Conservapedia:Parthian shot/BMcP

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
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.

Final Message[edit]

With initial reservation I have decided that this project is no wonder worth the effort to contribute to. I came here with the hope of finding a place where I could create a reservoir of knowledge in the areas this place was lacking, specifically in my field of knowledge, astronomy, a field that I contribute to out of sheer joy and the hopes my little contribute will somehow add to the pool of knowledge. OF course I will continue to do that but not here.

To Karajou, thank you for all the assistance and help with templates and images, it was most appreciated.

To JacobB, I held hope that our compromise would allow astronomy articles on this site to go forward, but duke of this fiefdom has decreed there will be no compromise and that even having an "Old Universe View" is forbidden. I know we had our disagreements, many of them, but I hold no ill will or bad feelings towards you. Good luck on your endeavors.

To the other admins, thanks for the help on occasion with stuff. All I can say is I know some of you are not as ideological as you appear here but must maintain that facade in order to stay in the good graces of the dictator at the top. I wish you luck and hopefully something better.

To everyone else who helped with grammar and information, thank you.

I feel that I need to exit because any scientific knowledge, facts, or subjects, no matter how well cited, or explained will always be subject to censorship for the sake of the closed-minded dogma of the owner of this site. Be warned, it doesn't matter how well researched your articles are, or how many science peer reviewed papers, if it does conform to ideological and religious views of the ruler of this site, it doesn't stay and you have to fight for every scientific fact you note.

I understand why Young Earth Creationists had reservations over the universe's age even if I didn't agree, I could at least understand, but the idea that distance, which is easily measured and can be repeated over and over, is somehow forbidden if it exceeds 6000 light years is absurd. Most creationists even fully acknowledge the size of the universe.

I blame no one, neither users nor the other admins, and even though the ideological demands by the top will demand and force many here to now condemn me using any number of slander, I will hold no ill-will against any of you, I know it is done to projects yourselves and your contributions here. I just ask, is it worth it? If so, work to change this project to something that contributes to knowledge.

As for Conservapedia, it is not a meritocracy but an oligarchy of favoritism based on kissing the toes of the owner. It will continue to limber on, but despite all the claims to the contrary and support from insignificant Youtube users, it will not challenge Wikipedia because it is not taken seriously by people or conservatism at large. Contemplate why, if not, you will live in obscurity, hidden behind Wikipedia's immense shadow, only to occasionally come out to the public eye only for the sake derision and lutz. Most of this projects hits are from those to watch to laugh, that should tell you something.

Good luck to you all, remember the universe is a beautiful and magnificent wonder full of mystery and awe, really look at it, learn about it, do not let religious ideology hold you back from discovering how amazing everything really is. Life is too precious and we get only one shot.
