Ken's started an article on Treblinka[edit]

[1]imgThis should be interesting. His perspective on a place that is not well documented due to only a handful of survivors. It goes along side his new masterpiece, Adolf Hitler's homosexual goons[2]img Dangerous territory Ken, you are bound to upset people.--Mercian (talk) 20:05, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

He lives for bothering people, especially here. He's clearly out to prove once and for all that Hitler was a liberal evolutionist. Being gay is a symptom. Whoover (talk) 21:49, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Maybe he should ask Ed. He seems to be a fan of The Pink Swastika. CP seems to be getting ever more loathsome as it decays, it's like a machine to distil crazy juice over there. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:11, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Fundraiser[edit]

"An atheist wiki only met 17% of its winter fundraising goal despite the fact that winter is over in 13 days. Atheists are cheapskates![2] See: Atheism and uncharitableness"- On the main page.-ZeroIsLogic (talk) 04:53, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Like I said on the fundraiser page, he pulled the same lame stunt for attention last fundraiser. We rolled our eyes just the same. Especially since that bar only moves when Stabby updates it. Hell, the fundraiser could be over 100% finished right now, but we wouldn't know it because our treasurer's in his jammies watching reruns of Doctor Who--"Shut up, Brx." 04:57, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Plus, the fundraiser has been running for like three days, not all winter. Apparently liberals deny but conservatives lie. Whoover (talk) 05:17, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Patriots Rally for Freedom.png
When I saw the bar yesterday, I was wondering how long it would take for Ken to make some shit up. Ken, it's been running for three days. Maybe you should have a look at the Tea Party Community, where they've raised a massive $770 (out of $8,000) in 2 weeks, for the Patriots Rally for Freedom... and they've only got a week left to meet their target. A whole 27 people, out of 150,000 registered on the site have donated. If you're looking for cheapskates... or maybe it's because the TP is full of inbred, penniless hillbillies. PsyGremlinSermā! 06:10, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
He does this shit every time, and every time he never acknowledges when we actually make our goal. He's such a breathtakingly dishonest douchenozzle. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 14:59, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

If andy wants to 'trim' a bunch of ken's crap he would need to delete almost his entire hate blog wiki. Oldusgitus (talk) 17:41, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Shouldn't that be "wiki hate blog"? Spud (talk) 05:35, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the reminder Ken. I made my donation this morning. StarFish (talk) 11:38, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
Update: The TPC have managed to raise another $5, in the time we've raised $1,000. Good to see all those generous conservatives donating to a cause they believe in. PsyGremlinSermā! 13:35, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

CP vs. WP, many years on[edit]

I seem to recall Andy saying in the early days of Conservapedia that it was growing much faster than Wikipedia was at the same stage. It might have been true at the time, as WP didn't have the publicity that CP was getting, and no one knew what a wiki was in 2001. But more than 7 years on it's clear his exponential growth has long since petered out. Can anyone out there do a comparison at where both projects were at their 88 or so month point? (Larron, I'm looking in your general direction here). I'd be curious to see specific figures on just how poorly CP has fared. DickTurpis (talk) 18:33, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Why not just come straight out with it: " Hey, LArron, will you ..." Scream!! (talk) 19:23, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Needn't be him, but I admit he is the most likely candidate. Perhaps I will drop him a note later. DickTurpis (talk) 19:28, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

--larron (talk) 21:54, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for this, LArron. It's pretty clear that CP was a ghetto from the start. After a short initial burst of interest, it's been abandoned for all intents and purposes. Where WP was roughly 109 times larger after 7 years, CP barely doubled. What conclusions can we draw from this? I think CP was theoretically a good idea. Principled conservatives could have done something acceptable with it. To me, the current state of affairs stands for the abject poverty of Schlafly and his goon's perversion of "conservatism". Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:19, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
I find it interesting that the annual increase has been so constant since the first burst finished. While that would corroborate well with the idea of a small cabal creating most of the mainspace articles, I was under the impression that most of the cabal in power doesn't do much of the article creation shtick (except Ken, of course). - Grant (Talk) 04:16, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Comparing entries on WP with CP is comparing "articles" to "farticles". Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? Moderator 10:27, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Well of course. I'm just surprised that CP managed to put out such a consistent number of new farticles (up until this year) despite how much the internal power structure has rocked back and forth over the years. - Grant (Talk) 15:54, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lot LArron, your work is always terrific. Now, I assume the CP "articles" includes stuff like essays, debates, mysteries, lectures, homeworks, etc., right? And WP is just mainspace articles (since they actually create separate namespaces instead of just putting a word and a colon in front of a regular article)? DickTurpis (talk) 12:05, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

600 essays, 400 debates, 50 mysteries, 80 lectures, 1200 homeworks... --larron (talk) 20:29, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
So CP has 37,995 content pages which are actually considered as articles. - Bill Rawls (talk) 22:12, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Probably fewer. I was just doing a random pages sample test to see what the articles are (for some reason I lost the ability to access CP in the middle of it; still waiting for it to come back). There are other non-articles that aren't so easy to separate out, like dictionary definitions, lists of terms, disambiguation pages, and stuff like substubs, which hardly qualify as articles (especially those Ed Poor gems). Certainly WP has some of these as well, but they seem to be a higher proportion of CP entries. I'll see what I can find. DickTurpis (talk) 22:54, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
60% of the articles have fewer than 1000 bytes, 26% fewer than 100 bytes (redirects are not included.) Lots are just templates describing (insufficiently) birds or battles. --larron (talk) 22:57, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Whence Roger?[edit]

