What on Earth is Karajou saying?[edit]

What is Kara saying hereimg? Is he suggesting that evolutionary theory has animals consciously designing their own offspring? Or am I missing something? (Which, I confess, is quite possible). --Horace (talk) 02:33, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Option 1 is incoherent but I think he's suggesting that these animals are intentionally taking advantage of their good camouflage, which is sort of interesting but irrelevant. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 02:52, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Working backwards, Option 2 is God so Option 1 has to be evolution. I guess that's his take on the theory of evolution, that "the animals involved knew exactly what they were doing." Whoover (talk) 03:04, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
He seemed to miss Option 3: animals that are able camouflage to their environment have an advantage and are more likely to survive and reproductive. They pass this characteristic to their offspring, with some variation. The better the camouflage the better the chances at surviving and reproducing. Thus we expect the camouflage to improve over generations. Not as simple as 'goddidit', but it has the advantage of being right. --Night Jaguar (talk) 03:50, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Pretty sure he's just going for the 'look at how perfectly designed the butterfly is for its environment therefore god' argument. I guess he's one of those people who thinks god made butterflies with fancy predator evasion camouflage to keep them alive without asking why a god that didn't want butterflies being eaten couldn't just figure out how to make predators not eat the butterflies in the first place. But it's not as if he's ever been cursed with an over-abundance of intelligence. Ego (talk) 07:19, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
It seems that Kara is going for Option 1 = intelligent design and Option 2 = creation. He handily ignores Option 3 = genes. No wonder this guy never mentions his navy rank, he probably thought his radar screen was a game of Pong. --PsyGremlinPraat! 08:03, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm still waiting to learn how lions and tigers survived on grass and leaves with those carnivorous teeth. Were they intelligently designed like that, or did they evolve after the fall? Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 08:13, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Could penguins fly when they all lived in the Garden of Eden? (I bet that's something creationists have debated in the past). Spud (talk) 09:08, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Don't be silly. Everybody knows penguins are from the cormorant baramin, who drifted to the Antarctic on mats of vegetation after the Flood. The vast amount of radiation they were exposed to, due to the magnitude 12 earthquakes, which shot water onto Mercury, mutated them into penguins, and also cut their lifespans from 900 years to a few years. Deny this and lose all credibility. --PsyGremlinSprich! 14:19, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Wow, that was so stupid I assumed it was Ken. This false dilemma is responsible for a great deal of religious belief, and it is probably their best bet to getting more converts. Get them while they're uneducated and hope they stay that way. Occasionaluse (talk) 14:51, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Won't be asked to follow KJ's link, but a butterfly with the appearance of a snake's head is a clear example of Batesian mimicryWikipedia. A more commonly seen example is the way hoverflies (Syrphidae) have yellow stripes on their abdomens, easily mistaken at a quick glance for a hornet or bee. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 16:52, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Conservative drift...[edit]

... or "Sanity didn't leave the GOP, the GOP left sanity."

Apparently even Antonin fucking Scaliaimg fails the purity test these days. It's like they never, ever want to be elected again. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 05:02, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

I gotta tell my buddy, who's the Chicago Tribune's only guy on Mayor Emanuel 24/7, to run for fucking governor. Liberal media! That will totally bump up the quality of our cookouts and shit. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 05:34, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
How can anybody claim that about Scalia with a straight face? What kind of rabid wingnut would be suitable? Would even Roy Moore pass the purity test? rpeh •TCE 08:01, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Reagan? Nowait, he did a gun control bill once.
What I love about these lunatics is how they seem to be under the impression that their conservative party of choice loses to the more liberal party because they aren't conservative enough. No idea how that works, mind. I mean, the whole reason the really conservative people are never going to get into power, at least on a national level, is because they have to get past the primaries first, and as I understand it that's everyone's opportunity to, if they're pining for the party in question, say who they want in, but it's also the other party's supporters' second choice. Last year, it was a case of the Democratic voters going "OK, out of these four frothing mouthed morons, which will be the smallest disaster?" "True conservatives" just won't get past the primaries.
Or maybe I've misunderstood completely. I don't know. --جئت ورأيت أنا القرف gross, isn't it? 08:50, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
I think there's a grandfather clause in the Official Republican Purity Test that allows Reagan to forever be declared a True Conservative, despite having raised taxes, supported gun control, and passing amnesty for illegal aliens. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 11:50, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
During the last GOP presidential primary campaign, I opined that "Any candidate capable of winning the GOP primary is, ipso facto, incapable of winning the General." I see nothing to disabuse me of that opinion. rpeh •TCE 09:18, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

It seems the "lieberal" media just gave Andy more Tebow white knighting material.[edit]

Andy is most likely going to enjoy this "liberal news gaffe" and knowing him, will probably use it as conclusive evidence his crush hero is a victim of librul liars. Arcane (talk) 07:32, 30 January 2013 (UTC)Arcane

