Sources for Caelestius[edit]

Hello, good work on Caelestius, and thanks for the contribution. However, you forgot to add any references to the article. Keeping Wikipedia accurate and verifiable is very important, and there is currently a push to encourage editors to cite the sources they used when adding content. What websites, books, or other places did you learn the information that you added to Caelestius? Would it be possible for you to mention them in the article? Thank you very much. - SimonP 05:15, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Caelestius Updated[edit]

Hi! Fresh from the update on Pelagius, I tackled the article on Caelestius tonight. The note said it lacked context, so I fleshed it out and added religious context, taking care to remember that non-Christians (and non-theologians!) were going to read this article. Let me know what you think! Nhprman 05:11, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Gospel of Barnabas[edit]

I have added a few chapter references to your suggested bullets on anachronisms - and corrected what I took to be imprecisions and errors. I amnot sure that this material adds a great deal though, as much is already found in the links to Islamic and Christian polemical sites. Demonstrating that the GOB contains anachronisms is in no way a refutation of the thesis of some Muslim commentators that it ought to be preferred to the canonical Gospels. It is axiomatic in Islam that all Christian Gospels are corrupt, except where they conform to the Qur'an. Hence the GOB is not claimed to be free from later corruption, just less corrupt than the canonical gospels. TomHennell 14th Jan 2006

Blu-ray Disc[edit]

Just wanted to ask, the outdated info you removed (at least with Sony releasing Blu-ray recorders in Japan) did happen, didn't it? I mean, I thought they had some expensive set-top Blu-ray recorder they released in Japan that used caddies for the media (and would actually be incompatible with the final Blu-ray disc format we'll see (hopefully) this year; but it's still interesting from an historical perspective). I believe you were correct to remove the other info about LG Electronics though. Feel free to respond here or on my talk page BTW. —Locke Coletc 01:33, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment. I am ready to talk. If you would like to revert some of my edits before discussing them, that's fine. I am ready to talk. Please let me know what passages do you disagree most. I need to go somewhere now, but will be back in an hour. thx. --Aminz 06:05, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Deletion of Bible as Myth[edit]

I saw your objection to the deletion on Tawker's page - You may want to review these articles: Higher criticism, Textual criticism, Criticism of the Bible (has the non-NPOV conforming tag, or Biblical studies as a starting point - wikipedia adequately covers scholarly discussion of the bible. Trödel 14:24, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Okay, thanks a lot! --JBJ 18:37, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Bible verses[edit]

There was an acrimonious debate about the inclusion of individual Bible passages which resulted in a consensus that only those passages which are independently notable should have separate articles. If there is a passage which is independently notable (be it a chapter, a couple of verses or half a book), please do ensure that you provide the context for its independent notability. An article for the sake of having one on each chapter in a given book is likely to cause problems. Just zis Guy you know? 20:18, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Global Reserve Bank Deleted..:-([edit]


Thanks for your support in this voting... somehow it was deleted and I dont understand how it could be with so many Keep votes and so pore arguments for delete?? Do you? --Swedenborg 19:44, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Deletion decisions are not strictly democratic, they are based on consensus. I didn't follow the discussion very closely, but the consensus does seem to be delete - simply bc many people gave detailed reasons for deleting and only you gave detailed reassons not to. (Wikipedia will always favor the input of many over the input of an individual, even if the individual is more correct.) Rather than contesting this deletion, take the time to improve the article in the way others criticized, including generally lengthening it. Or, I'd advise, choose another area to contribute. --Ephilei 07:38, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
Hi again, how is everything? I have been busy and my Wiki work have been low.. Still interested to support you in any questing and votings if needed :-) Have given up on Global Reserve Bank article for now but I realy, realy belive that a link from (that has developed to a good one) is at least minimum level for GRB presens on Wikipedia.

List of critics[edit]

I simply renamed the group.--CltFn 21:07, 18 June 2006 (UTC)


Hi, sure I'd be interested in helping draft a proposal. How bout we write it here: Wikipedia:Non-notability. I think the essay should include reasons such as people being deturred from wikipedia - I've heard a lot of people are being frustrated into leaving - a couple of the people i've worked with have said they were leaving because of an inhospitable environment.

However, I think this shouldn't be a 100% inclusionist policy for all non-notable articles. If possible, it would be very significant to be able to draw a clear line as to how to differentiate between articles that violoate *other* policies when they are "non-notable". We need to emphasize that non-notable articles in many cases violate official policy, and that *those policies* should be used as grounds for deletion or revision, rather than notability. We should also include quotes from Jim Wales, and other people that actually work at the foundation to support the proposal.

