No Feren' Names Need Apply[edit]

The Portuguese form of "John"img doesn't conform to CP's weird and inconsistent username policy. This guy is probably a parodist but, even so, "please come back when you have an American name" is a bit much. 03:21, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

I see kens off his meds again[edit]

Ken, get some help bud. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:15, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Or some company, he seems like a very lonely man. He always takes negative aspects of himself and projects them onto atheism, no friends, homophobia, misogyny, Islamophobia, perverse sexual practices(no proof but many indicators). Is it certain that he is not a parodist?--Mercian (talk) 16:38, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
Oh dear goat, kens latestimg magnum opus. Oldusgitus (talk) 21:11, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm still awed by the observation that, based on filling out a form, the largest group of atheists are those with an IQ of "65-72." Dozens of articles have flowed from that analysis, never once pondering the accuracy of surveys on religion and philosophy administered to the retarded. Some things can't be parodied. Whoover (talk) 23:27, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
Here's the (latest) link to Ken's Magnum Opusimg, cited by the Old Git. (Ken keeps changing the name of the page, presumably to hide it from all those dumb, computer-illiterate atheists.) Cardinal Fang (talk) 09:19, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
And another thing, does anyone know who Vox Day is, who Ken regards as the world-leading authority on atheist stupidity? Cardinal Fang (talk) 09:20, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
He's a shouty apologist called Theodore Beale. He's really not worth paying much attention to, his much vaunted 'debates' generally consist of him shouting down anyone who disgarees with him or tries to actually, you know, debate and then if they continue to show him up as a moron he simply bans them from his chat rooms and blog. Oldusgitus (talk) 10:16, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
He is also a racist twat, I am not going to bother dig it out but I recall one online discussion where he was criticising women having the vote which quickly devolved to that he does not think black people should be allowed to vote. If anyone were allowed to reply on CP this would be pointed out to Ken, which he fully knows anyway. So Ken, your hero is a misogynistic racist wanker, what do you have to say about that? He is fully accepted as a conservative hero at CP, Schlafly is after all an anti woman, pro BNP, pro apartheid excuse for a human.--Mercian (talk) 11:26, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
I've just looked at the RW page on Vox Day then sullied my eyeballs by looking at his blog. Nice guy </sarcasm>. Among the totally predictable trash/ shit/ merde on his blog, there's a surprising link to a 28-minute interview of John Julius Norwich [*] about the history of East-West conflict. (1) How the hell did this little turd secure an interview with JJN? (What lies did he tell JJN to get it?) (2) Has anyone here listened to this interview and if so, does it rise above the level of a total waste of time? [*] Very eminent British historian and art historian specialising in Byzantium. Must be way past normal retirement age by now. Cardinal Fang (talk) 13:37, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
This article on his blog (re-direct from RW page)[2] is revolting, and If ken continues to use him as a source, that, in my mind, makes him just a revolting. Atheism and women,[3] Irreligion and_domestic violence[4], I wonder how he can compose these articles with any sense of morality at all. I have never heard of one atheist say that throwing acid in a girl's face is a good thing. There is no ambiguity here, Ken knows exactly the views of Mr Day and he and by extension Conservapedia agree with him.--Mercian (talk) 14:19, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Mercian, thank-you </sarcasm> for posting the link to that post by VD. It's possibly the most distasteful thing I've ever read. Good grief, it makes Schlafly look intelligent and Karajou look sensitive. And I see what the Old Git means by his idea of debating being to shout down people he doesn't agree with. Stay clear of him. Cardinal Fang (talk) 15:06, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Beale (I'm sorry, I'm not going to call a guy 'Voice of God') is also the only person ever to get thrown out of the SFWA in, due to his behavior and letter-writing to one of their officers. Time abrades memory, but if I recall correctly his problem with her was entirely down to gender and his Issues with women. --Maxus (talk) 19:23, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Mercian, just think of him as V.D. Cardinal Fang (talk) 20:36, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Very little danger in Ken getting V.D as you generally need to have sexual intercourse to contract it. I am looking forward to "Atheism and Venereal Disease" though. I also see that to have a ban lifted you need to write a novella of at least 24,000 words on atheism[5]. Standards are getting higher for the privilege of posting on Conservapedia. I wonder if posting articles on how great Nick Griffin or Pik Botha are would count?--Mercian (talk) 10:52, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

