Talk:Herodotus

From Conservapedia

Totally inadequate entry

This is actually quite a large and detailed entry, by present standards hereabouts. It needs a bit of work, certainly, but not as much as many. And thousands of important people and things don't yet have an entry at all. Might I enquire if you personally are planning to do anything about this situation? --Jeremiah4-22 16:55, 9 April 2007 (EDT)

Only if the powers that be at Conservapedia.org are serious about having a complete encyclopedia. Is one line plus a quote from the post office sufficient for the "father of history"?

So fix it, User:Oldoligarch. I don't see what's stopping you. Dpbsmith 12:21, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

If you want to see what a good article on Herodotus is go to wikipedia.org. The one here is Mickey Mouse level.

The Wikipedia article on Herodotus has a clear liberal bias. It's your decision whether you're willing to put up with that sort of thing or not... --Jeremiah4-22 14:29, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

I missed the "clear liberal bias" in the Wikipedia article. Perhaps, you could show me exactly where the "liberal bias" is.

  • ANDFLEF? Don't you think that we ought to deal with the imaginary Andflef, who Herodotus married 18 years before he was born?

Thucydides and Polybius did not write sensational histories. Herodotus wrote about the events that took place before he was born, so he had to rely heavily on oral sources.Oldoligarch 18:25, 27 June 2007 (EDT)
