Doesn't seem like parody, or at least not typical parody. I have no idea what his deal is, but it's pretty fucking hilarious. DickTurpis (talk) 20:36, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
if conservepedia had more editors like this, it would be worth it more than just our laughs. less shlafly, more charles2! did you see the edits he made to the welfare page? a civil conservative.--Brxbrx (talk) 00:16, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Wow, CP finally has an editor who writes worse than JPatt. Although, the Animal cruelty essay is truly a thing of beauty. --PsyGremlinSprich! 13:26, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
The essay on Hannity is so bizarre that I don't even know how to react. Oddly enough, though, it isn't even remotely conservative - if I understand him correctly, he wants to coin money and give it to the poor. Tetronian you're clueless 16:32, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

##  Terry Chuckarse at it again.

Japanese earthquake proves the Flood happened. Or something. It seems that in Terry's mind soil liquefaction and tsunamis how have something to do with the Flood, and not 40 days' rain. Also, in true conservative fashion, he's disabled comments on his blog, because he's a whiney-assed, thin-skinned manchild baby, who can't handle questions or criticism. --PsyGremlinTal! 11:23, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

I was about to click the link until I read that he's disabled comments; no point going there if I can't leave some good ol' redneck sycophantic comments. </troll> DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 11:52, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Huh? I at least see the option to comment with Faceboob/Yahoo/AOL, and several people have left comments. The comment section just loads a a bit later than the article itself, so maybe that threw you off? --Sid (talk) 12:02, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
This is just a truckload of stupid: "The geographical center of the Ring lies directly opposite that of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. This is no coincidence: the Ridge formed in the initial outbreak of the Global Flood, and as it did, the ocean floor opposite the Ridge caved in, forming the trenches."  Lily Inspirate me. 12:04, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
"Today's earthquake pales in comparison to the Global Flood, which featured magnitude-10-to-12 earthquakes and tsunamis of tremendous amplitude. Liquefaction on that scale is what sorted the earth's sedimentary rocks, and also sorted the fossils into their various layers." I hate reading his "column" 'cause it pays him, but that is BEAUTIFUL! 13:41, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
I thought the flood was just a lot of rain, geysers and whatnot coming out. when did world shattering earthquakes happen? --Mikalos209 (talk) 13:52, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Jesus motherfucking fuck. Is that guy for real? Are all his 'articles' like that, ie prattle on making various outlandish assertions with nothing to back them up whatsoever, mangle some basic science, then conclude that it perfectly matches the bible; and refutes the combined conclusions of hundreds of thousands of scientists in dozens of fields over hundreds of years? What a fucking grade-Alpha tool. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 16:17, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, they are. And the more baffling thing is why he allows comments at all. He has like 2 suckass pals who come on to spam their on Examiner pages and say shit like "Hrm Terry, very interesting article. As usual, spot on with the facts, old chap!" and the overwhelming majority of people just mercilessly heckling him. I wonder if it makes him feel badly to be such a goof that he seems incapable of opening his mouth without uttering the kind of rubbish that encourages people to openly ridicule him. I'd guess it's like all creationists viewing themselves as martyrs and their detractors as satanic. All that weirdo Calvinist epistemology shit about only saved people being able to access Truth™.

