Markman's Back[edit]

I was beginning to miss Markman, the uber-dick. He's the guy that, to suck up to Andy, changed every reference of "children of Israel" to "sons of Israel" in the Conservative Bible. Including the one that is followed with "every man and woman." His specialty is blocking people for the 90/10 rule, like he did today to an editor whose last 7 edits were to articles or his user page, and had 6 total edits to talk pages proper, out of 23. Everytime I hear myself saying "nobody can be that stupid so he must be a parodist," Andy says something even stupider. It's all so confusing. Dick or parodist? Can we ever know? Whoover (talk) 23:38, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

He's definitely a parodist, and a not very entertaining one at that. --Inquisitor (talk) 23:41, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Parodist obviously. Andy likes him though and will back him to the hilt. At the end of the day he is just a nasty piece of work. He picked on AlanE (a fairly harmless and productive editor) in a particularly vicious way just because he knew he could count on the support of the sysops which Karajou and JM promptly gave him. --DamoHi 23:50, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
He did block Kendoll's sock for 90/10, which is at least chuckle-worthy. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:54, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
So the consensus is parodist and dick. No wonder I was confused. Whoover (talk) 00:16, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
I don't remember him ever blocking one of Ken's socks. But I do remember he had quite the hard on for DonnyC. --Inquisitor (talk) 00:48, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
I would guess it's this guy that the speculation is about. There is also this rather odd exchangeimg including a post by Ken signed Rafael addressing Zeta but responding to Ryancsh, the guy blocked by Markman. Occam's Razor would have them all be the same guy, including Conservative. Short of that, I have no idea what's going on. But it feels that ZetaSonic is trying a bit too hard, which implies strategy, which rules out Ken. Whoover (talk) 06:19, 5 June 2013 (UTC) Now I see Conservative's undo brought back Rafael's comment. It's still a rat's nest of parodists, for certain. Whoover (talk) 06:40, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Brenden is taking Markman on over the Ryansch block by unblocking and telling him why. If I know Markman (and I think I do) this will turn into a hell of a shitfight as Markman will take it as a personal slight. Brenden isn't a bad fellow, although he reminds me of a prefect in school, earnestly trying to please the teachers. --DamoHi 09:03, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Zeta is Ken. There's no strategy, just Ken's guilty inability to stay away. London Grump (talk) 13:14, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Zeta is almost certainly NOT Conservative, and a look at his post history (particularly his comment about the Wisdom Tree NES game) should make that very clear.WilliamR (talk) 23:47, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Zeta is not Ken, Ken merely restored a deleted edit. Ken may try to hide his identity on occasions but he's never so different as ZetaSonic is from Ken's usual style. Redchuck.gif ГенгисunbelievingModerator 02:58, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Markman has been attempting to troll me on my talk page--Patmac (talk) 15:46, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

He's going on now about banning ryancsh as a parodist because Ryan Cash is an internet joke. Anyone know what he's talking about. Did I miss a meme memo? Whoover (talk) 16:05, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

I suspect that Ryan Cash troll has something to do with this page. Brenden (talk) 17:46, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
That's pretty thin for a meme. One use of a very common name in a made-up context on a single obscure site is an "internet joke"? Whoover (talk) 17:56, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
I agree, Ryancsh is a long shot from Ryan Cash, and as I said to Markman, I don't see how a website dedicated to trolling some random individual has anything to do with Conservapedia. Brenden (talk) 18:00, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Get real Brenden, markman is not interested. He is there to sow as much crap as he can in as short a time as he can before he takes his mask off, laughs at them all and leaves. He has no interest in being reasonable. He is tk light. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:09, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
The genuine-editors-to-parodists ratio is so low at Conservapedia that trolls are forced to troll their fellow trolls. --Night Jaguar (talk) 23:10, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
How many genuine editors are there ? GregG and AlanE are the only ones that come to mind here + the one topicers like FOIA and Bert. A full list of the non-parodists would be tiny as. YOLO Naca (talk) 00:13, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
What about AugustO? He's genuine enough, although he really should have learnt by now that trying to improve Conservapedia is like trying to polish a turd. Spud (talk) 05:16, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Angry bear agrees with usimg Naca (talk) 08:01, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

He looks toimg be getting boredimg and is starting to remove the mask perhaps? Attacking Ted Nugent as a liberal song writer is surely too obvious poarody even for the cp sysops to ignore. Oldusgitus (talk) 13:48, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Proving that dick beats parodist, Markman gave the restored Ryancsh a symbolic, two-hour block for daring to complain about being blocked for no reason. Whoover (talk) 16:38, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Brenden, you are pissing in the windimg, markman is a dick and a parodist who is doing his best to out TK TK. All you did was get Rafael'simg block extended and Markman is now gunning for you. When will you learn, cp is not a wiki, it is a hate blog edited in the main by parodists who will take great delight in sending you down the road. And on the way you have made Rafael collateral damage. Way to go. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:46, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Got plenty of popcorn? Whoover (talk) 20:53, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Everything you need to know about Markman is that the string "block" appears 58 times on his talk page. Faced with mysteries dark and vast/statements just seem vain at last. 21:26, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Parodists battle for Andy's affection. Too bad for them, Andy subscribes to the do nothing school of leadership. He wont take any action; a vague comment is just about all they can hope for. Marlow (talk) 01:40, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
With one exception: if a block war commences (which is likely) and Andy gets wind of it, he'll quietly yank away someone's (Brenden's) block rights, then they'll get permabanned by the victor. We saw it with Rob and probably others that I can't think of at the moment. Cow...Hammertime! 01:52, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Speaking of getting bored, starting at 8:50 we see Ken unprotect Atheism, have RobertTurkel make a change and then reprotect Atheism. Why does he use socks like this? Whoover (talk) 14:09, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Would be marvellous if Markman blocked RoberTurkel for 90/10. Ghost (talk) 14:17, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Even better to block Conservative as "Sock of RobertTurkel." Whoover (talk) 14:53, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Or Andy as a sock of collegerepublican Ghost (talk) 15:00, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Other than blocking Rafael and Patmac some more today (dick mode), Markman is back to full-on parodist. He's changing biblical "Judge" to "politician,' as in Ruth, where the CBP knows the text is a plea for small government. Andy will love this and I look forward to the Book of Judges becoming the Book of Liberal Politicians. Anyone who knows anything about the Bible will point out that "Judge" was a quasi-prophet-cum-army-general, chosen by God to lead. Samson was a Judge. He had human failings but was given superpowers by Guess Who when appointed Judge. Samuel was a Judge. Eli, Gideon and Deborah were Judges. As far as I know, they never voted Democrat. The Conservative Bible is such fertile ground for parody that it's hard to imagine it being started by anyone but a parodist. Andy may still be proven someday to have been performance art.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── While the badmouthing of me goes on, one of you decided to post this lovely message on my talk page.

