Notes[edit]

{{efn|insert x here}} is the preferred syntax for notemaking. Carthage (talk) 18:15, 20 August 2023 (UTC)

Don't listen to them, the way you made that note is acceptable, although {{efn}} is more convenient. Plutocow (talk) 18:36, 20 August 2023 (UTC)

Your SB topic[edit]

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!
You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.

Given how you got in trouble for making death threats towards trolls, what makes you think it's a good idea to say "Those who can't (or won't) adapt to reality and morality and insist on dragging humanity backwards to barbarity... really would be better off dead. 🤣"? Yes, I know these are awful people, but insinuating massive groups of people should all die is just unacceptable. Plutocow (talk) 18:45, 24 August 2023 (UTC)

Caliphate and the Papacy[edit]

The Caliphate and the Papacy aren't really comparable beyond the most superficial comparison. The Caliph has no religious authority, that lies with the Islamic community of scholars, aka the ulama. The basis for the Caliphal authority is closer to the divine right of kings theory, since while the Caliph is held to be the successor of Muhammad he is a secular authority first and foremost (the Caliph is the successor to Muhammad in a political sense only). Islamic orthopraxy is very different from Christian orthopraxy. The Caliphate is closer to the old institution of Roman emperor, I suppose, but without the religious authority than it is to the Papacy. Carthage (talk) 23:53, 25 September 2023 (UTC)

I was making a rather superficial comparison… I neglected to add a part I had planned about the comparison being a rough one and the positions having a number of differences. Luigifan18 (talk) 00:03, 26 September 2023 (UTC)

Stealing water and bulldozing homes[edit]

Stealing water, bulldozing houses, and destroying orchards is not self defense. It's ethnic cleansing. Carthage (talk) 06:00, 29 September 2023 (UTC)

Award[edit]