From Brother Roger: New Cosmos TV show is anti-religion propaganda. Instead of real science, the first episode of the Carl Sagan remake emphasizes the obscure medieval monk Bruno, claims that he was persecuted for believing in an infinity worlds just like Earth, and argues that he was proved right by the multiverse.img

Of course, no such claim was made. Although "multiverse" was mentioned somewhere in the episode, Bruno's "contribution" was merely opining that the sun was one star among many and the Earth one world among many. Bruno was no scientist and the segment was sort of a waste of time, but I thought Tyson went out of his way (or was ordered out of his way) to give religion lip service. He mentioned the dates of "birth" for Moses, Jesus and Mohammed. (Maybe that last mention is what really got Schlafly's goat.) In any case, I know he thinks Einstein was a quack. Is he YEC? Is he an anti-science scientist? Is he to physics as Andy is to law? Or is he just hatin' on Tyson for some reason I can't possibly imagine but has nothing to do with race? Whoover (talk) 20:53, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Roger's always been slightly more pro-science than Andy - look at the times he's torn Andy a new one over relativity. But that doesn't make him any less of a gibbering idiot. He posted somewhere that Einsteim was just "a poster boy for E=mc2 and his fight with Dinsdale over the Trail of Tears, shows that he has ideas just as reprehensible as Andy's. PsyGremlinSermā! 21:19, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
Thats the funny thing about conservapedia. Compared to the omnibigotted and omnihateful shitstains who make up the "tru believing" inner circle, even Rick Santorum would look a tower of reason and progressive ideals if he visited. Since Roger does not make it his mission to reject ALL scientific principles, theories, and observations simply because he has arbitrarily decided "science is evil and liberal and thus super duper evil", he is indeed miles above his brother....and thus still somewhere below the bottom of the barrel. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 04:36, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Beer War to provide RW readers some entertainment in coming months[edit]

This should be fun to watch. With Andy representing his own mother in court, there should be plenty of gibberish being thrown about. DogP (talk) 17:54, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Another Fantasy Conspiracy[edit]

Another player who fled communism joins Major League Baseball, but the lamestream media conceal that fact.img The cited article mentions (of course) that he's Cuban. Is the lamestream media concealing that Cuba is communist? That Cubans who make millions playing ball are not good communists? That baseball's been bery bery good to him?

Is making up shit to get angry about because it feels good a definition of paranoia, or is it a more general symptom of various mental pathologies? Whoover (talk) 16:26, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

I think it's just motivated thinking reinforcing hatred of the "other". Steven Novella just remarked on a study of anti-vax parents being confronted with various messages about vaccination. It turns out that even mentioning that there are no risks has a significant effect on further souring these parents. The study didn't reach this point, but the authors speculated that it actually caused them to somehow feel compelled to justify their position. I wonder if this kind of motivated thinking extends to someone being able to message himself — how does one convince oneself of the truth of objectively false claims? Terry Hurlbut's claims about various UN policies, birth certificates and his misrepresentations of the constitution and natural law, Obama being the first president to arm scads of new federal officers so he can create a secret army, etc. also come to mind. I've shown him that he was absolutely dead wrong on some of his legal claims and all he did was stop responding, just like Andy, only to go and repeat the false claim some other time. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 18:26, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
I used to be a bit of a left wing nut who believed in some minor conspiracy theories - in fact I still am a left wing nut. But this lot really stump me. I simply do not understand how it is that they can be shown to be wrong time and time and time again. On points of law, science, religion and just about everything they 'stand for' and they still refuse to admit they are wrong about anything. I wonder, deep down, does terry know he's spent his entire life wrong about so many things? But to admit it now would be to blow his carefully constructed facade of victimhood to pieces. It must be hard to be a red-neck conservative failure. And to know that it's fundamentally all your fault, you simply aren't good enough at anything. So he has constructed this liberal conspiracy that is keeping them down and they HATE us for it. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:10, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
Terry still believes he's going to be God-Emperor of Aynistan when it all goes down because of his Generator. He's too far gone to realize he's ever been wrong. --Revolverman (talk) 01:49, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Speaking of conspiracies, that's some Thunderball shit right there...[edit]

Terry and Co.'simg theory on where Malaysian 370 went is that Iranian terrorists hijacked it, flew it to their secret volcano lair and plan to turn it in to a giant nuclear missile. I'll give them this, as crazy as they are they still come up with better plots for James Bond books than the people who are actually writing them now. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:17, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Honestly with such breathtaking naivete and puppy-like acceptance of what his peers say and write, how the fuck does Terry think he will cow the masses under his generator-powered heel after the obamageddon? I have never heard it argued that being a cringing doormat is the trait of a future mad-max style warlord. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 04:32, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Terry doubles down on his conspiracy theory. Now it's not just a possibility, it was definitely hijacked by evil islamists and flown to their volcano lair for use as a human guided missile. It's always fun watching them evolve a whole new strain of crazy then convince themselves their wild speculation is the truth. Gives a nice insight in to how they come to believe so much garbage. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:45, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