I knew that markman was a paradoist moron troll but I had no idea he was Jewish. And markman, I could never be the one to acuse your 'race' of killing jesus as I don't believe there was ever anyone called jesus in the first place. And considering all the lies you throw out in pursuit of your trolling and your victimisation of decent editors over at cp I really think that you playing the victim card is just a little shallow and hypocritical, don't you? Oldusgitus (talk) 14:26, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
Incidentally, where has this attitude that markman is a sysop/admin over there come from? From what I can see he's a standard user with block, edit, rollback and skipcatcha. He has no more rights over there than my sock has and quite frankly shouldn't the users he is bullying start to point that out to both him and others? Oldusgitus (talk) 15:52, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

See, this blatant sockpuppetry is the reason why RationalWiki is seen as a vandal site composed of liars at CP. You just admitted that you operate a sockpuppet deceitfully at Conservapedia. Brenden (talk) 21:27, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure that having one id here and a different one there counts as blatant sockpuppetry. For one thing, your existence notwithstanding, editing here is grounds for banning there, at least if the whim strikes a sysop or nasty user. (BTW, who claimed Markman had sysop status?) For another thing, very few CP editors reveal actual names. In some cases they don't reveal gender or number. By your reckoning, Conservative is a blatant sockpuppet even if we ignore his many actual sockpuppets. Vandalism has nothing to do with having a down-low registration on CP. I would have expected you to know that. Whoover (talk) 23:31, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
My sock was set up when even being suspected of being an account holder here earned a perma ban from uber troll TK. It's been there for several years and has not once been used to vandalise or to insert parody, in fact the opposite. I revert silly vandalism. I do leave parody there to show the world what morons there are at cp that they can't even recognise blatant parody when it is obvious for all to see. As for who was suggesting that markman was someone senior there it was comments on cp itself. IIRC someone was arguing with him and stopped, saying something like 'I dont want to argue with a senior admin'. Oldusgitus (talk) 12:10, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Markman seems to be loosing interest again. Wonder if Andy will sysop him to keep him and his iron fist around. Ghost (talk) 21:33, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Tebow[edit]

Tim Tebow is signing with the New England Patriots; now the question is will this great conservative sports star be unjustly forced to play behind overrated liberal Tom Brady.--Danielfolsom (talk) 22:13, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Ugh. Another fucking year of Tebowmania. Why the fuck can't he just piss off and make money on the megachurch circuit so I never have to hear of him again. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:30, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
Why the fuck have the Patriots picked him up? Just about the only job he could do there would be to push a mop about.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 23:21, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
This is apparently evidence that "God does indeed have a sense of humor"img. Like always, Andy seems to be the only one who gets God's jokes. --Night Jaguar (talk) 23:48, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
@JeevesMkII you say that like he won't be a 5th string practice only QB. --Revolverman (talk) 23:49, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
My interest in American junior rugby is basically nil, but Andy has managed to turn me into a Jets fan. Hopefully they'll flatten the Patriots in Tebow's first game.--Fergus Mason If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Otherwise don't put it there. - Anton Chekov 00:07, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Guaranteed Tebow will not be a quarterback (full time). He'll likely make the difficult (for him) transition to tight end. Aboriginal Noise with 4 M's and a silent Q 00:21, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
@Fergus As someone that enjoys rugby junior, I can tell you there us a near zero chance of that happening. Tebow has value as a 3rd string emergency QB that can do something else useful on game day to make the active 46, such as playing fullback/3rd tight end/flanker/H-back or another archaic position that appears 10 times a game these days and as a scout team QB to prepare for teams that run the option (although they don't seem to have any on their schedule this year). He won't be beating the Jets, Brady will. He will get to hold his towel for him though.- π 02:25, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
He will be third string when it comes to the quarterback position. Remember, the Patriots have Tom Brady, one of the best quarterbacks of the modern era and an elite player. From what ESPN states, Tebow will be used as a quarterback only though, which means he will be heading the practice squad offenses and watching the regular games.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 03:37, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

I don't even see him being a TE/H-back, and I don't know if the Pats even use a FB. He's behind Gronk and Hernandez, two of the best TE's in the game if that's what the Pats were thinking. On second thought, Gronk and Hernandez were pretty injury prone last year, maybe there is something there.Transitional FormStill Durbinating 07:08, 11 June 2013 (UTC) ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Both Gronkowski and Hernandez are likely out for the first couple of games. The patriots have typically carried a FB - Fiammetta in 2012, Polite in 2011, Morris in 2012, typically sees action only in short yardage/goal line. Tebow is either going to get cut, warm bench, or learn to play something other than QB, because there's no way that Tom Terrific is getting replaced for even garbage-time snaps absent injury. Hipocrite (talk) 12:48, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

I know next to nothing about this weird sport you Yankees worship, but how good are the Patriots. It'll be interesting to see Andy put a spin on their results, if they win without Tebow playing. My guess is we'll nothing about their wins and everything about the games they do lose. --PsyGremlinHable! 13:10, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Without looking at the actual win-loss record, I'd estimate the Patriots over the last ten years finish the season somewhere around 12-4, usually winning the AFC East, and it's not uncommon to see them in the AFC Championship (winner of that game heads to the Super Bowl.) So if Tebow couldn't get off the bench for the Jets, I don't see him doing much for the Patriots. Perhaps a trick play here or there, or videotaping opponent practices, but nothing worthwhile. Jared (talk) 13:25, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
They might not rate as the best team each year, but have managed to rate as being vary good or better every year for at least a decade, and that includes those times when key players have been injured, which puts them as being one of the best teams around for the past 10-15 years. Compare that to the Colts who, for a long time, looked the better team, then Manning goes down with an injury and it suddenly became obvious that the Colts had no flexibility in offence and, as a team, the Colts were all about just one man. Take him away and the team collapsed, which isn't something the Patriots do.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 13:43, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

The Patriots enter the season as the favorites to lose to the Broncos in the conference championships, and are considered by vegas to be the 4th best team in the league. They have a legitimate shot, but the WR status is questionable, along with TE health in the early season. The return of Gronk in week 6-8 will likely be incredibly helpful. Hipocrite (talk) 14:00, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

I (and most people) put the Patriots in the top 4 or 5 teams of the 32 teams in the NFL.Transitional FormStill Durbinating 04:49, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

My Prediction[edit]