Any other ideas? Fresheneesz 04:53, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Why not using EI ?? --Aminz 04:27, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Just because most people won't recognize what it stands for until visiting the link. If you you want to use EI, explain what it means first. Eg, "The Encyclopedia of Islam (E.I.) says . . . . E.I. also says . . ." --Ephilei 04:39, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

I have done this in the first sentence of this section. --Aminz 04:40, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
That's fine!--Ephilei 04:45, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Islamic view on Jesus death[edit]

Thanks for reminding me. I actually couldn't grasp the flow of information but now, with my contribution as well in the section, it makes more sense. I'll try not to repeat this mistake. --SaadSaleem 05:00, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

It is very simple. Scholars like Ghamidi and Islahi interpreted the whole event through Quran. They believe that God never allows His Messengers to be dishonored by their enemies, even their dead bodies. Swoon hypothysis is not accepted by any big scholar to my knowledge. Swoon hypothesis is against Qur'an because Qur'an explicitly says that someone else was killed instead of Jesus. So I believe this is very important to mention in the article that Muslims have no two opinions about Jesus' rescue as Qur'an is very clear about that. The only debate is on "Jesus' return", which is subject to whether he was ascended alive or dead (death by natural causes and not by torture by his enemies). Once you are satisfied, I'll return the changes. --SaadSaleem 23:45, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
I added the verse from Qur'an to tell that Qur'an claims that there was God's wisdom behind deceiving the enemies, which we may or may not understand. --SaadSaleem 03:16, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks! If I have anything else to say, I'll post on the Talk page. --Ephilei 08:00, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

While Surah 4.157-158 are the most often quoted verses and appear to deny his death, several other verses appear to affirm his death. Some scholars like Javed Ahmed Ghamidi and Amin Ahsan Islahi believe that Jesus did indeed die. in the article suggests that opinion of Ghamidi and Islahi are contradictory to verse 4.157-158, which is actually wrong. As these verses only say that Jesus was saved from his enemies and then raised, with which these scholars agree. The real dispute is on the translation of [Quran 3:55], which then definitely contradicts with many hadith related to Jesus second coming. I think, we need to change the tone of the article a little bit to make it compatible with scholars' writings. SaadSaleem 11:21, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Might be interested[edit]


We are working on the Manual of Style for "Sources" on Islam related articles in wikipedia here[1]

Your comments there would be appreciated. --Aminz 05:24, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Your welcome.

BTW, re "This has caused some Non-Muslims to believe Jesus was more righteous than other prophets, including Muhammad."; who is more righteous before God, one who sins but then turns back and repents, or one who doesn't sin in the first place ;) You know which parable of Jesus I am talking about... --Aminz 05:40, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I was talking about the same story and similar ones actually. But the story says: "I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent."--Aminz 05:53, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Domestic behavior in Islam[edit]

You may find this interesting.

It is written by Azizah Y. al-Hibri. It is a peer reviewed journal paper and qualifies as WP:RS. It is published here: Al-Hibri, Azizah Y. (2003). "An Islamic Perspective on Domestic Violence". 27 Fordham International Law Journal 195.

Could you please help protect this article from unfair deletionists?[edit]

Hi Ephilei! I found you through Association of Inclusionist Wikipedians. I was hoping if you'd mind lending me a helping hand with International Institute of Management article . On August 10 an unknown person (no signature) marked it for deletion. Then —Ben FrantzDale conducted a good faith google search for “international institute of management” and it did not return a top result. – Which led him to support the deletion marking. Two other users followed saying that the website was not notable and the institute claims non-verifiable international connections. However, I have conducted a detailed research on IIM website, including IIM research section, press-releases, events and photos, as well as other independent websites and provided evidence of notability and verifiable references. However, my concern is that I’m only one vote against 4 vote and I do not know if any of them will change their mind (human nature!). Therefore, I kindly ask you to verify the links provided in the and help verify the notability. I’m not asking for anything less than an ethical vote. I’m willing to return the favor and review a similar

  • Comment Thanks for your help with the article!.

