Twice in one day from Hurlbut[edit]

Not only is he linkwhoring twice in a day to profit from a tragedy,img his 'analysis'img is hysterically funny. Not only is the whole 'debunking' woefully poor, it's his usual hate-filled screed type of article with massive generalisations, all Arabs aren't Muslims, and painfully erroneous in basic research, Sam Worthington never travelled through time. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 15:29, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

I especially like his comment near the end: "One can ask why the government has neglected the most basic element of homeland defense: an armed citizenry." Besides that, in his response to "why didn't GWB deport all the Muslims" he fails to mention anything about why deporting an entire, diverse religious group would be wrong on logical and/or humanitarian grounds, and ind just says that GWB had a blind spot and didn't seem to understand that all Muslims were behind this. άλφαΤαλκ 16:08, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Terry is right, conspiracy theories are really harmfull. Right, Terry? So fuck these Arabs, they are all bad!!! And the US has never ever done anything wrong to Muslims Arabs Muslims!!1!! fucking synonyms! --ʤɱ sinner 16:19, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Terry has it right, If you see something, keep your trap shut, because it’s none of your business! That's how to survive on CP. nobsI am a fugitive from an ideological fever swamp 17:25, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
I know bitching randomly about CP is cathartic - just think how much faster the healing process will be if you leak the soopah seekrit chats! --PsyGremlinSprich! 19:58, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

This stuff is more about Rob than it is about Terry[edit]

Was Rob ever invited into the secret sysop groups? I thought him and Ken were in the outer party and not permitted to the inner party. - π Moderator 01:33, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Psy, as pointed out here, the SDG group was not the first discussion group. Neither TK nor Conservative were members of that group. (ConservAdmins is referenced in Conservaleaks here). On the 14th of this month I intend to contact Andy Schlafly to see if he is going to allow User:Karajou gross violation of the Conservapedia Commandments to stand, hence ratifying for all to see that pretty grudges and vindictiveness now take precedence over Conservapedia stated policies. I'm going to force his hand, either he embraces accountability or he allows on his webserver anonymous editors to slander, by real life identity, a good faith user and the fourth all time contributor as having committed potential criminal misconduct (harassment). This should be a wake-up call to all active users and sysops, as well as future users and sysops. Their involvement in Conservapedia may end with the same slanderous accusations. nobsI am a fugitive from an ideological fever swamp 17:02, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
That's it! You can lead the revolution from exile! Threaten criminal charges! It's bound to work. Just wait until Sept. 14 and we will watch Andy see the light, throw out the various ne'er-do-wells who have snuck into his benevolent administration and return Rob Smith to his right hand.
That, or he'll ignore you again. Could go either way, I guess.
No matter. I'd do it. Your attempt won't look pathetic at all. Phiwum (talk) 17:19, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
(EC you bastard, you said what I was going to say) Yeah, you can't force Andy when he ignored the shit out of the whole situation to begin with, unless the harassment bit is more of a "I shall take legal action against thee" type of thing. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 17:24, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
And when Andy rejects you, Rob, will you leak the chats then? --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 17:48, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Hurlbutt's got a gripe, too. He's upset (and rightly so) about some material that appeared on the now defunct Encyclopedia Dramatica. His prime suspects are "the entire user base" of Rationalwiki. These guys threaten civil & criminal damages all the time, but nothing comes of it. Andy, a lawyer, doesn't bother explaining the facts to them but allows them to continue making fools of themselves. Guilt by association was always an illegal block under CP's rules as exercised by TK, but now is elevated to official policy with my de-sysoping and blocking. Why isn't this policy exercised against Wikipedia users? Wikipedia has done far more damage to Andy Schlafly, Phyllis Schlafly, and Conservapedia's reputation than Rationalwiki editors, (many of whom are also Wikipedia users) ever dreamed of. But I not only get de-sysoped and blocked, but slandered as well, for trying to do things to repair the damage Encyclopdia Dramatica, Rationalwiki, and Wikipedia have done to Andy Schlalfy and Conservapedia's (and Conservapeida editors) reputation. It's a moment of truth for them. nobsI am a fugitive from an ideological fever swamp 19:09, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Rob, Rob, when will you learn? Between Lenski, the non-dancing Muslim Obama, the Schlafly Bible, liberal relativity, fat atheists, flying kitties and any number of other examples, the people who have done the most damage to Conservapedia's reputation are the ones supposedly running the place. Just because we (and others) highlight their insanity, doesn't make us the bad people. Except for in the minds of Schlafly, Wobblebottom and Popeye, of course. And Phy's reputation went down the drain the moment she said it was ok for a husband to rape his wife. It's not like we make this shit up. --PsyGremlinSnakk! 19:24, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
wp:Phyliss Schlalfy begins with citation from Mr. cp:Chip Berlet's polemic, Right–Wing Populism in America: Too Close for Comfort. (Look at the slanders he's got on his website about her, Theocracy and White Supremacy, for example). I waited four years for Berlet to respond, and Karajou did exactly what Conservapedia (a) was founded not to do, and (b) as expressly stated in How Conservapedia differs from Wikipedia, blocked Chip Berlet on ideology (the discussion of Karajou's intent to violate CP policy and block for ideology his available on the private mailing list) and stated as much in his reasons for blocking. We had the real opportunity to do something about Wikipedia's bias against the Schlafly's and Conservapedia here, but Karajou blew it. Berlet never bothered to respond after he saw how arbitrary and unfair CP is to its users. TK would have waited and contacted me, but as can be seen from the discussion page there, Karajou and Conservative have no regard whatsoever for the work of another sysop over several years, on behalf of the project and the founders family. nobsI am a fugitive from an ideological fever swamp 20:03, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Hi, Rob and welcome to RationalWiki. Let me explain something to you about leaving Conservapedia: you are now nothing to them, and for all intents and purposes, you never were anything. Best of luck in contacting Andy. Don't hold your breath waiting to hear back. Occasionaluse (talk) 20:20, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
It's simple. I email the discussion list (I'm still in contact), lay out the particulars, close with a "failure to hear a response in 48 hrs means you uphold Karajou's actions." If the answer is yes, everything's fine. If the answer is no, I become one of Conservapedia's chief critics. And remember the job I did on that sonofabitch Obama. Harvard elitist scum. nobsI am a fugitive from an ideological fever swamp 20:57, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Wait, wasn't Andy at Harvard as well. Or don't whities count as elitist scum? No, I forgot, Obama's just an uppity half-caste who doesn't know his place although he has pretty much fulfilled the American myth that anyone could get to be President if they work hard enough.

