Time for a break[edit]

Contending with the stupidity is bringing me down. Time to take a break. Editor2020 (talk) 12:27, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

I hope that you take a well deserved break, then that you eventually come back. Thank you for your precious contributions, —PaleoNeonate – 12:49, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
I second the wishes and the thanks by Paleo above. Hope to see you back soon, well refreshed and full of editing energy again. Thank you! warshy (¥¥) 15:21, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Pauline epistles[edit]

Hi, in the Pauline epistles article you removed the sentence "although it's possible that Paul first collected his letters for publication himself" as unsourced. The source for this is Trobisch in the work cited at the end of the paragraph. This is from the article Marcionism#Recent scholarship:

David Trobisch, a New Testament scholar and curator of The Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., argues that comparison of the oldest manuscripts of Paul’s letters show evidence that several epistles had been previously assembled as an anthology and published separate from the New Testament, and this anthology as a whole was then incorporated into the New Testament. Trobisch further argues for Paul as the assembler of his own letters for publication.<ref>{{cite book |last1=Trobisch |first1=David |title=Paul’s Letter Collection |year=2001 |publisher=Quiet Water Publications |isbn=978-0-96639667-6}}</ref>

Could the sentence be re-instated? Perhaps reworded to make it clearer that Trobisch is the source. - thanks - Epinoia (talk) 01:54, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

I have reverted. Editor2020 (talk) 01:56, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
- thank you. Although I was concerned that the idea was not accepted by the majority of scholars and could be considered WP:FRINGE - cheers - Epinoia (talk) 02:07, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
No, I just couldn't tell it was covered by the later source. Editor2020 (talk) 02:10, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Why you convert?[edit]

Editor2020 why you connvert Meetei to Meitei. They have different meanings .Likewise Manipuri and Meitei. Awangba Mangang (talk) 05:17, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

Meetei redirects to Meitei people. Please revert me if I changed incorrectly. Editor2020 (talk) 02:12, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Catholic Church and Pandeism[edit]

You seem to know what’s what, and recently involved in Deism. An anon is complaining of Deism content being in Catholic Church and Pandeism. A second proposes expanding the page to one on “Catholic Church and Deism.” Discussion is at talk. What would you do? If you think it should be moved and restructured, propose it and I won’t oppose. Trust your judgement. Hyperbolick (talk) 01:49, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

I'm flattered by your trust in me, but I'm no expert in either Pandeism or Catholicism. I would support a separate Catholic Church and Deism article, as I think that there is a significant difference in the concepts of Deism and Pandeism. Editor2020 (talk) 17:40, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
Catholic Church and Deism already exists as a redirect to Catholic Church and Pandeism, so we need to review the content and history. A restoration of the article may be called for. Editor2020 (talk) 17:40, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
Interesting. Hyperbolick (talk) 00:58, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
Ah, I see that you have been there already. Editor2020 (talk) 17:44, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

───────────────────────── I've had a chance to look at the articles now. Since there is no previous article at the redirect Catholic Church and Deism, and there doesn't seem to be much information at Catholic Church and Pandeism that can be moved to the redirect, I don't see how an article can be written, so I'd leave it as is. If you think you can write a well referenced article, go for it. Editor2020 (talk) 01:47, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Appreciate your taking the time. Hyperbolick (talk) 19:56, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Pauline Christianity[edit]

Glad you appreciate this. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 04:15, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

You've improved that article tremendously. Editor2020 (talk) 07:33, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

History of Israel[edit]

Hi Editor2020! I hope you're having a good day and that life is treating you well. :-) I just wanted to let you know that I've moved History of the Land of Israel back to its original title, History of Israel. We typically want to hold discussions and get input and consensus before we move pages like this. It's especially necessary given the fact that this article falls under a topic where discretionary sanctions are authorized by the Arbitration Committee (see this page for details). We need to be careful with taking actions unilaterally such as this, and we then need to be extra careful on top of that due to the ArbCom remedies in place. No worries, and no harm done; it was simple and easy to move back and nobody is going to come after you about it. ;-) I just wanted to take the time and message you about this so that you're aware and can keep this in mind when considering making page moves in the future. When in doubt, Wikipedia:Requested moves is the right answer. ;-) If you have any questions, concerns, or wish to discuss this with me further, please don't hesitate to let me know (just ping me in your response here), and I'll be happy to do so. :-) Thanks for listening to my message, and I wish you happy editing. :-) Cheers - ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 09:26, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

It was a BOLD edit, sorry if you feel it did not improve the article. Thanks for your thoughtful message. Editor2020 (talk) 13:07, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

RE: Religious male circumcision[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be repeatedly reverting or undoing other editors' contributions at Religious male circumcision. Although this may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is known as "edit warring" and is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, as it often creates animosity between editors. Instead of reverting, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing Wikipedia. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, and violating the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you.

