Fuck, someone needs to learn how to auto-tune. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:54, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

There was something wrong with this page[edit]

When you pressed the edit button you found links given as references for quotes etc, they appeared between the <ref></ref>. When you didn't press the edit button but instead clicked to get to footnotes different footnotes came up which didn't appear between the <ref></ref> when the page was opened for editing. You can check this problem by clicking onto This old version of the page. Proxima Centauri (talk) 07:48, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

I've found out part of what was wrong, references that came above the {{raycomfort}} template didn't appear in the footnotes for some reason. I moved the {{raycomfort}} template higher up the page and the references now come right. Still the layout was worse afterwards and I had to work to improve that. Proxima Centauri (talk)

If the template contains random dpl it tends to muck these things up. Peter This is not my first temporal anomaly 08:22, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

The problem probably exists with other pages that have the {{raycomfort}} template, perhaps/probably with other templates too. Proxima Centauri (talk) 08:38, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

It is a problem with all pages with similar templates that include random lists of pages, yes. Peter This is not my first temporal anomaly 08:41, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

What should we do? Often the layout of a page is better with the template lower down and good faith editors will keep on trying to improve page layout by putting templates too low in the page. Proxima Centauri (talk) 08:50, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Preventing trouble[edit]

I put the text below onto this page, it warns editors but doesn't show on the page unless you press the edit button.  :-
<!--please don't put any referenced links above the {{raycomfort}} template as the computer can't handle those links. --> Proxima Centauri (talk) 07:44, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Proxie's revisions[edit]

Proxie's revisions are actually better, here. Claiming someone lied is pretty weak. Claiming they probably lied, and even "if not" they are idiots is far better. --Green mowse.pngGodotQu'un sang impur Abreuve nos sillons 01:05, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

I've put it back into the article and on reflection I agree with Godot that Kirk probably lied. I have studied Ray Comfort and Kirk at length but I've come across no witnesses to Kirk's supposed atheism. I kept the original politer statement that "it's not likely his atheism was well thought out.". Can I do stuff like calling Kirk Cameron an idiot? If I do people like Godot will pounce on me and say that's the wrong language. Proxima Centauri (talk) 08:48, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

"Godot will pounce on me." The Godot cat is a mighty hunter, who likes to torment her prey. Then she bites the heads off and leaves the liver for my mom to find in the morning. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 09:09, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
Just sayin', but 17 is around the age that young misunderstood geniuses usually get a copy of Atlas Shrugged and decide that they're now adherents of John Galt. Or the equivalent. --Pere Ubu (talk) 21:15, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

This reads like a shit sandwhich[edit]

I'm all for snark, but this article is rank with all sorts of stupid little comments that somebody once thought were "cute," but which, in reality, make this article just seem lame and stupid. Anybody else up for helping me clean it up? The Absent-minded Hero (talk) 09:51, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

just do it. No need to get sanctimonious about it. Acei9 09:58, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I sometimes forget that I have the power to do things other than forget. The Absent-minded Hero (talk) 09:59, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Is there a term[edit]

for fake ex-atheists?--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ ∈)☼(∋ 12:12, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Saving Christmas quote[edit]

Is there an actual quote from Cameron saying the backlash from the movie is part of an atheist conspiracy? Because I can't find it.— Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 03:21, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
