Karajou defends the status quo[edit]

You gotta be politeimg, present your refutations, and then drop it (so they can completely ignore you and hope it goes away). Ah, yes, Karajou, ignore the fact Conservative has been uncivil since the beginning. Also kinda funny SeanS and JamesWilson tow the line by ignoring Conservative's incivility. I bet a majority of Conservative's talkpage comments for 3 months have been trolling/insults to others. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 22:56, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Then Kendoll will say you're a fat, sheep-raping evolutionist atheist who can't provide proof and evidence that atheism is true and correct, and you can't answer the holy 15 questions and that you are brain damaged. The article will be locked and no corrections will be made. Then you'll probably be banned. That's a quality control process you can believe in. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:18, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
I can accept Ken being a complete dickweed because hey, he's an Internet troll who has been doing this since before CP even existed, so this is just him acting on the knowledge that he can't be touched. But Karajou channeling both Ed and Ken to defend the latter? I still can't believe my eyes. Oh, and Andy is still ignoring all of this - it's like the Rob vs. Senior Sysops all over again! --Sid (talk) 00:10, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm not ignoring the sysops stuff, I just know theres no point in arguing them.--Mikalosa (talk) 00:38, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Even you're not immune from the banhammer. Hell, look what happened to Rob for arguing. Senator Harrison (talk) 04:11, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
And what's the point of even trying to add proper content to CP when everyone's reaction is going to be, "Oh, that's that bestiality site. Ha ha, no thanks." Nope, Ken's raving is destroying all remaining credibility. --Longbow (talk) 07:26, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
The worst part is the cumulative effect: If this was just a brief lapse of sanity, it would eventually sink to the bottom of the wiki, and people would be able to forget it even exists. But Ken not only builds a link-network of all his idiocy and ties it into high-profile articles, he also keeps going. So now we have a wiki full of ma-CHEESE-mo, debate challenges, bunny holes, clowns, Indian dancers, pedophile economics and bestiality. There is no way the other editors can counter this flood of bullshit, especially not with Night Editing cutting their time in half and Ed or Karajou randomly fucking them up for arbitrary reasons. --Sid (talk) 08:53, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
I just had a look at Karajou's latest megalist of blocks. I see that he's blocked AmirK and TennaK on the grounds that they're "sock of LeonardS." Well, I was LeonardS and I can assure the imbecile that they weren't socks of me. --Longbow (talk) 09:33, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Even without Ken's well thought out insightful articles, there's always "Oh wasn't that the site that called Prof Lenski out?" and that was the Grand Poohbah himself making the site a laughing stock. Scream!! (talk) 09:38, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
A very valid point, and much-needed perspective. It's easy to forget things like the Lenski Affair and the Conservative Bible Project when faced with Ken's obsessions. --Sid (talk) 09:49, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Karajou's quote just might have made my day. Occasionaluse (talk) 13:37, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Fess up, Longbow. You're also Human, too!img AHA! KARAJOU SEES ALL. EVEN THE LIES. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 14:05, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Nope. LeonardS was me, but Human wasn't. His paranoia is probably preventing ANY new users from joining CP. Of course this is an excellent reason to make it worse. --Longbow (talk) 14:07, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm almost willing to bet that Karajou and Jpatt are right now active in the mailing list, considering to write The True Story about Ameriwiki. --Sid (talk) 00:14, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Why is it that communists are all atheists when they are out a murderin' but when communists build a hospital that doesn't count?[edit]

That's total bullshit accounting! --Opcn (talk) 01:47, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

The atheist hospitals thing was torn up on several occasions in several places, mostly on Andy's talk page. The tl;dr version is basically "Atheism is not a group of any sort, it is the absence of religion- hospitals built by atheists are thus generally not built as 'atheist hospitals.' They are just hospitals."--User:Brxbrx/sig 01:51, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Oh yeah, as an argument it's been toast for the last 50 years, but I thought Andy still used it anyways, he has no problem with bullshit reasons (counterexamples anyone?). I was just reflecting on Hugo Chavez going to a hospital in Cuba, and Andy bragging on it being a crappy communist hospital, I'm tempted to ask him what religion the people who built the communist hospital ascribed to. --Opcn (talk) 01:58, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Oh. That's why you should post links. I thought you were dredging up that old topic, my bad--User:Brxbrx/sig 02:02, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Linkimg --Opcn (talk) 03:59, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Be wary, and check your facts. Andy would have no problem keeping a straight face while saying that if a hospital was "built" 300 years ago by Catholics, that's what counts, and you must ignore the subsequent extension, refurbishment and even demolition and reconstruction of the hospital by people unaffiliated with any religion, because they're not building the hospital. (talk) 09:57, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Karajou's blog[edit]

Someone mentioned it above, so I followed the link to his most recent blog post and I noticed a few things. He really doesn't seem to think there is anything wrong with the messages in Conservaleaks; it's just general chit-chat, banter, etc. Also, he doesn't seem to understand at all what constructive criticism actually is... since calling someone a "lying lunatic" and "trash" isn't constructive. It also annoys me that he's always referring to the reader. "Did you read this, reader? For those of you reading this..." etc. I guess he thinks if he continually mentions people reading his blog, people will actually read it? All right, I know I just gave it a hit by clicking on it, but it's a worthy sacrifice for my entertainment. The entire setup just seems like the ranting of an angry, lonely person. άλφαΤαλκ 12:50, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Any way we could get a Google Cache of Kara's articles? I'm morbidly curious, but I'm not giving him pageviews. --Sasayaki (talk) 13:03, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Here's one. I tried to use a capture on the most recent but CaptureBot blocked out most of the text for some reason. άλφαΤαλκ 13:04, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

"The ravings of a lying lunatic" - well, yes... Cantabrigian (talk) 13:06, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
My thoughts exactly. Also, CaptureBot just does not like blogger pages; even in the google cache's, it blacks out all the text. Can someone take a screenshot of those through their machine? My linux screen capture tools aren't up to the challenge of a scrolling web page, unfortunately. άλφαΤαλκ 13:23, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
There you go. I saved it under a different name. --ʤɱ pirate 13:43, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Of course, "recent" being a relative term, seeing as Kara seems to have given on his blog. And - at the risk of blowing my trumpet (damn that extra vertebra!) - here's my reply to his post, seeing as I was the "lying lunatic." The again, we are talking about a man who thinks the DDoS attack on CP was because of his cartoons upsetting liberals. --PsyGremlinHable! 13:38, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

There are several Firefox extensions that can cap whole web pages (can't remember which one I have around here, should probably scoot there - but there are several that probably work nicely). Of course, I also think that using screenshots for web citations is kind of lame; pros use Zotero. =) --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 22:18, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Two of the nice add-ons I've seen (Screengrab and Fireshot) don't work with Firefox 7 or Linux, respectively. Zotero might be nice, but I really don't need something really designed for citations when I'm literally only looking for screenshots. άλφαΤαλκ 03:06, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Jpatt, an idiot[edit]

Not worth a wigo, just thought it was a tad humorous in it's attempt to glorify the FRC..

