Hello. This is my talk page. Have a question for me? Am I wrong? Right? Please do not hesitate to talk!--Temlakos 18:03, 15 December 2006 (EST)

Thanks! That was a great help. I actually did catch the fact that it only mentioned male homosexuals in there...most likely because it's the closest they can come to explaining it "naturally."
He's still bugging me to "show him why it's wrong," however, and the best I can do is tell him that desiring sex just for pleasure is degrading, but he doesn't really believe that and I'm not sure where to go next. :P Scorpionman 05:51, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Here's another "study" he linked me to: [1] that supposedly shows that a hormonal imbalance in the womb is responsible for being gay. It's rather complicated but you get the gist. Personally, aside from the fact that they haven't found anything conclusive, I haven't found much to object to. Your thoughts? Scorpionman 16:32, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

It seems, then, that being gay is on par with having Downs syndrome...which means it IS an illness! How ironic that his attempt to prove the original theory wrong proved it right! Simply amazing. Scorpionman 18:01, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
On the other hand, if it isn't a choice as shown here, and if it doesn't have any directly negative effects, why is it immoral? Scorpionman 02:37, 28 November 2008
The problem is...in my debate I am unable right now to show that it is immoral. How can I show him it's a sin if there is really nothing wrong with it? And is it possible to overcome it if it is a hormonal disposition? Scorpionman 19:37, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Problems with the multiple footnote tag.

Hello, I've been editing the anticreationist debate tactics article, and I'm having trouble using the same footnote more than once. Would you please take a look at the article and see if you can tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Biblical chronology dispute

Would you like to recommend including OrthodoxWiki, or whatever it's called, to the Interwiki table? If so, please share with me, on my Talk page, the official name of OrthodoxWiki (or how you'd like to be able to cite it) and the full particulars of the preferred URL for an article in it. The administration is always looking out for ways to enhance the site's resources, and the Interwiki table is one such resource.--TemlakosTalk 04:10, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello apologies for replying so late, but absolutely, yes, that sounds like a great idea. Let me know what info you need for the Interwiki table and I will reply asap. The official name of OrthodoxWiki is: OrthodoxWiki; its infopage is here: OrthodoxWiki:About. Website Main Page: http://orthodoxwiki.org/Main_Page ALso, there is a link on the OW main page for "Other Wikis", where I have already added a link to CreationWiki. I will see about getting interwiki linking on their end as well. This would be an enhancement both ways. Cheers, Angellight 888 06:04, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Abiogenesis

I'm assuming you've seen Expelled...here's a lamebrain's "satire" of the "Casino of Life" animated segment. Notice any problems in his reasoning? Scorpionman 22:18, 16 January 2009 (UTC) [2]

Definitely so...and of course the fact that he immediately labels anyone who disbelieves in abiogenesis as a Biblical creationist who watches Kent Hovind all the time doesn't lend to his crediblity any. Scorpionman 04:28, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
LOL, that's exactly right because he's looking for a straw-man to knock down, as most evolutionists are. For example: "Intelligent Design is the idea that the universe is too complex to have evolved by chance" (in actuality, it is the idea that design is inherently detectable in nature). Fear of accountability really does something to one's reason, doesn't it? Scorpionman 04:21, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Why'd you revert it?

I know Dora the Explorer was a horrible example to use a fill-in, but Chistopher Columbus is a mis-leading example to put as the only 'desirable' sort of ET.

The things CC did were factual and overall gruesome. He enslaved thousands of natives and killed many more. Anyone with a highschool education knows that. That isn't something derived from wikipidia it's common knowledge to anyone that's studied him. I wont try to change it back, but I suggest someone make an actual artical on Columbus or do a little research before they post something such as putting him as a good example of a 'moral' explorer.

There was a problem with those files (perhaps having something to do with me uploading them from school) which I believe is corrected now. FYI - I put an 03-PowerPoint version in the ZIP file. I you cant unzip it, let me know and I throw one up by itself.