Heres the fucking stupidest part - Watch footage of the Japanese tsunami...see those wooden houses being blasted to bits? See those concrete and iron structures being torn from the ground and being chucked around? Now, increase the magnitude to a global event, add 10 - 12 Richter scale earthquakes and a worldwide tsunami. Into this introduce a wooden boat....see where I am going with this? Ace of Spades 20:17, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
But but "the Ark had a superior level of safety in high winds and waves compared with the other hull forms studied. The voyage limit of the Ark, estimated on the basis of modern passenger ships, criteria, revealed that it could have navigated through waves higher than 30 metres." User:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 20:34, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
I don't even know why they bother writing things like this - if you actually questioned them on the details of this they'd just fall back on Goddidit in two seconds. Tetronian you're clueless 04:04, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Liberal propoganda Ace, lies spread by atheists. goat protected the ark and all right thinking people know this to be the truth. Deny this and lose al.......... Oldusgitus (talk) 20:37, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
To argue the other side in the MR. Kent Hovind and Nephilim Free models the water rushed from below the firmament but comes down as rain. Since the earth is relatively smooth in their story the ark would have been lifted up by the rising water levels and held off of the stones below until after the land started to rise and the flood waters to lower. If a tsunami did come it could come in waves, a biblical ark could theoretically withstand a tsunami the size of that experienced in Japan and if it were parked facing straight towards the incoming wave and had the stabilizing stones in place then the relatively fragile hull of the boat would be safely on top of quite a bit of water as well away from the dangerous debris filled leading edge before it became free moving. If it were built in an area with relatively little debris and a gentle slope it might be hundreds of yards away from the edge and might have much of the water pass safely below it. I think the story is crap, I'm just not convinced that this ranks among its many many many failings. --Opcn (talk) 05:52, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Wouldn't the ark just go deep and then sink after the wave passed? An unrelated point I've never seen anyone address, wooden boats leak constantly. Someone would have to bail water out at all times even if it wasn't raining. How long doyou think someone could keep climbing up 50 cubits with buckets of water? CarlV (talk) 06:39, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Obviously they got the animals to help. They could have formed a bucket line. 212.62.5.158 (talk) 09:54, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
They don't leak that badly, 8 people could take care of a well built boat of that size. I say this as a big boat enthusiast and the son of a man who wrote a book on wooden boats ---Opcn (talk) 18:07, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Just to clarify I did some quick and dirty math and figured that the ark was roughly the same dimensions as the Edmund Fitzgerald only half as long. I know that they didn't have to bother with things like propulsion or navigation but 8 people sounds like a really small number for something that large. Especially considering ships a tenth that size required larger crews. CarlV (talk) 00:52, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
Mmm. Crewing a sailboat or even a barge of that size 24 hours a day would take a fair old crew even without the animals to care for. Oh, sorry, the animals take care of each other, don't they. In inclement weather (rain, wind, tsunamis, etc) it'd be a mammoth task. 01:02, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
The mammoths helped out during inclement weather? Ba-doom, tish! –SuspectedReplicant retire me 08:06, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
As the ark was only bobbing around like a cork with no sails it wouldn't need much crewing. However, a wooden vessel of that size would have been far from rigid so would have leaked. Of course all those animals would have required a lot of looking after, after all we're basically talking about the world's largest zoo, replete with hundreds of dinosaurs, giant sloths, mammoths, sabre-toothed tigers. How many keepers does a moderately sized zoo have? A damned sight more than 8. ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 13:09, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
You forget, the animals were all veggies back then, plus the fact that they fed off the radiated glory of Noah or something, and God kindly bunged up their various orifaces, to save Noah having to literally shovel seven kinds of shit overboard. --PsyGremlinPrata! 13:24, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
The problem with veggies is that they produce a lot more shit and tend to eat more frequently than carnivores. The whole "they were all vegetarian back then" thing also raises the issue of exactly what veggies lions and wolves consumed, because their teeth just aren't cut out for chewing the cud - I must remember that when the JWs next come knocking. ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 02:59, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
I remember reading a thing a while ago where someone worked out that to feed, muck out and water each animal on the ark would've taken about 26-27 hours a day for each person on the boat, which is, you may notice, more hours than are in a day. It's pretty annoying that anyone has to put this much thought into what is obviously a ludicrous idea! It's a goddamn giant wooden boat with at least two of every single animal on the planet on it. That the reaction of everyone on the planet to this story isn't "haha how silly" is a serious blow to my mental health. X Stickman (talk) 03:12, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Wait a motherfucking second here. "Right, MaxFletcher. Brit1909, two articles were cited, and read together they demonstrate that the dogma of earthquakes occurring at faults is simply not true. But don't expect liberals to admit that, because plate tectonics is used to pull students away from accepting the Flood." What in goat's green earth is he talking about? User:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 04:18, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
If Andy accepts plate tectonics, that means he accepts that the Earth is older than the Bible says. Hence, the only logical alternative for him is to deny the entire field of geology. Tetronian you're clueless 04:20, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

The thing that amusing me more than anything is JoJo's headline "Radiation spreading in Japan. 3d explosion damages containment vessel at nuclear plant; most workers evacuated" 3d? So you need special glasses to see it? Or did he mean '3rd'?

A typo in itself wouldn't be bad, except for the fact it's been on the front page for more than 14 hours now and Andy (who we are told does "teaching writing") came along and edited the same template and couldn't even be bothered to read what one of his other editors put. Not one of them cares for the quality of the place or what the other inmates are doing provided they aren't knocked off their personal soapboxes. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 18:18, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

##  F u k - u

With all the Japan fervour at CP I notice that Joaquin (or JMR10 to his friends) has created F u k u s h i m aimg to get round the spam filterimg so if anyone want to link to it they need to put in all the spaces. I think Scunthorpe also fell foul of the naughty word blacklist. ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 15:51, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

I remember when little Jess had 'Hajimemashite' as a part of her sig over there.

It probably doesn't affect titles, just content. However, having a "Fukushima" page that you can't link to anywhere is sort of pointless, and the filter also keeps him from making a redirect to it. H e n c e t h e s p a c e s . «-Bfa-» 01:59, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
The whole thing is c r a z y. They appear to have two almost identical articles created by Joaquin.

