You don't need to refer to him as a "quack" and "charlatan". His ideas may have not been accepted by the mainstream archaeological community or not based on actual facts, but there's no need to bring such language into the article. --Revolución talk 00:52, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

A date problem[edit]

There is a contradiction in this article:

"Ignatius Loyola Donnelly (November 3, 1831–January 1, 1901) was a U.S. Congressman ... Donnelly was the son of an Irish immigrant, Philip Carrol Donnelly who had settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On June 29, 1826 he married Catherine Gavin, a 2nd generation American of Irish extraction."

This means he married 4 years before he was born.

The "he" in your second quoted sentence refers to Philip C. Donnelly, Iggy's dad. It could be phrased more clearly, but it's not that hard to understand. Idontcareanymore (talk) 08:46, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Populist writer[edit]

In the lead sentence he is a populist writer but rest of the lead paragraph only itemizes work for which he is known that can only be called popular, not populist. One sentence about the populist is needed. And then the itemization should use the work popular in order to make the cute point. --P64 (talk) 22:09, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
