Hey, it's great to see you here. I remember you from the Intelligent Design NPOV dispute on Wikipedia. I'm glad you're contributing to this site.

BTW, did the ID dispute ever get resolved? I checked that article recently and it looks much improved. ChrisDuben 04:47, 10 Nov 2004 (GMT)

It's ongoing, I think, but I've been too busy to look in lately. Philip J. Rayment 14:53, 10 Nov 2004 (GMT)

Hi Phil thanks for the editing tips Roy 20:16, 1 Dec 2004 (GMT)

For Creating my user page -- Touche! Well played. :) Didnt mean to invade your personal space, Just doing a little housecleaning to spiff things up a bit.
Besides, you were the number one "needed page". Someone had to do it.  ;)
Your work on this wiki is Excellent.
And your reformat of the Contradictions page is correct. It matches the whole wiki format much better now. Charliehorse

Good to see you again, sir:). Ungtss 14:47, 2 March 2006 (GMT)

And you too. I like your line about being a "refugee from Wikipedia". You still following that wierd religion of yours? :-) Philip J. Rayment 23:28, 3 March 2006 (GMT)
Yessir I am:). I like to call it, "Christianity:)." Ungtss 04:10, 4 March 2006 (GMT)

Thanks a bunch for the help with the template. Template:Nscs --Chris Ashcraft 17:44, 23 March 2006 (GMT)

That's okay. There were a lot more articles affected than I would have thought! Philip J. Rayment 12:57, 24 March 2006 (GMT)

J-O-H-N is such a very strange spelling of Henry:). Is that an Aussie innovation:)? Ungtss 02:53, 15 May 2006 (GMT)

No, it's just that I prefer the name John! Philip John Rayment 03:03, 15 May 2006 (GMT)
nice:). Ungtss 18:39, 15 May 2006 (GMT)


Don't give up in your arguments with those who think that a Christian is more than simply what the Bible says it is. A Christian, as defined by the Bible, is someone who places their faith solely in Jesus Christ as God. Don't let the dicitonary define it. Scorpionman 21:56, 8 December 2006 (EST)

I'm sorry, but you'll need to remind me what discussion this is referring to. Philip J. Rayment 04:12, 12 December 2006 (EST)

Talk:Jesus Christ I believe. Scorpionman 06:40, 31 January 2007 (EST)

ICC book

Not originally published as a book, which was implied

I don't have a problem with your edit, but I strongly disagree that the implication is there that the book came first. Since the book reference comes after the description of the list as a web page, the (weak) implication is that the book came after the web page. If it said "had been published" instead of "was published", then we'd have a different ball game altogether. Anyway, your edit clarified what was a tad ambiguous, so we're good now. ~ "Webster" Otley (talk) 04:50, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

I can see your point. I guess what I had in mind was that many books get published in the Internet, but not too many Internet pages get published as books, so without the clarification, a reader would reasonably assume that the book came first. So it wasn't the wording as such that implied it, but the normal order these things happen. Philip J. Rayment 14:00, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

CMI building picture

Why did you reinstate an out-of-date picture on the Creation Ministries International article? Philip J. Rayment 06:42, 29 November 2011 (PST) Have you overlooked this question? Philip J. Rayment 06:23, 16 December 2011 (PST)

It should remain until an up-to-date picture is available to replace it. --Ashcraft - (talk) 20:39, 17 December 2011 (PST)

Hiding vandalism

It appears that you are not using the option to hide vandalism without deleting pages. This feature has been available since MediaWiki 1.16, which CreationWiki uses, although the feature is disabled by default. See here. With this you can choose to hide the content of edits, the edit comment, and/or the editor's username. It is quite easy to use, works well, and can easily be undone (which means that you can safely play around with it to get comfortable with it). Philip J. Rayment 00:00, 11 December 2012 (PST)

Thanks - I'll look into it... --Ashcraft - (talk) 06:11, 14 December 2012 (PST)


Hi! I am following your edits and editing the portuguese article in the same way. I am waiting Mr. Ashcraft opinion about the magazine box I've created to copy to the english version. If Mr. Ashcraft approves the box I will copy to the english article. Best regards and God bless you. Luiz Alexandre Silva 06:01, 1 February 2013 (PST)

I've noticed some of your work. Great effort!
Why not just create a template? If another editor is not happy with it, it can be changed just like anything else. I've created a few templates on this site, which have been altered by others in some way. Also, if others do have comments, they have an obvious page (the template talk page) to make comments. I could make a few comments about your box right now, but where should I make them? On one of the pages you've used it on is not appropriate, and neither is your talk page the best place. But the template's talk page is, well, exactly what the template's talk page is for!
Does the Portugese-language article on Creation magazine mention that it's an English-language publication? You'd expect that to be self-evident on the English-language page (and therefore there's no need to mention it), but not the Portugese-language page.
Philip J. Rayment 06:14, 1 February 2013 (PST)
Thank you very much. I insert the information that the magazine is in english idiom. I will build a template! Thank you for the help, Luiz Alexandre Silva 07:15, 1 February 2013 (PST)


Hi! I started to make some of the changes you suggested and have started to quote from the Royal Truman´s article (I intend to explore more the material of the article. The phrase in the beginning was just a start). Given that it is a complex article, I sometimes feel lost not feeling secure if the sections and subsections that I've created are the most appropriate, if the information is in a proper order, etc...Not to mention my difficulties in English. So I would like to count on your help. Feel comfortable to change what you find it necessary in the article. God bless you! Luiz Alexandre Silva 04:17, 8 August 2013 (EDT)

Dear Philip, I used an excerpt written by you on the talk page that I found very well written and appropriate. Just insert a small modification (exchanged "etc." by Shannon entropy). I hope that you agree with this insert. If you do not agree with the insertion or modification, feel completely free to change the text. Take this opportunity to thank the suggestions you made. I'm trying to follow them, but I still need help for a review. Best regards, Luiz Alexandre Silva 05:01, 8 August 2013 (EDT)
