CP's attitude to Britain[edit]

So Andy puts up thisimg headline, and I can't work out whether he's trying to compare Britain favourably or unfavourably to Britain. Either he's trying to say how the American "lamestream" media is crap, or that even the "athiestic" British media (on one website...) are even covering it. Seems an odd remark, particularly where the UK is the land where if you want an abortion, you get one. If you don't want one, you don't get one. Everybody happy. Doraemon話そう!話そう! 21:45, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

The medical (scientific) experts were wrong, and it's a remarkable human interest story in GB which the liberal American MSM conveniently ignores. nobsEmpty Recycle Bin 22:01, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Seems like the doctors were right. The woman almost died to deliver two month premature babies. If she wanted to risk it, then that's up to her, but I don't see any reason for the doctors to alter their advice to the next woman in the same position. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:27, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Yup. Medically, this is a nonstory. They told her she was headed for the forever box unless she either got an abortion or rolled a natural twenty. She tried her luck and rolled the twenty. The end. Mountain Blue (talk) 22:32, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
And now the Brits have to be evil again.img --ʤɱ digital native 13:35, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Which, like everything the daily mail publishes, is a complete non-story. X Stickman (talk) 14:01, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Given that legend has it that Conservapedia began after one of Andy's students wrote "BCE" instead of "BC", it should come as no surprise that Conservapedia's main page now quotes the Daily Mail in saying, BBC turns its back on year of Our Lord. 2,000 years of Christianity jettisoned for politically correct "Common Era". A new round of Ken "essays" about how all Brits are fat, evil atheist nancy-boys is likely to follow.--Spud (talk) 17:22, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Oh I would love that! I remember he once instantly reacted to a British user with "Have you met Richard Dawkins"? Doraemon話そう!話そう! 23:20, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
No British crap. Atheism and Bestiality was an important stepping stone towards our ultimate goal, Liberals and Pedophilia, and we plan to use the momentum we currently have to glide to the next milestone. If we pull it off and get Andy to endorse our guro lolicon gallery on the front page of the Schlafly family's best known web site we get the print edition of the LA Times again. Mountain Blue (talk) 00:05, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

UHM's version that needed a bit longer to type in, but shouldn't be wasted either[edit]

Andy is jumping to conclusionsimg. So, yeah an American woman with cystic fibrosis gave birth to trplets.

Now here comes the crazy. Andy clames that the American media is ignoring it. Let's google this, shall we? Looking at the first two pages I see 1 (DailyFail) article about it from the UK and 3 (FauxNews,, WWLTV) from the US. Now this is enough evidence that the country that was almost at the bringe of - em - even more riots because of it's atheism and liberality is actually promoting pro-life causes now, right? Wait, if all this was true, why would they do such a thing?

And now for the other part, even the DailyFail reported about this because the woman was the first cystic fibroses case to give birth. How about some sugar on top of it? Kandace Smith, the woman who risked her live for the her babies to be born, isn't even married and therfor had pre-marital sex. It's a miracle! --ʤɱ anti-communist 22:05, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

A year-old miracle to boot. 17:54, 26 September 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ

Reliable sources, JPatt style![edit]

The USGS doesn't show an increase in earthquakes? Not to worry! An Earth changes nut saysimg that scientists are incapable of measuring these things, so Andy's right! Twice as many earthquakes every forty years! Phiwum (talk) 17:30, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

I enjoyed how he couldn't bring himself to state the conclusion. Even someone as stupid as JPatt knows what he's doing. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:34, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
But it's from CP's new favourite Best of the PublicTM news source. Therefore it's of far more use than anything some pointy-headed scientist could possibly say. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:47, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Wow. "Forget everything they tell you about facts! Facts aren't possible! Now accept what we tell you is fact!" Just wow. --ʤɱ constructivist 17:52, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Reminds me of the cranks who say there's no such thing as a global average temperature. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 17:57, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Well, as we all know, the Earth Changes movement and the sysops at Conservapedia are like peas in a pod. No hypocrisy here! Phiwum (talk) 18:18, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
I rather like this oneimg. So 81% of Americans do not use faux news for their news but jpatt thinks in some way this is something to be proud of. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:53, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

The Penn Teller Internet Challenge![edit]

Kenny thinks that some random dude on the Internet challenging Penn Teller to a debate is some how worthy of front page newsimg. Of course Penn will likely ignore the challenge, if he is ever even aware (As I am sure he receives many silly messages from random nobodies on the Web and routinely deletes them as a matter of course); which in turn will be interpreted as a victory by the cowardly Ken (who refuses to accept any debate challenges himself) and his mallcop, motorcycle buddy out in California.

Bonus is Ken's claim that atheism is on the decline because the Brights website isn't doing so well. By his logic, conservatism is also dying based upon Conservapedia's own rapid decline using the same data site. As if single small site is a good barometer for measuring the success or failure of an entire large and diverse movement or set of beliefs.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:38, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

":Ohimg myimg Yesimg, weimg knowimg aboutimg itimg. and kenimg knowsimg about it as well! --Mikalosa (talk) 14:34, 25 September 2011 (UTC)"
As i said above, the obsession with Penn is deep. This is why you shouldn't speak up about the site--Mikalosa (talk) 20:47, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Ken only "challenges" Penn because he knows Penn isn't going to respond to a challenge from some guy using an anonymous moniker on the Internet. Why would he? There is no guarantee he even be replying to the same people each time or someone(s) different. To him and most people without delusions of grandeur, it looks like some random Internet troll or parodist trying desperately to get his attention. Ken thinks he is some major Christian apologetic force and big time philosophical defender of theism on the Web. What he doesn't understand is too most everyone else, he is just an anonymous troll on some fringe site that may or may not be parody or poe.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 22:54, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

We don't wanna be globalist at CP[edit]

User: Maybe we should make this a Disamb. page and move this content to US pres. election? Andy: We don't cater to globalism here at CPimg --Mikalosa (talk) 20:51, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Without further comment: "Another example of misguided globalism was the failed effort to convert the U.S. to the metric system."img --Sid (talk) 21:14, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Does the metric system have a liberal bias? --ʤɱ libertarian 22:15, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
It's french/European--Mikalosa (talk) 22:17, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Andy's right about one thing, in that it certainly makes sense not to have such a disambiguation page at CP. No one's going to be looking for the other elections, even when they do have a few "articles" on them. Those other redlinks ain't turning blue anytime soon, I'll warrant. Hell, you could delete those, and 80% of CP, and no one would even notice any loss of information. Their US election page is the only one of those anyone ever looks at (and by "anyone" I mean the handful of editors they have), so it doesn't make sense to have to click through another page. It's been stated from the beginning that CP has a US bias. DickTurpis (talk) 22:27, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
If Andy had said it like that, it would have made sense. But no, he had to tie the concept to some "globalist agenda" and throw in the metric system as an example for extra lutz. The bunker mentality and paranoia runs deep.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:02, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
I dislike the metric system. dunno why.--Mikalosa (talk) 23:04, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
I hear you. I think we do it right here, really. Metric for sciencey stuff, the old system for day-to-day crap. I like being 6'2", and have no interest in being 188cm or whatever. Likewise I'm a big fan of my pints. DickTurpis (talk) 23:54, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Someone tell Andrew that the inch is defined as 25.4 millimetres. Sphincter (talk) 02:06, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

The world is becoming more conservative[edit]

I actually somewhat agree with Andy here, though not much. The right has made many victories in Europe (though the French assembly just took a turn for the liberal), and Islamophobia has risen. In the states the debate has degenerated into whether or not Obama is a socialist. Political correctness and multi-culturalism are widely ridiculed.