They'll be playing catch-up. Whoover (talk) 23:07, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Jeeves, it seems to be just a case of taking the line that anything is possible and then just picking the one that best suits your dogma/paranoia/prejudices. As a conspiracy theory, it's not that outlandish. It seems quite possible that somebody could plot something like this - steal an airliner mid-flight and then use it later as a guided missile of some sort. Sure, there are lots of technical difficulties but it's feasible in principal. There are 101 other things that could have happened too but this one is much more appealing to that type of mind. You're right, it's an interesting insight. What always surprises me though is how someone who's reasonably well educated can keep believing these wishful-thinking fantasies when they've been shown to be nothing but fiction so many times before. Is it just the trip he gets from being *taps nose* in on the secret? Ajkgordon (talk) 09:18, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

There's one slightly newsworthy thing there. He left the critical comment about him there for five days. It looks like he took a brief break from being a twat. Spud (talk) 11:12, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Presumably he didn't notice, the fact he's burnt it is pretty good evidence in my view. --A Real Libertarian (talk) 21:22, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Now the whole revision where he deleted the comment is gone, and the actual deletion is merged with the next diff so it looks like PeterKa did it while he was adding the Malaysian Plane section. I don't know much about wikis, but I thought that wasn't how they were meant to be used. Minoreditor (talk) 22:54, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
Yeah well, we don't have oversight so I don't think ay of us understands it that well, but I reckon it's like hiderevision and that Ken knows how to use it about as well as any of us does. Which is not that well. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:52, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Classic Ken-Doll[edit]

Bestiality too, what with the dog in the bedroom. Just need to add obesity for Ken to claim a full house. Cardinal Fang (talk) 12:47, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
But obesity is there. He wrote, "fat cat". What more could you ask for? Spud (talk) 13:57, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Probably pointless, but most people don't want to harm their pets, Ken. It's sort of the same reason I give the Canada geese that nest around our lakes a wide berth. They're nasty, disagreeable creatures, it hurts like hell when they get onto you, and I'd rather add 50-feet to a walk or run than have to fight and possibly kill one that's chosen a stupid place to have its offspring. Personally, I don't know how to subdue violent animals without harming them. I probably wouldn't call Animal Control and then 911 for a cat, but maybe a rottweiler or something. -- Ellipsoidal (talk) 14:06, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Ken wouldn't know what to do with a pet, just like he has no idea what to do with a real living person. He's the kind of person who would buy a guinea pig and then forget to feed it before wondering why it suddenly died one day. He has the social skills of a thing that has no social skills, which is why he still thinks Richard Dawkins, the man who managed to catch one of the most desirable Doctor Who side kicks of all time, somehow lacks machismo and is a failure with women whilst the completely heterosexual Ted Haggard is such a smash hit with all those lovable xian men ladies. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:04, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

No, that was Leela. This is Romana. Actually Romana II. Romana I was hotter but Romana II is out of the class of Ken's dreams as it is. For those who've missed it Romana II (actually the Honourable Sarah Ward aka Lalla Ward) was married to Tom Baker (the 4th Doctor). That marriage ended in divorce and she's been married to Richard Dawkins for over 20 years. The couple was introduced by Douglas Adams. This is as close to nerd royalty as it comes, and it eats Ken alive. Whoover (talk) 06:05, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
It must eat Ken alive that Ward is a charming, extremely intelligent, and extremely articulate person in her own right. No surprise that Ken can't even recognize that she's a human being. In his world, a woman is either a long haired creationist sweetheart who likes ponies, or she's a non-entity whose man must be ridiculed for his association with her. It's also odd that Ken calls Dawkins "elderly". It must just eat him up that Dawkins is 72 years old, yet he's not showing a bit of his age (if being elderly is even something worth nothing about an ideological enemy except as a hateful riposte). Dawkins still more productive and effective at continuing his role as a science educator than any of Ken's cult leaders will ever be. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 18:28, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

The cat was the boss in that household and the liberal 'man' was the biggest pussy in that household!" I guess he thinks us liberal atheists would be too thick to understand it otherwise.

Psygrimlin, why are liberals so intellectually slovenly? You are engaging in the fallacy of exclusion by conspicuously failing to mention that a user/users of the User:Conservative account will dance with a long haired creationist sweetheart in 2014. You have shown that you are intellectually dishonest and cannot adequately answer the 15 Questions which evolutionists cannot adequately answer and Shockofgod's question that atheists/evolutionists fear most. What proof and evidence do you have that atheism is true. I think we both know that you have none and that like all atheists/evolutionists posers you are not sincere in your atheism and are attempting to dilute the definition of your atheism. Why do you claim to hate God when you claim that you do not believe in God? I think we both know the answer. "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God." See HERE. "As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God." See HERE. You may safely be ignored.