Will you continue to be as actively anti-cp-members here if Andy lets you back into CP to write MPR headlines? X Stickman (talk) 21:21, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Oooh! One of CP's chief critics! My, what a threat that is. Yes, after all the damage you dealt Obama (who is still licking his wounds after the beating you gave him), it's obvious that CP doesn't want to tangle with you. Honestly, Rob, are you just funning us? Any self-respecting man would realize that he's been told to fuck off from CP and who the hell cares? That sort of treatment should bother you about as much as getting kicked from your favorite online game server. Eh, guess they don't like me. Perhaps I'll go elsewhere. Yeah, maybe they were somehow unfair in their treatment, but honestly, do you want to alternately grovel and impotently threaten for weeks on end? Phiwum (talk) 21:27, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm committed to the spirit of the wiki, free speech, the rule of law, and fairness. If this means CP reform, so be it. Even User:Conservative agrees with me, there should be a way for one sysop to criticize another, the only difference is, I didn't know there was a rule against it. And User:Conservative's assertion that there is such an unwritten rule only adds to Rationalwiki's claim CP is brainless and authoritarian. My commitments are to ideals, such as conservatism, and not to imperfect men, such as User:Conservative, Karajou, or Andy Schlafly. What they did to me violates all the fundamental precepts of conservatism the purport to represent. But only Karajou, in my estimation, owes myself and the Conservapeida project an apology for his arrogant and reckless conduct. nobsI am a fugitive from an ideological fever swamp 21:39, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Guise, really, already with the "give it up Rob!" rhetoric? Remember how much lulz we got from the rumble before he was booted from CP. I can understand his mode of thinking: he's dedicated to Conservapedia, not the individuals who run it to the ground. However, I think his efforts won't bear any fruit, but who knows?

Of course *I* know that Conservapedia (well, he said "conserativism", close enough?) IS the individuals (Andy, etc.), I was speaking on behalf of Rob's understanding. Why he hasn't given up and sticks with Ameriwiki is beyond me, but I would just enjoy watching Koward go ballistic if Andy listens to Rob's email. Also, Rob, you might want to tell Andy that Ken's idea of blocking reform has stalled into nothing, as it was just a show to give the idea that sysops were actually trying to improve something.

Jesus Christ. I'm sending a message to CP sysops (whom I know intimately) asking them why are they selective in reverting, deleting, and blocking link spammers and self promotion. Not stop hounding me, please. nobsI am a fugitive from an ideological fever swamp 21:55, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Do you think they care about what you want to say to them? --Mikalos209 (talk) 21:57, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
They read this. We have a tacit understanding. I am still in communication with all them privately. I have an ethical concern about leaking private materials, which I am asked repeatedly here to do. In the absence of betraying trust and confidence, I prefer to communicate openly with them here. That's why I came here. CP sysops do not use their private discussion lists for anything other than vandal patrol, and policy reform or proposals on the open wiki will get you a 30 day 90/10 block. So this is the only forum CP sysops pay attention to. I know this as as fact. I'm surprised you do not know that, cause your only postings seem to be, "we already know that."
Now, If you are serious about Rationalwiki's mission statement, and affecting change at CP, please stop hounding me. nobsI am a fugitive from an ideological fever swamp 22:14, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Yes, they do read this. Yes im committed, vaguely, to the goal of rationalwiki (As much as somebody who is a biblical literalist can be anyways). However, no rob, they are not interested in reform, and they are not really interested in you anymore. Your not getting back in and the De facto law of the land will be "whatever X sysop wants it to be" until andy steps in and then it's "Whatever andy decides it will be". De jure law is long dead. --Mikalos209 (talk) 22:19, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
We already know that. We already discussed this. I already told you my goal in life was not to become active again in CP. Please, just stop hounding me and wasting my time, and stop interfering with my communications between old time CP sysops, and the old time RW cabal who may have a bit better understanding of the issues involved than you yourself have displayed. nobsI am a fugitive from an ideological fever swamp 22:23, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

War! is coming[edit]

Terry: The middle east continues to edge into a new war!img , with the arabs having such WILD dreams as.l.. im not to sure. I couldn't make it through the article he posted.--Mikalos209 (talk) 00:36, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