Deficit=revenue-outlays Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 01:32, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
When pressed on this the right usually point to the Laffer Curve - this is basically common sense. At the two extremes you either have zero taxes and therefore get no revenue or you have 100% taxes which means that nobody bothers to work and therefore you end up with no revenue; somewhere in the middle is an optimum point at which the tax rate produces the maximum revenue without being too much of a disincentive. On one side of the curve it is entirely possible to reduce taxes and get an increase in revenue; the only problem is that Laffer's back-of-napkin sketch has no scale and in the real world the optimum tax rate varies with economic conditions, the curve is not symmetrical. In conservative la-la land we are always on the side of the curve where a tax reduction generates more revenue. The counter to this is that the far-left inhabit the other side of the curve. ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 03:27, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
(ec)1)Obama did exactly what Andy&JPatt wanted him to do with tax policy
2)The tax policy directly reduced receipts (money taken in through taxes)
3)Reduced receipts no longer cover the mandatory spending
4)JPatt attacks Obama because the receipts no longer cover mandatory spending
5)JPatt is attacking his own plan as irresponsible.
6)The law of non-contradiction is now violated. --Opcn (talk) 03:34, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
The problem with Laffer is that it's worthless in the current economy because it's only looking at federal taxes. The stimulus is a good example of the situation: tax cuts made up something near 40% of the stimulus. But what happened at the state and local level? Taxes went up and offset a good deal of the benefits from the federal cuts. With continued budget shortfalls in nearly every state, spending cuts/tax hikes are on the way. You can cut fed taxes all you want but it won't do much good when it's just going to be offset at the state and local levels. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 04:00, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Karajou is a probably a lunatic. I picture Johnny as someone you'd get in a bar fight with. Andy would probably be superficially pleasant and just mind his p's and q's. Ed would be nice, but creepy. Joaquin seems like a nice old guy. Hurlbut might be a little intense and annoying, but nice. FOIA would be a creepy. Bert's probably cool. ..PJR would probably give you the shirt off his back.

I don't count it out. I know quite a few people who are friendly enough but really batshit when it comes to some issue.

Incidentally, it's really good to be able to talk about this now that all the CP sysops have stated they're not going to visit this site any more.

Remember when the princeton alum magazine interviewed Andy?

I'll bet that he is nice if you are completely deferent to him. --Opcn (talk) 23:18, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
You mean this interview? The responses are pretty funny:
"Having read the interview with Andrew Schlafly, I find his replies such total nonsense that I have to ask: Is this a leg pull?" [7]

--Night Jaguar (talk) 23:48, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
They are probably nice people if you only know them for a short time, in the long run on the other hand you might see their inner demons. Andy is probably a nice guy until you come to some issue regarding something about the people he hates - or shorter: Sports yes, politics no. Karajou probably will pee his pants when you openly come up to him and attack him verbaly - most of these people like to say they'll sue you and as power is only a click away from him at CP he likes it there. JPratt, I haven't read enough, but he comes across like one of those fanatic atheists that will slip something politically in a conversation about golf balls. Ken is hard to see, either he's a normal guy without a job releasing his stress on CP or he is just a crazy ass weirdo all the time. Ed is probably the nicest of the guys, also it has become obvious too him that he isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer and so he makes seldomly something constructive (and when it's something small), but he complains a lot, this way he is heard but doesn't hurt anything or anyone - basically a guy that needs more love then he get's. Catch him on the wrong topic and you'll get a load of creepy (see what I did there?).
I think most of them will be nice because they normally consider everybody they meet a christian, just as I consider everybody I meet an atheist until I hear different. As I live in an enviremont where 70% to 80% are atheists that works just fine. --Ullhateme (talk) 00:19, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
I imagine Andy to be the type of person who just plain won't talk about politics in real life in a non-official situation. So like in an interview, teaching a class, sure he will there. But say he's out having a drink with someone, and they get on to a topic, I think he'd be the type of person to drop it once he realises you don't agree with him, and then back home he'll write a scathing attack on liberals and upload it to CP thinking "that'll show him!". X Stickman (talk) 02:39, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
I dunno. Andy loves Orwell's quote "All issues are political issues" (ignore the context, and also, did you know Orwell was a secret conservative?). That's why even reality relativity can have a liberal bias. He politicizes EVERYTHING and I doubt he has the self-restraint from making jabs at liberals in front of others. Hell, he doesn't even seem to care/notice that he's the laughing stock of the internet, so a blank look from an acquittance probably wouldn't stop him. Since most the people he talks to are probably Christian conservatives, it wouldn't be a big problem.
But that's just my guess. Really, it's a shame we only get a tiny slice of Andy through CP. There's probably a lot of hilarious stuff that we're all missing out on. He really should have his own reality show. ConservaReality. (Oh, did you know reality shows have a liberal bias?) --Night Jaguar (talk) 03:46, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
I'd have to watch Andy's Colbert interview again, but as far as I remeber, he didn't even use the word "liberals" once. Even Andy must be dimly aware that his rants make him come across as totally unhinged, so I guess he's deliberately keeping it down when facing an audience that doesn't share his ideological convictions. And since he can't silence his opponents in real life, he'll think twice before revealing his ideas and being challenged on them. Röstigraben (talk) 06:33, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Back to original point. I meet many people from most walks of life in many different countries and most of them are superficially 'nice'. It's only when you tackle them on specific issues that you may think that they are not. Our interactions with CP editors are largely confined to these issues in a non-personal arena. I'm sure Andy is a loving husband and caring father and widely seen as pillar of the community, albeit a tad humourless. TK was largely reviled but he was looking after his aged mother so do we judge him for his rangeblocking and insincerity online or how he interacted with the real world? Also, most of us exist within groups that harbour similar values to ourselves, so within those groups we are not seen as being eccentric.