Although I don't think this is part of a great trend (coinciding with the world's increasing stupidity- aah, Andy, you've given us so many laughs). It's just the ebb and flow of politics. Socially, at least, the world is actually getting more liberal. In the past hundred years civil rights and women's rights have made great strides (although he and his may want to claim the African-American civil rights movement as conservative, we know who was chanting States' rights back then), and gays are increasingly accepted. IDK about economically, but if there's an over-arching trend, it's towards social liberalism.--User:Brxbrx/sig 21:28, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

They call them progressives for a reason. DickTurpis (talk) 22:19, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Of course the European definition of "conservative" may well not be quite what Andy means. There are atheist conservatives here and everything! I know; I'm one of them, and I found it educational that when I discussed my conservative views at TAM this year everyone else thought I was way out on the left. Conservative as I may be though, Andy's moronic "project" and the antics of Ken fill me with disgust, loathing and the urge to start pounding skulls with an empty absinthe bottle - one of which I unfortunately now possess. --Longbow (talk) 22:23, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
There are atheist conservatives in America. What "liberal" and "conservative" mean to people differ widely around the world, as the meanings of the words have compared to say, a century ago. There is no universally accepted political definition. That is one (or many) critical flaws in the thinking on CP; they think American social conservatism represents conservatism everywhere, and that it is the only "true" form of pure conservatism for the whole world, regardless of history or culture.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:09, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
There are definitely shared traits among the world's right.--User:Brxbrx/sig 23:10, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Bigotry and stupidity, though, are not two of them. The most right-wing political party in Germany that doesn't actually wear brown shirts is the FDP, otherwise known as "Die Liberalen." They're a free-market party that wants to cut taxes, they're so conservative that they opposed the recent spelling reform and the last party leader was openly gay. --Longbow (talk) 23:19, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
I suppose.--User:Brxbrx/sig 23:20, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Indeed. Even in Britain, the British National Party, considered the far right, are actually a bunch of Socialists when it comes to economics. The Economist did a very good survey between British and US voters a few years back which proved that the British Conservative Party is far more left wing than the US Democrat party. I really do blame the US 2-party system for this sort of thinking... Doraemon話そう!話そう! 23:39, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Of course the BNP, until Nick Griffin came along with all his black-separatist friends and started trying to make it at least a semi-respectable choice, was technically a NATIONAL Socialist party anyway... --Longbow (talk) 23:56, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Jeb Bush currently #1![edit]

Jeb is now #1 despite not even running in the first place!img, it wasn't added by andy but as of me typing this it still stands.--Mikalosa (talk) 23:02, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Moved to 2. Still nuts that hes on there as he is, and I believe it may have been mentioned, NOT RUNNING.--Thunderstruck (talk) 00:23, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I could almost see him being ranked rather high (not #2 but up there), if he were considered a strong candidate who, if he were to declare, would likely jump to the top, as Perry basically did, or Palin might have at one point (though not so likely anymore). There's word that Christie could be That Guy, and Daniels or Huckabee maybe could have been. But there's no huge groundswell support for anyone with Bush in their name right now. His brother is still a pretty badly damaged brand, and Jeb was never hugely popular on a national level. Also, having Pawlenty on the list at all is ridiculous. He dropped out because his support was so thin. Should he for some reason jump back in it's just going to be even weaker. Whatever. Andy's a retard. DickTurpis (talk) 01:23, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I asked Andy a while back about that. he said people actually running for the spot isnt the most important reason in deciding if they should be ranked.--Mikalosa (talk) 01:50, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Awww... they removed Ralph Nader from 'Potential Democratic Candidates' (interestingly, added by Rob Smithimg; he also added Bernie 'not a Democrat' Sandersimg).
Anyway, if they have Jeb Bush listed why not also list other just-as-likely possibilities, like the dead body of Ronald Reagan or an aborted fetus? --Night Jaguar (talk) 03:06, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
While Andy was in control of the Republican list, the Democrats were all Rob. At the time he had Obama as something like the 4th most likely nominee in 2012, despite him being the fucking incumbent. I forget the details, but he later admitted it was some sort of propaganda initiative to make Obama seem more vulnerable or something. Because, you know, Conservapedia has the sort of stature that allows them to dictate such things. DickTurpis (talk) 04:59, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't remember if it was CP or some conservative, but they mentioned that "it isnt about truth, its about making the other side look bad"--Mikalosa (talk) 05:05, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
CP in a nutshell. Anyway, Whether someone is running isn't necessarily the main factor, in a way. For instance, someone who is about 50% likely to run, but, if he does, could expect about 25% support would have odds around 13%, which is much better than someone like Newt, who is 100% running but has only about 5% of the vote. Perry was in a similar situation before he declared. Nevertheless, Jeb is probably less than 25% likely to run, and could probably only count on about 10% support if he did, so he'd be closer to 2.5%, making him much currently worse odds than Newt, and nowhere near Romney or Perry. DickTurpis (talk) 05:16, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Intrade gives him a 4% chance to run and a 0.3% chance of becoming the nominee, appropriate for someone who's repeatedly said he won't join the race and hasn't done anything to convince us otherwise. The rest of his list isn't any better, either - he's got the current front runner beaten by all the other declared candidates except Huntsman and Santorum, and it's still totally cluttered with fantasy candidates who never seriously considered a run. He just doesn't give a shit about updating it or coming up with a coherent method for ranking them. Röstigraben (talk) 05:53, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Admittedly I pulled my numbers out of my ass, and made them especially generous to illustrate that even in a best case scenario Jeb would still be far from a frontrunner. Still, .3% might almost be a bit low. Given the dearth of viable candidates, there is still a small opening (provided Christie doesn't try to fill it), and candidates always say they're not running until they say they are. Should he jump in the race he probably would immediately lead at least half the current candidates (at first) so I'd give him more like a 1 to 2%. But that's not really based on all that much, obviously. DickTurpis (talk) 14:21, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Sure, we all have to make our assumptions and come up with mostly arbitrary numbers when asked to express them in a quantifiable way, I wasn't criticizing that. And here's no reason to believe that the market consensus is always right either, otherwise there wouldn't be any money to make Smiley.gif. After all, these are the same people who, on average, believe that there's still a 30% chance that Sarah Palin will get in the race, which I'd call nonsense. Many GOP base voters and elites are apparently much like Andy in how they keep pining for idolized fantasy candidates instead of settling on one of the guys they've got. Röstigraben (talk) 15:00, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Edit or Die![edit]

Seems like Conservapedia:Karajou has something against Andy's quieter followers, going by the carnage hereimg.

