Purpose Wiki code Result of code
This is the preferred page format for CreationWiki's rebuttals to Talk.Origin's Responses to Creationists Claims. The code in the cell to the right contains 3 templates, which may be simultaneously copied and then pasted into a new page for editing.

Description of page items:

  • The "Claim Number", is the alphanumeric designation assigned to the specific claim by Talk.Origins. It is important that this number be placed on the response page and linked to the Talk.Origins rebuttal on the Index to Creationist Claims.
  • "The text of creationist claim", is the claim that Talk.Origins is rebutting. This text should be copied verbatim as it appears on the Talk.Origins page.
  • "The Citation or source of creationist claim", is the publication where Talk.Origins found the creationist claim.
  • The URL or webaddress of the "claim number", the "text of the claim", and the "Citation or Source of the claim" must be obtained from the Talk.Origins site.

Copy and paste the following code into your blank CreationWiki page to respond to a Talk.Origins claim.

NOTES:

  • The previous restriction of using a given template a maximum of five times on a page no longer applies (it only affected earlier versions of the wiki software).
  • The template names are case-sensitive, except for the first letter: {{return icc}} and {{Return icc}} both work, but {{return ICC}} will not.
  • Note the difference between the second and third templates: The first one has an "s": {{to quotes}}.
  • It appears that you cannot include external links within the parameter of the {{to quote}} template.

To see an actual example, CG110 has been modified to use these templates.

LINKS

As normal, appropriate terms in the articles should be linked, and linked once only. "Talk.Origins" itself is linked in the {{to quotes}} template, so there should be no need to link references to Talk.Origins.
