##  Long term view for a conservative encyclopedia

There were just 45 million born again Christians in the world in 1980 (James RutZ's book Mega Shift, page 45). There are now over 700 million born again Christians in the world and they are growing at a rate of 8% a year and have been doing so for a long time. [2] Most of the growth has been happening in the non western world. If the living standards rise in the rest of the world and computer usage goes up, there may be a market for a multi-lingual project for born again Christians similar to how Wikipedia has a French, German, Spanish versions. But this might not be for a while it depends on how fast computer usage rates go up. Does anyone know what the computer usage rates are for non-western countries?

By the way, maybe about 10% of Conservapedia's web traffic might come from less developed countries so as some of those countries experience a growth in born again christians (which appears to be happening in some non-westernized countries) Conservapedia will get some of that english speaking traffic. I realize that many of those people don't speak english, however.

You want to grab the niche? Then you need to really make CP the born again Christian's wiki. You have to really play up that aspect. Drop all this moderation talk and just go for the jugular of the secularist world. Take what you are doing right now Ken and double your effort, and triple the rhetoric. tmtoulouse beset 22:08, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Trent, it is not surprising that a Christianity friendly and conservative encyclopedia would have articles that secularist would take umbrage at. They are quite contrary worldviews. However, with that being said, I don't think see Conservapedia creating a "What up at RW?" article that is constantly updated. I think if you want to create a Wiki where many are fixated with a contrary wiki it is not going to be successful. The well known atheist Michael Shermer stated in Scientific American that anti something movements inevitably fail. I cite: "Anti-something movements by themselves will fail. Atheists cannot simply define themselves by what they do not believe. As Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises warned his anti-Communist colleagues in the 1950s: “An anti-something movement displays a purely negative attitude. It has no chance whatever to succeed. Its passionate diatribes virtually advertise the program they attack.” [3] I think that if RationalWiki continues to be fixated on Conservapedia and build its base of articles it will advertise CP and make it stronger. 22:32, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
"Anti something movements"? Gee uh like your Evolution article :). tmtoulouse beset 22:35, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
If you are talking about a non-English Conservapedia, that would be veeeery hard to run by Andy: How would he check for liberal bias in his precious articles if he can't read them? There would have to be several, totally trusted sysops with solid language skills before Andy even considers another language.
And then you would face a different problem: How can you expect (for example) a German "Konservapedia" to stick to US-centric views like the current CP does? Heck, "conservative" in Germany is mighty liberal by US standards, methinks.
Are you thinking of a translation project or actually localized wikis? The difference is important. --Sid 22:14, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
I still think Andy would be wisest to kick out Ken, RobS, and the rest and restart the project as a 100% homeschool project. By-homeschool-for-homeschool, so to speak. That's an original take that I haven't seen elsewhere, and if Andy was at all a competent teacher (I know, I know), he'd be able to do really interesting things with it. Maybe keep a couple of folks like Ed or whoever as "chaperones" to keep the kids on track, and maybe some guest editors with special expertise, but otherwise limit editing to the kids. That, I think, would be pretty cool. Not likely to happen, but potentially cool. --Kels 22:17, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
That certainly would be an interesting way for CP, but I figure it gets less publicity (and thus fewer opportunities for Andy to push his "Abortions cause breast cancer!" claims as mainstream), so it's not likely to happen. --Sid 22:22, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
You misunderstood I am sure Sid.........conservative imagines the world coming to edit CP in English after all its the only real language. If it was good enough for Jesus its good enough for the Chinese. tmtoulouse beset 22:17, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Possible, it's past 4am here, so I might've misinterpreted his last comment there. --Sid 22:22, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Ken's right - we've gotten too anti-CP lately. That's a bad thing, and something to get away from, but it's so damn fun. But I don't think we'll make CP stronger, and I certainly don't think that it's fair to characterize CP as anything-friendly, even Christianity-friendly. There is nothing friendly about the hate being peddled at your site. I don't know when it became family-friendly to suggest that a group of people don't deserve to be treated like people, just because of their chosen life partners. And if there's one thing you're doing to Christianity, it sure as hell isn't something positive. Should Christianity hope to become relevant (ever again), it will need to cease being reactionary, and become a force for good - you know, that "love thy neighbor" stuff, and less of the old testament garbage. Where has that gone?-αmεσ (spy) 22:37, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