##  Karatoons

Seeing this new toon made me realize just how forced the dialogue is in all of Kara's "art". It's like he draws the picture and then tries to make the dialogue to match. If you go back and read pretty much any toon of his, it's almost exactly the same - the dialogue just doesn't sync at all with the rest of the comic. (Plus, the writing itself is so bland and stupid that it doesn't even work effectively as satire. But we knew that already.) Tetronian you're clueless 20:39, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm sure part of it is down to a desire to screw our efforts at Making Karajou funny. The early toons were filled with potential, and PsyGremlin's "Internet Dating" is easily the best parody toon ever done (bastard). The latest toons have largely been utter shit, with no real message from his side and no real way of parodying it from our side. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 20:54, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

He frequently tries to cram too many points into the one toon that's why he ends up with either over-detailed drawings or too long speech bubbles. Just too much damned anger trying to get out. Very few cartoons work with long speech bubbles.

This whole thing shows off Andy's mindset perfectly. I'm an atheist and I really don't mind saying "Saint Patrick's Day" because that's what it is - we only celebrate this day because of the Church's designation on this day as belonging to St. Patrick, and because the Irish has him as their patron saint.

##  Something fishy in the state of Oregon

This is the second timeimg that Assfly and Co. have been trumpeting this story on the CP front page. But take a look at his complaint. Doesn't it seem like there's something missing? You know, like perhaps the substance of the actual problem Joshua and his sister are having.

The facts we have are as follows:

• He's apparently been conducting research at OSU for more than 4 years. His sister for longer.
• His sister has yet to even complete a masters degree.
• He has apparently only just passed exams that enable him to actually begin a Ph.D.

To me, it sounds like he isn't getting a good research topic out of what he's doing, or perhaps isn't pushing hard enough to find one.

##  Saved for posterity

Andy is an asshatimg big surprise -Opcn (talk) 20:10, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Conservative reaction to the Libya situation has been idiotic even by their own high standards of idiocy. There's the obstinate refusal to spot the difference between W's illegal invasion of Iraq and the imposition of a no-fly zone requested by many of Libya's inhabitants and the Arab League and also sanctioned by the UN. Then there's the weird way in which Obama both managed to wait too long and act inappropriately. I think Tom Tomorrow summed it up perfectly with this cartoon. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 20:25, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
Obama has no chance on this one. He has, in some respects, played a master hand by holding off on a US reaction and thereby forcing the UN, albeit lead by France and the UK, to take a lead. France and the UK seem to have themsleves played this one quite well, making the right noises and then getting the Arab League to come on board. The fact the UN had Russia and China not voting and the Arab League in favour of the UK/French resolution will simply prove to the wing nuts that Obama is a muslim, socialist peace nic whereas bush was of course a peace loving patriot who purely co-incidentally avoided the draft and lied to enmesh his country in a hugely expensive and ultimately futile war.

I love the hypocrisy of the post below that: "US Congress, not the United Nations, should be the arbiter of whether the United States goes to war in Libya." Then again, there were the same people who basically told the rest of the world to fuck off (except for such power houses as Estonia & Guam) when they wanted to go in after Iraq's oil. Clearly Haliburton hasn't been able to conclude deals to rape the collective Libyan population, so the war is a bad thing. --PsyGremlinPraat! 09:14, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
Not to be on CP's side or anything, but really, we do not need to be intervening at any military level in this civil war; Iraq and Afghanistan is ridiculous enough. I will admit I am disappointed Congress wasn't even consulted about it. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 09:54, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
As I understand it, it's not war: it's enforcing a UN resolution.

Two things here:
How on earth is the war in Afghanistan questionable? The US is hunting down the people responsible for 9/11 and trying to weaken these terrorist organizations - there nothing questionable about it (but some tactics are questionable).
I, as a European, would say that the US should keep out of Libya - let European forces do that, we can. --Ullhateme (talk) 11:24, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
It's questionable because these things do not end well, and there has been no planning as to what the west wants to achieve militarily, or how to go about it. And starting an international war to prevent the carnage of a civil war, srsly? -- 13:35, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
After that argumentation American intervention in WW2 was questionable. I think the term "international war" overdramatizes the situation: Every war between two nations is international and it makes it sounds lika a world war, but we all know Gaddafi would be done in a week if the NATO went in there full force. --Ullhateme (talk) 16:17, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

First of all, this is not a situation like Afghanistan or Irak were change came frome the outside - this comes from the inside - god damn it, they have made it to control half of the country, parts of the military - other nations accepting that council as the official government. It looks like the people are behind them, there won't be a power vacuum as one can see that vacuum is allready filled. For the second part now: the idea that "Gaddafi being gone" isn't necessarily a good thing - there's the basic difference, I'd rather live free and poor (and maybe under constant danger of getting murdered) than under a dictatorship. I could call the opposite position cowardly but I'm not going to, because I get were the others are coming from. --Ullhateme (talk) 18:00, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
It is a peoples uprising, so I suspect that dropping a few bombs on the people killing the uprisers will help them along a bit, and maybe result in something like a new country, or maybe just lead to long civil war. I just don't want US boots on the ground, if we can avoid that we will be good. --Opcn (talk) 19:59, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
Whilst I don't go fully in to it's all about the oil, the cynic in me can't help but wonder why "we" in the "west" have intervened to help a poor oppressed people of a dictatorship in many other countries that happen to lack massive oil reserves, or those that do have said petroleum but are happy to do convoluted business with us.

