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.

August 2012[edit]


Andy: Todd Akin's comment on abortion could cost RINOs control of the Senateimg (citing a statement by the RNC chair that it could cost Republicans control of the Senate.) What? Do RINOs control the Senate? Does virtually the entire GOP Senate presence consist of RINOs now?


Andy: The RINOs cancel the first 36 hours of the GOP convention, because they cave into media bullying. Hurricane Isaac has nothing to do with it.img
His own source: "Republicans have postponed their national convention in Tampa at least a day because of concerns about Tropical Storm Isaac."


Ann Coulter, Karl Rove, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin - all filthy RINO backers,img for daring to speak up against "pro-life leader" Todd Akin.


Like the return of an old friend, (from prison), range blocks are back, baby!img Courtesy of The Swabbie.


Todd Akin is a hero standing up to media bullying.img (Also, Piers Morgan is a liberal.)


The Ice Age - according to Andy, it's just another liberal myth "to cast doubt on the Flood."img


Angry-Man strikes again! No longer able to vent his spleen at dem uppity non-male, non-WASPs, Karagoogoo decides it's perfectly okay to single out the disabledimg for a taste of that good ol' fashioned, ol' boy bigotry.


Andy kills two birds with one stoneimg. Apparently, the Sun being rounder than previously thought counts both as a counterexample to relativityimg (because he says so) and an example of Biblical Scientific Foreknowledgeimg (yes, he is actually giving credit to the Bible for describing the Sun as round).


Andy: Nations that adopted same sex marriage before 2008 won less Olympic medals than they did in the previous gamesimg.
User: Actually, looking at the six countries that meet the qualifications, the number of medals won went up slightly.img
Andy: Yeah, but if you arbitrarily remove the Netherlands and South Africa my conclusion holds.img


You heard the rumblings of it before, and you wanted to learn more...and now Andy obliges! Move over, ESPN, ace sportcaster Andy is here to tell us what sports are and are not "Joke Sports"img. Bonus points if you can spot the blatant sexism.


Hell freezes over.
Andy: "You're right, and you make the point well... Britain has done remarkably well in the past week, and some of its gold medals (e.g., Andy Murray in tennis) were nothing short of spectacular. Conservatives accept the real facts, even when (in this case) it is contrary to American bravado."img


The important part about flinging a car full of science 350 million miles across space is that it, and the scientists who made it have a capital-c Creatorimg.


User: Clint Eastwood is a Republicanimg Andy: Yeah, but he's not a Conservative Republican.img Ken: QUESTION EVOLUTION!img (Obviously oversighted quickly, but not quick enough)


In Schlafly's mind: Michael Phelps is overpromoted and only wins obscure eventsimg.
In the real world: Michael Phelps is the most successful-ever Olympic sportsman, hugely admired by his fellow competitors and a role model for thousands of young athletes. Update: Irony, thy name is Schlafly!img


Andy, July 25th: Athlete sent home from politically correct Olympics for racist tweets? BOOOOO! Luckily the USA has freedom of speech!"img
Karajou, Aug 3rd: "Man gets fired for ranting against Chick-fil-A. OUTSTANDING!!"img


No one mentions that Missy Franklin goes to a Catholic high school; it must be a liberal conspiracyimg, according to Andy.
