Andy embarrasses himself in yet another scientific field[edit]

Taking a breaking from recently showing his willful ignorance about relativity, Andy goes to show his willful ignorance about evolutionimg:

It seems implausible that the rate of extinction would vary enormously, but even if it did, it would still exceed the rate of the generation of new species.
But the eye is remarkably similar across species that have no direct evolutionary connection, such as humans and cats and eagles. The human eye and and an eagle's eye have the same weight!
Evolution does have a problem explaining why so many self-destructive people and personalities exist. A liar typically ends up hurting himself as well as others. An addict is even worse. They should not exist under evolution.

sigh... I've seen too much of Andy's anti-scientific nonsense in the last few days. Others can explain the problems with his arguments (using the word very loosely). --Night Jaguar (talk) 05:04, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure I can pick holes in those arguments - the humans eye is the same weight as an eagles! SAME WEIGHT! Tielec01 (talk) 05:13, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Regarding the last point, I suggest Andy watch Maury for a week. Liars, addicts and assholes are very good at reproducing. --Roofus (talk) 05:36, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
You didn't even hit the jackpot in there, Jags:
7.This is a valid point. Male and female versions of species must evolve separately, yet at the same time, and in a complementary manner. It's like lightening striking twice at the same place, at the same time of day, etc. Doesn't happen, and certainly not repeatedly so (for many species).

Seeing Ray Comfort make that argument on his blog is what finally convinced me that he just plain doesn't give a fuck about what he's saying. He's not asking questions about evolution, and he's not educating people about it. He's just evangelising and dressing it up as criticism. He doesn't care how valid they are, all he wants is someone to read it, take it at face value, and think "Hey, yeah...." X Stickman (talk) 07:02, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

The one about the Libyan flag was the one that set me into paroxysms of fresh incredulity. That he is about a hair's breadth away from supporting a Muslim dictator is ironic enough, but that he was bawling about the imminent demise of a flag drawing on communist and Islamist symbolism, while blasting Islamic symbolism, was extremely amusing. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 07:04, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Yep that was classic. The old flag was obviously a bastion of neutrality. I mean how can a plain green flag have any kind of Islamic symbolism?! Classic Andy ignorance... --TheEgyptiansig001.png 08:10, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Thing is, A lightning strike to the same place multiple times is a rather common occurrence, so even his analogy is bullshit. Ateafish (talk) 08:19, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Do you think we can get Ken to draw us a picture of the hypothetical sightless common ancestor of humans, cats and eagles? I mean, out here in reality, where evolution actually works and has explanatory power, the common ancestor basically looks like a big lizard thing and of course the fossils have eye sockets and so we naturally assume it already had eyes, you know, to see with. But that's because we're not smart enough to consider transitional animals like the flying kitty, obviously. (talk) 09:44, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
I wonder what other exciting homologies we can find using the innovative Schlafly classification mechanism. The human foreleg has about the same muscle mass as the Shetland pony! The human's nasal acuity is approximately identical to that of a marmoset! The long-eared jerboa is roughly the same colour as human arse hair! --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 10:16, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Speak for your own arse hair. Mine is not the same colour as a long-eared jerboa, more like pygmy shrew in fact. Oldusgitus (talk) 10:57, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Well I certainly loled at the first argument, because it is completely without merit or evidence. Andy just concludes based on nothing that a large variation in extinction rates is implausible. Although it is true extinction rates regular exceed the evolution of new species (we call those 'extinction events' Andy). There is a reason why 99% of all species that existed on the Earth are not here anymore.
I am not sure if an eagle and human eye weight about the same, assuming that they do, that fact doesn't make them similar (for one the eye mass to body ration is very different). Humans, cats, and eagles do have a direct evolution connection if you go back far enough. For humans and cats, you have to go all the way back to the the taxonomic clade Boreoeutheria and some 85-100 million years. For us and eagles, one has to travel back some 300 or so million years (we are both Amniotes) before Sauropods and Synapsids separated. However the eye evolved long before that, starting in the Cambrian (540+ million years ago), and we (cats, humans and eagles) all inherited the pinhole camera eye with retina and lens from those very ancient basal common ancestors all those years ago, hence the similarities you can still find today despite some very major differences.
Evolution doesn't have a problem explaining "self destructive personalities". There is no drive towards some ultimate goal of physical or mental perfection or conscious direction in evolution. Evolution is just species adapting to changes in a dynamic environment to better thrive in that environment for the purpose of reproduction. Really evolution is life's reaction to an ever changing environment on the Earth, and often it doesn't keep up (hence extinction events). Even in the species best suited to their environment have members who don't do as well and typically less likely to pass on their genes thanks to various "flaws". DNA copies imperfectly, so some offspring may not be as suited to survival. Lying can be a mechanism for survival and may benefit the person in particular cases (even if it hurts others).
As for the stupid notion of "Male and female versions of species must evolve separately, yet at the same time, and in a complementary manner.", I'll let PZ Myers, who is a hundred times more qualified than I, answer for me.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:45, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
I can claim stupidity, what is your excuse? Most statistics are made up -- "There is a reason why 99% of all species that existed on the Earth are not here anymore."

