Glad to see some editors writing up this article. I feel it is very important in Creationism but not much has been written on it! --Tony 05:17, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

It looks like this page is planning to be both in-depth and comprehensive. That is commendable, but the page is already 35kib, and it is clearly far from complete (five of twelve subsections are empty, and many of the rest are mainly quotes). It's probably time to start thinking about creating some sections as separate articles with only summaries of the main points here. ~ MD "Webster" Otley (talk) 00:42, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
I've been thinking about that...
That's why - at least at the moment - the Redshift Quantization section is so short. I might add a bit more to it, but I was thinking it might be better to leave it with a summary here on this page and fill out the details on the actual 'Redshift Quantization' page. Since the issue bears on more than just whether we are in a central position in the universe or not, when I update that page, I'll probably add a section concerning interpretations and include Galactocentricity as a subheading under that .
This also occurred to me regarding the 'Philosophical Issues' section which deals with the Copernican Principle. Much of that section doesn't bear on the issue of Galactocentricity per se (i.e. special location), but whether the earth is special in a general sense. I've been mulling over how to divide the contents of this section up between this page and the Copernican Principle page; it's a bit tricky since the CP & galactocentricity are almost two sides of the same coin. There might be some overlap in the contents I leave here and what I transfer to the CP page when I get around to updating it, but I'm going to try to minimize that.
Thanks for your comments guys, I appreciate it.--Wombatty 06:58, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
I think nearly all of the Philosophical issues should be moved to the page on the Copernican Principle, and merely referenced from here. I encourage you to keep at it when you get a chance, again. ~ "Webster" Otley (talk) 23:40, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