In fairness, there is going to be war. It's just going to be in Israel, and it'll be at least partially the fault of conservative ideologues like at Conservapedia.--ADtalkModerator 00:42, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
Another one? Wtf? Senator Harrison (talk) 00:54, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
It's a demographic war borne out of thoughtless and shortsighted support of Israel's most reckless policies, and it's coming. Arabs outnumber Israelis in many occupied areas, and the disparity is just going to continue to grow. And because Israel has been propped up by American conservatives to a point where it cannot step down from a special status as a religious state, it can't give the natives the vote. Which means either Israel is going to have to start killing them and moving them to reservations or else they're going to become a modern apartheid state - both choices lead, of course, to war.--ADtalkModerator 00:56, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
It is great that the worlds jewish state is going to be a minority jew nation.

it's also going to have a large section of the planets Jewish population and a god awful amount of ability to fight back though/. There IS a reason Israel hasn't lost it's wars--Mikalos209 (talk) 00:58, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

That reason is of course US support. It's easy to strike really hard when you've got someone much much bigger than you to lift your hammer up for you. --Opcn (talk) 01:57, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
It always seemed simple enough to me: either Israel treats the palestinians as citizens or gives them their own country. But I guess as someone once said, "The important things are always simple, the simple things are usually impossible." ...or something like that --DurbinatorDurbinating 02:38, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
More the simple easy solutions to 3/4 of the worlds problems simply won't be considered. --Mikalos209 (talk) 02:39, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
When I was 16 or 17 I had quite a simple idea for all this mess. Just let the Arabs have a single state of which Isreal is an autonomous region. Today I think they should just make a single state called "Israel & Palestine" and give both religions equal represantation and rights within the whole system. But then again, I'm - if I want to or not - German, so when I say Israel is doing something wrong I immediatly get "Nazi!" or "Anti-Semite!" thrown in my face… --ʤɱ secularist 11:33, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
Not to side with bigots, but that's not a very good plan (sorry). You'd be asking both states to give up independent sovereignty, trying to join together two groups that have violently opposing interests and long-standing differences, and you'd be asking each group to accept the partial legitimacy of an ideology that they consider not just wrong-headed, but actually evil. Not to mention that Israel's status as a minority would put them in really obvious and real jeopardy in this situation.--ADtalkModerator 11:50, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
I know it's unlikely. Of course the first step should be to make them stop killing and hating each other, which might be possible through showing them how much they actually have in common. Maybe a first (or zero-ish?) step would be to give the Palestinians enough economical ground that they are able to have a good education, more often than not a well educated people become more tolerant than they were before. I have always failed to see how having a Jew or Muslim as a neighbour is sooo bad that you need to get rid of him. I actually had muslim neighbour once, it was actually quite practical - when he prayed I always knew what time it was... --ʤɱ constructivist 12:27, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
Long and boring comment:
After over half a century of bloody conflict and teaching hatred, coexistence in a single state is only a dream.
Although Israelis have more than their fair share of extremists and fundamentalists, and specific violent episodes tend to temporarily harden the stances of many moderates, by the late 1990s a significant portion of Israel's population (perhaps the majority) had come to understand the demographic time-bomb that would result from maintaining hold of the West Bank. Simply annexing "Judea and Samaria" to Israel would ensure a future in which Palestinian Arabs would constitute the country's majority, leading to only two possible outcomes:
  • The end of the Jewish State: Jews becoming a hated minority in an Arab state.
  • The end of democracy: Israeli Jews being forced to strip Palestinian Arabs of their citizenship rights in order to maintain the Jewish nature of the state, relegating the majority of the country's population to an underclass without proportional political representation (and thus aching for a violent revolution). How many Jewish parents would want their children to abandon democracy and become enforcers of a real (not merely retorical) apartheid?
(These are, of course, the very same reasons why the so-called "right of return for the refugees" can't be accepted by Israel. It would be suicidal.)
Even many so-called "hawks" eventually came around to understand this situation: that's the story behind Ariel Sharon and his followers leaving the Likud Party and forming the Kadima Party (toghether with formerly Labour politicians like Shimon Peres himself). Many Palestinian Arabs also did the math, and in the late 1990s a small group highlighted the situation by openly proposing that the West Bank be formally annexed into Israel and its inhabitants given Israeli citizenship.
Of course, there are Israeli extremists that would solve the situation by either installing some sort of Theocratic dictatorship or by tried-and-tested ethnic cleansing. But even the moderately reasonable Israelis know that separation from the Palestinian Arabs is the only real alternative. The only question that remains is the manner in which that separation would take place:
  • The peaceful creation of a Palestinian State via negotiations between Israelis and Palestinian Arabs, leading to a bilateral treaty that offers certain guarantees to Israel's security.
  • The so-called "unilateral separation", the model already implemented in the Gaza Strip, with Israelis unilaterally retreating behind a huge wall and/or barbed wire, leaving the Palestinian Arabs on the other side and maintaining a state of war (which would imply bombing the Palestinian Arabs as much as necessary to keep them from launching missiles -or other forms o attack- into Israel).
The main problem in the region is that Israelis wanting to negotiate peace and the creation of a Palestinian State have so far failed to find a Palestinian partner to do so. It's the Palestinians who either make demands that essentially boil down to asking the State of Israel to commit suicide (like the already-mentioned "right of return for the refugees"), or simply refuse to negotiate, hell-bent on throwing the Zionists back to the Mediterranean. The words of Golda Meir remain as true as half a century ago: "Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us". It is in light of these unpromising circumstances that the West Bank Barrier being erected by Israel could eventually double as a de facto border behind which to retreat in case of implementing a "unilateral separation" from the West Bank.
As for the issue of Jerusalem, I'm a big fan of the proposal of the late king Hussein of Jordan, who proposed placing the Old City under the direct sovereignty of God, thus becoming neither Palestinian nor Israeli, but a mini-state open to all. Of course, this dream would only be possible under a peace settlement... not with an Israeli "unilateral separation".--Xyr (talk) 16:22, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Christianity is exploding![edit]