"Thanks to the FDA Family Research Councilimg, we now know 14 deaths are directly linked to the abortion pill RU-486 (or drug overdoses or murder, we're not exactly sure, but who cares)." (emphasis mine) Occasionaluse (talk) 18:31, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

I was impressed with his mention of RU-486 hazzards as well. A Freudian slip perhaps? Surely Jpatt wasn't thinking about pregnancy and Daisy Duke at the same time? --Longbow (talk) 18:47, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Andy rules with a silent fist[edit]

Can anyone figure out what ~4,000 bytes he just vaped? Occasionaluse (talk) 21:29, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Well, the entire section where Kara defended ken is gone...--Mikalosa (talk) 21:35, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Concerning the "beasts"
For the record, the critics of the present bestiality articles have not refuted the evidence against the information included in those articles. But 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? In my opinion, these articles may be reduced or streamlined to one or two, but when it comes to some loud-mouth atheist supporting bestiality and demanding that it be removed from certain psychological definitions so the mainstream accepts that filth, yes, this website is going to expose it. Whether or not the critics like it is their problem. Karajou 09:38, 28 September 2011 (EDT)

It is being slathered all over a site that is supposed to be, as Andy says, an educational resource for children. Why do we need need 10's of articles all saying the same thing over and over when you could add a small subsection to the main article on the topic which I can't even type. And do you know the reason I can't type it? Because I am on a shared computer and network! Even looking at recent changes for anyone who isn't at home on a personal, private network and computer is against many obscenity laws/rules! The other issue is the only "facts" are that Peter Singer said something on the topic, as did PZ Meyers daughter, and some countries don't have laws against it(including many States in the US!). MaxFletcher 15:57, 28 September 2011 (EDT)
I don't think that people are objecting to the exposure of some atheists condoning bestiality, so much as the way it's being done, the number of articles which all basically the same thing and the attitude that's been shown to those who have concerns about it. Personally I think it could all be done with sections on the main bestiality article, seeing as most of the others only contain information that's already in that one anyway. It does look like an issue that's causing a lot of controversy, unfortunately. --MarkSlough 09:49, 28 September 2011 (EDT)
And do the words "family friendly" mean anything to you? Given that Conservapedia was created to avoid the smut and filth of WP, it's doing a good job of wallowing in filth at the moment. RayMcCauley 09:49, 28 September 2011 (EDT)
What evidence, Karajou? The original article made reference to ONE atheist's comments and from there it's grown into some weird strawman about evolutionists and Swedes and Britons all loving them some down and dirty time with animals. There isn't a single fact mentioned that links an atheist (or evolutionist) with being charged with an act of bestiality. Not one, in all the repeated articles. There's plenty of innuendo, but no facts. Typical of kdbuffalo's work.
And as has been mentioned - what happened to the "family friendly encyclopedia"? Conservapedia manages to talk about sex without mentioning genitalia, and yet badly-worded, non-factual smear articles about bestiality are ok? --AlexB2 12:21, 28 September 2011 (EDT)
No, there IS evidence. Skatje Myers is also an atheist, so there's clear evidence that some atheists don't have a problem with bestiality. The problem is that there's nothing to show that atheists are more likely to approve than Christians are, or more likely to be involved in it. The fact is that bestiality has been illegal in the UK (the subject of one of the articles) for nearly 500 years and that it's legal in more of the 10 MOST Christian US states (5) than in the 10 LEAST Christian (4.) What we need is evidence to show that atheists are more likely to approve/commit bestiality than theists. I agree though, it's not very family-friendly. --ThomasMacD 12:26, 28 September 2011 (EDT

That is an odd section to remove - he kept the complaints but removed the defense. Perhaps he doesn't want it defended on his page? Thinking if he remains silent then he can say, if someone in real life complains, he never supported it... Aceace 21:41, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Kara was basically asking for people to attack it on its merits with his defense, which was a stupid idea. --Opcn (talk) 21:44, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
The critics don't want to improve CP's reputation, they want to have sex with animals. That's basically what Karajou said. nobsEmpty Recycle Bin 21:50, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

I really hope the next time some newspaper or whatnot interviews Andy about Conservapedia they ask him about this bestiality stuff. Whether an alleged homeschooling education site should have it.

It is very telling that Andy started the delete with Karajou's post; evidently he's displeased with that line of defense. But is also an approval of Ken's dribble. Most important, he's paying attention to the nuance and direction of the discussion and controversy. I'd advise not engaging in ad hominem's against the Bestiality series author on Andy's talk page, focus on substance, sources, and CP's image on the wider-internet. Bring in links to Andy's talk page and document the reaction. Andy loves a flame war. But avoid discussing or attacking the series auther. nobsEmpty Recycle Bin 17:06, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Rob, the problem I see is that Ken's articles aren't really "wrong", they're just bizarre and distasteful and subtly use rhetoric to make unstated, fallacious implications. It's just weird. No one wants to be around a guy obsessed with bestiality. It is about him and not so much the articles. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:14, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
I'd say the chances of Andy doing anything about it are now zero; Ken say the articles have brought in more trafficimg and although I think KhalidM's next comment was spot on, Andy won't agree. --Longbow (talk) 12:02, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Ed Poor will return to Conservapedia...[edit]

... on Oct 1, 2011: that's when his latest ultimatum runs out. Remember:

I asked for an instance of ideological censorship. If I don't get one by the end of this month, I'm going to stop asking. --Ed Poor Talk 10:54, 15 September 2011 (EDT)

I predict that he not only will stop asking, but will not have addressed RonLar's example of censorship presented to him here. And of course he will ignore any further example, perhaps by citing his deadline.

OTOH, stating this prediction will change the course of history (hi Uncle Ed!) larronsicut fur in nocte 12:19, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

