Editorial notes

Incoherent, lumpy, jargon-filled and not a good intro to an outsider. We need this article to be really good because we are the go-to site on Conservapedia.[dubious]

What Conservapedia needs[edit]

... is a good dose of creativity (as distinct from Creationism), regular doses of the 'more interesting, 'Er What?' and lurid' chapters of the Bible, BibleCelebrityGossip (tm), irony traps, and exposure to the inherent contradictions in their arguments, until until they get into a mirror maze and vanish/undergo spontaneous combustion. — Unsigned, by: 212.85.6.26 / talk / contribs

Stopped Clock?[edit]

I remember to have taken a look at some articles of Conservapedia. While they're pretty much terrible in both content and pictures (ie: rather short description of a large European country including to call them "socialists" and the like plus very badly chosen pictures -place in one of its towns instead of one of its capital-) the one on Dungeons & Dragons is at least quite well balanced and not full of Fundies' BS mentioned on the game's article here (maybe because of [1]. But who cares?. At least it was that way the last time I visited it)--Panzerfaust (talk) 00:23, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

That's interesting, considering the panic that roleplaying games caused in certain conservative circles back in the 80's and 90's. To some, roleplaying games were distinctly part of a plot to make kids chant black magic spells. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:26, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Yes, even here there was stuff of that kind. But not because of Satanism but of some ignorant/dishonest/both reporters instead who related a 90's crime with RPGs even if the criminal's "game" was just the result of his psichopathy and was anything but a RPG. That stigma, even if quite diminished, still lasts to this day. --Panzerfaust (talk) 00:38, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
You write "even here" — you mean, here at RationalWiki? Or some country other than the US? ^^ Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:22, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Oops, sorry. I meant other country, not US. As an aside, never mind the Ministery who's in charge about things such as education as well as professionals had later published articles defending the benefitial aspects of playing role-playing games (you mention them on the D&D article) --Panzerfaust (talk) 08:20, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

The topics game[edit]

Take the list of topics on the CP main page and read downwards (or across). See if there are any amusing combinations: on today's list there are Friedrich Nietzsche - Liberal bias; Underrated Sports Stars - Barack Hussein Obama; Presidential Election 2016 - Causes of Homosexuality; ObamaCare - Evidence for Christianity; Donald Trump - Liberal creep; Mystery:Does God Have a Sense of Humor? - Christianity.

This can also be played when skimming through the TV program schedules looking for something to watch. 82.44.143.26 (talk) 15:37, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Really PISSED at Conservapedia[edit]

Just look at their article on autism and Asperger's.

They only call autism pervasive, suggest that mercury and obesity cause it, try to link it to Aethisim and just for the icing on the messed-up cake, use it to promote homeschooling.

I don't know about you, but being on the spectrum, I find this incredibly rotten and tasteless even for Conservapedia. The Rational Gamer, WonderKirby577Let's chat! 02:21, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

Welcome to Conservapaedia, I guess? This is American Conservatism, where we aren't thin-skinned and we hate political correctness and we aren't afraid to offend people and the Mexicans are takin' our jobs and eatin' our hamburgers and takin' our jobs... and takin' our jobs. You see, I hate my boss and I hate my job but I love my country so everybody, just clap your hands, if you love our country and you love out land! Thaaats right, and if you aren't clappin' your hands, you're a terrorist, and you eat sand.
Global warming's a hoax if you hadn't already guessed. Atheism and obesity and affirmative action cause autism and birth defects. We have the science to prove it. Yeeeeepp, and that last president was an African. Not even American and we 'elected' him, but we all know it was rigged by the lib-ruls.

@Coolguy212 I didn't revert your edits, you did, you must've accidentally clicked rollback. Because I was the last person to edit the page before you did, it says "Reverted edits by Coolguy212 (talk) to last revision by Christopher" which is probably what made you think it was me.