Conservapedia

I was reading an article on it the other day, and found a typo. I couldn't edit the page anonymously (no surprise there), nor could I leave a comment on the Talk page. I couldn't leave a comment on a User_talk page, either. I was at work, and I didn't want to bother requesting an account for just one little typo, but not being able to do anything at all was somewhat frustrating. ~ "Webster" Otley (talk) 01:01, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

I know (and knew) I could have requested an account, but I chose not to for several reasons, including the following.
  1. I have three children under five -- I can barely keep up with the wikis I am already on!
  2. I didn't feel it was appropriate to request an account on a political site while at work.
  3. Besides, it was just for one typo fix. I would have spent ten times as long requesting the account as I would have spent editing.
I just wanted to leave a message somewhere. I understand about vandals, but most anons are benevolent, as I was. ~ "Webster" Otley (talk) 05:00, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

So, anyway, I tried creating an account, but was blocked immediately. [3] Apparently, a vandal created an account within a few minutes of me, and the admin didn't like my looks, so he blocked my account, too, despite my lack of edits. Could you put in a good word for me, please? ~ "Webster" Otley (talk) 06:51, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Apparently just saying that I knew you was good enough for him, b/c he unblocked me last night.
I made one little edit to the "public domain" page and got a note of thanks from "Andy". I only added one little word. How much of a difference could that make? I just added the word "not".  :-) ~ "Webster" Otley (talk) 01:02, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Temlakos: "Your recent edit to this article seems harsh. Are you sure you want those words to stand? Declaring so baldly that a thing is wrong is useless unless we show why it is wrong.

I would also ask you to be more specific. If by "evolution" one means the arising of one created kind from another, your statement that "there is no evidence..." would be correct and indisputable. As it is, it is subject to interpretation. Tell what you mean by evolution, and then the reader can understand properly when you say that you find no evidence that it has ever occurred."

RM: I said evolution was false because it is based on Materialism and because once the assumption of Materialism is accepted it can never be falsified----only modified.

Evolution, since Darwin, is change caused by unintelligent agency (= Materialism). Evolution is false because unintelligent agencies do not exist in nature. We see ID. This means Intelligent agencies are operating in nature----species are immutable.

I appreciate your respectful overtures. If my edit is too strong then delete?

"Update: You can see how I modified the Evolution article. I found a way to make your points in a manner that no one can legitimately assail as argumentum ad hominem or jousting with a straw man.--Temlakos"

RM: I like your edit----it is good, however. It is inaccurate to say that I had erected a straw man. All you did was add to or expand the prose. The objects remain.

the Sorting

Hello, brother Terry.

You can see that our Russian site is quite growing. We are translating English materials and add new information. I am adding new templates, help materials regarding using CreationWiki and useful pages for our work. Let me ask you several questions:

  1. Can we use piece of materials (not whole articles) from free resources such as Wikipedia without citation ?
  2. How can we change the sorting rule in the categories. Right now, the pages are sorting according the first character of the name by similar to English alphabet, and not to Russian. As example, the word Цитология (Citology) starts from the char Ц, which is only on the 24th place in the Russian alphabet, but the same character in English - C, is the third character. It looks that the sorting in the categories works according to English alphabet or by another rules, but not to rules of the Russian alphabet.
  3. Please check English articles Russia and Lomonosov, Michael Vasilevich as I am requested before.

Thank you in advance. With love in Jesus Christ Alexander Korolev 19:07, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Hello brother

I am very happy to can help you in the work of the Lord in translating your article's in frensh. The reason is that it's my own language. It's more difficult for me to translate from Frensh to English... So if you have some translaion work's you can submit me. In the possibilty's of my free time i can do it. We are in the last time's, so it's very important for me to take a maximum of my free time to make know the truth. In witch domain of scientist are you specialist?

God bless you

reply

1)The ewpression " Dessein intelligent " is the good word in Frensh, even we use more the English expression. 2)It's the first time that i work on a wiki programm, but my great son has very much experience in this subject than me, even i am programmer and 30 years experience in hardware and software.

How can i change the " Menu des articles ", per exemple in changing "Témoignements pour une jeune terre" in "Témoignage pour une terre jeune " without having a link error ? I don't find where is the link adress!

Big Bang

I think you misunderstood what I stated on the talk page, although it's not very nice for you to assume bad faith. Dark matter and dark energy are indeed constructs, my desire is that the whole evidence is explained in the article, and not just two examples. It is just intellectual honesty, nothing more! I am neither pro-BigBang nor pro-anything for that matter. Being pro-something limits one's ability to consider all the variety of opinions and be objective in descriptions.

Original Thiele Chronology

I have recently been doing a review of my bible timeline that I have been working on for quite a long time. The source of information that I use for the period of the divided kingdoms was that of Mr Thiele.

I was not sure about the last part of his chronology but accepted it as it was. I later came across the work of Mr McFall who restored the recognition of a coregency between Ahaz and Hezekiah. I incorporated this into my timeline but still felt that not every thing was right.

