First DC, now Maine[edit]

Poor Andy. I think his head may explode. Maine Governor has decided that Civil Unions are *not* "equal", and he will press for full gay marriage in Maine. And lost religious bigots everywhere are yelling and screaming. Watch 1/2 of DOMA fall within months, by the way, as Scalia performs some of the most amazing feats of contortion to some how justify the Federal Government *defining* marriage, despite his long standing support of "State's Rights". heheh--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot"«Poetry involves the mysteries of the irrational perceived through rational words.

Homeschooler vs Patriot Act[edit]

Wonder whether conservapedia will cover this: homeschooled kid hauled away by 10 armed FBI agent under the patriot act(how do I embed youtube? ¯\(º_o)/¯ ). If they do, I bet the Patriot Act suddenly turned into a communist rule under Obama. In all fairness though, the son does look like a douche.

Extra lulz: The mom said that someone stole her son's IP address and made crank calls to the internet. lolwut? --GTac 18:31, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Is this CP's first "win"? Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? 18:33, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
I must have missed the bit about him being a homeschooler do you have further info? Also his mother is obviously an atheistic liberal as she doesn't believe in guns. Redchuck.gif Генгисpillaging 18:41, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Hmm. I suppose it is technically possible for someone to have spoofed his IP address then made the threats - but why go to that trouble? Using a proxy service would be far easier. Personally, I rather suspect the son did make the threats, but denied that to his mom. However, FBI agents using the Patriot Act to cart away a 16-year-old for mouthing off on the internet is a tad excessive, to make a rather large understatement. Zmidponk 18:55, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

On homeschooling - [1] though thats a blog, so take of it what you will. [2] is from Associated Content, which looks a bit more reliable (like an actual news article). [3] Worldnet daily leads with the homeschooled statement. --Shagie 19:01, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm going to pull the handbrake:

The boy’s mother, Annette Lundeby, has even acknowledged in interviews that her son has been formally charged, has a court-appointed attorney, and has already made several appearances in front of a judge. No military tribunals here. On Alex Jones, Lundeby seemed to more-or-less admit that the USA PATRIOT connection was something she dreamed up on her own.

I haven't looked deeper into this (because it's fucking late), but maybe people can work from here before we all just repeat Patriot Act claims. --Sid 01:23, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Daniel1212, homosexual misinterpretation. Also, am I the only one who finds Terry's obsession with Atlas Shrugged hilarious?

I think Andy's singular obsession is a lot wider than this. The "OBAMA IS A MUSLIM!" thing was just one of his numerous fads, kinda like his obsessions with Lenski, Dawkins, that Viking dude who discredited Christianity by creating a settlement in the US before Columbus, etc. etc. etc. --Sid 01:27, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

ToastToastand marmite 01:59, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

What is with blocking unused accounts? What can it possibly accomplish? PubliusTalk 02:25, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
That is a good question. ToastToastand marmite 02:40, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Pretty simple, really. With fewer and fewer editors, TK's gotta block somebody. Z3rotalk 03:54, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
It's preemptive. The probably see it as a security concern, having tons of unused accounts with presumably stupid-simple passwords is just inviting a security breach (even if there is nothing to really secure). Neveruse513 13:25, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Andy saying something good about Ron Paul?[edit]

Did Andy just say something good about someone who is not a social conservative? While Paul's foreign policy was stupid his domestic policy (i.e. if it's not in the Constitution the Fed doesn't do it) was great and against everything Andy stands for since you can't ban gay marriage (the Constitution just says the states have to honor contract made in other states) and you can't ban abortion (the Constitution doesn't talk about kids or pregnant ladies at all)--BoredCPer 02:47, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

"the Constitution just says the states have to honor contract made in other states"? Then what the hell is DOMA? Unless, then, somehow people get away with saying "Marriage is not a form of contract under any circumstances". Thieh 03:19, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Congress can pass unconstitutional laws - it takes a SCOTUS case to get them declared as such and nullified, though. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:46, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
And, as I understand it, you can't challenge the law unless you have standing. So you can't challenge DOMA unless your marriage isn't recognized by another state. Which means you have to have a marriage in the first place - a civil union wouldn't give you standing. That said, there is a current challenge to DOMA making its way through the courts. I believe it's challenging the federal benefits to federal employees in legal gay marriages. --Too tired to log in 04:33, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
And to add another twist, if the "State" yields in a lower court (refusing to appeal), it doesn't get SCOTUS testing. States often (?) do this to maintain unconstitutional laws, as long as they can get away with it, anyway. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:16, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Librul Textbook Errors[edit]

