And another one bites the dust[edit]

So the conservative vehicle editor CraigF2 has finally been exterminated by the luxury atheist killing automotive mark that is Ken. Creator of such articles such as Rolling Coalimg and Ford Explorerimg and enemy of one of my many, many socks (you'll never guess who karajou). As is SMortlach, for this seemingly (when compared to some from CraigF2) editimg. Ghost (talk) 12:28, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

its come to something when spouting bullshit that you know they will agree with instantly marks you as parodist. If any of the established editors over there were just starting out now, they wouildn't last a day. AMassiveGay (talk) 13:04, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Pining for the fnords
Adding an inoffensive and totally appropriate image is a sly mark of liberal deceit, didn't ya know? Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 13:19, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
you bastard. You could have marked that as nsfw. I'm going to need therapy now. AMassiveGay (talk) 13:30, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Clearly, his crime was adding valuable info to a stub created by Karajerk. Because having useless templates, is far better than actual articles. PsyGremlinПоговорите! 14:05, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Curiouser and curiouser. It seems this picture was uploaded by K himself. Maybe he objected to having his own bird characterized as "loud." (AMG should not click on that link unless he wants his foolish heart to go pitter-pat.) Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 14:25, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Ordinary editors haven't been able to upload their own photos for what, 7 years now? So any new pic would have to be uploaded by a sysop. Redchuck.gif Генгисpillaging Moderator 18:48, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Cheers, I hadn't known that. Is using an image from the Wikimedia Commons something only an evil liberal socialist would do, then? (Forgive my ignorance of CP ways, but the more I look, the less I want to know.) Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 19:04, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

This bodes[edit]

Just did a search on CP for the picture in the difflink and CP threw up the following:

CD DB error.png

Looks like Andy's lack of database management is catching up with him. PsyGremlinПоговорите! 14:05, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

I believe that error occurs everytime you do a search (eg, ken is a homosexual) in the search box. Ghost (talk) 14:35, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

According to Ken[edit]

Conservapedia's article on bestiality in sweden is the main reason it has been banned,img Nice work, Ken, awesome job, now you've saved all those reindeer getting a little surprise from Santa, will you now have time to finish your booklet ? Ghost (talk) 15:09, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Sums CP up really[edit]

Nothing, absolutely nothing I can find, about the murder of 298 people above Ukraine. Andy and his cohorts really are scum. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:06, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

It doesn't fit their storyline about how great the god-fearing, gay-hating Russians are. Of course they won't mention it. Unless Terry evolves a conspiracy theory about how it was Obama testing out his evil Muslim plan to use jets as missiles. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:10, 18 July 2014

(UTC)

Not even terry. Even on his hate blog he can't drag himself away from Gaza and Obama to comment on the mass murder. They really are a sick bunch of shits aren't they. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:16, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
What do we have besides a link or two to news stories on a WIGO page? Father Vivian O'Blivion talkModerator 19:12, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
That is still more than the 'trustworthy' encyclopedia has. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:16, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
CP's main page rightimg edits since the news broke. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:23, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm actually dreading that when it's acknowledged it will be something like, "Putin strikes blow to gay agenda and doesn't allow travel to AIDS conference through Russian airspace." If not Andy, there are several scumbags who'd do that for him. Whoover (talk) 20:29, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
[1]img--Mercian (talk) 21:29, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Demoted by Andy.[2]img--Mercian (talk) 21:45, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Now the sack of shit has entirely removedimg the entry. Feel that xian compassion oozing from his every pore as he prays for the dead. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:20, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

All signs are pointing to Russian-backed militias being responsible for the accidental attack. Since Andy thinks Russia is good, nothing that makes Russia look bad will get any play from Andy. Father Vivian O'Blivion talkModerator 21:51, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Remember Andy's been spending a lot of electrons touting Putin as the best leader America never had, not to mention he's so much more manly than Obama, and suddenly his latest mancrush might be indirectly involved in the murder of innocents. Given Andy's history, he'll either ignore it all together, or latch on to any conspiracy theory that says otherwise. So far, it seems as if the former is more likely. PsyGremlinПоговорите! 06:45, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Of course Psy, still it reveals quite how thin the veneer of his faith really is. From what I can see it is entirely political and has very little spiritual content at all. At least ken mentioned the murders, andy ignores them completely. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:26, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Andy really is a complete shithead. He's really so in love with Russia that he'll censor anything that paints them in a bad light, even when it involves mass murder. How the hell did he get to be like that? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 11:32, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
It is during these big stories that Conservapedia, Andy in particular show their true colours. What is the death of 100s including 80 children if it does not further his political agenda? If one embryo is aborted it is evil, against god's laws etc, If 80 are killed it can safely be ignored. If the Ukrainian military had shot that plane down it would be a huge crime against humanity. Is anyone in any doubt that Andy is Bryan Fischer without the charisma?--Mercian (talk) 11:36, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
The attitude of Andy - and many other conservatives - is best summed up by a lovely quote I saw online recently: If you think a fertilized egg is a human being, and refugee children aren't, you need to stop pretending your beliefs are based on religion. PsyGremlinПоговорите! 07:22, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Fuck you Paul, don't you have more pork riders to staple to bills that have no chance of not passing? --Revolverman (talk) 18:03, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Ken the liar puts his foot in it[edit]

Last night Ken tried to deny making FYI's. Lots of denying, accusing, deceit and burning went on, fortunately I captured it all. [17][18][19]Mercian (talk) 12:35, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Well, he seems to be repeatedly protecting and deleting it, http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&page=User%3AConservative%2FFYI, that (but IANAL) seems to be enough prima facia evidence to get full logs from Conservapædia. BTW, what did you mean by file:proof.png, it seems to be a screenshoot of you about to ssh into rationalwiki. CS Miller (talk) 15:18, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Already being discussed above.