Tom Brady will end up on Andy's infamous "Overrated Sports Stars" list. This will occur when Brady struggles in a game during the 2013 NFL Season (every quarterback, no matter how elite, has games which they struggle). Of course Brady will not be benched by Belichick, as even a struggling Tom Brady is still superior to either Mallett or Tebow, but Andy won't see it that way. For Andy, keeping Brady in the game will be nothing short of a conspiracy between liberals in the NFL, the Patriots, the media, and all of New England to keep outspoken Christian Tim Tebow from taking the field, where no doubt he would succeed as Gawd smiles upon him above all else. After all, the only reason Peyton Manning ("The liberal media treated him like the Second Coming of Christ in order to oust conservative Tim Tebow from his leadership position in the swing state of Colorado prior to the Presidential Election 2012.") and Mark Sanchez ("he New York Jets quarterback is being touted as the team's best QB over conservative Christian Tim Tebow despite falling apart at the end of the 2011–12 season.") are on the infamous list is because they are in the way of Andy's vicarious glory through Saint Tim. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:51, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Christ, just how bitter and childish is this man? Even Sports Illustrated is part of the Great Conspiracy against Andy's made-up list of great conservative sport stars. --PsyGremlinSpeak! 13:24, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I'm surprised he hasn't made the list yet: The media and NFL clearly only promote Brady, who hasn't won a Super Bowl since 2005, because he went to the liberal University of Michigan, has a supermodel wife, and displays Hollywood values. Deny this and lose all credibility. Godspeed (talk) 13:30, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I do have to agree with him in regards to Mark Sanchez. Another USC quarterback who didn't pan out. Aboriginal Noise with 4 M's and a silent Q 13:37, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Did somebody say University of Michigan? Faced with mysteries dark and vast/statements just seem vain at last. 13:59, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I don't agree with Andy on Sanchez. You are right he didn't pan out, Andy though no doubt feels that Sanchez was lionized by the team and the media over Tebow instead of the reality where the media all but eviscerated the hapless Jets' starter last year. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:41, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Damn, it has already begun and the Patriots haven't even gotten through mini-camp yet.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:41, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Whatever happened to Andy's other mancrush and Godbotherer, Jeremy Lin? Given the hype over him and how he's faded, he sounds like just another overrated sports star. --PsyGremlinSprich! 14:56, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

The gauntlet has been thrown...[edit]

Terry takes a page from Conservative. It looks like another Lenski affair could be in the works...if Lenski even notices Terry's silly little taunt.209.179.125.134 (talk) 14:24, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Of course Lenski won't notice, unless someone takes the time to actually ask him instead of demanding a debate on some obscure and poorly maintained blog of a failed son of an ancient political activist. If Flingbooty follows Kens MO it'll go down something like this; Demand a debate on your own terms, wait an unreasonably short amount of time, declare victory, crow about said victory on your own blog, then move goalposts if the debate challenge is actually answered. Which of course it won't, and Terry will have fodder for another few blog posts. Profit! Shakedangle (talk) 14:55, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
One would assume that Launchbooty has actually sent a request to Lenski, but somehow I doubt it. I'm guessing that the above scenario will play out. Besides, Lenski has a full-time job and doesn't have time to be responding to internet nobodies all the time. --PsyGremlinFale! 15:01, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
I see it as this: Terry wants to debate a subject that is sort of Lenski's area of study (like asking a golf player where/how golf balls are made)? The only reason Terry wants to debate is to get his name out there and try to derail the Unstoppable Train of Evolutiontm, since he has no credibility except for his past notoriety. Lenski has nothing to gain from the debate, but it seems odd Terry made a rather neutral step in the debate process to which they can agree to. Then again, the "audience question and answer" bit sounds like Terry wants to flood a bunch of his like-minded ilk in and bombard Lenski with stupid-specific questions. I'd say IT'S A TRAP, but if someone wanted to stir the pot of shit a little, they could email him everything about Terry, being Temlakos of the Digg Patriots and such and hoping Lenski posts the email exchange. For the lulz, of course. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 15:04, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
Why did Terry issue this challenge on Conservapedia rather than CNAV? I doubt Lenski will debate him. Working scientists generally have little-to-no interest in creationism, because it has nothing to offer the research they are doing. That's why it's hilarious when PJR assumes that evolutionary biologists run around trying to cover their tracks so that creationists can't catch them out.
There are a few scientists who care about this because of the effect that religion has on politics (and politics has on science education and scientific research), particularly in the United States, but, to my knowledge, Lenski is not among them. Also, a few of the gnu atheists who are also biologists (like Richard Dawkins and PZ Myers) like to talk about creationism because it is tough to find a clearer example of an incorrect religious dogma--but, once again, this doesn't include Lenski. Godspeed (talk) 16:29, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
I suspect Terry's looking for a chance to pull a Gish Gallop on Lenski, both in the debate and by packing the Q&A with fundies doing the same. This lets him claim a victory in his own opinion, and in doing so provides some redress for the bitter smack down of the Lenski affair itself. I'd even venture to guess that there's a desire by Terry to defeat Lenski where Andy failed to do so. I'm convinced that he considers his blog and conservative prowess to be superior to Andy's, and this would build his own reputation up in those circles. That all said, the best response from Lenski is to politely reply that science is done through the scientific method and peer review, not staged debates, and that he'd look forward to reading any formal submission Terry plans on submitting to qualified journals. --DinsdaleP (talk) 16:45, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

(ec) I'm not sure that's true. Debating and teaching require different skill sets--that's why the Gish Gallop works against those who aren't familiar with how fundamentally dishonest creationists are. A casual audience with no scientific training and that is not taking a biology class is going to be interested in arguments that make sense to them intuitively, not necessarily is hearing about such-and-such experiment or a range of fossils or peer reviewed papers. A biologist's job will be especially tough if the audience is packed with YECs. Debating these clowns is like mud wrestling with a pig--you just get dirty, and the pig likes it.

The curse of Tebow[edit]

Every team he touches turns to overrated sports stars. Andy didn't even bother to wait to see if Tebow would actually start a game... --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:35, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

The funniest part about that is that it was added by a parodist who taunted Andy in the edit summary, but Andy just went with it. Andy actually knows that Tebow is shit (at least by NFL standards), but him not getting to start allows Andy to feed his persecution complex. Godspeed (talk) 18:43, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
No andy doesn't. I am willing to bet he knows nothing about sports and the only thing he knows about American Rugby is that Tebow is a player and his position is something called QB. I doubt he has ever watched a single game all the way through, let alone with the kind of passion you and I may feel about a sporting event. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:03, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Ok - as someone who's disagreed with Andy on sports issued - his analysis is correct - perhaps minus the media promotion (and who knows what being a better speaker has to do with a depth chart). Tom Brady is probably the best quarterback ever, but he does have a noticeably weaker arm than most nfl QBs - that's one of the reasons he was drafted so low. His ability to read defenses and make accurate passes has more than compensated for the lack of arm strength, but it doesn't mean it's not true. It's also fairly obvious that Tebow is a better athlete, but being an athlete at the quarterback position has mixed results - and I can't think of an instance where someone whose mechanics and accuracy are as bad as Tebow's being especially successful.--Iduan (talk) 20:32, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Andy's sports "insights" are by far my favorite part of CP. "Manning and Brady chase money". I love that analysis. Manning went to the Broncos after the team he had spent his entire Hall of Fame career with cut him in favor of their rookie draft choice. Brady was a sixth round "best of the public" draft choice who has spent his entire Hall of Fame career with the same team. Yup. No loyalty. All about the money. Andy's sports knowledge make me want to kiss him on the mouth. It's adorable. Hiphopopotamus (talk) 05:04, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Ultimate proof that Andy is wrong... He claims that Brady and Manning are only so heavily promoted by the media because they 1. lack talent and 2. lack morals/religion.