Could someone point me to somewhere that explains what the Fox News talking head was trying to say? Heinkel Embryos? DNA and tree of life? Jorge 04:59, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Hey, idiot, learn how to spell Haeckel and maybe there'll be a handy WP article! Jorge 05:28, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Um, yeah, thanks for saving me the trouble of working the phrasing ;) ħumanUser talk:Human 09:10, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Casey LuskinIdiot savant and others like him use Haeckel's embryos as proof that evolution is being taught with errors. Haeckel's embryos aren't fraudulent, but they are misrepresentations; they're drawings made over a century ago of embryos as seen through a microscope, and exaggerated so that the embryos look more similar than they are. These days, textbook editors now use real scanned imagery of embryos in the different stages to show that they are still similar, just not as cleanly similar as Haeckel made them out to be.
Luskin's also part of the Discovery Institute. When he says they don't want creationism taught in schools, he's lying through his teeth. He and his organization want Intelligent Design taught in schools, which is indeed creationism.--Irrational Atheist 11:35, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
The tree of life bullshit is probably an attack on Linnaean taxonomy, which is still widely used (as opposed to phylogenetic taxonomy). With my limited understanding, I'd say Linnaean taxonomy is wrong like Newton's law of gravitation is wrong. But scientists do say sensational things about Linnaean taxonomy being turned on it's head, but they're changes high schoolers probably wouldn't get close to understanding. Neveruse513 13:23, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Scientist: The 'Tree of Life' is a completely inadequate model because everything is too neat and linear. It's like trying to apply Newton's approximations on a quantum level.
Discovery Institute: A scientist has told us the 'Tree of Life' is "completely inadequate". As you know, this tree is the crux of all evolutionary theory and the entire hypothesis is now in shambles.Shangrala 14:00, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
This video is ridiculous. Does Fox even pretend to be non-partisan even more? The idea of letting a crank from the Discovery Institute speak unopposed is absurd. I love the multiple lies and distortions: ID goons aren't pushing creationism. Lie. Cdesign proponentsists, anyone? ID goons don't oppose teaching evolution. Lie. Darwin didn't know about HGT and work it into his tree of life, and thus evolution is disproven. Distortion. Corry 15:12, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Fox News hasn't pretended to be "non-partisan" since...what? Midway through Clinton's FIRST term? --Gulik 18:38, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Uh, Fair and Balanced? We Report, You Decide? Bil08 20:09, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Holy shit this is funny...New Scientist calls out the cretards grasping at straws. From the article Luskin cites in his Faux News interview ("Darwin was Wrong"): "As we celebrate the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth, we await a third revolution that will see biology changed and strengthened. None of this should give succour to creationists, whose blinkered universe is doubtless already buzzing with the news that "New Scientist has announced Darwin was wrong". Expect to find excerpts ripped out of context and presented as evidence that biologists are deserting the theory of evolution en masse. They are not." Haha. — Unsigned, by: Neveruse513 / talk / contribs 03:39, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Assume she's been accepted for Princeton with a forecast graduation date of 2013? ToastToastand marmite 09:13, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
EC She's going to Princeton, whether on her own skills or Grandmommy's name. Class of 2013 means she is enrolled this coming fall, 2009. Good for her, and I hope she makes it on her own without the endless Sorority exam and essay files, and "gee did you see her last name". Fuck. We saw her idiotic edits to something on CP lately. She's just the female version of GWB. I'm glad our friend Kettleticket is free of her "feminine" clutches. ħumanUser talk:Human 09:16, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Also, it's her Daddy's alma mater (engineering). As long as you can pay, and do OK on the SATs, it's incredibly easy to get into your parents' college. It's called being a "legacy". ħumanUser talk:Human 09:18, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
As an aside, some years ago, when California was debating getting rid of all race-based preferences in higher education admissions, an affirmative action supporter in the legislature said to an affirmative action opponent, "fine, I'll support getting rid of race based preferences... as long as we also get rid of legacy admissions." The AA opponent, unsurprisingly, did not agree. MDB 11:43, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
(EC)That's what I thought, but considered the presumption of a graduation date to be rather premature. BTW I never think of my own graduation (from a mere red-brick) as being "the class of '73".

Can someone explain to me the Ivy League? I know they're supposed to be good, but here in the UK there's a perception that as long as you're rich enough and not too stupid you can get into any of them (not sure whether we think that about Harvard, though). I know they're supposed to be Oxbridge level (or at least Harvard and Yale are) but are they actually? Also, I thought Princeton would be Addison. EddyP 10:00, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Anyone care to answer my question about the Ivy League above? -_- EddyP 12:25, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Ivy League refers to a football conference in the Northeast comprised of I think 8 or 10 private colleges and universities. They're all fabulous schools, whatever their reputations. I don't think it's at all true that you can get into them if you're rich and not too stupid. Legacy may count, but admissions are otherwise among the most highly competitive in the US. Check the US News and World Report stats for these schools - they typically accept around 10% of applicants. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 13:00, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Admittance requires high standardized test scores, as well as superb grades in high school. A little money doesn't hurt, though. Aboriginal Noise Oh, you want to hit people with garbage cans? 13:02, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
A homskollar with superb grades? No way! Neveruse513 13:10, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the answers. I only just realized they were all in the northeast of America. I checked on wikipedia, and apparently 'legacy' applicants receive an average of 160 virtual extra SAT points. Though blacks apparently get 250 virtual extra SAT points, which surprised me.
Do you think Addison could be Wheaton? That would explain Andy's rewrite of the article (not sure if he would do it for any other student, except perhaps DuncanB). EddyP 13:16, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Anyone ever wonder if the kids sound like Muppet characters too? Neveruse513 13:28, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

The Ivy League is certainly very competitive, but there are plenty of programs that rival or even surpass them. Take MIT, Cal Tech, et. al. for science and engineering, for example. And regarding legacy admissions, there are legacy admissions and there are legacy admissions. These are the schools where the really rich blue bloods go, regardless of how thick they are. Take a look at GWB getting into Yale and Harvard Business school. Daddy and Granddaddy were rich and politically important, so he didn't become a quickiemart attendant as befitting his level of aptitude.

