Merge with Glooskap[edit]

A merge has been suggested between these two articles. It makes sense to me. A quick check as to which was the more common name shows it to be Glooscap by a fairly wide margin. Here is a comparison of number of search results for each term:

  • Glooscap - 7,360
  • Glooskap - 945

Accordingly, I propose to move the text of the Glooskap article to this one and make Glooskap a redirect. Comments? Sunray 17:57, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Merge completed. Sunray 08:19, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Henry Sinclair[edit]

I read about this connection in a book about the Knights Templar, but for the life of me I cannot remember what it was called. If anyone else is familiar with it, please let me know so I can properly cite my addition.--Caliga10 15:35, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

A book about the Knights Templar could be fictional. We need a reliable source in order to refer to this on this in the Glooscap article. However, since there is no reliable historical or archeological record of Sinclair's travels, it is unlikely that you will find one. Finding one would be a major breakthrough in the annals of European exploration of North America! Sunray 14:39, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
You might be interested in this tidbit. Now, Knight and Lomas aren't the most widely agreed upon authors, and they've certainly got their own bias and agenda with their ties to Freemasonry, but they're very academic in their writing and research. So, take this as you will:
"[The Reverend Janet Dyer] continued her helpful commentary by referring to the documented evidence that Prince Henry Sinclair, the first St Clair Jarl (Earl) of the Orkneys had, thanks to Templar money, commissioned a fleet of twelve ships for a voyage to the 'New World'. The fleet under Antonio Zeno landed in Nova Scotia and explored the eastern seaboard of what is now the United States of America prior to 1400. The date is certain because Henry Sinclair was murdered upon his return in that year."
_The Hiram Key_, Knight and Lomas, p. 302.

You most likely read Frederick Pohl's book, "Prince Henry Sinclair: His Expedition to the New World in 1398." I was able to write a history essay regarding his voyage by stating in the first paragraph "this is a contested fact." Andrew647 18:22, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
This is a bit late to the game, but the book you're referring to is "Knights Templar In The New World" by William Mann. I've read the book, but couldn't really see Mann's resoning to assume that Glooscap was actually Sinclair, despite some parallels drawn between the two. While I'm an advocate of research into alternate views on history (such as Sinclair's pre-Columbian voyage to and potential settlement in North America), I don't think there's enough evidence to properly draw a link between Glooscap and Sinclair.

Clean-up[edit]

Someone added a "Clean-up" tag to the article but neglected to state what was required. So I will wade in. The article is a hodge-podge of legends, but no sources are cited. Perhaps we could find some sources. Sunray 00:47, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

"Creation myth"[edit]

Since there are thousands of gods, many in Wikipedia, for consistency if one of them is stated as being due to a creation myth they should all be. Including the currently popular ones. The less divisive approach would be to remove the phrase from god descriptions throughout Wikipedia. NStahl (talk) 12:19, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
