flade ingration[edit]

lowest grades andy's given yet, even if they are oddly regularimg--"Shut up, Brx." 02:49, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

The fact that he makes marked papers public is disturbing. Also disturbing, this questionimg:
36. New Jersey was the location for which of the following important events in American history?
I. The location of George Washington’s headquarters during the Revolutionary War.
II. The location of the duel brought by Aaron Burr against Alexander Hamilton.
III. The state where Woodrow Wilson was governor before becoming president.
IV. The location of the founding of Conservapedia.
(a) I and IV.
(b) I, II, III, and IV.
(c) I, III, and IV.
(d) II, III, and IV.
His delusions of grandeur are getting worse. --Night Jaguar (talk) 03:11, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
(For girls only)
When during American History would you expect chivalry to have been the weakest?
Arghhhhh ...(he's obviously looking for "The Roaring Twenties and the 1960s"). --Night Jaguar (talk) 03:26, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Or pre-European contact, but obviously that doesn't count as part of American history. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 04:27, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
More imporantly WHO THE HELL PHRASES MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS LIKE THAT!? Ancient Greek Pegasus icon.png 08:18, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
How much longer until he reorganizes American history into the pre- and post-Conservapedian eras? Maybe then he'd accept the usage of "CE" after all. Röstigraben (talk) 08:26, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Question 29 takes the cake:
29. The longest-running march on the nation’s capital is in protest to a decision rendered by the U.S. Supreme Court on January 22, 1973. What was that decision, and what did it do?
(a) Roe v. Wade, which gave criminals the right to remain silent.
(b) Miranda v. Arizona, which required police to read suspects their rights before questioning them.
(c) Roe v. Wade, which created a new constitutional right to abortion.
(d) Roe v. Wade, which allows government to seize private property.
Wow... I wonder which one it could be? --OompaLoompa (talk) 12:00, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
I knew the general answer after "29. The longest-running march". Seriously, Andy's tendency of patting his own shoulder and of constantly picking his pet subjects makes this less of an "American History" exam and more of a "How well do you know Andy Schlafly?" exam. Couldn't he just have asked something like "On January 22, 1973, the US Supreme Court made a decision that many people still vocally disagree with. What was that decision?" and then given four plausible and real Supreme Court cases so people can't simply narrow down the answer by eliminating the obviously bogus ones? --Sid (talk) 12:25, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

"conservapedia becoming the new center of all things"[edit]

for a quick count and im curious, what is the current list of things they say conservapedia is either replacing or is just in general decline?--Mikalos209 (talk) 03:59, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

I likely forgot a few but: Book stores, TV, Wikipedia, Facebook, liberalism in the US... --Sid (talk) 10:39, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
The bible...--Mikalos209 (talk) 12:21, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
I believe he said it about cable news. 江斯顿What is it now? 19:45, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Phhhwwt![edit]

Once again Ken deletes Talk:Main Page.  Lily Inspirate me. 08:21, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

You have to wonder how they can keep the website operational with that sort of expertise at the helm. Ancient Greek Pegasus icon.png 08:26, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
He archived a part of the page and hid one comment:

Sorry, long time viewer, first time poster. I love Conservapedia! I log on pretty much daily to see what craziness you guys have concocted to bill as fact. And, I don't mean to be rude, but... I'm pretty sure your increased traffic is mostly due to people stopping by to laugh at you guys. Keep up the good work! User:jclough

The truth hurts... larronsicut fur in nocte 08:50, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
The fact that Ken still doesn't know how, or refuses, to use over-sight speaks volumes. It's much the same as his inability to use preview and minor edit. He's either pig-headed and would rather make CP look stupid than learn a new trick, or he's genuinely too thick, or too demented, to learn a new trick. --OompaLoompa (talk) 09:19, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
neither nor: he is just to busy to fit project learning stuff on a wiki into his schedule already filled with flying fortresses... larronsicut fur in nocte 09:38, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Ken knows how to oversight (not too well, but he knows). He's just an egoist and doesn't give a shit about anybody else, so he tends to pick the path of least work:
  • "Hey, I just spent ten edits on a (user) talk page, and all of this makes me look like a fool!" --> *delete* *restore without history*
  • "Hey, people are calling out my mistakes on talk pages!" --> *redirect to pet article* *lock*
  • "Hey, I just made five hundred edits in two days to my pet article, even though I said I'd be away! But I can't just delete it because that would bork my precious pageviews!" --> *oversight*
And he gets away with it all because the other sysops also don't give a shit about the community and won't speak up as long as nobody butts into their niches. --Sid (talk) 10:33, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Ken is legitimately skillful at not interfering with the other sysops. --Opcn (talk) 12:51, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
I think they really just don't give a fuck unless one of them steps on another's crazy toes. Ken deleting pages right and left to cover up his ineptitude and shitty judgment would be an outrage on any other wiki. It sure as shit wouldn't have been permitted to go on for years. Nutty Roux (talk) 16:58, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
The thing is that Ken burning talk pages also covers up the idiocy and abuse of all other sysops. Transparency and accountability have always been the two biggest enemies of CP sysops. --Sid (talk) 17:48, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

More chuckibum stupidity[edit]

So according to chuckie this link spamimg proves there was a flood. Except of course that the 2 references cited in his link spamed article say the opposite and both EXPLICITY state the fossils are hundreds of millions of years old. And as is pointed out by WilliamB1img chuckie simply misunderstands this as he does with just about every other thing he opines on. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:07, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

