Debate, CP style[edit]

Dear Gentlemen at a very liberal site! In regards to Anupam's latest editimg to Conservapedia's "Atheism and the suppression of science" article, I have revertedimg Anupam's latest edit to Conservapedia's "Atheism and the suppression of science" article and have now <capture>protectedimg Conservapedia's "Atheism and the suppression of science" article so that nobody who is not an administrator of Conservapedia may edit it! The irony of protecting an article about suppression will soon destroy atheism on the Internet! Olé! Olé! Olé! –SuspectedReplicant retire me 20:42, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Another debate won! --Willfully Wrong (talk) 21:11, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Okay, this Anupam shit is really starting to piss me off. (did i mention that Anupam is probably one of Ken's SockPuppets) Ken should be charged with identity theft if it turns out that the CP Anupam is not the same guy as the WP one (who seems to have a almost completly different style of writing) LordSlug Proudly flopping onto the couch since 2008 21:17, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
I guess this episode should settle that question. At least I sincerely hope Ken isn't getting into an edit war with his own sock now. Röstigraben (talk) 21:20, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Me thinks that Anupam is some elaborate plot to give Ken TWO sysop accounts. CP is so fucked. LordSlug Proudly flopping onto the couch since 2008 21:22, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
I have at least half a dozen sysop accounts at RW. I forgot all the passwords though. And the usernames. --Idiot numbre 188 (talk) 21:26, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Rep, you missed the "I am a senior sysop here"img. Also with Freedom777 Ken already has two sysop accounts. Reading Conservaleaks he also threatened to create Freedom76 or Freedom1776 accounts and asked for them not to be blocked.  Lily Inspirate me. 22:40, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

The 90 day clock starts now[edit]

After all those false starts  K e n  D o l l  finally says bon voyageimg and categorizes Anupam as an old Earth creationist. Is Ken just being devious? Silly twit (talk) 04:41, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

wow, NOW everything suddenly falls into place. namely, Ken was planning for conservative to take a break, NOT himself. LordSlug Proudly flopping onto the couch since 2008 05:13, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh dear goat, this is hilarious. Kendoll is actually switching socks in the most obvious manner possible. It reminds me of 'Allo 'Allo where Rene convinces everyone he's been shot, and that his twin brother is now running the cafe. Whereas Rene then had to marry Edith to get his cafe back, Kendoll is now going to have to suck the Assfly's electronic cock to get his sysop bit back, and equal hilarity ought to ensue. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 05:25, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
im sorry, this is redickulousimg, seriously, Ken is saying that Spock(!) is "Definitely a nerd, yet too logical to be an atheist. The only indications that Spock may have been an atheist is that he was a famous, white, nerd who had lady problems." Im sorry, what lady problems? Wasnt Uhura mooning after him for like, the entire show!? perhaps ken means lady problems like in, PMS or something?!? Plus, Spock's entire race is Atheist by nature. how come spock is the only person of his race who believes in a god(s)? this is just so fucking hilarious LordSlug Proudly flopping onto the couch since 2008 08:19, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
also, shatner quote mining ftw "GET A LIFE" (1-UP?), next to a "redudancy department of redundancy" pic oh look theres the obligatory hitler pic, hooray, right next to that same fucking picture of Richard Dawkins, you know the one... im not boring you now, am i???? LordSlug Proudly flopping onto the couch since 2008 08:24, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Using Star Trek TOS references and then accusing other people of being nerds made me laugh. X Stickman (talk) 10:24, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I say again that Anupam is not Ken's sock. Anupam at WP is quite a busy editor; looking at his contribs there is a matching gap of three days when he first posts at CP. His style, wiki-fu, use of English are all superior to Ken. So, please excuse the wiki-stalking but here's my take - Anupam is probably a US-born United Methodist of Indian decent who lives in the same city as Ken and knows him through his church - Ken has never specified his faith other than generic protestant but Methodism would seem a reasonable fit rather than happy-clappy evangelical. I don't see an obvious showing of Anupam's old-Earth beliefs so Ken probably knew of them off-wiki. I expect that Ken has encouraged Anupam to edit at CP and that is why he was so quick to open up his email to him. Anupam's edits at CP seem to start on Friday/Saturday unlike his everyday editing at WP so he probably sees Ken in a church social setting. I wouldn't be surprised if Ken has contacted Andy and vouched for him to be a sysop.  Lily Inspirate me. 10:34, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Anupam told me (on WP) that he did not mind people copying his articles (my emphasis, not quite the quote, but you get the gist). He did not state that he was the one who did the copypasta... i dunno... it still feels really fishy. LordSlug Proudly flopping onto the couch since 2008 11:04, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm sure that Ken would have warned him about RW. Saying that he did not mind people copying his articles is quite non-committal. Oh, by the way Ken, on your user pageimg you have misspelled emigration. How could you embarrass Andy so?  Lily Inspirate me. 13:59, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Well that was quickimg. Shouldn't he be thanking you for your help? CowHammer (talk) 21:09, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
He obviously suffers from RationalWiki Compulsive Disorder and cannot refrain from reading us. I like that he also wipedimg the reference to RuyLopez from his user-page; proof that his 'man of mystery' mask is slipping. Having revisited CP do we need to reset his 90-day clock?  Lily Inspirate me. 21:59, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
He admits to being RuyLopez in the discussion groups - he also admits to spamming the Irish Atheist forum. Ace of Spades 22:19, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I see his current 90 day vacation is going well. What is this? The sixth or seventh he's declared now, and never followed through on? At least he's stopped claiming it's because he's an uber successful writer with many commissions to attend to. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:29, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I think he's being very clever. He says he's taking a break, waits for a RWian to post about it, then kinda says "Ha, fooled you!". It's a highly developed method of..... erm..... method of.... .. . of something. Yes, that's it. Something. Ajkgordon (talk) 23:02, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
It's a wiki version of Peek-a-boo. Ace of Spades 23:10, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I see he memory-holed his spelling correction. It may not be a lie Ken but GOD knows what a deceitful little man you are. Anyone with a shred of machismo would man up to correcting a spelling mistake. By the way, how's it going with the Asian and Hispanic ladies, because you obviously aren't married to one - or a lady of any other ethnic grouping come to that.  Lily Inspirate me. 00:47, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
does his left hand count as an "ethnic group?"--Brxbrx (talk) 02:37, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

