The sentence "Ninja's mother is half-Egyptian, half-Nigerian and while not a doctor herself trains doctors.[6]" is not stable and tends to decay to an untrue state.

The phrase "Ninja's mother is half-Egyptian, half-Nigerian and while not a doctor herself trains doctors.[6]" in the main article has three states.

Two of the states are unstable and decay to the stable state.
Two of the states are true and one of them is false.
Both true states are unstable.
Group editing dynamics tends to drive "What Wikipedia Says" to the untrue state.

The three states I have identified are:

State 1: "Ninja's mother is half-Egyptian, half-Nigerian and while not a doctor herself trains doctors.[6]"
State 2: "Ninja's mother is half-Egyptian, half-Nigerian and trains doctors.[6]"
State 3: "Ninja's mother is half-Egyptian, half-Nigerian and and is a doctor.[6]"

State 1 tends to decay into State 2.

If left in State 2, State 2 then tends to decay to State 3.

The half life of each of these decays is about one month.

State 3 is stable i.e. once the wiki arrives in State 3 it will stay there unless someone restores it to State 1.

Factual Accuracy

In my work on Wikipedia, I have found that being "factually accurate" is a necessary condition for the article being true, however it is not a sufficient condition to guarantee truth.