Ken, when are you going to stop lying?[edit]

I mean, reallyimg. When you stopped bragging about Project 200+ I think it had something like 6 members, and lets face it those were all figments of your imagination. Since then, you've deleted every reference to Project 200+ from Conservapedia and from your blog, which you haven't updated in over a month. You've also deleted every reference to your 50/75/100 page booklet which you said would be published for sure almost two years ago, and you posted daily updates about how awesome each imaginary chapter was. Then you fantasised about a textbook you were going to publish, and how readers thought it was just peachy. Now we're six months past the absolute latest date you said that was going to be published, and every mention of it has been nuked.

Ken, you're not just a liar, you're an obvious liar. When are you going to stop embarrassing yourself? I'm sure we'll get an FYI about how you're being mysterious, and how we're all going to be eating humble pie when your awesome group of phantom friends publishes their great new material that will just crush evolution and atheism on the internet, but that'll just be another lie, won't it? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 21:21, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Short answer: never. I'm sure by this point, the moist and cramped space Ken refers to his mind, has turned this whole thing around into some sort of game. Every time he gets called out on his lies, he flips it into "Ha Ha! Look how atheists get so worked up by mere mention of my plans!" For me, the only curiosity left is how much of CP can Ken burn down before Andy just walks away and quits paying the bill. --Inquisitor (talk) 01:04, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Immediately burnt by ken and the GregG immediately restores it and repliesimg. GregG will be unpersoned very soon I reckon. Oldusgitus (talk) 05:45, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
And ken then burnt GregG's restoration of his comment. But ken, just to let you know that if you crawl out of your intellectual bunny hole and check AGAIN on Greg's page you may find something more of interest. Oldusgitus (talk) 09:49, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
The Chinese text is (quelle suprise), from the Art of War, it's translation is "Subtle! Subtle! To the point of formlessness. Spirit-like! Spirit-like! To the point of soundlessness. Thus one can be the enemy's fate star." CS Miller (talk) 10:21, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
I honestly think that HE thinks the level of annoyance he creates for atheists (or whatever) is him "fighting the fight" so he doesn't give a damn about actually doing stuff. He sees threads like this, and behaviour like GregG's, and assumes that he's winning because "the atheists are all in a flap" or whatever. Basically, he acts like an annoying coward because he thinks us being annoyed is a victory for him. X Stickman (talk) 17:03, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Annoyed? Seriously, does ken annoy anyone? He was annoying during that time he was trying to ruin someones business (I can't recall who sorry) but other than that he certainly doesn't annoy me. I point and laugh. I generally don't point and laugh at the less able but for ken I make an exception as he is such an arsehole it's too hard not to. Oldusgitus (talk) 17:28, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
I've been of the opinion for a long time now that he sees our commentary on him as some kind of... damage control. He thinks he's doing something awesome and we're scrambling to discredit him with insults/mockery, which means whatever he's doing MUST be damaging the atheist cause. He doesn't see us laughing at him, he sees us as scared (in an intellectual sense) of him and we can't come up with arguments against him, so we just laugh at him to try and calm ourselves down. I can't make sense of his actions otherwise, although I am willing to admit he's nonsensical. X Stickman (talk) 02:17, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Ken is an irrelevant but amusing sideshow. He's the dog in this. Ajkgordon (talk) 08:08, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Here is the FYI.[3]img--Mercian (talk) 11:43, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Oh dear. Ajkgordon (talk) 12:47, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Evidently, interest in Christianity takes a nosedive in July. Redchuck.gif Генгисunbelieving Moderator 18:53, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
yeesh, he's been fiddling with that FYI for something like 7 hours now and he still hasn't addressed the point at all that he's a total liar who talks big and achieves nothing. I wonder what possible relevance he thinks google search volume has to religiosity? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:20, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
So far only 39 edits.--Mercian (talk) 18:42, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
And burnt. I think he spent 9 hours in total on the thing. A day well spent, eh Kendoll? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:16, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Ken gets ever weirder[edit]

He spend about 9 hours yesterday fiddling with his silly FYI shoutout, now he's spent almost as many hoursimg trying to deny he ever said any of that. He really seems to think as soon as he burns the evidence that no one remembers it. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 12:39, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Even by Ken's usual standards this is bizarre behavior. "You can only prove that the myriad entity known as user:Conservative deleted the article user:Conservative/FYI, not that he created it." Serious headdesking metial there. Not to mention, this is Conservapedia - Do you really think a mere editor would have been allowed to live having created a dummy user:Conservative post?
Still, given that Ken is clearly not the author of the FYI's (PS that's sarcasm, Ken), I'm sure we're all relieved to see that no further FYIs will be forthcoming, because apparently Ken doesn't write FYIs. Until the next one he spends 9 hours tweaking, then deleting. PsyGremlinПоговорите! 14:27, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Also, Ken, if you had nothing to do with the FYI, and it wasn't written by you why are your fingerprints all over the Patrol log?img Why patrol edits, by somebody posing as you for 9 hours, before deleting it. PsyGremlinПоговорите! 14:43, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Note that the article is create-protected to sysop-only, therefore only one of these people could have created it http://www.conservapedia.com/w/index.php?title=Special:ListUsers&group=sysop . Entity that calls himself/herself/itself/themselves "User:Conservative", which one of those 29 was it? I dare you to undelete the article so that we can all see. CS Miller (talk) 15:42, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Er...[edit]

Why do we give a shit? Just askin'. Ajkgordon (talk) 08:03, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Padmelon[edit]

The cute little kangaroo, the padmelon, has been featured on MPL for a while now. Could someone who, unlike me, is not blocked at the IP level ask about why all those marsupials chose to work their way to Australia from Noah's ark? It's not just the kangaroos, wallabies and padmelons. The potoroos, wombats, bettongs, possums (many, many kinds of possums), cuscuses, marsupial moles, Tasmanian tigers, bilbies, numbats, Tasmanian devils, bandicoots, dunnarts, planigales, antechinuses, dibblers, phascogales, quolls, ningauis and more all decided to hop and raft from Ararat to Australia.