And regarding being presumptuous about when she will graduate, that's not presumption at all in the US. In the US, and surely many other places, people are identified with their graduating class, even on their first day. Corry 15:34, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

The prestige of a school is also related to the field of study. For instance, I did a little bit of Master's Degree work at Johns Hopkins. Sounds impressive, right? Well, its impressive if I was attending the medical school. But I was attending the engineering school which, while not a bad school, isn't on the par of the med school. (And incidentally, the AssFly once worked as an engineer at the Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, where I took some classes.) MDB 15:54, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Addition to the above- I agree with not taking potshots at the kids. It's cruel and unnecessary. Corry 17:00, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

About referring to the graduation year as "presumption" - I too am a graduate of the Princeton engineering department. We refer to all classes by their years, so this fall we'll matriculate the Class of 2013. And Princeton does tend to be somewhat liberal, so I have no doubt that Phyllis will be exposed to a lot of diverse thinking. She does seem to be a clever gal - she was making good points on the macroevolution debate on CP until someone deleted them. - Cuckoo 20:09, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Poor, poor  K e n  D o l l [edit]

 K e n  D o l l 's fellow fetishist VenomFangX is less popular these days. Turns out the man living with his folks while spreading the word of his ministries has been grounded. A Youtube user has documented the fraud of VenomFangX through PayPal. Turns out the twerp was soliciting donations to buy himself happiness by promising to donate a portion of the funds to the Sick Kids Foundation. The foundation got very little of those funds, apparently. VenomFangX's parents shut down his site. PayPal turned over evidence to the authorities in VenomFangX's jurisdiction. He's had his Youtube account closed only to reopen it and start all over.

Why would a Christian post pictures of bulls chasing and tossing human beings through the air to show that the Christian Message is getting stronger? Why would a Christian post pictures of deer head trophies and equate them with atheists? Some people just have to (over-)compensate for whatever they lack, so they project an aggressive image. --Sid 10:37, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
I completely missed that scam! I did know how before that he was forced to apologize to Thunderf00t, the guy who makes awesome youtubes on evolution. Apparently VenomFangX had used deceit to spam votes and such on his youtubes and was find out when he stupidly admit it in an E-mail, not knowing that it's actually against youtube's policy and illegal. The result was this awesome youtube where he is forced to admit everything he did and apologize for it, which almost makes him cry delicious tears.
I must say though, VenomFangX is one of my favorite creationists. Everything about him is so unlikeable. His smugness, ignorance, arguing method, spoiled attitude, I even dislike his very face. This makes it so awesome when he fails time and time again. --GTac 12:06, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

archiving the wigos[edit]

The last times, Tmtoulouse, Toast and Javascap have archived the wigos. The archive Feb 2009 still allows for voting, which seems to be undesirable - and isn't possible at the older archives. Mar 2009 should be put to rest, and therefore my questions:

  • can we (i.e., someone) turn voting off for Feb 2009?
  • are there pitfalls when archiving the wigos?

Thanks, larronsicut fur in nocte 14:01, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Anybody out there? Well, when looking for some missing wigos, I found the archive for March - it just had a wrong name.... larronsicut fur in nocte 18:10, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
So, thanks BON! vote=closed has to be added to the items. BTW, why doesn't 0903 show up? BON? larronsicut fur in nocte 21:03, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm not the BON that did whatever had been done, but I did "solve" the missing 0903 thing: It was a caching thing. The DPL code is set to enable caching (which makes sense in this case with only once-per-month changes to the set), so I did an "&action=purge" on the archive list to bypass it once. The now newly cached version is up to speed again. --Sid 21:29, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I added the caching to the archive dpl on this page. WIGO CP takes a long time to parse, and it's purged whenever you vote anyway, so it isn't a problem. Since Pi has replaced the dpl with a single link to an archive list to make Capturebot work, this won't be a problem any more (the archive list page doesn't have to be cached), but please keep anything that disables caching (randomselect, uncached dpl etc.) off this page. --  Nx/talk  12:23, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Jpatt, WP and Journalists[edit]

While WP is about a billion times better resource than CP is, Jpatt's post has a pretty large kernel of truth. Just as you shouldn't cite WP in a scientific manuscript, journalists shouldn't be relying on WP for their fact checking. It's lazy and prone to hoaxes, not to mention honest mistakes on the part of WPians. Corry 18:03, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

What I find funny is that it was reverted. The motive of the conservative media here is to undermine WP, which no one admits is perfect, but it's still pretty fucking good as evidenced by the handling of the article. Neveruse513 18:06, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Question (trivial)[edit]

Is the link to CP article(s) in the format [Address Text] or the format [[CP:Name&oldid=number|Text]] preferred in WIGO:CP? K61824"6+18=24" 18:44, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

