Talk:Andrew Dickson White

Jump to: navigation, search

The article A History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom will lengthen greatly with time, so it is inadvisable to merge it with "Andrew Dickson White," since that article will then eventually become too cumbersome. I am trying to avoid the eventual splitting out of "...Warfare of Science with Theology..." from "Andrew Dickson White" as were my previous entries in Bertrand Russell split into the separate article A History of Western Philosophy and my entries in H. L. Mencken split into Treatise on the Gods. I hope that you can appreciate my effort in attempting to stay ahead of the curve by initiating the separate article A History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom, as opposed to integrating it into "Andrew Dickson White" and then having the article split back out of "...White" by someone else again at a later date. My participation in both articles "...White" and "A History of the Warfare..." is far from complete, but will be coming to fruition in the near future.

Thank You for your consideration ELApro (talk) 2 October 2012
This would be fine if the Andrew Dickson White page had any content outside of a couple of quotes from A History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom. If those two quotes are moved to the page for the work, the author's page would have no content and then should be deleted. That is the reason for the merge tag. ~ UDScott (talk) 13:21, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Andrew Dickson White currently has 20 quotes from two of his other books. The A History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom quotes were previously moved to that article.
