Logic, Tzoran-style: We don't just believeimg something (the virgin birth in this case) is true. We know it. Why? Because "it's documented in the Bible". That elevates it from belief to fact.


After Andy gives carte blanche for parodists to post stupid 'essays' his blessings to Ken's scholarly efforts, TeacherEd reveals his latest workimg. Look familiar, anyone? Update: other parodists contributors get in on the act!img But Ken, wanting to be the sole producer of such quality work, deletes it and blocks the perpetratorimg.


The Bible says gluttony is a sin --> Christians are thin --> Atheists are fatimg. QED. Oh, also something about lesbians.


CP uses Wikileaks: Round 2. Like last time, Wikileaks is still a site full of criminal hackers and terroristsimg. Unlessimg, once again, it supports your POV. But this time, the source used hasn't been proven wr...oh.


SOURCE: 788 scientific papers were retracted from 2000 to 2010. The source says this was an impressively low retraction rate, but goes on to wonder why so many of the retracted papers involve American scientists. CP: SCIENTISTS ARE LIARS!img


CP is really callingimg the kettle black, followed by calling it Hitler.

Well, this isn't going to end wellimg


Prognostication CP style: The START treaty is unlikely to pass thanks to Republicans.img Reality: The START Treaty Cloture vote passes 67-28 and, barring direct intervention by g0D, will probably be ratified Wednesday.

And nothing says 19th century like controlling the Internetimg


After a new editor asks for helpimg, Ed "Bad Touch" Poor obliges in the only way he knowsimg.

Damn those liberals and their use of modern synonymsimg Update: Gasp! Liberalism has even infected the Conservabibleimg!


Wikileaks is a site full of criminal hackers and cyber-terroristsimg. Unlessimg it supports your POV, then it's fine. Oh, except that particular story has been proven false.


Oh, goody. Now Conservapedia is telling us that fairies are realimg. They "are thought to have reached North America unnoticed on the boats of the early colonists." Way to go, Amanda!

Shorter Andy: "It's cold today, ergo climate change is a hoax."img

Only on Conservapedia would the President visiting the troops on the battlefield be a badimg thing.img


Impotent Rage Department: With no proles left to abuse on CP, TK stokes an old grudge against the only sysop in recent history to stand up to his cretinism and bullying by replacing his signature for hersimg on the "welcome" message she left for some random user more than 21 months ago.