Times like this make me remember just how orwellian andy's own psyche truely is at this point. He honestly sees a football player who had some vague connection to religiosity as some superhuman paragon of arya...christian conservative machismo simply because he was on "andy's" side and thus embodies all andy loves, and unilaterally decided that every other football player (and sportsman in general it seems) is therefore on the "liberals side" and thus clearly an utterly talentless and degenerate poseur sent by the infernal liberal conspiracy to corrupt RealTruConservatives (or something, hes always been nonsensical on the "whys" of the supposed conspiracy) simply because they are not his pet player.

You may underestimate Andy's willingness to ascribe evils to feminism. As we speak, Markman is continuing to write daughters out of the Bible, with Andy's support. On the theory that the Hebrew words banim and b'nei can only mean "sons" and never "children," we have translations like "The sons of Anah were: Dishon, and Aholibamah daughter of Anah." Every other translation going with "the children of Anah ..." is liberal bias. Andy really likes this concept, that biblically "daughter" is an inferior kind of son.

Markman has changed all the "children" to "sons" and is now working on the squishy, pacifist biases.

He's doing fine with sons and children. Those are both good meanings for b'nai. I have worked with the Jewish service group B'nai Brith, which they translate as Sons of whatever Brith means.

Knowing Hebrew doesn't mean that his reasoning is at all sound, nor that he is operating in good faith. Nor does being from Israel. If I knew the way/I would take you home.
You guys aren't actually supporting your claims. It's dumb to say someone's reasoning is unsound without bothering to show why, especially when the person is obviously correct. Good faith or bad faith has nothing to do with being right or wrong. Being from Israel means he knows what this word means. But anyway, reasoning doesn't really come into being able to use a dictionary or knowing what a word means. Nate Keaton (talk) 18:41, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
Look at possible translations. They all make sense except for the last one, which denies that b'nai can mean "children." It's passages like this one that make it clear to any scholar that the ancient word, like current usage, could mean mixed-gender children as well as males. This is the exact opposite of their position on English grammar: that the use of male pronouns in uncertain-gender contexts is logical, and "chairwoman" is unnecessary. There are many passages where b'nai refers to a mixture of men and women. To translate it in those passages as "sons" makes no sense. The fact that sometimes is means "sons" has nothing to do with good translation of this passage. Whoover (talk) 18:50, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Classic Andy hubris[edit]

Faced with mysteries dark and vast/statements just seem vain at last. 17:50, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

I have shown several times that he is making this up as he goes along.[2] I cited several helpful resources in a discussion we had that disappeared and it became apparent to me that he could not support his position and he just stopped responding. I understood that to mean that he has no basis for disagreeing. The Church is hostile to YEC. How can Andy Schlafly say these things out loud when modern Popes have basically ridiculed YEC and it is clear as day that it embraces the theory of evolution as an explanation for the diversity of life. That has nothing to do with the special creation of our souls, as the encyclical Humani Generis teaches. Nate Keaton (talk) 18:06, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

However he is not a fool and it would be dangerous to dismiss him as such.— Unsigned, by: 94.9.177.164 / talk / contribs
I'm not "new" new but I do admit that after several years of looking at Conservapedia and talking to Mr. Schlafly I am more and more confused by how a smart guy can say things that are so wrong as if they're obvious. I have never seen him defend anything he says. It's usually just ???? multiple question marks, whatever they mean. One would be fine if he wasn't asking rhetorical questions that only distract from showing that he was wrong about his original points. He also never changes his mind or lets people correct misstatements or remove over the top opinions from articles. I am afraid to remove the word "Evolutionist" from the RCC article.

Powder - yes he is. He's just really weird. Anonymous editor - if he is not a fool but thinks he is right even when the truth is staring him right in the face, what is he doing? Does he really believe these things or does he have another agenda? After more than 20 years of studying the Bible and theology with Discalced Carmelites and at Opus Dei centers of all places I have honestly never seen someone politicize a theological point so unsupportable.

Based on ehat evidence do you conclude Andy is "smart?" If I knew the way/I would take you home. 18:49, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
He went to Princeton, Johns Hopkins and Harvard Law School. Odds are he smart. Nate Keaton (talk) 19:08, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
Small point -- he worked at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory; I don't think he went to school at Hopkins, at least not to earn a degree, though he may well have taken a few courses. Also, while it's not a bad school, Hopkins engineering school is no where as prestigious as its medical school. (The more cynical would say it's a degree mill for the Baltimore/Washington corridor tech industry.)
In the interest of full disclosure, I did take a few JHU engineering courses, including a couple actually taught at the Applied Physics Lab. While I'd have had no idea who he was at the time, it's possible I saw Andy on the campus; the time frame was about right. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 11:11, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

What's dumb about it. It's not conclusive proof but going to two of the top 5 most selective schools in the United States sets the odds in favor of the man being pretty smart. I don't accept there's all that much evidence of his stupidity, just ample evidence that he has some extremely peculiar beliefs and debates extremely poorly. Nate Keaton (talk) 19:14, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
His mother is Phyllis Schlafly, which makes it much more believable that could have attended though schools without accepting that he is not an idiot. — (talk to) [æn əˈmɛɹɪkən ˈnaiːɪlɪst] 19:24, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

That's bull Nate. He comes from a solidly republican grandee family and his mothers name will have opened doors for him at those places in the same way that having the right family opens doors at Oxford and Cambridge. So far as I am aware he has had one real job in his life, that was the patent lawyer one which he fucked up so badly it cost the company lots of money and him his job did it not? Since then he has basically been on wingnut welfare as atorney to extreme fringe groups of doctors and his mothers Eagle Forum. He is NOT smart. The evidence of the Lenski Dialogue show he is anything but smart. I would even say it is debatable wether he is intelligent, I've certainly not seen him say, do or write anything to suggest he is. Oldusgitus (talk) 22:49, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
He worked at Wachtell Lipton for christ sake dude. His dad was a lawyer in a relatively small county courthouse near St. Louis. His mom is a wingnut celebrity. There is no way those connections got him a job at one of the fanciest tall building law firms in the country or any closer to admission to Harvard law school of all places. These are the elite of the elite. Some ultra right wing cunt from West Central Illinois doesn't appeal to the Nob Hill and Montauk crowds. And no, he didn't fuck a case up so badly that he cost the company lots of money and him his job. He advanced a stupid but nonfrivolous position in a motion in a case in federal court. We don't know anything about what his client paid or his employment status, but I can assure you that defense lawyers at fancy law firms don't get fired for taking scumbag risks like he did. His Supreme Court briefs in AAPS and video game cases and his appellate brief in the Menendez case were fine. You've got to be pretty smart to even comply with SC filing requirements. They're insane. In non-amicus briefs, he makes the best argument his client's loser positions can support. There wasn't much he could do in the Menendez case except discuss civil procedure issues and talk about Washington's heart felt letter. His amicus briefs are stranger than fiction but he's not stupid. LIke Nate said he's just a fucking weirdo. He looks stupid because he believes unbelievably stupid shit, having been blinded by powerful ideological bias and the psychological trauma of growing up in that house with that Skeksis as a mother. — Unsigned, by: Nutty Roux / talk / contribs