[[CP:Name&oldid=number|Text]] is incorrect, if it works, it's only because of incorrectly configured software, and it might not work in the future. Also, Capturebot can only capture external links in the form of [Address Text]. --  Nx/talk  18:54, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Looking through the list, there are only a couple that are really very mysterious, or even worth asking. The pyramids still have some details that haven't been worked out, although we have a general idea these days. The Sphinx one is interesting when it comes to "why". Maybe the Tunguska although that seems more or less settled too. Everything else is either easily answered like the Teflon one, nonsense like the one about sin and women, or a complete waste of time, like almost anything Andy writes. --Kels 20:02, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

No, no, no. Andy's system is much simpler and more effective. He judges the effectiveness of a language by his ease in understanding it. English is obviously best, as it all makes sense. Latin is also great because he can recognize it uses letters, rather than gobbledegook, he can pronounce the words, and some of them even are like English. Greek is okay, because it kind of looks like latin script, but Chinese uses crazy pictures and stuff, so it's obviously a terrible language. How can anyone possibly understand it any more than him?

CP's news items rarely make popular WIGOs[edit]

Just something I want to point out for everyone's interest. Often, a news item appears and CP weighs in with its ridiculous opinion or distortion of the facts. I can see it must be tempting to wigo them but these conservaloony reactions are to be expected, and so the wigos usually turn out to be a bit of a bore, probably because they don't really involve any CP drama (summary: wigo links CP's reaction, then links off-site news sources to show why reaction is stupid. The wigo is effectively nothing more than a debunking). Usually it's Terry Koeckritz being deliberately asinine. As a result the votes tend to either stay low or go negative. Come to think of it, it's probably just Terry Koeckritz's postings that are dull. Whenever  K e n  D o l l  or the assfly approach the main page, lulz is inevitable.

"194.6.79.200" (obviously your parents were unbelievers to give you such a pagan name), support for gun control is so prevalent among feminists that that the insight is clearly self-evident.

An agnostic, if fair-minded, should be at least 50% Bible-based and 50% atheistic-based, so it's painfully obvious that you're almost certainly a liberal who's here to push your misguided ideology rather than genuinely help anyone learn. Denying this calls into question all of your credibility on the fact that winning in Iraq deters research into gravitons. Observation and logic dictate that jaywalking is not prosecuted as much as petty shoplifting. No liberal will admit that Castro is likely dead also.

wigo stats[edit]

wigo scores

Conservapedia:Best of Conservapedia shows all the wigos since voting was introduced in July/August 2008. It allows for ordering the wigos by the score they reached, i.e. the difference of positive and negative votes. DogP and ħumanUser talk:Human were somewhat unsatisfied by the results, as there seem to be some grade inflation over the time which puts older wigos at a disadvantage. When I was asked to take a look at this, I proposed a couple of [:File:Wigo-weighted.png|weightings]] which allow for addressing the effect. The result of this simple exercise in basic stats can be found in this table.

histograms of votes and scores

But my interest in the stats of the wigos was sparked, and as nothing much happened at Conservapedia anymore, I dived in the wigo site which is perhaps the most visited on RW. Countless edits are made at it (of course, not literally countless: in fact, 6725 revisions from Jul 17, 2008 until May 8, 2009, resulting in ca. 1800 wigos). Since introducing the voting tool ( a fantastic devise, BTW, thanks!), more than 170 editors have tried to come up with a clever wigo, and some 45,000 votes were cast until Apr 2009: an average of ~31 votes per item, leading to an average score of 20.

scores vs. votes

And the community know what it likes best: There is no much fight about single wigos, great ones are unanimously hailed, while stinkers are usually only appreciated by a very few...

But who are those who try to come up with new wigos? Here is a list of those editors who contributed most of the entries. It is a little bit unfair, as it doesn't reflect the work of those, who tweaked the wigos into perfection - or made them at least eligible. Thank all of you for your great contributions!

How did you determine who created the wigo? I don't feel like I have made more than 10, I however have had to renumber a few in my time. - π 10:28, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

I wanted to put in a disclaimer: At the moment, I checked for the revision of the first occurrence of the number of a wigo, and he who made the revision owns the wigo. That's imperfect of course: those who erroneously put in a wigo number which is (much) to high, will get credit if the wigo returns afterward. And renumbering of wigos has a similar effect.

Call me rational, but I'd consider Ace's 55 WIGO's with a score average of 29ish to be a proven track record in showing out the lulz. Outliers like your single entry are just that - a single freak result. LArron's 43 WIGO's also maintained a score average of 26ish, which is also pretty badass - AND he has not one negative score, unlike Ace. So I ask you - if Ace posted a WIGO, and you posted a WIGO, which would be more likely to entertain me? I rest my case. DogP 21:44, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Axioms vs. Postulates[edit]

The polymath Aschlafly on relativity:

Relativity is a mathematical system built on untestable hypotheses. By relying on assumptions about nature rather than observations, the theories of relativity violate Isaac Newton's rule against the use of hypotheses: "Hypotheses non fingo" ("I feign no hypotheses)".[1] Relativity also rejects -- without any experimental evidence -- Newton's action at a distance, which is basic to Newtonian gravity and quantum mechanics.