I notice Andy has totally forgotten that other persecuted greatest conservative sports star - Jeremy Lin. I'm guessing that once Tebow doesn't get a contract anywhere next season, that'll be the last we of him from Andy. --PsyGremlinSprich! 07:55, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Such an innocuous conversation. Hard to take anything out of it really. Not to say that Andy won't. --DamoHi 11:15, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
It is a completely innocuous conversation. It is no different then what fans or sports commentators talk about all the time, yet this is somehow a gaff?
Andy at the moment is too busy singing the praises of the Christian virtue of Randy Mossimg. Sorry Andy, Randy Moss didn't lead the 49ers to the Superbowl - 434 yards and three touchdowns (and one fumble) for the season is contributing, but it definitely not leading; stop talking about things you don't actually understand. Yet again, that means Andy wouldn't really get to talk about anything. Why do JPatt and the others worship this man?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:30, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Andy is also hosting the platform they use to spread their mental droppings around the place, or at least, Andy's hosting a linkfarm that occasionally gets "trimmed for grammar". One does not bite the hand that feeds them. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 14:02, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
"bite the hand that feeds them"; nah, morelike parasites not killing the host which supports them. Redchuck.gif ГенгисmutatingModerator 20:06, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Emk again[edit]

(Bill & Ted reference happens. *air guitar*) So only "liberal, second-tier colleges" claim e=mc2 is used for anything. Of course, by Andy's definition ALL colleges, including those his mommy paid for him to attend are "liberal, second-tier colleges." At least Andy isn't too far from Big Brother Roger on this - he's also down on relativity IIRC and called Einstein a "poster boy for relativity" or something. There really is nothing too dumb for Andy to say to back up his position.

Maybe we can convince Andy to submit a paper to PNAS, proving that relativity is wrong. He seems to have all the proof. Oh, wait, evil peer reviewers... --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 12:28, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

What I love about that article is how it opens with Andy's dribbling insanity, then goes on to provide examples of how it can be deduced. --PsyGremlinSermā! 12:31, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
It's the way that whenever he says anything about the equation he proves he doesn't understand it. The comment about eating a pound of cake not causing an energy increase of c2 is beyond brilliant. rpeh •TCE 12:40, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
When AugustO cited UPitt's very well respected History and Philosophy of Science department and their discussion of liberal claptrap E=mc^2, Andy dismissed itimg and referred to UPitt as a liberal, second-tier college.
Now, I don't know what schools he likes, but I decided to google Oral Roberts University (a school opened by a televangelist in my home state) to see their treatment of relativity. Not surprisingly, they have no problem with it. A physics syllabus includes a discussion of relativity, and a quick glance at the required textbook (at Amazon or Google) shows a perfectly traditional treatment. In fact, an ORU grad has a book trying to show how modern physics is compatible with the Bible. And the author must know physics, because he, like Andy, is an attorney.
I imagine that one can find similar results at other evangelical Christian schools.
Though, to be fair, ORU may be a little special. A couple decades ago, I visited the campus and found a small textbook devoted to discussing the cognitive dissonance in evolution and creationism. It seemed, from a brief glance, that ORU (which included a medical school) taught traditional biology, despite their more or less literal biblical interpretation -- at the same visit, I went to their "Walk through the Old Testament" exhibit which recreated Edenic scences, the deluge, etc. Phiwum (talk) 12:56, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
How did I overlook that section above? I don't think it was there when I sat down to write this. Phiwum (talk) 12:57, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
It's cool; I just combined the two sections.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:37, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
This relativity thing is one of his more bizarre behaviours, in my opinion, since he's literally the only person in the world I've ever seen make these claims. Is there anyone else who says the same thing about relativity? Not just random crazy timecube-type people, but a person who takes a moral stance against it for whatever reason? X Stickman (talk) 19:04, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
There are the folks who dismissed it as "Jewish Science," right? Edit: with a few tweaks, this opening pgph could be made to fit Andy's position Theory of Practice "...and we do love you madly." 19:06, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Roger Schlafly's How Einstein Ruined Physics is beloved of antisemitic observers. He avoids dirtying himself, but a google search on the title shows how loud the dog whistle is. Whoover (talk) 19:59, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
The saddest part is the pair them doubtless consider themselves wonderfully open-minded and independent thinkers for daring to question Einsteinian dogma. Even a blockheaded contrarian you can grudgingly respect if they know what they're talking about, those two are just idiots who think they're smarter than every working scientist for the last three quarters of century.--JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:33, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

<-- There are important differences between Roger and Andy:

  • Roger thinks that the theory of relativity is true. But he don't think that it has anything to do with Einstein, but was developed by others: Poincare, Planck, etc.
  • Andrew thinks that the whole theory is nonsense - and therefore was developed by Einstein.

So many errors in one little sentence.[edit]

CP still has only a one-sentence entryimg for Newtown, CT, and it's a doozy.

Nwtown, Connecticut, is a wealthy small town that was the location of a massacre by a video game player of 26 people, 18 of them young children, at a public elementary school.