A thread a few weeks ago dealt with Karajou blocking old accounts that had made virtually no edits, and to his credit, the likelihood of those accounts coming back and being genuine probably isn't that high. In this case, though, a lot of these accounts must be new, because the user names would have been blocked on site. About your post, though; is that maybe the wrong capture? I don't see any actions by Karajou there at all. άλφαΤαλκ 02:45, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Anger bear is on the caseimg What he doesn't realize is that any accurate description of a coward is going to cover Kendoll because Kendoll is accurately described as a coward. We say "jump" and Karajou asks "how high?".--Opcn (talk) 03:17, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't normally go for parody, but that's about the best kind there is. Shame it wasn't done at a more leisurely pace. Though it's nice to know how apparent Ken's cowardice is to CP folks. Ego (talk) 06:30, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I have been waiting for the Doctor to write more, you just know he has more to say... If you're reading this Doctor be sure to write more on the subject! --Opcn (talk) 10:32, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
It's not even really parody, the only reason it's funny is because it brings the truth too close to the coward nerve at the heart of CP. It occurs to me after all of this coward talk that Cowardice is really at the heart of CP, it's run by a whole bunch of failures of men who are afraid to face up to others and so they got together and built a fort where they get to write the rules and write reality to their liking. --Opcn (talk) 10:35, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

What happens next?[edit]

I've been thinking about this one for a while. And I need to ask: What do you think will happen to RW if CP does die/get abandoned/whatever? LordSlug You want me to what's that? 05:48, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

That won't happen for years yet, but that would just accelerate our post-CP transition, where we have steadily become less and less focused on CP.--ADtalkModerator 06:05, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
RW will wither down to a much smaller size, if it manages to transition some people will return but mostly it will be a different crowd.

In the unlikely event that Andy throws in the towel I would imagine RW would buy the domain and post stuff that would make people at Encyclopedia Dramatica blush. CP's credibility would go slightly up. As for Ken, it's kinda worrying to think what he would do without CP.... hopefully just post "essays" about atheists being into homosexual necrophilia and placentophagy elsewhere (feel free to use those on CP, Ken!). --Night Jaguar (talk) 07:16, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
It would be great to let Ken continue to edit happily away but unprotect everything so other editors can challenge, question, and change his assertions; then see how long he lasted. Although I'm not convinced the guy isn't a) mentally unstable, b) a poe or c) some combination of both. Tielec01 (talk) 07:39, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

  • CPalmer: "1 day block so you can cool down."

  • CPalmer: "Sure, why not."
Of course, that means that now, Ken can come out of hiding to deliver a smug response to Leonard.

(EC)Is it really "disruptive" to step up to a challenge repeatedly offered by one of their most prolific editors? I mean if Ken had never once offered a debate challenge, and this guy just showed up and was all like "Haha hey ken you're dumb", that would be pointlessly disruptive editing. But he's specifically responding to one of Ken's primary points: that he's totally up and ready for any debate but it's the atheists who back off and hide because they're pussy cowards. He has to publicly and clearly make the offer because otherwise it'd be dealt with in typical CP fashion (i.e. completely ignored). The taunting parts might be a bit much but it's significantly less than what Ken does by himself. The only way these edits are "disruptive" or even offensive is if they straight up know that Ken never *really* wants to actually debate. Now, we know that, and they know that, but they can't admit to it. So I basically applaud this lil' slice of Ken taunting if only because it forces their hand on their own site. They're pussies and cowards and they're openly acknowledging it. X Stickman (talk) 14:06, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Just to clarify: Yes, I know that he's too much of a fucking coward to debate anyone and I am deliberately taunting the fucker about it. However, should he grow a pair of testicles at any point in the future I WILL debate him and I confidently expect to pound his ignorant arse through the floor. --Longbow (talk) 14:12, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
With all due respect: big fucking deal. Everyone knows that Ken is literally incapable of forming an argument. I am certain that you would "win" a debate with him as well, in the sense that you are remarkably more likely to form something like an argument than he is. And yet, in the end, nothing would change and Ken would certainly claim victory using the same amazing and infuriating non-sequiturs as we see daily from him. I understand that you're pointing out his hypocrisy and cowardice (though, I don't think you should sock up after a ban). I just don't get the bravado with which you declare that you're more competent than the half-wit. Who isn't? Phiwum (talk) 22:37, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

I think Ken has a fondness for drink[edit]

So you guys know what I mean? He can't type right, he is forever forgetting things and going back to add them, and he can't think straight, he is always getting off topic. Watching Dr. Dean argue with him is like watching someone argue with a drunk. does anyone have any thoughts on this? --Opcn (talk) 08:51, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

I suspect Ken's a Methodist in which case he probably is not a great aficionado of demon drink. However, his obsessive night editing sprees probably indicate significant sleep problems and sleep deprivation can often resemble mild drunkeness. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 09:00, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I have many thoughts about Ken. The most important one is that he's a fucking coward. He's just been offered an online debate - which he claims atheists are too chicken to give him - and he's running away AGAIN. What a complete wet feline vagina. --Longbow (talk) 09:03, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

I think our Schlafly household mole said that Andy wasn't much of a drinker. As for TK saying it, well I think most people who had dealings with the late Terry Koeckritz discovered that he was an inveterate liar. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 11:28, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
TK was an alcoholic himself, and often accused others of being alcoholics - back at HON it was one of his favorite weapons to discredit someone and try to destroy their reputation. Schlafly's daughters boyfriend (Kettleticket or whatever he called himself) posted (here at RW) that he ate dinner at the Schlafly's and spent lots of time there and that Andy did not drink at all. (talk) 16:32, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Real alcoholics are often quite good at hiding their drinking, especially from casual visitors like a daughter's boyfriend. In fact, I believe it was reported that Andy spent a lot of time holed up in his study on the computer. Retreating to a private room for hours is classic alcoholic behavior.