What's the difference between Einstein's postulates and Newton's axioms in being the fundamentals of a theory? larronsicut fur in nocte 12:59, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Newton's action at a distance? "I don't know why gravity works but it does"? Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course, but it's not a rule and as far as I can tell it wasn't stated as a rule nor does anybody think of it as one. Taking the statement to its logical conclusion, any scientific theory is discredited if it was deduced from an hypothesis (like, umm, thermodynamics) regardless of whether it is later experimentally confirmed. Andy is just gasping at straws. FlareTalk 13:41, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Huh? Gasping at straws? What's the point of that? --Just passing by 14:05, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Argh, I knew something didn't look right. FlareTalk 14:34, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
What fun, Andy's hard-on for action-at-a-distance returns! Anything that opposes relativity in his eyes is totally awesome to him. Just google for the term and you will be swamped by instances of Andy holding it up. --Sid 14:43, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

What utter bull. That is in no way, shape, or fashion Newton's "rule against hypotheses". It was a comment he made in the General Scholium which left the causation of gravity to God/whatever you want. He applied the word to what we could call "speculation," not scientific hypotheses or axioms. Andy is a shit. PubliusTalk 15:02, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

It really ticks me off when Fundies mix a bunch of ideas that they very vaguely understand together to make an incoherent critique. So he's heard about how we must make testable hypotheses, so chuck that into the pot - ooh, and also we shouldn't make assumptions, and hypotheses are a bit like assumptions (?) so that goes in too. We need experimental evidence, so that's ingredient 3, and you know what, maybe we should just forget about the necessity for testable hypotheses and just throw in a bit of "make no hypotheses whatsoever" to sugar it over. Oh yeah, and for a topping science should be based on observation, not mathematical systems - so Quantum mechanics is a lot more like science than relativity. It all makes for a pretty nauseating brew, and I'm getting (mentally)ill from Andy's forcefeeding. Bil08 17:10, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
That sounds remarkably like what's going on over here, doesn't it? --Kels 17:13, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Tee hee!:
Several theories have been developed as ways of denying action at a distance. These include:
  • gravitons
  • string theory
  • quantum field theory
[8]
ToastToastand marmite 18:05, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm guessing that Andy likes action at a distance because it allows him to imagine it's God holding the universe together (reminds of an infamous Chick Tract), an idea that Newton dismissed. I'm scratching my head thinking of what it was that Newton said in his dismissal, but whatever it was I hope it makes Andy's rant all the more ironic and stupid. Bil08 19:12, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
First it's evolution and now gravity? Wow, Richard Dawkins isn't kidding when he coined the term "Intelligent falling" (I wonder when Stork theory of reproduction is next... Oh yeah, when they can disprove the Sex theory by virgin birth). Jump! the falling motion is also action-at-a-distance! By the way, at most one can quantify F=Ma as an axiom (define/quantify force); the other are "validated hypotheses" ThiehZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 20:07, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

There it is, from the manchild himself. +1, would mock again. --Kels 15:03, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Shakspere[edit]

Evolution, relativity, and NOW Shakespeare denier (we all know when Andy says "some" he means "I"). I bet he really thinks he's made a huge point about the spelling discrepancy. For those not in the know, Elizabethan spelling, including for personal names, was extremely fast and loose. There were many spellings of "Shakespeare", used by himself and his contemporaries. Christopher Marlow occasionally went by "Marley", with no change in pronunciation. Sigh. --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 07:22, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

With a discrepancy on the birth certificate, Andy's probably thinking he was born in Hawaii or Kenya or something. And he might have been a Muslim, after all. DogP
Yeah, Shakespeare spelled his name some 4 or five different ways in his own will.... Another great example of Andy looking at something through a contemporary lens and assuming that it has always been that way through history.

Honestly, I don't think anyone at CP is creative enough to have intended that phrasing as a subtle dig at non-traditional families. They're not that bright. I think it just meant "there's no one like my Mother". MDB 11:11, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

A note on the Newtonian concept/Conservative word WIGO[edit]

Just a note that action at a distance has NOT been debunked by anyone, Einstein included, and is, as shown through Quantum Entanglement, a very real and "spooky" phenomenon. Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 00:49, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

I thought that Einstein had to modify Newton's idea that gravity acted instantly without regard to distance. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 00:53, 11 May 2009(UTC)
What i am getting at is that while that action at a distance does not work with relativity it does however hold true under Quantum Mechanics and has been observed. Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 00:56, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Isn't Andy due a slapdown from Brother Roger the Eater? ToastToastand marmite 00:57, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes. Andy is really on a tear today: New article action at a distance, which seems to set a record for amount of scientific ignorance per sentence, along with edits to relativity, and new "conservative words" action at a distance and non-locality. His ignorance is staggering! (Well, staggering for a normal person; in his case it's just the usual.) In the reference that he cited for Newton in 1693, the issue was whether gravity acted across a vacuum, not whether it acted instantaneously. And electrostatics acts instantly? Andy! Get a grip! Gauss 01:13, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Brain, hurts. I know Andy has any idea what he is talking about. Newton coined the phrase "action at a distance" because he could not explain how the force acted on the object. Until that point they had always thought of force as something applied by contact to the object, whereas one mass can apply a force to another mass, through the mass alone or as we call it gravity. Also both gravity and electrostatics occur at the speed of light, I am sure this has been measured. - π 01:52, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Didn't I also see Andy conflating "action at a distance" with "instantaneous action at a distance"? ħumanUser talk:Human 19:37, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't matter. Action at a distance is indeed possible, via quantum physics. So he's right, sort of. --Prim arthropleura.jpg 20:43, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Andy and Physics[edit]