There's the weird dangling modifier ("a video game player of 26 people"), the fascination with the only salient detail (Lanza played video games, at least according to Andy) and finally the fact that he reports the wrong number of children killed (twenty, according to every account I've seen).

No references, of course.

Andy's a fine writer and educator. Phiwum (talk) 03:26, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

So few words and so many of Andy's bogeymen. Wealth. Young Mass Murderers. Video games. Public School. The only thing that's missing is liberals. I think? Thanks J. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 05:32, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Wait wait, wealth is one of Andy's bogeymen? I thought he was (sort of) loaded. And, to be honest, it is pretty unlikely Lanza didn't play a video game at some point because, let's face it, everyone does that these days. --جئت ورأيت أنا القرف gross, isn't it? 08:41, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

This made me laugh[edit]

The second law of thermodynamics apparently predicts typosimg. I know I'm not the first person to ask this but why does Andy seem more and more like a parodist every day?--Umichcynic (talk) 09:45, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

I noticed that earlier and had a wee chuckle. Ho ho ho. Really Andy, really? Acei9
Wait... WTF does Heisenberg's Uncertainty principle have to do with spelling (or entropy for that matter). Is Andy implying that either I can spell a word, or read a word, and by doing the one, I don't know how to do the other? Suddenly, most of his edits are explained! --PsyGremlinHable! 10:19, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Did someone buy Andy a 8th hand science textbook that's pages have been rebound in the wrong order, and Andy hasn't noticed that? --Revolverman (talk) 10:31, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I like the way he seems to imply Murphy's Law is related to Heisenberg. Perhaps this all explains one thing though: the way you can either agree with Andy or know what the fuck he's talking about, but not both. rpeh •TCE 10:34, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
When Andy makes a typo, it's not Andy's fault; it's the universe's fault. Occasionaluse (talk) 15:14, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
That's only logical: Conservatives don't make errors - Andy is a Conservative (he and his mother are the only living true Conservatives. There may be two dead ones: G. Orwell and - to a certain extant - Jesus) - therefore, it has to be the universe's fault. --larron (talk) 15:26, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

A notable anniversary[edit]

Mark your calendars. The saturday after next will mark the first anniversary of the legendary Question Evolution booklet. I wonder if Kendoll will ever invent a tale to explain its continued non-existence at some point. Perhaps the author came down with a sudden illness, or because Project 200+ totally destroyed atheism on the internets it was no longer necessary to publish it. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:31, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

I can't wait to get my hands on this imaginary book. Acei9 20:32, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
You're in luck Ace, I imagined you did so there you go. Now, please write a review of it. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:50, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
I imagined a totally awesome review. It really shredded every little detail of the QE! booklet's pathetic arguments. Does that count? I posted it up in imaginaryspace for all to imagine on their own. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 21:41, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Terry Hurlbutt has lost his mind[edit]

This does not even amount to an expression of extremist or fringe political views. These are the ravings of a madman. Theory of Practice "...and we do love you madly." 04:49, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

I read that post a little earlier. His paranoid delusions are getting worse. Chuckarse could find treason in a note from Obama to his milkman. rpeh •TCE 06:21, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Wasn't he, just post election, talking about how he wants his own coup to "Take the White House Back!"? Terry baby, consistency! --Revolverman (talk) 06:25, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Aside from the fact that he doesn't know what a coup d'etat is (does he really think the POTUS is planning to overthrow the President, or that government agencies are planning to overthrow the POTUS in order to put his policies into law?), I have actually thought for quite a while that some kind of rebellion, coup or civil war was slowly building in America, long before Obama came to power. They can hide behind freedom of speech all they like, but the bile and vitriol that conservatives have been spewing for a while now is very disturbing. Whether they know it or not, and most of these bloggers and pundits don't have a clue (about anything), they are using classic propaganda techniques to demonise a group within society. Just like what a certain group of people did to a certain other group of people in the 1930s. It isn't the evil, lying, spiteful, immoral, homosexual, baby-killing, atheist God-hating, mentally retarded, freedom-loathing, Commo-Nazi liberals that are manoeuvering into position to overthrow the government, it's the (self-)righteous conservatives that have to act now to defeat this disease of liberalism that has infected the government. Sokar (talk) 06:35, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
I think Terry is only months away from becoming another McVie. The kind of sustained insanity him and Insanitary are spouting can't been sustained indefinitely - one or both of them is going to crack. It'll only take something like the GOP getting thumped in the next House election, or Christie winning, and he'll be ready to martyr himself for We The People. Also, I see he's got a clever way of stifling comment on his blog. Suddenly my password no longer works, and requests to reset the password are met with silence, from what should be an automated system. Very clever, Hurlbut. --PsyGremlinSnakk! 09:37, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Same thing happened to me with the comments. I can't believe he'd do that, because we have to account for a large portion of his traffic. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:34, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
I don't think that's quite Chuckie's style. More likely he'd try to organise a militia (with him as leader, obviously) and then call everybody traitors when they don't show up.
"he doesn't know what a coup d'etat is": the list of things Terry doesn't understand is huge and growing rapidly. He doesn't know about physics, biology (especially evolution), geology, the constitution, or almost any of the things he rants about. His latest fixation with sheriffs is amusing, for instance. Given the teabaggers' usual hard-on for the constitution it's odd that he's claiming that sheriffs are above federal law despite the word "sheriff" not appearing anywhere in the document. rpeh •TCE 11:10, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Nah. It'll just be more impotent foaming. Lots of people are like that, if they all went murderous the global population would have been on a steep decline since the 19th century--"Shut up, Brx." 11:41, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Terry will become another McVie? You mean he'll be a perfectly attractive and talented singer relegated to Stevie Nicks's shadow? Hell, serve him right. Phiwum (talk) 12:01, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Does he share a tree-house with Ken, where they can plot and lay out plans? --larron (talk) 12:23, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