CP traffic[edit]

I've been thinking, would it be wise to actually HELP conservapedia improve their web traffic? My reasons for this: 1) more people would see the site and realise how bad it really is. 2) There will be more editors who actually want to improve CP (increased level of parodists as well, but whatever) 3) We would have a reason to agree with Ken in regards to his gloating over a certain site begining with "g": this might actually shut him up (might). 4)It would force all the sysops over there to increase their productivity, in order to quickly bring out more "exciting new developments" (a plus to this might be seen as the higher edit rate would mean that it would be more likely for a person to add facts to an article undetected, which is a good thing, right?) 5) It may result in Andy appearing more frequently on TV, which is always hilarious, especially on Colbert. There are probably many more reasons, but i cant think of them right now. Anyone else got any other reasons/ideas??? LordSlug Proudly flopping onto the couch since 2008 23:00, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

No. No. A thousand times "no". Barry Goldwater would now be a "liberal", Reagan, (yes the anointed one), would also be a liberal. The right has moved so FAR right that it's drug the center with it. As scary as CP's rhetoric sounds to you and me, you'd be surprise how many people will think "Hey, this makes great sense!" So no. 23:12, 7 March 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ
if there's anything to conservepadia's brand of conservative wackaroo, it's our place as humans to herald any and all potential knowledge found within. In fact, bringing conservepedia fully into the light would better help combat any evil it represents.--Brxbrx (talk) 23:24, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
This is actually a matter of contention here at Blue Manor.
I want Conservapedia to be popular for the same reason I gave money to Birther groups. I want America strong and energetic, which means I want the right to be dominated or at least severely distracted by the lunatic fringe. If the Palinists or the Randroids or whoever sink the Republican party then the Democrats are free to bring America's public schools forward into the 20th century and America's health care system forward into the 19th. The US would be so much more powerful if they finally had the social mobility of 1890 England and the infant mortality of 1970 Cuba. Naturally I'd love to see Conservapedia become more influential.
My inlaws, who are Chinese and fiercely nationalist, want America to crash and burn, so they want Republicans elected, so they'd want sites like WND or Conservapedia to disappear, if they knew about them, and the sooner the better. Mountain Blue 00:18, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
I think that we (and others) have improved their web traffic. The original clickbot campaign which put nine homosexuality articles in the top ten created quite a stir and brought CP to a wider audience. Since then, parodists have encouraged Andy with things like the Lenski letter, Bible-retranslation project and secularized language have all boosted visits. They think that they are getting attention for their "insights" but it is just more people gazing at the car-crash.  Lily Inspirate me. 00:56, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Conservapedia already has traffic, what it doesn't have is editors. And that's not a bug, it's a feature. Rather than argue about content, Andy prefers sitting on the crumbling shell of what was once supposed to be an all-purpose encyclopedia, proudly announcing his latest insight, while his sysops ignore him and tend to their personal fiefdoms. They made that choice long ago, their total disdain for even highly-skilled editors who would've been a huge asset is evident from episodes like the KSorenson saga. And for a similar reason, Conservapedia is not a player even just within the right-wing fringe. It completely fails to reach out to anyone and will never accomodate an editor who's not on board with Andyism. There simply are next to no people who fit that profile, so the vast majority of the traffic they get is made up of visitors who are just curious about the crazy ideas they keep coming up with. Increasing that further wouldn't change a single thing. Röstigraben (talk) 07:47, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Its Recall Time[edit]

This time, its Jan Brewer's head possibly on the chopping block. We must get Andy on the case. His failure is our only chance.--Thunderstruck (talk) 23:49, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

I live in AZ. I've heard nothing of this. I do sorta live in a cave, but really, she's become rather popular here. Napolitano was a lib though, and she got elected a lot. We'll see.--Brxbrx (talk) 23:54, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Yeah I live in AZ, too, and haven't heard a word of this. Which is a shame, because I'd love to put my signature on that. Unfortunately, I don't see this going too far, since as Brxbrx pointed out, she's pretty popular here. There are an insane amount of rednecks here in Phoenix that love her and SB1070. I need to move... CowHammer (talk) 17:00, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Boycott[edit]

I'm going to begin a campaign of ignoring CP. I very rarely look at their silly website, and having looked at it for the last time today I am of the opinion that it's just a little piece of nothing. There's nothing there that's relevant to us, nothing there that can be used by anyone. As someone said, they crave attention like little whiny babies, so let them get someone else to change their diapers...not us. --- Rationalwiki is moving forward and upward. Let CP stew in the toilet they created for themselves; they are not relevant anymore. Etc 00:55, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes, that's one of my faves. Mountain Blue 01:26, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Pretty specific thing, but I don't think I've heard the word "silly" used anywhere near as much outside of CP. Why do they love that word so much? X Stickman (talk) 02:12, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Kowardjerk is excellent value in those discussion groups. Here he deems that we must have been at the forefront of the DoS attacks on paypal, because, erm, there's no evidence about it! DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 03:23, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
So... Kowardjerk thinks that we are Anonymous... as we all are. LordSlug Proudly flopping onto the couch since 2008 07:22, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Shit, he's onto us. He's figured out that whenever RW doesn't comment on something, we're the culprits. And of course the true aim of all those conspiracies is to piss off those damned Conservapedians, the last bastion of righteousness on the internet. Well, maybe Operation Ballot Box Stuffing 2012 will put an end to that. Röstigraben (talk) 07:26, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
OK.. that is now officially the funniest thing ever seen in connection with CP. I love the idea of someone giving the police a tip based on the information that certain people were not talking about something. "Officer, I need to report a crime. I think my neighbour might be Jack The Ripper because he hardly ever mentions the murder of prostitutes in Olde London Towne!" — Unsigned, by: 82.24.115.232 / talk / contribs
What I find amazing is the idea at CP that they are "moving forward" when in every measurable way, CP is slowing down. Even ASK is far better, as an encyclopedia. Etc 09:17, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Whoah! I wouldn't go that far! –SuspectedReplicant retire me 09:36, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Wait, aSoK still exists? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 11:16, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Sort of....my general understanding is that ASK is the same thing as CP but with less asshole sysops. The fact that the ASK project goes even slower than CP, only shows that a deliberately biased encyclopedia is a bad idea anyway you try to implement it. The only way to make the project last is to have a gang of obsessive users who keep running the show even when nobody is watching anymore, which is where CP excels. But in terms of actual real-world information, ASK is far ahead. Etc 12:21, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
It's a given that the bitterest arguments usually occur at the extremes where they try and maintain some "ideological purity", and personality clashes are legion. So yes, if you try to organise any project with a deliberate bias rather than a neutral stance then you need to be more authoritarian in order to maintain the party line. Despite being a social conservative and Bibull literalist PJR is more economically liberal. This means that there is some overlap between the fundies and the RW editors who edit there. At CP the extreme views are more wide-ranging so there is greater scope for conflict with moderate editors. The only thing that keeps the remaining nutters together is a bunker mentality; they've backed themselves so far into a corner that none of them can get out.  Lily Inspirate me. 12:53, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

