Religion in Latinamerican countries

There are many pages on religion at Latinamerican countries, both in English and Spanish, that were appropiated by "religious" people who distort the data about rates in surveys or cite wrong sources. Some examples are: Religion in Dominican Republic, Religion en Colombia (in Spanish), Religion en Bolivia (in Spanish)...

Want to create an article named "Kabir God"

I want to create an article on the subject 'Kabir God'. Though an article already exists on the subject, but that presents Kabir God as merely a mystic poet. There are millions of people(followers of Saint Rampal) in India who worship him as a God, and they have reliable proofs too. I intend to present the basis beneath their faith. Kabirisgod (talk) 11:52, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Please respond this section. Can it be done on Wikipedia?

Find WP:RS which discuss that. No sources, no article. Tgeorgescu (talk) 21:26, 8 May 2018 (UTC)
If there is an article already you don't simply create a new article because you disagree with the existing one. you use neutral reliable sources, (policy as linked above) to add information to the page. for changes which are considered major or contentious you discuss it first on the article's talk page as your username suggests you are a WP:SPA and advocacy is not encouraged.

RfDs related to dystheism, misotheism

I've nominated several redirects to Dystheism and Misotheism at RfD. Your input at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2018 May 3 would be appreciated. --BDD (talk) 15:52, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Discussion of a film category

There is a discussion at Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed [1] that may be of interest to this project. Niteshift36 (talk) 13:33, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

I wonder how such a discussion can reach a formal conclusion, when no formal RfC procedure has been started.--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 13:45, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:52, 30 May 2018 (UTC)


I'm hoping someone involved in this project can help sort out what I think is a bit of a mess, spanning Wikipedias in several languages, as well as several sister projects.

The word "Pantheon" designates three different things, as better indicated in de:Pantheon than in any one place I can find on the English-language Wikipedia:

  1. An ancient Greek or Roman temple to all the gods. This is the origin of the word. I don't think we have a corresponding article.
  2. The concept described in our Pantheon (religion): the panoply of gods and or other mythical beings in a given polytheistic religion.
  3. Buildings named "pantheon" that are not necessarily pantheons in the first sense. E.g. the Panthéon in Paris, or the Stourhead Pantheon. This meaning is incidental and doesn't deserve encyclopedic treatment, but as far as I can tell, it is the only one that has a Commons category (commons:Category:Pantheons, which I've proposed renaming to 'buildings called "Pantheon"').

Until very recently the first two meanings had, confusingly, only one Wikidata item, which I've now split out to Pantheon (Q3376141) and Pantheon (Q54857987), respectively. I think the first meaning probably deserves an article in the various Wikipedias.

(I encountered this issue while trying to sort out some Commons/Wikidata issues, and this seemed the best place to bring it.) - Jmabel | Talk 22:22, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Pantheon on English Wikipedia is a disambiguation page. The German page is missing the bookseller, and various meanings in popular culture. An article on the generic concept of the structure could be made by splitting out the material specific to that topic from Pantheon (religion). bd2412 T 23:11, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
    • The German disambiguation page is de:Pantheon (Begriffsklärung), and mentions the bookseller (although they do not have an article on it) and the popular culture aspects. - Jmabel | Talk 23:52, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
    • I think splitting out the architectural topic from the theological one would be entirely good. - Jmabel | Talk 23:53, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Page Move Discussion

There is a Page move discussion going on for Rajneesh. Would anyone be interested in participating? Accesscrawl (talk) 09:37, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Embassy chapels

Hi everyone, I created a new page, Embassy chapel, that displays an interesting and underrated feature of Religion: Embassy chapels. For example, before Catholicism was legal, English Catholics were able to worship at the Embassy chapels of foreign governments, like the French, Portuguese, or Sardinian embassy. Four London churches today have roots in those embassies (Church of St Anselm and St Cecilia, St Etheldreda's Church, Church of our Lady of the Assumption and Saint Gregory, St James's, Spanish Place). The page also talks about other embassy chapels around the world (for example, protestant churches in Italy or churches in China and the Ottoman Empire), which provided religious havens to persecuted religions thanks to diplomatic immunity. I've linked a lot of resources but I don't have much time to fill in the page. Any and all help is welcome. Eccekevin (talk) 18:43, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Page move discussion

After a page merge, there is now a WP:RM discussion of moving Tanakh to Hebrew Bible occurring at Talk:Tanakh. Members of this WikiProject may be interested in participating in that discussion. power~enwiki (π, ν) 00:41, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Help in Guru Nanak controversy

Hi. There is an editor, Lepchav, who is removing information from the Gurudongmar Lake article that they consider false regarding Guru Nanak. Issue is they also are claiming that there is no trace of Guru Nanak in history, without presenting reliable sources that back up the claim, so I think there is a WP:NPOV situation going on with the removal. Could you guys please take a look at the situation as impartial editors? Thanks in advance. Thinker78 (talk) 18:59, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Five-Percent Nation

The Five-Percent_Nation#Myths_and_realities section is poorly written, and cites mostly 5-perfecent Nation sources and apologetics. It should be re-written entirely. I would like outside input on the Talk:Five-Percent_Nation#Myths_and_Realities Harizotoh9 (talk) 22:18, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