AmesG, I heard about Conservapedia from a liberal. I will tell you what he said about CP in a second. Newton 22:59, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
So Mr. Mises above is correct since this wiki spends much time talking about CP. Newton 23:00, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

<-- " I don't think see Conservapedia creating a "What up at RW?" article that is constantly updated." If I had my way, and I think if Trent had his, there would be no CP crap added to this site. Although, well, some is justified by our mission statements. As in, debunking cranks and religious fundamentalism. But our focus should be on influential or prominent figures and websites, not trivial entertainment (ha-ha-ho-ho) links like CP. humanbe in 03:01, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

One has to consider that a lot of the growth of born-again Christians in the developing world is, at best, inaccurate. You need to remember that a great many of the people who convert have done so after having gotten food, medical treatment, or whatever from missionaries. My thoughts are that the vast majority of those converts are lip-sevice born-agin Christians. They play the part very well when something that they desperately need is on the line, but don't think much about their religious enlightenment away from the missionaries. --Edgerunner76 09:56, 2 October 2007 (EDT)

##  What made you become a creationist?

You said that you used to be an "evolutionist." When and why did you change?-αmεσ (spy) 21:58, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

I read creationist written material and found it compelling. If memory serves, after reading creation science books, I started to look at internet material. Newton 22:12, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
When was this? How old were you, and what did you know about evolution beforehand? And what material was it?-αmεσ (spy) 22:19, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
I prefer not to say when. However, I will tell you that I have read the recommended books section books in Conservapedia's theory of evolution article. So if you have not read any creation science material that would be the place to start. Newton 22:39, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
I'm just curious what makes someone turn away from science. Was there another factor? Are you a science major at SUNYB?-αmεσ (spy) 22:41, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
False dichotomy. I turned towards science. Science is not materialism or methodological naturalism. Newton 23:03, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
If it's science, then it won't be a problem for you to give us some experimental results, then. Come now, what scientific experiments (using scientific methodology, of course, otherwise it ain't science) support creationism? I keep asking you, and you keep dodging. --Kels 23:05, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Okay, what piqued your interest in questioning "evolutionarianism" for the first time?-αmεσ (spy) 23:16, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

AmesG, I thought the evolutionary worldview conflicted with the biblical worldview and so I asked for information regarding the origins controversy from the creation science view since I had never looked at creation science material before. I think this reasonable response when you are faced with opposing viewpoints. Newton 23:46, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

<-- "I have read the recommended books section books in Conservapedia's theory of evolution article". Of course you have, Kendoll - you frickin' wrote the section! Dumbass. humanbe in 03:03, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

## Question Two: Evidence

You make a big deal about evidence above, so how 'bout it? What experimental evidence supports creationism? What actual experiments are conducted that support things being created the way they are, what material evidence supports things like kangaroos floating to Australia, and so forth? Note that blindly quoting stuff to make "evolutionists" look bad will be taken as admission that you have no case, so please avoid that nonsense. --Kels 22:24, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Kels, what non-evolutionary books have you read in regards to origins? Newton 22:37, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Gee, I read a thing called "Genesis" (and, ironically, provide customer support for their speakers as part of my living...) and it, er, didn't convince me. humanbe in 03:06, 30 September 2007 (EDT)
DING! WRONG ANSWER! You have supplied no evidence and a logical fallacy to boot, to say nothing of trying to change the subject. Try again. --Kels 22:43, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Way to dodge the question. Tool. PFoster 22:40, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

What non-creationist books have you read?-αmεσ (spy) 22:38, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