Tis an interesting question whether Andy would have supported Putin had he invaded New Jersey/the east coast instead of Ukraine. Frankly his obsession with shrieking hatred against all things he deems liberal and the Negro Usurper who (in his mind) most epitomises these things, coupled with his decision to actively delude himself into thinking Putin epitomises all things conservative make me think that andy would pretty much be falling over himself to apply for the job of chief propagandist for the new order. Then again his cowardice would probably drive him to take refuge with other wingnut internet tough-guys/revolutionaries within Hurlbutt's basement. (and yes I know the invasion scenario is literally about as likely as Ed Poor becoming a steam-punk style cyborg and conquering the Moon with a legion of trained gerbils) Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 05:07, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Is this really the type of site CP wants to associate with?[edit]

A caption from the website placed next to a picture of Obama with a black baby reads "Even black babies hate Obama." This is even worse than when Andy supported apartheid.

No, andy's support of apartheid still ranks several thousand miles above this. Its in the same league as him voicing support for the KKK. Frankly the only other things he has said that match that in loathsomeness are his giggling displays of glee whenever someone who belongs to a group he despises dies, thus giving him a chance to triumphantly claim "hollywood/liberal/professor values" and dance on their graves, or pretty much everything he has said about women and why they are dumb untermench. At least ken has the "excuse" of being mentally ill. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 17:19, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
"Classic Internet humor" indeed. I'm fairly sure Ken's not an overt racist. I am certain he is so filled with hatred for more competent, intelligent, and influential people and groups than his hateful CMI cult bosses espousing his hateful religion of young earth creationism that he is blind to a source that reinforces his hateful biases also containing the kind of revolting racism he deceitfully ascribes to "evolutionists".

I like how it made a jab at Obama's skinny legs, referring to an image of him playing golf in which his legs were very obviously Photoshopped, yet includes another image from the same round of golf showing that Obama's actually got reasonably athletic legs for a guy who sits behind a desk all day. In any event, he's not built like a brick shithouse like Putin is, but to lie about the guy just to make 90 pound weakling jokes has got to be the bottom of the intellectual barrel.

Well I won't say it's impossible, but culture matters. For Putin, "as a result of these images some people West of Berlin think you're gay" is not important next to "as a result of these images lots of Russians think you're manly as fuck". I remember listening to an Italian woman explaining how it was possible for this odious little man Silvio Berlusconi to have many Italian women falling over themselves to support him, not just to get a pay day (which is understandable to us I think) but to support him politically even down to ordinary women voting for him rather than an opponent who promised them policies they supported. Berlusconi did things which resulted in non-Italians saying "This guy is a corrupt piece of shit, the Italians will surely rid themselves of him soon" but in Italy the reaction was "Wow, Silvio really showed those boring pencil-pushers what a real Italian man is like, I'm voting for him". Berlusconi understood that he needed Italian votes, not say, British press support. Likewise, Putin needs millions of Russians to believe he's the strong leader that will ensure Russia's continued importance in the world, and if a few million Americans think he's a lunatic, or a closeted homosexual or a space alien, that's not really a problem.
Now, if the briefings going to the White House said "This guy is actually a lunatic and might do anything" that's a real problem, because Russia has nuclear weapons. But so long as the director of the CIA is saying "This guy is a cold-hearted murderer, and I wouldn't trust him to babysit my kids, but he's sane" everything works out OK for Putin regardless of whether he's wearing a shirt. Tialaramex (talk) 21:57, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
Government propaganda in nations with free speech has to be sophisticated, since citizens or political opponents can point-and-laugh at it. Without that check the propaganda becomes INSANE. You get things like North Korea saying birds were mourning the death of Kim Jun Il, Iran photoshopping missile tests, or the bombastic "Comical Ali" claiming to journalists there were no American soldiers in Baghdad even though they could literally see them from where they were. Actually, the same idea applies to Conservapedia, where anyone who questions the sysops is banned. --Night Jaguar (talk) 23:48, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
Exactly. Hell you could almost think of free speech and a free press to act as a "constructive criticism" system to help governments not end up looking worse than Borat's Kazakhstan. In a state like russia with a near complete lack of freedom of the press and speech, Putin can get away with propaganda antics that would have David Cameron, Obama, and any western leader laughed out of office because there is not enough free media to point out how fucking pathetic it is for a world leader to strut about without a shirt trying to make himself look badass as if he were some online wannabe navy-seal.

The truth is that this latest discovery just made it more difficult for YECs to dismiss the Big Bang outright; they are already reduced to grudgingly admitting it happened but try to repaint the event as "look, the universe has a beginning, and Genesis said creation has a beginning! Ergo, the Bible is accurate in science and our god is true!"--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 21:22, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
I don't think YECs do that, do they? They just dismiss it completely. Non-YEC Christians have accepted the BB for a long time and lovingly show how it fits with the creation story. Which is OK. It's what LeMaitre did in the first place. Ajkgordon (talk) 22:46, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
Going by CNAV's response, it would appear terry is giving a very reluctant, grudging acceptance there was some sort of "Big Bang', but is trying to shoehorn it. (and the latest inflationary findings) into the genesis creation tale.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 17:54, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Actually no. LeMaitre didn't do that. The pope (Pius XII?) argumented along this lines, but Lematitre explicitly asked the pope not to use that line of reasoning. — Unsigned, by: 109.132.17.194 / talk / contribs

While it's true Lemaitre dissuaded the pope from using his theory as proof for God creating the universe, he often referred to the Big Bang as the moment of Creation. Ajkgordon (talk) 12:11, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
Just to expand on what I meant before. I love the Lemaitre story because it shows how educated intelligent Christians can see the beauty of God's creation without having to shoehorn scientific theory into their theology or reject scientific theory because it contradicts literal interpretations of scripture. It's what makes creationism so stupid - they literally rail against reality. Think outright denial on CP or the extraordinary intellectual gymnastics of the likes of PJR.