It's silly to think Andy is an alcoholic. Alcoholics are generally proud, and defensive of their habits. The exception is if they are a relapsed alcoholic, in which case, they understand a sense of shame of it. Andy is simply a nut, not an alcoholic. In fact, framing him as an alcoholic would be making excuses for him. -Lardashe
I admit I am basing my analysis largely on my uncle, who is a relapsed alcoholic, and when he falls off the wagon he tries (unsuccessfully) to keep his drinking hidden from my aunt. Now, I am in no way saying Andy is an alcoholic, I'm just saying that the word of someone who had minimal contact with him is hardly definitive. Nor is the opinion that Andy is too uptight. I'd say it's not likely he is, but we can't definitively say he isn't either. DickTurpis (talk) 14:27, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

From the dusty archives of my memory, Ken's ramblings remind me of the crabs in the seaside rock pool from The Perishers (UK comic strip back in the 70s). They think that their pool is the entire world and when Boot the dog looks into the pool they are convinced that the 'eyeballs in the sky' are some divine visitation.

In Which Mara Gets Mad About Stuff and Things[edit]

People say Conservapedia is hateful — and in some ways I agree it is — and yet, would you read on Conservapedia someone advocating someone else commit suicide? I don't think you would; if anyone tried, I'd expect they would be banned instantly. This just goes to show, that no matter how hateful Conservapedia is, the RationalWiki hate machine can be much worse. (((Zack Martin))) 00:48, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Not subhuman, just very, very stupid and malicious with it. Perhaps you might care to go and read what Conservapedia has to say about atheism and mass murder, bestiality, obesity and paedophilia and then rethink exactly who considers who subhuman.

Jeeves, I think some of the articles User:Conservative writes about atheism do actually have valid points behind them, although I agree he has a style of polemical exaggeration and excess. If atheism is true, how can there be objective morality? And, even while often seeing it as purely subjective, many atheists do seem to adopt a particular kind of morality, i.e. utilitarian — and positions such as that "bestiality is wrong in all cases" are difficult to justify given utilitarian ethics. Now, some other things he says, like his attempt to link atheism to obesity, are rather over the top and silly. To me this is part of the problem — I disagree with a lot of what Conservapedia says, I disagree with a lot of what RationalWiki says, but I can see that both have some valid points to make — and not the sort of purely minimal validity implied by the saying "a stopped clock is right twice a day".

Well, a large chunk of his articles seem to be his own rehash of presuppositionalist apologetics. I don't read his articles as something he cooked up entirely by himself — he is, by his own admission, taking ideas from elsewhere (e.g. his frequent referencing to CMI), and presenting them in his own way. Admittedly, his own way of presenting things leaves much to be desired, but is it wrong if I read his ideas with the knowledge that he is deriving them from elsewhere? And if those ideas he takes from elsewhere have some degree of validity, then his own presentation of them must too. (((Zack Martin))) 02:06, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

"there is no effort to try to appreciate any of the valid points User:Conservative makes." Which points, exactly? That atheists always lose out to ponies? That there is a relationship between atheism and obesity? That there is a relationship between bestiality and atheism? That there are flying kitties? That Richard Dawkins lacks machismo? That Penn Gilette is a coward? That there is an atheist schism? That there is a causative relationship between sexual orientation and smoking? That Gerald Calente is worth listening to? That Asian women are turned off by atheism? That atheists should have listened to Moses? Gay bowel disease? That Swedes prefer sex with animals? That Keynesian economics is linked to pedophilia? That people who believe in evolution are cowards? That there is a link between belief in evolution and bestiality? That liberalism is linked to bestiality?

You're being so charitable, you're seeing things he hasn't so much as implied. Kendoll's "articles", at least those that aren't entirely batshit insane like the flying kitty series, are all of a likeness. They take one single datum, often dubious, and extrapolate from one to infinity. For example, do you know how he decided that women don't like atheists? He went to one of his various web statistics tracking sites he uses, looked at the stats for Richard Dawkins' website and saw that it claimed his audience was skewed towards males. That's his whole data set. He then wrote, I think, more than a dozen articles on the strength of it. He will never ask how that data could even conceivably be accurate, or indeed whether website viewership determines one's prospects for marriage. Likewise, take his article on Britain and Bestiality. On the strength of a highly ambiguous quote in a Swedish newspaper, he's decided that atheist Britons fuck their pets. It's not clear that the British study referred to actually deals with Britons at all, and in fact I should say that would be an unusual reading of the text. He'll never try and track down the study to read it and check if it was reported accurately. All he cares about is demonising atheists. I don't care what your own problems with atheists are, but if you can't acknowledge this obvious fact then I don't see any point in discussing anything with you. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 02:36, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Let's just start with the atheism/bestiality issue. Many atheists don't believe in objective morality, since it is difficult to see how the worldview of atheistic materialism has any room for objective ethics in it — if there is no objective ethics, then sex with animals can't be objectively wrong. Putting aside the issue of ethical objectivity, in practice many atheists subscribe to utilitarianism (whether they understand that as the objectively correct morality, or just as their own personal choice of morality). From the perspective of utilitarianism, it is very difficult to justify the claim that "sex with animals is always wrong". So, not all atheists believe bestiality is not immoral, and not all people who believe that bestiality is not immoral are atheists, but I certainly think there is a correlation here — atheists are more likely than non-atheists to reject the claim "sex with animals is always wrong". So, User:Conservative does have some valid point, even though one can certainly criticise some of the claims he uses to buttress it. Does that make atheists bad people? I don't think so — actually, when I was an atheist I also believed that there was nothing inherently wrong with bestiality, although since becoming a theist I have come to the conclusion that it is wrong. I think I was mistaken when I thought that about bestiality, but I don't think it made me a bad person. Peter Singer has similar views, and while I don't agree with him on it, I have a lot of respect for Peter Singer. (((Zack Martin))) 02:44, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

I think Conservative is making a version of that point, although I don't think he expresses it very well. I believe in the virtue of charity, which implies that when something your opponent says can be interpreted in multiple ways, you should choose to interpret it in the way most favourable to them, the way that makes what they say come out as rationally and sensibly as possible, rather than in the way most unfavourable to them. Believe others are expressing valid points poorly rather than blabbering nonsense — that is the virtue of charity as practised in the intellectual sphere. (((Zack Martin))) 03:02, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
I don't see how it's a virtue to take someone else's words to mean something they evidently don't even imply, because what they do say is nonsense. Go and actually read his bestiality article. Really read it, not just closing your eyes and rehearsing your own particular opinion. He's my little potted summary of his points, such as they are:
  1. Peter Singer, a liberal atheist evolutionist, holds views that don't agree with the Bible.
  2. Psychiatric patients are more likely to have engaged in bestiality. Atheists are insane, therefore....
  3. Skatje Myers is like Peter Singer.
  4. Various countries that have more atheists than the US have people in them that engage in Bestiality.
  5. Joseph Stalin, an atheist mass-murderer, ordered people to do funky things with animals.
There's no merit to this article. Anything you see in it is a product of your own imagination. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 03:16, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
As I said, I try to read him charitably, which means trying to see what points he is making which could be valid. At the bottom, his basic claim is there is some association between atheism and bestiality — a claim which I believe has some truth to it. Peter Singer is a notable example of this — P Z Myers' daughter a non-notable example. (I am also a non-notable example, since as I have said, when I was an atheist, I believed bestiality was moral.) If we want to talk about Sweden, I would say that there is some evidence that Swedish society is more tolerant of bestiality than some other countries (see e.g. here) Can you imagine American politicians opposing the criminalisation of bestiality? Is different levels of religiosity a relevant factor here? I would suspect so. Now, Stalin's experiments, I admit are rather irrelevant to the issue — trying to breed humans and animals is not necessarily about bestiality, since you can try to do so without sex — which is exactly what Stalin's scientists were attempting. Those experiments failed, and were ethically very questionable — but I think even in their failure, that was a positive contribution to our scientific knowledge, so it is not a purely negative tale.