Surely nobody is stupid enough to fall for this? Some people rewrite history when history is long since forgotten. Schlafly wants to rewrite it as it happens. – Nick Heer 20:34, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

I assure you people are in fact that stupid. --Opcn (talk) 20:35, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
The "Congress, not UN, must declare war" is pretty rich considering one of the arguments the chickenhawks were using before Iraq was "We're just enforcing a UN resolution that the UN won't enforce itself." Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 20:44, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
Just to play devil's advocate, I think a case can be made that to a certain extent, Obama took ownership of the thing when he decided to double down, and to escalate it through the radically increased number of drone attacks in both Afghanistan and Pakistan, when he could have done like he did in Iraq and declare partial victory and move to at least give the appearance of wrapping thigns up. He didn't start the war, but he did decide to keep fighting it in a really nasty, if not illegal way when that wasn't the only option on the table. P-Foster (talk) 20:45, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
Definitely. I think we should have been out of there a long time ago. Obama mostly just shuffled forces around into Afghanistan. Of course, there was zero criticism of Afghanistan from the right until Obama took office. Back then, the line was "It'll become a terr'ist haven if we leave! New 9/11!"

Okay, stick with me here. Innovation--like the Fosbury flop--is conservative because liberals rely on outside authority like government (especially) or professors to tell them what to think. Conservatives are not hidebound by dogma like liberals are, and are thus open minded and can think in new ways. That's what drives the free market, creates wealth, and betters humankind. P-Foster (talk) 02:09, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

"Conservatives are not hidebound by dogma like liberals are, and are thus open minded and can think in new ways. That's what drives the free market, creates wealth, and betters humankind." Conservatives would read better as anarcho-capitalists there, then. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 02:25, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Not in Andyland. Conservatives are also all about law and order, which is given by God. No room for anarchism of any sort. P-Foster (talk) 02:28, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

I remember Andy quite a ways back arguing against disambiguation pages since, like templates, he considered them ugly. I think he also connected them with WP since other encyclopedias didn't have them, and he wanted to do opposite of them regardless of how stupid it was. --Kels (talk) 04:12, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Andy's suggestion for a page title also shows that he doesn't really have a clue. It's not specifically about running a wiki, it's about organisation in general by anyone with pretensions of being an educator.  Lily Inspirate me. 07:40, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Paper encyclopædias don't need disambiguation entries as articles with the same title will be listed next to each other, sorted by year-of-birth/foundation etc. If the first article isn't the one you're after, you simply scan the article titles until you find it. MediaWiki doesn't support Next/Prev article links, so that method doesn't work, and would be stupid anyway. CS Miller (talk) 12:38, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
On the rare occasions when I've found myself wondering what CP thinks about something or other, I find their search is nearly useless. If you type in the name of an article that exists, you're stuck with that result, even if what you want should be through a disambiguation page. So you have to search for a less-accurate search term, hoping that will find it. Even then, it seems to be hit or miss. I just found myself wondering what they wrote about the Triangle Fire. I found two references to the fire, but both under a slightly different name of Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. Ideally, I should be able to search for either term and find the page. Andy needs to man up, and accept the importance of disambiguation pages. If he doesn't like it, maybe he should INNOVATE, and find a NEW, CONSERVATIVE SOLUTION. -Lardashe

I don't get it. They have in excess of 260 disambiguation pages. That's one for every 80 or so actual articles they have. There's even an official manual page on what to say on disambiguation pages. You'd think the good captain would be aware of that. Mountain Blue 22:56, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

##  wrong initials?

Is this just a stroke of bad luck for this userimg? I mean, the odds that a user makes an account on CP and isn't a vandal are slim, but this seems rather paranoid on Karajou's part--Brxbrx (talk) 07:59, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Ah, but you have to remember that once upon a time there was a junior thug, called RodWeathers, who was much loved by all the sysops, because like them, he wielded the banhammer freely, and took pleasure in abusing editors. Then he took off his mask and showed them what ignorant aresholes the sysops really are.

##  CP makes my head asplode on global warming

Not new, but skimming through their page on AGW I see this: "According to temperature reconstruction made within an Old Earth paradigm, there have been many cycles of naturally-caused global warming and cooling over many millions of years (see climate cycles)." Old Earth is an invention of evil liberal scientists, but we can use temperature data from before the Earth existed to disprove AGW! HEAD ASPLODE! Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 17:05, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Playing devil's advocat: If a hypothesis is based on an hypothesis (or theory on theory), which they probably understand it to be so, it makes sense that hypothesis 2 can be rejected if hypothesis 1 has a statement that inherits hypothesis 2 or speaks against the possibility of hypothesis 2. Although in this case it can not be excluded that global temperature change can be caused by humans once but all the other time before had a "natural" source. Or to say it easier: That Jimmy fell from the ladder 300 times before does not mean that when you start throwing stones at him before he falls for the 301 time he is naturally destined to fall all the time - the rock-throwing might still be a factor. --Ullhateme (talk) 17:35, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Saying "Spiderman 3 plays like a sci-fi version of Harry Potter. The aerial battles between Peter Parker and the villain are reminiscent of Quidditch" is a little like saying "Star Wars plays like a sci-fi version of Casablanca because both have scenes in bars with people from out of town."
Oh, and as a pedantic comic book geek, I must point out that it's "Spider-Man", not "Spiderman". MDB (talk) 10:48, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
That's such a wonderful Ed-ism for an encyclopaedia.