The only out is that, as members of the kangaroo baramin, they all evolved from one ancestor post-flood. That's either an awful lot of microevolution or an admission that postdiluvian macroevolution is a thing, which would seem to be game over. If not, it's God directing traffic with a sense of humor. In any case, they don't seem to understand the difficulty their little padmelon causes them. Whoover (talk) 00:49, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

For heaven's sake, any fule kno they floated there on mats of vegetation. Cloud Yeller (talk) 12:13, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
I thought they were blasted there by volcanoes. Casionaut (talk) 16:57, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

To me the best part is that a conservative thing like a typewriter was replaced by something that owed its existence to another conservative thing, the transistor. Father Vivian O'Blivion talkModerator 14:00, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Perfect Doubling. PERFECT. What an awesome scientific discovery Andy has made. I am not disappoint. DogP (talk) 14:58, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
You'd think Andy would realize his "hypothesis" is ridiculous when even Ken criticizes it. Even a rudimentary understanding of basic statistics would be sufficient to understand the multiple flaws in what he's doing. Snrub (talk) 16:37, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Someone came in and messed up his "perfect doubling". I wonder how long until Andy reverts the changes? Snrub (talk) 16:39, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
That was RoryFimg. Andy took it pretty well.img Father Vivian O'Blivion talkModerator 16:52, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
As has been pointed out here before, if someone really wants to have fun they should add many 16th century terms. That's when Andy's "geometric growth" bites him in the ass and he has to add many more terms to complete his "layers". My guess, however, is that Andy will take the lazy way out and declare by fiat that the words added weren't conservative enough. --Night Jaguar (talk) 17:19, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
In this case he's just gone "nuh-uh" and reverted RoryF's changes. Typical, and boring. Ruddager (talk) 23:21, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
I wonder if Any even believes his "conservative word hypothesis" or if he just keeps up his idiocy because he is completely incapable of ever admitting he was wrong. Snrub (talk) 12:59, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
You gotta admit, those are pretty indistinguishable within his demonstrated behaviour. K61824ZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 13:17, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Seriously though, the year is wrong. Back in 1829 it isn't call a "Typewriter", but "Typographer" instead. "Type-Writer" isn't used until 1874, and the hyphen isn't removed until 1880. But then again, who trus Wikipedia for facts? K61824Monitoring virgin birth experiment 20:24, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Barking Up the Wrong Tree Department[edit]

Our German Don Quixote, AugustO, is back and appeals to Andyimg to consult with Roger and Phyllis on the subject of Einstein. I wonder how that would go? Whoover (talk) 00:18, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Is that website even from this century? London Grump (talk) 07:43, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm saying it again: AugustO is trying to perform suicide by sysop.

Joaquin's never been a part of the inner circle, in terms of the backroom chats. Presumably 'cos he's from the wrong side of the border.

Whoa whoa whoa[edit]

Joaquin makes an MPR (I pronounce it "em pee arr") entry sympathetic to Gazaimg, with a link to an Al Jazeera article, no less. In and of itself that's not too surprising, as he's shown to be at least neutral on the Israel - Palestinian conflict before. Along comes Conservative to bury it with his drivel, so business as usual so far. Andy stops by and seemingly endorses Joaquin's entry by moving it to the top!img

What is going on here? Has the conflict in Gaza become so lopsided Israel has lost even Andy's support? Is Andy just being passive aggressive with Ken? Terry displaces the top entry with his usual link whoring a few minutes afterward, and it's still there as I type this. Andy made a small edit to Joaquin's entry after it was first published, so I doubt that Andy doesn't know the content of the article. The little nuggets of mystery like this are why Andy is more interesting than Ken. Shakedangle (talk) 16:13, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

This is really no surprise, coming from the man who listed Putin as 'Conservative of the year.' I'm frankly terrified by Israel's actions here, too, but this is likely just related to Andy's apparent endorsement of the Russian bloc 209.179.69.249 (talk) 19:08, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
Is Putin really that openly pro Palestinian? This article suggests otherwise, and it jives with my impression that he is trying to stay friendly with Israel and Russia's own Jews to counter the Russian antisemitic stereotype. He's hedging, just as is almost every other head of state of a major power, by saying Israel has the right to defend itself AND the violence needs to stop in Gaza.

Well, Karajou had to delete this page, as Ken made a greater-than-usual fool out of himself. A user named Historybuff came out of the blue and wrote at cp:Talk:Conservapedia proven wrong:
October 26, 2012
The October 26, 2014 event was described as a clandestine event by a creationist blog and subsequently reported by Conservapedia as a news event.[20] Why would we expect the mainstream news media and other media outlets to report on a clandestine event? Historians don't use the absence of evidence as evidence of absence in terms of events occurring or not occurring in history and AugustO is practicing bad historiography.

Most of the population growth in the world today is happening in the developed world and a large percentage of these people are from creationist families and grow up to be creationists. October 26, 2012 was a terrible day for Darwinism as is today. Darwinists can hide from this trend, but they cannot hide! Historybuff

re: book
When asking a historical question to frame a historical investigation, a historian must be both explicit and precise. The word "soon" is not explicit and precise. The meaning of "soon" varies depending on a person's culture and personal disposition.