I gotta give it to Terry, he is the only one with the guts to come right out and say what JPatt and Kara also appear to believe but waffled on when confronted: Sandy Hook was a government setup. Except Terry takes this all one step further, he believes it isn't merely to push gun-control, he thinks its the first stage of a government coup against America.
Honestly I feel the reason terry comes up with these conspiracy theories is because this is what he wants to happen. Terry wants America to plunge into a bloody civil war, into chaos. The idea that Obama may simply work to achieve his goals within the system and then successfully retire in January 2017 is too much to people like Terry to handle, because that would mean that Obama wasn't a monster after all and likely remembered as just another president, and millions dead in a terrible internal conflict is preferable.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:06, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
It's not just Terry. You have to remember that plenty of right-wing nutters wanted the US economy to crash, for no other reason than it would make Obama look bad. They are so twisted by the image of the Black Man in the White House, that they'd happily see millions of their countrymen suffer, to get him out. But yeah, wishing for a new civil war is taking it to new lows. --PsyGremlinTal! 13:17, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
To be honest, him and his ilk have spent decades feverishly praying for Jesus to come to earth and send all their personal enemies along with billions of people who were born and exist in a manner that displeases them to God's personal Sex/torture dungeon, so praying for a civil war is hardly a shock.
As for tosser's latest treason, I maintain that for all his bombastic and self righteous ranting, he remains too much a lily livered coward to do anything drastic unless he is 1000% sure there will be no one capable of opposing him. This is why he is so desperate for the government to fall, because he honestly thinks once their out of the way it will be easy for Il Douche Hurlbut and his generator fueled merry militia to seize control of New Jersey and lead the extermination of all dirty liberals and heathens from his domain.

Aye, it just shows how for all his bombast and pathetic attempts to play up his "grizzled and badass survivalist" credentials, he really is just a boneheaded, impotent, and astronomically fucking clueless little man with no idea of how to survive in the absense of modern civilization, and who has nothing but hatefulness and an especially delusional god complex to back him up Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 23:36, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

It's only a matter of time before he starts to believe that he is personally being targeted somehow. Some run-in with the state/county/law, his hosting provider, a random tragedy, etc... I don't see how he can become better without some kind of intervention (which would also probably set him off). Ultimately, I think he's a coward, so he probably isn't physically dangerous.

Sadly enough im about 80% sure he has some kind of "list of local enemies" ferreted away somewhere for a very rainy day, and the moment he thinks the government is dead i;m 100% certain he will try to have all of them put on trial for treason.

I have little doubt Terry will actually do anything. For all the bluster on CNAV for a revolution against tyranny, blah, blah, bah, they certainly do little other than preach to the true believers. I doubt any of these people are willing to surrender their creature comforts, let alone more, to attempt any sort of radical change, even within the law.
That part mentioned by Judge Holden about the Second Coming is spot on. They don't desire for the Rapture so much for their own personal salvation and glorification in heaven, but are motivated by the desire to see all their enemies, real and perceived, punished for opposing their beliefs.

He actively fixes his "perfect doubling" by denying other peoples' words that would ruin his pattern and scrabbling around for words in the right century to finish another "layer", but somehow he seems unaware that he's fixing the data.

Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 10:48, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Fixing the data was part of the plan as soon as the idea of "conservative words" was conceptualized. The entire concept is absurd, but Andy had to take it one step further to "prove" his personal beliefs was "The Truth", so he developed this entire bogus concept of said words doubling every century and then just wrote whatever he wanted to make sure the "data" fit his belief. Everyone, and I mean everyone, knows it is complete bullshit, but on CP, only Ken can say so and get away with it.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:38, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm a fan of the Conservative Best Words project, it shows Andy's delusions in a nutshell (nut's shell?) He is so convinced of his ideas that he was willing to participate in a test - and naturally, he failed miserably. August reiterates a point I made earlier: as long as there are four bins of "conservative words", one for each century, and as long none of those is empty, you can get any distribution you wish: Of course, Andy won't address this argumentimg. --larron (talk) 13:12, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Poetry maybe. Whoover (talk) 05:15, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
The 'the' isn't non-useful. In this case it denotes the nouns of the sentence (pedal and metal). Without it the idiom contains a verb and a non-specific term, in other words you have to pedal until either you find metal, or something turns to metal. And remember, the full idiom reads 'put the pedal to the metal' .--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 11:38, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

@Stunteddwarf: What semantic information is lost with the loss of "the"? "Put the pedal to metal", or even "put pedal to metal", still conveys the exact same thing — or something so similar there's no practical difference —, even if it sounds weird or isn't technically "correct".