##  CP goes cynical

This just in from the CP newsdesk: Libya is obviously about the oilimg. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 16:12, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

This one'simg also nice, especially when contrasted with the original article. Somewhere along the way, Western leaders turned into liberals, a UN-backed intervention became an attack on Libya, and Andy decided that he'd rather side with Russia and China than with Obama.

WTF?! Guess Andy is a big believer in "the enemy of my enemy." Either that or he's playing it from the "Look, even a liberal doesn't like him" angle. Either way, the reaction to Libya is entertaining. Conservabot is shorting out. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 00:20, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
I almost wish Obama would declare himself to be 100% opposed to abortion under any and all circumstances, just to see Andy's reaction. MDB (talk) 10:51, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
What must make Andy really uncomfortable tho, is the fact that the liberal masses aren't all chanting "War! War! War!" like Andy and his cronies did, urging Dubbya on. Given his black and white view of the world, it's going to take some cognitive dissonance to realise he's on the same side and the baby-eating atheistic liberals. *sigh* I wish Rob was around, so we could hear all about Obama's Afghan war. --PsyGremlinSermā! 11:12, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

##  Simplest of experiments

After reading this from Kenimg it got me thinking. Creationist's often talk about how carnivorous animals can live quite well on all an vegetarian diets but I have never heard of them testing this idea. Surely it would be the simplest thing to test. Get a bunch of carnivorous animals, supply them with only vegetables, milk and eggs. See what happens. Even Philip Rayment couldn't deny the simplicity of this experiment. Someone should ask him...I am of course blocked. Ace of Spades 21:47, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm kinda thinking that a single carnivore would starve, while a group of carnivores would consume each other in this environment, but that is just a hypothesis.

Morrissey's cat is vegetarian. Not by choice though, I should imagine. AMassiveGay (talk) 22:39, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
I always heard that while a dog can be fed a veggie diet, cats will die if they only eat veg - they need taurine, which is only found in meat or fish. Was what I heard woo? DogP (talk) 23:21, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
I've heard the same thing, and I think it's woo. Yes, cats need taurine to survive, but commercial taurine is synthesized, so they can still be vegetarians. (ʞlɐʇ) ɹǝɯɯɐHʍoƆ 19:04, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Then it's not really a vegetarian diet imo. It's a diet with enrichments to allow carnivores to survive and such a thing would not have been possible in bibul times, ergo the cats can not have been vegetarian. There are animals that CAN live on a totally vegetarian diet without scientific enhancements, including humans like me, and there are animals that are physicaly unable to, like my little pussy cat. She HAS to eat meat (or artifically enhanced food which essentially contains a meat substitute) to survive. I do not have to and I do not. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:41, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
No you're right. I kinda went off-topic there for a second. I did mean that modern cats can technically be vegetarian, but I realize that they wouldn't be able to before synthetic taurine. I'm on too much caffeine today... (ʞlɐʇ) ɹǝɯɯɐHʍoƆ 21:27, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Have they ever explained how they think seabed flora and marina animals survived the flood? Mountain Blue 22:47, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Interesting. Though at least the part about cats needing it isn't woo - they do need it, and if they didn't eat actual meat or fish flesh, they'd have to eat prepared pet foods containing taurine, not just a bunch of old carrots that you'd slung their way, which was kind of my point. So I think I consider myself to be woo-free again. DogP (talk) 19:12, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Creationists can go and create their own vegetarian cat. First, take some cats and put them on a vegetarian diet. Breed the ones who can best handle the diet. Repeat for several generations.

The lion was raised by a theosophist, one of the tennets of theosophy is that you can intuit something and it is absolutely iron clad proof.

I can't help thinking of that aussie woo merchant who claimed she lived only on air few years ago. But who others claimed ate regularly in secret and had a kitchen full of food should anyone who did eat ever want to stop by and have a feast. Can't remember her name and can't be arsed to go find it, sorry. I suspect that had anyone done an independent autopsy on little tyke, the 'vegetarian' lion they may have found some meat in it's guts.
And I also thought that cats are unable to synthesise the protien mentioned above and have to source it from meat, the only place it exists naturally. Dog's however can live on an entirely vegetarian diet. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:52, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

