Deletion[edit]

This page reads more like a Wikipedia article on the subject. There appear to be some quotes buried in the text, and they should be the focus here, with the remaining text stripped out. Otherwise, this page should probably be deleted. ~ UDScott 11:39, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

User:C56C has replaced the encyclopedic article with a substantial quote article. As a result… This article was preserved after a vote for its deletion. See its archived VfD entry for details. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 15:49, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Anti-Semitism[edit]

There is a group of people who say the 'Protocols' are a real plan for world government, but written up as a Jewish plot ( to hide the *real* conspirators, you see). Hovind appears to have been reading literature put out by some of these people.

Now, the 'Protocols' are a notorious hoax (one of many discreditings is the book 'A Lie and a Libel'). People who put any credence in them for any reason are deluded. But this particular take on them I do not think is anti-Semitic, when you look at it, just loopy. I would recommend that the reference to Hovind's quote as 'anti-Semitic' be changed to 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion'. It is odd, I admit, as the two things are usualy the same, but the facts seem to support this change.

Someone advise me: can I change it myself without starting an edit war?

Seems to me like you're right. I renamed the section as "Conspiracy". This OK? Muad 01:20, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
This illustrates why the standard format of people articles calls for quotes to be sorted chronologically. One reason this article has a cleanup tag is because the interpretive topic headings should be removed. ~ Ningauble 20:27, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