That is what I love about the devotees of Andyism, they cannot simply ask a question about a challenge to their lord and master's ramblings, they have to be insulting about it. To answer though, we have found roughly some 250,000 extincted species in the fossil record, but we know that this record is still incredibly incomplete. Because of this we can extrapolate the total number by using our knowledge of geology, biology, evolution, and fossilization. Here is a nice link that covers that in bit more detail. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:25, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Touche, 76. It's just that a lot of your posts seem terse and really jumbled to the point that it's difficult to discern the point. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:24, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Beer Drinking Game[edit]

Every time i read things you all point out, i think I"m playing some kind of beer drinking game. On the link first given for this discussion "Autumn Foliage". That's a shot and a chaser, that! and let's see, "The human eye and and an eagle's eye have the same weight!" he's said that one at least 10 times on his page. must be worth a chug, there. SIGHS... he is truly a one trick pony.Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 15:11, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

I enjoy how he believes just because their sizes are similar that this is somehow very relevant, especially as some sort of conundrum for evolution. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 15:30, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
I'd be interested to know what particular type of eagle has this property. There are quite a few of them. Sounds like a dimly remembered factoid he learned as a kid, and now dredges up at cocktail parties. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:02, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
"The human eye and and an eagle's eye have the same weight!" Holy shit, I thought that was a joke quote. I can't believe Andy actually used that in an argument!!! Occasionaluse (talk) 18:08, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
EC) A dimly remembered factoid that's prolly wrong: All eyes are of similar size (and hence weight?) as they all focus the same, or similar, light waves on a similar retina - it's just optics (dunno about octopus eyes though). Are a newborn kid's eyes the same size as an adults? Pippa (talk) 18:10, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
So Andy has discovered common descent? Good on him. Röstigraben (talk) 18:46, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, common design elements in the eyes of many species, it is like they had some sort of basal common ancestor, imagine that! DA MAGICKS! --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 18:56, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
But if they weigh the same, then they're made of wood, and therefore, witches! Burn them! Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 19:30, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Except, Andy, that eagle's eyes can also register ultraviolet light unlike human eyes[2]. CrundyTalk nerdy to me 08:50, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Eagle and human eyes could not be similar due to a common ancestor because they had to evolve after that ancestor. It's implausible to think otherwise. So says Andyimg, and thus so it is. Phiwum (talk) 14:53, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Like I said above, I want one of these loons to draw me a picture of what they think the common ancestor looked like. To me our ancestors in that era look like lizards, although I'm sure a lizard would care about the differences because our family tree diverges before the first actual lizard comes along. But whatever, they are saurian as all get out. And the thing about lizardy-things is that they've already got fucking eyes. I have this terrible feeling Andy doesn't even realise the common ancestor is a Tetrapod and that all these creatures have more in common with fish (who - surprise, also have familiar looking eyes) than with, say, a spider which has very different arrangements for vision. (talk) 20:48, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Creation scientists tend to win the creation vs. evolution debates[edit]

Just doing a little fact checking on this "article"Yup, and discovered that the Wall Street Journal may actually have said that Creationists win more debates than Evolutionists. One problem though: the WSJ said this in 1979, 32 years ago. Maybe Winston Smith did a minor "correction" on that article. Jimaginator (talk) 20:24, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Well, yeah. Its easy to win debates when the answer to every question is "GODDIDIT". Its like that douchebag who spams the kick button in Mortal Kombat.--Thunderstruck (talk) 21:25, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
I attended such a debate back in the early 90's. The Creationists had a polished, well-rehearsed, and nicely delivered presentation of PRATT and bullshit. The Evolutionist were a couple of stammering guys who read from note cards and prattled on about the fossil record, common descent, and DNA. The Creationists won hands down. After it was over, about 3/4 of the audience piled onto the church buses that brought them... So yeah, from what I saw, I imagine that they would "win" most debates.--Inquisitor (talk) 22:10, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Debates on issues like these only show which side has better stage presence, marketing skills, social skills, and debate skills, not which side has more scientific fact. Fortunately scientific theories are not decided by debates.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:50, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
^ exactly! Creationists also frequently abuse the format these "debates" (see Gish Gallop). --Night Jaguar (talk) 00:08, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
The biggest problem I've noticed in these debates is that the scientists/science defenders just try to go up and give a lecture that resembles an intro course in biology and they know almost nothing about the creationist talking points. So they end up sitting there going "WTF is this guy talking about?" when the creationist starts pulling "counterexamples" out of his ass in the form of bogus fossil finds from 80 years ago or some obscure quote mined research. It reminds me of Johann Hari's description of Climategate (and you can really just Mad Lib any woo into this quote): "The climate scientists have to be right 100 percent of the time, or their 0.01 percent error becomes Glaciergate, and they are frauds. By contrast, the deniers only have to be right 0.01 percent of the time for their narrative--See! The global warming story is falling apart!--to be reinforced by the media." Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 00:11, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
The question I want creationists to answer is: "Why don't you go debate another creationist?". I call that my 1 Question That No Creationist Can AnswerTM. Why don't they ever challenge each others competing creation theories? After all, wouldn't it make more sense to debate someone who at least is in the same field of study as themselves? These guys are a joke. --Inquisitor (talk) 00:29, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
It's part of crank magnetism. I have seen it happen in very rare cases, like an OEC writing a debunking of YEC. However, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 00:39, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Inquo - That's common to all debates and discussion shows involving religion. You often see religionists of various stripes 'debating' atheists, but I have never seen religionists of different creeds debating why their god is real and the other's not. "You think a man rode to heaven on a winged horse? Pfft, that's ridiculous, it's just not possible. What really happened was that this fella was born to a virgin years after a talking snake said to...". That would be great entertainment!