To give Andy a tiny, tiny, tiny bit of credit, he claims not be racist and sometimes even behaves as such. It would be more convincing if he were tougher on the people who misuse his blog/encyclopedia. I'd like to think he'd revert an article which wrote favourably about Nick Griffin. </being nice to Andy>. Cardinal Fang (talk) 22:15, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Mercian, he's way ahead of you!!!!! I couldn't be bothered to read it carefully enough to understand the connection between atheism, STDs, bestiality, Darwin and Sweden. Cardinal Fang (talk) 22:20, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Cardinal, Andy has before expressed admiration for the BNP, though I admit not Griffin specifically, his only real criticism of them was that they were pro NHS. His reaction when Mandela died was how South Africa had got worse since the fall of Apartheid and how much better it was under white rule. As for the Atheism and VD thing, OMFG, an attempt at being facetious by me, I would never have thought he would have actually written an article on it. What am I saying? It is typical ken modus operandi.--Mercian (talk) 23:17, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Cardinal, look up "affirmative-action president" on CP and then come back and tell me Andy isn't racist. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 23:22, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Lol, I do believe Lewis Hamilton was an "affirmative-action racing driver" at one point but to be fair this has been removed.--Mercian (talk) 23:27, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
That was prolly parody. Af-Ac Pres went from god's lips to Andy's keyboard. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 23:30, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Supporters of affirmative action presidents hold them to different standards (also see double standard) compared to no affirmative action presidents. For example, Barack Obama has presided over a doubling of the gas price and is the first President since Herbert Hoover to have net lost jobs. Another hallmark of the Trusworthy Encyclopedia is the misleading freeze-frame. Another editor got reverted and banned a few days ago (for "vandalism") when he replaced a 2007 Gallup poll on public acceptance of homosexuality with the 2014 version showing a complete inversion. Everyone knows about this trend except the keepers of the faith at CP. They honestly think that currency is the enemy of fairness. Their treatment of facts pisses me off way more than their revolting opinions.Whoover (talk) 00:08, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
AgingHippie, I take your point but I wonder how much of the utter crap about "affirmative action president" is sour grapes from the time they were both editors of some student law magazine at Harvard. I don't want to overstate it but Andy's claim that he isn't racist (even if it's sometimes, "I'm not racist but...") is one of his few creditable points, e.g. Judge Clarence Thomas is one of his heroes. There are plenty of white people below the Mason-Dixon line who are much more overtly hostile to black people. Cardinal Fang (talk) 10:07, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
I agree to a degree with Cardinal. He is not so much a racist as an extremely petty man who idolises people who conform to any part of his agenda. He loves Putin because of his homophobic stance, ignoring the fact that he seems to want to plunge the world into Cold War II. He hated Mandela because of his links to communism and supported the BNP because they are the only UK political party who are anti gun control. His stance on Germany sums it up for me. During the 2010 World Cup he hated them, saying they needed players from conservative Poland(a country that fears Putin and Russia) and needed these conservative players to do as well as they did, but as Germany was liberal as a whole they ultimately failed. 4 years down the line, with Germany one of the few (western or old) EU countries not to legalise gay marriage, he loved them, even nominating Germany as "Conservative of the year 2014." Less of a racist and more of a narrow minded bigot.--Mercian (talk) 13:04, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not buying it. His support of Thomas strikes me as in the realm of "some of my best friends..." And I'm sure he would be totally comfortable going to dinner at the house of an African-American family from a class background similar to his. But: There are lots of ways to get back at Obama without dragging this "affirmative action" nonsense into it, but he chose to make it racial. And as I recall, he made comments post-Mandela's death that said way more than "dude used to be a commie." Also, the idea that one must be "overtly hostile" in order to be a racist overlooks the way racism actually works. Do I think he drops N-bombs and rides around setting crosses on fire? No. But I think that at best he is a walking example of the "color-blind racism" that is a key part of racial dynamics in America. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 14:04, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Andy's post-Mandela talk was less overt racism, and more his black and white (excuse the pun) view of the world being split between liberals and conservatives - SA is a mess, because liberals demanded an end to apartheid. Because Saint Ronnie would never do that. WIGO link. PsyGremlinSprich! 14:46, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Jesus, Psy, read that again. The end of apartheid was "demanded largely by outsiders"?!?!? !. I know you know that's bullshit, 'cuz you were fucking there, and 2. to me, that reads like the guy who says the salves were perfectly happy picking cotton on the plantation, and the world was happy and everyone knew their place. And if that ain't knocking on the door of justifying racism, I don't know what is.... Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 18:21, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Gay lobby & Mormons[edit]

That editimg is such a wonderful example of how Andy - a supposed constitutional lawyer - can't rasp the concept of separation of church and state. The passing, or striking down of laws, has absolutely nothing to do with the religious beliefs of the Mormon Church - which I suspect is as wildly homophobic as and other fundamentalist sect. Andy is as dumb as the Alabama Chief Justice. PsyGremlinSprich! 10:35, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Is anyone else finding[edit]

The new usersimg fixation on child sexuality, child sexual development, puberty and paedophilia slightly disturbing? Creepy uncle Ed would have trouble with this one. And noone over at cp seems to have even noticed, or they simply do not care. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:24, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Old user, old obsession. Whoover (talk) 01:38, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Hadn't looked that far back. The user did seem to go quiet for almost 3 years but is now back and helping to improve the family friendly encyclopedia. Oldusgitus (talk) 08:59, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
We've just had a NAMBLA-ist on here so might be the same person(?).
This berk(e) seems much more into little girls. Whoover (talk) 02:58, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

CNAV borked again?[edit]

Just me or everyone? Oldusgitus (talk) 11:53, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Just you it seems. And the top article is a real homophobic doozy. Even by CNAV's standards. PsyGremlinSprich! 12:17, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Conservatism in a nutshell[edit]

I particularly enjoyed this edit by Andy. The sidebar is conservatism in a nutshell. Welcome to CP, would you like to learn about gays, abortion or atheism? Occasionaluse (talk) 13:26, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Classic Andy[edit]

I doubt he reads the articles he links. The headline is Liberal ideology continues to destroy colleges, and speculation grows that "closures are about to become the norm in higher education." "Half of small private colleges and regional public colleges have either missed their enrollment or revenue goals in recent years." The article links to a spreadsheet that lists colleges with suspicious financial scores. The top 20 imperiled institutions of liberal mind control:

  • Alaska Bible College
  • Alaska Career College
  • Alaska Christian College
  • Alaska Pacific University
  • Charter College
  • Alabama State College of Barber Styling
  • Amridge University
  • Birmingham-Southern College
  • Blue Cliff Career College
  • Cardiac and Vascular Institute of Ultrasound
  • Columbia Southern University
  • Concordia College Alabama
  • Faulkner University
  • Hair Academy (The)
  • Heritage Christian University
  • Huntingdon College
  • Huntsville Bible College
  • Institute of Ultrasound Diagnostics (The)

Whoover (talk) 23:17, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

I think it's a well known fact that Andy only reads the headline, and if it fits his worldview, he'll publish it, regardless of content. Then again, most of his target market (if such a thing even exists anymore) also only read the headlines, and ignore actual content. PsyGremlinSprich! 09:58, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Of course they're all liberal. Look at all of those "Christian" and "Bible" colleges -- not a one of them have adopted the Conservative Bible Project! MDB (the MD used to be for Maryland, but now means Magically Deliciousthe B is still for Bear) 11:40, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
I must be slow but it has just clicked what the CBP is. It is Andy creating God and Jesus in his own image rather than the other way around.--Mercian (talk) 23:52, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

First there was TAR...[edit]

...now we have this particular mono-maniac who is somehow slightly more disturbing. Acei9 06:58, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm afraid this person may also be editing RW. Hans Eysenck survived a deletion discussion, and the person who created it is interested in the same topics - age of consent, etc. See Special:Contributions/PBustion87. A genuine monomaniac or one of those "let's see how those two sites react to the same stuff" trolls?--ZooGuard (talk) 11:06, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Glances up the page very slightly. And I do think he's slightly wierdly fixated on sex, especially with younger people. Oldusgitus (talk) 11:29, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Bloody Hell[edit]

Terry createsimg an article. That's the first edit I can remember him doing at CP other than to MPR in 5 years. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:47, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

