I see you're work, will join soon
QuadFather, I'm going to review your work up to this point tomorrow and give you as much of my help, thoughts, and so-forth then. -- Brooks Lindsay 13:48, 23 January 2008 (CST)
- Use the background section for this, and make heavy use of linking out to Wikipedia pages when they are strong resources for terminology. -- Brooks Lindsay 12:35, 21 January 2008 (CST)
What you're proposing would be great. I will help with the referencing, or try to get someone else to help. Yes, use the summary section to give a short description of your edits. -- Brooks Lindsay 15:05, 18 January 2008 (CST)
QuadFather, my first reaction is that you have done a great job. Thank you. I will look through your work further and provide additional comments, and will help along your work with any due changes I observe. -- Brooks Lindsay 13:46, 18 January 2008 (CST)
- Great work QuadFather, all of your changes were very good. They are here to stay. I hope you'll continue your helpful work here and elsewhere. I'll keep an eye on what your up to, and we'll hopefully be communicating again soon. -- Brooks Lindsay 13:59, 18 January 2008 (CST)
Go for it
I will let you know if you're doing anything wrong. Just try to put on the "hat" of someone that is trying to create an encyclopedia of arguments, documenting them as they are made in the public by the key thinkers involved. I am excited to see your work. -- Brooks Lindsay 20:46, 17 January 2008 (CST)
I would love to walk you through the process. Just proceed by editing on the Creationism vs. Evolution page, and I will see your edits (by the recent changes feature) and will offer suggestions and guidance as you go. -- Brooks Lindsay 20:07, 17 January 2008 (CST)
It is possible for you to outline arguments that have been made by scholars/philosophers. Ultimately, citations are important and we would love it if you were willing to make them, but that should not get in the way of you documenting legitimate arguments that you know are made by scholars/philosophers. Referencing and verification can be done by others. -- Brooks Lindsay 20:04, 17 January 2008 (CST)
Thanks QuadFather for the kind comments. You did the right thing by writing on my page. The only thing is that you should write ~~~~ to sign your comments. It makes it possible for other users to see that you made a comment and immediately link to your user page so that they can then, in turn, write a reply on your page.
Well written argument. I formatted it and added a couple of lines to flush it out. What you can try to do is find sources that have made that exact argument, and I could help you open up an argument page for your argument where you could quote the sources you uncover. Let me know on my user page if that interests you. -- Brooks Lindsay 19:06, 17 January 2008 (CST)
Thanks, and it's a pleasure to talk to someone so high up on the food chain, heh. I actually prefer discussing intelligent design, but this is a strong area for me as well. Consequently, most of my sources are from ID sources, which include authors William Dembski, Philip Johnson, Jonathan Wells, and writings from a plethora of others. I can make the arguments, and loosely refer to sources. However, I'm not sure how much time I have for actually digging up the references. We'll see, though, since I am feeling enthusiastic about this wiki site - what a great improvement over the extraordinarily biased moderation of wikipedia.
Books and External Links
I have corrected the God Delusion references at the bottom of the Creationism debate. We try not to post the same link both under external links and as a book link, and our book links should be to our Amazon store. Just cut and paste another link to our Amazon store and just change the ISBN number in the URL to reflect the book that you want to link to.
Thanks for all your great work!