They see it as their constitutional right to make the lives of gays miserable. Freedom of religion is freedom, right?

He dreams of an America where the Kochs can do what they want just because. What would be wrong with one person, say Putin -- or Andy, being the single call a "job creator" has to make before doing some creatin'?

I don't know what plagiarized means here — some of these images are flat out stolen. I offered to help a couple who rely for their entire income on social security and what they earn from licensing candid photos of scenes from nearby cities they travel to. Joaquin flat stole one of their images. Stole. It. They felt that it was too much trouble to enforce their intellectual property rights to defend their livelihood. It made me sad. I would have been happy to press the issue since they were small business people. What's worse is that Joaquin misrepresenting the license status of some images may make them appear to be "available" to be freely copied, thereby making situations far worse for artists.

Well, the painting is from 1645. So the painting is public domain. But does the picture of the painting count as copyrightable? --A Real Libertarian (talk) 20:01, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
I'd be prepared to cut Joaquin some slack. It could just be he just does not understand all the copyright issues (I certainly do not) and perhaps assumes someone would tell him if he is doing some wrong or incorrectly. Unfortunately, the other pricks aren't going to put him right because that might mean some effort. AMassiveGay (talk) 20:37, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Yay and nay. Joaquin explicity states the image is public domain. The site itself explicitly states that images are copyrighted and protected by digital watermark. Either JM assumed the image was PD because the painting itself is so old and didn't bother checking, in which case he is a lazy copyright theif, or he checked and saw the copyright notice and ignored it, in which case he is no better than those who download from torrent sites. Now conservatives are supposed to be in favour of the rule of law and liberals aren't but he seems to care neither way.

A Reel Liberterien, You are an atheist poser and you are not being intellectually honest about your atheism. See Is Richard Dawkins an Intellectually Fulfilled Atheist? and of Richard Dawkins HERE (Agnositicism of Richard Dawkins). You have failed to point out a single error in any of my articles about your atheist religions of atheism and evolutionism, which is/are religions and you can be safely ignored. See HERE and here. Michael Ruse is a leading anti-creationist and atheists/evolutionists evolutionist and Michael Ruse admits that evolutionism is a religion. The atheists/evolutions Michael Ruse declared: "‘Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion—a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint—and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it—the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today." See HERE and HERE.
Finally, your armchair psychology is unconvincing and it is not surprising that an atheists/evolutionists thinks he has ESP! Regarding irreligion and atheism and superstition, the Wall Street Journal declared: "A comprehensive new study released by Baylor University yesterday, shows that traditional Christian religion greatly decreases belief in everything from the efficacy of palm readers to the usefulness of astrology. It also shows that the irreligious and the members of more liberal Protestant denominations, far from being resistant to superstition, tend to be much more likely to believe in the paranormal and in pseudoscience than evangelical Christians." See HERE. Why are atheists/evolutionists so illogical? Atheism is madness!

Seriously, How Does Andy Operate?[edit]

This is so typical that it's really not interesting, but I got to wondering about Andy's "approach" to facts.

"Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban predicts NFL implosion in 10 years." As the NFL increasingly becomes a tool of the liberal media, expect more empty seats at playoff games.img

Of course, the cited article says the opposite, that the unprecedented popularity of the NFL is leading to greed-induced overexposure.

My question: does Andy read these articles and ignore their contents, hoping his followers won't click through? This would be the "overtly dishonest" theory of MPR.
Or does he not even bother reading a citation, not wishing for any facts to interfere with a truthy fantasy? This might be characterized as the ADHD theory of MPR.
Or is he so far gone that he read the article but thought it was about the liberal media? The Ginger theory of MPR. Whoover (talk) 21:36, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

I actually know the answer to this one. Basically Andy thinks he possesses the ability to read through the "bias" and "spin", that liberals invariably insert into news articles, and is able to tease out the real Truth. He also claims he's able to do this with scientific papers as well. --Inquisitor (talk) 23:41, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Remember how he reacted to Super Bowl's record breaking ratings? Yes, anything that contradicts his worldview is liberal deceit. Vulpius (talk) 01:59, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Personally I theorize that he has long since come to the understanding that since he is the truest conservative on earth, his mind is divinely attuned to god himself and thus any (and every) thought, idea, and insight that his mind spews is the word of god and any piece of reality that disproves this is thus a satanic liberal lie. This is why I believe he defends his most groin-flayingly idiotic "insights" to the bitter end against all sanity and even fundie logic, since to admit defeat would be to confess he is not so divinely inspired. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 12:07, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
That's a pretty good definition of insanity. And I'm nicking "groin-flayingly idiotic" for use elsewhere,ta. Sphincter (talk) 16:13, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
We know that the right wing plays low information (and/or paranoid) readers. If you get your news from WND, NRO, Breitbart, etc, that's pretty much exclusively where you get your news. If they say something blatantly false, and any other news source debunks it, either it never gets back to the low information reader or it's never believed by the paranoid reader. On the other hand, I believe Andy still hopes that his readers don't click through, but for different reasons. As was said above, he's an expert at identifying liberal bias and his readers could become confused by the actual content of the article. I'm surprised that Andy even provides the link sometimes. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:19, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Best of the Public[edit]