I just saw this. He's just a rigid and prideful liar. He knows I'm not "liberal" in any way except disagreeing with him on a few theological issues that he is such an intellectual lightweight he can't justify his positions on. Nate Keaton (talk) 22:35, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Andy may have been smart at one time (though, honestly, I suspect his family connections and wealth had a lot to do with his early success). However, even if he was smart once, he clearly isn't any longer, as you can clearly see here. I don't know what exactly happened to him, but there is no way the person he is now could possibly make it at Princeton or Harvard Law. --Night Jaguar (talk) 06:09, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

I don't know whether anyone here picked up on this reference to Andy from a few months back, but this seems to be an appropriate time to mention it. It's from a self-pitying column from wingnut Ellis Washington writes to Andy's mother, complaining about his being blacklisted from the prestigious law schools around the country.
Here is Phyllis Schlafly's reply:
Ellis: You are blacklisted because you are a conservative. The law schools have been taken over by the liberals and feminists. I think it’s hopeless. I would like my son, Andy (Harvard Law School graduate), to have a law school faculty position, but I know he is blacklisted, too.
Aww. If it was anyone else, I might have a shred of sympathy for Phyllis over her son's "plight." Tacitus (talk) 07:06, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Jesus Christ!img:
"The Humani Generis is clear, Jesus was clear, and the logic is clear. There is no logical objection to one Adam, or to the Great Flood. But once one denies one Adam or the Great Flood, then numerous logical problems arise in explaining what Jesus said and did. Why choose illogic over logic? Well, one reason is because liberals push anti-Jesus theories, and evolution is one of them, and perhaps some would rather be accepted by liberals than ridiculed by them. I choose logic any day and urge others to do likewise. Logic never fails."
The dude is definitely not smart. --Night Jaguar (talk) 10:20, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
It makes some sense. Jesus spoke of the Genesis account and the Flood as if it was factual history. So if you believe Jesus existed and spoke these words, then you believe that he believed in the Genesis account, and if you also believe Jesus' words are divine truth, then logically the Genesis account must be true. It does seem illogical of some Christians to believe in Jesus as God, spoke about Genesis as history yet do not believe in Genesis themselves.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:24, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
No he didn't. I would be happy to have a discussion on the proper interpretation of the Olivet Discourse, but it's not necessary to make my point here. I do believe Jesus existed and I do believe Jesus spoke those words, however, I do not believe that mentioning Noah means he was claiming it happened as written. There are very good reasons to take much of Genesis as poetic or allegorical. The flood gets mentioned previously in Matthew 7:24- and the point is the same as in 24:36- - men will be taken unawares. That's it. Christ is speaking prophetically of the "hour of the unknown" by referring to the story of another world changing catastrophe. That doesn't mean the story is true. It means it has meaning and gives Christ's prophesy context. We use references to stories all the time without anyone bothering to ask whether they're true or not, which goes to show that it's not as easy as saying "Jesus said it, them's His words, that settles it." Creationists miss the forest for the trees. This flood nonsense isn't nearly the most interesting theological discussion to have about Matthew 24. Nate Keaton (talk) 13:05, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
More thoughts on this BMcP - it seems to me that it is likely you grew up in an evangelical household and are probably no longer involved in your family's faith? Is that close? I know you're not saying it is this way, but fundamentalists do miss that interpretation of Genesis 1 doesn't start with what you want to be true. There are very good reasons to doubt God was doing anything but being allegorical. I find it sort of funny to consider that if He was speaking of actual history, that He would make the story so difficult to identify as actual history because my understanding is you have to interpret key words in Genesis one in novel or unusual ways for it to be what creationists want it to be. I have seen a well-informed lay Christian scholar's analysis of some creationist claim about Genesis. I think it was AiG's or CMI's. This guy shattered their lies and wishful thinking.

Marksman is quite likely a parodist, as are most other active non-sysops on Conservapedia.

Anyone know why (apart from obvious ignorance) he's going on about ex cathedra? Does anyone want to tell him that gravity, the earth not being flat and the sun at the centre of the solar system haven't been pronounced ex cathedra? In his own way is he trying to say that concepts that the world is flat, the sun revolves around us and we stick to the ground due to actions of invisible gremlins are the Catholic Church's position on these matters? -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 07:34, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

One of Ken's little conceits is spelling "Brenden" "Brendon." I've always thought it's like "the Democrat party," a childish insistence on using a corrupted name for your enemy. Apparently AlanE felt so too. Ken's response is weird, even for him. Kind of that Brenden is such a worm Ken wouldn't be expected to spell it correctly. Or something.

Andy is, was, and ever will be a creature of pure self worshipping spite and pettiness. At this point he is honestly incapable of seeing those who disagree with him as human, and universally views them as soulless degenerates who exist only to hate all that is "good and conservative", as evidenced by the fact they dont utterly submit to his insane and ever mutating dogma, since he is the paragon of holiness, goodness, logic, and wisdom they must be evil and decietful scumbags by default as they could not "possibly" disagree with him. Thus since he happens to like fathers day at this very moment, all filthy liberals must hate it simply because they hate all that is good and thus hate anything andy likes. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 09:15, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
I honestly wonder if there's room on the Internet for a "Fake Andy Schaffly" blog, whereby someone posts the exact opposite of what Andy likes/hates this month, but phrased as he would. For example, "The secular holiday of Father's Day continues to drive non-believers away from the Bible and biblical truth. Instead of sending your father a card, why not send Him a card instead?

Cheater, cheater.. pumpkin eater[edit]

If anyone remembers the shameful display of Andy and others trying to calculate countries that legalized same-sex marriage will do worse in the Olympics, it's revived a bit. The whole notion that religious people perform better and the gays don't is distorted all over the place with cherry-picked percentages and other opinionated shit. Andy's trying to compare Canada's performance before and after with hilarious results (a shaky "decline of 6%") to prove himself right. Three years, one day... what's the difference?img AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 17:17, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