Conceptual Dyslexia?[edit]

I know we just hashed over the Best Conservative Words insanity, but I didn't see any comment on this specific new BCW. Inattentive is just begging to come out. First, it's conservative because it foreshadows all of quantum mechanics, which we know is the basis of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Second, it warns against not observing, which will prevent instability of state. Only by being attentive can we cause entropy, and thus prevent tyranny.

Whatever Ken has with words, Andy has with concepts. Please savor this entry:

You'll need a strong stomach, but digging through the morass that's rooted in Bickel's link is quite entertaining. For instance, from his blog we get to Actors in Sandy Hook hoax are identified (Photos) with this gem: Maurice Greenberg, the father of Jennifer, was a baseball player and later, the CEO of American International Group, ir AIG, from 1967-2005. This is a composite of Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, the financier, and "Hammering Hank" Greenberg, who famously wouldn't play in a playoff game on Yom Kippur. (The latter is the only one of these Hank Greenbergs who's dead.)

This composite is the father of Jennifer Greenberg (in the fact-based world, neither Hank had a daughter Jennifer), who plays one of the grieving Sandy Hook parents. We know that there are no dead children because Obama used the same child actors in a photo-op for gun grabbing at the White House, stupid man. Anyway, Jennifer's husband takes time from his Trilateral Commission duties to play her screen husband in Sandy Hook interviews.

Bert himself doesn't even bother editing CP since he has a blog of his own now. I wonder why Karajou thinks it's important to keep spamming his KAL 007 crap for him?

I believe Bishop Bert has also referred to himself as Jewish, which I believe he was before he became a kind of Jew for Jesus. His Church refers to itself as Evangelical Catholic. Is it usual for members of this cult to consider themselves Jews? I thought that was still sort of an uncommon occurrence among evangelicals.

It is a victory like getting to punt the ball on fourth down is a victory, which is in essence what the Boy Scouts did.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:17, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
The dilemma facing the Boy Scouts is actually a very good example of the dilemma facing the whole of the US right. If they pander to their base support then they become increasingly marginalised, if they try to become more inclusive they alienate those they rely on for their survival. In the last election, to a significant extent, Republican candidates had to sail between the scylla of alienating the tea party or the charybdis of alienating the floating voter. Similarly the Boy Scouts, if they continue on their present course, will continue to shed members but, if they move into the 21st century, then they risk alienating the church groups they rely on for survival. It's no wonder they don't know what to do. Innocent Bystander (talk) 14:34, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
As a filthy foreigner I have not really observed the debate surrounding this issue. However, I intend to put my two cents in thusly: Isn't allowing gay males to become scout leaders (if that's the right term) equivalent to allowing straight males to become girl guide leaders? The latter, as I understand it, do not exist. Why should the former? On the other hand I am totally in favour of allowing lesbians to become scout leaders and gay males to become girl guide leaders. --Horace (talk) 22:30, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

My point is that when it comes to these youth groups we have always "assumed that most people are paedophiles". We do not accept it as appropriate for men to take groups of girl guides into the forrest for camping trips. We restrict it to women. Why do we do that? Are we assuming that all such men would be paedophiles? Or are we recognising that there is no bright line between children and adults and no bright line between paedophilia and normal sexual attraction? Sexual orientation and the potential for sexual attraction is the major issue and always has been. --Horace (talk) 23:07, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
I guess that's a possible answer. It's sort of morbid. I always just assumed it was grounded in another kind of bias - that these are men's activities best led by men. I can see there being a serious question in the minds of wingers of whether gay men are men at all. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 23:14, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
Oh no, I didn't mean to suggest that. Although now that you mention it I note that the concept does fit in rather well with Ken's narative about "girly men" as opposed to macho Christian young Earth believers and their attractive and fucund wives. As to being morbid, well, perhaps it is my years in the criminal law prosecuting people (men) who were, in fact, attracted to those many years their junior. I do not mean to suggest for a second that gay men are any more likely to be paedophiles. I suspect all men equally. --Horace (talk) 23:21, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Kind of funny really, since he's talking about the ultra-socialist economy where they literally have no money and are peaceful explorers, have men in uniform wearing skirts (see first episode TNG), that value pacifism and use force as a last resort, where everyone is almost completely atheistic but where religions of all kinds are tolerated (the Hindu Day of Lights is celebrated on the Enterprise-D) and viewed as behavioural or cultural oddities (in most series) or downright dangerous and viewed fairly negatively (DS9 and the Bajoran faith, Klingons killed their gods for being more trouble than they were worth). People who crave money, the Ferengi, are seen as evil, duplicitous, treacherous, vain, shortsighted and extremely stupid.