If Ed still reads RW, it's only to enforce his perception of it as a hate machined geared towards him. Ed does/says terrible things. Ed reads about himself doing/saying terrible things. Ed thinks "Oh, they're saying such terrible things about me!" Ed has all the reason he needs to dismiss you. Occasionaluse (talk) 13:43, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Ed can dismiss like no other. It's either a sign of great mental discipline or a sign of a brain whose mind has vacated the premises. --Opcn (talk) 15:19, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Well duh, Mikalos, we'll spell it out in slow sentences just for you: the subject here is "censorship", not blocking. The posted link argues for de-sysoping, not blocking. Now, if you would like to actually contribute something to a discussion, you could try beginning with the context of the discussion, and leave your bigotry and bullying at home. Thanks. nobsEmpty Recycle Bin 01:18, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
Bah, the whole thing is silly because how will you prove ideological censorship? This is just as silly as "We don't block for ideological reasons here!" The censorship is happening because you have a bunch of whiny douchebags not being able to handle honest debate, and you have blocks because people refuse to blindly bash liberals/atheism/evolution as is expected of them. Neither of those reasons is an ideological one. Just like "I don't like you, so I will ban you" or "It's Friday, so I'll delete a talk page" are not examples of ideological censorship/blocks. Sure, it's dishonest, despicable, douchebaggish, and deceitful, but it's not ideological. They do not block or censor because you're a liberal, and that makes it all okay in their eyes. --Sid (talk) 22:25, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
And yes, Ed is the Grand Master of looking away. He knows that if he acknowledged that something bad is happening, he would feel the need to interfere - but that would lead to him losing his precious, precious sysop powers. So he simply refuses to admit that anything is wrong and will invent more and more excuses to be able to look away. In the meantime, sysops are oversighting and burning talk pages left and right, anybody who speaks up is conveniently silenced, and Ed simply moves over to Wikipedia whenever he feels his presence is needed on Conservapedia. "If I close my eyes, the evil surely stops existing!" --Sid (talk) 22:32, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Oh it's bollocks and anyone with half a brain and no delusions realises it. The fundamental goodness of the universe in the face of evil. Yeah, tell that to the prey of the parasitic wasp that is eaten alive from within that the universe is fundamentally 'good'. Tell that to the slug being eaten alive by the ground beetle, I'm sure they'll appreciate that the universe is fundamentally good as they slowly get their life munched away. And lets not get into the galaxies which are slowly being devoured by other galaxies destroying tens of millions of stars in the process. Only a moron could even begin to think the universe could give fucking shit about us or anyone and anything else. But then I suppose I've just indulged in a tautology really. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:36, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
Yes , but what makes it insipid is that he tries to shift the burden on atheists to why there is "evil in the universe" by making the claim, without backing it up, that atheism asserts that the universe in itself is somehow "fundamentally good". Maybe there are a few atheists who say this, but no one I am aware of and it isn't a belief that's remotely common to atheism or secularism. I for one would state that the universe is fundamentally indifferent.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 22:35, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

That would work too. Just there is no reason for non-theists to think there is some sort of "fundamental goodness" to the universe, and he is just trying to shift the burden as the question is normally a problem for theists since almost all claim their diety(s) are "good".--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:56, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

My recent concern with the relationship between atheism and cosmodicy comes from this article in the New Yorker, Is That All There Is?: Secularism and its discontents., James Wood, August 15, 2011, which I have to thank AD for bringing to my attention. Maybe you are right, that many atheists never ponder the question "Is it worth it all? Would it have been better if the universe had never existed?" — but as the beginning of that article makes clear, at least some do, and maybe more than you think. Now, as someone who has always been a fervid fan of Nietzsche, the concept was immediately familiar to me — but, seeing this commonality between that New Yorker article, and the works of Nietzsche, made me think, there must be a term for this — so I coined cosmodicy on analogy of theodicy, but was pleasantly surprised to discover the word already existed, with roughly the definition I intended — I suppose it is an obvious coinage. I was even more pleasantly surprised to find one philosopher (Mark Balto) had already linked the term to Nietzsche; and that some theological papers on the topic (e.g. J Matthew Ashley) had stated quite well my own insights into the relationship between atheism and cosmodicy—even though Ashley doesn't explicitly frame the issue as one of atheism, it seems to me the worldview he is addressing is the post-theological one of materialist atheism. (((Zack Martin))) 02:22, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

It is the assumption that it is a problem within atheism, it isn't though. There is no reason to think the universe, an entity with no conscious or self-awareness is "fundamentally good". The universe is indifferent to our plight, it is indifferent to the fact people do evil things, that horrible stuff happens to us; because as Khan put it very well, the universe just is. No, the problem of evil is a theistic one, theists claim their deities are good, often the pure, absolute, all-powerful standard of good, yet these same god(s) allow evil to happen, and appear completely indifferent to the plight of people. It is as if they don't exist. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 03:56, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Well, to quote James Wood's article: I have a friend, an analytic philosopher and convinced atheist, who told me that she sometimes wakes in the middle of the night, anxiously turning over a series of ultimate questions: “How can it be that this world is the result of an accidental big bang? How could there be no design, no metaphysical purpose? Can it be that every life—beginning with my own, my husband’s, my child’s, and spreading outward—is cosmically irrelevant?” In the current intellectual climate, atheists are not supposed to have such thoughts. We are locked into our rival certainties—religiosity on one side, secularism on the other—and to confess to weakness on this order is like a registered Democrat wondering if she is really a Republican, or vice versa.

What bollocks you talk maratrean. You really do live in a completely different reality don't you and it's completely imaginary? Today I intend to go fly a private aircraft, then I may go out on the motorcycle and after that I will probably either continue trying to learn to play the piano, go to the pub (and drink less than yesterdsay don't worry my dear 'god' brxbrx) or do something else. At some stage I MAY check cp to see what is the latest drivel that ken has shat over there. What will kenny boy do except obsessively edit the same articles hundreds of times in a backwater blog on the internet in an effort to send message to RW editors? Obsessed? You have no f'in idea do you. Oldusgitus (talk) 10:08, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Maratrean is just trolling. ignore him. Aceace 09:58, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