"From the perspective of utilitarianism, it is very difficult to justify the claim that "sex with animals is always wrong"."

(EC) Well, I've stated my argument why I believe atheists are more likely to believe that bestiality is morally acceptable than non-atheists. It would be nice if we had some quantitative evidence here, such as opinion surveys, but unfortunately we don't to my knowledge, but still I think there are good reasons to believe that claim is true. Now, then you start bringing other, rather different issues, into the matter – such as paedophilia. A utilitarian basically believes, if it doesn't harm anybody else, you should be free to do it. We have very clear evidence that paedophilia harms children, so from a utilitarian perspective paedophilia can be justified as wrong. Now, if a woman lets her adult male golden retriever have its way with her, is she harming the dog? There is no evidence for that — the dog is probably enjoying it. If she is harming anyone, she is harming herself. But, how is she harming herself? If she is, it is not in the obvious ways such as causing pain or misery — and these are the ways which utilitarians accept as morally relevant. She is harming herself by failing to live up to her true purpose as human being — but utilitarians tend not to accept such a thing as existent, or at least not as morally relevant. So, given that atheists are more likely than non-atheists to be consistent utilitarians, atheists are more likely than non-atheists to accept bestiality — but the same cannot be said for paedophilia, or rape or murder.

  2. Utilitarians are more likely to believe that bestiality is moral than non-utilitarians.
  3. Therefore, atheists are more likely to believe that bestiality is moral than non-atheists.

  1. Says who, besides you?
  2. Based on what? Go back to your Bentham or some other noted Utilitarian thinker and see what they say about it.
  3. That conclusion has no support beyond your conjecture.
  4. Therefore I have no reason to even consider your premises or your conclusion until I see evidence that supports them. With no evidence, there's no argument worth considering. Take your lame-ass syllogism back to your Freshman philosophy class and come back when you know how to make a proper argument supported with proper evidence. B♭maj7 (talk) Shut the fuck up, Maratrean 03:34, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
  1. What do you think are the most common ethical theories among atheists? Do atheists display a different distribution of ethical theories from non-atheists? What do you think? How about actually trying to have a serious discussion about the question?
  2. I have already given good reasons why utilitarians are more likely to accept bestiality as moral. Did you read anything I wrote above? Utilitarianism is not limited to Bentham, it has evolved since then. But hey, if you want a noted utilitarian who defends bestiality, try Peter Singer.
  3. If A is more likely to B, and if B is more likely to be C, then A is more likely to be C — valid syllogism or not?

  2. Singer is one guy, and not all that noteworthy. Are there others, or are you picking that one because he fits your worldview?
  3. No you haven't, you've made up a bunch of stuff without even talking to any real people who might give you some support for your claim. Go talk to some dog-fuckers and tell me what they think, if you want to make an argument about them. Or get me some stuff from people who have.
  4. Still no reason to believe any of your "more likelies" are actually so. B♭maj7 (talk) Shut the fuck up, Maratrean 03:50, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
  1. No numbers are available; but while I agree quantitative argument is preferred, where it is not possible, qualitative argument still is possible. I have shared my impressions; if you don't agree with them, how about sharing your own?
  2. Peter Singer is a very notable contemporary ethicist. The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy mentions him 20+ times. Bestiality is not an issue which has garnered a lot of philosophical attention, but if you want to point me to a utilitarian who argues bestiality is immoral, I'm all ears
  3. You still haven't engaged with my arguments as to why consistent utilitarians should accept bestiality as moral. Do you argue the contrary, that consistent utilitarians should hold bestiality to be immoral?
  4. So you admit the syllogism is valid?
(((Zack Martin))) 04:15, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Atheists are more likely to be utilitarians than non-atheists.
Flawed and unwarranted assumption. In reality, a staggering number of "Bible-believing Christians" are utilitarians; they're simply not forthright about it.
Utilitarians are more likely to believe that bestiality is moral than non-utilitarians.
Flawed and unwarranted assumption that presumes that every non-utilitarian belief system is going to find bestiality immoral.
Therefore, atheists are more likely to believe that bestiality is moral than non-atheists.
So, do you deny premise 1, premise 2, or both? Or do you deny that the conclusion follows from the premises?
Neither premise is logically permissible; ergo, whether or not the conclusion follows from the premises is irrelevant.

--Phentari (talk) 03:53, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Phentari, are a staggering number of "Bible-believing Christians" utilitarians? Can you cite some examples of "Bible-believing" Christians who adhere to utilitarianism? I don't think it is a common position among Christians, especially not among conservative ones.
Not every non-utilitarian belief system is going to find bestiality immoral, true. But, considering the ethical belief systems that people actually hold, as opposed to ones that are merely possible — if you look at the main competitors to utilitarianism, such as deontology, divine command theory, virtue ethics, their adherents in practice tend to believe bestiality to be immoral, even if those theories don't absolutely demand that bestiality be immoral — and, contrary to utilitarianism, there is nothing inconsistent between adopting these theories and holding bestiality to be immoral. The main exception I see here is the kind of property rights oriented deontology held to by people such as Robert Nozick or Ayn Rand — I can conceive of a reasonable argument from those premises that bestiality is moral (i.e. my animal is my property, and I can have sex with my property all I want) — although I'm not aware of anyone holding that position who has actually stated that bestiality is moral in their view (and I can conceive of ways in which Randians at least could argue themeselves away from that conclusion.) So, anyway, I still believe the evidence available supports that premise.
Finally, the point is the argument is valid; yes, whether it is valid is a separate question from whether it is sound; but the fact that the argument is valid is not irrelevant. (((Zack Martin))) 04:23, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

I normally try to avoid site politics for various reasons (a complete disinterest not least among them), but honestly now, this statement is problematic: Admittedly, his own way of presenting things leaves much to be desired, but is it wrong if I read his ideas with the knowledge that he is deriving them from elsewhere? And if those ideas he takes from elsewhere have some degree of validity, then his own presentation of them must too. The key word here is if. Therein lies the problem. They don't have any degree of validity. As has been said before, there isn't any data supporting Ken's ideas, and by simply choosing a few outliers that seem to support the views the two of you hold, you completely discredit any point you're attempting to make by lowering yourself to the same depths as Ken. I can imagine how much you desperately want acceptance and validation for your world view, but you won't find it by spouting conjecture that amounts to little more than nonsense. (And if you need any more data points to invalidate your claim that RW supports suicide or some utter nonsense to that effect, I'll happily state for the record that I don't support anyone committing suicide. Seeing as you've made arguments before on a few scattered pieces of data, my statement alone should completely and utterly convince you that the site as whole doesn't support suicide.