Okay, I'll confess this is something of a sensitive spot for me, since the Assfly and I both have Bachelor's degrees in Electrical Engineering.

How the Hell did Andy ever get a BSEE since he pretty much denies all modern physics? He and I only graduated about half a decade apart, so our courses of study couldn't have been that different. At the least, he would have had to have taken a course in modern physics.

Did he

  1. not come to his "realizations" about physics until after college?
  2. commit deceit on his exams by repeating what his libb-burr-ull professors wanted to hear, rather than telling them the truth?

MDB 12:02, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

I think Andy is a fairly recent convert to the whole YEC thing. --PsyGremlinWhut? 12:09, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
RJJensen lately made some edits to cp:String theory. I would love to see a joined lecture science and critical thinking by Jensen and Schlafly!
I'm wondering what the next lecture will be: I doubt that he can get enough paying homeschoolers for his mathematics and critical thinking. What a pity... OTOH: this course not happening could be Schlafly's greatest contribution to maths ever! larronsicut fur in nocte 12:25, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
A combined Schlafly/Jensen lecture in math would create such a great quantity of teh stupid that its imense mass would cause a black hole, destroying the earth. Oh, and for bonus lulz, I love how the string theory article points to dark energy to prove string theory wrong, and the dark energy article says it was created by decietful liberal scientists to deny god. Great stuff. Z3rotalk 14:21, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
But black holes are liberal fabrications, so Andy could never create one. Hmm... did Andy ever argue that the LCH would doom the world because it would create a black hole or something of that nature? --Shagie 15:20, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Whoa whoa whoa. RJJ's modifications to cp:String theory are a clear improvement, describing it as what it is: a remarkably coherent mathematical unification which thus far fails the test of falsifiability. PubliusTalk 17:15, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Cracked[edit]

Expect a mass of people to check out conservapedia, cause it's featured on cracked.com!. It's pretty good and they really managed to touch upon some of the highlights of Andy's insanity. It is a bit too bad that they mention Liberapedia for further research, but not RationalWiki :( --GTac 12:26, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Nice one. Glad they picked up on the translation project. My only gripe is (like the Vanity Fair) article, they look at it from the outside in. Imagine if they were to come across Andy's "lectures", methods of testing and his replies to people who question his facts (Lesson 11 as an example). Maybe we should be dropping hints to them? --PsyGremlinWhut? 12:43, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Nah, cracked isn't really a blog kind of website that would post updates to already existing articles. And I don't think you can blame them too much for the way they have written it. They only have a few paragraphs to sum up CP to thousands of people who have never heard of it, of course they won't be able to give a thorough insider's perspective. I'm quite impressed what they did manage to put in, it has the bible retranslation project, hitler-evolution, andy = school teacher, obsession with liberals and a description how they pretty much build an anti-intellectual bunker.

Ken - CP's most irrelevant user?[edit]

Is it just me, or is Ken becoming more irrelevant? He hardly edits his pet articles any more; all he really does is put up his strange 'Gentlemen!!! I believe that it is likely that in the near future I will wash my hair!!! Look out for the search rankings of 'toenail clippings' at a certain search engine starting with a 'G'!'. I know he recently found a new fad (homosexuality and genetics) but that's stopped now. He hardly interacts with other users, apart from those whom he invites (and who never make a single edit e.g. BigWhammy) and I think that until he finds a new article like 'homosexuality and soap' or something he will increasingly fade into obscurity. Even Andy ignores him completely whenever Ken posts on his talk page; usually TK steps in and makes Ken his bitch. EddyP 15:56, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Essentially. He rarely if ever adds new content. It's almost entirely inane changes of verbiage, changing pictures, sizes, and copy-pasting his quote-ore into new articles. "Gentlemen! Behold! The search ranking for a certain article beginning with A is now #3 on a search engine beginning with G! I FEAR PROPER NOUNS!" PubliusTalk 16:47, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

The rest is either his edit to the Gentleman phone message, the comments on the mainpage that would confuse any new visitors to the site and the article he created on the group he is obviously reciprocal linking with. What has he contributed to other than the inflation of his own ego? - π 04:36, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Conservative values[edit]

I followed the WIGO, and had forgotten what a gem this article is.

...conservative values are superb in defending against obesity, addiction, adversity, anxiety, fear, depression, narcissism, risky law-breaking activities like dangerous driving, self-destructive behavior, illiteracy, rejection, wastefulness, and serious mental disorders.

