Hi, I saw your comment "the Bible says in numerous places that the Earth is a sphere".[1] The only examples I'm aware of are highly ambiguous at best, such as alluding to the planet's shape using a word that applies to discs just as much as bumpy oblate globes. Do you have a reference that explains in more detail the current scholarly estimates of what the various different writers of the bible thought about the earth (and its relationship to the sky and cosmos)?

Your comments from five years ago at Talk:3-2-1 Penguins![edit]

Hi. I am nominating template:source for discussion. When you used the template, did you mean {{citation needed}} or {{refimprove}}? If not, what template did you intend to use? --George Ho (talk) 04:09, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Wow - this was a long time ago. Considering I was talking to a keyboard jockey who seemed to enjoy blanking whole sections because they were unreferenced rather than just tagging them, I was probably referring to {{citation needed}}. Ckruschke (talk) 12:46, 9 December 2016 (UTC)Ckruschke

December 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Toddst1. I noticed that you made a change to an article, The Year Without a Santa Claus, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. As someone adding or restoring unsourced material, the WP:BURDEN is on you to provide adequate sources. Toddst1 (talk) 20:03, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

And you're above any WP:BURDEN? Toddst1 (talk) 18:20, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi. First - none of this stuff is mine. You can verify that through the history.
Second all due apologies, but rather than deleting the section, I flagged it as needing citation which is a perfectly acceptable option. A ref improve flag, in my mind, is much better than just wholesale deletion when there is material that's probably ok, but just isn't properly referenced. Since I didn't add any of this material myself, either those people who did will add the references or, after giving people ample opportunity to make the proper changes, we can delete the material in a few months.
I guess if you differ that strongly you can go ahead and delete it since you have obviously have seniority over me, but it appears to me that the material is sound and not simply fancruft.
Yours Ckruschke (talk) 18:25, 22 December 2016 (UTC)Ckruschke
It doesn't matter who originally added it. If you restore it, it's yours. Toddst1 (talk) 20:05, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
Sorry - disagree completely. However its a moot point - I deleted the section yesterday. Ckruschke (talk) 03:19, 24 December 2016 (UTC) Ckruschke
