My answer to the question Is the New Testament significantly corrupted from its originally intended form? was deleted today by a mod. The comments section is locked because of this, so I turn to meta. The reason given for deletion was:
Having checked the given sources, none of them are either appropriate (e.g. refer to the actual claim at all) or reliable (e.g. Answer in genesis is not considered a reliable source on the bible, since they have an obvious CoI). Removing, flag when fixed with proper references.
I gave my answer using multiple sources--citing relevant and reputable sources on the topic--to support my answer. So, then... why does skeptics.SE not recognize reputable sources on the Bible? Does that not sound like a fair question? It probably isn't, but that's what's being conveyed with this deletion. Answers in Genesis, along with other sources I cited, claim themselves to be (at a minimum) sources which are pro-Bible, and (at most) hold themselves (and are held by the communities they serve) to be reputable. They also quite typically cite multiple references themselves, allowing for further inspection (I think this is usually the idea given to support Wikipedia articles on this site).
So I ask, how is this an appropriate mode for deletion? Please consider this especially in light of the answer given here for How do I know that the information posted in this site is reliable? and the related posts below.
