Merge Post-theism into Atheism (merged)[edit]

Post-theism would be much better in the atheism article, which is already gold.-💎📀1️⃣ (talk) 21:14, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Merge Ultrasonic pest control and Audio woo (merged)[edit]

-💎📀1️⃣ (talk) 17:17, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

Sounds good. —вιgℓʝвιgℓ (ᴛᴀʟᴋ/sᴛᴀʟᴋ) 18:18, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Merge all the articles on a book of the Bible (separate)[edit]

into one page.-💎📀1️⃣ (talk) 20:46, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

No. The bible is a group of multiple books, each of which (the important ones anyway) need their own article. —вιgℓʝвιgℓ (ᴛᴀʟᴋ/sᴛᴀʟᴋ) 03:41, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
Agree with Bigljbigl above; as it says in the good book of The Offspring, chapter Smash, verse Come Out and Play: "You gotta keep 'em separated." ScepticWombat (talk) 03:36, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Aristocracy and Junta into Oligarchy (separate)[edit]

All three are hopelessly tiny stubs, and on the same topic, so maybe merging them will make their size acceptable. —вιgℓʝвιgℓ (ᴛᴀʟᴋ/sᴛᴀʟᴋ) 22:31, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

I disagree, while aristocracies and juntas might be characterised as oligarchies, they are very particular types of governments in and of themselves. ScepticWombat (talk) 03:30, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
@BigljbiglAristocracy=Oligarchy? Aristotle would like to disagree. I say keep them separate. RoninMacbeth (talk) 03:33, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Merge Gene and DNA (merged)[edit]

Support. Suggest move (definitely) Chromosome & DNA & RNA & Gene and (possibly) Gene-centered view of evolution & Gene flow to Genetics. The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk) 23:01, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

Merge Bryan Denlinger With Denlingerism (merged)[edit]

Denlingerism should just be a section of the page on Bryan Denlinger, with the sections of Denlingerism becoming subsections. —вιgℓʝвιgℓ (ᴛᴀʟᴋ/sᴛᴀʟᴋ) 03:35, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

Support.-💎📀1️⃣ (talk) 05:15, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

Evil Jew and Antisemitism (separate)[edit]

I'd actually suggest merging to Evil Jew; there's no need to specify anti-Jewish racism, but there is a need to specify Jewish caricatures. (Sidenote: If we moved the Islamaphobia article to whatever the Muslim equivalent to Black brute is, then we'd complete the trifecta.) Cømяade FυzzчCαтPøтαтø (talk/stalk) 11:24, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

None of that makes any sense. WěǎšěǐǒǐďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:31, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm with the Weaseloid on this one. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 11:18, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Apologies, Internetting too late:
1: Merge antisemitism and Evil Jew.
2: There's no need to specify anti-Jewish racism (antisemitism), because we don't specify other categories of racism (antiblack, antiHispanic, etc.), but we do specify other categories of racist caricatures (black brute, etc.). Thus, we should focus on the racist caricature instead of the racism proper.
3: If we moved Islamaphobia to the antiMuslim caricature (whatever that might be), we would have the modero, n racist trifecta: Black Brute, Evil Jew, Jihadi John. Cømяade FυzzчCαтPøтαтø (talk/stalk) 13:05, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Antisemitism & Islamophobia are phenomena that need our attention, regardless of whether they resolve as a single stereotype (which they don't). ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 13:59, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
These are bad ideas and we should not do this - David Gerard (talk) 22:47, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Personally, I oppose merging the articles.

Merge Antisemitism with Evil Jew



Keep Them Two Separate Articles

Merge Totalitarianism into Authoritarianism (separate)[edit]

Make totalitarianism a section of authoritarianism and leave a redirect. —вιgℓʝвιgℓ (ᴛᴀʟᴋ/sᴛᴀʟᴋ) 23:07, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

I think the two are different enough to justify separate articles. RoninMacbeth (talk) 14:26, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Merge Autocracy and List of forms of government (merged)[edit]

-💎📀1️⃣ (talk) 02:40, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Agreed. RoninMacbeth (talk) 03:00, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Merge Jesusween into Halloween (merged)[edit]

It fits pretty well into the bigger and more-useful Halloween article. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 02:15, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Just dump it as subsection and leave a redirect, its a stub anyway. Bubba41102Is reaching a breaking point 02:25, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

The Great Flood and the food web and Post flood animal survival (merged)[edit]

Same topic. Sir ℱ℧ℤℤϒℂᗩℑᑭƠℑᗩℑƠ (talk/stalk) 16:20, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Same topic, and I agree. What do you think about merging both of those two into the bigger Great Flood article, specifically here? Seems to duplicate the contents of those articles. We could also toss in Insects and the global flood. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 16:23, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
Or, if nothing else, maybe shorten down the sections in the Great Flood article, and migrate all survivability articles into one main articule that includes the two you listed above in the topic name, Plants and the global flood, Insects and the global flood and Aquatic species and the global flood. Then atleast we'd have one big, great survivability-of-life-during-and-after-the-flood article that could reach frontpage. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 16:25, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
The problem is that, though all of the content is about the Global Flood, it'd be an absolutely massive article to put it all in there. Linking between the multiple articles for distinct flood-related topics is sufficient. Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 16:49, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
The fact is that the content isn't just all about the Global Flood, it's about the very same issue - the whole ridiculous problem of how various lifeforms could've made it past a divine, global flood for us to still end up like we have today, with land animals and such. And a few of these literally overlap (compare) at several places (compare). And they're all like "Well, the flood would be kind of a problem for life, heh". We don't need to have 5+ parallel articles that semi-restate this in their respective summaries. I'd say these obviously need a merger, and that that merger would NOT be the additive length of all the articles - via rephrasing, restructuring and chopping out the repeat statements, we'd end up with one sanely long, good or decent article. Unlike now, with several repetitive semi-stubs on the exact same topic. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:27, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
We could call the merged article "Life and the global flood" or what have you. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:31, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Seems like a good idea. It would become one motherfuckingly massive article, but I think that is justified.--JorisEnter (talk) 17:41, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

I could live with a "Life and the global flood" article. FuzzyCatPotato!™ (talk/stalk) 17:46, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Merge Salt therapy with Alternative medicine (separate)[edit]

-💎📀1️⃣ (talk) 19:32, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

No. This makes no sense. If we merged every article we had about a specific kind of bullshit fake medicine into alt-med, we'd have an alt-med article ten thousand pages long, and no easy-google debunks of bullshit. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 21:29, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