It is patent bollocks that carnivores were veggies before the flood unless they have seriously mutated. They don't have the same digestive tracts nor the right teeth and feet. Also they would have had to learn the skill of how to catch prey. Even grains were not the same in ancient times, they were mere shadows of what man has developed by selective breeding. Dogs can live on a human-supplied vegetarian diet because we add fats and proteins but not in the wild. Can you imagine the pre-flood landscape with great herds of lions and wolves grazing the savannah or tundra? They're all bonkers.  Lily Inspirate me. 08:45, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Of course it's bollocks. I remember an ex girlfriend once dragged me along to a talk by ken ham at the university of Reading many years ago, it was the first I'd heard of this fucktard so I didn't really know what to expect except I knew he was a biblical literalist and ye creationist. I have never sat through 90 minutes of so much complete and utter crap in my entire existance. The best part was he was talking to graduate and post-graduate level geologists so he could not do his usual crap of 'were you there?' call and response he does with children. He had to at least try to present a gloss of scientific basis.
He failed. My ex stopped me walking out when he said t-rex was vegetarian because she wanted to stay and 'debate' with him at the end (I wanted to go spend my time usefully by getting drunk) but I did guffaw so loudly that the yec's in front of me turned round, tutted and told me to wait until I heard all the 'evidence' and that ken would convince me. He didn't. Oldusgitus (talk) 09:02, 22 March 2011 (UTC) this was probably about 15 years ago.
There's also the problem of population dynamics and nutrient cycles. No carnivores means no predators, which removes the most important check on animal population sizes. Instead, the now-carnivores would've had to consume vegetation as well, adding another burden that plant life would've had to shoulder. Such an ecosystem would most likely not have been sustainable at all, and it's totally impossible that it would've consisted of exactly the same species that we see today, carnivores and all. Not that creationists would ever let biological and ecological facts get in the way of a good theory myth, of course. Röstigraben (talk) 09:10, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
On the flip side, green iguana's, which are 100% vegetarian, will DIE if they ingest any more meat that the occasional accidental insect. Keep trying Ken. Senator Harrison (talk) 10:50, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

##  ooh Ken, that's gotta hurt.

So Andy trims downimg the Obama article, removing quite a few negative pictures, as well as all of Ken's dribbling about the treatment of his half-brother, charitable givings and social Darwinism/liberal elitism.

Same with his "it's evolutionists saying it happened; they're not proving it happened".

That's his worst cartoon ever. It implies all conservatives are creationists, and all liberals are evolutionists, which is obviously not the case. It doesn't even make any sense. SJ Debaser 19:41, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

(double ec) I could live with the "All conservatives believe X, all liberals believe Y!" view since that's par for the course at CP. But... the liberal view of "creation" is apparently that Darwin claimed that man can create life from scratch? ...what?

It makes perfect sense to me. It's implicated in the right panel that the Frankenstein-looking thing is the result of EVILution (there's a time lapse, so you don't see that the experiment started off with a single-celled Franken-prokaryote and the monster is the end result). The process of EVILution ran its course until the Frankenstein was created. If EVILution can only create a Frankenstein-thing (evil) but not man (fallen, but capacity for good), EVILution thus cannot produce good. Because good exists in the world EVILution is false and the only explanation is goddiddit (and the scientist also fails to find a way to make his Frankenstein good because Darwin is also evil and not god).

I think Karajou is going to have to swing by and parse this thing for those of us with public school educations. --Marlow (talk) 20:08, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Really is an embarrassing "toon", and one that will likely piss off conservatives who don't believe a magic hand appeared out of a cloud (in space?) to create everything. I personally like, though, the idea that the hand-in-the-sky theory is inferred to be so much more plausible. --Leotardo (talk) 20:29, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
If I understand the cartoon correctly, conservatives believe that god created the sun by pointing a finger at it, while liberals believe that Darwin created a monstrous form of humanity by pointing a chair at it. Sees perfectly understandable to me.--BobSpring is sprung! 21:30, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
On the basis that this mess is based on Frakenstein that simply means that we can add karajerk to the ever growing list of people who have not read, and do not understand, Frakenstein by Mary Shelly and have had their 'education' on the subject from a hollywood film. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:32, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Excellent point. I would bet that most of Anger Bear's literary knowledge comes from Hollywood movies. --Leotardo (talk) 13:55, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
So creationists believe that a giant finger came out of a cloud and start making light out of nowhere, while evolutionists can answer for the majority of their subject matter's history and admit not to have an opinion regarding the bits they don't have positive, observable scientific data for? Sounds about right to me. Sen (talk) 22:11, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
I honestly have no idea what is supposed to be going in Karajou's new toon. Totally beyond me. Ace of Spades 22:44, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Yep, in most of his previous offerings one could at least see the (undoubtedly ridiculous and bizarre) point he was trying to make, but this? More seriously, is the confabulation of conservative=christian (or rather YEC) non-conservative=atheist simply a CPism, or does it hold water in US politics? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 22:52, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Maybe I've got a dirty mind but is that a hand or a cock and balls? Also, the guy with the brush-cut at the back actually looks like the picture that Psy posted of Karajou.  Lily Inspirate me. 23:06, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
All this reminds me of is the YEC's typical, fundamental misunderstanding of evolution, one they perpetuate often out of ignorance, but just as often out of deliberate deceit. Many YECs, including many of the syspos at CP, know that evolution doesn't attempt to explain the origin of life, let alone the Earth or the entire universe, but they push this lie that it does anyway in order to attempt to discredit the theory in front of the gullible masses, who are ignorant of science and beholden to their dogmatism. They do this for the sake of dogma, but they do it more for bilking money from the "faithful". --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:12, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
It's a CP-ism with a grain of truth. Seems like most surveys always come down to about 50-50 evolution/creationism, but hardcore creationists tend to be conservative and YECs are hard right. However, I'd be willing to bet YECs are a small portion of creationists here and even other creationists tend to see the YECs as a bit nutty. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 23:14, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunately not. Polls have consistently found that in the US, about 40% of respondents adhere to YEC views. What Gallup labels "Creationist" is YEC, while its "Theistic Evolution" is probably the most widespread form of OEC (other belief systems do not get polled). Anyway, I also don't have a clue what Karajou's latest effort is all about. Being misunderstood is a hallmark of great artists, but not that great if you're a political cartoonist. Röstigraben (talk) 06:46, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