Coke Eyes Hurlbutt's Bloodthirst for War[edit]

A common theme of Coke Eyes' MPR items is his practically begging for a war to break out in the Middle East with Israel, which I assume fulfills some sort of end times prophecy he'd like to see come about.

  • "Could Israel actually have oil to spare for the world? If so, the Arabs might go to war to stop that."[3]
  • "Arabs wage a PR war against Israel. Israel can fight back only with the truth."[4]
  • "Israel is more likely than ever to be at war. And Barack Hussein Obama bears much of the blame."[5]
  • "Egypt recalls its ambassador to Israel. Or does it? One thing is certain: it's a war zone out there."[6]
  • "Israel comes under attack—from the Gaza-Sinai region. The Middle East just dodged the bullet of war."[7]

There's far more. While some of his views, like believing dinosaurs are flopping around in lakes in Vermont, are cute, he really is a man with vile beliefs and hopes. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 20:39, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

I sincerly hope you collected those over a few months and did not just go through his contributions that far back...
But now a bit off-topic: I never understood how you can be so hatefull to the world around you - even if they are all evil - that you wish for the world to come to an end, including your own life, just to see that you were right. How fucking pervertes is that? How fucking insecure does a person have to be to want that? --ʤɱ pervert 20:51, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Hoping for war in Israel serves a number of purposes:
  1. It makes Obama look bad to the extent he tries to function as a peacemaker.
  2. It makes Obama look weak in conflict with Iran.
  3. It makes Israel seem more like the endangered righteous victim, and the Arabic nations as greedy monsters.
  4. It helps fulfill those end-times scenarios.
So that's why we see it so often - it does a lot for him.--ADtalkModerator 21:48, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Coke Eyes is rapidly becoming the most batshit CP sysop. In a world that includes Andy, Karajou and JPatt... that's scary (I'm not including Ken - he's just ill}}. With some of the idiocy on MPR, I had sometimes assumed it was troll-bait. Looking at TH's replies to comments on his blog... he actually believes it. He's just as insane as Ken. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 21:52, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
There is a portion of fundamentalist Christianity that believe that a pre-requestite for the rapture is that Israel controls Jerusalem. This shows up as Christian Zionism. The peace process in Israel means that the Jewish people won't have complete control over Jerusalem - thus a preference for war over a peaceful division. Consider the proclamation back in '96. Resolution #1 starts out "Because of the sovereign purposes of God for the city, Jerusalem must remain undivided, under Israeli sovereignty, open to all peoples, the capital of Israel only, and all nations should so concur and place their embassies there." So yep, he's nutty and its that end-times scenario thing. If you dig through the leaks files you'll find Terry doing the tour Israel thing. --Shagie (talk) 04:08, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Every time I have commented on his blog the tone of his response is very aggressive; it's the same tone an angry father tells his ne'er-do-well son "I'm not going to tolerate any of your nonsense!

I was just about to post my own topic on this pathetic "Question Evolution" bollocks. For me it sums up the whole anti-science idiocy in one neat campaign. The obvious point is that the questions have all been answered. Several times. Not least here. Then take a look at the links from Ken's idiot posts. As far as I can see, the entire campaign is about selling T-shirts and other merchandise with a logo on it. It's yet another campaign to screw money from idiots. These drooling idiot creationist drones are just trash. Go and read a fucking book. If you had ever read any book on evolution, you'd learn that most of what you believe is gibberish. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 22:24, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Frankly, this is nothing new. It's typical creationist activity - try to cast doubt amongst the scientifically illiterate and/or gullible by proclaiming that there are unanswered questions that cast doubt on evolution, then point-blank ignore the fact you're given any answers if and when you are, which is usually about ten minutes after the first person who isn't scientifically illiterate hears them, all the while continuing to proclaim that these 'unanswered questions' are the 'final nail in the coffin of evolution', or some such nonsense. The only real difference is that this is usually done in a small-scale, ad-hoc basis by creationists acting independently, which even allows them to admit their point is wrong when schooled in the science during a talk/presentation/whatever - and then go on and use the self-same point in another talk/presentation/whatever the following week.