"The Satire is Working"[edit]

Relevant

"The satire is working, but they don't seem to realize it yet. Some also don't want to see just how evil and despicable atheism is. But this subject needs to be expanded in detail, beginning with Madalyn Murray O'Hair. You can find an interesting reading by her son ... part of this actually confirms user Conservative's satires about fat atheists..." Oh my! I used to think it was just Ken and everyone put up with it; turns out he is mainstream on the site! I wonder how Anger Bear measures that "the satire is working". Their measure of success seems to be a singular focus on hits to their website, and not in signing up new members or having anyone take them seriously. If it was just liberals deriding them I might understand, but they are ridiculed by conservatives and Christians with actual influence. --Leotardo (talk) 14:47, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

I've been trying to figure that out, since reading that Kara & Co weren't treating Ken like the embarrassing cousin he is. I can only put it down to 2 things: 1. They genuinely see page views as a good thing, and that everybody who visits CP, walks away full of conservative good cheer and goes and bombs an abortion clinic. 2. Despite what he says, Karajerk and his cronies watch our reactions, and mistake our (and the web in general's) cries of "WTF?" for cries of moral indignation, followed by an acceptance of teh Bubba Jebus, anorexia and bombing an abortion clinic. --PsyGremlinSermā! 15:10, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, Andy's completely hung up on that page views thing. I just came across this gem. The extent of that man's delusions is truly staggering. Röstigraben (talk) 15:14, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

All of our traffic sees the conservative message, and with our high volume, our site could be the single biggest reason American culture is moving to the right.

Wa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! --PsyGremlinSermā! 15:20, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Oh my fucking god! I mean, really, you think that web hits equal influence that much?! How in the world can they ever believe that? Totally unhinged from reality, which makes them all the better to watch. --Leotardo (talk) 15:24, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
It would be interesting to compare their number of hits to that of lolcats or 4chan. What would that tell us about the development of American culture? Röstigraben (talk) 15:27, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Yes, let's put this into perspective. Alexa ranks Encyclopedia Dramatica 4,051 worldwide and 1,729 U.S.; they rank CP 61,352 WW and 17,840 U.S. --Leotardo (talk) 15:31, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
damn right!--Brxbrx (talk) 15:40, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Some more perspective, Alexa put lolcatz at 1931 globally and 840 US. Methinks Andy has his work cut out for him. --PsyGremlinSpeak! 15:47, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
I agree with the Assfly here; my clickbots have became noticeably more conservative of late. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 16:00, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Some more US rankings that spell doom for conservatism - richarddawkins.net #25293, barackobama.com #6500, gay.com #3947, Scienceblogs #2206, Daily Kos #853, Huffington Post #31, and of course...*drumroll*...Facebook #2. Röstigraben (talk) 16:27, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Though there's no way to verify it, I really want to know if Andy actually believes shit like this is true. Can he be that delusional as to really think that his shitforbrains blog has any effect on politics, let alone the most influence of any site or organization? Though he'll never admit it he must know his influence is minimal, if it exists at all. If not he is truly mentally ill (which is not in the least out of the question). DickTurpis (talk) 17:08, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Another possible explanation would be that he's just boasting to his lackeys, trying to convince them that they're making a difference so that they'll stay on board. Of course, they need CP too and will cling to the tiny measure of power he's granted them until the end, but maybe he doesn't realize that. Either way, he's fundamentally mistaken about the nature and importance of his project. Röstigraben (talk) 19:24, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
The same circle-jerk has been going since 2007.
Andy: Our Page views are amazing, we having a huge impact!
Karajou: We need to get out message out to the radio, the press and the blogs! I just mentioned CP on insert radio show and wrote a letter to insert newspaper
Ed: We need to attract more high profile conservatives from Townhall and the like
This has been going on for nearly 4 years and the net outcome? Nothing. Ace of Spades 19:54, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
God-fuckin'-damn I love Conservapedia. Whatever makes them happy I guess. SJ Debaser 20:04, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Even Among Conservative Sites[edit]

CP is a blip. US Rankings as per Alexa

And I think it says something about the American conservative movement that WorldNetDaily beats the National Review. MDB (talk) 17:44, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Errr rrright. You're expressing surprise that there are more rednecks and hillbillies interested in the facile lies on WND than there are people capable of reading at an 11th grade level who enjoy National Review. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 18:04, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Fair point. The National Review is simply not targeted at the average conservative, any more than Mother Jones is targeted at the average liberal. MDB (talk) 18:10, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
They're both hugely popular sites that I suspect cater to markedly different cohorts. :) Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 18:18, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
I dunno about that -- maybe when Bill Buckley was around. K-Lo can barely spell at an 11th grade level. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 20:21, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
At least the National Review doesn't publish Victoria Jackson (see earlier thread) or columns like Soy is Making My Kids Gay. Jus sayin... --Leotardo (talk) 20:54, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
I love the quotes he puts around gay so his readers know he's not complaining about his kids being happy and carefree. Mountain Blue 21:36, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Karajerk's ADD[edit]

