"William Lane Craig" article - logical fallacy[edit]

I saw you reverted my change to the Craig article. The argument that "looks like a logical fallacy" to you is in fact a valid application of modus tollens or "denying the consequent", not an application of the (fallacious) inference pattern affirming the consequent.

I'm not going to revert it or reply again about this. Leave the article in whatever state you like. (Sorry if it's bad form to bring this up here, I'm not familiar with wiki etiquette.)— Unsigned, by: 175.144.7.24 / talk / contribs

I'm going to post something here so that there's a date and the section will eventually get archived. Spud (talk) 12:44, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Hereditarianism[edit]

You just edited in that no genes affect intelligence, and the source given says the opposite. The claim that no genes affect intelligence is patent nonsense. Is this some kind of troll wiki? 82.132.212.58 (talk) 14:26, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

About that WIGO entry[edit]

I think the user is an atheist and thus forgot that WIGO existed. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 11:52, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

Crores[edit]

"Crore" means ten million rupees. It's an Indian numbering thing. DuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 13:17, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

@DuceMoosolini Wow! That was quick. Thanks for telling me. I thought it meant Danish krone or Czech crowns or something. Spud (talk) 13:21, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
@DuceMoosolini And I'll just point out that the meaning of "billion" in British English always used to be "million million", as opposed to the American "thousand million". But, yeah... Spud (talk) 13:56, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

Please return the article[edit]

I was collecting sources to add and came back and you deleted it. There are many sources. TDAaccount (talk) 01:06, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

@TDAaccount. I don't need to restore the article. You can just recreate it yourself. You'll get a message saying you're recreating a deleted article but it won't stop you from doing that. In future, please don't leave articles like that which make unsourced and serious accusations against living people, in main space. You should create articles that are works in progress in draft space first. Spud (talk) 05:32, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
It got moved to Draft:April LaJune. I think TDAaccount put some references in but the history is now muddled. Bongolian (talk) 05:50, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
@Bongolian Yeah. So i see. Spud (talk) 05:52, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