What the fuck does white privilege have to do with abortion?--Tanis (talk) 16:37, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
Oh come on. You should know by now. Liberulzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:51, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
His water on Europa and Ganymede is proof of the great flood, WTF.[6] I have no expertise in physics but if such jets of water plasma were hurled 1/2 billion miles through space surely Jupiter's gravity would attract all that water. And would the amount of energy needed to hurl millions of tons of matter that distance push the earth out of orbit, according to Newton's laws?--Mercian (talk) 23:54, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
... it's just so dumb it hurts Ruddager (talk) 03:59, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Even better, Terry implies (in a comment) that all water in the universe came from the supply God created for us. Those Noah's Flood Comets could escape the solar system and account for any water found in other galaxies. But he admits he not as certain about that as he is that all water in our solar system was ejaculated on that fine spring day in 2348 BC. Whoover (talk) 08:57, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
BTW, does anybody know whether their thesis is that the water found on these other bodies (and presumably formerly on Mars) was aimed in their directions, or is just the water that happened upon them from a uniform spherical distribution? If it's the former, why couldn't God just make water where he wanted it? And if it's the latter, wouldn't that involve really a lot of water? Whoover (talk) 09:06, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
If you really want to know and you have sufficient brain cells to accept the number that will inevitably die from reading this crap then this is a place to start. But I warn you, the stupid burns very hot on there. Oldusgitus (talk) 12:00, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
It's this strange mix of magic and science that you often see with Creationists. They'll try to explain these phenomena with science that fits with their historical narrative. But anything that's too improbable (i.e. all of it) can simply be magicked into reality. Millions of tones of water affecting earth's orbit? He's God, duh. Ajkgordon (talk) 09:53, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
I challenged Terry once about why he needs to try and insert "naturalistic" explanations in between the supernatural stuff; why not just go for God did it all and be done with it. His answer: economy of miracles. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. Moderator 22:01, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
There are about 150,000,000 square arcminutes in the sky. Let's say Jupiter commands about one. Ganymede has more water than the earth. It got its water from the great ejaculation via "splash" (Terry's term in a comment). Let's say 1% of the water that sprayed the Jupiter system splashed on Ganymede. That means the hydroplate event blew 15 billion times as much water into space as the earth now contains. The earth contains about 350 million cubic miles of water. Let's say roughly 5 quintillion cubic miles of water were ejected. That's greater than the volume of the sun. Works for me. Whoover (talk) 17:23, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Walt Brown and TH have an intuitive (i.e. totally wrong) idea of how objects behave in space. In Brown's cosmology, the Earth sprays all this stuff out in more-or-less a flat disk, like the sparks from a Catherine wheel. The flying debris clumps itself together under mutual gravity, with big swarms of rock, ice, and vapor forming discrete clouds many times the size of Earth, but diffuse. The huge surface area of these 'clouds', which are spinning and gravitationally bound, allows them to act like solar sails and get pushed outward. Also, the warm sunward side of the clouds lose more gas molecules to space than the cool outward sides, and the spinning of the clouds means that this loss is vectored somewhat so that the clouds get a net velocity boost as well, meaning that they can climb to higher orbits - even out to beyond Neptune. These giant clouds pulled themselves together right sharpish to form all the asteroids and comets, some of the moons of the gas giant planets, Pluto and the other transneptunian objects, and stuff to be named later. On the other hand, they dismiss the nebula hypothesis of planetary formation as nonsense. In other words, their spaceships bank into swooping turns as the rudders bite into the æther, and everything looks like it was rotoscoped from WWII gun camera footage. George Clooney lets go of his tether so his weight won't pull Sandra Bullock off her perch. Barbicane, Nicholl, and Ardan experience normal Earth gravity on their trip to the Moon until they reach the 'neutral point' where Moon gravity takes over. That sort of thing. Seriously, they argue that you don't feel gravity from a planet until the planet is closer to the Sun than you, and even then the only pull is in the direction of the barycenter of the solar system. They're people of the land; the common clay of the New West. You know... Morons.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 20:08, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Just wow! So God works through bad science fiction. Solar winds are the dilithium crystals. Once the ocean express reaches the right orbital distance, it just waits to be swept up by Jupiter and splash where needed. In a few thousand years. So no aim required. But an eyespot could never evolve. Whoover (talk) 20:36, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Glenn Beck quits the Republican Party.[edit]

Back again![edit]

TAR has returned again! Let the chaos ensue! AyzmoCheers 20:35, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Most Liberal American Cities is pretty good. It's (by TAR's admission) largely a list of blighted inner cities that are mainly black after white flight. There's no sense of how they're ranked. Detroit is America's most liberal city. Inglewood, CA (something like 50% black) is number 6. He added Hollywood at 28 and LA at 29 in a late edit, realizing that you've got to have Hollywood and LA. He seems to be pulling the cities and their ranks out of his ass. Page through the history to see what I mean. Whoover (talk) 23:53, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

You know, I haven't been hear all that long, a couple months, so I haven't been following and documenting every last instance of stupidity there, but I simply cannot believe that someone who writes something like this "Vote with your feet (strategic relocation) from an Unfree state to a Free state to escape the leftist Welfare state - Nanny state - progressive Police state" isn't a parodist.

It doesn't work. It sees something and decides 'librulzzzzzzzzz' therefore tries to find an angle to attack it. And everybody knows that no blacks ever became members or employees of Her Majesties Security Services. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:12, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Sounds like the old "any affirmative action in support of blacks = anti-white racism" shtick. 141.134.75.236 (talk) 19:37, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

"Third, James Bond is more historical than fictional." BWHAHAHAHAHAHA! --Night Jaguar (talk) 21:56, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
^ Okay, haven't read the books, but we're talking about the movies here. Maybe the character was inspired by real events, but clearly the films haven't been constrained by historical realism (or even believability, for that matter). If you're okay with Bond killing a black dude by turning him into a balloon that pops, but not with Bond himself being black, well, I think I see your real problem. --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:11, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

I look forward to seeing Karajou whining that it's racist for Jesus to be portrayed with pale skin and blond hair - and he really was a historical person (probably). Cardinal Fang (talk) 22:31, 30 March 2015 UTC)

You can't just make him black! What about continuity? James Bond is an English Scottish Irish Australian famous secret agent who is currently younger than his own career. But he's definitely not black. I believe Felix or whatever he's called, the occasional CIA character, might have changed colour at some point, but that's completely different.

