Section on Dawkins' book[edit]

I changed a couple of things, and lost the page reference because it changes from publication to publication (duh). The previous wikipedian wrote that it was on page 117, but the quote is on page 142 on my paperback edition. The quote is from the chapter "Why there almost certainly is no God", about two pages into "National selection as a consiousness-raiser" just after the first block-quote from the Salmon of Doubt. Matt Tait.


I came in here via the category Pages with broken reference names and in tracking down the problem found that the first named citation was in the 'Influences' section of the Writer InfoBox. I've fixed that but I noticed Influences/Influenced in the Infobox weren't displaying and found that it was removed from the template on 4 Aug 2013[1] after a discussion on the Template Talk page.[2] Given that it was redundant I removed those as well but there was some info it it that may be useful elsewhere in the article. Influences:

Towel day[edit]

I don't think this is sufficiently important to be mentioned in the article, or to have its own article. The Telegraph article is mostly based on Tweets and scarcely establishes its notability. What do others think? John (talk) 17:59, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