If Vomitbottom seriously believes that the only reason a shrimp fossil can be on land is due to the Flood, he's crazier than Andy. --OompaLoompa (talk) 15:13, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Actually, it appears Andy believes thatimg. --Night Jaguar (talk) 16:05, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
That's wonderful. "The entire world was swallowed by a Flood, during which the earth became a giant nuclear reactor and 8 people on a wooden boat survived" is more plausible than "there used to be water here, but it dried up." Insane! --OompaLoompa (talk) 16:08, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
I was wandering around recently and happened to look into a pond and bugger me if there wasn't a fresh water shrimp in it. Now I just assumed that this was because shrimps had adapted and some had adapted to live in ponds. Now, thanks to chuckies incisive insight, I understand that in fact there had been a global flood the night before and I had slept through it. Praise be to goat. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:39, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Next up: Scientists find giant shrimp at salad bar. The only possible explanation is Jesus! Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 16:29, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
MPR headline: Boat found at bottom of ocean. Sailing is just another liberal lie to stop people reading the Bible. Boats are heavier than Jesus, so must sink. --OompaLoompa (talk) 16:33, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
(a) I don't know why creationists bother trying to come up with naturalistic explanations when they can't even keep their proposed mechanisms straight - most of this bullshit is just reactionary nonsense in that it's not even capable of being adequately descriptive (because it's so wrong), let alone making falsifiable predictions (as to the supernatural shit); (b) if the world was repopulated within a few hundred years of the "flood" and creationists believe it takes mere thousands for fossils to form, why the fuck don't they just say human beings literally carried that fucking shrimp up onto dry land and that that's better evidence of the flood. Oh right, because that shrimp, while "out of place" with what some thought its previous place in the geologic column was, was found with other salt water sea dwelling creatures from that same habitat. No rabbits. No people, pottery, or cigarette butts. No giraffes. Occam's razor indeed. But hey, whatever's convenient. Someone needs to go sit in on an Andy homeschool class to confirm he's teaching this kind of "those throw-away ad hoc bullshit is more plausible than the entirety of 120 years of scientific knowledge" to children. Nutty Roux (talk) 16:43, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Does anybody understand what http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Talk:Main_Page&diff=872965&oldid=872964img means?--Mikalos209 (talk) 17:12, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Not intended to be a factual statement. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 17:27, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
I have no idea what Andy is trying to say there. --Night Jaguar (talk) 18:11, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
This is just so SO andy. And other cp'ers as well. A sysop posted some random piece of bollocks on my blog. I can either agree that what they posted is complete, self-contradictory, bollocks which is unsupported by the link provided in the citation or I can bluster, throw more bollocks in to the discussion and then banhammer anyone who shows us to be fucking morons. And their site is still growing. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:24, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Has Andy been drinking again? "I don't think the 1950s were as conservative as today."img The 50s are known for being extremely conservative. --Night Jaguar (talk) 18:50, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
That is brilliant andy in so many ways. LLoydr. 'I think that to describe a movie which in some way glorifies a system in which non-whites were denied basic rights and claim that it means that every boy had a chance to be great is not really valid'. Andy - 'You are absolutely right, those poor white christian homeschoolers were terribly oppressed at that time'. The man is a cnut. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:17, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Never let facts get in the way of your bias[edit]

Moral, god fearing Christians always outperform baby eating hedonistic atheistsimg. Because North Dakota has lower unemployment than Oregon, and North Dakota is faithful, church-going, and Christian! While Oregon, well they are just a bunch of debauched god deniers! While North Dakota's 3.3% unemployment is much better than Oregon's 9.6%;  K e n  D o l l  ignores traditional Bible belt state unemployment rates like Mississippi (10.4%), Florida (10.8%), Georgia (9.9%), and South Carolina (9.8%), have they suddenly become deep blue states of liberalism and secularism when I wasn't looking? Oh those pesky facts! --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:13, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Just wow. I spent 5 minutes clicking around Ken's shitsmears that I'll never get back. What in the world does Andy think he's doing letting a guy like that loose on his blog. Are atheists smarter than the average bear? Pictures of ponies with captions! Fat atheists. Hooboy. Nutty Roux (talk) 20:36, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Not only does Andy let Ken run wild, but he actually steals Ken's materialimg. How sad. --Night Jaguar (talk) 03:46, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
I love how that is such a failure on so many levels. "Fat farm" isn't even a word, it's a phrase, an obsolete one at that. I also enjoy how he implies all overweight people are selfish, he may want to rethink that. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 09:33, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Why we love Ed[edit]

He just never ceases to amaze and astound: [1]img --Simple (talk) 23:28, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

At this point he can be replaced with a bot that takes random sentences out of some text, searches Google for the noun that pops up the most and creating an article out of it. And sometimes it makes a random creepy comment on a talk page. BotEd! --ǓḤṂ³ 23:37, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Caps for permalinkimg and edit commentimg so our 403'd friends can weep with us. --Sid (talk) 23:56, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
OH GOD, YOU MADE ME LOOK AT THE LASTimg FEWimg ED STUBS!img *SOB* --Sid (talk) 00:04, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
His article on TextPad doesn't even mention what it is... just something he had trouble finding. That's the sort of thing that would be proper for a help forum ("I had this problem, so I'll post the solution to it so everyone can see it") not an encyclopedia... His article on assertions is pure gold too, because once again, it doesn't tell the hypothetical person searching for the term on CP (of which there are almost certainly... 0?) actually what an assertion is, just that it's useful. Awful. Simply awful. άλφαTalk 00:12, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
I wish I'd made a million stubs when I edited at CP... between the Ed-style of creating a plethora of useless articles, and the Ken strategy of taking a massive amount of edits to make a small change, I could have made ten stubs and shot my edit count through the roof. άλφαTalk 00:14, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
This was a hilarious stub, but nothing will ever top "Two meters".--Colonel Sanders (talk) 02:18, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, though, I enjoyed Ed's in-depth biography of JFK Jr.img. And look at his recent detailed article on economic downturnsimg.
It's pretty funny how each CP sysop is off doing their own crazy thing. --Night Jaguar (talk) 03:42, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
As long as they pledge loyal fidelity to king Andy, they can do whatever they like in their own fiefdoms; Andy doesn't care about the quality of their work, he just wants their adulation.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 09:35, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
He also likes it when people add lots and lots of chaff so that CP can keep up the pretense of being more than just a political/religious attack site. Screw the article quality, it's all about quantity! --Sid (talk) 10:56, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
MOAR STUBBY!--Colonel Sanders (talk) 22:32, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
...that's a useless stubimg not made by Ed, but by a guy... who shares your last name. =| To be fair, it's better than an EdStub since it actually gives us a sort-of-working definition instead of just an utterly tangential comment, which is why I glanced at the history in the first place. --Sid (talk) 00:10, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Chuckarse and Lunar Bukkake Theory?[edit]