I see now that he's filled up Wanted Pages with dozens of Civil War battles, he's forgotten all about his little project. Maybe the National Parks Board doesn't have info on those battles that he can copy/paste. --PsyGremlinRunāt! 14:35, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

I looked at that a couple of days ago when people were complaining they could see RC. It looked as though someone deleted a bunch for being copied by a parodist. Talking of deletions; what on earth is AddisonDM doing? He deleted a template created by TerryH which is now wanted on 350 pages. You have to love it when those guys start cleaning up without knowing what they are doing.  Lily Inspirate me. 15:26, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Addision gets a little bit too carried away at times. I remember just after we were promoted, she and I went through and cleaned up the "move requests." Didn't have a clue what we were doing - deleted stuff, moved pages over existing pages, moved Ed's articles to essay space... but as it was actual work, none of the other sysops would go near it, or check it. On another note, what the hell would that template do? --PsyGremlinSprich! 15:33, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, this looks like SEO spam. And like most SEO spam, it's fairly stupid. Free hosting, just enough content to pass as more than a content-less linkfarm (I guess), a subdomain that more or less matches the likely search query, and then it just uses the blogroll (or whatever it's called) to whore out its links.
Of course, we can bet on Karajou going apeshit in the Secret Discussion Group right now, flinging out the usual accusations of the rats trying to impersonate CP and/or destroy its Google rankings and/or smear CP by spreading the WP article (which we of course own and which is full of lies and misrepresentations). Followed by him writing an angry mail at Google (since they own Blogger), demanding an instant take-down and full identification information unless they want to be dragged to court by Andy. Followed then by him actually realizing that the account is obviously stupid, which will lead to him claiming victory over the rats because our secret plot to [whatever] backfired.

Mikalos, you forget that we live in the age of discovering new Biblical Scientific Foreknowledge and that CP is one of the leading sites in the field.

Obviously it's God's retribution for the secularization — sorry, "paganization" — of the English language (which is God's chosen language; why else was the Bible written in English?). It's the start of a global cleansing like the Great Flood, except much slower and with seemingly obvious answers.

Really what this is about is Andy's stark black and white view of the world. For him it is either Biblical Literalist Christianity or Atheism. If you seek to find a naturalistic cause for this incident then you are an atheist. Never mind you could be a Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, agnostic, humanist, Unitarian, etc, etc, etc scientist, if you are not automatically assuming some mysterious supernatural cause as a divine message from the Christian god, well you must just hate religion, and America. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:09, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Ken's vacation[edit]

It seems like  K e n  D o l l  can't stop fiddling. I see that he spammed MPRimg again with the old (February 1) forced mention by Denise O'Dreary at Uncommon Decent about his Atheism and Obesity article. Pathetic! Clickbot (talk)

To be fair, the US population is considerably more diverse than the UK population, so a lower health overall doesn't surprise me in the least. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:22, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

CNN just talked about "Fat Tuesday" and showed a graph of the United States (can't seem to find it online at the moment), which showed the most and least obese/healthier states. They didn't say it directly, but it was obvious that most the states with the highest obesity statistic were along the bible belt and SE part of the country (in other words.. republican). I'd like to see Andy try to quantify health as liberal and conservative without PIDOOMA statistics. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 13:50, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
BMcP, in what way is the US more diverse than the UK? I suspect the UK is at least as ethnicly diverse as the US if not more. And anyway, wtf has that to do with health of the populus? Oldusgitus (talk) 14:02, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

America has large pockets of traditional and immigrant poverty whose populations tend to be in lower health than the average.

According to the 2001 census Besides, 85% of the population is "White British", America isn't close to be that homogeneous. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:19, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Obesity by state and the red/blue/purple state divide. Kinda goes against the idea that conservatives are slimmer. The Bible Belt is the fattest region, as Norseman mentioned. --Night Jaguar (talk) 14:51, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
I must admit I was thinking more in terms of the number of different ethnic groupings in the population as opposed to the outright number within those differing ethnic groups. However to me I have to say that the differing results are possibly more to do with the way in which our socialised atheistic government and it's death health care system seek to improve the populations health through intervention as opposed to only treatment (and then only if you can afford it) than anything else. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:53, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Think like an idiot.
  • P1: Liberals are fatter than conservatives...accepted.
  • P2: Conservative states are fatter than liberal states...I don't even know if Andy would (I know he could) deny that.
  • QED: Liberals in conservative states are fat, probably because they're depressed because the truth of conservatism is constantly surrounding them.
That's the only way I can imagine they've rationalized it. Occasionaluse (talk) 15:06, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

No it makes sense. Atheists in the bible belt have to be atheier to combat all the bibleness, and this increased athiestness fats them up. Atheists in unenbibled states, however, don't have to be so athy, so they're less prone to fatitude. That's why bibley states have fatness - the atheistest residents drag up the fatty averages. ONE / TALK 15:21, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────While the obesity statistics for the Bible Belt refute  K e n D o l l ' s  chatter about atheism and obesity, they do not say anything about the weight of fundamentalists or Republicans in general; concluding that would be an example of correlation does not equal causation (on the other hand,  K e n  D o l l  does not even have any correlation to equate to causation).

