Broken file links make a wiki look shit[edit]

Can you please copy over the missing image files from EvoWiki? Leaving red links where pictures should be will make us look line one of those dreadful Wikipedia mirror sites, where pages glow red with broken files and templates and links that will never be filled.

I added a few images from Wikimedia based on matching image names, but others may be missing though there should be analogs in most cases if there is nothing salvagable from Evowiki. Bongolian (talk) 16:56, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Another article?[edit]

History of the #theories# of the history of Earth - including the evolution of the various forms of creationism since the 19th century (as 'creation myths in antiquity to approximately mid-19th century were #logical in their times# - though what proportion of 'them in the ancient world' would accept the statement 'the gods took what we think of as billions of years to create the world and the humans therein' a reasonable statement, and how generally accepted were Ussher's calculations from postulation to final abandonment as 'God moves in mysterious ways and will take whatever time he wants'?

It could be a reasonable separate article if you know enough about the subject to distinguish it from existing articles. Bongolian (talk) 17:56, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Needs references?[edit]

At 8,637 words this article has 7 references, and the references only seem to cover a small part of the history. Is it enough to add the Template:sources needed template?

Also should I be asking for things like that or just do them and mention why I did that and hope somebody rollbacks me when I am dumb? NoJohYouAreTheDemons (talk) 13:56, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

You are correct @NoJohYouAreTheDemons, this page does need more references. You can do one or both (add the "sources needed" template or add more references that you know are appropriate). Bongolian (talk) 17:32, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