Well, as I've said above, there is evidence to support the idea that atheists are more likely than non-atheists to reject the idea that bestiality is immoral. So, I see some aspects of his claims on this issue to be supported by evidence, even if other aspects of his ideas are not.
This issue really has nothing to do with my worldview or my religion. It is simply trying to counteract the excessive CP-bashing on this site. Conservapedia has its flaws, there are aspects of its worldview that I totally reject — but this place is sometimes just one big over the top CP-hatefest.
I never said RW supports suicide. I said that the RW mob doesn't take people telling other people to commit suicide sufficiently seriously — something which I believe is true, and today's events have only confirmed in my mind.

Some suggestions for Ken[edit]

Bestiality will only hold Ken's interests for so long. Let's help him out and suggest other baseless smears he can use. His next obsession can be Atheism and...

  • Shortness of Height
  • Homosexual Necrophilia
  • Punctuality
  • Lack of Hand Washing
  • Interracial Cannibalism

Please add more! --Night Jaguar (talk) 07:31, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Andy is actually against hand washing, so its doubtfull he'll want the word "Atheism" attached to it...--Thunderstruck (talk) 13:05, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Anal bleaching.

MtDPinko Scum 07:33, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

The only one which would get Andy to pull the plug on Ken's articles is

  • Atheism and masturbation

Agreed. My point was that several editors have left and more have asked on andy's talk page for him to either comment or take action. And instead he argues with his brother about relativity.

Its interesting only because its obviously hurting the site by causing users to abandon it, keeping potential new members from joining, and further marginalizing CP from the political conservative community; yet instead of realizing their mistake, Andy and Kara's pride forces them to defend this dribble through either protecting Ken from displeased members direct criticisms or remaining silent as he plasters his dribble about animal boinking all over the front page.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 10:35, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Karajou channels Ken![edit]

Well, it's official.img Not only does Karajou support Ken, his defense sounds exactly like Ken "the critics of the present bestiality articles have not refuted the evidence against the information included in those articles. They want the articles themselves hidden and/or removed from the site, which begs the question: do they want to get away with themselves or their ilk having sex with animals?

No, you massive fucking moron - do the words "family friendly" mean anything to you? --PsyGremlin講話 13:45, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

He means "evidence for the information", which is still awkward. Bestiality isn't anywhere near mainstream, it's animal abuse. Animal rights are a mainstream topic right now, especially among liberals, so how in the world will bestiality ever be mainstream? And since when does one atheist represent everyone? And aren't they taking what he said out of context? Senator Harrison (talk) 15:22, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Wait, for a minute there I thought you were expecting some sort of intellectual honesty from Karajerk? --PsyGremlinHable! 15:29, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
What evidence does he mean? That some people out there boink animals? Common knowledge. Like Psygremlin said, it isn't appropriate for a family friendly website. Ken is also attempting to distort the problem of bestiality as something that exists primarily because of atheism, or is supported by atheists in disproportionate amounts, or is deemed "acceptable" by the atheist community at large. However he has not provided evidence to back any of these implications, so really the articles are slam pieces with the sole purpose of trying to make atheists look like degenerates simply because they are atheists.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:12, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
It's not a new thing. Unless I'm mistaken, this is the same way the obesity obsession started. There was one study that found that atheists tend to be more concerned about their health or something, and from that sprung dozens of "all atheists are fatties!" articles the same "all atheists are fatties!" article copied and pasted over and over again. «-Bfa-» 16:34, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
I like how he talks about how they could be stremlined into 1-2 articles after he banhammered the only person who was talking about how that was the problem. --Opcn (talk) 16:25, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Like most articles Ken posts on a particular subject, most of the Bestiality articles are almost purely copy and paste and could easily be condensed into one, maybe two articles without any loss of information. Of course in Ken's mind the fact a couple folks who also happen to be atheists are sympathetic towards the practice means that atheists everywhere must be; projecting the tendency of the religious to be dogmatic onto the secular.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:54, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
It's actually kinda sad how Karajou clings to power. He just wants to be a part of the "winning side" - Andy is a pushover unless he develops a random new "insight", Ed pretends no conflict exists and simply moves over to Wikipedia whenever CP is getting too hot to handle, TerryH doesn't care about the site beyond Atlas Shrugged and spamming his links, Jpatt is just a Tea Party fanboy who's riding on CP's "big-name popularity", so that pretty much only leaves Ken. And Ken is so strong in his stubborn idiocy that opposing him is wiki-suicide (Hi, Rob!), so Karajou has to support him if he wants to be active and in charge, even when that means defending bestiality articles on a family-friendly project. --Sid (talk) 17:01, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
What I find really funny about this is that nobody on Andy's talk page argues the articles should be deleted because they're shit, instead it's "Oh for heaven's sake, won't somebody please think of the children." It never even occurs to anybody that content being poor or unencyclopedic is grounds for removal. Everybody accepts that crap is par for the course on Conservapedia, even its seemingly sincere contributors. The bestiality articles (at least the first few, I stopped reading the copypasta after that) weren't explicit, so ol' Kenny might have a point here.
That's not to say there isn't a double standard. Popeye would permablock anybody other than a sysop trying to add even the most basic information about human sexuality to Conservapedia, but Ken's crap is now untouchable. Godspeed (talk) 17:21, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
They tried that with the flying kitty but they all got blocked. So yeah, all of Ken's bullshit is accepted as encyclopedic on CP. To reinforce BMcP, I don't even know what evidence Karajou wants people to refute. I can't find a single fact, just assertions. I was about to make an account and try but that was what I found. Senator Harrison (talk) 18:12, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Silly dork who is so inept he is idealistic about Conservapedia indirectly calls out Karajou on the inanity of it all; dies from shotgun blast to the abdomen. You know you've lost if the Simpsons can sum up your enterprise in one frame. Mountain Blue (talk) 17:11, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Fueling the fire[edit]

(multiple ECs) Well, even without touching the whole issue of how the animals feel about it and/or whether they consent, it doesn't sound terribly sanitary (I didn't research it, but I'd imagine there are STDs and such), and most animals are quite capable of fucking you up (in more than one sense) if you piss them off. So... yeah, it does strike me as non-good, regardless of whether or not Sky Daddy threatens to level my neighborhood with cosmic flames. --Sid (talk) 17:51, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
I'd think they'd have similar processes which make intercourse pleasurable. STDs are pretty much off the table; you could test or use protection. Occasionaluse (talk) 18:16, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Well take a look at this. But besides the dangers, I do think is wrong, even if I cannot give a good reason why.--Tlaloc (talk) 19:01, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

