Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited South England flood of February 1287, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Broomhill (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.

Big Bang[edit]

Hi! Per my comment on Talk:Big bang, I am answering the question here.

I'll first need to ask you to clarify the question - there are a lot of possibilities between "nothing to say" and "tells us how," i.e. your two positions are opposite extremes on a scale, rather than there being a "distinction." I would agree that as we go back in time we generally know less. I am not sure that there's any time where it would be accurate to say we know "nothing" - for example, we can be quite confident that at no point at or after t=0 did the universe look like what it does today (galaxies, stars, humans...) The exact moment of t=0 (the "origin," under some meanings of the word) is a special case, but I don't think it's completely clear that it is meaningful to even use the term "exact moment" as that may have been the beginning of time itself. I look forward to your response - although keep in mind that while I have a decent knowledge of physics I am not a physicist myself, so if you want a detailed discussion I recommend asking elsewhere, such as WikiProject Physics.

Speedy deletion nomination of Scholarly thesauri[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Scholarly thesauri requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about something invented/coined/discovered by the article's creator or someone they know personally, and 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.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. JMHamo (talk) 14:57, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
