Proposal for moving to United States Dollar

Other countries use the name "dollar" for their local monetary unit. This article should be moved to reflect its specific focus on the United States Dollar. --Draper 20:06, 6 July 2007 (EDT)

Done (although not to the name you suggested) and thanks for the suggestion. Philip J. Rayment 03:58, 7 July 2007 (EDT)

Citation is Wrong

The citation used as a reference for the Masonic imagery on the dollar bill contains at least two flat-out inaccuracies (or lies, if the writer knew they were inaccurate). First, it claims that the Latin phrase "Annuit Coeptis" means "Announcing the Birth Of," which it does NOT. It means "He (God) has approved our undertaking."

Also, it states that "Novus Ordo Seclorum" means "New World Order". It does NOT. "New World Order" would be "Novus Ordo Mundi". "Novus Ordo Seclorum" means "New Order for the Ages"

I suggest that the source and the information it is used to reference be removed, unless a more accurate source can be found to provide said information.--Porthos 09:32, 30 July 2007 (EDT)

After reading even more of that site, it is really nothing more than paranoid conspiracy-theorist nonsense. It really doesn't have a place as an encyclopedic source. --Porthos 09:55, 30 July 2007 (EDT)

Having heard no objection to my judgment that the citation in question is faulty, I will delete the faulty citation and the information produced by said citation at noon tomorrow (31 July 2007) unless I am told otherwise by a sysop. Now is your time!--Porthos 00:59, 31 July 2007 (EDT)

Go ahead and remove it. It is false. Bohdan 01:02, 31 July 2007 (EDT)

The section titled 'The Design'

Maybe I'm not the smartest guy, but I don't understand a word of that paragraph. Maybe a rewording? --Leopeo 14:29, 8 January 2008 (EST)

  • Me either. Perhaps we should take it out? -danq 14:40, 8 January 2008 (EST)
It's leftover from some weird conspiracy stuff that was in the original article which has since been taken out. It no longer makes sense to keep it in there. HelpJazz 14:48, 8 January 2008 (EST)