Ken's missive on the exploding growth of Christianityimg highlights the increasing inconsistencies within Conservapedia. Christianity is exploding and atheists are but a squeak in society!

In their defense, the atheism and obesity articles primarily focuses on America, or at least the Western World, while "getting more conservative" trope is exclusively focused on America.

Both at the same time for them. But as this is CP looking at it and saying "how is that logically consistent?" wont get you anywhere, let's ask "why is it like that?". Well, for that the answer is rather simple. Chrisitianity, theism and conservatism has to grow so they can spout of bullshit from their blog and believe they are "winning the war" — also they have to get a hard on, because their side is winning. At the same point the paranoia and "they are dangerous"-effect has to be kept going, because without it most of them don't have a reason to live (ironically, the exception is Ed). So, yeah, for them they are winning but the enemy is still dangerous as hell.

I saw those this morning and was going to post something here, but one starts thinking... what's the point? These ignorant fuckwits are just going to say "That doesn't answer the question" no matter how good the answer actually is. It's pretty clear to me now that none of these creationists have ever read a proper book on evolution and have no idea how it really works. They seem to cling to some half-assed ideas of what it means and then handwave the rest. It's like Douglas Adams once made that joke about the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal evolving into a spaceship, Douglas Adams believed in evolution, so they think that's how evolution works. Total idiots. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 15:11, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
Everytime I read stuff like this (the creationism bullshit), I feel empathy for for people that actually know this stuff. If even I, somebody who almost failed all science classes he ever had, have to headdesk, how do people feel that actually understand this stuff? I was reading those "rebuttals" before and most of them are either "Where's the evidence?" or "Not why, how?". What exactly are they expecting? Descriptions of the biochemicals processes on the evidence of fossils that probably don't even exist because all these things happend in water? And the worst thing is, some not even 2000 year old book that was written by some folks that weren't even there either is enough evidence to challenge people that have actually used their brains and not only their guts. This is why I can understand that people like Dawkins are so pissed off about these ignorant fucks. --ʤɱ soviet 16:10, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 16:45, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
They respond so poorly to answers and explanations because they're not really asking questions in the first place. They *frame* it as asking questions because it makes them look more legitimate, but "question evolution" and all of the "how come evolution can't answer these questions" variants that have existed may as well just be statements. Rather than "How does evolution explain sex?" they may as well just put "Evolution can't explain sex." That's the message they want to get across to people who just casually glimpse and/or hear about the campaign, because it'll stick in their head. Chances are most people who come across it won't know the answer, simply because it's never occurred to them to look it up, so it'll stick in their heads as a point against evolution. Some of those people will go on to do research and find the truth, some will go on with it in their head as something evolution can't answer, and a small minority will go on to join the crusade. I mean seriously, the questions posed aren't particularly difficult ones. An hour, at most, on wikipedia would answer them all, and they obviously have the technical know-how to do that (since they have all these websites), but they utterly refuse to because they're not looking for answers, they're just evangelising. X Stickman (talk) 22:28, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
The problem is that they think science is analogous to a religion - they expect it to present itself as one nice self-contained package with all the answers. If there is so much as one unanswered question, science must be wrong. They cannot understand this idea that science is a process of exploring the unknown. There are plenty of very good questions to be asked about evolution, which genuinely don't have solid answers, but if anyone answered "We don't know, we're working on it" they would cite this as some sort of evidence that science is misguided. ONE / TALK 08:26, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
Aslo remember that it could very well be the same people writing the strawman "questions" as the rebuttals. There is no evidence that they answers were even submitted let alone the best answers submitted. CMI could have just through bias, selected the easiest to refute answers, provided they didn't write the "answers" themselves. Remember that it isn't beyond creationists to flat out lie when it comes to defending their position. Their rampant quote mining is enough to condemn them of dishonesty. It isn't about skepticism or scientific honestly, its about propping up a dogma they are never allowed to question. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 10:24, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

In which Ken shows that he doesn't know how the 15 questions work[edit]

There is so much win in this section:img

It starts with Ken moving the post and slipping the word "Purported" before "Biologist" - nice bit of acting like a scumbag there, Ken - followed by his typical reply, "I disagree with you, so I didn't read it, and what what proof and evidence do you have that atheism is true?"

Seriously, the man is that stupid. He can't process any thoughts beyond that phrase. Full points to Max for pointing out, that as the questions are being answered from an evolutionist point of view, there's no need for them to answer that question. Plus he finishes off with by whining "by the end of the day, there will be about 300 less atheists in the world and about 80,000 more people calling themselves Christians and I don't believe that RudrickBoucher or the coward Richard Dawkins are going to change that."