Idris Elba is no more James Bond than Michael Caine is. Bond went to Eton and Fettes. He is cut from the same cloth as Ian Fleming and Ewan Montagu's special ops section, the section that looked down on the sublimely well connected Dennis Wheatley as "trade". Then again, there's even more denial about class than there is about race. London Grump (talk) 20:56, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

in that case idris is no less James bond than Sean Connery. AMassiveGay (talk) 22:07, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
I personally found it annoying that absolutely none of the actors who have played Felix Leiter even remotely resemble Fleming's description, although I give them a pass on the one-arm part. Although I'm sure there are plenty of people who don't want to see a black James Bond out of racism, it's certainly a reasonable point of view that films should be as faithful to the character's description as possible; conflating the two isn't helpful, although I noticed that the link above doesn't provide any examples of that actually occurring. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 23:12, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
When I first read Dune, for no particular reason, I pictured Duncan Idaho as a Black guy, and that's stuck with me for more than 30 years. So both the 1980s movie and the 1990s mini-series let me down a bit because my favorite character didn't look right. That said, the movies are not the books, and I see zero reason why a film-maker has any obligation to faithfully reprroduce every, or any, aspect of a book that she is turning into a film. It's her project, her interpretation, her vision. If you want things to be "just like the book," there's a book for you to read. There are many, mny reasons I'd love to see Elba as Bond. Some of them have to do with the politics of race and representation. Some have to do with the fact he's a great actor. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 00:43, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
Isn't it a well-known belief amongst the fans that there's a dozen different people who get their names changed to "James Bond" when the previous 007 retires? The movies ignored that theory a lot, though, preferring a floating timeline where everyone but Bond can change sex whenever. You'd expect someone to consider "oh, they've confirmed my 30-year suspicions" long before declaring it racism.-- Forerunner (talk) 01:32, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
I don't want to overstate my previous comment on Leiter, as long as the film is done well such things ultimately very minor and easily forgotten while actually watching it. Just in the Bond series I've seen it work both ways; From Russia With Love and Live and Let Die are two of my favorites, with the former being much closer to the book than the latter. As to the specific matter at hand, I think Craig is doing just fine and that it's not worth fixing that which isn't broken. I'll worry about the next Bond when he decides he's finished. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 01:35, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
This is almost a case of 'not even wrong' given how little the films relate to the books already. Like AgingHippie, I would welcome Elba as an interesting choice for Bond, he's a damn good actor and could well take the character in interesting directions. And id you want to complain about casting choices varying from the books, then you need look no further than Roger Fucking Moore. But let's not turn this into a 'favourite Bond' discussion. Overall, there's no reason why Bond can't be played by a black actor. It's fiction. Worm (talk) 08:44, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Does anyone actually care about the Bond films anymore? The Daniel Craig "gritty reboot" thing has been so tacky, I couldn't bring myself to be up in arms even if they decided that Bond was going to be a pacifist Scientologist. Seems like James Bond is now a freelance murderer for hire who wanders around the world battling America's bad guy du jour. How the hell do you do a gritty reboot and still don't mention the (cold) war? They should just make him a CIA operative and have done with it, then he could battle terrists and North Koreans to his heart's content and we wouldn't be having these silly controversies. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 08:54, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

@jeeves: bond has always been considered a murderer in some quarters, just a government one rather than freelance. @phiwum some found Moore was too tongue in cheek when compared to the totally realistic films before. He's certainly no worse than Dalton or brosnon whose films where absolute arse water. AMassiveGay (talk) 17:14, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
No doubt he's a murderer. I can't remember now which film it is where someone taunts him about all the vodka martinis to dull the memories of all the men he's killed and all the women he couldn't protect. One of those moments where the Bond oeuvre becomes more intense than adventure punctuated by silly gadgets and bad puns. Also, the only thing wrong with Moore's tenure is it went on too long. He should have quit after Golden Gun, or perhaps The Spy Who Loved Me. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 18:09, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Anyone looking for character consistency within the Bond films should have stopped looking a long time ago. Idris Elba's Bond won't be "the same" as Daniel Craig's or Roger Moore's or Sean Connery's or any of the others but then they've never been the same as each other anyway. & The principle that James Bond is this one guy who's been doing the same job for the past sixty-odd years doesn't make any real sense. Suspend your disbelief & just go with it: that's what we do with fiction. ŴêâŝêîôîďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 20:53, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Another Atheist Mass Murderer[edit]

Andreas Lubitz was driven to murder 150 by his atheism. Of course we don't know that he's an atheist because the librul media is hiding it. Of course he might be a Muslim but the librul media is hiding that too. But atheist terrorists are worse because they kill to glorify their God -- wait, what? They're driven to kill by their no God? I love Andy's rabbit holes. Whoover (talk) 00:57, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

He could turn out to be a Christian. There is no suggestion I can find of him being an atheist apart from when AugustO scorned any attempt to pin it on atheists and Ken posting that though he had to direct proof, the fact that he was suicidal, European etc strongly suggests he is. See Atheism and what ever shite he comes up with.--Mercian (talk) 01:17, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Fundamentalists are dependent on the No True Scotsman analogy. To become a Christian is to follow the laws (specifically the ones the arguer uses; if they happen to break laws, those laws don't matter). Thus, to murder is to reject the law and so a murderer can not be a Christian - just an atheist pretending to be one as part of a conspiracy. Shooting blacks and Muslims is apparently still fine, though.-- Forerunner (talk) 01:20, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
We treat Ken as an outlier, but Andy's posts are just as loony. Water rationing is liberal. (I guess the conservative thing would be to water the lawn and trust that God will provide). Andy's no less extreme on atheism, just lazier. Whoover (talk) 04:13, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Message for Mr Conservative[edit]

Ken, I know you read this page so please don't pretend you don't. You wrote on Main Page Talk, "I will let GhazS and AugustO determine if the characteristics of ... depressed/suicidal best fit Bible believers or atheists/irreligious individuals." My uncle was a Bible-believing Christian - a pentecostal pastor, in fact - who suffered from severe depression. How dare you try to use people's religious beliefs or lack of them to make value-judgements about their mental health. I wish you Happy Easter and I hope you spend the day reflecting on what genuine Christians believe is the good news of Jesus's resurrection, instead of writing malicious comments about other people.