Pibot[edit]

Before I start I would like to thank Misza13 for making his/her code available for this.

Basically I now have Miszabot running on RW as Pibot. What it does is quite straight forward it takes threads that have not been edited in more than a specified time cuts them and adds them to the archive. The tweaking will basically be the size of the archive (currently set at 250,000 characters) and how old the thread has to be before it is done. I am currently looking at 100hrs, keeping in mind that is 100 hrs between the oldest time stamp and where I live about 14hrs ahead of the timestamp, so a bit over 3 days. How is that for everyone? - π 13:16, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

You Sir, are a genius. Have the rest of the day off as a token of my gratitude. And 3 days should be more than enough. Might need to make it longer for TWIGOASK though? --PsyGremlinWhut? 13:46, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I really did very little to make it usable here. As people get use to using it we can tweak it. I will set it at 140hr at TWIGOASK and see how that goes. - π 13:49, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Rising from the Dead is illogical WIGO[edit]

Andy might be actually right on this one. I mean aside from any philosophical conclusions that I am unaware of (would it really be the same person in the reanimated body? Is it an analytic truth that being dead means you can't be brought back? etc) there is no logical objection to people rising from the dead, any more than there is a logical objection to unicorns existing. Then again Andy doesn't seem to have a clue what "logic" is so maybe he fluked this one. Bil08 03:22, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Based on what we now know dying to be, it is illogical — like saying, "There's nothing illogical about getting more power out of a battery you just completely drained." Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 03:32, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
It does sort of come down to "name one example". OK, "name two" Oops, "name three" (Allowing for Lazarus?) ;) ħumanUser talk:Human 03:37, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
I believe the problem lies in what "death" is defined as — perhaps someone is still experimenting, just like virgin birth, by making more samples(corpses and virgins, respectively) every day. Well, from Andy's definition, being dead has no baring on what happens afterwards(prone to resurrection) since "raised from the dead" is used (if "resurrection" is used, then there is a possibility that death only applies to those who stays dead). K61824CP≠Child Porn? 03:38, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
arguments for religion are so much more successful when they don't try to "prove" their points with "science" and "logic"-- this is something PJR and Andy need to learn. Just dismiss all the violations of the rules (Where did the water go during the Flood? What did the animals eat on the ark? How did Jesus rise from the dead?) by saying--"It was a fuckin' miracle. That's what God does--he performs fuckin' miracles. You don't like? Too fuckin' bad, those are God's rules, baby..." instead of engaging in an exercise which is doomed to fail--trying to prove the unprovable by twisitng logic into shapes it will not go. Amin7b5 03:52, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
But Andy has always tried to pass CP off as a serious academic and intellectual undertaking, they even list him as an academic on his page. He is vaguely aware of the fact that proper intellectual discourse is based on reason and logic, so what he does is start with the answer he wants and asserts that it is logical. See makes perfect sense. - π 03:59, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

About Rising from the Dead/horror version. I once read a history of vampires - that is, of vampires in popular culture. The most interesting part was the first half of the book, which dealt with vampires/undead/zombies in ancient and medieval times (that is, before modern fiction). It was a very interesting and illuminating read about the general fears, beliefs, behaviours of people, beyond the specific issue of vampires. If you can put your hands into such a book, I highly recommend reading it. For starters, there is the WP page. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 09:48, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

This is interesting- The word "creationism" is listed as a liberal term, with the "definition": 'like most "isms", creationism is a derogatory term coined preferred (sic) most by opponents of it.' Bad grammar aside, one would think that IF the term was coined by opponents of creationism, then the term creationism would not be the preferred term on CP, and "creationism" would have an entry which spells out how the term was coined, and how only liberals use it, and we use the term "Godmadeit" or whatever. Having our cake and eating it too, eh? Jimaginator 16:49, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Not only is it the preferred term, ITS ON THE MAIN PAGE. Unless Ken is using the term derogatorily. Is that a word?--CWaddell 21:34, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Is "cake" a conservative word? Cake is tasty, but it makes you fat. And conservative values guard against obesity, except for Rush Limbaugh. So cake must be liberal. But it's not the government's job to tell us not to eat cake, so it must be a conservative word. Perfect geometric expansion! Corry 17:46, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
@Jimaginator: This is/was one of Andy's weirder obsessions. See also cp:Debate:Creationist. If it had been up to him, there would have been a big sweep to change all those "creationist" references. --Sid 18:59, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Liberal term growth[edit]

I just noticed in the 1700's liberals had 2 new words, 1800's 9 and 1900's 27, they are tripling every century. That means even though Conservative terms had a one or two century head start and a large initial number, because they are only doubling every century, eventually Liberal term will outstrip Conservative terms. Yeah Andy's word project. - π 03:32, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Nice work, except you skipped the 1900s. The only new liberal words in the 1990s were "My Lai" and "Precious bodily fluids". Why? Feminism and Racial Quotas! ħumanUser talk:Human 03:40, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

The Liberal Creep is now affecting English too, socialists like Obama support liberal words because these words deny faith, chivalry, beauty of autumn folliage and Newton's action at a distance, and enforce abortion, gun control, mental illness and humor before christ's time.

