About Hitler's atheism[edit]

Some people want to prove here that Hitler was an atheist. I just found one of his many statements about religion [1]. Of course he was an athesit LOL. What you think of it ? 46.71.226.51 (talk) 16:15, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

It's unclear to me what article at Wikipedia you are talking about, since the issue here ought to be how to make coverage of content more accurate, as opposed to general discussions of what Hitler was or was not. It seems to me that the link you gave me here is quoting him as expressing support for, not opposition to, religious teaching. I think that we have to be careful about not letting Godwin's law get interjected into discussions of WP:NPOV in Wikipedia articles. --Tryptofish (talk) 20:12, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
For political purposes Hitler portrayed himself as a Catholic, but it's clear that he wasn't sincere about that. In private he often ridiculed the Catholic church, and whenever the church came into conflict with the Nazi party, the church was always the loser. Looie496 (talk) 03:11, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I ment Atheism article, where some people wanted to put Hitler's name near Stalin's name (like to show how evil are atheists). 46.71.96.237 (talk) 19:14, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Looie. 46, in that case, my opinion is that editors should never want to put content into an article to "show" something is good or bad – instead, it's all about what the reliable sources say. I'll keep a closer eye on Atheism about this issue, thanks. --Tryptofish (talk) 21:44, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Following up, there really isn't any serious effort to add that to that page. What I do see is that, a couple of days ago, someone editing from an IP that geolocates to the same nation as 46 does tried to post comments on the talk page about Hitler being an atheist, pretty much in the manner of Godwin's law, and other editors reverted the posts per WP:NOTFORUM. There's really nothing more to discuss, unless someone argues for changing what the page says. --Tryptofish (talk) 21:55, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

nutrition and....[edit]

what is your take on Nutrition and cognition and Nutritional neuroscience and the relation between them? Jytdog (talk) 00:58, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Hmm, as for the subject matter, it strikes me as a question of what happens when there is a serious nutritional deficiency. Obviously, there can be developmental problems with vitamin deficiencies, for example, but it's mostly pseudoscience when people talk about food that makes you smarter. I've noticed that recently there is some very mainstream interest in the microbiome and the nervous system. As for WP having two pages (neither is on my watchlist), I don't see much need to merge them, but maybe some need to reduce redundancy of content between them, with the former focusing on human health, and the latter on (mostly) animal studies of the developmental biology. I'm not sure if any of that is what you were wanting me to get at, so please feel free to follow up if I missed the point. --Tryptofish (talk) 01:26, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
thanks that is exactly the high level impression i was looking for! thanks. Jytdog (talk)
Good, you're welcome! --Tryptofish (talk) 23:46, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