The person universally considered the best baseball player in the world is now Best of the Publicimg. Snrub (talk) 11:22, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed the new genus of "Best of the Public": good baseball players from northern states, who are never drafted out of high school since they could not play during the winter months, but ultimately get paid $150 million. I assumed that meant Trout was a fundie, but I don't see any evidence. Focus on the Family had a Mike Trout, who crashed in a sex scandal. I wonder if Andy confused them? I have no idea what BotP means when applied to athletes. He doesn't have an advanced degree in outfielding? Whoover (talk) 17:02, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
Andy: Brains. It's good to have at least one. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:24, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
Best of the Public... Drafted right out of high school to the Los Angeles Angels. Andy says he was "overlooked by 24 teams" but he was still drafted in the first round (25th overall). That isn't some nobody who was picked up off the street, or some journeyman turned into an elite player, or a diamond in the rough found in the very late draft (like tom Brady, who Andy views as overrated but wasn't picked until the 6th round in football). this is an elite player seen as a professional baseball prospect while in high school. This guy has already done two years in the minors and three years in the majors, two of which as an all-star; he isn't some rookie, he is instead the definition of elite.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 09:27, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

All aboard the outrage train.[edit]

I see Ken, or at least CMI-by-proxy is outragedimg, OUTRAGED! that in uk hospitals they incinerate aborted foetuses. This is so bizarre I have no idea what to make of it. What are they supposed to do? Would they be less offended if the medical waste incinerator used didn't use the waste heat to power hot water system? How the hell is this any different to any other cremation? Isn't this exactly what happens in every country? I can't imagine any place that provides abortions gives the remains back to patient to dispose of themselves. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:26, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

You have to remember that in their minds this is exactly the same as ripping the baby from its mother's arms and tossing it onto a bonfire, whilst engaging in wild sexual orgies in front of an altar bearing the picture of Dawkins. Or maybe not - given the complete lack of interest the right have for a baby's welfare after it's born it's hard to say. They'd probably throw the mother on the bonfire for being a whore and have the baby sent to a special home where it's raised as free child labour in Koch Industries.
Whatever, as I said in the FB discussion on this - it's medical waste, of course it has to be burned. PsyGremlinSermā! 14:06, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
This is also an example of starkly black and white thinking that, were they interested in liasing with their coreligionists, extremists like CMI might consider avoiding. The great majority of "liberal evolutionists" are christians. They're just not the right kind of christians, so it's ok to ascribe all kinds of beliefs to them when you've really got no idea hat you're talking about. Good times. Nutty Rouxnever mind 14:18, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
In their minds, it's not "medical waste," it's a dead human body and, presumably, should be treated with the appropriate respect/reverence. Everyone remembers how Rick Santorum brought home his wife's miscarried fetus so that his/her siblings could see their baby brother/sister (I forget the sex ....) before the funeral, right? Someone who in their heart of hearts believes that abortion is no different from infanticide--and there are lots of folks who see things that way--is not going to accept treating an aborted fetus in the same manner as a removed appendix. Anti-choice activists are often working from a position based on a veneration of the human being -- typically, the human being as God's greatest creation. But even a secular person can maybe appreciate the central position of respect for human life, as they understand it, at the heart of the anti-abortion movement. To them, treating an aborted fetus like "waste" just makes what they see as an already profoundly dehumanizing process even more so. TeenageWasteland (talk) 14:41, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
They didn't just bring a corpse home to show their children. That alone would be creepy enough. No, they brought the corpse home and slept with it. According to Santorum, that wasn't just "some crazy thing." Let that sink in. That's how extreme adherents of this death cult carry on. Nutty Rouxnever mind 15:39, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
Look, I ain't saying there isn't some real weirdness at play here -- I mean, if Grandma died, would you bring that stiff home and sleep with it? -- I'm just saying that if one believes that aborting a fetus is no different from killing a day-old baby, then you can't really expect them not to be a little skeezed out when said fetus is treated no differently from a tumor or a bum gall bladder or something. TeenageWasteland (talk) 16:38, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
I have to agree with TeenageWasteland. If you believe that the aborted fetus is a child, then the idea of simply throwing the body into an incinerator like trash is abhorrent. To pro-lifers, it would be no different than dumping bodies without dignity into some open pit mass grave and just lighting it on fire and then using that to cook your food. Sounds a bit extreme, but this is what they honestly view such disposals as.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 21:13, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
I am a pro choice liberal but I find this abhorrent. To an extent I agree with their outrage.--Mercian (talk) 22:31, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
this was in the news about a week ago.