It actually says medals won by countries that allowed same sex marriage fell by 6%. Of course, South Africa is arbitrarily excluded. If South Africa were included there would be no change. Bizarrely, Canada's pre-same sex marriage medal count is averaged between 2004 and 2008 (12 and 18, respectively) on the basis that same sex marriage became legal "effective in late July 2005". Yet, in Spain it became legal on July 3, 2005, 17 days before Canada, and only the 2004 medal count is given. Furthermore, Norway legalized same sex marriage Jan. 1, 2009, way after Canada, but only the 2004 medal count is given.
I'm beginning to suspect Andy is using dubious statistical methods.... --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:05, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
I saw gay people in a club on TV once and they all looked a lot more ripped than any of the CP users I've seen photos of. Seriously though, it's an odd concept to hold on to. "Gays are girly and thus not aggressive" I can at least understand as a stereotype, so I can see how he'd claim that they wouldn't be good at straight up competitive events, but a lot of the olympics are individual scores being set and the highest winning (gymnastics, field events, some of the track events, all the time trials etc...) and even most of the actively competitive ones are more about being fitter than the opposition rather than more aggressive. Just seems like an oddly specific thing to latch onto; he's basically saying "gays are unfit", which is the exact opposite of every stereotype and cliché I've ever heard. I mean, I get that he's just doing his "gays are bad therefore they're bad at everything" shtick like he does with atheism and liberals but... I guess I'm just overthinking it. X Stickman (talk) 22:10, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
Andy doesn't have hyphotheses. He has insights. That's why he needs a better kind of statistics to verify them. Next thing Norseman will discover the perfect geometric fit of the conservative word curve doesn't hold up either. Whoover (talk) 22:11, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
Identifying "gays as girly" seems to be a prime example of the toupee fallacy. For every effeminate gay man, or butch lesbian, there is probably another who does not fit the stereotype. That's why it's usually turned into an issue when a major football or rugby star comes out. Redchuck.gif ГенгисevolvingModerator 00:46, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
He's making a statement about the societies, not the athletes. I don't think he really conceives of gay athletes -- besides, not even his "logic" can make the leap from gay marriage to more gays. For Andy, it's a sign of societal decay, one symptom of which surely is poor performance in endeavors that require total dedication and focus. It's the same reason he knows that all great sports stars are home-schooled Christians and the other ones are overrated by a liberal press pushing a secular agenda along with the homosexual one.

PRISM: How Obama's evil communist plot was acheived[edit]

"This is great stuff. I could make a career out of this guy! You see how clever his part is? How it doesn't require a shred of proof? Most paranoid delusions are intricate, but this is brilliant!"

Apparently PRISM is how Obama made himself in to a natural born citizen despite being an evil Kenyan Muslim. It's how he made Republicans offer halting support for some brand of immigration reform. It's how he controls the supreme court. It's the tea party conspiracy phlebotinum!

I just love this part from him, ""Many people may think this data mining by our government is essential for the security and safety of our country and would only be dangerous if it fell into the wrong hands. In case you missed it, it has."". Or in other words, republicans listening to us - GOOD, VERY GOOD. Demcrats listening to us, and also as it happens to republicans, BAD, VERY VERY BAD. The only difference is that now the NSA are listening to the tea partiers rather than listeining to those who were telling the truth about the Bush lies that took the US and the UK to war in Iraq. It was ok to listen top us, it not when they are the ones being listened to. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:23, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
According to Terry & Co., Obama is all powerful and able to control the government through his nefarious surveillance and data mining operations. Meanwhile, back in reality, he can't get legislation he wants passed or stop leaks of information.
Looking at this more broadly, PRISM is brilliant as a grand unified conspiracy theory. It doesn't require space reptiles, the Trilateral Commission, or the Freemasons to be in charge. Only THEM, who are watching you. Godspeed (talk) 17:26, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
This is what I hate about much of the opposition to PRISM. PRISM should be opposed, it should be halted on constitutional grounds alone.

Political Correctness, Wingnut Edition[edit]

Mental retardation is too easily used as an insult, hurled at people of normal intelligence who act like morons. That's why we're constantly changing the favored euphemism for people who actualy suffer from it. "Retard," "moron," "imbecile" and "idiot" are all impolite, even with a clinical meaning intended. "With special needs" seems to be the most accepted euphemism today, even though that could as easily apply to a sex addict. Surprisingly, the usually reflexively anti-euphemism PC brigade has become very sensitive to this issue. Even the term "mentally retarded" is now hate speech. We skipped insensitivity completely and moved directly to criminality. Whoover (talk) 17:11, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Criminality? Fortunately the country Maher and I live in, one cannot be prosecuted for saying something, someone, somewhere, at some point in time deems as "hate speech"; thank FSM for the First Amendment.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:11, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
That's really for the accusers of the hate speech to assert and the courts to decide. The SCOTUS has held that hate speech which intends to trigger violence is criminal. I can't imagine saying that referring to a child with mental retardation as mentally retarded is hate speech, so I have no idea how someone who would make the claim might justify it. Considering the usual wingnut hysteria, it would not surprise me if they call this a threat on poor Track's life. But since I'm better than that, and they haven't yet, I'll agree that they're just calling it hate speech. Whoover (talk) 20:15, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
I think "retard" just needs to be taken back and used to describe mentally competent individuals who act like dumbshits (or, perhaps, those who act to "retard" the efforts and progresses of others). Also, why is this discussion on Talk:WIGO:CP? --Seth Peck (talk) 20:21, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Markman as Nuanced Parodist[edit]

Greatest Conservative Songs has been a favorite of mine since "YMCA" spent six months on their chart while Andy insisted it was a sincere ode to the Christian Association and its values. Finally, someone let the gang in on the joke, and the song was quietly deleted. Great stuff.

Now Markman, fresh from stomping on the Torah and dancing on graves, mines this rich opportunity. We've discussed his dissing of Ted Nugent as liberal, but today he's given us two conservative anthems. Brimful of Asha is about the fantasy world of Bollywood, which allows Indians to survive their repressive society. To Markman, it's about big government. Even better, the Ramones' "53rd & 3rd" displays the apparently Christian fervor of a gay prostitute slitting his john's throat. Conservative Values don't get any better than that. Whoover (talk) 03:06, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Andy, Snowden, and Russia[edit]

Something tells me that Andy's love for Mother Russia is about to get stronger. I remember hearing young Reds in the 80s being told: "Well, why don't you just move to Russia, then?"

Not only that, Andy is trying to pit Obama directly against Snowden as if it were some personal agenda.

Andy has actually surprised me here for the first time in quite a while. I'm trying to wrap my brain around this whole "government approved" criticism. Conservatives are against the government having to approve things like pesticides, so it seems his logic that use of such chemicals that aren't approved of by governments is good, but as soon as the government says "it's OK, this one's safe" they're suddenly bad. And I'm pretty sure irrigation water isn't fluoridized, so I don't see what that has to do with anything. DickTurpis (talk) 18:15, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Andy also added 'creativity' to the list. I love his definition: "an ability, unique to God and his likeness, to make something from nothing"img.