Mystery time![edit]

Yay, And came up with another Mystery article! cp:Mystery:Why Is the Kilogram Losing Weight?

Of course, it is immediately referenced to from the regular mainspace to make scientists look like clueless idiots. --Sid 22:41, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

At least this one is legitimately a mystery. The article is fairly interesting, and it provides a variety of possible explanations. It's ultimately not a very interesting mystery. The more interesting part of the article is figuring out a way to concoct a new method of measuring a K. -Lardashe
Actually the answer to why Le Grand K mass is differing compared to the other cylinders is very easy to explain. The French buggered up the alloy for the cylinders. Now if they had used gold.......they could have called the whole thing a waste of time, made up a figure for a kilogram based on nothing physical, and then pawned the gold cylinders when times get rough. After all, that has been the standard for Imperial measurement countries for years.--199.20.64.195 00:09, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Think about it: "creationism" is the bull; a big, dumb, angry animal that's chasing around "evolution"; the dominant, much more intelligent species.

Hi Ken, in regards to your latest regards I think you should put the link on to the mainpage now and take 40 edits to get it right.

I owe  K e n  D o l l  an apology. I always thought his article on evolution was a quote-mined pile of shit. After having read that article he is linking to, I realise what a quote-mined pile of shit actual looks like. They have an even worse article then  K e n D o l l ' s  and they then tarted with his shitty Hitler picture.

In CP's article about Young mass murderers, "wore all black, indicative of anti-Christianity" has appeared in one or more people. Don't priests/nuns use to wear black clothing?

Another day in the life slow death of CP[edit]

In the 24 hours that were May 13th, there were:

  • 350 entries in recent changes (one every 4.1 minutes)

of these, there were:

    • 27 New Users
    • 34 Blocks (including 17 of the new users and 7 range blocks) (TK and Jpatt share the honours here)
    • 12 Pages protected (including TK's talk page)
    • 11 Pages deleted
    • 31 Edits reverted (TK and JPatt doing most of the covering up)

This leaves 235 actual edits, of which:

    • 35 were minor edits
    • 19 were template or Mainpageright
    • 18 User Talk pages
    • 40 Talk pages
    • 7 user pages

This leaves 116 actual mainspace edits, of which

    • 66 were by Sysops (49 alone by RJJ and TerryH)
    • 24 by non-blocked users (half of these by FOIA and Jinx)
    • 26 by subsequently blocked and reverted users

Breakdown of ken's '20 Videos'[edit]

I love this guy. He brags about how 19 of the 20 videos are positive of Conservapedia when searched for under surcher.com. Here's how they break down:

14x video from a 17-part video series from a whacko who seems to be a conspiracy nut who has a link to CP in the sidebar.

1x video from the same nut above who attempts to humourously use a scene from one of the Ace Ventura films to show how evolution is fake - but only succeeds in showing his own ignorance.

1x video by what  K e n  D o l l  dismisses as a 'whiny evolutionist with no popularity'.

1x video extolling the repeatedly-debunked claim of 'Darwinism leads to Hitler', with, at the time of this writing, 24 views, one less than the 'unpopular whiny evolutionist' above, yet has been on there since April 30th, 10 days before the 'whiny evolutionists' video was posted.

2x video that is a two-part series extolling the same debunked claim as above, but also adds communism into it.

1x video from a guy who is trying to make a point of some kind, but I don't know what it is, exactly, other than 'Barack Obama is evil', or something like it, which, again, simply has a link to CP in the sidebar.

A geometric series is of the form a_n = ar^{(n-1)}. When you actually deal with them in mathematics, it's usually the case that r < 1, because then the series converges to \frac {a} {1-r}. Why he insists on referring to this as a "geometric fit" is simply beyond me. Well, actually, it's because he's totally fucking insane, but whatever...

At one point his little list was close to doubling every century, and he got a bug up his ass about it. Funny thing is, he's trying to cram it into exactly doubling, when any "factor" (tripling, *1.25, whatever) would be geometric. That is, he is fixated on r=2.

It's like watching a dog chase his own tail. --Sid 19:10, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
My favorite is how he seems to have no idea that a) he's defining what a conservative term is and b) he's picking how many terms are used. It'd be like getting all excited because you performed a study where 30 people had the same birthday, but you knew before hand everyone's birthday. Z3rotalk 19:16, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
This has been one of my favorite bits of Andy's inanity. It's a perfect example of the Texas sharpshooter fallacy. Corry 21:31, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
It's more asking 30 people their birthday, arbitrarily categorize them as "red" or "blue" and getting all excited because they all have a blue birthday. FlareTalk 21:45, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
I find it particularly odd that he should be so fixated on r = 2 in light of point 12 here (and the associated talk-page discussion).-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 22:19, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Neveruse, my bad. I thought when you explained it before, you were being tongue in cheek. You have to understand. My knowledge of math stopped when it exceeded on hand.

EaG, how could you set up such a delightful straight line? The answer, of course, is 42. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:57, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

The answer is *always* 42, which doesn't help my math any.--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot"«Poetry involves the mysteries of the irrational perceived through rational words. V.Nabokov» 01:08, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
