You all heard of “Atheism vs. Ponies”. Now get ready for “RationalWiki vs. Amish”.

Ken descends deep enough into his RW obsessive compulsive disorder spiral to start drilling into Earth’s coreConservlogo late april.png --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my latest prototypes 09:42, 12 January 2024 (UTC)

Cool. By 2222 the US will be majority Amish. Whoover (talk) 16:14, 12 January 2024 (UTC)
Assuming the US in a recognisable form still exists.
The section 'RationalWiki and infighting' has entries from 2022.
'As a Brit' I would not say RW is left leaning. Anna Livia (talk) 16:34, 12 January 2024 (UTC)
Yeah, as a note, this "essay" is from July 2022. BobJohnson (talk) 17:17, 12 January 2024 (UTC)
Yeah, this is pretty old. He was still having his conniption fit about being banned. Fortunately he learned that nobody cares and gave up. PoorlyDrawnRockford.jpeg Rockford the Roe boop my snootpraise Oscar Wilde 20:48, 12 January 2024 (UTC)
Oh, so this was made at the same time as his watching of the coop like a hawk and praising of Muslim immigrant communities’ perpetuation of homophobia in Britain? Yeah, though at least his obsession with one GrammarCommie and everyone’s opinion on him here clearly persisted well into 2022, long after that user was disgraced, demopped and left. And with LGM, the one who got him banned, and whose femaleness he naturally couldn’t get over- whom CP had a Ken non-article about until their 3 other remaining users AfD’d it. --Goatspeed.

Once upon a time, Ken decided to write an essay about an RW editor...

And many lulz were had by all. Arcadium Trancefer (talk) 18:29, 23 January 2024 (UTC)

There's a small part of me which shall miss the KenBot when it becomes inoperable due to lack of critical updates.... KarmaPolice (talk) 20:36, 23 January 2024 (UTC)
Claims of desecularisation are news to this Brit RW contributor. Anna Livia (talk) 20:41, 23 January 2024 (UTC)
As far as missing him, there's always Fun:Ken Quote Generator, Fun:Ken article generator, and Fun:Ken Debate Challenge Generator. Bongolian (talk) 20:45, 23 January 2024 (UTC)
The flatlining in France was temporary and secularization has since continued to rise there, so he's just using outdated statistics. Chillpilled (talk) 20:53, 23 January 2024 (UTC)
KenBot uses statistics? I just thought they made them all up, like ChatGPT does when asked to provide sources for essays. KarmaPolice (talk) 21:36, 23 January 2024 (UTC)
Aside from the French thing. He points to birth rates in China. My understanding is most people in China actually follow Chinese folk religion despite the technically official status of atheism (though, it probably is true that many people there are atheist; I had some trouble finding statistics that split the folk religion believers and atheists). As for the Amish, Mormons, etc. — these groups are modernizing quicker than one might think, so extrapolating current trends in birth rates really runs into the same fallacies as stuff like "Eurabia" theory. Mormon birth rates have something like halved in the past few decades, though they're still higher than the baseline. I mean, I don't know that he will be proven wrong with time. But it's not some total certainty either way. I think there was a UN projection that the irreligious population would grow then decline, but I don't know what precisely that was based on. Chillpilled (talk) 22:08, 23 January 2024 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── At this point, I think he’s told this “lie for Jesus” so many times that he himself has begun to believe it. Methinks he’s trying to convince himself, he desperately wants the old glory days to come back while trying his level best to help his fellow nutjobs drive away those who might be sympathetic to US Christianity’s slow demise; he knows it’s dying and will be almost over here within my lifetime- and I’m 20, I say that with full confidence that it’ll happen within the next 60-70 years. And as the RW editor in question, I honestly feel flattered considering that I was inactive for a good two years, and due to college only make a few edits per day. And this is also just sad, he’s a 60-year-old man who has wasted his entire life in front of a computer monitor trolling others. Each day I look out my apartment window and see people walking dogs, riding their bikes, holding their partners’ hands and going off to parties in large groups- and I just know he isn’t one of those people. --Goatspeed.