I think that's what he's going for in his latest linkspam.img Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 23:34, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

I am curious to see if that is what he met, but that would require giving a hit to his link whoring site, and I am not that curious. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 02:13, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
On a related note, has anyone noticed that Lunar bukkake theory at RW is the #1 search result for that term on Google? Junggai (talk) 10:28, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
You just made me Google "bukkake". I hate you forever. --OompaLoompa (talk) 10:42, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes, when you stop believing in gOD, the weight of the world drops from Her Almighty shoulders and falls onto your hips, waist and thighs, baby Jesus wets himself, but it's okay, it's Holy water that turns into wine (and/or cotton candy, [sugar floss for you Brits], if the viewer is under 21). 14:47, 29 May 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ

Andy and the horse and buggy... wait... what?[edit]

anybody else notice he seems to have taken a liking to that old school mode of transportation for his analogies? http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Talk:Main_Page&diff=prev&oldid=873577img --Mikalos209 (talk) 15:17, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

  • User:img Has there ever been one single positive story on the internet about Conservapedia???
  • Andy:img I don't think "Horse and Buggy News" carried positive stories about automobiles either!

So, is Andypants implying that whatever takes over from the internet will write favourably about Conservapedia? Jebus! I swear the man is taking debating lessons from Ken and Rob. --OompaLoompa (talk) 15:22, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

I think thisimg is more telling: "As to other websites on the internet, I can't think of any that combine education, politics, and religion -- the three fields that count most -- as efficiently as Conservapedia does." «-Bfa-» 15:26, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
What are you talking about? THERE IS NOTHING BUT conservpaedia in the future. the fact facebook, normal news websites, TV, books, the bible, and god knows what else is flocking there proves oneday, conservapedia will be all that exists. --Mikalos209 (talk) 15:30, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
That's it, these delusions need an article. I created: Conservapedia:Andy Schlafly's Delusions of Grandeur. Feel free to edit it or add your own examples. --Night Jaguar (talk) 23:21, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
This for me raises a question; what's wrong with what Andy said? First, a short answer occurred to me; everything. Secondly, a long answer occurred to me; Andy's explanation would explain why one group, or a selective group of publications might poo poo them, but if there is one thing that the internet has it is a diversity of opinions. Yet with all that diversity everyone seems to look at conservapedia and see nothing but fail. Once again Andy has committed the fallacy of hasty generalization. --Opcn (talk) 05:00, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Right Wing Wingnuttery[edit]

You couldnt link it why... thanks for spamming the F oiut of thisw page with it. --Mikalos209 (talk) 22:26, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
Maybe because it (currently) doesn't seem to exist (tried Google search and also CP-searched for the supposed author's name, no results) and was just copypasted straight from this "NewsWithViews" site that's mentioned towards the bottom. Strikes me as typical Snopes-worthy chain letter material: "Here, I found this stunning piece by an author who uses a pseudonym and didn't include information on how to contact her! It was written years ago somewhere, but I find it highly relevant right now!!!" --Sid (talk) 00:02, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Reading that makes me wish it was possible to e-mail a bitch-slap.

Devone sees the flaw in User:C's, er, uh, (let's call it) "logic"; conservative's link shows an effort to get Dawkins to the podium by raising the specter of Dawkins being regarded as a coward, by a friend and colleague...not that anyone on User:C's side ever alludes to, much less leveling the charge of cowardice. 02:35, 26 May 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ

Slander (defamation) is a legal term that means spreading false information about someone orally; libel is the same in writing. Calling someone a coward is not slander nor libel under the First Amendment. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 14:05, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure whether asserting Dawkins is a coward (if he's even doing that - he's such an absolutely terrible writer who tends to say nothing of his own preferring to link and quote dump) is a statement of fact or an opinion. Do you have a handle on that legal question? The First Amendment defense would be along the lines of the affirmative defense for defamation against public figures from NYT v. Sullivan, only creates a defense and doesn't therefore render the statement not defamatory. In fact, for a First Amendment defense to even apply, a court would have to agree that the statement is defamatory but that it's protected under the Constitution. Otherwise it's just an instance of the plaintiff not carrying his burden. Nutty Roux (talk) 14:51, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
The United States has the most liberal free speech laws anywhere in the world (so says Floyd Abrams). You can mock someone, you can call them names, you can use racial and religious slurs. Calling someone a coward, saying that it is a fact that they are a coward, is an opinion because there is no definitive legal test for cowardice. Ken could go further and call Dawkins a "racist coward" if he wanted, and still be protected. Whether he gets sued or not is one story, but the lawsuit would not be successful. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 15:17, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
You're absolutely right. I can't believe I didn't remember the difference. It's not necessarily so intuitive until you do the prudential analysis of how you'd even tell the difference without an objective standard. Thanks. Nutty Roux (talk) 15:38, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Just to add my two cents, as I understand it with regard to our (NZ) laws calling someone a coward would almost always fall under "fair comment" (formerly known as "honest opinion"). It would, however, be actionable if one said 'A is a coward because they did xyz' and the person did not in fact do xyz. But that would require damage to the persons reputation that would accrue from reasonable people thinking that not only did the person do xyz AND that this would imply cowardice. But then I have never handled a defamation case (who has? - they are pretty rare these days) so take it with a slight grain of salt. --DamoHi 21:23, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