There was a map on Boing Boing just yesterday that showed how Red states and regions have the highest diabetes rates. The same regions (the Deep South, West North Central, Arizona) also have the lowest rates of people holding passports. The fewest diabetics and the most passports are in California and New England.
The map was couched as a snipe against armchair quack sociology ("Junk science from Boing Boing! Passports prevent diabetes!") but yes, voting the Republican ticket does correlate with being obese and parochial just like it correlates with being poor and stupid. Mountain Blue 15:50, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
@LX: This here mentions a positive correlation between participating in certain religious activities and body weight. If I recall correctly from looking at the paper itself it surveyed others that also find a connection between higher BMI and religiousness. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 16:27, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
(EC) You can find a fairly direct discussion of obesity and religion at this article. It is a fairly complicated picture, as indicated by this excerpt:
"He analyzed the religious practices and body mass index, often referred to as BMI, of more than 2,500 people during an eight-year period from 1986 to 1994. He found that the use of religious media resources, such as television, books or radio, was a strong predictor of obesity among women. The incidence of obesity increased by 14 percent for this group. At the same time, the more often women attended religious services, the less likely they were to be obese."
See also Faithful states also the fattest and an article in Nature saying the same. Of course, all of this evidence is from atheists and/or scientists (which CP would say is redundant), so it can't stand up to Ken's rigorously made-up correlation.
(NOTE: These were just a few of the top hits when searching "obesity and religion" at Google. Ya think Ken did the same search and ignored the results?) Phiwum (talk) 16:33, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
"Passports prevent diabetes" sounds like something Andy would actually conclude. Occasionaluse (talk) 18:17, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
If you want to see something really horrifying, check out the CDC's maps showing the spread of clinically obese people in the USA over the past 40-odd years. I saw it for an article I was writing about diabetes and I was dumbstruck. Darkmind1970 (talk) 19:16, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Speaking of "Open Your Mind", I saw this Onion article and immediately thought of Andy: Open-Minded Man Grimly Realizes How Much Life He's Wasted Listening To Bullshit.

According to Richman, he started thinking about how much time he's flushed down the toilet being an approachable person after a work meeting in which he let a coworker, David Martin, ramble on and on with an idea everyone knew was "total shit" the moment the man opened his mouth. Richman said that a single glance at the clock made him realize he had just spent 14 minutes of his finite time on earth not playing with his kids or being with his wife, but listening to garbage.

fat tuesday[edit]

Does anyone say fat tuesday? Mardi Gras redirects to fat tuesday. conservepedia has never seemed particularly anti-french to me.--Brxbrx (talk) 04:26, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

I've never heard of the term, but according the ever-reliable Wikipedia's entry Catholics have called it "Fat Tuesday" since before the reformation. So it's Protestants that are getting it wrong by calling it "Absolution Tuesday". However, I've always called it Shrove Tuesday, and for a long time known that Mardi Gras occurred on the same day, even if I didn't know what the literal translation of Mardi Gras was. CS Miller (talk) 10:18, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
I have heard Fat Tuesday on occasion among Catholic friends but even they pretty much use it and Mardi Gras rather interchangeably. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:20, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
You're all wrong as usual, it's called Pancake Day. DogP (talk) 20:12, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
T.G.I. Fridays used to have "Fat Tuesday" at their wild n' crazy chain restaurants. Since the "G" stands for "God" I am surprised they don't have Shrove Tuesday celebrations. --Leotardo (talk) 16:15, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

I think Kara is the next likely candidate for leaving the Inner Circle (but not for leaking). Yes, he's a die-hard supporter of the "Liberals are Nazis who want to burn down churches!!!" view, but he already was slapped down over the Obama article and also shook his head at the CBP.

More Koward[edit]

I think this belongs here rather than on SB...

Koward's latest post on what he actually calls a blog is as incoherent as ever, but one thing that comes out is the way he bigs up Willminator - remember him? Apparently, in Karajerk's world, Willminator was a lone warrior, fighting against some guy called Jeff. Of course, in the real world, Willminator was blocked for 5 years with the comment "Deliberate insertion of false information; lying: I'll be watching to see if you try to unblock yourself again". Better luck next time, Kowardjou. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 20:51, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Like anyone gives a shit, this is what the coward is referring to. The initial email to Will (the one that Karajou sent to every conservative he could find) was legit. Subsequent emails "from me" posted by Will to his userpage were obviously fake. You can tell because he would edit the email after he already copy/pasted it.

It's typical of KJ just to be brave in his own echo chamber. Anyway, let's look at the following:

A place called a "trash heap" by one[1], and "inhabited by thugs" by another[2]. They're on record as using "cyber-terror tactics"[3] in an effort to remove Conservapedia from the internet; they're the ones who employ DDoS attacks...[4]

Four accusations, no citations. "by one" - Which 'one'? "by another" - Which other? "on record" - With the FBI? "employ" - where's the link to this irrefutable proof?

Jeff didn't lose KJ, you did, are and will continue to do so. Or you could provide proof beyond reasonable doubt for your claims, but like the FBI report, it just doesn't exist, does it?-- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 23:10, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

What I find myself thinking about is the negative connotation that Conservapedia has placed on the word "ram" for me. Before Obamacare passed, Conservapedia had stated things like "Obama's and the Democratic leadership’s stubborn determination to ram their socialistic health care plan down America's throat ..." and "... Barack Obama and the liberal big-spending Socialists in Congress are ramming socialized medicine down the throats of Americans ...". I think it was an interesting word choice of Andy's to say that the GOP rammed the anti-union bill through, considering that the term "rammed" was used so much against Obamacare. I guess it's just another word that CP has ruined for me. ~SuperHamster Talk 05:22, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
I think Andy means "ramming" in the sense of "passed legislation despite objections". In the case of Obamacare, the legislation was passed despite the very sensible objections of conservatives(death panels), whereas the anti-union bill is being passed despite the clueless objections of atheist unions. --Willfully Wrong (talk) 09:51, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Yes and no. In the case of ObamacareAnything the Dems ever do, it's ramming down our throats. If the Repubs ever ram, it's just normal, colloquial ramming. Now I know what you're thinking: what about Repubs in an airport restroom? Yes, throats may again be involved, but these are always RINOs. ONE / TALK 10:06, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Heres what I think. From what I've been reading, a majority of people in WI are siding with the unions and started recall efforts on those who can be leagaly recalled BEFORE this kamakazi by the GOP. Going back to what Nebuchadnezzar said, it may not be legal and the AG might reverse the decision but it would still look bad in the eyes of voters.--Thunderstruck (talk) 10:39, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Yep - even going by CP's own source, many, many, many, Wisconsin voters see this as EXTREMELY shady, if not outright illegal, so the GOP there could suddenly find their numbers dwindling, at the first opportunity given to Wisconsin voters. 81.151.240.53 (talk) 12:29, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