MatthewQ death pool[edit]

I'm guessing many of you are familiar with the current discussion on the cp:Counterexamples to Relativity talk page. The discussion has already yielded a couple of nuggets for the WIGO, mostly because Andy of course doesn't understand a single thing about relativity and he is basically being murdered in the scientific by his brother Roger and a user named MatthewQ. They do quite the nice job of showing how Andy is full of shit every step of the way. This of course leaves andy with his usual tactics of lying, misrepresentation, word games, and bullshit, which as we all know will sooner or later end with a permaban either by Andy himself or one of his lackeys. He can hardly permaban his brother, which of course leaves MatthewQ as the odd man out. So, how long do you think Matty will survive? Chaosof99 (talk) 07:01, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

The fact that Andy's unbannable brother is showing him up for being a gibbering idiot warms the cockles of my heart. ONE / TALK 07:55, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
I do like Andrew linking to a New Scientist article to prove a point. He hasn't even read the first sentence as it says "as recently as two billion years ago". Sphincter (talk) 13:03, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
More funnly, as Roger points out 2 or 3 edits later, the article is 7 years old and has been superceeded by another article published in 2007 (I thinkit was) which contradicts the original article. So essentially once again Roger is slapping his idiot brother down whilst facepalming over andys idiocy. Oldusgitus (talk) 13:20, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Ed's recently been editing gOD complex on WP. Coincidence? I think not. Pippa (talk) 13:55, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Don't be to quick to place bets on Matthew. While most of the reforms of the "Rob Spring" have been dismantled, and replaced by Karajou's recreational-banning-over-fantasies-of-sockpuppetry, one thing that hasn't (yet) come back is "90/10" and bans for "arguing". In any case, Andy seems quite content to be soundly pwned by the whole world on the relativity issue. (God complex?) He could just walk away if he chose. So he probably doesn't mind Matthew's arguments at all. SamHB (talk) 16:11, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Funny enough, Rob was banned for arguing with Andy breaking the 90/10 rule.
Matthew has two advantages going for him. One, he's doing the exact same thing as Roger and, as mentioned above, brother Schlafly surely isn't getting banned. Two, like Andy, his sysops don't know anything about relativity. Unlike Andy, they don't care. They don't really seem to be following this discussion, which isn't about conservatism v. liberalism (they're not even willing to follow the Dear Leader and believe that it is). So it seems unlikely that the Schlafly Readguard will get Matthew. --Night Jaguar (talk) 17:11, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Other editors have met their ends doing essentially the same thing. Remember KSorenson? --Opcn (talk) 17:25, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

The biannual Schlafly Brothers Relativity Wars are one of the most enjoyable features on the entertainment calendar - BOCPWIGO is full of them. One the one hand you have Roger who kinda knows what he's talking about, and on other hand, you have his man child brother basically in the realm of "Fucking magnets, how do they work?"img. Draw up a chair and await the moment when Andy gets tired of being bitchslapped and runs away with the ball. Ahhh, life feels good. DogP (talk) 18:44, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
It seems unfortunately that Andy has decided to abandon ship and ignored any inquiry about facts (such as for example him quoting an article that states that the universe is billions of years old to make a point in his favor). The only thing he has now responded is to someone referencing a Wikipedia article, and as we all know Wikipedia is a librul website and thus can not be trusted. Kinda clashes with his earlier statement accusing Matty boy of playing politics with the speed of light (yeah, it makes even less sense in context). Chaosof99 (talk) 06:44, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

Depoliticising science[edit]

Quote from TH's blog: "That will happen only when science breaks away from politics completely. That means no government laboratories, no government schools, and no government research grants." Fafuxake! Leave it all to private enterprise? And to the devil with the hindmost! Pippa (talk) 18:01, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Dr. Hurlbut has been revealing himself more and more for an Objectivist rather than a conservative.

"Randian Man, like Marxian Man, is made the center of a godless world." — Whittaker Chambers.
Rand was educated by the Reds and took away a good deal of Marxist philosophy from the experience, even as she rejected Marxism in its full form.

Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 21:33, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
I agree that there are clear parallels of that Bolshevist "us-versus-them" mindset in Objectivism, and much of Rand is (basically) Soviet-PTSD, but all extreme philosophies, especially economic ones, start sounding the same if you take away the particulars. --YossarianSpeak, Memory 04:15, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Not exactly; there are often two extremes. This is true in economics with laissez-faire capitalism and a command economy. In the more abstract sense, you have the Apollonian and Dionysian types of extremism, the one with a heavy emphasis on order and control, the other furious and cheering on death and destruction. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 04:29, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
(EC)There are undeniable parallels in both sides' humanist conceptions. Both Rand and Soviet propaganda embraced the "heroic vision of man", but held that in order to achieve its full potential, humanity had to be freed from its shackles. Rand identified these shackles as the yoke of collectivism, whereas orthodox Marxism saw them as the capitalist mode of production.