AmesG, I was educated in the public school and public university system. Evolution material was even brought into my Western Civilization class but I of course told him that it wasn't history. :) The history professor and I did not get into a heated debate about it and kept it very cordial. Other than that I will not tell you what evolutionary material I examined. I like to keep the opposition guessing. :) However, we do know that I have read Scientific American material as I quote it in the CP Charles Darwin article and I just quoted Michael Shermer from Scientific American in a previous post here. :) Newton 22:51, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
You only quote evolutionary literature when it's convenient for you. --transResident Transfanform!
I like to keep the opposition guessing.
Yeah, because to you, this isn't REALLY about trying to find 'scientific truth' or any similar such self-aggrandizing bull, it's just about making sure Your Team Wins. --Gulik 23:27, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Where's that evidence, Ken? For extra credit, how can you say that Hitler, Stalin, and any number of other huge, awful things were influenced by evolutionary theory, and on the other say it's not suitable for a history class? That's ridiculous, and it makes it very hard to take you seriously. --Kels 23:03, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Kels, I said man's supposed evolutionary past is not fitting for a western civ class although the effect of the evolutionary hypothesis upon history certainly is. The award winning historian David Hackett Fisher says historical investigations are probabilistic and the evolutionary hypothesis is so contrary to the evidence it is not plausible. CP's TOE article with its attendant cited material clearly shows this. Newton 23:23, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Yes it is. If it happened in the past, it's history. --Gulik 23:27, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Well, technically history is about stuff that's recorded. Otherwise it's prehistory. But prehistory is usually covered in history classes, so it would be a bit pedantic so not ridiculous to argue that it's better kept to science classes than history. Point to Ken, I suppose, although no points for failing (again) to provide those experiments and evidence. --Kels 23:31, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Mutations are certainly experimental evidence for creation science as the mutations show that macroevolution cannot happen. [4] Also, Swedish geneticist, Dr. Heribert Nilsson, Professor of Botany at the University of Lund in Sweden, stated: "My attempts to demonstrate Evolution by an experiment carried on for more than 40 years have completely failed. At least, I should hardly be accused of having started from a preconceived antievolutionary standpoint."[5] Newton 23:59, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Dude, it's rather obvious that we (you and I) are now from different species. Or at least I hope so. I surely hope we never get the chance to interbreed... humanbe in 03:09, 30 September 2007 (EDT)
That is rather non-sensical. If you truly believe evolution fails to describe life, then you need to come up with more plausible theory that has more evidence. Unfortunately, as the paragraph above shows, you have no actual knowledge of science.--PalMD-Oy, mein tukhas! 00:01, 30 September 2007 (EDT)
Even more so, it doesn't seem to contain any actual evidence, but just carries on in the same manner as Ken's usual rantage. (1) Evolution is bad, mm'kay. (2) Copious quotes attacking the credibility of evolution supporters. (3) Repetition of canard that if we don't know every moment of the fossil record then there's room for magical events. (4) Conclusion that it must have been God after all. Again, it's "evolution is wrong" rather than "Creationism is right" with no actual experiments performed. It's all thought experiments, like the Flat Earth Society was famous for. Sorry Ken, but you fail. --Kels 00:08, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

Just because you got utterly pwned in multiple arguments at once is no reason for an intellectually honest person, such as you claim to be, to shut down the debate. --23:15, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

##  How I found out about Conservapedia! Anti-Conservapedia messages do advertise Conservapedia!

In a previous section I said that anti-movements fail and advertise their opponents. I cited Mr. Mises who was cited by Mr. Michael Shermer in Scientific American.

Guess what? Apparently wikipedia is far, far too liberal. So some courageous, patriotic Christians are going to create their own version of wikipedia, entitled conservapedia.

Why is wikipedia so liberal and godless? Here are some reasons they cite.

1. Wikipedia cites many dates using C.E. and not A.D. C.E. is anti-christian. 2. Wikipedia contains articles on trivia, such as movies, T.V. shows and the like. 3. Wikipedia doesn't contain an article about elementary proofs (Elementary proofs don't use complex numbers).

4. Wikipedia often uses foreign spelling of words, even though most english speaking users are American. Conservapedia of course, is pro-American, so it doesn't use British spellings.

5.(Summing up several points) Christianity deserves more credit than wikipedia gives it. Those heathens!

6. (The usual ID rant) Articles and edits that include "facts

On his second post he wrote this:

The link to conservapedia, is simply conservapedia.com.

The specific link to their problems with Wikipedia is:

Wow, you wrote that all yourself? You should be embarrassed.
1. Who cares how dates are ref'd, my preference would be the oldest calendar, which I believe is Chinese.
2. Wow, an encyclopedia with "trivia". Tonight I read all about pro basketball, and Pedro Martinez. Yup, trivia. But well written, footnoted and informative.
3. Huh? Bet it does now, you dumb ass.
4. Most English speakers are not American. Dumbass.
5. Chrtistianity? Why? Oooh, nice book ya got there... to bad half of it was written by a freaked out homophobic idiot.
6. Wha...? Maybe you got edited badly, but, u,, that isn't even a sentence.
And, to wrap up, RW isn't an "anti" movement. It's a "pro" movement. Pro-science, pro-rational, pro-evidence, etc. Eh, too bored to rip you more excretory orifices, humanbe in 04:57, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

## Troll feeding

While it may be an enjoyable weekend activity, it is unfortunately a rhetorical exercise at best. The mindset of creationists is not capable of understanding science without being broken down and rebuilt.