He seems touchingly protective of Ken. Maybe he knows something about Ken's virginity that we don't? --Longbow (talk) 10:01, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Trolling is what you call anyone willing to call out this site for what it is... anyone who dares to disagree with the groupthink... like the "trolls" who said the Emperor was wearing no clothes... (((Zack Martin))) 10:13, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't agree with Maratrean's accusation of RW being obsessed with Ken. But I do think that too much attention is being spent on him.
Some of us obviously think it's amusing to taunt him, to get him react in so many contradictory ways, to goad him into posting ever more ridiculous nonsense on CP, to big-up his imaginary standing on the internet, to mock his writing style....
It's essentially defending against his and by extension CP's idiocy by using mockery. Perfectly valid tactic. Claims about his virginity, while childish, are simply a WTF? reaction to seeing him edit CP obsessively with little more than rest breaks day after day after day. And if it's Ken who's producing the most crazy on CP at the moment, then it's Ken who's going to get most of the attention on WIGO.
However, it is obvious that Ken must be afflicted in some way. I don't mean that cruelly or in any way ad hom. But the evidence (such as it is from a looking at postings on a website) is pretty compelling. His affliction may be anything from being ill to being a few sandwiches short of a picnic to having a tenuous grip on reality to having an extremely over-inflated sense of his own status. Or all of the above.
In any case, I for one am uncomfortable with the more vicious mockery directed Ken's way. Even if he himself is often pretty nasty (and incidentally un-Christian as I understand it) in his criticisms of atheists, liberals, fat people, homosexuals and "evolutionists".
Stooping to his level is not big and it's not clever. Ajkgordon (talk) 10:35, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Ken seeks negative attention (just like Maratrean). It amuses some people to give it to him (just like with Maratrean). All parties seem to be getting what they want out of the exchange. Ho hum. Godspeed (talk) 12:22, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
I don't want negative attention. I want people to realise their mistakes — or at least respond with some serious rational argument, which is something they are generally not very good at. (((Zack Martin))) 12:27, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
So, let me get this straight, pimping a made-up religion featuring a giant bat at a website where atheism (or at least rationalism) is the predominant religious viewpoint is part of a grand scheme to make people realize their mistakes? It's not just simply inviting mockery? You honestly expected people here to engage seriously with "Maratreanism"? Godspeed (talk) 12:45, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Yes, because they claim to be rational, and if you are really rational, you will take all ideas seriously — you will evaluate ideas and arguments in detail before dismissing them, and always be open to new lines of argument, which you had not considered before, which might prove you wrong. That does not describe many editors of this site, however — many seem to adhere to the kind of doctrinaire atheism which isn't interested in rational argument or debate with the religious, just ridicule. Their claims of rational superiority are just empty posturing, for they talk the talk but will not walk the walk. (((Zack Martin))) 12:48, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
BTW, the giant bat was always a nursery rhyme style tale, like "Humpty Dumpty", not a doctrine of my religion (these were but tales which he told for the amusement of children, to quote the very first version of the relevant article on my wiki). It is only people here who have distorted it into being something else. (((Zack Martin))) 12:55, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Has it occurred to you that everyone has evaluated your "religion" - this takes about ten seconds - and dismissed it as attention-seeking made-up bullshit? --Longbow (talk) 12:52, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
If all the time you've spent on evaluating it is ten seconds, then you haven't seriously evaluated it. (((Zack Martin))) 12:53, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
What is there to evaluate? It's a religion that you made up. Ten seconds is being generous. --Longbow (talk) 12:55, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Well, you could try reading some of my essays, and engage with the arguments therein. (((Zack Martin))) 12:57, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Essays about stuff you made up? Why bother? Maratreanism is not a real religion and isn't worth wasting time on. --Longbow (talk) 12:58, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Nobody has time to evaluate every idea with the sort of thoroughness you expect to be accorded your religion. It is impractical and unrealistic to expect Maratreanism to be somehow elevated in stature above any other crackpot idea. Ideas that have a much longer history (such as homeopathy) or ideas that are perhaps based upon previously accepted ideas and engrained into society (such as Christianity), are rationally dealt with here.
Your religion is built on a premise that almost everyone here rejects with good reason. The rest of the contents of your essays are irrelevant. That you disagree is also irrelevant.
Just because your precious invented religion is mocked and ridiculed says nothing about the rationality of this site. Perhaps in another universe... Ajkgordon (talk) 13:43, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
I find it sort of interesting that Maratrean is calling for an end to the persecution of poor Ken...when that would be quite possibly the worst punishment anyone could inflict on him. Seriously, Maratrean: take a good, long look at Ken's behavior. He doesn't suffer from the attention; he LIVES for it. Given the sheer amount of time he spends on edits which boil down to "Look at me, Rationalwiki! I'm saying things to make you mad! Ole! Ole! Ole!" I don't think it's stretching too far to say that it's the main source of pleasure in his life. And, yes, I think that's extremely sad, and, yes, I think Ken has serious, serious issues, which is why I generally don't respond to the guy, here or on Conservapedia.
But let's not pretend that he's suffering from all this "persecution." It's quite possibly the only attention he gets. --Phentari (talk) 17:46, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Actually as a stub, it's pretty accurate.
If you agree that militaristic fascism is "quintessentially conservative", and that the film was intentionally a parody of the book. Ajkgordon (talk) 23:10, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Possibly an admission of parody or a lame attempt at a joke - particularly the use of the word "quintessentially", no one uses quintessentially seriously. It just doesn't happen. IIRC, the book is actually more open about the government being incredibly fascist and the film tries to keep the whole Nazi vibe quite muted by comparison. So we assume either he isn't aware of this (plausible), or is aware of it and using it as parody/satire (also plausible). ADK...I'll riot your gelato! 01:39, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
I happen to have recently re-read the book, I don't think their government really is incredibly fascist. It's no liberal utopia of course, and fear of communism runs through everything - but do you even remember the name of the glorious leader? There should be a glorious leader in a fascist regime, and the world of Starship Troopers instead talks about people grokking the importance of voting if they've seen military service. No point voting in a fascist country, you can't vote for anybody except the fascists. Some critics say that with the franchise restricted to ex-servicemen there is no reason for them ever to let anyone else vote so it's fascist for that reason. But this thinking would apply just as well, over the past few centuries of US history, to the poor, women, young adults, and blacks. If Rico wants to vote for people who will relax the restrictions on the franchise, it appears he is free both to do so and to advocate that others do too.
If you're a roleplayer and like the imagery (power suits, bug-eyed monsters, spaceships) of Starship Troopers, I categorically recommend Greg Hutton's game "3:16 Carnage Among The Stars". You can have fun splattering green-blooded reptoids... or fragging a disliked colleague, but then slowly you have to face up to the big picture: Why the hell are you out here, doing this? The answers are not pleasant. (talk) 09:31, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Speaking of Ed, he's having a real hard time at Ameriwiki. Everyone there seems to be against him, even George. In fact, George told Ed to submit a writing plan.

That's absolutely great. I love Starship Troopers. To be honest, I'm not sure why Ed wasn't more focused on the co-ed showers. It's also really amazing that he actually understood the movie. If a viewer wanted to, it's possible to take the movie seriously, as a conservative pro-war movie. I've read the book, although it didn't stick with me very well. It seemed unusually dry, and overly focused on the wrong aspects. -Lardashe

Nothing sums up CP's paranoia better: suck up to Andy and agree with everything he does = parodist; criticise Andy and CP = troll. No wonder they have no serious editors yet. As for Ken's plan, I don't think there is one per se. I just think that after all the years of being ignored - hell he wasn't even in the SDG and they used to bitch about him there and they used to ignore him in TZB - he's suddenly realised he has a modicum of Teh Powahz and, in true CP sysop style, it's gone straight to his head.

You know I've been thinking this morning and I can easily see this being the start of an attempted putsch by ken. We know he thinks andy is easily led by parodists and we know he thinks his drivvle brings page views in, which I guess in his mind equates to having influence within the conservative movement. It would only be a small step for him to decide the project would be better off without andy at all and from there to open rebellion against andy's rule. Go ken, go.

Of course there will be no active takeover. Not only would that be close to impossible, it would also be stupid. Right now is the perfect state for Ken: No responsibilities, absolute power, and a free platform to host his insanity on.

Heh, apparently 20 minutes after he posted that "news" he actually read the articleimg. So now we have another rehearsal of Andy's more general complaint against the Nobel prize, that it isn't given to him due to prejudice against creationism.