Therefore, as far as this 2013 announcement made on another website which Conservapedia reported on, AugustO's accusation cannot be sustained. Historybuff 17:04, 2 August 2014 (EDT)

That's bogus. This is not an "historical investigation" or a court of law. An announcement at the main page should be written in a way that the reader is able to get the meaning of the news item. When the release of a book is announced to be soon, any impartial reader expects this to happen during the next weeks - or months. That's what we are used to, and that's our "culture and personal disposition": Coming soon in your local cinema.. doesn't mean that you have to wait for three years for the movie, as soon at your book-shop doesn't imply millenia of waiting...
If the writer of the news item claims that he actually meant millenia, he was misleading his public - and there is no place for that in a trustworthy encyclopedia.
The fact that the "Question evolution! campaign booklet" was wiped from Conservapedia's memory by the same person who had plastered the main page with it over and over again implies that the whole booklet-project has died...
"Historybuff" can't answer to my statements above, as I have blocked him for being a parodist and/or a sock.
--AugustO 09:50, 3 August 2014 (EDT)
Not only did AugustO call out Ken's sock (AugustO (Talk | contribs) blocked Historybuff (Talk | contribs) with an expiry time of 1 week (account creation disabled) ‎ (Either a parodist or a sock of User:Conservative)), Ken all but confirmed this by his block of AugustO (15:12, 3 August 2014 Conservative (Talk | contribs) changed block settings for AugustO (Talk | contribs) with an expiry time of 2014-09-03T19:11:25Z (account creation disabled) ‎ (does not want his historical claims subject to historical methodology. proud, unreasonable and stubborn))

Some fun CNAV action about the length of a month[edit]

There has been some fun back and forth going on at Hurlbut's blog over the last month or so about the effect that the flood had on the Moon's orbit. Terry keeps parroting Wally Brown's demented ramblings and getting shot down over and over. What impressed me is that Brown burned the evidence of his own ignorance over on his website as a result. Laffs ensue.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 16:28, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Excluding the possibility that Terry is knowingly dishonest about hydroplate theory, I think he realizes he's not smart enough to prove (or even attempt) the calculations, but he thinks he can recognize Brown's genius and has the same great amount of faith that he puts behind Andy. I've been wondering about intelligence and mathematics/logic, lately. If I have all the time in the world, could I teach a dunce how to properly wield calculus? Is it possible (or feasible) to teach Terry about orbital mechanics? Would that solve the problem or is his belief so rooted in faith as to be insusceptible?

Israel was not the only nation that mourned the loss of its children before the conflict started, nor was Palestine the only country firing near-indiscriminately its adversary. By varying definitions, Israel's military's actions could be viewed as acts of terrorism and Hamas could be viewed as Palestine's standing army.

The crap on bestiality, homosexuality, liberalism, non fundamentalist christian etc proves this, it is all about you.--Mercian (talk) 15:44, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
I can't believe I am actually supported Karajou on something but I feel it is wrong to criticise his service record. He may not have been a huge success as a serviceman but his years of service are nothing to be ashamed of. I myself served 12 years in the services and made the dizzy rank of corporal when many of my peers were sergeants, staff sergeants or even in one case, a warrant officer(sergeant major) after the same period and I am no way ashamed of my service.--Mercian (talk) 15:27, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm not really going to knock Brian for his service record. I'm not a huge fan of the military personally, largely as I think they are often used as the boot boys of the military/industrial complex (haliburton anyone?) but I appreciate those who do serve, especially the 'foot soldiers', were the back bone on which my freedom to mock karajou is built. And I FULLY appreciate the good things that the military do and have done in places like Bosnia, Sierra Leone, hell I'll even say Northern Ireland in some cases. I knock Brian for his impotent, misdirected, rage at things he doesn't understand. Like liberalism. And marxism. And captalism. And freedom. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:43, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Ken, given that even when you sock up as Historybuff, you are unable to alter your writing style, but still write in Ken-speak, it's pretty self-evident that only one actual human being edits that account, no matter how many personalities they might have. Somebody who is so paranoid that they lock every article they touch, including the talk pages, is hardly likely for you to share a password with another human. Even if they are chained to the wall in your mum's cellar. And if you're really so worried about what Karajou thinks of you, let me point you in the direction of this in the Special Discussion Group:

Did Conservative ever at any time tell us where he's from? Did he ever make postings of any kind outside of Conservapedia or CreationWiki? Does anyone here know his real name?


I'm saying this becaause I'm still not convinced as to his honesty with regards to CP. Yes, I agree he has made an awful lot of contributions to the site, but even Hitler has done good things as well.
First is the accusations that he is user:Newton at RW. As proof of that, I have submitted his postings of what he intended to do regarding the Atheist article and a picture of a prominent ex-atheist, both of which are born out by the times they were happening in both sites.
Second is the RW accusation that he is Ken DeMyer: http://www.adam.com.au/bstett/ReligCreationismBiologyMess108.htm
Typing his name on a search engine and looking at what he wrote will pull up pages like the above, which are similar to the edits Conservative supplied to articles such as evolution and Hitler.
Ken DeMyer is 45 and from Buffalo, New York. Remember troll and user KDBuffalo? Was KDBuffalo trolling against us before or after the Ratwikians claimed he was Ken DeMyer?
If the above is true, then we got someone with a clear Jekyll/Hyde personality. If it's not true, then we've got one hell of an elaborate ruse going on. Either way, I am of the opinion that Conservapedia should not have to suffer this.

Any thoughts on this?

Kenny and WW1.[edit]

So, ken with his usual intelligence and humanity, uses the anniversary of the outbreak of WW1 to write an article on WW1 and Darwinsim and then link to it from main page leftimg. He is then excoriated by user AlanEimg and kenny argues back before deletingimg the article but leaving it linked at the top of main page left. You really are a cowardly stupid little bunny aren't you ken. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:28, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

