I couldn't find the Bible reference for this statement: "The Bible describes the devil as the most beautiful angel (in his early days)." My best guess is Isaiah 14:12, but that seems to be about power, not beauty. And anyway, equating Lucifer with the devil is at best a Point Of View presented as fact, a no-no according to Wikipedia: Neutral point of view) - see Lucifer and the Bible commentaries Wikipedia provides at Biblical exegesis.

Please make your arguments for the changes you've made at talk:evolution and reach consensus there before making them. Dunc| 22:19, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

Your recent edit on the same article was not only a major NPOV violation but outright false. Please keep your anti-evolution bias off the article, as it has already gone to great lengths to be objective. DreamGuy 01:41, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

It was not false at all. I have a very reasonable doubt of evolution. I am not bias. And please comment back and let me know what part of it you believe to be false. And let us not argue about our different beliefs, but reason about them so that we may come to one conclusion that my statement is true or that it is false. JNeal 01:58, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Your quote may be accurate, but the statement about there being no transitional forms is false. If you want to make substantial changes to the article, please discuss the changes on the talk page. Guettarda 02:28, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
And the quote (at least the version I saw, dunno if he tried again later) was inaccurate. Claims of not being "bias" don't make sense when you come up with this sort of nonsense. DreamGuy 05:55, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

JNeal, there have been *many* transitional fossils found. I'm hoping that you just didn't know. Check this link for further information. Varith 14:47, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

I will have to check that site out and thank you very much Varith. JNeal 14:50, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Also: On the "Darwin admitted" -- most of the people who say that Darwin admitted something are selectively quoting. Darwin's writing style was to acknowledge every possible objection to his theory, to say that they are indeed important and could be devastating, but that in the end he finds they can be dealt with in such-and-such a way. For example he famously said that it was "absurd" to imagine that something as complicated as the eye could evolve, which is often quoted out of context by intellectually dishonest people trying to say that even Darwin didn't believe in evolution. This is of course false on the face of it, but it becomes even more obviously dishonest when the next line Darwin says is about how evolution is powerful enough for even this apparent absurdity. Just a little note -- be wary of anti-Darwinians who quote Darwin saying that his theory doesn't work, because they are rarely being honest about their quotation and this is usually easily verifiable. --Fastfission 16:59, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your comment, Fastfission. I'm sure some people would do such horribly deceitful things such as what you described; but the man I quoted, Grant Jeffrey, is not this type of person. He is a Christian (I am too): he knows that all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed) will spend eternity in Hell. Furthermore, I don't see any reason that would cause him to do such a thing. JNeal 00:06, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

David Hartwig[edit]

A tag has been placed on David Hartwig, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable (see the guidelines for notability here). If you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please write {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself.

Please read the criteria for speedy deletion (specifically, articles #7) and our general biography criteria. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Fan-1967 03:17, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

It's great that Wikipedia has people like you who look around Wikipedia and make sure everything is good, and I don't mean to cause any trouble or inconvenience for you or any other person; but, I think David Hartwig and his "famous" dog Skidboot are notable enough for Wikipedia. They have been on Oprah, Leno, Letterman, Pet Star, several news stories, etc. Jay Leno said, "Skidboot is the smartest dog I've ever seen." They have done a number of other performances as well. A video about Skidboot currently ranks number nine on Google Video. [1] I was about to contest the speedy deletion tagging, but by the time I clicked on "edit", the page was gone.

Speedy deletion nomination of Carman: The Champion[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Carman: The Champion requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.