Virtually no one takes his side on this "issue". Of all the sysops, none voice any support of Andy's insistence that Relativity is wrong; it could very be they all disagree with him on this one issue but as Andy is Il Duce of Conservapedia, none are willing to directly challenge him on it. This leaves it up to Roger, who due to being Andy's sibling, is tolerated by Andy and quite possibly seen as "untouchable" by the other sysops (what noble wants to kill the brother of the king).
I believe that Andy's lone assistance that Relativity is dead wrong with logic such as this:
"Virtually no one who is taught and believes Relativity continues to read the Bible, a book that outsells New York Times bestsellers by a hundred-fold."
Where he has no evidence of whatsoever, weakens CP even more than Ken's crazy Bestiality spree, or his bizarre "atheists are fat, hur" binge.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:36, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
Not just Andy, they all avoid stepping on each other's crazy toes. Ken's essays, Ed's movie-blogging, Karajou's bird-spamming, Terry's link-whoring, JPatt's idiotic rants...none of these ever get called out by a fellow sysop, despite the extremely low likelihood that anyone besides the principal author will mistake them for quality contributions.

Atheists and charity[edit]

It's mighty funny that Conservative likes to talk about how uncharitable Atheists are. His favorite atheist, Peter Singer, is well-known for his extraordinary stand on so-called foreign aid charities. For Singer, it is simply wrong to live a life of relative luxury when we could do with less and save some of the lives of those who are starving, dying of curable disease, etc. (I say so-called charity, because giving to these organizations is not charity on Singer's view, but rather a duty it is wrong not to do.) So, here we have an atheist with principles so stark that almost no living person (Christian or otherwise) fulfills his duty of helping his fellow man, a much more demanding moral duty than one can easily find in the Bible (I think).

Somehow, I doubt that Conservative will mention Singer's views on "charitable" donations. Better to talk about bestiality.

For the record, I have no idea whether Singer is an exemplar of his own moral judgments. I don't know anything about his personal life, nor is it relevant to understanding his arguments about what moral duty requires. Phiwum (talk) 01:56, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

I always explain the fact the atheists "don't do" as much crap as the christians in the fact that the christians already have. "The Christians built a hospital in X location? Wonderful! What, im terrible for not building one there? Why should I, they already built one, two would be redundant"--Mikalosa (talk) 02:01, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Of course you should build a hospital even when it's not needed. That's what 900-foot Jesus advises and it worked out just swell for Oral. Phiwum (talk) 02:03, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Anwar Al-awlaki[edit]

I dislike the wording of the WIGO. Jpatt has a point, his MPR doesn't show outrage. It clearly lists Al-awlaki as an Al-queida leader. I personally don't think he was super important as a planner and leader but more as a preacher. He was certainly a bad dude, but I'd rather bad dudes lived than we tore down our due process protections in order to turn them into dead bad dudes.

Not quite on topic but: I now live in a country where the use of military force to conduct the extrajudicial execution of a citizen while that citizen is in a country against which we have not declared war is the new normal.

Yeah, not sure what the beef here is. If it's hypocrisy, I guess a) clarify and b) link to where he was all for executing US citizens w/out due process. As it stands, this ought to horrify any Americans here as being at least as bad as any of Bush's offenses. (talk) 06:48, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
Agree with the BoN. This was not a cop shooting an armed suspect in a dark alley, or a soldier shooting an insurgent in battle, or an asshole becoming collateral damage in a legitimate military operation; this was an execution. Executing your own natural born citizens without trial, without even formal charges, without in fact any kind of judicial supervision at all? Wouldn't this have been considered murder just a few years ago, or at least unconstitutional? Didn't you hang a fairly large number of Germans and Japanese for shit like this? Much as I hate to say this, JPatt is right to be outraged because an outrage is what this is.

I have to be honest and say that I don't see a problem with it. Al Awlaki was an open member of al Qaeda, which has basically declared war on the USA. I don't see any need to waste money on a trial, which carries certain risks anyway. I know that US and European citizens caught fighting with the Taliban are generally shot on capture by ISAF, and this is just the same, only a bit more high profile. --Longbow (talk) 11:36, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
US and European citizens caught fighting with the Taliban are generally shot on capture by ISAF,[citation needed] Godspeed (talk) 12:16, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
If they surrender and are captured, then shooting them ("summary execution") is a war crime. However, given the marytrdom complex most of these people have, I doubt many of them would be willing surrender, they would rather die fighting, so they end up killed. But if they were to surrender, it would be a war crime to shoot them. (((Zack Martin))) 02:34, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Do I have a problem with the killing of US or British citizens who were captured fighting as Taliban in Afghanistan? Not at all. For the Brits at least, summary execution is the only way they CAN be executed. --Longbow (talk) 12:44, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
Not sure what this is supposed to mean. It's illegal for the British to execute someone. It's illegal the same on Sunday as on every other day of the week, and in a warzone the same as any other place. If you capture somebody, you can hold them as a POW, or you can try them as a criminal or you can let them go. Right now it may seem like you can be smug and say "Who's going to stop us?" but remember that's what a bunch of fine upstanding Germans said to themselves. They were hung, the modern International Court doesn't hang people, but it will lock them away and lose the key. (talk) 22:34, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
Actually if you capture one of your own nationals fighting with the enemy there's no requirement to treat him as a POW, and if you capture them in Afghanistan they obviously don't have any protection under their national law. Captured Afghan Taliban are insurgents and entitled to due process under Afghan law, but "foreign fighters" are essentially mercenaries and shooting them out of hand is not an issue. --Longbow (talk) 10:05, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
I gave you the three options. Inventing nice words for a fourth option doesn't make it legal. The same technique of making nice words for a fourth option works for everybody, which is why it's not allowed for anybody. We can be "foreign fighters" or "infidels" or "aliens" or "defilers", it doesn't matter what kind of gloss you put on it. Historically we've even tried declaring the enemy non-human. You say "obviously don't have any protection under their national law". But the treaties aren't written that way, not like the US constitution that lets men rot forever without trial so long as it's not on US soil. The British state can't execute people, whether it's in a prison block in England or on a battlefield in Afghanistan. It has renounced that power, just as it once renounced the power to enslave people. And because the state can't do it, it can't authorise its troops to do it either, any British soldier who executes a captured fighter, no matter their POW status, is breaking the law. (talk) 21:46, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

More to the point, British law is irrelevant here. Even if Parliament passed a law authorizing British soldiers to execute soldiers, that would still violate the Geneva conventions, to which Britain is a signatory. B♭maj7 (talk) Shut the fuck up, Maratrean 21:59, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