The article (and I use the term loosely) still exists but i's been moved without a redirect from "WWI and Darwinism" to World War I and Darwinismimg. You know, I can't help feeling that AlanE got what he asked for He really shouldn't have expected any better from that site. Ken, Andy and Karajou would not be benrath using the deaths of their own families to try to prove a point about their own particular hobby-horse. Of course Ken's going to use the death of millions to try to prove that Charles Darwin is responsible for every bad thing that happened from the mid 19th century onwards. Spud (talk) 08:11, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Interesting little exchangeimg on talk main page between the man child and Joaquín. I get the feeling Jpatt is going to have apoplexy when he reads that. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:36, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Oh wow, he's implying Muslim, brown-skinned people aren't terrorists. yeah, that'll end well. PsyGremlinПоговорите! 15:46, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Interesting. Joaquín posted something about Ann Coulter wanting Netanyahu as president. It included a criticism of Netanyahu's policy, saying it "has so far killed more than 1,800 Palestinians, mostly civilians"img. Jpatt removes the phrase with the summary: "remove unconfirmed terrorist numbers"img. Yes, that's a quote. Andy removes the rest with the bizarre summary: "remove neocon rant, which was originally posted apparently to criticize it, but was then edited to remove the criticism"img. Joaquín, wtf are you still doing on CP? --Night Jaguar (talk) 12:04, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
The really weird thing is that the Gaza picture with JM's 99% caption is still on the main page. But now its buried near the bottom of the page and Ken's written that 99% is bollocks underneath. Could it be that Andy and JPatt didn't scroll far enough down the page to see it? Spud (talk) 13:56, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Fields Medal[edit]

Given the meltdown Andypants was having 4 years ago, when the last announcement was made (gosh, time's fun when you're having flies) at the thought that they might HORRORS!! award it to a woman, who should be home baking muffins, because maths will make her little brain overheat, I'm quite surprised at the silence over there. Clearly it slipped through Andy's ADD attention span. And after all that effort he went to to create the cp:ConservaMath Medal and cp:Liberal claptrap based on Fields Medal.

Just wait until he finds out she's Iranian... PsyGremlinПоговорите! 09:32, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Does Andy even pay that much attention to CP anymore? MDB (the MD used to be for Maryland, but now means Magically Deliciousthe B is still for Bear) 10:34, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Andy's last 10,000 edits by week[edit]

Andy's Edits Occasionaluse (talk) 16:05, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Terry's graph is pretty funny. Since starting his blogs and abandoning contributing in late 2012, 88% of all his edits are to MPR. He's made around 65 non-CBP mainspace edits in almost 2 years, I'm assuming mostly to link to his blog. His last talkspace edit was in 2009. Hasn't been in the usertalkspace in over a year. Truly a drive by spammer. I thought he had more respect for Andy and CP, but damn. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:19, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I'll say something I never thought I'd say.[edit]

Robin Williams sadly died. I felt morose over someone I have never met but he made me smile and laugh and cry all at the same time with some of his work. So Terry decides to post something about Robin. So, with sinking heart, I start to read it. But Terry actually was nice, he complimented Robin Williams and even praised his work. Ok, Terry saw a message that were somewhat different to the message I took from the same scenes. But after years saying Terry is an arsehole I have to hold my hands up and say that in this he wasn't. So credit to Terry for not trying to score a cheap point and 'hollywood values'. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:34, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Well, knowing Andy, if he did happen to stumble across that web page, he would only read the headline and might say something like, "Professor values: Liberal college professor says illegal drugs are better than batteries". Of course, what's really being talked about there is hemp, the stuff they've made rope from for centuries. It's a typical newspaper story really. They grab your attention with a sensationalist opening paragraph, which turns out to be completely irrelevant. Then the genuine boring details emerge and the average reader never gets to the end of it. Spud (talk) 07:55, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

This Dallas News story appears to be about that. 68.187.216.117 (talk) 14:16, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
Was wondering why the hell someone would post that link and mention Andy. Yeah, it could have been worse. Rob one time accidentally named a file picture of an atrocity "Kara 08 yellow dress cover X", which was discovered to be the file name of some pornography. He unconvincingly and pathetically tried to claim he was playing a joke on us. Another time someone posted a screencap here but didn't realize it contained two open browser tabs dealing with bondage slaves. Nothing wrong with that, but a little embarrassing.
Anyway, my guess is Andy will just ignore it. Otherwise, find a way to blame it on liberals. Not exactly a bold prediction. --Night Jaguar (talk) 19:44, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Karajou being Karajou[edit]

That is to say, an old white male railing against change.img Change such as daring to question if a white cop killing a black unarmed teenage robber while he had his arms over his head, surrendering, should face some kind of scrutiny. This was all he needed, wasn't it, to confirm what he already knew - Micheal Brown was a "thug," an unperson not deserving of the due process afforded good, regular Americans. Goddammit Karajou, and every other right wing nut cackling in glee over this new detail, this is why you will never, ever, escape the racist label. Because you are racist. Shakedangle (talk) 18:06, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Another thing while I still have my rage-on; Karajou, you're not bringing "balance," as I suspect you feel like you're doing, to a lopsided conversation on what is going on in Ferguson, MO. You are lashing out in impotent rage at the breakdown of your white privilege, privilege what allowed incidents like these to be swept under the rug by police forces concerned primarily with self preservation.

Ken, if you read above you will see that Andy is rapidly losing interest in Conservapedia, it is only a matter of time before it is no more.

Because he has insulted, belittled and taken shots at me from behind his invincible barrier far too many times and he does it because he thinks he is untouchable. I knew a "Poor disturbed, miss-understood Ken" apologist would pull me on this, defending his islamophobic, homophobic and hatred of anything that does not meet his ideals as a result of a disturbed mind. To make it clear I do not wish any harm on him, I will not stoop to publishing his address or the like but he took the first shots and has not stopped shooting since.--Mercian (talk) 11:43, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

How am I defending homophobia, islamophobia or anything Ken has said or done? What I'm saying is that I find it pathetic that you (Mercian) should sink to his level or lower, and especially so when you claim to speak on behalf of other editors who may not necessarily share your zeal for wikistalking & harassment. There is nothing subtle or covert about Ken's behaviour & no reason why you would need to "warn" any web admins about him. If some site gives him authority, it's likely to be because that's just the sort of idiot they welcome. Trying to interfere with this is just going to make you look like a dick and - as long as you claim to be outraged by Ken's defence of bullying - rather a hypocrite. WēāŝēīōīďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:30, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
A point conceded Weasloid, you did not defend homophobia, islamophobia or anything Ken has said or done, an angry reply by me, I appologise.