In just the last 6 months or so, I have undertaken a review of my bible timeline, comparing the lengths of reigns with the synchronisms. In the process I also had a closer look at the information that Mr Thiele has put in the third edition of his book Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings.

I worked out a chronological pattern that seemed to be consistant with the scriptural data of 1 & 2 Kings, and then made a comparison with the notes in Mr Thiele's book. Mr Thiele in the preface of his book discusses the process that he went through in order to create a chronological pattern that was consistant with the biblical data. This work took him about 4 years just to work through the first few kings. After that it was just a matter of a few weeks to complete his pattern.

His next phase was to start putting on fixed known dates. And he started with the correlation between Shalmaneser III year 6 and 18, with Ahab and Jehu. From this starting point he then worked backwards and forwards applying dates.

According to his notes in the preface of his book, he expressed surprise and dismay when he found that the chronological pattern as it then stood had a date for the fall of Samaria in 711 and the third campaign of Sennacherib being in 702. This was his pattern as it then existed.

In my reworking my bible timeline using what I saw as the methodology of Mr Thiele, I tried to use just the information of the biblical data. What I found was that my timeline was able to match the data 100 percent. And like Mr Thiele, I found that the fall of Samaria turned out to be 711 and the 14th year of Hezekiah was in 702.

I have looked through Mr Thiele's book and found several diagrams that he included which demonstrate this pattern. What I have concluded, is that Mr Thiele actually did come up with a biblically correct chronological pattern as a result of his study and methodology.

It would seem that it was only after consultation with his peers that he made the changes from his orginal chronological pattern to that which was later published. Namely changing the reign of Pekah to be aligned to Jotham, and the change to the reign of Ahaz.

I am sure that what I have put together is what was Mr Thiele's original pattern. I would be interested in your thoughts.

Regards Norman Orr

Thiele's scheme has a number of problems that I noticed for some time, even before I acquired a copy of Floyd Nolen Jones' excellent Chronology of the Old Testament.
The biggest problem, just looking at the synchronies between the Kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah, is that Thiele has Uzziah becoming co-rex with his father Amaziah eight years before he was born. I find that well-nigh irreconcilable.
The source of Thiele's 45-year error is assuming, without warrant, that Shalmaneser III synchronizes with Ahab and Jehu. Those synchronies are in dispute even among Assyriologists. But even if they are correct—that does not mean that Ahab and Jehu must be moved up 45 years into the future from where Ussher (and Jones) place them. Equally likely, 45 years of the Assyrian Eponym List might be missing. I have recently looked again at the synchrony of the prophet Jonah with King Jeroboam II. If Shalmaneser III did synchronize with Ahab and Jehu, then Jonah would have gone to Nineveh at about the beginning of one of those 45 missing years.
Now consider, as Jones did, what happened when Jonah went to Nineveh: he actually brought about a conversion of Assyrian society to the worship of the God of the Israelites. Later generations of kings of Assyria are known to have repudiated anything having to do with kings preceding King Shalmaneser IV--the predecessor, with one king intervening, of Tiglath-Pileser III, the founder of the Neo-Assyrian Empire.
One possible motive: a total repudiation of the God of Israel/Judah and an encouragement of a mindset of conquest. When a new king comes in and wants to start recruiting and rearming to go "whap" on someone, the first thing he does is to make sure that people return to "the true faith." Hence the solution: Jonah visited a king of Assyria who has since been memorywashed, to the extent that Tiglath-Pileser III (or perhaps Shalmaneser IV and/or Asshur-Dan III) cut out 45 years of the Eponym List to make sure that no one would ever remember that king's name. The missing piece does not include the pivotal year of Bur-Sagale, marked by a total eclipse of the sun.
Then again, Shalmaneser III makes several boasts that make his contacts highly dubious. To take one example: Jehu, the Revolutionary of Israel, would never have shown such abject obeisance to a foreign ruler as Shalmaneser says that he did. Besides, the Bible never once suggests any such contact. The earliest contact is with "Pul king of Assyria"--and that king is Asshur-Dan III and not Tiglath-Pileser III.
Other problems: yes, Jehoahaz I or "Ahaz" made Hezekiah his co-rex--for about his last year, and no longer. More to the point: Ahaz sired Hezekiah when he, Ahaz, was eleven years old. I can accept that; no doubt Jotham arranged a child marriage between his son Ahaz and Abi, daughter of Zechariah II. Jotham had had to become pro-rex when King Uzziah foolishly tried to burn incense in the Temple and was struck by leprosy--and Zechariah was almost certainly present when high priest Ahaziah III said, "Your Majesty, get out of the sanctuary!" A friendship forged in that sort of crisis might impel its members to do some pretty strange things--including arrange a child marriage. Neither man expected the marriage to bear fruit as soon as it did--but that must have happened. But--by Thiele's reckoning, Ahaz sired Hezekiah when he was at the tender age of one! Flatly impossible.
In sum: Thiele ignored the stated ages-at-accession of many of the kings of Judah at the time that he began to telescope 45 years out of the histories of Israel and Judah. Now he could get away with that in the case of the kings of Israel, because Jeremiah (author of 1 and 2 Kings) did not state their ages. But the statements of the ages of the kings of Judah did Thiele in.
Of course, that means that an interregnum of 12 years existed between Jeroboam II and King Zachariah—but why not? Likewise, Hoshea was not called a "king" until nine years after he assassinated Pekah—possibly because Tiglath-Pileser III did not allow him to carry this title but instead hired him as a provincial governor, answering directly to the Assyrian crown. In any event, multiple synchronies with King Uzziah, one of the longest-reigning kings of Judah, will not admit of Pekah acceding to the throne of a "third kingdom" of Ephraim at the same year that Menahem killed Shallum and became king of Israel. Nor can we admit that Pekah would be a king in his own right and a captain-of-the-guard to King Pekahiah.--TemlakosTalk 02:30, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Thiele Original Chronology