The Geneva Conventions only apply to legal combatants of the belligerent states and to non-combatants. Someone found in Kandahar with an AK and a British passport doesn't fit either category and is basically shit out of luck. And after JW Lindh's involvement in the Qal'i Jangi uprising, a US passport isn't going to impress ISAF much either. Look, it's really not hard: if you don't want to get shot, don't travel to Afghanistan and sign up with a bunch of murderous fanatical thugs. Simples. --Longbow (talk) 23:58, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
You're wrong on one point: England hasn't "renounced that power" - there's no way for an English parliament to do that. There's a long-standing principle of English law that "no parliament may bind its successors", which means that any law passed by one parliament may be undone by a later one. While there are a few cases where undoing previous laws would be problematic at best, the principle remains. Re-instating the death penalty doesn't even register on a "problematic" scale. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 21:52, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Er, except the UK would have to withdraw from the Council of Europe. Which would be problematic. Not impossible but very problematic. Ajkgordon (talk) 22:05, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, but which part of "no parliament may bind its successors" do you not understand? –SuspectedReplicant retire me 22:22, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
I understand all of it. Which bit of "problematic" do you not understand? To re-instate the death penalty, the UK would have to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights (which expressly forbids capital punishment even in war), which would mean leaving the Council of Europe, which would probably also mean leaving the EU. I only disagree with you saying that re-instating the death penalty would not be problematic. The rest, agreed. Ajkgordon (talk) 22:35, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Of course the death penalty isn't relevant to the shooting of UK or US nationals caught fighting with the Taliban, because that's not an execution. They're not entitled to POW status, troops don't have the power to arrest them for treason (or anything else) and clearly they can't be turned loose, so their deaths are effectively deaths in combat in the course of a war which they had no legal right to be fighting in anyway. The Taliban DO have a right to fight (as long as they obey the rules, which they don't) but disaffected scrotes from Washington, DC or Bradford DON'T, and there's no point in crying about it when they get shot. It isn't actually illegal to shoot them, so by default it's fine. --Longbow (talk) 23:50, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
No future binding is pure pragmatism. Binding a future parliament is futile, we can start over at any time and loose any bindings. But we don't, that's pragmatism again. As to Longbow, if I say "Shooting Longbow in the face and burning the corpse is legal" that doesn't make it legal, do you see how this works? (talk) 01:23, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
Obviously your definition of "problematic" differs from mine. Ajkgordon (talk) 18:21, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
It's all to do with context, isn't it? Shooting me in the face and burning my body would be perfectly legal if I was an illegal combatant fighting against my own country, but becomes murder if you do it in the street because my T-shirt offends you. Anyway, what's the big deal? They're only fucking jihadis anyway. --Longbow (talk) 18:25, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
OK, so the answer to my question is "No". As to "They're only fucking jihadis anyway" well I think you're illustrating my point. try that sentence again, "Longbow is only a fucking jihadi". Is it legal to kill you now? I've said (what you believe are) the magic words. (talk) 08:38, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
THIS. It is the hypocrisy of it all. We all know that if this was some conservative Republican administration, CP would be openly celebrating the death of this Al-Qaida operative. Their personal hatred for the current president is so deep that he can not possibly do anything right, even if its actions they would otherwise wholeheartedly endorse without reservation. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 21:00, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
It is really unfortunate that CP and conservatives in general discovered the concept of due process exactly the same moment they lost the Presidency. But it has to be admitted that (a) most conservatives aren't really so upset about this and there's not a general outcry, barring the small (but vocal) libertarian segment, and (b) the fact that this is suddenly a priority for them doesn't make it any less important on its own merits. The fact that the President can unilaterally declare a person an enemy combatant in a pseudowar, and then unilaterally have them killed without further process or habeas corpus, is a very bad thing. It is a gross extension of executive power, part of the creep that has been in action basically since the enactment of the Constitution. It is also extra-legal - there is no option of redress at any point. The lawsuit by this fellow's father, that sought to enjoin a writ of heabeas corpus, was simply dismissed as covered by national security secrecy.
Obama is a much more effective proponent of Bush-era national security policies. He is actually competent, and now the leadership and members of Al Q are falling all over the place. But his competence makes the policies no less reprehensible.--ADtalkModerator 23:26, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Personally, I'm surprised the headline wasn't "Obama murders young religious conservative leader." Stile4aly (talk) 23:50, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

From what I can determine, most conservatives supported this action; the one big exception is Ron Paul, but at least he is consistent in his views towards the War on Terror. CP's views did a 180, not because of some sudden realization after some deep introspection, but because the current occupant of the White House has a D after his name, and has the "Muslim name" of Obama; that is the only reason. Also we need to remember that Conservapedia does in no way, represent mainstream conservative political thought in America.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 00:57, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

I had to use a proxy, too, because my location came under attack after criticizing User:Conservative.

But no one a CP knows how to read Checkuser properly, and they're not even aware innocent users have been blocked over the years because of Karajou's vendatta against a handful of users. Now, if Karajou actually created content that brought in traffic, as User:Conservative does, it would make sense to keep him around. But all he does is block thousands, if not millions, of innocent users, thinking he's protecting Andy's project. Interesting how 1014 users have been active the past 90 days, while 1500 individual blocks were handed out. nobsEmpty Recycle Bin 18:50, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Same way TK did, I guess. He's got Andy convinced that all these people he's blocking are actively trying to harm the project. Either that or Andy just plain doesn't notice all the blocking (or is actively ignoring it). I don't think Andy actually cares much one way or the other about the "wiki" side of the project, he just expects it to carry on without him, so he leaves the management of that side up to other people (he probably thinks Ed is in charge of it). Andy himself just uses CP as his own blog, and he's obviously, blatantly not interested in debating his points, so seeing Karajou banning people who dare to ask him (Andy) questions is pleasing for him. As for the rest of the blocks, he just assumes other people know what's going on and can't/won't publicly disagree with them for reasons that have been rehearsed a lot on this board.

Ken doesn't care[edit]

What a delight it is to watch Ken basicly take a shit on any possible positive reputation he might have:

User: I would like to add to this article (Atheism and charity) and look, I have brought with me some sources. Could somebody unlock the page please?img

Ken: Yeah, I don't think Bill Gates and his wife are atheists, actually his wife is a Christian, right?img

User: Yeah, you are right about that. How about the other stuff?img

Ken: *rave about atheism* Anyway, either you provide sources that go along with my bias and what I want the article to say or you won't be allowed to edit it.img

Ok. So I was mildly offended with the whole Atheism and obesity stuff, simply because the logic was absurd — generally it was more facepalming than anything else. With the Atheism and bestiality stuff I thought he is really going off the rails there and now really nobody will take him seriously anymore. But now, that he openly admits to a heavy bias, lying about and rejection of facts and censorship, I simply feel offended as human being. The worst thing is, I actually would buy the idea that he is so far removed from reality, honesty and common sense that he believes to be, ehm, within the realm of all that.

