will watch some of these central pages that help define this project.

Church of the month

Church of All Saints, Winthorpe - geograph.org.uk - 1117642.jpg

The current building of All Saints' Church, Winthorpe in Nottinghamshire, England which was completed in 1888, is at least the third version of the church, which dates back to at least the early 13th century.

Good articles and DYKs
The article Jesus received the good article mark last month, as did Cleeve Abbey. A number of churches were featured on the main page in the DYK section in May, namely St. Lamberti, Hildesheim, Karja church, Braaby Church, St Patrick's Liverpool, Vlah Church, Freerslev Church, Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, Mata-Utu, St. Michael's Cathedral (Sitka, Alaska), St. Lamberti, Hildesheim, Karja church, Braaby Church, St. Pierre Cathedral, Saint-Pierre, Mont Saint Michel Abbey, St Patrick's Church, Liverpool, Vlah Church, St Catherine of Siena Church, Cocking, Catedral Nuestra Señora de La Asunción, Roholte Church, Notre Dame Cathedral, Taiohae, Leicester Abbey, Caracas Cathedral, Caldey Abbey, King's Mead Priory, Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Hong Kong) andAll Saints' Church, Winthorpe, as well as the hymn What Wondrous Love Is This.

Focus on...

THE
HISTORICAL JESUS

Did Jesus exist? Did he walk the streets of Jerusalem? The Historicity of Jesus article answers these questions with a firm affirmative. Historicity does not discuss if Jesus walked on water, but if he walked at all. The issue was the subject of scholarly debate before the end of last century, but the academic debate is almost over now. As the article discusses, virtually all academic opposition to the existence of Jesus has evaporated away now and scholars see it as a concluded issue. The discussion is now just among mostly self-published non-academics.

In 2011 John Dickson tweeted that if anyone finds a professor of history who denies that Jesus lived,he would eat a page of his Bible (Matthew 1 he said). Dickson's Bible is still safe.

The article discusses the ancient sources that relate to Jesus and how they fit together to establish that he existed. The evidence for Jesus is not just based on the Christian gospels, but by inter-relating them with non-Christian sources, and the fact that they all "fit together". Moreover, the existence of Jesus is not supported just by Christian scholars and in recent years the detailed knowledge of Jewish scholars and their discoveries (e.g. Shlomo Pines' discovery of the Syriac Josephus) has proven highly beneficial. We encourage you to read and follow the article, for the existence of Jesus is central to the existence of Christianity.

Jesus Outside the New Testament: An Introduction to the Ancient Evidence by Robert Van Voorst, 2000 ISBN 0-8028-4368-9

Just a few years after its publication, Van Voorst's book has become the standard comprehensive text for the discussion of ancient sources that relate to Jesus and his historicity. This detailed yet really readable book has received wide ranging endorsements - Blomberg and Harris separately referring to it as the most comprehensive treatment of the subject.

Did you know...

A Handel manuscript

May 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Logical Cowboy. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Deep frying, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Please see WP:RS. That was not a reliable source. Logical Cowboy (talk) 21:31, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Agree. It is hard to find WP:RS on any food preparation topic. They are, after all, recipes, but I think I succeeded in finding three. Student7 (talk) 23:32, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Quoting pov sources[edit]

I hope that you didn't really mean that - of course we quote reliable sources that are pov, it is the article as a whole that needs to meet NPOV. Dougweller (talk) 17:48, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

I meant that we don't paraphrase a pov portion of an otherwise npov/rs so we say that Group x are truly idiots. Nearly all large rs sources I read have, somewhere in them, povs that really don't belong in an npov encyclopedia.
I agree that "quote" may have been the wrong term. If Notable Politician A says that Notable President B is truly an idiot, (and the source is rs) I suppose it will wind up in at least two articles. Student7 (talk) 20:53, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Having said that, I think I would just confuse the issue at this point, by conceding your point on the talk page. You already corrected my wording in the succeeding edit summary. Student7 (talk) 21:00, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Criticism of marriage article[edit]

Why did you remove the quote from G B Shaw? You said it was POV. Well, of course it was POV - it was Shaw's own POV that is presented to readers. His views are not endorsed, they are simply explained in the article. The article is called 'Criticism of marriage' and as such it describes the ideas of authors who dissagree with marriage. It does not endorse these ideas, it just presents them in the article. That is the scope of that article - to describe the criticisms of marriage that were given by relevant commentators. When the article says "X argues that...", it does not endorse that view, just presents it. 2A02:2F0A:506F:FFFF:0:0:50C:711D (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 11:17, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Yancy and Yancey[edit]

Regarding your edits to anti-Christian sentiment:

George A. Yancey, sociologist: https://faculty.unt.edu/editprofile.php?pid=1525#6 Note on his publications he published the article/book "Atheists, Agnostics, Spirituals and Christians: Assessing Confirmation Bias within a Measure of Cognitive Ability"

George Yancy, philosophy: http://www.duq.edu/academics/faculty/george-yancy Different university, different discipline. He studies race philosophy rather than religion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sigeng (talkcontribs) 23:18, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