I view it the same way as trying to have sexual intercourse with the severely mentally disabled. They have no ability to really understand and thus no real ability to consent even if they find it "pleasurable". In that regard I see it as little better than forcing oneself sexually on a young minor. For me, it is just another form of rape, and that is what makes it immoral in my view. Of course I also have the emotional "ick, hell no" factor on top of that. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:15, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
So for you, meat is just another form of murder? And therefore eating meat is immoral? The "ick factor" is real, but not logical. Occasionaluse (talk) 19:21, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
I stated the "ick" portion of what I said was emotional, which means it isn't logical but a base relation upon my part (but for my personal life alone, serves as enough). It is the part before that where I stated why I oppose to the practice on a rational ground. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:26, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
So does your standard for "animal fucking = raping" apply to "animal killing = murder"? Is forced labor for animals slavery? Is animal husbandry an illicit sex industry? What about cutting off their balls? Riding them? Keeping them locked indoors? Occasionaluse (talk) 19:28, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Animal killing purely for pleasure to me is cold blooded, unjustified murder. Killing animals because we are omnivores and use animal meat to survive as a means of sustenance isn't. What possible constructive or vital need for humans does bestiality serve?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:54, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
That's irrelevant because things that aren't constructive or vital aren't necessarily illogical or immoral. Occasionaluse (talk) 19:58, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
What logical, moral, or rational reason is there to doinking animals? Personally I think most do it because of the power factor they have over the creature. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:23, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
The rational reason would be pleasure. What's the null hypothesis for a proposition's morality? Moral, immoral or unknown? Occasionaluse (talk) 20:25, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Does it make it ethical or moral? I am sure someone can tell me the reason they as a 40 year old man has sex with an 11 year old girl is that he gets sincere pleasure from it, but its still taking advantage of an impressionable child who could easily be manipulated or coerced into agreeing, which makes it ethically and morally wrong.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 22:40, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Having a rational reason could make it ethical and/or moral, for all I know. Do you feel we're taking advantage of animals in general, or is this specific to bestiality? Occasionaluse (talk) 01:34, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Well STDs and "they can fuck you up badly" is also there with humans, so it doesn't really work that well. Also the consent is questionable, but as somebody who never had a pet I really don't know how much something like that can be shown by the animal. Ironicly the only reason there really is, is "it's unnatural" — which would, if you have no problem with homosexuality, polygamy and all the other stuff some people find disgusting — be quite hypocritical to use. But then again, that argument doesn't really fly that much because there are also inter-species (inter-special?) "relationships" out there. So really there is no fucking reason other than "it might go wrong". All that said, I don't care for dog, cat, horse or any other animals ass. Also, let's pretent there were intelligent aliens among us, would that also be bad because it's a different species? As I have seen no outcries about stuff like this from fundie Christian about Star Trek Human/Klingon or Human/Vulcan couplings either, we don't seem to have much of problem with that... --ʤɱ secularist 19:24, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Probably because all those aliens were, as sapient beings, openly capable of both understanding and consenting.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:28, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
I wasn't really going for the argument from consent, but let's suppose animals weren't able of consenting. Then all sex between one species would have to be rape. Now, I ain't no biologist, but that isn't how it looked in those documentaries. Now one might say that is instinct, but is it much more with humans? --ʤɱ sinner 19:52, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
You could probably twist BMcP's logic to justify rape. Reproduction is the crux of vitality, therefore rape could serve constructive, vital needs. Occasionaluse (talk) 19:59, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
I too remain unconvinced by the arguments against bestiality - yes there is an 'ick' factor, but to paraphrase Peter Singer - If a girl gets of by riding a horse, who is harmed? I do admit I find the issue of consent problematic, but if somehow you could show that the animal was ready to get down, then I don't see any -ethical- problem with boogying. Cosidering many people torture and kill animals simply for degustatory pleasure, having sex with them seems like the lesser of two evils. Tielec01 (talk) 23:11, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
It doesn't really say much that people do worse things to animals than rape them. There are people who torture and murder children. That doesn't make pedophilia okay. Two animals willingly having sex isn't an issue because they're (more-or-less) cognitive equals; when it comes to a (human) adult having sex with a child or an animal then there is an issue of whether there ever could be consent because of the great power inequality between the two parties. Bestiality seems, at least to me, to be even less problematic than pedophilia since a child of sufficient age is far more sapient and more like the adult than any animal. (Aside: Yeah, this whole discussion definitely isn't going to help with Ken's latest obsession.)--Night Jaguar (talk) 00:30, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
It does matter when you accept them as moral/ethical/logical. There are people who torture and murder children. That doesn't make pedophilia wrong. How do you feel about an animal forcing itself on another? It happens all the time and I imagine you don't see anything wrong with it. Is your standard consistent? In what other situations do you require "consent" from animals? Killing them? Forcing labor upon them? Forcing them to have sex with other animals? I still haven't seen a good reason bestiality is "bad". It's because there isn't one if you don't have a god to tell you it. Occasionaluse (talk) 13:25, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
The argument from mental capabilities is a bit wacky. Equally so the argument from mental equality as a factor. Let's suppose we have rather dumb guy with an IQ of 90 and a pretty smart woman with an IQ 160 (genius level) and an animal with an IQ around 50. Now between the guy and the animal there's a difference of 40 IQ points, with the guy and the woman with a difference of 70 IQ points. Solely comming from the question of mental capabilites sex with the animal would be more ethical than sex with the woman. Now the question may be how much understanding of the act and it's consequences have to be there. But keep in mind that there's no way we know for sure if the animal got the reaction chain right. I just did a little google search on the intelligence of doplhins, most answers suggested that it is guessed around two thirds of humans. Are we sure they don't get that chain? On the question of consequences, from what I understand there simply are none more than pain and pleasure.
If we are going to question this in any way, it should be consent. Now, I would say that consent is there as soon as the animals does the for it's species usual mating behaviour towards a human. There's your consent. It is as much consent as you can get from any living being. I would actually like to know were the big difference should be between animal making such actions and a 16-year old getting naked and saying "take me". what is expressed in the one case with motions, is in the other case with language and motions. Of course forcing yourself upon a living being no matter what species is wrong (for me wrong stand for "unbeneficial to the society as a hole, in the face of future desicions") and either animal cruelty or rape. --ʤɱ sinner 15:05, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
The big difference for me (living in Germany) is that bestiality would get me done under animal protection laws but nailing a consenting 16 year old is legal. --Longbow (talk) 15:13, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Forbidden != Unethical[edit]

We might reasonably decide to make something illegal because although it's ethically fine, it doesn't seem necessary and it's confusingly similar to something that's not ethically fine. Many Jews will be familiar with this logic. This is the rationale behind the restrictions RW has previously discussed on sex with minors in the UK. Sure, says the ethicist, the relationship between this 16 year old girl and her 25 year old teacher might be a lovely mutually respectful situation in which both parties are completely aware of what they're getting into, and in that case it would be ethically OK. But, says the legislature, most of the time it's just someone taking advantage of impressionable young kids, so let's shortcut the ethics discussion and just tell teachers if they do that they go to jail. (talk) 22:08, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

It is my position that every single bit or morality stems from this same process of generalization. It's just too expensive to always figure out if things are right or not on a case by case basis. --Opcn (talk) 22:47, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
In most cases limits are entirely arbitrary. There is nothing magic about any particular exact number of years that makes it suddenly OK to have sex, vote, drive, drink, gamble, go to war or be held criminally responsible. Furthermore, sometimes someone of legal age becomes in need of extra protection because of reduced mental faculties/immaturity but I've never heard of a case where someone with advanced faculties/maturity gains an exemption.

