Tags[edit]

Dispute that one needs to "wait for" someone to remove a tag per edit history. --Firefly322 (talk) 18:58, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you are saying. OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 20:30, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned[edit]

This article has no incoming links (apart from the dab). Needs fixing. We can discus possible additions here, such as a link from the Student Christian Movement? Is there a list of presidents, or is he notable for some other connection? There is a "Some famous members of WSCF", but actually that article is in need of a huge clean up.

Quotes[edit]

Half the verbiage of the article are quotes. That's not very encyclopedic. If not fixed, let's delete this article. OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 17:37, 12 November 2008 (UTC)


Comments and activity[edit]

To avoid an edit war, need to point out that this action ([1]) goes against basic WP:5P priniciples of wikipedia. Just because one thinks that Religion and Science articles need go beyond wikipeda standards (or that one dislikes the information and worldview expressed in them) does justify taking this sort of reversion action.

Just FYI: Evolutionary theory and the political left is something that meets WP:5P: it has few references and similarly few complaints. Suggest the cesation of spilling ink on this article and adopt a more normal view of wikipedia standards.

Wiki-laywering every other article I contribute to in Religion and Science: from The Christian Virtuoso to Ian Barbour and now to this one is getting tiresome.--Firefly322 (talk) 18:36, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Which of the "five pillars" of WP:5P does my edit violate? Be specific. I do not intend wasting time over further vague and ill-founded accusations from you. HrafnTalkStalk(P) 18:49, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

The problem with the reverted section was that the majority of it is cited to a source that makes no explicit mention of Foster's book, but merely cites it. It is thus in violation of WP:V (part of the first 'pillar'). HrafnTalkStalk(P) 19:04, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Googlebooks[edit]

Some of this books are previews so we can't see always same pages. Is this problem in quotations?--Vojvodae please be free to write :) 21:05, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