Truly beautiful. Ignore the answers in front of you and chant the old mantra. No wonder he hides in his bunny hole (no intellectual there) when it comes to debates. --PsyGremlin話しなさい 15:01, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

I love it. He replies to only the first question, then goes off on a tangent and says it must answer this and that, which aren't even in the question, then jumps the edge demanding sources and evidence of his fallacious "proof atheism is true" crap. Half the replies to Ken are bewildered, WTF responses, the other half as metaphorical facepalms. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 16:38, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

I just don't get it. I was brought up as a traditional CofE Christian. And it wasn't the sort of stereotypical limp-wristed Anglican stuff either. It was muscular military and public (private to you Mercans) school straight-talking "this is wrong, you know it's wrong, and if you continue to do it God will tell you to fuck off when the time comes" Anglican stuff. And what Ken does when dropping his anaemic little turds all over the internet is exactly what they were talking about. He must know he's being dishonest, surely. Does he and people like him believe he has some sort of Holy Get Out Of Jail Free Card? That it's OK to lie for Jesus? Or does he actually believe all this crap? Ajkgordon (talk) 19:19, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
Sadly, as much as I'd like to think Ken is a lying sack of shit, I fear that he genuinely believes that he has a winning hand when it comes to debating people. It's the self-satisfied smugness that comes with his inane answers that's the giveaway. For Ken, throwing down "what's the proof and evidence that atheism is true" has the stopping power of an elephant gun at 6 inches. --PsyGremlinPraat! 19:31, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
The number one thing to remember is that Ken is a coward. Reading his opponents arguments would be an act of bravery. --Opcn (talk) 21:11, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
Lemme just pull up this quote from the Question Evolution! Campaign people's webpage:

"By definition, no apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the Scriptural record. Of primary importance is the fact that evidence is always subject to interpretation by fallible people who do not possess all information."

So lemme just spell that out for you. There is no evidence, no matter how compelling, no matter how well supported, no matter how blindingly obvious to all and sundry that can be true if it contradicts the bible. Of course the 15 questions can never be satisfactually" answered because the only satisfactual answer they will accept is "I was wrong and now I believe in Jesus. Where do I buy a Question Evolution! hat and t-shirt at a reasonable price?"

I mean, literally. You're arguing with people who have already said they are not rational and cannot be reasoned with, and whose worldview (stupidly) relies on something so demonstratably false they have to discount any and all evidence if it doesn't agree with their preconcieved notions.

Ken, if you're reading this and I know you are, this is why nobody will debate you and your stupid creationists. --Sasayaki (talk) 22:51, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

This is why those questions are disingenuous, because no answer will be a "satisfactory answer" no matter how factual or truthful it may be if it challenges their religious beliefs. They have no choice in the matter, they must reject all answers upon a fate worse than death. That is why scientists and other proponents of evolutionary biology and theory will not debate creationists. There is no point, there is nothing to be gained, they cannot be reasoned with. It is like trying to reason with an Al-Qaida suicide bomber who believes his god commands him to blow up the Infidel. You can't, all you can do is minimize (or if possible, prevent) the amount of collateral damage they can do, in this case to the education system, to science, and to the youth of America.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:41, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

I've not been able to access CP at all over the last 24 hours or so. downforeveryoneorjustme.com tells me it's up, and people here seem to have no problem making posts so is it really just me or are others in the UK having problems?

Are they blocking us at the IP level now? –SuspectedReplicant retire me 17:18, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm getting it over here. Wouldn't IP be 403? AFAIK a time out simply means that the servers didn't respond in a certain time. If you use Firefox, you might turn that option off, especially when it's set on a few seconds. Then just open CP and leave it loading for a while. --ʤɱ socialist 17:26, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I didn't explain that very well. I meant: are they blocking us at a router level now. 403 blocks came from the server itself, but if the router certain types of traffic even reaching the server it could cause the sort of error I'm getting. I've had timeouts before, but it's been constant for 24 hours and I'm getting no problems elsewhere.

Ken on Ameriwiki[edit]

I thought that we'd already agreed that 'Question' is Ken, and that he has write access to Schlock's blog. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 05:10, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

I thought Ken was the nameless contributor who turned up, threatened to debate anything that moved and then backed off because he was "too busy." --PsyGremlinPraat! 05:16, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Those two are not mutually exclusive; Creationist at CreationWiki= Ken, Conservative at Conservapedia=Ken, American at Ameriwiki=Ken, Question at QuestionEvolution=? It was because Ken has write access that he was able to delete the page after we laughed at it. I'm sure Soggy doesn't really care but Ken has to delete anything and everything to cover his tracks. BTW I see Ken has set up a special messages page at Ameriwiki and got his talk page locked so he doesn't get those annoying orange boxes after the 'excessive vandalism' by Ace. What a lily-livered wimp he is. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 10:27, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Said "excessive vandalism" equating to Ace asking Ken if he is Ken. I don't know who George Fitzgerald is, but he's clearly Ken's bitch - "User also has a preferred way to contact them" Yes George, it's called a "talk page" - the thing all users have on a wiki. Then again, they're letting Ken crap all over their wiki, so the project is doomed before it's even begun. --PsyGremlinHable! 10:44, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

That's not Ken. That's one of AceMcWicked's sockpuppets. nobsabandon hope all ye who enter here. 16:48, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

First of all, why are you sooo interested in posting on User:American's talkpage in the first place? All Ace seemed to be doing was harassing the user, so I locked his talk page until further notice. It seems so many of you seem to want to stalk this user. If he is indeed User:Conservative from CP, so be it. He is welcome here, provided his editorials are kept in userspace.