For example, the focus on individuals is a very religious, not scientific idea. Scientists are not "Darwinists", "Galileists", "Capericists", "Einsteinians", "Bohrites" or anything else. They are "physicists" (study physics, no matter who writes about it), "biologists" (no matter whose name is attached to a particular theory).

Creationists seem to think that we, like they, are lulled into a blissful ignorance by charismatic leaders. If teaching and doing science were as easy as preaching, we'd by liviin' large on planet Mars.--PalMD-Oy, mein tukhas! 23:59, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Palm, I cite the following: "Yet according to Professor Stephen Jay Gould, there really is a genuinely religious dimension, of sorts, to this matter:"... all theories [of natural selection] cite God in their support, and ... Darwin comes close to this status among evolutionary biologists ..."2 Given that Gould made his observation back in 1978, it is worth noting that time has done nothing to moderate this view. As Michael White put it, in 2002: "Of course today, for biologists, Darwin is second only to God, and for many he may rank still higher."3 [6] I would point out that Dawkins and Gould certainly have or had their followers too. I cannot think of any creation scientist have had such sway over the creation science community. Granted some kind words were said about Dr. Morris when he passed away but nobody went to the extremes given above as cited in regards to the evolutionary community. Newton 00:17, 30 September 2007 (EDT)
I think that quote's an uncommon. Which set did you get it from? --Gulik 01:55, 30 September 2007 (EDT)
You are missing the point, probably because you are consumed by that mindset. You make my point for me by citing individual scientists. If you were to study any field in science, you could do so without referring to a particular scientists name (except that for those of us interested in history of science, it's invaluable). The ideas are primary, not the people who speak them.--PalMD-Oy, mein tukhas! 00:20, 30 September 2007 (EDT)
I've never seen such a blankly blind response to an assertion as Kendoll's to yours, Doc. It's not even literate. I have no idea what he is talking about. humanbe in 04:59, 30 September 2007 (EDT)
Still, there is the small matter of the Kuhnian paradigm shifts. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 10:17, 30 September 2007 (EDT)
 This user tries not to feed trolls, but does "play" sometimes.

Tsk, tsk. The quote may be FROM individual scientists, BUT they are ABOUT the scientific community as a whole. (Whether they are accurate or not is something else again.) And the scientific community acts on the basis of whatever the dominant members chose to believe at any given time - NOT, as this claim naively suggests, on the basis of absolute objectivity. (Pure pragmatism - you argue with your boss, you don't get promotion, choice projects, etc.) There's also the rather crucial point that absolute objectivity is a myth. In practise people, including scientists, usually make their decisions, judgements, etc. on the basis of "gut feelings." Rationality only comes in at the justification stage.

## Just Rewards

Well, I'm gonna cut out, since it's late. But before I go, I want to give credit where it's due to Ken/Conservative/Newton/whatever the hell other names he goes by.

##  No errors in your evolution "article"?

I posted this bit of snark in WIGO. Ken, while it is true that no-one has pointed you to a "single" error in your article - in fact, we have pointed to numerous errors, not a single error - you cannot begin to suggest that just because you ignore, devalue, and block off all criticism, that your arguments are unassailable. That's circular: "My arguments are correct, therefore all criticism is unfounded bias. Therefore, there is no non-biased criticism of my arguments. It follows that my arguments are correct." What the hell? Finally, since your little essay isn't so much an encyclopedic recitation of facts, as an agglomeration of quotes (mutated, cut, pasted, and perverted from their original nature to serve your needs like some horrible zombie-quote) interspersed with opinion, the only error per se will naturally be in your quote-mines (which you refuse to recognize) and your opinions (which you do not allow to be countered). Quote errors have been pointed out to you numerous times. Erroneous conclusory statements have also been pointed out to you, day in day out, for nearly six months. To say that there is "no criticism" is the plainest, most bald-faced lie that I have ever seen.-αmεσ (spy) 15:39, 1 October 2007 (EDT)

As I recall, the man himself said, "You cannot lie about something that never happened." So to him, nothing at all he's said is in error, and instead all criticism is unsubstantiated. --Kels 16:27, 1 October 2007 (EDT)