As someone from Wisconsin I can safely say people are mad at this legislation being pushed though, but at the same time there is considerable anger towards the "missing" Senators who people here are starting to feel are not doing their jobs. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:26, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm not from Wisconsin, but everything I've seen or read about it seems to suggest that the Senators are "missing" in an attempt to actually do their job - they knew the people of Wisconsin did not want this, so went "missing" in order to try to make it impossible for the Republicans to push it through. Unfortunately, they underestimated the lengths they would go to in order to push this through, and thus their attempt failed. I do have to say that, frankly, it was a bit naive of the Democrats not to see this coming, as all it required was for the Republicans to do an abrupt about-face on the entire basis for the measures detailed in this bill, and conveniently ignore their own arguments, and it's been my experience that Republican politicians these days, in general, have no qualms about being the lying, gutless, amoral bastards that such a thing requires. 81.151.240.53 (talk) 23:00, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Evilution at Work[edit]

Genetic mutation allows Hudson River fish to adapt to PCBs, dioxins. Quick, someone tell Andy and, uh, the other remaining editor. This could be a second Lenski. Mountain Blue 18:20, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Actually, this is a perfect story for Andy. You see, the fish adapted, thus proving microevolution, not macroevolution. In addition to that, it also proves that animals and humans can adapt to copious amounts of pollution. Wanna blast the atmosphere full of CO2 and methane? No problem, we'll adapt! Adapting is a common natural way for people to adapt to their environment. Therefore, global warming is a hoax and creationism is science. All right, I think I've been hanging around the deniosphere too long. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 18:38, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Andy, if you're readying, this reductio ad absurdum is right up your alley: Considering the fact that 99% of all global warming alarmists are evolutionists, why don't they believe life would just 'adapt' to warmer temperatures?

Psy claimed that Addison was a she rather than a he.

Perhaps[edit]

Maybe Ken finally got the message that multiple edits is not a Good Thing? Maybe he got told to use previews but couldn't get that through his OCD so he creates this a-here sock that can operate under different rules. Further speculating: He's installed some wikiware on his box so that he can edit to his heart's delight and when it's all a nice shiny brown turd simply copies and pastes to CP?
Occam's Razor says "no".
No: I'm going to go with:  K e n  D o l l  pays some poor schmuck to parse through his droppings via email and write a coherent (if laughably wonrg) posting, which he also does post on CP. 17:49, 10 March 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ

Reminds of the scene in Like Water for Chocolate. Based in catholic Mexico I have no idea how true this scene is but when a husband wants to do naughty things with his wife they have a sheet with a slit cut in it. The wife lies under the sheet, the husband on top. That way the husband never even has to look at the naughty bits where he does the naughty with his wife.

It's a communal account set up by Andy. The students have the login details and use them to post their 'work'.

Also it keeps trolls from socking up and trying to cut into the student stream, and keeps him from accidentally mistaking a real student for a troll and snaping at them.

Mixed messages on Libya[edit]

Not really worth a WIGO, but, from the CP news desk: "63% Say U.S. Should Stay Out of Libya Crisis." Scroll down a little: "Obama: Military action against Libya possible. Speaking after a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, President Barack Obama said the U.S. and its NATO allies are still considering a military response to violence in Libya. [33]Is this the winner of a Nobel Peace Prize?" and then: "Barack Hussein Obama made time for his first game of golf for the year. [41] Maybe he's done fixing the economy, winning the war in Afghanistan and helping to end civil war in Libya?" All right, I'm confused. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 02:49, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Very simple. Anything Obama does in any situation whatsoever, he's wrong. And a mooslem. --Kels (talk) 03:29, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Right, almost forgot this is CP. Is Obama's foreign policy to blame for the potential nuclear meltdown in Japan? More at eleven. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:53, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
I have been quite surprised by who is saying what in the debate over Libya. Ironically, many of the same factions who were yowling like banshees against the invasion of Iraq are now exhorting the U.S. to jump the gun in Libya's case. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 04:41, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
I wouldn't look for internal consistency in partisans opinions. I love the shift in opinions on the Australia Card when it went from a Labor Party proposal in the late 80s to the Liberal Party of Australia's proposal in early 00's. I remember seeing a collection of quotes from various pundits of both stripes 180 opinion rotations. - π 05:31, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
These are not partisans so much as ideologues. As any astute observer can tell, the actual aim of the ideologues in question in any given conflict is to throw as much support as possible behind the side that seems the most opposed to the Big Evil Oppressors; international law is merely a pawn in that game, to be appealed to or disregarded as the situation warrants. Everyone does this sort of thing, of course, but it is amusing to watch. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 05:40, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
I disagree. The anti-Iraq war people now want to strike Libya now Obama is in charge. One the other side look how quick some on the right wanted to abandon Iraq, and even Afghanistan, after Obama took over. - π 05:49, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Ah. The commentators I read were not quite so shallow and partisan in their thinking, but I suppose there are all kinds. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 06:02, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

I think it's possible to oppose an attack on Iran (a state that's relatively at peace with itself and showing no clear, obvious and present danger to its neighbors that can't be handled by diplomatic means for now) and to some support sort of humanitarian military intervention (a la Kosovo, or at least a la stated purpose of the Kosovo war) against Libya (collapsed into civil war/failed state/predatory state status, using brute military force against civilians) with not too much cognitive dissonance. Liberal interventionists who have read too much Michael Ignatieff and have fallen for the R2P/W2I doctrines are a particular breed of hawk, not necessarily the "Bomb, bomb, bomb, Bomb bomb Iran crowd. P-Foster (talk) 06:15, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm one of those leftists who opposed the Iraq war but would now like to see at least a no-fly zone established over Libya, and I don't see what's inconsistent about that. I've never been an isolationist or pacifist, you'll have to look at each case and decide whether or not it's both justifiable and a good idea to intervene. The latter point quite obviously did not apply to Iraq, and while we can't be sure about the extent of an eventual Western commitment to Libya, nobody is suggesting a massive invasion followed by long-term occupation. I understand the concerns of those who don't want to be pulled into another Middle Eastern adventure, but in this case, it's not like the initial aim is to take over the whole country and see how things turn out. Regarding the justification for this, well, the removal of an entrenched dictator is only going to happen at the cost of significant civilian casualties. Outsiders can't make the decision whether that's an acceptable price to pay, only the people themselves. In Libya, they've already made that decision, the war has already started, and there'll be bloodshet either way. If NATO can at least prevent some of these casualties at relatively little cost, it should be done. Röstigraben (talk) 07:44, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, in Iraq, we shouldn't have gone in like we did, as, based on the evidence, or rather lack of it, that we had for the reasons given, those reasons were simply not true, and we totally fucked up the aftermath of actually taking down Saddam to boot. In Libya, there is already an uprising going on against Gaddafi, so I would have no problem with direct military action, in order to support that uprising, as that is actually a legitimate reason for going in. Contrary to what ListenerX believes, it is perfectly possible to object to the Iraq war, whilst advocating action in Libya without being contradictory or hypocritical, and I wouldn't give a flying fuck if it was McCain in the White House, and not Obama - I'd still be saying this. 86.173.220.56 (talk) 20:09, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