Mystery solved???[edit]

On a hunch, I searched for <schlafly beer organic> and found that Andy's cousins are brewing at least three kinds of organic beer (I didn't bother going beyond the first page of results) and have a sideline in organic vegetables. I heard that Andy is a shareholder in the Schlafly Brewery so maybe saying organic = conservative is just covering his options: "yes, I do like organic, but the profit-making kind of organic, not the lib'rul hippy kind." Too cynical? Cardinal Fang (talk) 20:51, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

In #12 they wash their hands of Andy and the old hag pretty well. I guess if they're publicly traded Andy could own stock and still be "unconnected" in any meaningful way, but I sort of doubt he's terribly invested in a company that clearly wants no association with him, and which makes beer. DickTurpis (talk) 21:37, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
If Obama can have a beer even though he's a Muslim (the CP link is out there somewhere), surely Andy can invest in a beer company even though he comes off as an uptight prig? If I knew the way/I would take you home. 21:47, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
This is so weird. I admit I'm working from very hazy memory here, but I could've sworn this FAQ page only mentioned Phyllis Schlafly a couple of years ago.

That seems familiar to me as well. I recall someone posting a link to their website many years back; I think it was 2007 even.

DickTurpis (talk) 22:12, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

"Great stuff guys." I reckon that the Conservative Bible Project pissed off conservatives and practically everything else Andy and his Mum do pisses off lib'ruls, so it makes good sense for the Brewer-Schlaflys to distance themselves from their Fruitcake-Schalfly relatives.

Markman's Continuing Cry for Help[edit]

His latest one and two Greatest Conservative Songs are favorites of Israeli Neo-Nazis. The second one, about impregnating a woman with the Semen of Fire, is about the merits of war to Markman.

The coolest thing about these, and the ode to corporal punishment and others by the Ramones, is that he's classifying them as Spirituals.

Wow. It's still up there. If that's what counts as parody, Bugler starts looking like a good faith editor. None so blind as those who will not see, eh Andy, et al? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 13:57, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
IIRC from the days of TZB, they feel that one of our tactics is to try and drive a wedge between the various sysops and sysop lites. Ironically, I think it was TK who kept saying that, whilst doing exactly that. Therefore, the more we point out that Markman is a parodist, the stronger his credentials are on CP... PsyGremlin말하십시오 14:20, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Heh, the sad thing is we really do have their best interests at heart. It really would be better at CP if they didn't keep promoting aggressive arseholes, and if they demoted Kendoll so he couldn't do so much damage. But then again, Andy shouldn't need us to tell him. His first experience with a boot licking psycho should have taught him not to trust them, but he will insist on making the same mistake over and over and over... --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 15:36, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
I don't really care what people do when they're over there stirring shit. I'm not going to get in Brenden's grill for being an obsequious hall monitor. Markman can butcher their "bible" and treat other editors worse than TK if he wants. It's all on Andy and his lackeys. I do care that the site has substantial enough traffic that there's a certainty that at least some kids are looking at it. Markman crossed the line. Andy and Karaturd won't do anything about it.

The reason why I come of to you as an unfunny parodist is because I ain't no parodist.

What is he trying to prove exactly? That Freethought Blogs, which certainly isn't the center of atheism on the web, is more popular that Answers In Genesis and Creation Ministries? Despite one site is just a bunch a blogs and the other represents people actually trying to have a museum and theme park? Or that Reddit's traffic remains about the same over the last year and that somehow refutes or because of atheism, despite 99% of Reddit having nothing to do with the subject, and that there are as many Christian subreddits? --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:19, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
I don't get it. Such and such group's traffic is plunging. Except it's relatively stable, or if it's down, it's down a small amount that's less than the creationist outfit Ken is comparing it to. Or it's a trivial fluctuation while traffic trends upward. But it's never what Ken actually says it is. Ken - it doesn't help to actually post the graphs when you launch into that kind of fucking embarrassing hyperbole stop lying so much. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 13:38, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
He's not trying to 'prove' anything - certainly not in any sense of the word 'prove' that a rational person would understand. He doesn't understand the concept of proof - he just goes through the eternal spin cycle of atheism, religion, money, chicks with long hair, pull some random figures together, therefore conservatism rocks. He doesn't care what the actual facts are, where they come from, or what they mean, only that they seem vaguely relevant to what he has already decided is the truth. The guy is a total tool. Worm (talk) 14:14, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
What he wants to believe is the evidence. Everything else must concur by default. So even if it says the exact opposite, it still supports his belief. Otherwise known as blind faith. I really don't think it's any more complicated than that. Ajkgordon (talk) 14:36, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
User:Godspeed and I were talking about this last week. He doesn't think it's necessarily fair to interpret Ken's conduct as deceitful. I can't see it as anything but. Do I understand correctly that you're with Godspeed, Ajkgordon? I honestly don't understand how that works as an epistemological position. It's hard to accept it as self-deception a la akrasia when he's constantly reminded that he's wrong on the facts and that his rhetorical strategy is cowardly and dishonest. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 15:22, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
I didn't see that discussion. I think you're over-thinking it. Ken has been doing this for years, decades even. It's hard wired, his thoughts ossified. I would wager he became convinced of this stuff years before he had any evidence for or against. Now he can only see evidence for. He doesn't have the imagination to think that anything else can be the truth. He never questions, only repeats. It's dogma, ideology. There is no room for any understanding. OK, I'm not totally sure about this because he does seem to be actually analytical about some things in his moments of lucidity. But his simplistic and dichotomous conservative vs liberal and creationist vs evolutionist stances are just thoughtless mantra, like an automaton. I'm not sure many of his writings would even pass a Turing Test. Actually that would be quite interesting! Ajkgordon (talk) 16:22, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Does Andy know nearly everything he says in public is premised on falsehoods? How does all this work? Magnets. Etc. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 20:47, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
I think there's a bit more to it than that. Like you said, he's been doing this for years, so he's become so invested in his various causes that he can't back down. I break it down in a few ways:
  • His taunting and name calling and general childishness for a man pushing 60 is all justified, in his mind, because he's right. He HAS to be right, or otherwise he's been an asshole this entire time and all the editors he's blocked are better than him.
  • Look at all the time he puts into Conservapedia and his blog. Who wants to hear that what they've been doing for the better part of a decade has just been one long sit on the toilet shitting into the internet?
He's so invested in his position it leads to a bias that spins anything positively, or barring that dismisses information for any number of trivial reasons (Liberal! Lacks Macheesmo!). This allows him think what he thinks with little cognitive dissonance. But this mental jujitsu comes with a price; since he dismisses anything so easily, he's similarly afraid of having the same tactic used against him. Thus his obsession on anonymity, memory holing, and an insistence on ideological purity.
TLDR: He's a dick and he knows he's a dick. Shakedangle (talk) 17:31, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