So once again Kajagoogoo spouts forth, illustrating not only his complete ignorance of Darwin's theory and evolution in general, but also one of the classics of English literature. Why am I not surprised. We should start compiling a list of things Karajerk doesn't understand. --PsyGremlinRunāt! 14:07, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Let's play the quote-mine and rotating attribution game:
"I at once gave up my former occupations, set down natural history and all its progeny as a deformed and abortive creation, and entertained the greatest disdain for a would-be science which could never even step within the threshold of real knowledge. In this mood of mind I betook myself to the mathematics and the branches of study appertaining to that science as being built upon secure foundations, and so worthy of my consideration." --Francis Darwin, in a letter to his sister on his conversion to credobaptism
Put this in the cp:Evolution article and or lose all credibility. Ellipsoidal (talk) 14:41, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Hmm. I've been trying to parse this, and I think I may have it, but I'm not sure, as my reasoning means that Karajou is accepting something as true that many YECs say is untrue. My thinking is that the guy on the right is supposed to be Frankenstein, who needs a lot of knowledge of biology in order to create his monster, and therefore accepts evolution, as major parts of modern biology come from understanding evolution (which is the part that contradicts what many YECs say). Therefore, this evolutionist, who is therefore liberal, is trying to find out how to deal with his own creation by reading the works of Darwin, which is where he got the knowledge of biology necessary to create the monster in the first place. He would fail, so this means the YEC, and therefore conservative, version of creation is more sensible. Of course, to sane people, that means Frankenstein's just stupid, as he would know more about his own creation than somebody who wrote about something that is only indirectly connected with this monster, if at all, so he should review his own notes, not the work of Darwin. 81.151.247.103 (talk) 15:43, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Of course, the other possibility is that Karajou simply knows absolutely nothing about evolution, biology, and liberalism, so is just randomly doodling something pulled from what could loosely be called his mind that makes no sense whatsoever to anyone who does, but is intended to make some kind of connection between evolution and liberals, and make both look silly. 81.151.247.103 (talk) 15:49, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about the huge img capture! I thought I saw capture bot recognize sections. :/ --Opcn (talk) 00:00, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
That section is comedy gold on so many levels. And wow, Ken actually burnt down Talk:Main_Page to hide his editing binge. Because fuck, preserving history is liberal, right? --Sid (talk) 11:14, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
If anything, this is the most bizarre behaviour Ken's yet displayed. The whole charade of "90 days' leave" followed by wide scale deletion of talk-pages and over-sighting comments, is not just dishonest, but smacks of something seriously wrong. Ken's become like an alcoholic, or somebody into cutting, unable to stop themselves, but trying their best to cover up and hoping that nobody notices. He's gone beyond pathetic, into pitiful. Especially as he's clearly only doing it for our benefit. --PsyGremlinSiarad! 11:45, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

##  Outing parody

I know it is bad form to point out parody but at what stage are we allowed to out it? I was looking at creating a few pages earlier, just to get a sock active tbh, and noticed a belter on one page which has been there for nearly 3 years. Is there ever a time when we can let others here know so they can join the lul's? Oldusgitus (talk) 13:52, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Many of us have no problem pointing out parody, particularly since it's indistinguishable from non-parody. --Leotardo (talk) 14:10, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I assume that everyone here, being broad minded porn surfers people know what a sybian is then? Well according to cp it is also apparently a well known brand of something else. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:19, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I don't approve of outing others' parody or discussing sockpuppetry here. I'm fairly sure I'm in the minority. User:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 14:27, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
(EC - I'll get you, Roux) Ah well, at least that's there. I see Mr Adams deleted the long-standing reference to masturbation tucked away in an innocent article. Bastard. --PsyGremlinSnakk! 14:32, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I specifically started a debate on this so that we could come to some sort of consensus or - at the very least - have some reasonably lengthy discussion to point people to instead of havinng them start a new one here. Sadly not many people got involved. ONE / TALK 15:12, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I think that it becomes more acceptable to out parody depending upon a) the influence of the person doing it at CP and b) upon the nature of the parody itself. For example, if it's a new user doing the parody, ignore it unless a sysop joins in; if the parodist has block rights or more, however, it's alright to out his parody PROVIDED he is parodying one of the sysops at CP, or the general CP culture. For example, I would never consider it alright to point out that the bromine article says that bromine is extracted from clams via 'clamscrubbification' - let CP reap the benefits of blocking every user with an ounce of knowledge who might look at the bromine article and remove it. However, it's fine to laugh about Bugler's 'Conservapedia three years on' essay. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 15:48, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
The spoof articles or jokes hidden is otherwise serious articles are nice little easter eggs for the discerning CP reader. The problem with drawing attention to them is that CP sysops watch this page & one or two of them who aren't too stupid may notice & remove the joke content. But if you don't highlight them, the joke may sit there indefinitely, unnoticed & unappreciated by anybody, so sometimes it's just too tempting to let others know about it. A further problem with having a policy against outing parody & vandalism is that we're implicitly condoning vandalising CP, which is something we as a site try not to do anymore.