Ken DeMyer and stupidity[edit]

His Lubitz-related comments are so full of logical fallacies that I don't even know where to begin. It goes like this: Lubitz was German and he was suicidal. Only 45% of Germans believe in God, and Christians apparently cannot be suicidal. Therefore he was merely pretending to be Lutheran and was secretly an atheist (who also killed all these people because he was an atheist, not because he was mentally ill). Sigh. --Da Observer (talk) 11:37, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

There's no "one of the most", I don't think there are any denominations that celebrate holy days where Easter isn't, officially speaking, the biggest one. It's kinda hard to get past the day that's behind the core creed of the religion. Christmas is only on the table because consumerism is a bigger religion to us Americans than Christianity. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 19:40, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, you say 'just kidding', but I'd bet that Andy thinks that the NCAA picks the final four teams or controls who is on what team or something.

Maybe he wants a Title IX for white student athletes?--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 19:33, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

What's confusing? Pretty much everything that passes for argument there consists of making up things. A favored category is making up things that liberals "think."

Basic Engineer Stuff[edit]

I know it's old, but it's so good. Andy is convinced that scientists ("atheistic scientists" in his world) believe in perpetual motionimg. This bit of lunacy stems from his obsession with the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which Andy believes would disprove evolution if we make the slight modification that inputting energy into a system could not reduce that system's entropy. (Actually, that would disprove "life," but for most creationists that's a small price.) Andy somehow equates the stubborn insistence on the Second Law's relevance only to closed systems with perpetual motion. (I haven't been able to follow that train, so if anyone can shed some light on it I'd be in your debt.) Thus we come full circle: belief in evolution is equivalent to insisting that perpetual motion machines are real.

For a guy with an engineering degree, this muddle is more amazing than his not understanding how the Constitution works. Whoover (talk) 16:53, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

I don't get the claim that Anger Bear or conservatives have appropriated a feminist icon. Far as I understand it, Rosie the Riveter was not created as a feminist icon, but as a call to women to pitch in on the home front. That is, she was fundamentally pitched as a patriotic icon, albeit with a call to women to enter professions previously closed to them. She became a feminist icon later, when feminism became a real social concern.
From Wikipedia: It was only later, in the early 1980s, that the Miller poster was rediscovered and became famous, associated with feminism, and often mistakenly called "Rosie The Riveter."
So, seems to me that it's the feminists that appropriated Rosie for their own ends -- not that I see anything wrong with that. Phiwum (talk) 20:04, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Ken Updates "Obama and Unemployment"[edit]

Ken and his parodist doppelganger, VargasMilan, have been defending Barack Obama and United States Unemploymentimg from reality for some time now, and today Ken updated the article in response to some unease among the troops. First, there are a number of things he didn't update. Unemployment figures are still stuck in 2010. Guess Why. Under "Obama's Misleading Statistics" the article still bemoans the "real" unemployment rate, U6, "rose to 16.8% from 16.5%." Today it's 10.9%.

Under "Obama Jobs Deficit" we learn (indirectly) that non-farm payroll is about 129 million. Today it's 141 million.

Under "Return of Stagflation Concerns" we learn that, in 2010, the Washington Times fretted about high inflation and continued high unemployment. It's not worth an update that, as of 2015, neither happened.

He did shuffle some text around. We still learn that the continuing (in 2010) high unemployment is because of Obamacare. And that if we add national debt and unemployment numbers together into a "misery index," it's high (although we don't learn the unemployment component is much improved, even though this is the unemployment article, not the national debt article).

He also added a disclaimer, that if you really know that unemployment is the lowest it's been in over a decade, it's because Republicans slashed unemployment benefitsimg.

Maybe not worth a section, but Andy is going on again about Andreas Lubitz being an "atheistic terroristimg. Let's say he was an atheist (or at least not a very good Lutheran) and even that his goal was to kill a bunch of people. Andy still loses me on the terrorism angle. We generally know the cause that a terrorist is trying to further. They may be wackadoodle, but sweeping the Jews out of the Holy Land and avenging Waco are causes. The acts of terrorism in support of these causes sort of have a sick logic in the minds of terrorists. But what are atheistic terrorists looking to accomplish? Killing random people in the name of not Jesus? Not Allah? Not David Koresh? Seriously, does anybody have a clue how Andy connects the concepts of atheist and terrorist? There's got to be an angle I'm missing. Whoover (talk) 05:28, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

This is the man who insists Fred Phelps, Adolf Hitler and Anders Behring Breivik are/were liberals. There is no angle you are missing, this atheistic terrorism is bullshit. The IRA and other Irish Nationalist groups were catholic, the loyalist groups were protestant but their terrorism was due to nationalism not religion. I am sure Andy would be quick to point that out to you.--Mercian (talk) 12:48, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Terrorism committed by atheists exists resp. existed (such as the Red Army Faction in West Germany and similar groups such as the Japanese Red Army), but terrorism motivated by atheism? Does such stuff exist, cause nothing such comes to my mind?--Arisboch (talk) 12:57, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure I could come up with a specific example, but I don't think it does us any good to deny that it is possible. Someone could certainly commit a terrorist act in the name of wiping out religion or something similar. I would consider that atheistic terrorism. Has it happened? I don't know. However, denying that it is even possible just makes us look ridiculous. AyzmoCheers 15:02, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
I take your point Ayzmo and it is true that atheists as a group and not inherently better than religious people but they are not worse either. I don't see any atheists accusing him of Christian terrorism despite him seemingly being one. The pilot was obviously sick but that does not excuse him. Killing 100s of people because he had problems is evil whatever his background. IMO he was a class a arsehole, atheist or not.--Mercian (talk) 17:07, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Interesting reply. In saying that he was sick are you admitting that he was very likely mentally ill? Then we get into the discuission of whether someone who is mentally ill can be evil when acting under the influence of their illness. A friend of mine is severly bi-polar and during any one of his episodes he tends to severly self-harm but he is not acting rationally, he is acting under the unfluence of what 'the voices' - his phrase not mine - are telling him to do. And I don't think he can necessarily be called evil. And that's putting aside the entirely subjective nature of evil in itself. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:39, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm not denying that it's possible. Anything is possible. I'm denying that there's any evidence that the point of this act was to further the cause of atheism. No tweet celebrating his incipient victory over mythology. No martyrdom video claiming he looks forward to no afterlife whatsoever. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that I don't know of any terrorist action taken to further the cause of atheism. Anarchy, yes. Communism, yes. Are many anarchists and communists atheists? Of course. But "atheistic terrorism" makes as much sense as "left-handed terrorism" or "red-headed terrorism." Whoover (talk) 18:30, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Guys guys guys, Andy's got your back with an elegant elegant solution to your dilemma: it's terrorism if an atheist does it because reasons. No doubt one of his god-inspired "insights."