It's a holy war for him - he's built an entire worldview on a house of cards and the only solution is to go forward, ever forward. I've got conspiracy theorist friends who endlessly double down in the same manner, regardless of the lunacy required. Semipenultimate 17:52, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Maybe more to it, but I don't think so. Just look at the way he writes. I've never seen writing like that. It's all automatic. There's no thought, no reflection. It's not just the grammar and the clumsiness. It's the repetitive nature of it all, even within the same post, even the same sentence sometimes. It's like writing by numbers. The man is a Pavlov experiment gone horribly wrong. It's pure pre-determined reaction. And if he doesn't have a relevant off-the-shelf answer or quip, then he uses one that's an approximate fit. Or even no fit at all. We've all seen it countless times. It's very very intricate, of course, like many conspiracy theories. But it's still just salivating when the bell rings. Ajkgordon (talk) 18:55, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I was addressing more his inability to acknowledge any information contrary to his position. His writing style is a whole other bag of piss. I think his repetitiveness comes from what has "worked" for him in the past, which amounts to throwing shit at your conversation partner until they've had enough. Like you say, just copy, paste, and ignore, rinse repeat. Shakedangle (talk) 19:14, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
So what would that be in Orwellese - Duckwrite? Vomitype? Semipenultimate 19:26, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
For the rest of us it is Doublethought duckwrite, for Ken it is Goodthink pornotype. Shakedangle (talk) 21:15, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
'Goodthink Pornotype' sounds like an early-70s Bond girl name. Gah, I just pictured Ken in drag! Brain bleach! Semipenultimate 21:19, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Hmmmm, since my name's been brought up here, I should probably say I don't attribute Ken's blatherings to deceit because I don't think he's capable of deception in the way the rest of us are, not in any real sense. He's some combination of mentally ill and mentally retarded. If he went to school today (at least if he went to a public school, rather than being home schooled) he would take up much of the support staff's time, and they would have him in counseling and remedial classes and probably on medication. If Ken is really past middle age, he went to school before all of that, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least to find that he was in special ed. He may be fooling himself, but that's about it. I don't feel comfortable talking about him for that reason: It's like making fun of the kid who rides the short bus to school. Andy is another story: Much/most/(all?) of what he says seems to be driven by resentment of "liberal elites"--which he views as a large and all-powerful group. Mommy Dearest first came to prominence when she wrote A Choice, Not an Echo during the Goldwater presidential campaign in 1964. Andy is his mother's son. If you're interested in why Andy's so fucked up, you could Rick Perlstein's book on the begining of the post-war American conservative movement: Before the Storm. Godspeed (talk) 23:01, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Reams of crap that make a lot of sense to the author but nobody else, produced in fitful, sleepless bursts certainly reminds me of my bipolar friends. There are possible links with dyslexia and other learning disorders as well. Of course you can't diagnose by remote control but I don't see evidence for retardation. I do see evidence of a mental disorder. Whoover (talk) 23:44, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
I'm with Godspeed here. Both Ken and PJR are very religious people and I'm fairly sure do not deliberately tell a lie - or rather what they think is a lie - there is probably some inner rationalization that convinces them that they are not being dishonest. To be an in-your-face creationist requires a special sort of stupid and cognitive dissonance, and what we might see as dishonesty is something else in their warped worldview. I'm sure many people are creationists because they are both indoctrinated and ill-educated but there must be something else going on when apparently well-educated people reject all the contrary scientific evidence in a many different fields and weld their life to the literal interpretation of one ancient book. As for Ken (who is nearer 50 than 60), then it's fairly obvious to all that he is not normal, even by creationist standards. I reckon he's of average intelligence (not smart, but there again not retarded) but driven by his faith. The evidence certainly points towards some sort of bipolar disorder and, given his editing habits and history, some sort of OCD. It also wouldn't surprise me if he suffered from some mild epilepsy. And in response to Ajkgordon's analogy for Ken's writing, I think it is more akin to a Skinner box experiment.

Gentlemen, Re: your delusions and obsessions

First, in my high school chemistry class, I obtained the highest score on the state exam. The last science course I took at an institution of higher learning, if memory serves and I believe it does, I earned an A (or a B at the very least). So this tripe that I don't understand basic scientific principles and don't have a grasp on basic scientific knowledge is pure fantasy on your part.

Second, as far as your obsession about my intelligence level, based on correlations with various metrics (such as my college entrance exam score) my IQ falls somewhere in the top 1-2% of the general public. I really don't care what it is though. Your obsessions about this matter perked my curiosity and caused me too examine various correlations with IQ via some quick online searches though. Gentlemen, your attempts to make me dumber in your minds, doesn't make you smarter! Furthermore, your personal attacks fail to make the content of my articles any less true.

Third, your obsession on the status of my mental health is rather ironic, don't you think? I certainly think so and I am not alone in this matter. When I tell people the extent of your obsession about me and this wiki they often laugh and say how odd they think you all are. Gentlemen, your attempts to make me mentally ill in your minds, does not make you more well adjusted! On top of this, I have indicated that I may have let other people use this account. I will let you be the judge if I found some of your past psychological profiling of some of the editing of this wiki account rather humorous.
I don't much care if you're mentally ill or not, Ken (although the evidence is certainly pointing that way.)

Dear gawd, Conservapedia and his own insignificant blog are the only places that give his life any purpose or meaning, and we, we are his only audience, watching only out of macabre interest and to mock. Yet, if you think about it we are the closest thing he has to any real social interaction, the closest thing he has to friends. Think about that for a moment. Sure you can say he has ShockOfGod and VivaYashua, but while they may share his goals, they certainly don't give him any real measure of their time and certainly no influence, and they certainly don't hang with him or respect him. Yeah, neither do we, but we do give him the most attention out of anyone he knows. In a way Ken needs Rationalwiki, that is why he so desperately begs for our attention on the front page of CP with his poorly thought out inflammatory statements; we are the only people he really "talks" to and he doesn't want to lose us.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:22, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

I have been such a hypocrite about this. I completely agree with ToP and lost sight of how pointless and cruel it is to goad an unwell man into shaming himself for our pleasure. I feel tremendously sorry for Ken in particular. Andy's beyond help and, I think, far more intelligent than Ken to the point that he's making affirmative choices where Ken is blinded by his desperate need to believe in what he subconsciously knows is an unsupportable dogma. You can't fit the square peg of reality into that round hole. There's no sport or positive energy in this. Dissing the retarded kid for acting like a moron has been weighing on my conscience and actually making me feel badly throughout the day without knowing why. Why am I drawn to look at this page and participate in discussing the insanity of a highly reactive and mentally disturbed nobody. I'm sure I'll slide back into being a raging hypocrite, but at least I had another moment of clarity. Thanks for helping me work this out over the last week, ToP.

Yes, I think this is right. But we've been talking about ignoring him for years. The best I think we can do is agree that there is something not quite right about him and leave it at that with no more pop analysis. His writing should simply be patiently and repeatedly refuted for the benefit of anyone who might, on the off chance, be taken in by it. Still, this site isn't alone in being quick to mock him. He's a mockery magnet because of how he writes and what he writes. But at the end of the day it's ad hominem and should be resisted. Ajkgordon (talk) 14:46, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

And it would make no difference. I used to debate universal healthcare with a Christian woman on another forum.

She had maxed out on her insurance benefits, maxed out on what Medicaid could provide, and was only still alive because she finally qualified for Medicare under some kind of disability provision. Yet, despite owing her continued existence to socialized medicine, she was rabidly opposed to Obamacare and all other forms of universal healthcare reform.Tacitus (talk) 21:17, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
