re:Biblical inerrancy[edit]

It was a sloppy revert on my behalf. I apologize for that, and I have corrected the two things you pointed out. The reason for my revert was to remove the two sentences which did not have sources, and which seemed to me to be original research. You added commentary which worked to contradict a cited source, without supplying another comparable source. It seemed like you were saying you knew better than what our sources said. You can make a case on the talk page that the source is poor and we shouldn't cite it at all (and remove the content) or you can find another source and we can show both sides. But we can't take side, nor add unsourced commentary which acts to discredit a cited source. I hope you understand. Similarly, biblical interpretations also need to be backed up by sources. Sorry again for the sloppy revert, and in the future try to make sure all your contributions are backed by reliable, verifiable sources. -Andrew c [talk] 22:36, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Logical quotation marks[edit]

Hi Nikil44, I've reverted one of your edits to Prayer where you changed the position of quotation marks relative to other punctuation marks. Please note that the Wikipedia Manual of Style specifies that logical quotation marks should be used:

"On Wikipedia, place all punctuation marks inside the quotation marks if they are part of the quoted material and outside if they are not."

(Note that the preceding sentence was quoted in full, so in this case the punctuation mark does go inside the quotation marks.) Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 13:37, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. I did not look at the Manual of Style but thought to make it consistent because the American usage of quotes was preferred in that article. I will take care of it from now on. Nikil44 (talk) 03:50, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
