More about CP
Wigocp.svg This Conservapedia-related article is of largely historical interest and is no longer the focus of RationalWiki today.
Conservapedia (and religious fundamentalism to an extent) was a major focal point in the early history of RationalWiki, but long ago ceased coming up with new ways to appall and amuse.
Our energies are now spent debunking other, fresher examples of pseudoscientific claims, authoritarianism, and deceit.
For RationalWiki's less ancient content, try the cover story articles or a random article.

2009 was a year of celebrity deaths, scandals and oddities. The United States inaugurated its first (half) black president and first Democratic president in eight years. And it was a year of hilarity on Conservapedia. Here's your year in review for 2009.


Bugler committed suicide on the first, opening the lulz for the year. Fretfulporpentine outed himself with a parthian shot that was quickly removed. Andy would be more paranoid about letting people get close to him.

2009 was also the year of mass exodus. Fox, SamHB and ElizabethK all met untimely bans. RonAbdul traded in his ability to post due to disagreements with how CP portrayed Muslims. HelpJazz found the door swiftly. TimS even helped invent new reasons for blocks. DinsdaleP drank the poison by disagreeing with Andy.

Conservapedia had plenty of science issues to resolve. NASA was an unreliable source about astrophysics.img Ed Poor denied HIV's existence.img Andy uncovers a profit motive for liberals pushing black holes.img Hermaphrodites disproved evolution.img Humans did not exist before 3500 BCE.img

With Obama's inauguration, political frothing was assured. Gun control leads to genocide. Appointing Burris to the Senate to replace Obama was racist, but rejecting him was racist. Obama was "allegedly" born in the US.img Obama and Blagojevich conspired together.img Andy declares Obama's inaugural speech to be "meaningless." Obama wants to kill foreign babies. Conservapedia institutes a Democratic Senator hitlist. Andy bussed in people to DC for a protest.

January also saw the temporary downtime of CP, with a server hardware loss. Only some minor complications arose. Due to lax backup procedures, a week's worth of updates were lost forever.

Andy held his American History Final Exam, then challenged people to get 100% on it. He also pulled random words to be part of his "Best New Conservative Words" that he abandoned later in the year. His brother Rogerimg had to keep reminding Andy that he knows jack shit about science and education.

Andy regards The Daily Showimg as crap only stupid public school students would watch, and that The Colbert Reportimg as a "dim-witted liberal program." Andy would be a guest on TCR in December.


Andy began the month calling liberals illogical, incoherent, self-centered and long-winded. His "encyclopedia" should read like newspaper articles. Obama speaks like a foreigner for using "America."img Even more unhinged came the birther nonsense.img

Andy proposed that humor did not exist before Christianity.img Any references to humor pre-Christianity must be funny to Andy or they do not count.img Andy also saw fit to rewrite Chinese history.img Feudalism worked because people did not have to commute and would homeschool their children.