Nobs, that is interesting. If he is indeed a sockpuppet of Ace, this proves he is only there to cause trouble. Provide proof and I will infinitely block the puppet and block Ace for malicious sockpuppetery.--George (talk) 20:17, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

George, if asking somebody if he is indeed another user on another is "harassment" then I can see you learned your management style at Conservapedia. Especially as you seem to fail in knowing what a talk page is for. Why, pray tell, does user:American deserve his own "message page" when he has a perfectly good talk page? Are you worried the red "message" bar might induce an epileptic fit? Are you so worried that Ken won't be able to answer questions? Seriously, if this is how you're starting your project - especially given your paranoia, based on the ex-Head of Counter Intelligence's comments - then you might as well go the whole hog and introduce limited edited and blocking everything that moves. Or do you see Ken as being a serious contributor to your project? I can't wait to see the "Atheism versus ponies" essay on Ameriwiki. --PsyGremlin말하십시오 17:27, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Ken's machismo is showing again[edit]

Most bizarre comment: "certainly it is possible in some cases for someone starting with an IQ of 200 to suffer brain impairment, yet still be smart."

Has anyone shown Ken this article? It clearly shows that, in this particular study, persons with no religious affiliation had a lower percentage of obesity than every other Christian affiliation, aside from non-denominational protestant and non-traditional. I'm sure that he will dismiss it and claim the Gallup poll which merely asks about whether people live healthy is a better guide to religion and obesity than a study about, say, religion and obesity, of course. (To be sure, I merely skimmed the article myself.) Phiwum (talk) 12:51, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
Ken really shows what a despicable cunt he is with these edits.img First he says "I am not going to spend time addressing what I supposedly said 'between the lines'" - i.e. running away from the question, then says "I might have used another Conservapedians claims/source about BMI rather than use my own" as if that has anything to do with the article, before finally telling Sharon she's welcome to create articles about "Heterosexuality and obesity" and "Heterosexual females and obesity" because she has "more interest in such topics."

Just a note to all you wandals out there[edit]

I'm not sure if they're using a mass revert tool, but I think they are. For real comic effect, you wandals should use your account to first revert (use the undo button) a bunch of wandalism to obscure articles before going on your mass defacing spree. This would have the effect of causing the mass revert tool to actually revert many articles back to their defaced state. Don't thank me, just doing my bit to make CP more insular and paranoid. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 15:51, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

It obviously is a mass-revert tool, so what a waste of time. They should have let that latest idiot blank every page on the site, and then put them back at the click of a button, just to make the point.--

Don't think of it as vandalism; think of it as trying to help make Conservapedia worthwile.
I had a look at the dictionary project a few minutes before I posted my previous comment. The obvious parody alone accounts for about 95% of their entries. The fail on Conservapedia is about to reach the density where the whole thing disappears into its own private failgularity. One year from now all that will be left will be afterglow red-shifted into the microwave band. Andy is running out of time. He needs to make up his mind. What does he want to be remembered as?

Ah yes, Wikipedia[edit]

I edit Wikipedia as a regular user with no privileges. Over the past couple day I made several hundreds of maintenance edits to solve certain article naming issues in a certain part of the biology wing. I made page moves that violated firmly established site-wide naming conventions when I felt a nonstandard name made more sense in the context of the local subtree. I hijacked dozens of long-standing redirects, including fan names of popular US sports teams. I demoted large articles from headword main pages to footnotes and replaced them with disambiguations. I disassembled long-standing disambiguations and rebuilt them from scratch, removing fucktons of linkspam for veteran editors' personal pet sharticles. And what happened?
Nothing.
No TK jumps stabs me in the face and orders me to discuss before making disambiguation pages for silly foreign animals. No Karajou goes Serena Williams on me because my species articles don't conform to his inane amateur page structure and fail to feature his inane amateur taxon box. No weird old uncle jumps out of the bushes and demands a "writing plan". Nobody gives a shit about my flamboyantly sophomoric user name. Apparently some people are not entirely happy with what I'm doing; they make their objections known politely and helpfully. They assume good faith and offer constructive suggestions re: alternative meaningful courses of action.
Up until a few days ago I hadn't made any contributions to Wikipedia in about five years. I spent so much time watching the hostility and paranoia over a Chez Andy I completely forgot how easy it was. Mountain Blue (talk) 16:59, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Ed Poor plays(?) stupid[edit]

I almost want to give him the benefit of the doubt, but who knows...he may actually be that stupid:

  • Ed asks for examples of censored (deleted) contributions.
  • LArron provides such examples, explaining that the diffs are deleted, even providing screenshots of some deleted diffs and even explaining to Ed (a master of wikis) that he can view the deleted diffs with his powah.