##  How's that Atheism article?

So, Mr Demeyer, when I was in kindergarten, my mommy taught me the difference between positive attention and negative attention. For example, in kindergarten terms, the latter occurs when you beat up a kid and get sent to the principal's office, while the former occurs when you do well on a test, for example. Let's fast forward a couple decades. Positive attention is when you write something that people are interested in, and think is impressive - like a peer reviewed science article! But negative attention is when you write something, and people mock you for it. Do you follow? So tell me whether you think that you've gotten positive, or negative attention from your Google rank boosts. I'll wait.-αmεσ (spy) 20:19, 19 February 2008 (EST)

Ken, what do you think of this? It certainly is concise. --Edgerunner76 07:42, 20 February 2008 (EST)
AmesG, I certainly don't want to say anything bad about your momma. However, if your momma never told you the maxim mentioned in this video I think she should should have. The reason I say this is because you merely have a fraction of the data as can be seen here I will further add that two prominent Christian organizations link to the Conservapedia atheism article from their websites. Perhaps you should go on a "internet Easter egg hunt" and find them because I am afraid your current modus operandi will likely not reveal them.  :) Newton 16:24, 12 January 2009 (EST)

In regards to gentlemen at another site and homosexuality, it has been shown conclusively that "other sites" are a euphemism for dangerous, degrading, and offensive to our Lord behaviors of a possibly deviant nature. human 21:12, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

Ken, do you really think the fact that we hadn't replied to you meant we agreed? Sigh, I know you just said that to piss me off, so enough said.
As to the "look how much traffic I'm bringing!" thing... did you ever think that it's negative traffic? Remember the liberal blogswarm that occurred when the top 10 CP articles were all gay-related, a ton of people came to mock you, and a simple "who's linking what" analysis would reveal that. They come to laugh, not to love. Sad but true.-αmεσ (spy) 21:21, 15 April 2008 (EDT)
Quoting his own edit comment: "The other place drives traffic to CP." So yeah, he knows. But stats are stats. So if a clickbot gives an article a million views, then that article has a million views.
Also, Ken, we don't dedicate a WIGO to each of your ramblings, sorry. But I might whip one up about the New Guy pwning you into locking your talk page. --Sid 21:25, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

The secret of comedy is timing, Ken. The last time, we were all over your announcements for the lulz, and they were honestly hilarious. But this time, well...it's been done. And frankly, a little pathetic. So we've gone from the class clown who thinks everyone likes him for himself and not his antics to making fun of the kids from the "special class". And that's just sad. --Kels 22:51, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

The secret of drama is coming, Ken. The first time, we were all over your pronouncements for the grotesquery, and they honestly grotesque. But last time, well, it's yet to be given a shit about.

## Memory hole-in-one

From USER:C's talk page:

==Conservapedia stats on the site that must not be named==

I have updated them according to the source you have so kindly provided. Contrary to "popular" belief, these edits will not be reverted or result in someone being blocked, so next time feel more than welcome to make the appropriate changes. StatsMsn 22:15, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

It's pity it took a public shaming for it to happen, but your notice regarding the change has been duly noted. Conservative 22:27, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
I see there is no footnote in regards to the aforementioned edit at that website. Not surprising. It appears the fallacy of exclusion is still alive and well in regards to liberalism. It appears as if you don't want your readers to see the most recent climb in Conservapedia's alexa rank. Get back to me when you have the guts to provide a footnote to Alexa regarding Conservapedia. I could carve out of a banana someone with more backbone than the irrational liberals at that website who are disturbed by the truth and are trying to bury their head in the proverbial sand. :) Conservative 22:38, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
What type of footnote would you desire? Please post the wording of one here, on my talk page, or feel free to add it into the article yourself. Also the reason these stats have no been added earlier is not because some people wish to hide the truth, but instead because the page has been largely forgotten by those who monitor Alexa (the last time the site stats appear to have had a major update was in January). Again, I extend a welcome to you to correct any information you perceive to be false or misleading. StatsMsn 22:43, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
StatsMsn, Just do it. I tire of your liberal insincerity. Provide a footnote/link to Alexa in regards to your edit using a link to an appropriate Alexa graph. Conservative 22:48, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
I am only here to help you and this site, trying to order me to do something and using phrases such as "liberal insincerity" is not assisting this process. Another user has posted a footnote, is this to your liking? If not I would be more than happy to change it, but you would need to provide me with a more appropriate wording, as I am not sure exactly what you're after. Again, please feel free to edit the page yourself, you will not be reverted without discussion, nor will you be blocked. StatsMsn 22:55, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
The site in question is a pathetic joke. Do what you will. I don't plan on looking at the website for a long while and perhaps never again. I don't know why I even bothered looking at the edit without the footnote and I don't plan on pulling teeth regarding getting an appropriate footnote/link. Conservative 23:09, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
If it's a pathetic joke you seem to spend quite a bit of time talking to it and complaining about its statistics. We are more than welcome to accommodate any changes you propose, you will not have to pull any teeth, merely post here what you believe the footnote should say and I will add it to the article. Otherwise, until next time you have a complaint, so long. StatsMsn 23:20, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
Please don't delete my comments StatsMsn. If I want to taunt this clown, I will. ~ WorldEnterprise 23:24, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