This is pretty much one of those times where I wish I would belief in a god so I could pray that this guy is just a parodist and not really a human being. --ʤɱ digital native 07:51, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

I might be struck down for saying this, but a normal person might agree with Ken's primary claim. This article is about comparisons of per capita giving and the existence of "atheist charities" really is more or less irrelevant. So, Ken's admonition to keep the focus on the point of the article really makes certain sense.
Or it would, anyway, if this weren't said by User:Conservative, who has never worried about article focus before. The man discusses UFOs in an article on atheism and obesity, for Christ's sake. He adds the whole contents of every tangentially related article to each article he writes. Complaining that others should keep focused when they want to add information that conflicts with Ken's overarching point (which is "Atheists BAD") is, of course, obviously hypocritical. Phiwum (talk) 10:56, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
I think Ken's lack of focus has to do with his fixation on SEO. He seems to think that if he crams EVERY article with EVERY random thought he has, sooner or later Google will wake up the fact that 1000s of articles are talking about atheism, bestiality and UFOs and he'll rocket up to first place on a search engine beginning with G. If we aren't there already, we're heading towards a state when Ken will create 100s of identical Atheism/Bestiality/Dawkins/Evolution/Sweden/Gay Bowel Disease articles, just with different names. And then atheism will be dead on the internet. --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 11:34, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
And he would be right if the article title was "Atheism and uncharitability", but it's "Atheism and charity". Instead of making an article that merely states facts and has the normal bias of a conservative writting it, we get this pithy little line: "If you could provide more data showing that atheists give less to charity per capita in various countries populations compared to the Christians in those countries that would be greatly appreciated and I am guessing that will be the case for every country you do research on." We all know what the "I'm guessing" part means here: "You better not make an argument that goes otherwise". Of course the sources are themself not noteworthy, but instead of asking for better data (comparison of numbers of organizations) he asks for the data he would like.
The article is completely onesided. An article named "Atheism and charity" should cover much more ground: Real statistics and how a high atheist population in a country change the country in terms of social welfare (Scandinavia anyone?). Famous or influential atheists on this matter and reasons why Atheists give less, for example because — and let's not kid ourselves here — most atheists are more left-wing than right-wing they don't try to keep the corpse alive with blood transfusions but try to change the fundamentals of the system and therefor are trying to fix the problem in the long run. But instead of anything that would constitute a good article we get a sentence full of stuff that has been refuted a thousand times: "Given that atheistic evolutionary thinking has engendered social darwinism and given that the proponents of atheism have no rational basis for morality in their ideology, the immoral views that atheists often hold and the low per capita giving of American atheists is not unpredictable." and a heart-warming "I'm going to manipulate you right now" picture of a girl begging taken in one of the poorest and most religious countries on earth.

Ehm... that comes out badly, but is recurring them in left-wing thought. Also "natural" might be the wrong word, they are trying, just in a different way (state welfare instead of charity). And to a degree it makes sense, because if the people don't suffer from an ill system, then they will think the system actually works.

This new Kara x Ken pairing is pretty mind-boggling. Kara has had nothing good to say about Ken ever, even buying into the thought that Ken is the "notorious internet troll, kdbuffalo." I can only think, now that Ken is trolling his nipples off and Karajerk is defending him, is that Kara thinks it more important for CP to portray a "united front" than have shit smeared all over it. I did try and ask him nicely, but all I got in return was, "Gaarr!! Proven liar! Argh! Argleblarge!

A marvelous September 2011[edit]


With more than 15,000 revisions* (some 13,400 edits** still visible), Conservapedia has seen the busiest month since Feb 2008!

Andy Schlafly was particularly impressive: his number of more than 1,900 revisions is the second best in his record, only surpassed by more than 2,000 edits in July 2007.

So why wasn't mainpageleft all over this? No number of new records? Not even the numbers of edits and page-views are updated...

And one didn't get the feeling that Andy was very present at his blog, monitoring any detail and contributing to every debate.


So, what happened? September 2011 was a spring for vandals. 2,500 of the 15,000 revisions were actually reverts, so that less than 10,000 real edits were made. Andy personally reverted more than 1,300 entries. His remaining 600 edits were mostly spent on his World History Project. That's why the presence of the leader felt like absence...

On a (somewhat) more positive note: Conservative is now able to use revision revert instead of the preview button. That is slightly less intrusive than deleting whole pages, and the percentage of deleted revisions dropped to 10% for Sep 2011 (so far), but it is still fricking madness! (Andy, please, please, make him a bureaucrat: remember, CP is a meritocracy, expertise doesn't play a role...)

*,**: generally, I try to use revision for any entry made to Conservapedia and edit for the still accessible (i.e. not deleted) revisions.

The end of CP?[edit]

Do you know, I think I actually feel sorry for Andy. He had a nice idea for teaching his home-skoolers some useful computing skills and learning all sorts of stuff, and had the Schlafly family money to put it into action. And he's ruined the whole thing through his total lack of leadership skill as well as complete stupidities like the Conservative Bible Project, to the point where the whole thing has become a blog for one complete weirdo with nothing constructive to say. If I were Andy now, I'd take a deep breath, re-launch CP as an encyclopedia written largely by and for his home-skoolers, forget the fuckwittage like CPB, tell Conservative, Karajou, Jpatt and their ilk to get lost until they've rediscovered their manners, tell people like us that we're welcome to comment (politely and factually) on talk pages but please would we leave mainpages alone unless we're going to be genuinely helpful, and invite conservative educators and academics to contribute to articles in home-skooler-friendly language.

No. Ajkgordon (talk) 21:54, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, if I were the sort of guy who used those animated emoticon thingies I'd have the one keeled over bawling with laughter at the prospect of Andy realizing and admitting a mistake. (Instead, for some reason, I'm the sort of guy who describes emoticons instead of using them.) DickTurpis (talk) 21:58, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
All CP did was push me even further away from EVER joining the conservative movement. So, I hope he never realizes and admits his mistake and keeps CP up forever. Senator Harrison (talk) 22:26, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Oh. Now I remember. Lenski. AJKG is right: the answer to the questions in my last two postings is 'no'. The Real James Brown (talk) 22:40, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
I know what you mean about feeling sorry for him. As soon as he decided it was going to be a conservative replacement for wikipedia, that's the very second it came apart. Just having a wiki for homskollars to mess around in is a laudable project that could have prospered, despite Andy's complete lack of talent for teaching. Building an online encyclopaedia for wingnuts, well that was a predictable failure. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:40, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
It WASNT for wingnuts though. thats just how it ended up being BECAUSE of andys major personality flaws--Mikalosa (talk) 23:43, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Conservapedia isn't going anywhere anytime soon. As long as Andy is willing to pay for the server costs each and every month, the site will stay, and Andy's can easily afford it. I did seriously consider giving the place a second short during Rob's short lived Perestroika on CP (including, to Rob's credit, ending my banishment). Once the hard-liners decided reform would open them to accountability and deposed Rob, I wasn't sure if I would give the place a shot again. What really sealed it for me is Ken's Bestiality spree; who in their right mind wants to be associated with that?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:58, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Who in his NON-right mind wants to be associated with that? How many editors has Ken driven away? And some of them had been there for years, faithfully backing Andy's every lunatic project. --Phentari (talk) 00:13, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

How about this then?

In the not-too-distant future, night mode is enacted permanently under the weight of incessiant wandalism - no new members from this point. Some time after this, Ken succeeds in driving off everyone - including Karajou, who does a rob - except Andy Schlafly (obviously). Around this point five-year blocks begin to expire and Andy, who is rapidly losing interest in the site, panics and ensures (by some method) that nobody except him can edit. Ken, now locked out, petitions him by email - Andy does not reply. Andy only returns to the site to update MPR, and after no more than a year even that ceases. By this point, WIGO:CP is as busy as WIGO:CZ.