That's what I love about this place. "This is what I think" -> "No, here's where you are incorreect" -> "Oh yes, I see my mistake." It's refreshing as a cool breeze compared to "This is what I think" -> "You're fat. I WINZ!" Carlaugust (talk) 20:01, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

You see that is the FUNDAMENTAL problem with rational, intelligent people. Whether they be liberals, atheists or religious conservatives. When someone points out our errors and explains why we are incorrect we say 'thanks, you have educated me and expanded my knowledge. The fact you have made me reconsider my preconceptions is an added bonus and I have now altered my world view based on the facts you advanced'. cp sysops say 'youre atheist so youre fat so I win. Hur hur.'
And I lied about the religious conservatives, sorry. Conservatives can do it. Religious people can do it, though they seldom do in my experience. Religious conservatives are NEVER wrong. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:16, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Agree Carl/Oldus. Rational people don't assume that their opinions and beliefs are the truth, but the truth as best we know it. I also don't mind being mistaken and having it pointed out to me, since I'm human and sometimes don't read things closely or wasn't exposed to a piece of information, or perhaps got it wrong. However, if we are in a heated argument and you get something wrong or make a typo then it's YOU'RE A FUCKING MORON! time, ha! --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 20:42, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
In relation to Leotardo's comment above, a defamatory statement is one which exposes the subject to hatred, ridicule or contempt. An accusation of cowardice is certainly capable of being defamatory. Further, as I understand it, the statement will be assumed to be false by the court unless the defendant can prove it to be true. Also, clearly, this would be a libel rather than a slander. The point here, however, seems to be more about whether it is encyclopaedic, not whether an actual libel has been committed. At one point at least, Ken said CP was "an encyclopedia and not a dictionary"img. The only reason the word "coward" is defined at all on Conservapedia is so that Ken can use the definition to criticise Dawkins. Not what I would call encyclopaedic. --Horace (talk) 21:56, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
P.S. No discussion of defamation is complete without the following quote from Othello:
'Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands:
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him
And makes me poor indeed.
--Horace (talk) 22:19, 26 May 2011 (UTC) (on behalf of William Shakespeare).
Hi Horace, unfortunately you are confusing your interpretation of defamation/libel law, which is state law, with First Amendment protections, which are federal and supreme. If you are curious about what is protected speech, an interesting read is Phelps v. Snyder, where the court gives a rundown of how far our free speech can go in the context of a rather dramatic issue.[4] You can think of it another way: if people could go around suing for being called "Coward" or "Stupid" or "Jerk" pretty much everyone would be sued, all the time. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 22:35, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
I don't think that I am confusing those issues. All I say is that an accusation of cowardice is clearly capable of being defamatory. If the 1st Amendment provides a shield then that is another matter and it may be that a suit would not succeed for that reason. The allegation remains potentially defamatory so far as I can see (although I confess at this point to being an Australian with a limited grasp of US law). As for whether people sue over being called a coward: they do (certainly in other common law jurisdictions). But my point really was that this is nothing to do with whether a successful suit could be brought. This is to do with whether it is at all appropriate to attempt character assassination by way of a purported dictionary definition of the word cowardice. In the end this is just another example of Ken crapping on Andy's blog to further his anti-Dawkins/anti-evolution campaign. It runs totally contrary to any sensible concept of how an encyclopaedia should be constructed. But, then again, isn't that exactly what we have come to expect from these people? --Horace (talk) 23:09, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps under Australian law you are right, but not under U.S. A U.S. court is not going to get involved in judging whether someone is a coward or not - there's not test for that, and it is highly subjective. I would be surprised if in Australia it's not the same thing, but that's more up your alley. I agree re: Ken crapping on wiki. The other aspect is that Dawkins would have to prove damages, highly unlikely, b/c courts award for harm, not for being mean. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 23:38, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
And perhaps you are correct under US law but Professor Dawkins is British, specifically English, and under English case law (thanks in no small part to the moron Eady) any publication available in the UK can be sued for libel in a UK court. No matter how small the ciculation in the UK. Nor even if it paid for subscription only website as one site he ruled against recently was, it had 30 subscribers in the UK. So Dawkins could quite easily sue in the UK should he choose to do so and if he could show damage then he would probably win. Damages would be hard to claim, as I suspect ken doesn't have a passport and has probably never left his home town let alone the country. Incidentally, I disagree with Eady on just about everything, he's the moron who is handing out these super-injunctions willy nilly as well, but unfortunately his descisions do form case law in the UK until one of them is overturned by the supreme court. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:19, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
To show damages is a high bar. I'm going off U.S. law here, but Ken would actually need to be someone who has spread false information in such a way that Dawkins has suffered economic harm. So while we on this chat room who obsess over CP enjoy these sorts of discussions, Dawkins would laugh at the suggestion that Conservapedia has had any impact on his career, right after saying, "Who said that? Who are they?" We are elevating Ken by actually entertaining the laughable idea that he has caused any harm to Richard Dawkins that Dawkins now has a viable lawsuit. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 13:39, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
Actually Leo, Eady has already allowed a case to go forward in the UK courts in which a Russian businessman sued a Russian publication in the UK courts based on the fact that the Russian publication had a subscription only website and approximately 30 subscribers were in the UK. There was no evidence that any of those subscribers had accessed the story in question and there was no evidence that material harm had been caused. However Eady in his stupidity found in the plaintiffs favour and awarded damages. The fact that cp is an American site, hosted in America, makes no difference at all in UK libel law. Should Dawkins want to sue then he could do so in the UK courts and likely win.
Dawkins won't because, if he even knows about ken the coward, he thinks the same of him as the rest of us but if he wanted to do then he would almost certainly win, expecially as I doubt ken would bother to attend to court to defend the case and so would almost certainly have judgment entered against him in default. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:13, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
I don't know what Eady's place and influence in British law is, but you are probably right. The U.S. has the most liberal free speech laws in the world, and I'm accustomed to our standards and have trouble relating to others' limits. I seriously doubt Ken, former repo man, has the cash to cross the Atlantic, so I think he's safe from any judgments Eady would hand down. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 14:20, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
It'd interesting as hell, that's for sure. Dawkins merely acknowledging Ken's existing would leave Ken to ejaculate violently. Ken being forced to cease and desist from slandering Dawkins would also be interesting, red telephones and all. Occasionaluse (talk) 14:22, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Uncle Ed on WP[edit]