Because I read you comment about "compiling a resume" and "you will never be given a position of authority again" as intent to follow Ken to other sites and interfere with his activities there, something that's a lot closer to bullying than standing up to a bully. If that's not what you intended, then what did you mean? ŴêâŝêîôîďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 12:30, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

I'm not wading through the obesity cesspool, but has anyone done so sufficiently to understand Ken's explanation for the world-class levels of obesity in the US? I notice that article is missing. It would also presumably address the states with the top 15 obesity rank: Mississippi, West Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Michigan, Indiana, Georgia, Missouri, Alaska and Texas versus their low-rank counterparts: Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Montana, Utah, DC, New Jersey, California, Arizona, Florida, New Mexico and New York.

I love how Ken's source for the Chinese buffets is Yahoo! Answers. He did try to rewrite the information without just plagiarizing it, bless him. However, it still reads much more like the travel advice it was meant to be (There's a Brazilian place in Guangzhou where they cut the meat in front of you) rather than criticism of the fast fattening society. I also love the heading "China and Western style food restaurants and China has rapidly become the biggest beer market". It's nearly as long as the section underneath it. In fact, it's virtually identical to the section underneath it. Spud (talk) 05:45, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't get it. Is China more atheistic now or something? What is explaining this astonishing rise in obesity? (Yes, yes, I know: a nation of growing wealth eating more red meat and delicacies.)
Also, am I misremembering, or didn't Conservative previously claim that Christianity is growing fast in China today? Phiwum (talk) 03:10, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

What it is about is language evolving, with some words coming into British English from American popular culture, as they have done since at least the days of the first "talkies".

New Article Has Promise[edit]

It's nice to see Andy's interest in CP has returned, and Atheistic Scienceimg is his latest project. He's been going on about how the Bible would have told Napa residents to buy earthquake insuranceimg. As usual, the linked article says nothing about people being misled as to the risk by atheists but is about how the premiums are too expensive. The Atheistic Science article looks to collect all his crackpot science in one place. Quantum mechanics is about chaos aka Satan. Atheist scientists insist that the Second Law of Thermodynamics is irrelevant to systems subject to the external application of energy, so their pseudo-science evolution will work.

Andy truly is a fucking idiot. How did this man get a master's degree from a real university? Snrub (talk) 15:44, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Engineering is a common degree for young-earth creationists. They seem to think it gives them just as much authority on teaching evolution as a Doctor of Sociology. Either that or it's just a traditional, conservative, Christian career option.-- Forerunner (talk) 15:58, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
The amazing thing is that they can get an engineering degree while still somehow convincing themselves not to understand the 2nd law of thermodynamics. It's like somehow trapping a smart person inside you and only letting them out at work. The rest of the time that person can still see, hear and feel everything you do and say but is powerless to stop the bullshit. They try to scream, "I'm not retarded really!" but no-one can hear them. It is no use trying to escape, you think, I am doing God's work. Fonzie (talk) 20:56, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
It is possible to squeak through an electrical engineering degree without significant exposure to thermodynamics. That's more of a mechanical engineering thing, or perhaps chemical. Complex numbers are pretty essential to things like Fourier transforms, though. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 21:13, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Andy has created an encyclopedia that hates facts. It's more than an odd view of science. The view extends to evidence. The Napa thing is a typical example. Faced with a headline to the effect that few in Napa have earthquake insurance, Andy feels free to write the story -- evidently without reading the actual article. He might have decided, "little-known part of Obamacare hijacks insurance premiums to fund death panels" or "Californians spend so much on wine and weed that they neglect insurance." He decided on "residents misled about seismic risk by bad science." Of course the article says none of those things, rather, it says, "California earthquake premiums are so expensive that earthquake insurance is beyond all but the richest Californians." Specifically, the article makes it clear that residents know they live in an earthquake-prone area. Maybe it's all the earthquakes. My only question is whether Andy read the article and ignored it before penning his fantasy or decided he didn't need to. In any case, this is absolutely another facet of the "what do atheist scientists know?" view of the universe. Whoover (talk) 21:35, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Conservapedia grade conservatives love tyrants. Oh they hate the term. They know it means evil, and will be quick to apply it to those they dislike, but they love tyrants who punish social deviation. Andy and Conservative both act as exactly those archetypal tyrants on conservapedia, and their userbase sucks up to them instantly and naturally. They just liberally apply the "enemy of my enemy" and "friend of my enemy" mantras to create webs of friends and foes. And then it's self reinforcing, their friend (who is only their friend because of enemy of my enemy) is under attack by their enemy, so they act in the kind of solidarity only authoritarians can manage.
The moments I love, and it can only really be watched live on free-republic and the like, is when there's a glaring contradiction. And they just snap, instantly from friend to enemy. Like within a day, Romney went from evil moderate who must be destroyed, to last hope for the world, because he won the primary and no longer was the enemy of their friends(and instead the enemy of their enemy).

Hitler and Stalin are two of his prime examples: liberal totalitarian leaders of atheist societies. When Russia turned from communism to Christianity, it no longer needed to be totalitarian, so now that it's conservative under Putin's strong but democratic republican leadership it proves the point.

Something Old[edit]

No, I don't know why I do it, but in perusing the discussion of dinosaur references in the bibleimg, I stumbled across a wonderful argument for Creationism:

Furthermore, even if the terms did refer to other animals, this does not necessarily invalidate the existence of dinosaurs. The Creation account was not intended as a comprehensive list of all animals God created - it does not for instance state explicitly that He created the ferret.