Dawkins fail, part 2.946.147[edit]

Apparantly, "Richard Dawkins hates the American people"img + argumentum ad populum does the trick for Jpatt these days. C'mon can't we get some bizarre conspiracy stuff?

But, the link he provides fails even harder:

Dawkins’s whole post is an attack on conservative Republicans. He writes:

“In today’s Republican party . . . Ignorance and lack of education are positive qualifications, bordering on obligatory. Intellect, knowledge and linguistic mastery are mistrusted by Republican voters, who, when choosing a president, would apparently prefer someone like themselves over someone qualified for the job.”

That short diatribe by an elitist Brit underscores the importance of America’s victory in the Revolutionary War. Although Dawkins despises 76 percent of Americans because they are Christians, he shares King George III’s disdain for the ordinary citizen, and declares that, “there is surely something wrong with a system of choosing a leader when,” the “uneducated fools” choose an “uneducated ignoramus” as their Commander in Chief.

Apparantly what is OCD-ing for drug abusers could be QED-ing for cranks: Proving the other side right within two sentences. Seems to be happening a lot these days... --ʤɱ anti-communist 20:10, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Nice! Andy now trims the talk page, because Jpatt made a fool out of himself:

I like news that gets your attention. He loathes believers everywhere but has a clear biased against Republicans for their beliefs. Does Richard hate ignorance? Yes. Does he view the American people as ignorant? Yes. Dawkins hates 92% of Americans. If I put Dawkins "disagrees" or "dislikes" the vast majority of Americans- that doesn't make for a good headline. He clearly is a hater.--Jpatt 16:02, 26 August 2011 (EDT)

I've had a discussion recently with a 'jesus lover' who insists that 2 kings 2 23:25 says the bears ate Elisha because he cursed the children and not the young ones themselves, and with an apparently straight face they are simply willing to blatantly lie. And they think their god will then forgive them because they pray later.

Global warming Andy's Head[edit]

I found this little gem in the Independent this morning - - a group of mad fellow Brits rowed successfully to the magnetic North Pole. What do you think Andy's reaction to it will be? Darkmind1970 (talk) 09:47, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

"Darkmind" (what a ludicrous name), your argument lacks logic because they had to drag the rowing boat for several hours to complete the last stretch of the journey. No sign of global warming there. Note also the uneconomical "rowing boat" instead of the much more patriotic and American "rowboat". Open your mind and realize that ice only appears to have disappeared because it is hiding from liberal atheists trying to push their agenda. With the inevitable rise of Conservatism, the ice will emerge from hiding once more. ASchlafly.

The sad bit is that if you were to raise the issue with Andy, he'd probably say something like "It's summer - ice is supposed to melt in summer."

Andy's relativity double fail[edit]

As the WIGO says, Andy invokes string theory to discredit relativity, only to be informed that string theory actually uses relativity.

He was also asked by a user to explain syncrotron radiationimg. Andy then produces a paperimg and says relativity isn't needed. However, as MatthewQ points outimg, the abstract of his paper says that quantum electrodynamics (a relativistic theory) accurately predicts the phenomenon and that the paper uses relativity in its calculations. Hell, the Lorentz factor even appears in the abstract!

I hope people who aren't big physics nerds are also enjoying this. --Night Jaguar (talk) 21:57, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

The man is beyond any hope or reason. He rejects science based on emotion and dogma. Just a matter of time until he burns all the evidence and/or bans MatthewQ for talking back at him and showing what a fool he is.
What I find particularly interesting about him and other people like him (though it only tangentially relates to the relativity discussion per se) is that he clings so much to a book that was written by humans, altered and modified by his own admission, and interpreted to everybody's preconceived notions until the cows came home. He takes what he thinks the book says the world and the universe is supposed to be over what science can demonstrably show them to be. The universe he believes his god created and which nature should be self-evident from studying it directly, not a book about it. In my opinion that is very much a form of idolatry. And I thought this was forbidden in his preferred variation of christianity.

No, mostly they're just angry but I get a sense of Brian just festering in front of the TV recently with a six-pack and getting increasingly aggravated by the world. I even think he's getting his ideas from TV shows and shopping channels. The day he uploaded his tricycle toon there was a story on ABC about a couple of grandparents who upgraded a kiddy's trike for their granddaughter with cerebral palsy and are now churning them out by the dozen.

