Hello Jobas,

Disambiguation link notification for July 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Christian thinkers in science, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John Eccles (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Interested to put in your input?[edit]

Hi Jobas, I see you have been busy with the Noble Prizes stuff. Would you like to join in on the discussion on one source that is being discussed? Your input would be appreciated at RSN.Mayan1990 (talk) 18:37, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Appreciate it Jobas. Since the other refs are still in the wiki articles and should cover similar points for Jews, Christians, etc we should probably leave the editors in RSN to do as they wish and not stir up more than is already going on. It can get messy and the points are preserved in the articles as is. I have moved on because of it.Mayan1990 (talk) 11:54, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Great. I saw you made some excellent points on the RSN. But yeah, lets just move on. I agree with you that if it said 65% were atheists or agnostics, they would not hesitate to put it on there and certainly would not be making much of a fuss about it.Mayan1990 (talk) 12:05, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Correct. I agree with you 100%..Mayan1990 (talk) 12:05, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Islam by country[edit]

Why did you revert my edit? I removed doubtful sources and replaced them by the most reliable source you can think of (Pew Research Center).

One of the sources was a report on biotechnology ( Why should that be cited in an article about Islam? Yes, it includes one question about belief, but this is clearly not the main topic of the survey. 2% of the respondents said that they considered themselves Muslims, and so someone must have done the calculation that 2% out of 80 million of inhabitants of Germany is 1.6 million. By the way, the percentage numbers were rounded - thus, 2% could mean 1.5 or 2.4%. This is poor data.

Another source gives the number of Muslims as 2.1 million ( However, the authors specifically mention that this number only comprises the Muslims who express their belief in surveys. This may be of interest in an article about Islam in Germany, but not in this context, since it would make the table inconsistent. I am sure the numbers given for other countries were not retrieved by specifically asking whether these people actually believed in Islam.

REMID gives the number as 4 million (

But why not stick to the data of the Pew Research Center, as advertised in the article ( This would be the most consistent way of presenting the table.

On the recent conversation[edit]

"Many of these problems stem from the fact that scientific atheism was an ideology imposed on a population from official channels. Communists did not attempt to engage the hearts and minds of would-be converts but expected individuals to simply bend to patently superficial beliefs. In fact, communists forbid any active discussion concerning the weaknesses of scientific atheism even in the attempt to improve them." [1] Associate Professor Paul Froese [2]

And also the goal of the League was atheist conversation. [3] LoveMonkey (talk) 15:56, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Tendentious Editing[edit]

I am becoming increasingly concerned by what appears to be a pattern of agenda driven editing on the part of Xenophrenic. I recall your recent and unsuccessful appeal to the 3RR noticeboard. When I first read your OP statement I thought there were so many issues being raised that it belonged more properly at ANI. If you choose to raise the issue again, I would suggest ANI as the best forum. Best regards... -Ad Orientem (talk) 15:28, 20 July 2016 (UTC)


Hi Jobas. Hope you are doing well. There is relevant discussion on a recent article you edited ( forced conversion ). You are welcome to join and give your input on it since it does involve a few of your edits there.Mayan1990 (talk) 19:27, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