The Arsefly must be the only "educator" around who works on the premise that a student starts with 10 marks per question, and is deducted one mark per 'error'; as opposed to the liberal/atheistic/evolutionist/etcist policy of there are 10 marks available, ergo the student needs to make 10 points in their answer. Also the premise that not giving any information or reasons whatsoever is only a single 'error' and thus only deserves the docking of one mark. Also also, does he really think this is fooling anyone? Himself? The homoskoolers? The homoskoolers' parents? Isn't it a (genuinely bleeding-heart) liberal position to not criticise and let thick kids know they're thick (as in don't mark them down, it's unfair, etc)? Fuck me, the more I think about this, the more it hurts. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 12:59, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
You have to remember that Andy cannot abide any criticism of himself, or his beliefs. If students were to get bad marks, then it would be an indication that either he's ab terrible teacher (we all know the answer to that) or homskollars aren't as clever as he'd have us believe. Thus it's vital for him to give high marks, to stroke his own massive ego. Unless, the answers disagree with his worldview, of course, then he mark savagely, to show how dumb liberals are.
Just a thought - if students are submitting their grades for Andy's "courses" to colleges as part of their admission - the colleges would only be looking at the grade, not the standard of the test? So Andy is deliberately inflating grades, to give his students a better chance. Fraud, surely? --PsyGremlinRunāt! 13:17, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Irony meter smashed[edit]

"A visitor here posts that "Wikipedia just admitted that its retention rate for editors has dropped from 40% to 12%. What they won't admit is that they have allowed politicized cabals to systematically drive off any editors that don't agree with their ultra-liberal world view!" So some random person who's made less than ten edits in the last yearimg is worthy of having their opinion quoted on the MPR? He's lucky he wasn't blocked for his account being static so long. SJ Debaser 20:00, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Seems like this calls for our own statistician to the stars, Larron, to pile on? DogP (talk) 20:23, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
It makes sense that its retention rate would drop precipitously, and it is hardly a sign of failure as the overall number of active editors is much higher than in the earlier years. Back in 2004ish and earlier Wikipedia was much smaller and not well known. About the only people involved were quite devoted to the project. Now that its taken off and become a top 10 website, you get a lot more casual people who make small changes and additions here and there, but don't hang around or really join the community (or whatever you want to call it). It reminds me of when Andy cited another sign that Wikipedia is close to failing, that its rate of new article creation had dropped off. Of course, its inevitable that it would; it's probably pretty hard for the average person to come up with a subject that is deserving of an article but doesn't have one yet. Speaking of which, I remember Andy in the past years making all sorts of predictions about the imminent demise of WP and it being overtaken by CP. Can anyone find links to some of his old statements about this? I'm sure his timeline of Wikipedia failure has come and gone, and I'd be curious to see how far off his predictions were. DickTurpis (talk) 20:56, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
(EC) Andy's cognitive dissonance is astounding, I mean how many editors do you need if all you create is 'concise' stubs? Wikipedia has become a huge resource but most of the mainstream work has surely been done. New stuff is continuously happening but adding that takes a lot less effort than the original compilation. Gaps are apparent mainly in small niche areas, things that CP would regard as unencyclopaedic. So only an obsessive is going to want to check every comma or rephrase the majority of content. For the average drive-by editor there is less to engage them than when the project started. On the otherhand CP has enormous gaps and contains few articles of substance. Ken's projects are useless as encyclopedia articles, they are only quote-mined polemics. Alger Hiss and KAL007 are about the only things that are covered to the same level as a WP article. As for the number of articles, WP now has 3.5 million compared with CP's 35,000. Which one has the greater need for additional content and more editors? At CP there are 438 'active' editors who have edited in the last 91 days but only 40 with more than 39 edits (3 a week) and if you remove TK, Willminator and Tzoran from that list you get 37 out of a total number of 38750 registered users. If even only 1 percent of those were genuine that gives you a retention rate of less than 10%.  Lily Inspirate me. 21:18, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

And hereimg is the response. I'll let Andy speak for himself: "Don't have a numeric answer, but based on experience our retention rate of quality editors is quite high. For example, there were three quality editors who registered at Conservapedia at the very beginning of the massive publicity in February 2007. Two of those three (none of whom I have ever met personally) are still frequent editors today."SuspectedReplicant retire me 22:16, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
And a quality editor is defined as one how hangs around. Ergo, Conservapedia has a high retention of quality editors. - π 22:27, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Conservapedia and Chernobyl[edit]

Of course they go over the top and accuse the wrong people, but this is actually a case of the stopped clock. Chernobyl really was overhyped, and most adverse health effects in the affected population were psychosomatic (e.g. due to fear, not radiation). See this summary of the WHO report. The situation in Japan is not as bad as portrayed in the media - there was no meltdown, no "nuclear tragedy", and it's not even remotely similar to Chernobyl. See here. The scaremongering of the anti-nuclear movement about U.S. reactors is rather predictable. --Tweenk (talk) 02:28, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Agreed. There are legitimate criticisms of nuclear energy - cost of plants and waste would probably be the top two - but this isn't one of them--Danielfolsom (talk) 04:24, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
So there's no need to worry about a meltdown, ever? P-Foster (talk) 05:26, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
I would say there's reason for caution, but the technology has advanced enough that it's not really a worry, no. And I believe I read that Japan's newer reactors were not threatened, because they had technology that would shut them down in the case of an earthquake.--Danielfolsom (talk) 05:29, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm sure that the evacuation of 170,000 people is probably completely unwarranted. P-Foster (talk) 05:32, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
I mean, to be honest I don't know too much about recent nuclear technology, but again, i'm pretty sure I read that the only reactors facing consequences are the old ones with older tech.