## Red Telephone

Ken, we've catered to the needs of our Special Relationship and have opened a Red Telephone Hotline for you to use when you wish to speak with the Gentlemen At Another Website.

## A Possible Solution for This Increasingly Silly Red Telephone "Gentleman" Business, Conservative

Would you just give that up and post here instead if we promised not to post... mean things on your talk page? You'd get less awkward questions from other editors there. The only advantage of your current sytem is that you never have to read the replies in direct promixity to the message, and I think we could achieve just by refraining from responding to you on the page you would post on here.

If you ever log in at RationalWiki, you'll see this message, so tell us what you think. 206.248.159.216 16:58, 4 May 2008 (EDT)

Ken, if you put your pronouncements on subpages of your user page here we can banter on their talk pages, which is much simpler than trying to "discuss" these things via TWIGO. Most of us can't, you know, discuss these matters of great importance on CP with you... human 17:12, 4 May 2008 (EDT)

##  Your "challenge" to Austin Cline

If course Cline can't "effectively respond" to your ranting on Conservapedia--you'd just ban him if he did. --Gulik 23:47, 22 May 2008 (EDT)

I doubt Cline's even ever heard of your article, Ken (unless you've emailed him to harass him about it recently). Why should he care, when nobody else does? I suppose if he did take the time to write out some sort of refutation (or even mention you), he'd likely also write up a post about it. Then, seeing as his blog is apparently more popular than yours, keen readers would spill on over through the link, and you'd have a fresh new influx of attention (read: mockery). Because all press is good press, amirite? Ken, your plans are paper thin and soggy as a wet tissue. UchihaKATON! 00:07, 23 May 2008 (EDT)

I didn't know that you actually copied and pasted from the Kenquote template. Stupid wisest Hoover! 10:41, 14 April 2009 (EDT)
Gentlemen! I will feast your precious encyclopedia, enabling me to destroy atheism on the internet. You should all be cruising over Operation mug, which will likely give Conservapedia a top result on a certain search engine starting with G.

Gentleman Anonymous User,

I would not be surprised to find that your comments in regards to the death of Darwinism on the internet are increasingly disappointing. As far as Penn Jillette and uncharitableness, you ignore the fact that the flow of visitors to the Conservapedia theory of evolution article is respectable and has been respectable. In fact, by the latter part of next week, it is likely Atheism will have lost all vestiges of credibility. :) :) :)

Rest assured, Operation Pamplona and Oily Turnpikes is gathering steam!!! Beware the Ides of March!

Sincerely,

My favourite CP article is cp:Linux. I look forward to it being in the top 10 at Google. I'd never be able to find it otherwise. Bondurant 10:48, 14 April 2009 (EDT)

##  Some additional good news!

Please tell AmesG to tell Dawkins that CP now ranks in the top 10 for the search Richard Dawkins at both Yahoo and MSN. I am going to put in some additional information into the Richard Dawkins article which you are going to be quite fond of.  :) Also, I am sure you would love it if a certain CP article beginnning with an E ranks in the top 10 for a certain search beginning with an E at a search engine beginning with a G. :) The public's confidence in liberal pseudoscience is diminishing and will likely continue to do so whether you choose to believe this will happen or not.[7] Newton 10:59, 14 April 2009 (EDT)

The article already ranks in the top 10 at MSN and Yahoo. AmesG, please be sure to tell tell a certain gentleman the good news. Newton 11:11, 14 April 2009 (EDT)