Star Trek was only part of the fun yesterday. I've been chuckling to myself about Ken's complete inability to self-reflect. First, as Iscariot points out, it's this hilarious reference to baddies who are described as baddies doing bad stuff whose skullduggery the good for nothing liberals thwart through teamwork. Not a very complimentary analogy to whatever it is Ken thinks he's doing. Then he includes an ironic taunt to "evolutionist nerds"img while referring to a 40 + year old science fiction show with a culture of nerd followers so well-known they have a name. Then poor Nate chimes inimg to say there's no point in AugustO complaining about Ken's truly embarrassing post about Maryland Bear unless (1) he likes being personally attacked and (2) having his church insulted because he's not the right kind of christian. Kenimg is too happy to oblige. His only response is to (1) personally attack Nate and (2) dog the catholic church because Nate isn't the right kind of christian. Just wow. I love it.

I enjoyed that. I imagine Andy probably has to reassure him when he does stuff like this. Looking at his recent actions, Karajou is the new TK. Revert, block, rangeblock. Bully, revert, block, rangeblock. Random hatepiece on mainpage. Revert, block, rangeblock... TK would be proud. Occasionaluse (talk) 14:28, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure the comparison works. TK was very clever and seemed, at first glance, to be a nice guy. When I first started here I wondered why this guy was getting such a hard time and it wasn't until I saw his treachery at first hand that I understood. Swabby uses the same tools but he hasn't got the finesse to be the new TK. What's more, I believe that TK did things to stir up trouble, swabbie actually believes in what he is doing. Innocent Bystander (talk) 16:27, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
The amount of range blocking he's doing makes me wonder, because I know it was brought up in the seekret mail group and I'm pretty sure swabbie saw it. I honestly don't believe the swabbie is stupid enough to believe that these rangeblocks apply to what he's saying they apply to (like /16 blocks for a community college), but I tend to want to underestimate people's stupidity. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:06, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
This is typical of Andy's management style; something goes on for years and one day Andy wishes to make a change of course (it was probably me that gave as an edit summary "liberal bigot" which Karajou mimed and institutionalized) and puts his foot down. But Andy doesn't send out a memo, solicit input, have a discussion, or want clearly defined policy pages. He "leads by example" (such that it is an example), thus everyone (Sysops & vandals) constantly read the tea leaves to see what minor little quirk becomes a new major new policy shift. nobsSay hello to my leetle friend 20:19, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

This goes back to the time of the Night of the Blunt Knives; then I awarded Karajou the Banhammer barnster, and he became more aggresive. But now he probably throws around the charge of "racist" as much as liberals do, so its become meaningless.
Incidentally, I was digging around in what's left of CP early days, and I almost forgot User:Conservative had to run for Admin to get sysoped, although no election process was ever formalized or put in place. He was active before I was, yet Andy only sysoped him when he needed vandal fighters, despite his large content contribs and/or the traffic he generated. There's even comments somewhere in the early discussion groups where ALL of US -- TK, DanH, Ed, Phil Rayment, me, and others all thought Ken was a little strange and maybe even a parodist. No one defended him, not even Andy. But Andy was amused by his engagements with vandals. He didn't get sysoped by the quality of his work, he only got sysoped as a foil for vandals (whom we later discovered to be rationalwikians). nobsSay hello to my leetle friend 08:08, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Do you think anyone even on Conservapedia takes him seriously anymore?[edit]

Andy's latest demonstration of his (possibly willful) ignorance of science is on display on the front page againimg. This time it is that canard that earthquakes are suddenly more frequent and somehow "disprove" an old Earth. The question though is, whether it is about Andy's insistence that the Earth is geologically unstable, or the universe may only have a diameter of 12,000 light years, or that he can write his own "superior" Bible, or his believe that both Relativity and E=mc2 are false, if anyone on Conservapedia believes his views are (even partially) correct? Even among his fellow administrators? I often wonder when he writes this stuff, if the rest of the staff and contributors do a collective face-palm, (but only the peons, and occasionally Ken, having the courage to actually challenge Andy on his bullshit)? We all seen this demonstrated in the debacle that is CP's E=mc2 talk page where it is literally Andy versus everyone else who has any knowledge of physics whatsoever. I wonder if it is just accepted that Andy's insights in science, politics, and Biblical translation are crap by everyone within the CP "community" but Il Duce's "contributions" have to be tolerated because of Andy's position at the apex of CP's ideologically driven authoritarian hierarchy?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:18, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