1) Edits to the page offered additional clarity to the significance of circumcision among Abrahamic religions. Previously, the Christian position was equivocated with that of Jewish and Muslims.

2) Your justification "Blatant non-neutral Christian POV" is unjustified. In fact, the edits did not reflect in any way, positively or negatively with respect to the other religions.

3) As a compromise, I will REVIEW and reconsider my edits, however; further stymieing will be reported unless you offer a thoughtful and researched response.

4) You have a history of hostile edits and this damages your credibility.

Respectfully, Dayton C.

Hotpass105 (talk)hotpass105

You added the new material and I deleted it. Now we are supposed to discuss it per WP:BRD. If you wish to discuss why your version is better, please do so at the article's talk page. Editor2020 (talk) 17:41, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Eckankar rollback[edit]

Please explain this edit. If you follow the source reference link, my edit was correct. --LilHelpa (talk) 20:14, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, that was a mistake. Editor2020 (talk) 20:15, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Avestan daeva and Persian div[edit]

They both mean demon. Why did you revert it? The semantic shift is universal among Iranian languages. Kwékwlos (talk) 05:16, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

You need a reference. Editor2020 (talk) 11:01, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

ThomasJamesGodfrey rollback[edit]

Please explain this edit in more detail. You reverted a number of my edits, all rolled into one to avoid generating excessive revisions, each one of which must involve overhead that costs Wikipedia something. Your terse edit summary ("That's what the reference say, which is what we follow") paints all of those edits with a broad brush, and even the little you said is debatable. Your use of Twinkle suggests that you imagine my edits amounted to vandalism. They certainly did not. I am fully committed to following Wikipedia policies. Let’s talk this over before I try again. My goal is to identify legitimate issues, correct any real problem with my earlier attempt, and boldly improve the Book of Joshua article.

Let’s start with the first word in your summary (“That’s”). Too vague. We cannot evaluate your terse claim in detail until we both know what you are talking about.

I assume you questioned one of the places where I wanted to avoid presenting as fact what is still only scholarly speculation about ancient history. Once we have identified a specific statement of concern, you may be able to point me to the place where the source actually positions it as a fact, not as expert speculation about what actually happened. Obviously, if the source does not overreach, Wikipedia has no business promoting what is actually speculation to the status of a fact, thereby confusing readers.

Let’s move on to consider the rest of your summary (“... which is what we follow”). Suppose the source does overreach and presents as a fact what is actually only expert speculation. Is Wikipedia really obligated to endorse this? If so, please point me to the corresponding policy statement that covers this idea. I am a relatively new editor, so I may well have missed it. Intuitively, in a case like this, I think our article should clearly attribute the claim to the proper source authority (for example, “Jerome F. D. Creach claimed that ...”), shifting responsibility for its accuracy from Wikipedia to where it belongs.

Please help me develop edits, similar to the ones I made yesterday, that will be acceptable and not be legitimately reverted. I assume that you have the right attitude about this and are willing to extend to me the same benefit of the doubt. ThomasJamesGodfrey (talk) 11:04, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

@Editor2020: Should we discuss this here or over on the article's talk page? It's your call. ThomasJamesGodfrey (talk) 12:32, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
I've already asked this editor to use the talk page. He's adding Gerald Aardsma[1] to articles. So far as I can see Aardma's idea about radiocarbon dating are not taken seriously in the scientific community. Doug Weller talk 13:10, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
You added/changed the article. I objected to it. Now per WP:BRD we discuss it on the article's Talk page until the interested editors of the article reach WP:CONSENSUS. Editor2020 (talk) 16:16, 8 May 2019 (UTC)


This user has been reported for malicious changes. TamusJRoyce (talk) 04:12, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

User:RHaworth, do you mind if I redirect Dispensationalist theology to Dispensationalism? There doesn't seem to be much content sourced to reliable sources at Dispensationalist theology. I placed a comment there about a merger there on 14 April 2018 but have received no response. Editor2020 (talk) 01:53, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