But CR, He's on a mission to save the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA:tm: from those goddamn evil atheist librul commie cucks. He can't just abort that. Also, I wouldn't say that "he wasted his entire life in front of a computer", given that the internet became more of a thing during the 2000's. At best, he would've been 40 when he started to become an internet concern troll. Arcadium Trancefer (talk) 18:08, 24 January 2024 (UTC)

(Moved from the saloon bar) Chillpilled (talk) 18:41, 24 January 2024 (UTC)

Before the early 2000s, he probably went to upstate NY’s multitude of college campuses and was one of those angry guys over 35 everyone hates, who tell you that “only God can save you, the [religous right’s obsession of the moment]s are destroying family/society!” and held up signs saying things like “evolutionism and atheism will crumble1111!!!oneoneelventy11one!!111one!!!11!!” --Goatspeed.

Eh, I don't rule out some kind of 'Christian religious revival' hitting the UK in the future, but I'm about 95% sure it's not gonna be a 'right-wing / Dominionist / culture wars / deep malign feelings' type as espoused by the brave warrior Conservative and their ageing, dwindling and marginalised band. Most movements/ideologies change and flex with the times, but this one hasn't; still pushing the same old crap I saw back in the 90s and it's bankruptcy even more obvious now. But that cannot be true, so it's 'no, it's the children who are wrong' mentality and promises of victory around the corner due to unnamed 'deus ex machina' reasons.

Reset password

I don’t know if I’m late on this, but if you go down to Forgot your Password in the login and type in another Conservapedia User’s Username, will the user’s password actually be reset? That would be fun. New world (talk) 12:05, 28 January 2024 (UTC)

No. Of course not. The next step is that you have to enter your current password. No website could be that easy to hack. Andy's a complete dickhead but the wiki software is relatively smart. Spud (talk) 12:16, 28 January 2024 (UTC)
Oh ok. Damn. Is the thing where at "certain times of the day" you can supposedly create an account even tru? New world (talk) 12:21, 28 January 2024 (UTC)
Not any more. Years ago they had it set that accounts could not be created overnight US time, apparently in an attempt to stop non-US people creating accounts and causing massive vandalism while they were asleep. That was dropped more years ago than I can remember, at least 8 I think. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:34, 29 January 2024 (UTC)
I don't like the idea of trolling CP. Just leave them alone. We're better people than this. GeeJayKWhere all evil dwells Where every lie is true 13:03, 28 January 2024 (UTC)
But is it actually worth it? Anna Livia (talk) 17:35, 28 January 2024 (UTC)
No. It's not worth it and it's not even possible. If you want to create an account now, you have to email Andy Schlafly and ask him to create an account for you. You also have to tell him why you want to edit Conservapedia and provide two character references. (You can bet Andy would like one of those references to be from a Christian minister of some kind, the other one to be from somebody heavily involved with the Republican Party and both of them to be from men with penises.) And I'm sure 9 times out of 10 Andy wouldn't even be arsed to create an account for anyone who fit his criteria. So forget about going on CP to troll them because basically nobody's ever going to be able to create an account there ever again and it's not easy to hack. And just ignore the stupid cunts! Spud (talk) 16:07, 29 January 2024 (UTC)
And nothing of value was lost, what with RobSmith sucking Putin’s dick because he wants to put LGBT Ukrainians in concentration camps and Ken sinking so deep into his self-hatred bigotry spiral that he’s about to get torn to bits by the Roche Limit. --Goatspeed.

I am a Brit, of the female persuasion, have slight Ricardian tendencies - and I have looked at the front covers of newspapers other than the Express/Mail/Telegraph, and once read an article in the Morning Star, so I am less likely to be accepted than into the Fancy Handshakes Brigade. Anna Livia (talk) 18:55, 30 January 2024 (UTC)

Random thought I just had

Conservapedia's "most conservative song" is Beat It by Michael Jackson. Is this because it refers to their wives? — Unsigned, by: AzuraSilver / talk / contribs

Since when was anything by Michael Jackson "conservative"?! Luigifan18 (talk) 05:10, 19 February 2024 (UTC)

Revert war

A tad ironic that they squabbled over "Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction" Anna Livia (talk) 18:26, 21 February 2024 (UTC)