I would counter that with AugustO as my prime example. I believe he is a serious editor who tries to make the site better; however I would also state that his efforts are futile, but none the less sincere. Most of the admins have symbolically abandoned the site as any sort of encyclopedia and only use it to spam their own little off-site projects.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:20, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
I would say that AugustO is the exception that proves the rule. He doesn't have something to offer that everyone can ignore and that's the reason he is not long for this world (or at least he'll never be a "respected editor"). Occasionaluse (talk) 20:47, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
There are a few others, like SamHB, but I will have to concede that you are right for the vast majority in the fact they are not sincere encyclopedic editors no matter how you look at it. I will also agree with your assessment that they overlook disagreements with each other (even ones otherwise viewed as heretical) as long as it serves to help push forwards their individual agendas. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 21:24, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
There's no way that AugustO and/or SamHB honestly think there's anything to be done at CP. They can't possibly believe that Andy or the other sysops can be made to see any form of reason. And even if they could, there's no way Conservapedia can be turned around at this point; even if all the sysops suddenly became intelligent and lucid, the Conservapedia name has been tarnished too much. They'd have to start over from scratch with a new project and probably new names, and August and Sam have to know that, they seem too smart to miss it. They're just there to have fun demolishing Andy's arguments, or maybe just to practice their argument forming/debate skills on a non-standard opponent. X Stickman (talk) 22:10, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

I disagree, Rob. The nonsense he talks is consistent with what he's been talking since he first appeared on the internet more than 10 years ago. He's definitely not sincere in the way he approaches debate, but I don't doubt he's insincere in expressing his most basic beliefs. Why wouldn't you take him at his word? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 20:41, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
Ok, perhaps; this is a key distinction between people of faith and rational atheists. Rock hard science is not something with immutable moral laws, such as "Thou shalt do no murder". Science keeps changing; not long ago there were 8 planets, then in 1949 they discoverd a 9th; then a few years ago Pluto got de-frocked and there's only 8 again. But you can bet your bottom dollar it is a scientific fact there's only 8, or maybe 9, no wait a minute I guess only 8. Truthfully, I'm a sceptic like Andy. I have no faith in E=Mc2 cause I'm not really qualified to speak on it nor do I give a fuck. And I sure as fuck ain't gonna take a few eggheads opinion of the day that will be radically changed tomorrow. Remember, it wasn't long ago homosexuality was treated by science and medicine as a disease. nobsSay hello to my leetle friend 08:31, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Occasional, I agree that admins at CP overlook some of the opinions of fellow admins. But, frankly, I do the same here. Many folks here are fairly adamant that religious belief is irrational and a sign of weakmindedness. I happen to be Christian, but don't really care to discuss this issue in this context, so ignore those bits and enjoy the areas of common interest and agreement. I see nothing irrational or shameful in overlooking disagreements that you don't want to discuss, for the sake of otherwise enjoyable interactions. Phiwum (talk) 20:58, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Ultimately, it doesn't matter if they take him seriously or not - Andy has merely become an means to an end for the remaining sysops. As long as they don't openly challenge Andy's running of CP, Karajou gets to masturabate over his authoritarian fantasies; Terry and Ken get to linkwhore their blogs, Jpatt gets to post his latest racist screed against the Black Man in the White House and Ed can ease his butthurt after getting spanked at WP. They don't care what Andy says - if Andy came out and was in favour of raping babies to cue AIDS (which sadly is a thing) none of them would say a word, lest they lose the only outlet for their insecurities and insanity that they have. --PsyGremlinZungumza! 00:50, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Though he would certainly be a "bottom" if he was allowed out amongst the general public. Either way, he's a mentally ill asshole. So, happy Mardi Gras!

"Anonymous User" (recreate your account with your real first name and last initial), we don't fall for the self-serving liberal claptrap here. I looked at many of your edits before reverting them and I haven't seen a single insight from you yet, so regardless, I'm so confident that you're committed to censoring the Bible. You are in complete denial that that classroom prayer deters gun control. Nobody seriously doubts that it's not that difficult for Obama to post his real birth certificate. I think you have no one to blame but yourself if you choose to rant rather than produce. The Bible is completely logical. If you stick with that, then we can have a productive discussion.--Aschlafly 00:21, 1 December 2023 (UTC)
Yep. He appears marginally, or at least tangentially taking steps to reduce lightening rods of criticism. It's almost as if over the past months he's beginning to take his own efforts and project seriously. But that would take some radical housecleaning of personal and delegation of powers to others than the old guard to come up with policies and processes to make the project workable. nobsSay hello to my leetle friend 07:13, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
The test will be if he actually persists in enforcing his news not spam edict. If it's just a one off thing then Kendoll will just roll right over him and carry on with his usual behaviour. On the other hand, it'd be interesting to see what happens if Ken can't use CP to pimp his fantasy project. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 10:52, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