It's unfortunate how few people see this the same way as with the English and Irish (I'm American and too young to have seen most of it, but I vividly remember Omagh), namely that it's going to take both sides realizing it's not accomplishing anything to keep blowing each other apart. As well-intentioned as Americans may be, just like with the English and Irish that's got to come from the people living there. Anyways, while I'm no huge fan of Obama myself I'm wondering why, if he had this passionate hatred for Israel so many wingnuts claim, he would have let Netanyahu address Congress. I somehow doubt he would ever, under any circumstances, extend such an invitation to Abbas. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 21:34, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Andy's starting a revisionist history of the National Traffic Safety Boardimg, probably setting the stage for the NTSB to be a terrorist-enabling wing of the Obama administration. The NTSB was formed in 1967, but he has it formed much earlier and stripped of its ability to investigate airplane accidents in 1940. That's pretty bizarre, even for Andy. The implication is that the NTSB is acting extra-legally. 1940 is when the Civil Aeronautics Board was formed and did the first airplane accident investigation undertaken by the federal government. Responsibility for such investigations passed to the newly formed NTSB in 1967. As a font of misinformation, CP is unimpeachable. Whoover (talk) 15:50, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Or for people who believe in magic trumpet sounds from the sky?). Oh yeah, and here's the proof:

Uh yeah, I went to State School in the UK, have had no formal education covering US History, and I aced that. It's not exactly taxing, though I have no idea how much history is taught in US schools.

CP does have another TK, and it's User:Conservative.

Ken combines the worst traits of Ken & TK, with zero leadership ability, and zero tolerance to even listen to others.

"If only they graduated from 3 Ivy League universities" 3? I'm only aware of him graduating from Princeton and Harvard Law. Anyway, if it is three, he's done jack shit with those degrees. "had a notable mother" How is that an accomplishment? "argued before high courts" And lost while having a judge literally laugh at his arguments.

TAR[edit]

It has been more than two months since TAR's last edits. You recall that he had a low level of editing for months and then bumped up the spam farm campaign toward the end of 2014 to help launch James Wesley Rawles' new book. He then dropped out for a few weeks without explanation prompting folks to start cleaning up the mess that he had left behind. Cons even edited the Manual of Style to accommodate his spaming. Then, on March 24, TAR disappeared again. All of TAR's promises to add quality content have been forgotten.

What happened? If TAR has left permanently, there has been little effort to clean up his James Wesley Rawles spam. Any insights? Similar Observation a Month Ago Hclodge (talk) 15:46, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

I did think of starting to clean up some of his shite but then decided it was more fun to leave it there. I reckon he may possibly be a little manic, rather like ken can get at times, and I wonder if possibly he is currently in some form of treatment regime which is keeping him off cp. Oldusgitus (talk) 16:46, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
I had considered that as well, particularly with the two abrupt departures. I also found his actions struck at the core of the CP belief system: Andy's theory is "We conservatives (and home schooled high school students) can build an online encyclopedia just as good as what the liberals are building over at WP." The original group that Andy recruited, particularly Ed Poor, developed a manual of style and a set of articles that worked toward that goal. Some of it was then laced with Andy's unique insights into relativity, evolution, RINOs and the Bible, but the aspirational goal was very similar to that of WP.
When TAR came on the scene, he started mumbling into Cons' ear about SEO and the number of links, so TAR-as-SEO expert convinced Cons that turning CP into a spam farm to promote James Wesley Rawles would be beneficial to driving readers to CP. Yet, James Wesley Rawles has not reciprocated or promoted CP and CP's rankings continue to drop. In addition, TAR drove away the few editors that still had aspirations to communicate content on CP. Now hundreds of CP articles are complete incoherent spammy drivel. I used to find CP's coverage and criticism of WP to be interesting and someone current. TAR and Cons shut that down. Hclodge (talk) 14:59, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

We are coming up on three months since TAR's last "contribution" to CP. Cons reports "I got in contact with TAR and he is going to start editing Conservapedia again probably sometime in September of 2015.Conservative 22:18, 1 June 2015 (EDT)". I find it amazing that a spammer can come in, produce minimal substantive content, trash a large number of articles with non-relevant See Also spam, leave 2,500 red links and then have his mess protected from correction with just the oral off-wiki promise of a possible return seven months into the future. Hclodge (talk) 13:39, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

More Quality Science[edit]

It's always hard deciding whether Terry's crap site, CNAV, is CP or clog. I usually put it here so I don't have to create a link there, with all the malware warnings that entails. But under the heading of "Refutation of three common icons of evolution"img we have Senior Science Correspondent, Roseann Salanitri, debunking Tiktaalik, "the walking whale," with

The counterpoint to this is rather simple. Do they really expect us to believe that the giant creatures we know as whales were able to walk on land on nothing more than underdeveloped fingers, wrists, elbows and shoulders?

A primitive tetrapod relative can't be that because whales can't walk. These creationists are so cute when the try to get all sciency. Whoover (talk) 22:59, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

On the peppered moth example, Insanitary is out of date (& I don't just mean because she relies on a 2.6kYr-old poem for what passes as her biological education). Creationists have relentlessly attacked the idea that predation by birds drove selection of melanic morphs during the industrial revolution and counter-selection in the last 30-50 years, perhaps because it's such a clear example of natural selection in action. This even got to the point where proper biology textbooks said the hypothesis of selection by predation isn't proven. The late, great Mike Majerus gathered definitive evidence for the role of predation in selection, published posthumously by Cook et al. (2012) 'Selective bird predation on the peppered moth: the last experiment of Michael Majerus', Biology Letters. The paper isn't difficult to follow so there's no excuse for someone who wants to comment seriously on natural selection in peppered moths not reading it. Answering Insanitary's specific objection, 35% of moths rest on tree-trunks. Cardinal Fang (talk) 20:43, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, of course, but we've seen that before. I think conflating Tiktaalik and Ambulocetus is her own lovely contribution. Devonian, Eocene, what's the difference? They're all synonyms for antediluvian. Whoover (talk) 21:34, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