Ed is the subject of an ANI thread on Wikipedia (the "Personal attack by OrangeMarlin" thread). Dunno if this should go in WIGO or on Ed's page. Either way, enjoy. —Tom Morris (talk) 10:08, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

I fully expect Ed to rant and ramble on CP today or tomorrow. It's always like that: Ed tries the "I'm just an innocent man asking innocent questions, trying to improve this project that I care deeply about!" routine on WP, people instantly see through his agenda (it helps that he showed people his vision of how it should be done on CP), Ed gets slapped down on WP, Ed goes to CP to rant about how WP sucks and how it's not NPOV. I pity any non-parodist, non-sysop editor on CP right now, because if Ed catches any of them, they're toast. --Sid (talk) 10:49, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
(ec)Isn't it nice that Ed has places on WP where he can run squealing "Wa! Somebody was mean to me." If only he wasn't a 2-faced cunt and allowed the same thing on CP, instead of going, "What? You have a complaint? Where's your writing plan? Die! Die! Die!" Also, his creepy use of "uncle" really creeps me out. And I wouldn't like to be editing CP today - Ed got smacked down, he's going to be in a mean mood. --OompaLoompa (talk) 10:51, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
Speaking of Ed on WP, did you know that "undue weight" is a new rule that is unique to Wikipedia? Ed is still clinging to the notion that "NPOV" should mean "We shouldn't imply that any view is correct (because that wouldn't be neutral) - instead, let every article become a pro/con debate fest with all sides getting equal weight so that the reader can make up his own mind!" --Sid (talk) 11:05, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

That's pretty much what it amounted to, yes. I think it started out with less sinister purposes, but failed because no sysop dared to mess with another sysop (which, yeah, renders the point of such a page moot). So users would complain, and usually only the abusing sysops (and his buddies) would check in on the page, with predictable results. --Sid (talk) 11:45, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
These stood out as perfectly capturing nearly everything Ed is about:
  • "using the Conservapedia rules on verification" and "Trying to bring Conservapedia policy to Wikipedia" invite ridicule and scorn by everyone outside Conservapedia, but to Ed being accused of those things amounts to "being maligned with personal remarks" as far as he's concerned. The same policy holds true on Conservapedia - calling any attention whatsoever to admin abuses or raising questions about arbitrary editorial decisions has Ed popping up out of nowhere to confront the editor with the standard "I don't see you contributing to our encylopedia constructively, I'm going to block your account indefinitely until you provide me (a little dick asshole who postures nonstop and creates nothing of value in his life if CP and WP are any gauge of his ability) with a Writing Plan I'll never even read."
  • "Note that I am not claiming that a disagreement over what goes into an article is a violation of rules by anyone; rather, I am asking how I can be a better contributor" means "I'm going to ignore that I've been accused of violating the rules over and over and over and over but when I'm attacking this other editor for accusing me of putting stuff into an article in violation of the rules I'm going to continue ignoring the rules, try to hoodwink people who only are skimming, and then JAQ off a little. *splurt*"

Ken has a history of adjusting and readjusting and readjusting image sizes in his pet articles.

P-Foster (talk) 15:44, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
He didn't readjust in this wigo; he replaced one photo with another.

Birds of Karajou[edit]

I find it fascinating that Karajou keeps on adding articles about birdsimg that include their taxonomy. Isn't Conservapedia creationist? Present-day taxonomy is increasingly influenced by evolutionary theory (e.g. cladistics), so it is strange for creationists to pay so much attention to it. One would think they ought prefer baraminological taxonomy, although I doubt anyone has tried to work out baraminological taxonomy to the required level of detail that it could possibly compete with mainstream taxonomy.

They did have a brief period where PJR and co. were having at the moonie and mormon contingent for their heretical beliefs. Eventually Andy put a stop to it, and made it so that insinuating that members of lunatic sects weren't proper Christians was anathema.

Ken continues shitting on the wiki[edit]

Another instance ofimg  K e n D o l l ' s  crusade to add references to obesity everywhere.

Oddly enough, I currently can't connect to CP (no 403, just continuous "Connecting..." until the time-out occurs), but my bet is "Never!" since Ken will inevitably lose interest in the obesity meme the moment he can think of something even more idiotic. --Sid (talk) 22:31, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

A couple of time over the past couple of years, Conservative has focused the crazy on Human, who builds loudspeakers for a living; he'll write (and then delete) articles about speakers and make snarky comments in the edit summaries about trying to damage someone's business--at one point, I think he even made noises about launching his own speaker business, but that might just be another pesky flashbak on my part.

I'm curious (and I know the US is the land of the free) but it seems to me as if somebody highly unqualified for the position is handing out financial advice.