I'd go for the latter. Ed was never interested in the evidence to begin with, and now that's he's been presented with it, he's going to resort to usual CP sysop bully boy tactics. Larron was always on a hiding to nothing with Smeg Ed. --PsyGremlin話しなさい 16:58, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
In the Great League of Cognitive Dissonance, Delusions and Megalomania that is called Conservapedia, every member seems to have a super power of ignorance. Andy's speciality is to completely and utterly ignore any mistakes he made, Kens power of ignorance is the aggressive flinging of crappy mantras ("You can't answer these 15 questions", "Atheists are fat", "Atheists are cowards", etc, etc.) and Ed has the amazing power to ignore everything he doesn't like about something he actually likes. So if Ed ignores he ignores with full power and complete laziness to look something up, not with a delete button. That makes Ed even funnier than Andy or Ken, from what he does he's either amazingly dumb, extremely dense but he never quite looks like such a bad character as Andy or Ken. This goes so far that you can't really hate him for what he does, either he's so dumb not to think that others are noticing that he's just playing dumb, or he actually is that dumb. Either way, I can't be pissed off by him. Like a child spilling soup. --ʤɱ constructivist 17:17, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

(ecx2)Ed is really turning on the stupid here:img
Ron: "This is a simple necessity for all protected articles, but a good idea for most of those articles some sysops feel strongly about."
Ed (possibly deliberately) misreads that as Ron saying the Counterexamples article was locked and is thus grounds for him to delete the entire conversation and accuse Ron of acting in bad faith.img
The arguing styles are quite interesting:
  • Andy - "If I ignore it it'll go away, if not, throw in a non-sequitur about the Bible"
  • Karajou - "Liberal! DIE! DIE! DIE!"
  • Ken: Your question/answer doesn't address this completely unrelated point which I've just brought up, so I'm not going to debate you anymore, because you're actually right and my faith is so shallow that rather than try and debate the merits I'll run away."
  • Ed: - (delete) "No, I can't see what you're complaining about" (block) "what do you mean, I can't see anybody complaining" --PsyGremlinSpeak! 20:02, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Ron, what would you call a "successful" debate? It seems to me that debates rarely finish with one party saying "I was wrong, you have changed my mind", no matter how comprehensively they are out-argued, so perhaps it is unfair to ask Conservative to produce such an example. (This is particularly true online, where obstinacy abounds.) In my view, a truly "successful" debate is one containing absorbing dialog that advances or deepens the understanding of all parties - and examples of these can be found all over Conservapedia talk pages. Perhaps now you could take this case as closed and move on to another issue?--CPalmer 09:58, 15 September 2011 (EDT)

Well, Andy himself has pointed out that breast cancer is God's way of preventing hussies with hollywood values from making more hussies with hollywood values, so Conservapedia should be happy to assist in further research in this general area.

I'd love to read some good Christian conservative's take on this. Mountain Blue (talk) 16:44, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
Hold on there partner: How would such breast cancer prevent the breeding of more hussies, unless they would have less time on God's earth to procreate. This would mean that less reproductive opportunities for the trait to be passed along would eventually eliminate or reduce the trait. That almost sounds like, like... I can't say it. I would go to H. E. Double Hockey Sticks. Jimaginator (talk) 19:02, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
Hussies that die younger have less opportunity to procreate.

Borked[edit]

Can't get CP to load. Recent changes flashes on screen for a second, then I get "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy." Are we running yet another DDoS attack against them? Hello Brian! --PsyGremlinTala! 06:02, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Have "we" ever run a DDoS? The one time we did gum up their servers (ironically at my direction) was during my attempt to get Andy past some arbitrary number of views before the 4th of July, and we stopped once it became apparent that the rate we would have to go at would be too slow to make the deadline. --Opcn (talk) 08:23, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
Loads fine here mate, I've not seen it borked at all recently. Could they have fucked up their server/router in some way due to the site being administered by a bunch of retards? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 11:28, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

I have problems viewing the site too. It's been this way for some time now. I've tried various things, and it seems that if I come in through a link from a search engine (Google) I can then navigate around the site, or from a "cached" page or link here (strangely) rather than from my "favorites" bar. It also times out if I try to load a view of 500 recent changes, but I have success viewing 50 at a time. I have no idea why this is so, or if any of this will work for anyone else.

Ok, I'll try my hand at the conspiratorial game... Here we go: For the record, Rob, you stated that Ken conducted a cyber attack on Human's website. Your proof of this? A post you made, stating that same fact. Thinking about this from a legal perspective, how would that hold up? The only proof we have for such a cyber attack is a statement you made, since obviously Ken isn't available for comment and the phone conversation between you two isn't public record. Someone could argue that you simply invented that accusation to accuse Ken. </conspiracy> My, that was fun. I think you'll have an uphill battle convincing anyone of that, especially considering that this is Ken we're talking about; as someone stated above, I think you're confusing Ken's ramblings for reality. άλφαΤαλκ 01:52, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
You're right. So, the question comes down to the credibility of the witness then, doesn't it? And as I've said before, I've yet to speak with Human on this matter, so there may be corroboration then, correct? nobsabandon hope all ye who enter here. 02:16, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
If this is something you're seriously interested in pursuing, I would consult a lawyer. I don't know the legal term for it, but we'll move past the "random people on the Internet rarely constitutes something that anyone else but them would care about." Moving past that, if it came down to you vs. Ken, here's what we have: you, arguing that someone who's potentially a mental patient, carried about a cyber attack against a business, and on the other side... Ken, who's potentially a mental patient who very clearly has barely enough knowledge to operate anything more than his web browser. See the problem here? Even if Human chimed in and confirmed having problems with the site, you would still need more sophisticated computer forensics to pin that on Ken specifically, because coincidence does not imply causality. άλφαΤαλκ 02:23, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── In all seriousness, though, I'll stop before I quickly exhaust my rudimentary legal knowledge. Talk to an actual lawyer if you feel it's an issue (and why would you? It would be an issue for Human to take up, not you). We have a few members here with legal knowledge, after all. άλφαΤαλκ 02:26, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