It's been a while, but it was worth the waitimg. Wow, that was plenty of fucking stupid in a small number of bullet points. Andy, your "pro-aborts" don't exist. Nobody actually wants there to be more abortions, they just recognise that it needs to be a safe, legal option in case of disaster.

Hilarious April Fool's joke[edit]

Also, I think Andy's up past his bedtimeimg--"Shut up, Brx." 05:46, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

That's not not an April Fool's, this is an April Fool's. --A Real Libertarian (talk) 06:05, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
Sigh. Andy, an April Fools' joke is only effective if you don't actually say April Fools immediately afterwards. Then again, Andy's the kind of guy who has to say "It was a joke!" whenever he says something he thinks is funny and everybody else just looks at him, like an old dog you've just shown a card trick. PsyGremlinSermā! 06:33, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
The question being: Is Andy really this obtuse about attempting a joke, or does Andy honestly believe the average audience for Conservapedia is so stupid, he has to explain the sentence is a joke in the same line as the joke?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:24, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
Andy probably would feel extremely uneasy posting an April Fool's joke without immediately confessing it - in his eyes, that would be deceit, which would make him a liberal. Plus, the man has no sense of humor, so don't expect (intentional) comedic anything from him. --Sid (talk) 21:12, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

If Bill Bryson's "Made in America" is to be believed, the only reason Yanks drive on the wrong side of the road, is that in the early days, the most popular cart/buggy/wagon/thingy forced the driver to sit on the left, so naturally they gravitated to driving on the right of whatever roads there were. PsyGremlinSermā! 07:23, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Falling for an April Fool's that obvious is pretty stupid but not exceptionally so. It's the whole driving-on-the-left-is-leftist nonsense that makes it a classic. In fact, the reason Brits drive on the left is so that a gentleman may use his right arm to wield a sword to fight off oncoming vagabonds. That's the sort of conduct Andy would normally admire, right? Heresiarch (talk) 07:26, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
And driving on the right is, in Europe at least, a Napoleonic thing. It allowed soldiers to prepare to fire their muskets without tripping over each other. London Grump (talk) 08:17, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Another theory is that the tendency was for most people to drive on the left because of the sword thing, both individual riders and horse team drivers. During the French revolution, everybody switched to the right so as to not be mistaken for a member of the aristocracy. Then the French conquered most of Europe and voila. Ajkgordon (talk) 08:23, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Somehow, I've mostly seen such claims by Brits. Who... would have an interest in describing leftside traffic as the natural state of affairs and rightside traffic as a perverse Napoleonic inversion of it :p In fact, wouldn't it make more sense to have traffic so that the sword arms don't meat each other? Or the whips of postillons, for that matter. Octo8 (talk) 08:59, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
I don't think it's a British thing particularly. There were Roman keep left laws. Ajkgordon (talk) 10:22, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
driving on the left, like drinking tea, is a mark of an advanced civilisation. Driving on the right and drinking coffee is a thing of savages. This is why I will be voting ukip. AMassiveGay (talk) 10:29, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Napoleon was left handed so drew his sword on the other side. The claim I heard was, that as well as the sword thing, a gentleman always carries his hawk on his left arm and so riding on the left allowed him to keep his hawk on his left arm and his right arm free to draw his sword/rapier should that be required. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:00, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
In other news, I see the story has been "trimmed" and oversighted. You're welcome! PsyGremlinSermā! 11:16, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
My understanding that driving on the left was the norm but that Napoleon and his armies - for reasons which are not abundantly clear - switched much of Europe to the right when they conquered countries. But Napoleon did not conquer all of Europe so that other European statesman, Hitler, converted much of the rest. Portugal was invaded by neither of the above so the right-wing dictator Salazar had to impose it by himself. So any prizes for guessing who switched Russia to driving on the right? Stalin of course. (It is possible that some of this is urban legend of course.) --Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 20:04, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
I think the various theories or myths about Napoleon are a red herring. My understanding is that the switch from the traditional left side of the road to the right had much more to do with Henry Ford. Early automobiles usually had a central steering wheel for a driver sitting in the middle, but Ford designed the Model T with a left-side driver's seat and other controls to the right of it (with right-handedness in mind). As everyone knows, the Ford Model T was the first car with mass popularity, and other manufacturers immitated the design, including the left-side driver's seat, which makes driving on the right-hand side of the road most practical. This was formalised with driving laws on this in the USA & pretty much everywhere else cars had become popular. The UK & British Empire were among the only places to keep to the old left side way of driving, possibly because the automobile market was already well enough established in the UK when the Model T craze kicked off that it was easier to keep to the left side of the road & build cars with right-side driver's seats than switch to the opposite set-up.