Yeah, Kara's issues and the lack of accountability date back all the way to even before RW 2.0 - I still got this old page from RW1 (from the era before CaptureBot, so expect tons of broken links). Yes, it once hailed permabans over "la" vs. "ta" in an article. And Karajou has been keeping it up all these years - he just occasionally ran out of targets. --Sid (talk) 18:59, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Good God, I finally looked at some of the diffs. A user signs up and his first edit is this,img followed by edits such as thisimg and this,img and his block is going to expire in a few minutes because he was only edit-warring in Jpatt's eyes. To be fair, I can sort of see why he will be allowed back - he has just the right tone to become a good Conservapedia sysop, he just needs to start picking on people below him, not above. --Sid (talk) 19:18, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Here's some more CP Kremlinology: Karajou actually apologizes here for a mistaken block on a parodist; as my former fellow sysops see more and more of this out of character behavior, it becomes undeniable his sadistic behavior not only shapes CP rules, but who interprets CP rules. Each needs to decide for themself if a 5 year block on a senior sysop for advocacy of the rule of law is justifiable versus someone motivated by vengeance for a personal insult which jeopardizes the integrity of the project. RobSmithI am a victim of anonymous CP trolls 19:48, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Actually, On CP, blocking a user who wanted what you want is perfectly fine and legal Rob. Why? Because they were a threat to everybody, even andy. You were never wronged because the rule of law never EXISTED in the first place. Now, go take a break and come back when you can stop saying "CP used to be a good place, CP is being ruined by Ken and Kara, andy isn't a bad guy he just doesn't know what to do atm"--Mikalos209 (talk) 19:54, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Karajou's block of JimJast was actually a little more entertaining than that. At least to a geek who has been following the "science" debates closely. First, JimJast isn't a CP parodist. He is an absolute crackpot who has found a place that rejects his crackpottery a little less strongly than the (infinite) rejection it gets elsewhere.
Just about everyone at CP (even me) have been coming down extremely hard on JJ, and actually persuaded him to move his drivel into the essay space. Not being a sysop, he actually consented, rather than blustering and blocking the way sysops would have responded to this. He asked someone how to make essay pages, then did so, and copied his drivel over there. Then he needed sysop powers to delete the original pages. He was told to ask Andy, which he did. Andy, quite reasonably, (oxymoron alert) wanted to be sure he deleted the right pages, so he instructed JJ to empty the contents of the pages to be deleted. JJ did so. That's when anger bear awoke from his slumber, saw someone emptying pages, and sprang into action. SamHB (talk) 20:26, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Dude, JimJast isn't a parodist, he's a crank just like the other cranks CP has embraced. That KAL007 nutter for one. You really need to get over this already. You knew you were going to get banned if you proceeded, and if you were somehow so stupid as not to know then we told you so. You took your choice, and now you've got to live with it. You're not getting back on CP. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:29, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

In which Robert hijacks yet another thread to go ME!! ME!!! LOOK AT MEEEEEE AND HOW BADLY I WAS BITTEN BY THE BEAST I HELPED CREATE!!!![edit]

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Milktost, you still miss the point. CP sysops know there are serious problems, save Andy. But even Andy agreed to (1) undo range blocks; (2) undo some 403s; (3) eliminate sysops are God clause. Ken agreed (1) the wiki should be more open; (2) blocking needs reform. Karajou gives lip service to some reforms but can't overcome personal grudges. Most other CP sysops agree with me on need for reform. Ken recently proposed making it "legal" to criticize other sysops actions. Even Rationalwiki had no dispute moderation policies in place till very recently, and that came at a cost. But as long as Andy remains reticent on everything, no enforcement mechanism can be put in place to untangle the contradictory dictums that CP sysops still think is their charge to make sense of.

Conservapedia is lawless. Rationalwiki was founded as a mobocracy to counter the claim that Conservapedia was authoritarian, but the reality is CP has always been lawless and is little more than the domain of a few wikipedia outcasts to vent their personal animosities about everything and anybody. It's growth was stunted when it embarked on this course after the Conservapedia:Great Purge, but it's increasingly harder for Andy, Ken, Karajou, TerryH and the others to deny what I'm saying. The mistake now is taking valid criticism -- such as I've expressed -- and turning it into personal disputes. But as has been pointed out, both WP & RW took at least 4 years to distinguish between problem users and those who had the interests of the site at heart. CP's 90/10 doesn't help any of this.

But it's good to see a few RW editors live up to the negative stereotypes Karajou has of all RW editors. By contrast, and despite our ideological differences, somebody like Sid, who I've known for more than four years now, I have learned much from and always found his criticism helpful. See, Rationalwiki, like Conservapedia, is not an ideological monolith either. There really are people on both sites who's ideological outlook is not to obliterate dissent.

Yah, yah, what Sid said (and a few others). Message to User:Conservative/FYI: All your extra efforts are for naught. This is how it works, at Recent changes, an experienced editor sees all the red links you create on pages that normally should not be deleted, like talk pages or Archives. So after you've spent hours and hours doctoring those pages to get them where you like them, nobody reads it cause they know it's been doctored to suit your tastes. I have never, ever, read any of your crap just for this reason. I see the red links in the deletion log, avoid any of those pages, and pity the users you've abused trying to cover your tracks. You're not fooling anyone, only yourself. These editors here know you and your work so well, I'd never have had the patience to put more than 5 minutes into investigating these naked abuses they've documented over years.

