Conservapedia:Parthian shot/MexMax

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Wigocp.svg This Conservapedia-related article is of largely historical interest, and not necessarily the focus of RationalWiki today.
Conservapedia 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 religious fundamentalism and creationist claims.
For RationalWiki's less ancient content, try the cover story articles or a random article.

I think masterpieces of this kind need saving. So I have. SusanG

Main page Talk[edit]

Goodnight to you all[edit]

I've thought long and hard about whether I should do this, and why I should do it. See, I signed up to Conservapedia mostly to do this, but as time went on, I actually found myself liking some of you, in spite of myself, for the kindness you showed me. Even Andy!. Further, even people like Conservative are real people behind that, and I just can't bear to hurt real people. It's not in me.

Then I remembered something. First, a wiki-block is not a physical blow. It's barely a mental blow. Then I remembered exactly what was wrong with this site. It's funny, but my promotion is a microcosm of it. See, while I was handed edit, block, upload rights in quick succession - just because I pretended to be a creationist - real deserving people like Iduan were passed over, and I was reminded of the problem posed by the subordination of reason to emotion, of works to faith, and everything that this site symbolized, all the evil, came back to me. A few looks at Conservative's articles reminded me, too!

SO, I resolved myself. I would deal this blow, not to injure the people I'd half-come to like, but to prove a point. One cannot build a society on faith alone. One must recognize works. One must use reason. Any society, any wikiproject, lacking this foundation, is as fleeting as the sand, bound to wind up as Ozymandias. So I hope to make this point either to force you to realize it, or to jolt you into realizing the error of some of your ways. I have no pretensions that you'll stop being creationists, stop being homophobes, but there's a famous author - female, ahhh, I forget her name - but she's an early 20th century American author who believes that catharsis can only be stimulated by a shock to the system. Maybe this will be it. Maybe one night of blockage will give you pause enough to contemplate the world beyond creationism, and the intellectual blinders it straps to your face.

But probably not.

I wish everyone here luck. Most, though, I wish the young people of this site luck. You will see in the years and decades to come that the narrow worldview that has been forced on you just doesn't stand the test of time, or experience. And I hope you will come to see the great, big, wonderful world out there, complete with all of its little quirks that this website would deny - sex, homosexuality, SCIENCE, and compassion for difference. I also hope fervently for the people that believe in this site, that you can either change it or move on. I'm thinking of you Iduan. You're a great guy and you deserve better. I hope you'll forgive my infinite block on you tonight.

Good night, and good luck.

User talk: Aschlafly[edit]

I'm sorry[edit]

You were very kind to me, but there are some things I can't forgive. One of them is hatemongering, and the perpetual bitterness you have shown to those who open your eyes. May they someday succeed.User:MexMax|MexMax 01:22, 22 February 2008 (EST)

Sorry? The man is the most deceitful individual I have come across in a long time (and I work in the criminal justice system). --Horace 01:25, 22 February 2008 (EST)
I know, but he was very nice to me. Even if it was just because I pretended to be just like him, I had a hard time deciding to do this. One day I should write a tell all confessional and post it to Rat---alWiki. I just found out about you guys recently!-User:MexMax|MexMax 01:27, 22 February 2008 (EST)


Parthian Shot[edit]

Forgive me, but NOW I'm done. I promise. This may be a Parthian shot, but remember... The Parthians

won. Just ask Crassus. Goodnight & Good Luck again. Remember, Remember, the 22nd of

Febru...yes.-User:MexMax|MexMax 01:54, 22 February 2008 (EST)