I'd like to point out, Britishly, that more than half the world's population lives in countries which drive on the left. Or, in the case of Chennai the last time I went there, are supposed to drive on the left. Cardinal Fang (talk) 14:10, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
About a third, I thought. And only 10% of miles driven are driven on the left. Ajkgordon (talk) 14:53, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Big countries which drive on the left include India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Japan, Nigeria, UK, South Africa, Malaysia, Thailand, Kenya, Uganda, Australia... & others. Not sure where that's got to but it's more than 2.3bn (one-third). Maybe not quite as much as half but it's not far off 50:50. (NB I'm counting auto-rickshaw drivers in India as if they should be driving on the left.) Cardinal Fang (talk) 16:13, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Is it meaningful to cite the total population of countries like India, nigeria, Kenya and Uganda to make a case for how many people drive on one side of the road when the number of people who have ever driven a car in those countries is pretty low? When you say "they drive on the right in the US, you're talking about way more drivers than when you say "they drive on the left in India." Overwhelmingly, people don't "drive" at all in India. TeenageWasteland (talk) 20:24, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
An awful lot of people use buses and autorickshaws which allegedly drive on the left. Hundreds of millions of people each day in India alone. Cardinal Fang (talk) 20:50, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
But they don't "drive." They could conceivably spent their entire lives not being quite sure what side of the road one is meant to take. TeenageWasteland (talk) 20:57, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Yes, as long as they make sure they always close their eyes any time they spot a moving vehicle. Also, yes, autorickshaws do drive on the left. They are ridiculously common in Bangalore; you can't go anywhere without seeing them all over the place. Cow...Hammertime! 22:23, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

I do love the way[edit]

That Fergus repeatedly shows Terry up in these conversations and the way that Terry repeatedly puts his fingers in his ears and shouts LA, LA Can't hear you. Top work Fergus. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:57, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Surely Terry took physics in college. How can he actually be arguing against Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation, or am I misreading? Forces may be small, but they exist. Surely he knows how, at least on paper, to calculate what he's claiming are or are not relevant forces using vector equations so he can do more than wave his hands and deny? Nutty Rouxnever mind 15:50, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Terry studied medicine. I'll let that horrific thought sink in for a moment. --PsyGremlinSermā! 17:09, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
I can more or less understand why he has this opinion (beyond ignorance). While calculating gravitational forces is fine and all, orbital mechanics on this scale require some significant effort and a bunch of calculus. It's easy to hand-wave things away as "the forces cancel out", because to low-order approximations they effectively do. If he had some rudimentary knowledge of physics (say a first year physics course), he would likely know how to calculate these orbits perhaps to first or second order, but no farther.
Keep in mind that his argument isn't that "these forces don't exist", but rather "these forces cancel". It may not seem like a big distinction, but it really is. Proving the latter to the nth degree requires integrating the gravitational forces over every time step, since the trajectory of (and thus the net force on) a body depends on the gravitational force it experienced earlier. This kind of calculation is too long and rigorous for your average first year class. - Grant (talk) 17:45, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
No, the 'forces average out' part is just a recent attempt to make his ignorance seem less pathetic. Regard his earlier quotes:
"And at the time of this writing, Comet ISON feels only the gravity of the Sun and not the gravity of any of the planets, satellites, or asteroids! (Reason: an object closer to the primary than other objects in orbit cannot feel the gravity of those other objects. Not until its own course track takes it outside their orbits again.)" "The gravitational attraction on any orbiting body depends on the mass closer to the barycenter of the system. Anything further away might as well not be there. ISON cannot feel anything but the Sun pulling on it. And as massive as the Sun is, the masses of all those planets that it is “inside” is not negligible." "ISON will feel the Earth pulling it in toward the axis when it passes Earth. It hasn’t done that yet ... Here’s why: orbiting mass beyond any one object exerts no pull on that object."
No 'forces average out' stuff there. Walt Brown feeds a line to Terry, who parrots it back without any understanding of his own. As soon as the line is challenged, it's easy to see that Terry is totally at sea, which is why he can't see the massive problems with Walt's 'theories'.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 19:52, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough, and I stand corrected on that point. However, it doesn't change the crux of my point, which is that the physics involved is likely well beyond Terry in general, so it's not so surprising that he doesn't show any understanding of it. Does it surprise me that he continues to spout it after he's repeatedly proven wrong? No, because as long as his source (Walt Brown) continues to spout this stuff, Terry has no reason to believe he's wrong. I don't think this is cognitive dissonance so much as it is ignorance, as this kind of viewpoint is often seen when undergraduate students try to parse upper level material. They find a source they like, and if that source is wrong, they don't have the requisite background to parse evidence about that, and so they ignore it. - Grant (talk) 20:09, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

World History Lectures[edit]

Andy is doing his World History Lectures at the moment. He is "improving" his material, and it is a nice blast-of-the-past to reread the old comments on the talk-pages: Does anyone remember Talk:World History Lecture Nineimg with the discussions on "which language is the best" and "are German composers the greatest"? Or Talk:World History Lecture Elevenimg, where Andy improved Einstein's Postulates of Special Relativity? Lecture Eleven gave us Talk:World History Homework Eleven - Modelimg, where Andy struggled to answer questions like "How won WW1?" and was "Canada a colony during WW1?" I just hope that his pupils not only read the lectures, but visit the talk-pages, too. --larron (talk) 15:03, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

From cp:Main Page/Previous Conservapedia Breaking News, he surprisingly seems to have cut only one item: the "news" that the "Question evolution! campaign book authoress receives a death threat from an atheist at Facebook". His imaginary girl-friend became the one who cannot be mentioned....