I have in the last 6 months undertaken a complete review of the material that Mr Thiele puts into his third edition of the Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings. This is because as I was reading the Prefaces to his earlier editions, I noticed something that I had previously missed.

I found that Mr Thiele as part of his preface goes into a little of the efforts that he undertook in the preparation of a chronological pattern of the kings of Judah and Israel that was true to the biblical data of the reigns of the kings and the synchronisms between the kings as recorded in the scriptures.

He mentions that after 4 years of hard work, he was finally able to start to understand how the interlocking information was able to be pieced together. Once he had completed his pattern, he then undertook to apply what were considered to be known dates. His starting point that he chose was the synchronism of Ahab and Jehu with Shalmanesser III, years 6 and 18. From this point, he then worked backwards, and forwards.

In his preface to the first edition, which is included in his third edition, Mr Thiele then goes on to express "surprise and dismay" to find that according to his chronological pattern "as it then existed" that "the last year of Hoshea and the fall of Samaria was 711" while the third campaign of Senacherib "turned out to be 702".

This was the dating of his first chronological pattern, which as far as I can determine, retained the correct order of all the synchronisms and reigns of the kings. This included haveing the reign of Pekah of Israel following the reign of Pekahiah in its entirety, with no overlap, or rival reign.

This chronological pattern was out of step with Assyrian Chronology by 12 years. This was something that Mr Thiele was unable to resolve.

It is only afterwards that Mr Thiele sat down and reworked a chronological pattern which was more inline with Assyrian Chronology, and it is this revised pattern which was published, not his original pattern.

Now that I believe that I have a better understanding of the methodology that Mr Thiele used in his work, I have sat down with the bible, and using the information from 1 Kings and 2 Kings, I have put together what I have determined to be Mr Thiele's first chronological pattern. I would be happy to forward this to you if you have an interest in looking at it.

Regards Norman Orr

Thieles orginal chronological pattern

I am not sure how to really use this facility yet ...

am too used to forums or direct email... so excuse me if this doesnt work properly...

my email is normanorr@xtra.co.nz send me an email and I will forward my bible timeline file for the period of the kings.

On my time line i have made some significant alterations that you need to be aware of.

The first is that I have realigned Assyrian Chronology so that the fall of samaria is 711, instead of 722. This is because I believe that the bible chronology is the most accurate, and that those of other nations should be aligned to it. Based on what I believe to be Thiele's original chronological pattern for the Judah and Hebrew Kings, when he first applied "fixed dates", his pattern resulted in the fall of samaria in 711. The chronological pattern that I have put together using his methodology comes out to this date.

The second change that I have made to Assyrian Chronology is based on the work of Damien Mackey, who has put forward the proposal that the reigns of Sargon II and Senacherib should be amalgamated into that of one person. I think that Ussher may have also made this proposal. What I have done on my time line is to actually treat them as two individuals, but to have them aligned by a coregency of father and son.

As far as the chronology of Mr Thiele, there is one modification that I have made, and that is with regard to the reign of Joash of Judah. The normal practice has been to start his counting from the 7th year of Jehu, when the priest put Joash on the throne, outsing Athaliah the queen. My reason for this is based on the synchronism for Jehoahaz coming to the throne of Israel in the 23rd year of Joash.