"We are assuming melt down has occurred", says a Japanese official. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 06:31, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

I do have to say that, whilst CP is technically right in saying the Chernobyl disaster was overhyped, it's not exactly a minor incident - 200,000 square kilometres of Europe was irradiated (albeit most of it to a relatively minor degree), there's a 30km area around Chernobyl that's still restricted due to heavy radiation, even 25 years later, and an estimated 4000 people have or are going to die due to the meltdown, even according to that WHO report. Also, contrary to CP's page on Chernobylimg, the evacuation of Pripyat and the surrounding area was done very quickly and efficiently (even if it was done by lying to people by leading them to believe they were only going to be away for three days, not forever), thus Chernobyl was actually an example of the USSR managing to provide quick and efficient transportation in crisis situations. The real problem regarding the evacuation was that it was delayed by about 24 hours, as the authorities saw fit to try to conceal the scale of the disaster, and therefore did not evacuate until it became absolutely clear it was necessary. In contrast, Japan have done an evacuation pretty much straight away. Another error is the claim that the city of Chernobyl is still inhabited by about 10,000 people. There are people who refused to be evacuated, or have re-entered the exclusion zone, but this population is currently estimated to be about 400, only half of whom actually live in the city of Chernobyl itself. It should be noted, though, that page is actually a case of almost plagiarism, as it more or less mirrors this, except for a few alterations to change it from being a huge disaster to being a minor, but massively overhyped one, plus a couple of other minor alterations, and these errors are from that page. 86.161.41.209 (talk) 13:39, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

"Ever since radiation from Chernobyl rained down on the UK 23 years ago, sales of sheep in affected areas have been restricted." [3] Tell Cumbrian sheep farmers it was overstressed. 13:55, 13 March 2011 (UTC) SusanG Toast
Wait, what? Those farmers would appear to *agree* that Chernobyl was overstressed. They think that the restrictions are too stringent. Chernobyl happened the year I was born, so I can't say much to whether it was overstressed, but "farmers affected by Chernobyl who express the opinion that their sheep are fine" would say that Chernobyl9or maybe more to the point, radiation) is being overstressed, so it's not a very good argument, I think.--Willfully Wrong (talk) 23:38, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
I was born in '86, so I obviously don't remember it, but I'm told that there was a major panic in Kodiak and obviously it turned out to be nothing. There is a map circulating that shows a hypothetical radiation plume beelining it for kodiak and spreading radiation that would kill half of Alaska.

Probably like many here, I've been surfing news sites like crazy since the Japan tragedy struck looking for the best source, and re. Andy's claim of "over-hyped media claims about nuclear power plant meltdowns", it's been VERY obvious to me that Fox News's site is the ne plus ultra in promoting armageddon (although they've often had the best photo coverage). For the past two days, it's been plugging "meltdown" on its front page like mad, while at the same time you have the NY Times, Wash. Post, Guardian, London TImes, Al Jazeera, Le Monde, Daily Yomiuri, Asahi Shinbun, Hindustan TImes, Deutsche Welle, The Age have been much less panicky. At the time of writing, Fox has "Japan Fights to Prevent Multiple Nuclear Reactor Meltdowns as 180,000 Flee" as it's giant headline, as against the LA Times' "Engineers work to contain reactor damage". Just sayin'. DogP (talk) 00:11, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

I don't know why you're so surprised at Andy's reaction. Ghouls like him and Karajou wait, salivating, for the next shooting, or disaster, so they can score cheap political points.

There are photos of Shinmoedake erupting dated January if you Google it. Can anyone clarify? Jack Hughes (talk) 13:49, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
From what I can gather it started erupting sometime early Jan but the debate I guess is did it start erupting because of the tectonic movements taking place that ultimately led to the quake. And has the quake caused further disruption which will cause the eruption to increase in intensity. I'm no vulcanologist so I will leave it to those of you more knowledgable to answer those ones. Or we could ask terry chuckarse, no doubt he can explain it all. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:47, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
I have a friend who lives in Miyazaki, not far from the volcano. It's been sending out ash for a couple of months now, he mentions it on FB fairly often. He also says the most recent activity did not break windows like some news reports are saying, but rather it was mixed up with stories about the initial eruption, which did. --User:Kels@school

Yes, Andy, predicting earthquakes is an inexact science,img but unlike you, scientists don't go gloating when they get it right.

Also, if atheists are so bad at predicting natural disasters, where are the creationist models for predicting them? --PsyGremlinSprich! 14:53, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

It's not only that that face palms on this but the earth quake took place at a known subduction zone where just shortly before a sizeable tremor had taken place, as predicted by the theory of plate tectonics. He really is a fucking moron isn't he. 'Oh look, it didnt happen where they thought it would happen but instead happened at a point which demonstrates plate tectonics in action therefore goddit'. Shitehead. Of the highest order. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:00, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Whoa. I didn't realise that any 6000-year-old-universe-creationists denied plate fucking tectonics! Mr Schlalfy, I appear to have misunderestimated you, I obviously hadn't realised that Noah's impossible flood was an alternative to plate tectonics. How the hell does that 'theory' even work? Are they (or is it just he?) really saying that the continents floated apart on floodwater after it pissed down for 40 days? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 15:22, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
If you look at the crap Chuckarse has written above, that's pretty much it. Not only did it rain for 40 days, but there were huge earthquakes, releasing all the subterranean water, plus the Earth turned into a giant nuclear reactor for a few days, which is where all the C14 comes from and after all that, the continents drifted apart. And you'd be a liar and a baby-eating commie to suggest otherwise. --PsyGremlinSermā! 15:31, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