Does he have to register as some sort of financial advisor, in order to give such advice? --OompaLoompa (talk) 11:56, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm not a lawyer (especially not an American one), but I'd be honestly surprised. Even ignoring the "I think he's not telling anybody that he's a qualified, certified financial advisor" part, he's just some random guy on the Internet posting unsolicited advice - if you follow it without some sort of contract between you two, I'd say you can only blame yourself. But again, I'm not a lawyer, so it's possible I'm missing something here! --Sid (talk) 12:38, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Ken moratorium CLXVI[edit]

Alternatively, I think we should encourage him.

Just now Rob accuses us of killing Kenny too. --OompaLoompa (talk) 09:52, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

I think I left the word "bigger", possibly "humongous" or even "ginormous" out of my reply. --OompaLoompa (talk) 10:48, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
The problem with encouraging him to go on a 60 hour edit bender is that he tends to edit only one essay, or even just one paragraph, in that time span. He's ends up not doing much damage to CP, only to himself, the poor lamb. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 14:28, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
What about the problem that, while super easy, setting him off like that is also incredibly cruel? He's a developmentally disabled and/or mentally ill man. It's not funny. It's sad. How many weeks of months of his life has he lost to obsessively chaining together 16 byte edits or repeatedly resizing an image on a backwater wiki? The only value in that is showing Andy Schlafly and his thugs to be the exploitationists they are. Not even Joaquin is above being criticized for saying nothing while his opportunist buddies take advantage of Ken's episodes, all for pageviews, even though they've secretly admitted they think his articles are atrocious and know people come to laugh at them. Nutty Rouxnever mind 16:27, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
It's this theory that they have that any page view, any mention, anywhere, in any context, is a sign of their robust influence. Ken brings that. It's Westboro Baptist Church: getting the message out is more important than persuading people or having their ideas seriously considered. They are building a monument out of turds, and they'll do anything to have people come to smell and look at it, even if it's with disgust (real conservatives would never disagree with such a magnificent turd monument, so their criticism doesn't count). Nutty, I think you have a point, but I don't know if any of them can tell that Ken is developmentally disabled because he says the same things that they all say, just in much more juvenile terms. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 16:52, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
Jesus fuck you're right. All bets were off when Andy Schlafly started repeating the "fat atheist" stuff. Nutty Rouxnever mind 17:11, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
Right, and when Andy started to do that, it answered the question, "Does CP care more about being a serious [conservative] educational resource, or does it care more about 'pissing off' the liberals?" --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 17:42, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
It isn't even about that, it is about Andy building a house of cards purely for his own self-aggrandizement, so he can live in denial of the fact he has no influence in the conservative movement. The other sysops go along because Conservapedia gives them the feeling that their lives have some meaning, some purpose, and a taste of "power"; because without it what else would each of them have?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 21:13, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Conservapedia and Alexa[edit]

I though this was interesting, on Alexa's Conservapedia page:

"Conservapedia has a three-month global Alexa traffic rank of 52,872. The site has a relatively good traffic rank in the cities of Springfield-Holyoke (#650) and Rochester (#921). "

To me this says that maybe the Alexa results were extrapolated from a small group of Alexa toolbar users, two of whom happen to live in the towns above (which one is Ken?).— Unsigned, by: 131.107.0.80 / talk / contribs

What no one there seems to realize is that the Alexa graph only looks good because they had a dip in traffic in March. The time frame had to be chosen very carefully to hid the true statistics on Conservapedia's traffic, if Karajou had gone out 6 months it would have looked very different. I wish I could point this out but all my sock puppets are kissing Schlafly's ass. Infoseek (talk) 20:16, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Conveniently, the "What do we do about the fat Christians" section is missing in the re-created page (and also wasn't archived).

You have to remember "Making Conservapedia better" means driving off everybody who's ever said something we the sysops disagree with.

True, but I think Rob knows what a silly wiki is CP. They can't sign up new contributors, and the legitimate ones they sign up quickly leave or are blocked for only what can be described as 'talking back' to sysops. I know few adults who want to be treated that way by other adults.

We all know that Ken is a sandwich (or two) short of a picnic but his constant deletions and reappearances remind me so much of a frightened bunny popping out of different rabbit holes.

Yep. I got as far as that and then stopped reading. Kowardjerk, you've had this explained to you before: socialism = economic policy, communism = type of government. Yes, communists are socialists, but socialists and not communists. Oh, and despite the name, the National Socialists weren't socialist, they were capitalist - one of the distinctions between communism and fascism - communism = authoritarian socialism, fascism = authoritarian capitalism. Fuck me, why am I wasting my time? (Maybe to find out why stupid people (on all sides of the spectrum) group everything they don't like as one and the same)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Don't forget the conservative claim that radical Islam is aligned with communism. Uuuuummm... who do you think al Qaeda's ancestors were fighting against in Afghanistan?

Really, this is one of the two central memes of the American right-wing:

  1. Anything other than American Conservatism is equivalent to any and all bad political philosophies throughout history.
    1. "American Conservatism" is defined as "what Fox News and talk radio tells us today, even if it differs from what they said yesterday".
  2. If anyone who disagrees with us does anything Hitler did, that makes them the equivalent of Nazis.
    1. If conservatives do something Hitler did, that's okay.