Four pics[edit]

nightmode at CP
  • red: night-mode activated: only sysops and the users of the group edit may edit
  • green: night-mode deactivated: every user can edit
  • unshaded: account creation allowed
  • shaded: account creation forbidden

Over the last weeks - since RobS opened the floodgates - CP is trying to use night-mode and (de)activating of the account creation option to control the vandals (other than Ken). Really, they should up-date their guard-dog program (it's a simple task)...

blocked editors at CP, RW and WP
I like to put CP and WP in a perspective: When CP was founded I thought it could become a rival to WP, there was press coverage enough, and the homeschool movement could have used the project. But by sticking to a surprisingly consistent streak of bad decisions, Andy ruined his chance...

I think the point is that we're not a rival of CP. Our origin lies in CP's history, but there's no competition or even similar missions (while both WP and CP aim to be encyclopedia projects).

It's all very well using Tor to avoid IP blocks but editing from a load of different IPs is just as likely to get your account blocked as well as the Tor IPs that you used. The only ameliorating factor is that now that TK's gone it's pretty much just down to Karajou to do all the checkuser work.

Ann Coulter + Andy Schlalfy[edit]

I found an old edit back in 2007 from Andy wherein he claims Ann Coulter is a personal friend. Interesting...Anyone else know anything of this? Aceace 03:11, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

...or it didn't happen
No. Aceace 03:17, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Don't know any more than you do, but it wouldn't surprise me if they were acquainted. Coulter and mummy dearest probably move in similar circles. Friends on the other hand seems like a bit of a stretch. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 05:01, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Andy is likely "friends" with everybody his mother is friends with, his mother being a fairly influential conservative; Andy is likely "friends" with a number of conservative figures in the United States. He also went to Harvard, so he's at least made acquaintance with a number of other conservatives not necessarily associated with his mother.--User:Brxbrx/sig 05:39, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

I've spent a lot of time in quasistudent activities. With all the People in HLR OBama would not have bothered to learn Andy's name unless he was really a nice guy (obama, we know andy was a prick). I get the impression that Andy hates hates hates the law. I know plenty of lawyers and they tend to craft rules for what they do, granted crooked rules with loopholes and backdoors, Andy couldn't write a set of bilaws to save his life. In spite of repeated scores of editors asking him again and again over the years he never put any kind of thought at all into anything but the most basic of guidelines, and those he gave a giant sloppy loophole to for anyone who matters to him. If he loved the law he would be a better lawyer too, instead of the third rate lawyer that cranks hire because he will spinelessly go ahead with any fool hardy plan that they have while other lawyers guard their dignity. --Opcn (talk) 12:52, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Ray Comfort disagrees with Conpedia[edit]

A 2007 survey in the U.S. showed that the number of 18-25 year olds who were atheist, agnostic or nonreligious had increased from 11 percent in 1986 to 20. [1] [2]

When I tried to access the videos I found they are private, what does Ray Comfort have to hide?

Ray gives no clear definition of atheist, agnostic or nonreligious and nonreligious particularly is a vague term that needs definition. I wouldn’t expect a Christian evangelist to exaggerate the number of atheists, CP regularly pretends atheism is declining but Comfort may want to frighten readers into buying his products.

Americans please tell us, is this decline in faith true? If it is within a generation the US could become much more like Europe and other industrialised countries.

(I put this into the Saloon bar as well as it’s important generally and not only because it contradicts CP.) Proxima Centauri (talk) 07:48, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

All these things 'doubling' over time... Peter talk, or type, or whatever...
There is definitely "Secular creep" in American society and culture. I wouldn't go so far as to say America will be like Europe as far as secularization in a generation, but religion and religiosity is on a slow decline here. Although a good many secular and non-theistic people do not or will not explicitly declare themselves as "atheist" although they share atheist views implicitly.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:45, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Increasing secularism plays right into the evangelist's persecuted hand. I'd say secularism is creeping. Lots and lots of people are CP:XINO, but aggressively so. I remember in a casual conversation with a drunk girl at a bar, she mentioned she was a Christian. I asked her why. She broke down in tears and told me she didn't really know. Weird. On the other hand, in half the country, you probably couldn't walk around in an anti-Christian shirt for an hour without getting into a physical confrontation with someone who obviously doesn't understand the finer points of Christianity. Occasionaluse (talk) 13:36, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Does anyone believe for even a second that the letter on Comfort's website is genuine? I like how it hits every evangelical talking point in one succinct paragraph (as if all atheists share that exact same set of beliefs). άλφαΤαλκ 01:15, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

I am considering undertaking a project to automate most postings on TWIGO:CP and save you people a lot of time. However I will be very busy for the next 90 days so it may take awhile. For example, the sections about Ken are just as repetitive as his articles: the same old things pasted again and again. Same goes for posts about CP being a blog, about random vandals wasting time and not being immediately reverted, and I would say at least 60% of this page. The only bit here that decisively passes a Turing test is LArron's graphs. -- (talk) 18:28, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Erm excuse me 95.194 but the discussion on bestiality has actually been quite thought provoking and even mildly entertaining. It's made me think anyway about quite why I find the idea of bestiality icky (as I notice people are now saying) but I find homosexuality non-icky. Now I realise the nuances of a reasoned debate like happened here is FAR beyond the ken of cp'ers who see the world through their sad little hate filled blinkers (not that you are necessarily a cp'er let me hasten to say) but I found it well worth the subscription I paid to join this happy little group.

Well, going by Ken's logic, they would not lobby to outlaw bestiality, but rather atheism. Which would be kinda funny.

I can't understand the first sentence:

So, this letter describes a letter? Barack Obama wrote, "Let me tell you about a letter to potential donors...."? Or is the encyclopedia entry not about the letter, but only about the bolded phrase? In that case, shouldn't the title be "Barack Obama's 'If I don’t call you' fundraising letter" rather than Barack Obama's "If I don’t call you" fundraising letter (note quotation marks)?
