Remove original research template from June 2012?[edit]

I think it may be time to remove the original research template? Thoughts?

Directed evolution (transhumanism)[edit]

A new article (Directed evolution (transhumanism)) has been generated but is a bit of a stub. It would be useful if it could be improved (particularly references) or otherwise merged into another article. T. Shafee (Evo&Evo) (talk) 11:17, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Transhumanist_politics[edit]

Can you please help to improve the article Transhumanist_politics. About half of the content in the article has been deleted by two editors, so it would be helpful to have more eyes looking at the article. Thank you. Waters.Justin (talk) 13:17, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

This is mostly to get something Wikipedia-worthy down about the Transhumanist Party, which failed AFD as a separate article once. There's a draft replacement, but it's been rejected once already. Need WP:RS to talk about a political party. Also noted at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Transhumanism#Transhumanist_politics_and_Transhumanist_Party - David Gerard (talk) 17:42, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 5 external links on Transhumanism. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

N Archived sources still need to be checked

Debate section[edit]

The debate section is excessively large compared to the rest of the article. Also it doesn't tell us about any debate but simply a lot about people and ideas criticizing transhumanism. Furthermore the subsections of this section contain words such as threat, spectre and trivialization which are clearly POV. I hope I can make some time to clean this up. Any help would be greatly appreciated since I'm writing my thesis! AlwaysUnite (talk) 20:49, 13 September 2015 (UTC)

+1 I made a minor edit, and am looking at working on this, but frankly I think the best route would be a full rewrite. Although, come to think of it, perhaps working it into a "Criticisms of Transhumanism" (or something similar; rather than debate) section would be a decent solution.

I didn't see it was that huge, only looked at the overall portion. Perhaps this is something that could be a separate article that's referenced here with a general overview of the debate. UniversityofPi (talk) 19:46, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

"Criticisms of" would be a step back - such sections should be avoided. I would like to see the topics become headings in their own right and in each one both sides of the issue can be examined. Itsmejudith (talk) 20:12, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Well, what they can't make up for in quality, they make up for in quantity. ;) 46.239.250.137 (talk) 18:03, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Dan Agin in Ethics section[edit]

His name has [who?] after it. A web search has the publishers Macmillan and Huffington Post (http://us.macmillan.com/author/danagin, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dan-agin/ describing him as a professor of genetics at the University of Chicago, but searching their website comes up empty (http://www.uchicago.edu/search/results/?GSAq=dan+agin), as does Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/public/Dan-Agin) and LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/dir/Dan/Agin). Dealing with this is beyond my skills. Tagus 18:12, 27 December 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tagus (talkcontribs)