For what it's worth, I botched posting my last comment and the one from aschlaffy has changed three or four times since then.Sokar (talk) 15:40, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
Maybe next time your edit your comment, take a look at the source of his. Whoover (talk) 15:50, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
I did look at the source. I assumed it is some sort of auto-quote, spouting "Andyisms". What is perplexing, and more than a little worrying, is why something apparently addressed to me, someone that has made about four edits, would suddenly appear out of nowhere with no apparent relevance to anything. I have had PC problems in the last few days and the list of bounced emails in my inbox would suggest I have been infected with something... and this is the only place I have signed up to in quite a while.Sokar (talk) 16:00, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
I can see how it appears a little worrying to someone not used to this site's little ways. 'assquote' contains a macro which makes it appear to be directed to whomever is reading it. I'm pretty sure it's not the source of your PC problems. Innocent Bystander (talk) 16:04, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
@Jeeves, the test will also be if he cleans up MPL cause Ken can just roll it over there. nobsSay hello to my leetle friend 17:59, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Sure, Andy periodically trims this and that, but it only took Ken 21 minutes to get more not-remotely-news CMI spam up there as a big "fuck you"img to dear leader. I honestly don't know the "old guard," as Rob puts it, can stand being openly disrespected by this guy for years. It can't simply be a matter of each of them taking a "live and let live" approach to each others' particular brand of crazy in exchange for unlimited power over people who, ironically, have no incentive to give a shit one way or the other because they're never allowed to meaningfully contribute. Ken has taken a giant shit on the wiki. There is no possible way Karajou and JPatt are so unbelievably stupid that they actually believe the holy trifecta of atheism, homosexuality, and evolution are appropriately encyclopedic articles, is there? Gay Bowel Disease? Atheism, pederasty, and NABLA? Atheism and bestiality? Homosexuality and Anal Cancer? Parasites? Polygamy? Murder? Gonorrhea? Syphilis. Pederasty? Jesus christ. Karajou correctly expressed wariness of Ken's trolling from the start. He had Ken's number before he was even sysopped. They all agreed Ken has a serious problem cooperating with others and basically rams his view through no matter what. They know CP has been consistently ignored by any of the conservatives they admire. They must also be aware that there are two camps of people who even refer to CP: people who are laughing at it, and cranks. I don't get it. Cognitive bias? Self-deception? They don't care that much because they never had much of a dog in the fight? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 19:22, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

From a certain perspective, you might even call it secret genius. If you squint at it right you can see the outline of the plan. 1) Build batshit insane site. 2) Have people come gawk at it, people who then link to it by way of pointing and laughing. 3) Exploit the google juice by linking to your other site from that site. 4) Profit! If I actually believed Terry had that in mind when he started at CP, I'd think he's Machiavellian mastermind rather than an angry racist looking for any community that can tolerate him. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 21:25, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
" I don't get it. Cognitive bias? Self-deception? They don't care that much because they never had much of a dog in the fight?" If the question you're answering is "why doesn't Andy turf Ken/why doesn't Karajou convince Andy to turf Ken," I'm pretty sure the answer lies in Andy's inability to cop to a mistake, especially one that's festered for more than 5 years now. Besides, Andy really believes that people come to CP in good faith -- or he doesn't care why they come there, just so long as he can calim more and more unique views -- and Ken gives him those numbers.

People supposedly are sysoped on merit. They're not. Look as FOIA for example. volumnious contributor but oblivious to revert wars, doesn't even have upload rights. And Ken never got sysoped for his contributions, only help out on the Night of the Blunt Knives. Andy loves a partisan food fight, so long as he and his goons can use the banhammer to have the last word, cause that's the way he thinks Wikipedia works. nobsSay hello to my leetle friend 15:24, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Maybe it's my memory, but I thought Ken was sysopped before that, specifically so he could continue editing the Evolution article after it had been locked. I recall something about it being intended to be a temporary measure, to be changed back once the article was unlocked again, but of course it never was. Of course at the time Ken was just this weird guy who opposed evolution and argued badly, not yet being revealed as a powerhouse destined to bring down evolutionary nonsense on a global scale. --Kels (talk) 16:04, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

I think that's right. Of coarse, Ken and Andy still haven't figured out Ken's high traffic pages, then and now, are only read by Rationalwikians. Ken owes his success as an admin and contributor entirely to Rationalwiki. What an ingrate. nobsSay hello to my leetle friend 17:43, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Yep, Andy, let's see, here it's been in the high 20s most of the day. I mean, temperatures that cold? In February? In the Northeast? Unheard of! I mean, that's only, well, right around average. Absolute proof the Earth is getting colder. DickTurpis (talk) 03:52, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
The thing that really pisses me off about this is how these fucktards ignore heatwaves, or write them off as "natural". Back in January they used a single day in a single city in China that had a record low temperature as "proof" that there was no global warming. That same week, and a few days before and after that week, Australia was under the influence of a record heat wave and half the country was on fire. One of those days saw an average continent-wide temperature of 36C, with highs that reached 48C (I think that's around 120F). If you were to draw a triangle from LA to New York to Miami, that is the size of the area that was over 40C that week. It was so hot that roads literally melted. Even the cities topped 45C that week. One night, the temperature was 35C at 1am. People died from heat exposure. Animals, native and farmed, died en masse from the heat (there's thousands of dead Flying Foxes five minutes drive from my house, accompanied by an unbelievable stench). And they have the temerity to say "people in hot places won't even notice an increase in temperature", and "people like hot weather".Sokar (talk) 08:57, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