This infantile namecalling is part of the reason I hardly ever contribute here anymore. DamoHi 23:50, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Thats the problem though. He HELPED MAKE conservapedia what it is today and was perfectly fine to let things keep going, then decided "reform time!", predictably lost, and now keeps telling us how the site is doomed or that somehow in the end what he wanted to happen is going to happen, that X has B problem, ect ect. If he would shut up about CP, come back when he won't tell us what we've known since day one and not act all wronged (he wasn't) we can all be "friends".--Mikalos209 (talk) 23:55, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
I understand what you are saying. I just don't think we should be giving him a hard time about it. Have you never believed in a cause, only to find out that it was shit? Whether or not he helped make some of the more unsavoury aspects of CP is debatable, perhaps he simply applied wilful blindness to the excesses - hardly the same thing.

(EC) Rob's history is not in the same league as Mr. Schlafly's or Karajou's or Ken's. The chief complaint against him seems to be his subscription to certain anti-communist conspiracy theories. And regardless of what certain fanatics say, failing to oppose a certain practice in a loud and blatant manner is not the same as supporting it. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 00:03, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
(EC)@Mikalos. I'm not so sure about that. For virtually all of his time at CP he wrote articles and news stories, he didn't really get involved to any great deal in the mass blocking, the 403'ing, the hiding of revisions etc etc. He more or less did his own thing which is, if not entirely noble, not the same as participating in the madness.

I thought we didn't post parody up here because -while it can be funny- it mostly doesn't illustrate the stupidity of conservapedia. They can't be responsible for what parodists write. Otherwise RWikians could simply insert parody and then post it up here as an example of CP stupidity. The other reason is because CP editors read what is written here and are likely to go fix any identified parody; I don't think this is major issue, the site is RIDDLED with misinformation, fixing it would be a monumental task especially when sysops are contributing to the problem. Regarding Rob - I've only been here a month or two (long enough to follow his crash and burn) and I thought he seemed like a strange guy but with a fairly decent moral compass. Guess I was wrong.

If there are more people in an area when a natural disaster hits, there are going to be more deaths - just by the simplest logic of probability that's a no-brainer.
And then he goes about to pick one guy out of the casualties list and make all of them look like idiots that wouldn't have died if they had thought about things more (to be honest, windsurfing when a hurricane is approaching is not the brightest idea).

I think I've said this before, but parodosts just arn't funny. The shit they come out without over there is only funny if they genuinely believe it, and I'd rather damn them for their own words rather than some dick poking them with a stick. If you sincerely want to to destroy CP, then all socks and parodists should leave en masse. CP would be a ghost town. Even Andy would be absent. AMassiveGay (talk) 21:28, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
I generally agree that parodists aren't as funny as the genuine article, but it is sometimes funny to see just how much obvious parody that they embrace whole heartedly. Sure it's funnier when it comes directly from Andy's mouth, but when Lieberal O'ParodistSock suggests something patently ridiculous and Andy jumps on it as some kind of amazing point, that's pretty amusing too. X Stickman (talk) 21:32, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Agreed, but sometimes poking them a bit gets them going and then we can see how low they'll sink. Look at all the talk about the Hurricane Irene.--MikeO (talk) 22:03, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Don't worry, you did a great job. They took the bait, and since they can't actually know what password any given account has you have essentially shitlisted the letter P. Well done, good sir.

Finally, the answer![edit]

The answer to the question "Why did Andy's campaign a few years back fail as hard as it did?"img --ʤɱ structuralist 21:10, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Andy's campaign failed because Andy's a crackpot, not because of a lack of advertising. In fact, the lack of advertising probably helped him; would you vote for a guy who thinks relativity is a liberal plot to stop people reading the Bible? EddyP Great King! Disaster! 21:19, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

If I were rich, I'd personally finance Andy in a bid for president as an independent on the condition that he himself handle all of his own marketing and advertising, because that would be absolutely amazing and hilarious to see. However, this attitude of throwing money at pointless projects is probably why I am not rich. X Stickman (talk) 21:29, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Hell, if the Republican nominees have to be a joke then why not make Andy that joke? He'd be even more entertaining than Bachmann or Perry. Considering the batshit spiral they've been going down in recent years they might actually be ready for Andy in 2016. Parodists convinced Andy to rewrite the Bible, can they get on getting him to run for President? --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:01, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Considering some of the stuff Perry is coming out with as his proposed policy, Andy might even be saner than him. Sure, he'd try to destroy the department of education, but he'd probably be OK with the federal government actually receiving tax revenue. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:33, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Perry has the ability to apear to be listening to ideas, Andy lacks that ability. --Opcn (talk) 22:47, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Can Conservapedia turn my internet off?[edit]

Hello all,

I have been vandalizing Conservapedia for quite some time, but was surprised when my ISP shut off my internet after receiving a complaint from what I am sure is someone at Conservapedia.