Based on using non ascention reckoning for both kings, Jehoahaz comes to the throne after the death of his father in the 22 year of Joash when the years for Joash are counted from the 7th of Jehu. However if the years for Joash are counted as being from the death of his father at the hand of Jehu, then the years for Jehu and Joash run together. This then has the effect of keeping the correct synchronism between Joash and Jehoahaz.

There is also a side effect of all this. The alignment of Ahab and Jehu is retained with the correct years of Shalmanesser III. With the revision of the Assyrian Chronology so that the fall of Samaria is in 711, the battle of qarqar is redated to the year 842.

I realise that I am no scholar by any definition of the word. But I do think that I have good grounds for my presentation of the orginal material of Mr Thiele, before he made his changes to fit accepted Assyrian chronology. I can no longer accept his position with regard to the reigns of Ahaz and Pekah. And the chronological pattern I have put together seems to reflect the position of the bible and has the same results as Mr Thiele describes in his first pattern.

Mr Thiele has included in the third edition of Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings, several graphs which I believe show what his original pattern really was. And the pattern that I have put together seems to reflect these graphs, with some minor refinements.

I would be interested in your feed back... although I appreciate that you might not agree with my conclusions.

Hello brother,

Could you please help me with the placing video on our pages. First time I have used special construction {{#ev:youtube|id-of-video}} (founded on English site) and it has been working perfectly. But for now it is not so. Instead of video from YouTube only strange tag <embedvideo-embed-clause> is presenting. I have tried to prepare template with the code of Flash-player, but without expected result. You can see the finished result of my attempts on the page Universe.

Your help will be high appreciated. Please answer on my tall page.

In Jesus Christ with love. Alexander Korolev 15:53, 14 November 2010 (PST)

<references/> vs. {{reflist}}

Why do people here, as well as at Wikipedia, always change the former to the latter? --Chemicalinterest (talk) 07:58, 29 January 2011 (PST)

My guess is that usage of the template enforces the local wiki's style, as opposed to merely dropping a list of links onto the page. ⇔ ChristTrekker 06:19, 20 October 2011 (PDT)

Dear Temlakos, I am a Cambridge researcher invited by Chris despite certain drawbacks especially to contribute my as yet unpublished original research on Human Y-chromosomal Haplogroups to creation wiki. Of course you did not know this and it is only normal to be suspicious of things one does not understand. But please do not revert my edits again as it does no favor to creationism. As time permits I will be building upon every contribution to clarify it. Patience is golden. God bless you.Kaz 07:01, 16 April 2011 (PDT)

How in the world does one create a new account there? I've been stopping by occasionally for years and have never figured it out. ⇔ ChristTrekker 06:17, 20 October 2011 (PDT)

Re

It has been a huge pleasure to edit here. Other wikis are predominantly full of evolutionists and they ostensibly fight different points of view. It seems that the evolutionists are the new inquisition. They vote to delete pages of creationists (eg Adauto Lourenço page has been deleted three times), but they vote to keep pages of insignificant pornographic actors and actresses. So I decided to commit all my efforts here, because we share the same viewpoint, and it pleases God. I feel very welcome and I can only thank the opportunity. My problem is my English level, but many friends have helped me.

Thank you very much!

Atheism article

I just wrote a message to Chris Ashcraft at facebook allerting him that I think the editor God Aboveall is not a creationist. Well done! God bless you and a happy new year. Luiz Alexandre Silva 10:55, 30 December 2012 (PST)

Yes, after I wrote to Ashcraft I saw you blocked the user. He is probably an atheist and faker. We must stay alert because this work challenges their beliefs. Nice job! God bless you and your family. Happy new year! Luiz Alexandre Silva 11:19, 30 December 2012 (PST)

Help

Dear Temlakos,

I just made an article named David Berlinski. I gathered information on my books and on the internet. But as my English is not native and is not fluent I tend to develop short sentences that makes the article looks with a naive way. Can you help me reading the article and giving an improved in how it is written? Thank you in advance. A big hug, Luiz Alexandre Silva 12:48, 5 April 2013 (PDT)

Thank you very much for the help! God bless you! Luiz Alexandre Silva 13:27, 5 April 2013 (PDT)

Huge help

Dear TemLakos,

I am facing some trouble in understand how the Template:Infobox Planet works.

I can not understand where and how the word "Aphelion" in the article Eris appeared in the Infobox Planet. I can not find this word neither in the Eris article nor in the Template:Infobox Planet. So this word ("Aphelion") must come from another place.