There's no arguing with logic. Whoover (talk) 03:03, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

I love that article, every possible failure of logic demonstrated in one place together with many contradictions of the same fallacies. It's been heavily rewritten (and Kara is threatening to rewrite the whole thing) but my favourite bit was the recent discovery of the coelocanth is absolute proof that dinos are still running around The Congo. Sphincter (talk) 03:50, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Another great line, this from Causes of Homosexuality:img
In Genesis 19, the city of Sodom is revealed as a place in which men sexually lusted after men, from which the term "sodomy" was derived (like as homosexuals use the term "gay", although this is contradictory in the end).
No, it can't be parsed, but it's unintentionally hysterical just the same. Whoover (talk) 06:21, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

The destruction of Sodom (if it were true) was a crime against humanity. My home city has a red light district with perhaps a few hundred people involved in the illegal sex trade so it deserves to be destroyed according to biblical logic and the bible is of course the most logical book ever written. And even if, by the same perverted logic, the sex traders deserve death, what of the remaining 1/4 of a million? It is in my mind one of the most vile books ever written.--Mercian (talk) 15:29, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
Sodom wasn't just a few gay people or a few hookers or sexually liberal people, it was a town where literally every person ("But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter") will come and blockade someone's house and demand that the visitors be thrown out to be raped. The story has always had more nuance than "gays deserve to have salt related meteor deaths" but for SOME BIZARRE REASON all the crazies focus solely on the gay part. X Stickman (talk) 18:40, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
I remember an argument about the story being up for interpretation, and that since the Bible frequently uses "know" as a euphemism for sex, it could instead be describing a xenophobic police state that interrogates foreigners for the sake of being foreign.-- Forerunner (talk) 19:33, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
I find it puzzling that Genesis 19 is presented as a story from which anyone could learn anything morally laudable. You've got a town filled with homosexuals and Lot hanging out at the city gate like the midnight cowboy. It's not so clear from Lot's calm response that he even knew the two strangers entering town were angels. In some descriptions, angels are 18 foot talk winged beings. In others, they are radiant beings with eyes like lightning. The angel described in Matthew "was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men." Lot just bows deeply. So the angels, who certainly knew the townspeople would try raping them (or you can't rape the willing — who knows), insisted on spending the night in the town square. That sounds an awful lot like either drawing fouls or "when in Rome". Lot insists they spend the night in his house, with food and foot washing and whatever other nonsense — but they also certainly knew that the townspeople would surround the house and then try raping them, and that Lot would offer up his virgin daughters to be gang raped. Rape everywhere. Ehrenstein would go nuts reading that story. And then the angels tell Lot to get out of Dodge and not to look back, knowing of course that his wife would, and would be turned into a pillar of salt. Why didn't they say "but no seriously, Lot. Your wife is going to look back — don't let her or she'll die. We're not kidding." So we've got this "moral" tale about god sanctioning gang rape and putting strangers over family, destroying a whole city he set up to fail from the start, showing just how slick he was to word his covenant with Noah the way he did, and god generally treating women breathtakingly shabbily. And after losing his poor wife, Lot becomes such a hopeless alcoholic that he can't put up a fight when his depraved daughters get him so drunk they have sex with him so they can continue the family. Perhaps god gave the old guy some viagra so he could manage some sloppy drunk sex. But contrary to these weirdos' claim that they needed to have sex with dad because there weren't any other men around, there were cities full of them. They just didn't live in caves way up in the mountains having sex with their children. And to top it all off, one of the daughters has a son who becomes the patriarch of the Ammonites, who god then sets up to be major antagonists to the other Israelites and ultimately viciously genocides.

Andy certainly has developed issues, on that I totally agree. Oldusgitus (talk) 17:18, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
Very fun listening. I like the way that Posner talks. He's so soft-spoken. Andy's argument is weird, and it requires some considerable gymnastics to figure out what their point of view is. I know it's intimidating to talk to these judges, but Andy comes across like he didn't put much time into researching this case. Part of how you prepare for a case is to find your arguments, but also to find the weaknesses in your arguments, and shore those defenses up. It doesn't come across like he considered that his case might be questioned. - Lardashe
Posner and Easterbrook are well known for making the best lawyers look like chuckleheads. I lost sleep worrying that they'd be on my panel when I did a 7th Circuit appeal 10 years ago. Nutty Roux (talk) 20:38, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

So definitive proof, if needed, that Andy makes an even more shite lawyer than engineer. I'd act surprised, but let's face it, Andy's inability to accept that his arguments are anything less than brilliant, insightful, and bulletproof are glaringly obvious. A question for our American experts: Can, and would, the NJ Bar take any action to disbar Andy (or any other equally shite lawyer) based on his performance in court and service he offers his clients in said venue (assuming that his performance as a lawyer was considered substandard by the bar), or are they relatively powerless to act?--Stunteddwarf Spirit of the Cherry Blossom 22:25, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

You're not joking, are you? No. The NJ bar would not take any action because you say so. He hasn't done anything wrong. Ehrenstein talked about trying to get my law license revoked because he doesn't like me anymore, so I understand a little better the significance of people casually talking this kind of nonsense out of their asses. How in the world does a bar knows if a lawyer's performance is "substandard"? Is it because he loses? Or because you think his arguments are crummy? To suggest that he should lose his professional license because you dislike him and have an ideological bone to pick is low. Nutty Roux (talk) 23:06, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
It takes a lot to get an attorney disbarred. And even if Andy were disbarred, it hardly would accomplish anything. He's not doing anything corrupt, he's not hurting anyone. However, I wonder if he could be goaded into complaining about Posner and Easterbrook on CP. That might be worth some laughs. Lardashe
I suspect any mention of it will be burnt and the offender banned. Previously andy has done his 'a conservapedian will be speaking before the court' bullshit whenever he wanted people to know he was spreading his crap around in front of judges. I don't think he really had any intention of trying to win this pleading, he was there because wignut welfare hass to be paid for somehow and those who pay the piper call the tune. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:00, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, my post was misunderstood. I was asking if the Bar itself has the ability to disbar somebody based on their view of the individual's competence or inability to meet a certain level of professionalism. I wasn't saying anything about making a complaint. The reason I ask is that in the UK the Bar can strike somebody off for a wide variety of reasons, and not all of them require a complaint being made about the individual, the individual just has to make enough problems to bring disgrace to the reputation of their profession. The point is, if the various State Bars don't have that power, I wonder what the point of their existence is, beyond a sort of glorified old boys club.--Stunteddwarf Spirit of the Cherry Blossom 11:12, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