My question for you is whether this is legal, it's cleared up now, so I'm not worried, but I would like to know if I should limit my vandalism to public hot spots, or if I can call my ISP and tell them the true story and maybe send my ISP after Andy for wasting their time and resources.--MikeO (talk) 19:41, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Stop whining. You vandalised a legal website and you may have got hassled for it. Tough shit. Either don't 'vandalise' or don't whine imo. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:44, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
We don't condone vandalism; obvious troll is obvious. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:46, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
Not whining about it, if they got me, they got me. I'm just wondering if this is actually a valid tactic, or if someone over there is overstepping. Figured that people here might me more familiar with mediawiki protocol than I am. Until I hear otherwise, my vandalism will only take place at public hot spots, which still gives me plenty of options.
An additional bit of detail I wanted to disclose is that none of my post's have been threatening, mostly I just blank pages and replace the text with a request for Andy to tell us about his gay brother, or insinuations about the rogue editors working over there. I think I might have called the car guy a retard once or twice too, but again, nothing that would be considered illegal as far as I know.--MikeO (talk) 20:17, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

What is the point in vandalising Conservapedia? If you disagree with them, there are far more constructive ways of expressing that disagreement than vandalism. The only reason I can see, is the juvenile fun in destructiveness, if your disagreement with them makes you feel like they are an acceptable target for that. That is a dehumanising attitude, treating them as things rather than people. We should always treat people as people, even people whom we have deep disagreements with. (((Zack Martin))) 10:26, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
I will admit that it has turned into juvenile fun through destruction, but I also hope that perhaps someone might see something and start questioning what's going on at the site, and maybe start to think for themselves a little bit. The one and only advantage in straight up vandalism is that it distracts them to an extent from making up more lies to pass of as truth.
My big issue with the site is that it attempts to pass of fiction as fact, and gives people way to gather support for their crackpot ideas. My original intent was to try to slowly insert facts into the site, of course it was quickly reverted and I was usually banned for promoting "non-conservative" ideas and not given any kind of recourse. So I took the easy route, which involved vandalism on as large a scale as I could muster, along with a little bit of "monstering" (a term first used by the character Spider Jerusalem in the comic series Transmetropolitan, which he described as: "The art of abusing people. Of ambushing them with questions, following them with questions, hounding them with questions, driving them to their fucking graves with questions. It’s sort of being like a photographer, except no ones' killed any royalty doing it…yet.")directed at Andy in an attempt to get him to comment on his gay brother.
2207 called. It wants the original Rationalwiki back. You're a little behind the learning curve here, son. B♭maj7 So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. 14:23, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
The only thing your vandalism will serve to do (provided you are not A CP troll), is to cause them to circle the wagons even more and reinforce the notion that their ridiculous conclusions are sacred and true; for in their minds why would people vandalize unless they cannot debate what CP claims are the facts. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:22, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Kind of funny that I get blocked now as soon as I open an account, from one of the IP addresses I most use. Of course, I do live in NYC and open wi-fi networks are a dime a dozen here, so the only way to stop me is to block every IP address in NYC. Anyways, I'm now moving away from the simple vandalism I've most recently been engaging in, and returning to my original plan of inserting cold hard facts into your articles, and slowly making the site more "liberal".
Also, could you please tell Karajou that my edit for The Dark Knight was simply fixing a broken link, and that reverting it without actually looking at what I did, only proves that sloppy writing is endorsed by your site.
Dark Night is not necessarily important to the site. As far as open wi-fi, I'll block every user coming from Blimpie Subs. "slowly making the site more liberal" whatever you say -- reality has a known liberal bias I guess. LOL olddusgitus. -- (talk) 18:24, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

In which Rob takes another thread and makes it all about him, again. 'Cause all that really matters is how badly he got bullied by a website he helped turn into a giant bully.[edit]

CP blocking policy no longer has anything to do with ideological conflict, nor defending Conservapedia. It is solely about the personal, sadistic hatred of a few sysops toward a handful of people. Anything which obstructs the expression of that hatred likewise becomes the object of that hatred. And this problem goes right to the top: Andrew Schlafly has allowed personal animosities and hatred to dictate Conservapedia's terms of service.

Well y'all should be happy for CP's demise then because future growth is directly tide to heavy-handed policy of haters.

User:, Have you read cp:Debate:What exactly is Conservapedia? It's worth reviewing. Whatever you mean by "getting my way", I can assure "my way" has never been anything more than what Aschlafly laid out on that page. He said,
  • A wiki need not be a direct democracy, just as most countries are not. It is essential to avoid mob rule. Wikipedia fails in this essential regard. Consevapedia, in contrast, is based on rules, just as the United States is. The democratic forces are properly restrained by the good rules. Likewise here....--Aschlafly 11:27, 19 March 2007 (EDT)
And that debate is significant for who Aschlalfy was speaking with. Here's a rule formulated by Aschlalfy,
Now, show me where I violated any Conservapedia rules that warranted a 30 day block issued by Aschlalfy to be extended to 5 years by a rogue admin, or what the founder of the site is doing now to mitigate a gross violation of site rules? RobSmithI am a victim of anonymous CP trolls 17:37, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Rob, when you get back from fantasy land, let me explain how that rule was never followed. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:39, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Rob, rational discourse (as you well know) was never part of the plan at CP. Sysops (like you) simply made up rules (and broke them) as they went along. Now take your nose out of our collective asses here at RW and go away. You were one of the turds that made CP into what it is today.