To be fair, liberals have a history of making Hitler comparisons to conservatives, too, many just as baseless. But at least liberals don't show blatant historical ignorance by merging wildly different political philosophies into one morass of evil. MDB (talk) 11:49, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

I think this is rooted in them not understanding or never having worked through all the other philosophies. When these people read the Comunist Manifesto they don't go there without bias, they see, hear and do everything within their ideology. It reminds me of the saying "to see everything through rose-colored glasses" only that they see everything through conservative-colored glasses. They've grown up in a society were questioning what people with more authority (pastor or whatever it's called in their churches, parents, party members, bosses) is not only disliked but sanctioned, if such a behaviour is encouraged on society wide scale it leads to people that stop thinking. In a way, that only can be said properly with leaving the political institution side out of it, is totalitarian (the ideology of Christian American conservatism), because they constantly have to justify their behaviour. In addition their authority is shifted from a dictator to the ultimate big brother: the all-knowning, all-powerfull but absolutely loving Christian God™. Going to read something without a bias is a sin, because the very moment one does that the existence of God™ is doubted, the original sin is commited - and rational thought excluded from being the highest authority. This is a deadly cycle. It leads to complete and outer delusions ranging from from the denial of evolution to the denial of the truth being seen by anybody else then people that agree with them. In it's psychological effects American Conservatism is a totalitarian ideology, and that makes it extremly dangerous. My working definition of "totalitarianism": An ideology or political system that seeks to have total influence on peoples lives, in some instances even including brainwashing and other parts of indoctrination. --ǓḤṂ³ 15:40, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

MPR, and by extension Andy, isn't talking to anyone. He knows he has no conservative readers supporting him, hence why he doesn't put his money where his mouth is and run for Congress to 'fix' the country. He couldn't get GOP support, he couldn't get Tea Party support, he couldn't get religious support and he couldn't even get WND support. The only reason that CP continues to spout such headlines is for the reason that Andy's after a job. Either at Faux News or to take over the Eagle Forum when his Skeksis mother completely decomposes. Unfortunately for Andy as soon as he does either the media might actually pay attention to him as a person, dredge up some of his many quotes from CP and end his career in short order.

It really must grate at him that even idiot wingnuts like Angle and Bachmann can get elected in a popular vote, and he couldn't even get past a primary. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 21:27, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Kenny has a girl-friend...[edit]

Oh Ken! You make me feel like a school girl again. Pull off my dicky and rub hotdog grease on my pimply skin. I lurve you...

... no one else but Denise O'Leary, who writes at Uncommon Descent (the flag-ship of intelligent design):

More from the “Does new atheism make you fat?” high level research project

An individual who shall most certainly remain nameless insists on foisting on my notice the claim that 60% of up-and-coming new atheist leaders hail from Girth Central and thus demonstrate what happens when you diss the Bread of Life and grab the bread on the side.
He offers PZ Myers as Exhibit A, courtesy Moshe Reuveni. Among atheists, I’ve seen broader beams, actually, but this will do for a start. Still, a heft more and … 911 – Jenny Craig.
Anyway, our contri-biter tells us all kinds of gossip about the new atheists that you really shouldn’t want to know, along with some really scientific theories on why they worship Fries With That! His theories that rank with the very best science evolutionary psychology can offer on what people worship, why, and what happens when they do.
Hmmm. Surveying the scene: Maybe there is something to be said for Christian, or any, weight loss ministries.

My answer to this drivel is held in moderation - as usual:

What’s next? Yo mamma so fat? Please add at least your COFFEE moniker when you are linking to Conservapedia...

Jeeves is right - it's the second time she's jumped on the fat atheist thing. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 01:04, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
(EC) O'Liery fancies herself a journalist but not only is Ken an "individual who shall most certain remain nameless" but I'll bet $20 she doesn't actually know his name and doesn't actually care since he handed her a gift wrapped turd that perfectly reinforces her bigotry. It may or may not be irresponsible for a "journalist" to base a story on what may ultimately be a long-con troll. But you'd think she'd at least want some reassurance she wasn't getting hung out to dry as a pawn in an elaborate hoax given that Ken's material is all obviously from Poeville. I don't know. But the message here is extremely inappropriate for a blog pushing ID when a central component of its public fight is distancing itself from religionists and creationists. Strictly speaking, ID is obviously anathema to Biblical literalism. Even though some "liberal" religionists and even non-religious and atheists accept it, I think it's only fair to say it's a non-religious theory to the extent creationists are succeeding in using it to erode acceptance of the ToE and spread their anti-science lies. Hence O'Leary getting her grubby mitts on the blog. But why has Dembsky abdicated so much editorial control that this dummy gets to fuck with years of issue framing on which outfits like the Discovery Institute have spent millions? It's just stupid.

Real experts on PDF’s have pronounced the Obama long form normal (Krawetz, Fox News, National Review) and I don’t need to re-plow that ground. What I’m going to do in the next section is to point out what any technically savvy person should be able to see for themselves.
I have irrefutably proven that the Certificate of Live Birth that President Obama presented to the world on April 27, 2011 is a fraudulently created document put together using the Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator programs.
That’s the first sentence from Vogt, and we have already seen that it’s wrong. The PDF was created by Mac OS X 10.6.7 PDFContext. Not an auspicious way to start. He admits that he doesn’t know which of the two programs created the document. If he can’t tell which one, how does he know it was either — and in fact it was neither. No Adobe program created the long form PDF.

May 2011[edit]

RationalWiki:Active users, Conservapedia:Active users and Active users at Citizendium are updated.

RW
CP
CZ

RW shows a steady increase, partly because of the whole rights-management-brouhaha. This is of course temporarily. Conservapedia is rising again, after being choked by TK's policy of repelling any editor in late 2010. It seems to be nearly as popular as RationalWiki. Citizendium prepares to flatline.

RW
CP
CZ

While there is not much difference between the statistics for all users and the unblocked editors at RationalWiki and Citizendium, Conservapedia's diagram shows that at least half of the increase in editors over the last months is due to contributors which aren't allowed to stay on.