I don't underestimate Rosanne's wilful ignorance. When the Cook paper says that 35% of moths rest on tree-trunks, I expect she'll ignore it because it doesn't fit her preconception that all evolutionary biologists are liars and make up their evidence. If she's reading this, she's welcome to prove me wrong by retracting her claim that the peppered moth story was fabricated. Cardinal Fang (talk) 15:47, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Oh, and don't forget. Orthodox jews also believe this afaik. That is why an orthodox jews is forbidden from touching a menstruating woman. Their fairy tale books tells them so. So basically no red wings for any orthodox jew or xians of the kind of terry I guess. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:01, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Most Orthodox Jews don't believe, or care, that there's a scientific basis for menstruating women being impure. They believe they are because the Torah says so. End of discussion. Any observant Jew will tell you that they don't eat pork because the Torah says so, not because of trichinosis. Jews generally do a much better job of justifying rituals as acts of faith, and not requiring science to be warped to confirm them, at least compared to the current culture of Christian fundamentalism. Whoover (talk) 22:10, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Indeed. Arguably the whole point of Orthodox Judaism is doing stuff that makes no sense at all because God said so. Doing things that make sense any fool can manage, but going out of your way, wasting time and effort to obey rules that make no sense, that is the sign of a true believer. In fact, Orthodox Judaism argues against rules lawyering of a type where you technically obey the rules but it doesn't cause any inconvenience. The idea is that being a Jew is special, and so blending in is a denial of who you are. Refusing to "Just get along" with how other people do things is about the closest Orthodox Jews get to proselytising. Chances are if you were to magically found a rational society with a bunch of slightly arbitrary but inoffensive seeming rules that didn't go out of their way to take specific religions into account, more or less the first religious people to say "Oh, sorry to trouble you, but I'm afraid we can't obey these rules, can you change them?" would be Orthodox Jews Tialaramex (talk) 00:26, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Does Andy Ever Think?[edit]

His latest headline is Liberal claptrap fails to silence reporters outside of the Beltway: "A handful of the regional interviewers invited to the White House didn't make it easy on the president," left-leaning Politico.com admits.img Reading the story we learn the press is giving Obama a hard time about the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. Not a surprising perspective from "left-leaning Politico" since it's liberals who dislike the deal and it's primarily Republicans who are trying to help Obama get it passed. Is Andy's position that the TPP is bad, aligning him with the Progressive wing of the Democratic Party? Or is it that it's good but Obama's for it so we have to root for it to fail? The enemy of my enemy is my friend, even when my enemy is my friend? Does Andy have a rational position on anything? Ever? Whoover (talk) 19:22, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

A "left leaning" news outlet is criticising a "left leaning" president, which in Andy's mind must mean Obama fucked up massively because no one ever criticises someone on "their side", regardless of their actions. That's why Andy has to take extra pains to declare someone a RINO or Not A Real Christian before he lays into them, the idea of actually disagreeing with someone who is genuinely part of your group is absolutely alien to him.

No. The real story here is the multinational corporate conglomerates are using TPP to push their anthropomorphic climate change claptrap and the GOP establishment are stooges of the global warming agenda. nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 17:36, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────No nobs, the climate is changing. Something like 98% of climate scientists think it is down to human actions, I stand to be corrected on the actual percentage. Essentially the only people who oppose this view are either scientists in the pay of fossil fuel industries or raving - non scientific - idiots like Nigel (i made no mistakes) Lawson and the raving fucking moron Christopher Monckton. The reason that many multinationals are acknowledging the reality of climate change is bacause they pay lots and lots of highly educated scientists lots and lots of money to tell them the truth. TPP is shite for all sorts of reasons, largely because moronic libetarians have hijacked it to push their idiological bollocks. The shiteness of TPP has nothing to do with the reality of climate change and your, and the wingnut wing of American politics, denial of it. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:25, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Rob, if you want to understand the first thing about TPP etc, look at the basic dichotomy of the EU. On one hand, you want to remove the barriers to free trade between nations. On the other, you need to provide social and environmental protections to stop the market raping everything for a quick buck. The GOP, like the European right, likes the free trade part and is kicking against the checks and balances. Social and liberal democratic parties and governments, like the European liberal and left parties, are fighting to make the protection as robust as they can.
What makes me laugh is how you "conservatives" are jumping around in lockstep now about something that's been on the table for ages and ages. Shit, in a basic form, it's been around since the mid 90s, when only the rump of the left was fighting it.

Dunno if Nancy Pelosi cares about plain folk. Maybe she does or maybe it's just political maneuvering. Probably a bit of both. I do know that the policies she supports are less damaging to plain folks than the ones Republicans advocate. Also, many green groups (e.g, WWF, Sierra Club) have come out against the TPP because it lacks many basic environmental provisions and many of the thing in there that are suppose to help the environment are unenforceable. --Night Jaguar (talk) 00:41, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Several issues are at play (leaving aside this interesting Feb 2014 Atlantic article).

A regulatory bureaucracy would have to be created to enforce it ("we have to pass it to see what's in it"); independence of the Federal Reserve Board seems to be a legitimate concern (as Chinese currency manipulation seems to have provided the immediate impetus); and there are those who are concerned about Immigration issues (which Paul Ryan says is bogus), nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 21:08, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Setting aside imaginative nonsense like the threat to independence of the Fed, how is that substantively different from the globalisation initiatives you all cheered for together in the past? London Grump (talk) 08:16, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Fundamentally, I believe the 'ol time free trade movement, as articulated by Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, that free trade will lead to democracy, is full of assumptions that are in error. The origins of TPP follow this same mindset, that lifting trade barriers with China is a step in the direction of using outside influences to nudge them toward democracy . Evidence elsewhere, with Russia and Mexico, two prime examples, shows things haven't worked out as advertised.
Now, does this mean we abandon the idea of knocking down barriers, give in to protectionist sentiments, and forget democratic ideals? I hope not, but a dose of realism is necessary when looking at our trading partners, especially since deals the likes of Iran and Cuba are in the offing.
Currency manipulation and a Central Bank's role - be it the Fed, the Japanese or Chinese Central Banks - is indeed a key issue. U.S. Auto makers have complained for years the Japanese Central Bank has openly assisted Japanese auto exports, something they can't ask for or expect from the Federal Reserve. Free Trade agreements are intended to "level the playing field", make everyone play by the same rules. Theory and practice however can remain far apart. nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 04:06, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