OH. MY. GOD[edit]

Please tell me he doesn't actually think that Carell (who worked on the Daily Show...) was denied an Emmy because of Conservapedia's dumbass listimg--"Shut up, Brx." 05:13, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Also Andy answers his own question "before it was ruined by political correctness" Why would somebody in a ruined show win an award? Not to mention that the US Office is even more horrible than the British version. --PsyGremlinParla! 05:22, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
"
"... Carell made "The Office" one of the Greatest Conservative TV Shows" I still hold my position as he never claims it was speceficly because it was on the list, just that it was "a great show that was conservative, and heres a link to why i say so". Wanna go use a sock to ask yourself? --SmithRob (talk) 05:24, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
Andyimg (exact quote): "The lame Daily Show would never permit the conservative humor that Carell portrayed on the The Office. Could that be why he left the Daily Show for the Office???" Yep, that's exactly why he went from minor role on a cable show to lead actor on a network TV show. What other incentive could there be?--Night Jaguar (talk) 07:29, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
Andy only tossed this in because he needed news filler for the mainpage right, as he has to ignore the only real news of the day, which is the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) as that would be a "liberal victory". Better to pointlessly politicize the Emmy's. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:29, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Erm, maybe I'm missing something, but isn't Carell primarily an actor on the show (albeit a rather good one), and only actually wrote about two episodes in the entire thing? Thus his ability to 'make it conservative' is kinda limited, especially now he's now left. I thought the show was actually primarily done by Greg Daniels, who was the one who accepted the Emmy for it back in 2006, and who adapted it from the UK version, which was written by the Ricky Gervais (who, incidentally, is an atheist, for the folk at CP reading this) and Stephen Merchant. Not only that, the show isn't exactly lacking in nominations and awards, so I guess this is just another case of reality interfering with Andy's point. 86.186.137.74 (talk) 12:49, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

So let me follow Andy's logic, a good conservative TV show is one that rewrites someone else's show? So conservatism is all about lack of originality? Makes sense to me... -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 16:10, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Was the US version of the office ruined by political correctness? I thought it was ruined when they ran out of UK episodes to rip off. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:43, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
Think broader! Conservapedia thinks conservatism as anti-liberalism. You can't have anti-liberalism without mentioning the liberals. The fact that the question "what will we do when the liberals have been eradicated?" isn't solved yet doesn't slow them down - there's still plenty of liberals to mock now. --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 22:23, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
I thought it was ruined by Flanderization (warning: TV Tropes is quite addictive). Anyway, to the surprise of no one, Andy doesn't get The Officeimg. The lack of a laugh track probably makes him see what he wants to see (even more than usual). --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:27, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
i dont get The Office either. i just think its not very funny. LordSlug You want me to do...work? what's that? 07:18, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
I have to say I don't watch tv so I have no idea what any show is like. Some people tell me the office is funny but tbh I doubt I will ever know. I do live just around the corner from Ricky Gervais' mum though if that helps? Oldusgitus (talk) 07:42, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm actually trying to understand Andy's point here. If Carell has been snubbed by the Emmys for making The Office 'conservative', how can it be that this show actually won an Emmy in 2006, two in 2007, and another in 2009? If the show is conservative, and the Emmys discriminates against all things conservative, as Andy seems to be implying, surely it's the show, not the actor, who would be 'snubbed'? Or am I just being too logical for Andy's point to make sense to me? 86.186.137.93 (talk) 13:17, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Andy's sole point is that liberals are the spawn of Satan while conservatives are at God's right hand. Every argument he propounds is just a means to that end. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 13:38, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Why didn't he just say "grandfather clause" then? Because the way he worded it really leaves the "so they made thousands of good edits within seconds of registering their accounts?" question wide open.

X Stickman (talk) 07:45, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Actually the grandfather clause would be hard to argue, because of how the rule came about. Crocrite or whatever, had his name changed to DeanS and within about 5 minutes was blocking active editors for having the wrong name. It was basically the case of a sysop making up a new rule, and then after making sure he was okay, went around retrospectivly applying it. They were no long blocks but it was still annoying. - π Moderator 07:55, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't know why, but that's it. Tolerating Ken's flying kitties and atheists-are-fat "essays" is one thing, but declaring them "Meritorious edits". Even for Andy this is really, really deluded. --Night Jaguar (talk) 10:20, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Every editor who follows the naming rule is a de facto parodist. It stands to reason; why would a good-faith editor worry about being blocked? Only liberal vandals would deliberately avoid giving the sysops a reason to block them. I know that every single one of not only my socks, but all the socks I've corroborated with via the mailing list follow the first name last initial format, I'm surprised the eagle-eyed sysops haven't clamped down on more off them yet!

Because (1) the claim isn't all that plausible, given Conservative's evident stupidity and (2) the only word regarding Conservative's dastardly cybervandalism comes from you and I can't imagine anyone would stoop to relying on your word.