Or has somebody already guessed that? Peter talk, or type, or whatever... 03:51, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

At the moment, Conservapedia is Andy's only claim to fame: Andrew Schlafly, founder and leader of Conservapedia So he will keep it going until he gets another gig: making an utter fool out of himself (and his tea-partying friends) in various court-rooms springs to mind. Then (only my prophecy) he will make a Sanger (i.e., abandon his project without leaving adequate financial resources behind), stating that he - sadly - hasn't enough time for this valuable project left.

  • I'm glad that there enough of us so that not everyoneespecially not me :-) has to occupy him/herself with our current concern-trolls :-) I don't envy the moderators who have to actually read the comments I'm just skimming...
  • Conservapedia is getting boring - at least for me (I'm not in into bestiality.) So, perhaps RW becoming even more omphaloskeptical is an answer to that: Citizendium just hasn't the stamina to replace CP in the long run...
  • but rejoice: someone will always be wrong on the Internet...

One of the few times I've actually lol'd out loud/more Bestiality[edit]

Opening line: Washington state has the highest bestiality rates while only being the 13th highest population in the USimg oh ken. Then the only content is some poll that said "it has the second highest rate of non-religious people", and therefor, it MUST love bestiality. --Mikalosa (talk) 03:26, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Laughed out loud? I don't exactly ever use it in a past tense that often.--Mikalosa (talk) 03:38, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
And if you look at the data he cites, its five whole cases. Given that Washington has 6.7 million people, that is hardly an epidemic, and it be hard to correlate such a low number to either Washington's high secular population or its theistic majority. I will even wager the majority, if not all, of those cases where by people who profess some level of theism of not Christian theism just based on Washington's 73% professed theist population if we make connections using Ken's research "methods".--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 04:23, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
"the highest bestiality rates while only being the 13th highest population" Reminds me of this: Fuzzy math: O'Reilly says higher Canadian life expectancy is "to be expected" because "we have 10 times as many people". O'Reilly: "That translates to 10 times as many accidents, crimes, down the line". Fuckin' rates, how do they work?
Also, as has been pointed out here before, many states don't have laws against bestiality so absolutely silly to compare every state based on bestiality convictions. --Night Jaguar (talk) 09:00, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

I think Conservative is right that, using the data set he points to, Washington appears to have both the highest overall, and the highest per capita, rate of bestiality in the US. But I agree with Night Jaguar, just because there are more reports of bestiality in Washington, doesn't necessarily mean it is really more common there — it could well be that it is most reported in Washington, but no more common there than elsewhere. And his attempts to link the rates of bestiality in Washington, to its religious or political makeup, strike me as rather silly — while I do think that liberals and/or atheists are more likely, as an abstract matter, to reject the idea that bestiality is immoral, I do not think that significantly translates into an increased tendency to actually engage in the practice. Oh, and BTW, people who think I agree with everything Conservative says, it should be clear from this comment I don't — I just believe in treating him fairly, and I don't start out by assuming everything he says is nonsense — I read his work with an open mind.

Maratrean, I don't think anyone is arguing that Ken's numbers are wrong in this case, just that they are utterly meaningless. You can come up with any sort of numbers to try to prove anything you want. East Fuckleton has the third highest rates of vodka eyeballing even though it is 39th in population but ranks third in consumption of wasabi mustard, therefore eating wasabi mustard leads to people putting vodka in their eyes. It makes no sense, and in this case all reported cases of bestiality are so few as to be statistically meaningless. DickTurpis (talk) 12:18, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
First off you are taking the dribbling of man who's "research" would be rejected with an F if done for a High School paper, let alone university or pray tell actual professional level. No one takes his stuff seriously except perhaps his buddy Shock. It he post this anywhere but Conservapedia, it would be rejected outright for what it is, stringing together misinterpreted factoids to make an erroneous conclusion simply based on the fact he hates and wishes to maline a certain group of people (atheists).
Its only accepted on Conservapedia for the most selfish and cynical of reasons. Andy allows it only for the pageviews, which to him is everything, plus immense ego never allows him to admit a mistake. Karajou defends it only to protect his own position and powerbase. Ed ignores it or will only criticize without naming names because he doesn't want to be the next Rob. Terry ignores everything that doesn't bring revenue to his personal blog or involves his worship of Ayn Rand. JPatt just pretends it isn't there and focuses on his conspiracies.
Look at the facts and look at his conclusion. Washington has five reported cases of Bestiality, a number so small it likely doesn't say anything other than Washington's police are lucky or that more people are willing to call the authorities. Washington has 6,744,496 people (estimate), 74.3% which are adults (or 5,011,161 people), meaning from the numbers that is less than one out of a million adults (less than that as only 3 were convicted)[2] Washington has a 25% population that claims to have "no religion"[3], which is far from saying they are atheists or even non-theistic. This means 75% are theists of some organized religion, thus based on that percentage alone, one can make the claim that the chance of anyone convicted of this crime in Washington has a 3 to 1 shot of being a theist belonging to a particular faith (Biased? Sure, but no more than Ken's own conclusions). Should we then make the conclusion that most people who doink animals are religious? We may as well, it certainly wouldn't be more of a stretch or poorly researched insinuation than what Ken is doing; I did put in as much effort as he after all, (the difference is I wouldn't claim this is nearly enough research, nor would I outright imply bestiality is tied to the overwhelming number of religious people in Washington, or anywhere else for that matter).--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:34, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Also, South Dakota seems to have the highest per capita bestiality rate, with approximately 1 per 814,000 compared to Washington's 1 per 1.3 million. South Dakota ranks #5 in states with fewest non-religious people, thereby proving beyond a doubt that Christians fuck animals. DickTurpis (talk) 13:02, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Does anyone else wonder why Ken isn't taking the bestiality project "full throttle"? Ken, you're so close to another viral clusterfuck. Don't stop. This could be huge. Occasionaluse (talk) 13:10, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

You would have to be a complete half-wit to read anything Conservative writes "with an open mind". Everything he has written for five years has been drivel, literally without exception, so no, I don't think I will treat it as if it merits impartial consideration.

You know, there were a couple times (literally 1 or 2) in which Ken was the voice of reason at CP. Yeah, it put us all in a collective state of shock, but it happened. I forget what it was.

I sometimes volunteer for the local Round Table's Christmas dinner delivery as the occasion doesn't mean anything to us and it's nice to see how much it does mean to the poorer and usually elderly residents of our local town. One house we visited called "Te Deum", was a skinny, shabby but clean, single old guy with furniture that my grandparents would have had back in the 40s, brown faded wallpaper and hand written bible verses hung all over the walls. I imagine Ken being like that except living in a more modern abode with internet access. I don't seen him as a closeted homosexual just as a sad single guy who is subconsciously envious of the sex that other guys are having (homo or hetero). As for stopping taking his meds, it's probably more a case of not always being able to afford them because he obviously has no real job.