By supporting this article, you re-established my trust in Wiki and assured me that few deletionists cannot control it. You also won me as an active contributor to Wiki. Let me know how I can help :)

  • Question What happens next? Does your strong keep vote save the article? Do we need more votes? Who is the final decision maker to keep it or not? and do the tags on the top gets removed and when? Thank you for educating me and let me know if I can return the favor.
  • Question

Nickee has created a red banner and negative remarks about the seeking the support of inclusionists. She is creating bad faith. what can we do? Any advice?

As to Ibn Khatir: "you can use the Google cache to access that website. But I think you need to know the full url first; perhaps if you don't, you can guess at what the url should be based on other examples and plug it into Google search and see if it finds a cache link."

As to Tabari: Please ask User:Zora. She should know.

Edit on your talk page[edit]

This was an admin rollback of an internal spam message that was being sent to every user in Category:Inclusionist Wikipedians.

Beloved Disciple[edit]

It means that the claim that Jesus' otherwise unknown son is really the Beloved Disciple is nonsense, and doesn't need to receive undue weight in its own section. If it truly is a notable theory, then more credible analysts than Simcha Jacobiovici need to be cited. And if it must be included, it certainly doesn't need its own section, simply because it was suggested in one Discovery Channel documentary.--Cúchullain t/c 00:40, 6 March 2007 (UTC)


If you continue to spam wikipedia, as you did to the entry of the Gospel of John, you may be banned from editing wikipedia. Please exercise caution. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hurtstotalktoyou (talkcontribs) 14:58, 6 March 2007 (UTC).

After just a little research, it appears you're just a trouble making with a lot of bias. Some have called you a troll. Perhaps that's why all your edit page comments are complaints from others and you try to hide them: See user talk:Hurtstotalktoyou. The edits weren't spam - they were a long thought overhaul of that section. Do you know what spam is? Spam promotes a product, service, person, etc and I obviously promoted nothing except a better article. Further, reverting such major information is not a minor edit. I fear you did so to help cover your tracks to other editors watching the page. --Ephilei 19:24, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
Please do not de-revert your edits to the Gospel of John. They will be reverted or otherwise corrected as soon as noticed.--Hurtstotalktoyou 20:15, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Subpage misspelled[edit]

This is just a note that the POV subpage you created is misspelled, thus making it a subpage of a non-existant user rather than your own userpage. Also you misspelled "sporadically" on your userpage. Best wishes. --Blainster 21:28, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

To be more specific, "User:Ephileli/POV" has the username ending "eli", while the username of these pages ends "lei", so the subpage you created has no parent (there is no User:Ephileli). And yes, as it happens I read Siddartha in the original German for a class in my student days years ago. It is an impressive book. --Blainster 18:09, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Truemyth template[edit]

We're discussing it here this week: [3]Goldenrowley 21:57, 12 June 2007 (UTC)


Hi Ephilei, please note I redirected your template "truemyth" to "myth box" today... I like the idea but after the discusson at WP Mythology there was not a consensus, and it for months has said its not finished in its text. The place to put unfinished ideas is in your sand boxes where you may store them indefinitely. I suggest you put it there now or in "mythology" archives if you like. I hope you agree.

Old Irving Park[edit]

Dear Ephilei,

Old Irving is a neighborhood within the Irving Park Community area of Chicago. The article that was originally under Old Irving Park wrote about the history and development of the whole Irving Park community area, and not just 'Old Irving' (I personally suspect that the original poster had simply taken it off of the Old Irving Park Historical Association website). Since Wikipedia articles are written on a volunteer basis, the result is that there are often duplicate articles or ones that are misleading, as in this case. I hope that this clears up the issue--Orestek 03:30, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

John merge[edit]

I think you should just write the article you have in mind. I wouldn't call it a merge. That just gets people scared that their articles are going to be destroyed. Just write an article explaining all the points of view about who John was and don't worry too much about merging just yet. People will like it, and then you can go from there.

Birds of Prey[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Birds of Prey (TV series), but we cannot accept original research. Original research also encompasses novel, unpublished syntheses of previously published material. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your information. Thank you.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 04:32, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

No, I did read it...all three times. It's still original research. I think you need to read WP:NOR, because you don't seem to fully understand what original research is. You're insinuating that there is a significance between two shows having the same episode title. By doing such, you are creating original research. If you are not saying there is a significance there, then what you are adding is irrelevant and should be removed. Lastly, you don't include any type of observation (sourced or unsourced) in a plot summary. So, regardless the statement doesn't belong in the plot section and will always be removed, and unless some reliable source discusses the significance of the show using a title used by the animated series, then it will be removed from anywhere else in the article.
