Quote "The contributor who nominated the article for deletion was a staunch anticreationist, who had vandalized the article several times..." Is this statement true? While I do not approve of most of the philosophy of the site, I also must say that creationwiki is dishonest at times. So, if the statement is false, what is the actual fact? — Unsigned, by: 2600:1:F1A6:119B:C11C:2EE7:6180:4DD5 / talk / contribs

So let me guess, our favorite Floridian pest has resorted to sealioning user talk pages now? Great. Oxyaena Harass 20:16, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Rogerian argument[edit]

This form of rhetoric is one that I studied in undergraduate school. I noticed that there was no article about it on RationalWiki. One of my old professors got me to love the kind of rhetoric and I put much research and asking around to start writing this article. Thanks for the interest of the Rogerian argument, it really excites me. I think it's unfortunate there's no real article on this topic yet on RationalWiki. I just wanted to thank you again for taking interest in this obscure little rhetoric technique. Zackarycw (talk) 13:57, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

@Zackarycw My pleasure. I took a second-year course in rhetoric and several formal logic courses over 20 years ago; but this was not covered and there's always more to learn! CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 14:05, 5 July 2019 (UTC)


Noticed you edited my Swedenborg article, thanks for adding that link, forgot to add it myself when writing the damn article. What are your thoughts of my work, Ozymandias Cogito? Oxyaena Harass 08:38, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

@Oxyaena You're most welcome. RutabagaWikipediaSwedenborgism is really weird, being so much like a greater parody of Christianity itself (guy says things, guy dies, others start church in name, but this time with more ghosts). It was a good piece -- I didn't want to interfere with it other than the link. You know, finding that sweet spot between helping a page and butchering it... Also, I was surrounded by sand the other day, so "Ozymandias" is fair, but I was at the lake. CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 15:13, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
