Religion in Latinamerican countriesEdit

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)...

Suggestion for New WikiProjectEdit

It occurs to me that Wikipedia could be helped by a new WikiProject - WikiProject Mysticism. This could help to improve Wikipedia's coverage of famous mystics, such as Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Meister Eckhart and Julian of Norwich, and famous mystics from Eastern religions, and also improve Wikipedia's coverage of scholars on mysticism, such as Evelyn Underhill or Rudolf Otto. Please let me know if there is a place I can go to on Wikipedia for suggestions for a new WikiProject. If you do not think this is a viable proposal, maybe it could be a task force in this WikiProject (WikiProject Religion). Vorbee (talk) 20:49, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

I have now made a proposal for this WikiProject at Wikipedia: WikiProject Council. Let me know if any one in WikiProject Religion would be interested in starting this new WikiProject. Many thanks, Vorbee (talk) 15:02, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

Notability guidelines for IslamEdit

We have notability guidelines for bishops in Christianity but we don’t have anything that covers similar ground in Islam. There is an increasing number of new articles created about Muslim religious figures, some notable and others not. It would be helpful to have some guidelines so that non specialist editors could judge whether the subject of an article is notable or not. I have some ideas about this but would like to work collaboratively with others interested in the same field. Is anyone interested in working on this with me? Mccapra (talk) 09:02, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

Draft: Kabir HelminskiEdit

Hi there. I would like help progressing the above draft article so that it passes Wikipedia's neutrality guidelines. I have a declared link to the subject, so a co-author with no connection to the author would be much appreciated. Kabir Helminski is a Sufi Muslim author, translator, and teacher. Many thanks!

Citations on Religious subjectsEdit

Hi guys, I'm a little unclear on what constitutes Reliable Sources and how to cite information on religious articles. Are there any policy pages explaining how to find appropriate citations for articles on religion? Would we cite religious scholars? How do you destinguish from a Reliable Source and an unreliable one. I'm not that up-to-date regarding the academic study of religion in general, so I'm looking for some information on how to write articles on it. By the way, is there any way to search just Wikipedia Policy pages? In other words I was looking for religious policy but what I ran a search all I got was normal articles. Thanks – Chrisvacc - 20:34, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Requesting wider attentionEdit

I felt article Islamic_literature is in bit of neglect so I added my note on talk page there, requesting to take note of Talk:Islamic_literature#Article_review. If possible requesting copy edit support. Suggestions for suitable reference sources at Talk:Islamic_literature is also welcome.

Posting message here too for neutrality sake

Thanks and greetings

For the interested, this is a discussion about to what extent we should use primary sources in the "plotsections" of articles concerning religious stories. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 06:43, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Articles for Creation has a new sort tool, you can see all pending related drafts here: Wikipedia:AfC sorting/Culture/Philosophy and religionEdit

Just in case there are folks here who might be interested in reviewing drafts awaiting article status that are particular to this WikiProject. If you'd like to sign up to review/approve/decline new Drafts, instructions are here. AFC Reviewers get to use really cool automated tools that make reviewing really quick and easy, and I've really enjoyed volunteering there, and I'm really digging the AFC Sorting tool so instead of having to comb through lots of articles, I can zip right to topics I'm interested in.

Self-flagellation in HinduismEdit

Can someone double-check this section: Self-flagellation#Hinduism. A new editor has made substantive changes to the section. I reverted the original changes because there was no source. The editor has added a source. I would prefer not to get too involved in the content, which is in a field I don't know much about. --David Tornheim (talk) 22:56, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

RfC on Falun GongEdit

There is a new RfC at Talk:Falun Gong#RfC on describing Falun Gong as a new religious movement. Doug Weller talk 09:36, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

RfC on the notability of the Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the UniverseEdit