The State Bar can do that... but it still tends to take a lot. This is the only one I know of offhand, since it's a little more prominent. But the state does disbar lawyers for poor professional conduct. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Thompson_%28activist%29 - Lardashe
Wow, I think the UK (well, England & Wales) has very different ideas about poor professional conduct. Publicly insulting opposing counsel or even insulting them out of chambers is enough to see your career end with remarkable haste over here.--Stunteddwarf Spirit of the Cherry Blossom 12:16, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Conservapedia highlighted in a new book[edit]

I'm reading this book at the moment and Conservapedia is highlighted - in particular the Counterexamples to Relativity. Acei9 22:33, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Conservapedia in the Precambrian[edit]

They've finally gone doolally over at CP. Apparently the existence of a blastula-like fossil in the Precambrian disproves evolution. But I thought they didn't believe the cosmos, let alone animals, existed 600 million years ago....? And why do they think this disproves evolution anyway??? Does the existence of minds like Terry Hurlbut's disprove the existence of an intelligent creator? Cardinal Fang (talk) 19:24, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Well, for most of the Precambrian era, there's not supposed to have been multicellular lifeforms. Towards the end there were, though, and there's some contested examples of earlier Precambrian complex life as well.
As for how it would disprove evolution, a more complex lifeform existing "out order," that would suggest that the idea of common descent is false. It's similar to the common example explaining how evolution is falsifiable: the Precambrian rabbit. According to current scientific knowledge, life was not as complex as a rabbit in that era. Or something like that. I am not even close to an expert on the evolution of species throughout Earth's geological eras.
I haven't looked at Terry's claims or evidence, but my guess is that if it popped up on a site like CNAV, it's either complete bullshit or a more minor discovery taken out of context and blown out of proportion by people who don't know what they're doing and have an agenda--"Shut up, Brx." 19:57, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
The multi-cellular life of the Precambrian is called the Ediacaran now and possible metazoan embryos have been an interpretation of fossils from early in the period for quite a while now. I don't know what he's going on about. Whoover (talk) 20:27, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
The lying SOB even includes a 2007 photo he stole from Wikipedia, captioned to say it's from the new Nature article. These from the guys who claim deceit is only done by liberals. Whoover (talk) 20:40, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) He's talking about this. Hell if I can tell you what it really means, but it's on Nature's website, so I'm sure it counts for something--"Shut up, Brx." 20:43, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
It "means" that multicellular life didn't appear suddenly in the Cambrian. But we've known that for years. (We also have fossil evidence of multi-cellular red algae from over a billion years ago, but we get more excited by things that could be "animal" life). The Ediacaran biota is fascinating because we're not sure what it really was, but there's a lot of it and it was clearly multi-cellular and probably "animal." And some of the earliest Ediacaran fossils seem to be embryos, but since we're not sure how to classify the many Ediacaran life forms we're obviously not too sure about the nature of these embryos. The new paper merely presents some new ones. Nothing earth-shaking, but of course interesting. Creationists like to make up shit (like "multi-cellular life appeared suddenly in the Cambrian") as problems for evolution. Then they forget that they made it up as a problem and declare that evidence of pre-Cambrian multi-cellular life is now the problem for evolution. It's par for the course. The bit that's so slimy is his obviously knowing that this is old news, as evidenced by using a 2007 photo, and then claiming it's a new bombshell. I don't know why they bother. They know that there's no such thing as life because the Second Law of Thermodynamics prohibits it. Whoover (talk) 21:24, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
It may be old news, but the article he cites was published four days ago. I'm sure as hell not defending him, mind you.--"Shut upBrx." 21:29, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, it's a new paper. Paper on details of the Doushantuo Formation are published all the time. This one provides some new details on the presumed embryos, but the embryos are not new news. Terry knows this but pretends otherwise. Whoover (talk) 21:36, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Sounds like him--"Shut up, Brx." 22:19, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Terry should stay well away from geology and paleontology because he always makes a fool of himself when he comments on these topics. Once again it is creationists basing all their arguments on the state of knowledge from 50 years ago. Technology has uncovered a lot of stuff which wasn't available to those with just a rock hammer and hand lens. The Cambrian explosion is basically the first evidence of life for macro-creatures with skeletons, and it was a puzzle for geologists why animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record. Now that we know about Ediacarans and have fossil evidence for them it actually strengthens the case for evolution as we can see the evolutionary tree stretching farther back in time. Chuckarse thinks that finding "embryos of animals" in the Precambrian is somehow equivalent to finding a rabbit but he's missing Haldane's point which is that to prove creationism a modern animal which has gone through many stages of evolution would have to be found in the Precambrian and a "missing link" between unicellular and multicellular life is not even close to that.

Slight rewrite of your first sentence, Genghis: "Terry should stay well away from geology and paleontology the computer because he always makes a fool of himself when he comments on these topics." Scream!! (talk) 11:53, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
That's as maybe, but I only read Chucky's stuff about creationism when it is highlighted here. I refrain from reading his other stuff as it leaves me feeling nauseous and soiled. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD member Moderator 18:56, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Oh my god, Terry linked to himself three different times. All three links, from The Examiner, CNAV, and the Creation Science Hall of Fame, all saying the same thing, all written by him. This guy. Seriously, this fucking guy.--"Shut up, Brx." 20:43, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