Can you help me in this particular subject?

God bless you

Luiz Alexandre Silva 08:41, 12 April 2013 (PDT)

Dear Temlakos, thank you for the information and help! Thank you a lot! God bless you! Luiz Alexandre Silva 09:32, 12 April 2013 (PDT)

It works!

Dear TemLakos, here is the "under construction" page of Eris in portuguese CreationWiki. After read your explanation I succeeded in rendering the word "Afélio" (english: Aphelion). In portuguese we use the letter "f" and I had to insert a different condition in the switch clause. Again, thank you for your promptly and kindness help. Hugs, Luiz Alexandre Silva 10:26, 12 April 2013 (PDT)

Another help

Dear Temlakos, sorry to bother you, but I need help again.

In the article Éris I could not remove the error messages (yellow triangles) from these two properties: 'Velocidade orbital média' and 'Inclinação'. The message is saying: Type not supported, but I've created the types.

I tried many combinations but I can not see where I am wrong.

So I come to ask you for help again.

Can you help me in this particular subject?

God bless you

Luiz Alexandre Silva 10:15, 14 April 2013 (PDT)

Thank you very much.!! Hugs, Luiz Alexandre Silva 13:35, 14 April 2013 (PDT)

Dear Temlakos,

I started an article and a template in the French CreationWiki. I'd like to ask if you can review my text in French because my knowledge of this language is small (only studied a year of the French language).

The article is: fr:Effet de goulot d'étranglement The template is: fr:Modèle:Ébauche

Thanks in advance any help you can provide me

ASCII

Dear Temlakos, I am not sure if the correct way is to name the article ASCII or the full name. I ask you, please, to help me in this matter. If the right way is to use the full name please let me know and we can rename the article. God bless you! Luiz Alexandre Silva 10:27, 2 November 2013 (EDT)

OK, so it's good for me, because you already have created the redirect. A big hug, Luiz Alexandre Silva 11:03, 2 November 2013 (EDT)

Embeded video from any videohosting

Hello.

Could you please help us in embeded video on Russian site ? Internal method with specific mediawiki command like {{#ev:youtube|w6JoNZiZ6vI}} is not working. I have tried to prepare a template template:youtube (in russian), but it is not working too (mediawiki places into page tags, instead of real content). Thank you in advance!

Some strange content on Russian Portal

Hello.

Peace and grace from our Lord!

New user Lightfairy on Russian Portal has published three very strange articles. They are

The singularity of these materials is that it is not connected with creationism and looks like marginal hypothesis of Aram Enfi http://aramenfi.narod.ru/ and this is not science or overview of facts at all, but only pseudoscientific content. Anyway is it not about creation, or biology or chemistry or molecular energy or Universe origin or God. All of these material only about some kind of psyhology and strange presentation of human soul connected to music and sounds. I am not sure that it is important for our encyclopedia.

You may try to use Google Translate service to understand basic information of these articles.

Additionally I can say that Aram Enfy and his followers have unsuccessfully tried to publish many materials related to his theories to Russian Wikipedia but it was deleted by admins as non-science and without authoritative sources.

Could you please help to understand that should I do in this case. Thank you a lot in advance. Alexander Korolev 03:54, 2 June 2014 (EDT)

Thank you. Please delete all contributions of Lightfairy into Media Pool. http://creationwiki.org/pool/Special:Contributions/Lightfairy All of these are releated with articles mentioned before. Alexander Korolev 06:16, 2 June 2014 (EDT)
Sorry. I have insufficient privileges for deletetion this myself. I can only follow the changes of materials in Media Pool. Alexander Korolev 06:47, 2 June 2014 (EDT)
Could you please help to make a decision. The user appeal (Google Translate) that these materials are about creationism and has positive response from famous scientists. Please note that is true, but all of these data looks like some kind of esoteric philosophy. It is about etic, philosophy and not aboout God as a Creator. Scientists that user meant are psychoanalytics, psychologists and philosophers, all humanitarian and non-christian. My doubts are connected with fact that material is non christian and looks like pseudo-scientific.
Alexander Korolev 19:17, 6 June 2014 (EDT)
Yes. But the policy of creationwiki is argue that any creationists world-view may be accepted if the user accepts God as Creator. There are users - muslims and jews in creationwiki, as I know. Personally I understand that these materials of LightFairy are not acceptable for me as christian, but I have not enough points of rules for explain this for user officially from project policy (not as just private christian).