How easily 'Best of the Public' falls to the wayside[edit]

'Best of the Public' can best be described 'If someone with few credentials does something we like, they are clearly "best of the public". But that's only true until someone with credentials does something they like, then it's "A scientists who received NASA funding for his geological research" declares the Genesis flood shook up all the continental plates. John Baumgardner is the 'Nasa-funded' scientist, and he is described on WP as a "geophysicist, young Earth creationist, intelligent design supporter and Christian fundamentalist." He belongs to a group called R.A.T.E., self-described as "Bible-believing Christians, committed to young-earth creation." So a guy who said, "my primary goal in my scientific career is a defense of God's Word, plain and simple," came out and said his opinion is that Magic Man caused the plates to shift, because Baumgardner has set his whole career on trying to prove that his childhood beliefs are true (without success). He may do scientific research valuable in continental drift theory, but that's distinguished from his failure to prove his Magic Sky Man did it, which he never will. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 14:14, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

To CP I say - Great! If this guy has made a genuine discover of importance, then the peer review process will validate it, our collective human knowledge will have increased. And then, once there has been enough testing, investigation, and attempts to falsify it, the Great Flood will become the accepted scientific theory. However, and excuse me for being presumptuous, but this guy's "research" will never get to the peer review stage, where it would be destroyed (see; cold fusion).

Jpatt's sad little essay[edit]

This is such a sad little essayimg for all its earnestness. It's set up in an "Atheists say... But we say..." format, and it's as persuasive as a child's Sunday school assignment. 'Atheists say science has the answers...but we say: Magic Man!'; 'Atheists say the Bible is a bunch of fairy tales...but we say: Magic Man!'. He writes about sainthood and miracles as if unaware of the pitifully low bar for what in today's Christianity constitutes "cannot be grasped, it is unexplainable as to why it occurred". I remember back when, like Jpatt, I just adopted whatever my dad believed. Life was simpler then because I didn't have to think for myself, I just had to learn what he thought. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 01:52, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps the e-mail bounce-back was the most telling of all: Jpatt, there is no heaven. We tried to e-mail heaven and apparently it's not there. Did you get the addy wrong, or your beliefs? --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 18:56, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Are we dancing on TK's grave, or making fun of the concept of heaven and Jpatt's tasteless response? I'm the latter. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 20:20, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Apparently TK is the new FBI, as that guy got a five year ban for no reason. Classy. Though I personally loved JPatt's response, it's just what's needed to be sent to the parents of Andy's students. Nothing says give Andy your money and children's time like an example of an editor that worked there for years being mocked for dying.

Help, help! We cranks are being oppressed![edit]

Good piece on global warming from Newsblusterers posted to MPR, but I'm kind of disappointed they didn't shoehorn in the usual bull about solar cycles and broken hockey sticks. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 21:22, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

You hit the nail on the head: "Give our crank ideas equal time!" Basically, Brooke Gladstone is saying that the media needs to stop engaging in the 'teach the controversy' nonsense that the rightwing demands, in hopes that their whacko fantasies become the basis for public policy. It's astounding how little evidence the right has to back up their social, economic and scientific beliefs. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 13:38, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Uh-oh, Big Boy Jammies (via MPR) reports that Mitt Romney is not a denier. Time to throw the RINO under the bus along with Chris Christie. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 22:12, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

"Counter-Example" to Atheism and Obesity[edit]

I was perusing the epic travesty known as Atheism and Obesity and saw that Ken Doll tries to hammer the point in that Chuck Norris is a fundamentalist Christian, and that this somehow confirms that being a Christian will automatically imbue you with stunning physical prowess...retarded logic and the notion that calling your opponents fat somehow constitutes an argument aside, reading this reminded me of a particularly notable (albeit more silent about the subject than most) celebrity atheist. Who's that, you ask?

Bruce fucking Lee.

For those not obsessed with kung fu movies, one of the most memorable scenes from Lee's career is the fight in Way of the Dragon in which he kicks the ever loving shit out of...wait for it...Chuck Norris. So by Ken-Logic, what we have here is a "counter-example" (Andy's version of the word, of course) of a dirty atheist displaying physical dominance (Lee was a better fighter than Norris IRL as well, having acted as his teacher at one point) over the righteous Christian , thus proving once and for all that Christianity is inferior to Atheism and all Christ-lovers are fatty fat fat fat fattersons. </Kenlogic>. I'd love to see one of the deep cover parodists bring this up at CP and see how Kenny responds to it. Just a funny thought... Saladin 01:37, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

For all your heroics, this reduces to talking about a fight in a kung fu movie. Nutty Rouxnever mind 01:55, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Duly noted Nutty but, in his defense, it was a pretty damn SWEET fight in a kung fu movie. The Foxhole Atheist (talk) 03:13, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Obviously, the only plausible explanation is that Bruce Lee was a secret Christian. Doppelheuer (talk) 05:02, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Actually the obvious response to  K e n D o l l ' s  Chuck Norris public masturbation is actual facts. Chuck Norris is an actor. He's scripted to win. Let's look at the most obvious of the early MMA fighters that were Christian, Joe Son. Famously he carried a massive great cross to the ring just to be like their personal saviour. Unfortunately for  K e n  D o l l  he was also a tubby bitch, ended up with an 0-4 record and is currently in custody for a gang rape charge committed four years before he became the banner man for Christianity with his cross carrying antics. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 06:01, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

HA! You cannot beat Ken so easily Iscariot (highly suspicious name by the way). Obviously this Joe Son fellow was no true Christian. So much is obvious from the mere fact that he was tubby. Clearly the rape charge just goes to confirm it. Face it, you will never beat Ken, foolish atheists. --Horace (talk) 06:16, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
First 30 seconds, this idiot reading his book, quoting their nailed god and carrying his carpentry to the cage. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 06:29, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

I probably should have made it clear that I was joking (though Bruce Lee seriously was a superior fighter to Chuck Norris in the real world) ...I'm aware that this doesn't actually refute anything (since there isn't actually anything of merit to refute), I just thought it was funny after reading the Fat Atheists tripe. It's always fun to see a shitty premise that doesn't even work using moronic reasoning. Saladin 06:45, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