It's not exactly gibberish, it's basically just re-iterating Andy's standard position on relativity but now in the form of a bunch of bullet points. The choice of mass is important for E=mc² because particles have both a rest mass (their mass in a special frame centred on them) and a total mass in your reference frame due to their momentum. But if like Andy you refuse to believe in relativity then this looks like a cheesy get-out, just as a lot of mathematics in mechanics looks like a conjuring trick if you decide you don't believe in imaginary numbers or the infinitesimals. Andy also believes that fundamental constants (here light speed) change over time because it's convenient for his theology, and so that gets thrown in too. Tialaramex (talk) 08:32, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

I think he understands well enough. I think he is patronizing his audience and believes they are gullible enough to accept it.--Mercian (talk) 01:11, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
The 'pound of cake' - I remember getting banned (and having my edit reverted) when I suggested he try feeding cake to his car to see how well it ran Ruddager (talk) 06:00, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Whether Andy is patronizing, trolling or merely being a moron is a moderately interesting question. If I knew nothing about the man except that he was a lawyer with training as an engineer, and I read his "article" and his responses in its defense, I think trolling would be have to be the diagnosis. But who knows? What I can't fathom is why AugustO and SamHB continue to bang their heads against this wall and spend energy trying to convince Andy he's wrong. He either understands the science and is pretending to be an idiot, or he's an idiot. He's not going to suddenly come out with, "Oh! I see it now." He will continue to respond with nonsense to any and all reasonable points put to him. I want to grab both of these guys by the collar and shake some sense into them. Andy is Andy, but what is their problem? Whoover (talk) 08:02, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Andy reminds me of John Campbell, the SF editor, who used to publish some extremely provocative editorials. He was very reactionary but claimed his editorials were meant to make people think outside their comfort zones. It takes a great teacher to pull that off successfully and constructively...and Andy is no great teacher. London Grump (talk) 08:24, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Andy knows damn well he is talking shite. Thing is once he has an insight he will never EVER back down and admit fault. Witness his son of man drivel in the arguments with August. As for why August and Sam continue. My own guess is that they started out trying improve the crap over at cp but after witnessing andy's idiocy, ken's gibbering inanity and anger bears knee-jerk hatred of anything and everything they gave up on that and now I suspect they are both really just having some fun seeing how far they can push the loonies over there before they are finally banned. And the reason they are not banned is so the loonies over there can pretend to be open-minded by letting them post. I reckon it will be vargasmilan who finally pulls the triger by the way. Which of us is running him this month? Oldusgitus (talk) 10:23, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
I think both August and Sam have said they do it because someone has to think of the children. Ajkgordon (talk) 14:16, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Andy linked to the Nobel ceremony speech honoring Cockcroft and Walton back in 1951, saying "One experiment would not prove a formula like E=mc2, and the Cockroft and Watson experiment was not even recognized for being consistent with the formula." Reading the speech at that link leads us to the following paragraph:
"The analysis made by Cockcroft and Walton of the energy relations in a transmutation is of particular interest, because a verification was provided by this analysis for Einstein's law concerning the equivalence of mass and energy. Energy is liberated in the transmutation of lithium, because the total kinetic energy of the helium nuclei produced is greater than that of the original nuclei. According to Einstein's law, this gain in energy must be paid for by a corresponding loss in the mass of the atomic nuclei. This assertion was satisfactorily confirmed by Cockcroft and Walton, experimental errors being taken into consideration. Somewhat later, more exact investigations based on the same principles gave a complete verification of Einstein's law."
I don't know whether he's trolling, straight up a liar, or just dumb as fuck. Or some combo thereof. It's gone beyond flagrant into simply baffling. Do judges feel the same thing I do now? Is that why they laugh at him?.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 23:55, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
As for a practical application of E=Mc2, an example that Andy would understand as he loves his weaponry, is the USS Enterprise. It was in commission for nearly 50 years, sailed millions of miles and had to refuel ONCE. Impossible with conventional fuel.--Mercian (talk) 00:09, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Trying to put Andy's maunderings into the form of a coherent argument, perhaps one could say that it is just a coincidence that the mass difference is equal to the energy difference over c^2. Like it's a coincidence that the Moon is just big enough to produce total solar eclipses from time to time, without that implying any underlying relationship between the two. Or that Lincoln was shot in Ford's Theater and Kennedy was shot in a Ford Lincoln. No doubt I give Andru too much credit for having a coherent worldview on the matter.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 01:33, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
This reminds me of CP's utterly deranged Moon article. The talk page is a hoot too. Cantabrigian (talk) 20:56, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

VargasMilan is trolling SamHBimg in perfect Markman style (parrot insane Andy position as if it makes sense, in order to get innoculated).

Calling him Ken[edit]

So, this is a topic brought up at the coop about doxxing, and should probably be atleast mentioned on the page most of the CP community actually watches and could likely end up effecting how we handle CP space So, how did we acquire the real name of Conservative (amongst others) and his hometown? how much was he doxxed and should we really be perpetrating said dox if there's no explicit connection between Demyer and Conservative, even if it is the truth?--Miekal 22:23, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

As an old timer I know that no-one at CP was doxxed and everyone there either explicitly stated there names publicly or implicitly left an internet trail easy enough to follow without ever needing to dox anyone. Ken for example used a variation of his real name and location on Wikipedia before Conservapedia as well as on other sites. Acei9 23:15, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
There is an unbroken trail on the internet from Ken Demyer through KdBuffalo to User:Conservative, which was public knowledge before the founding of this site. (A bit redundant with the previous, but a bit more evidentiary.) Whoover (talk) 23:31, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Is stalking someone on their internet trail and releasing its contents not doxxing? oʇɐʇoԀʇɐϽʎzznℲ (talk/stalk) 23:53, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Fuck sake, he was known as Ken DeMyer before Rationalwiki as he used his own name in a number of places. No doxxing needed. Acei9 23:59, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Doxing has to involve more than a google search or two. If the doxee posts some distinctive, signature opinions under his own name and then a screen name, and third parties are likely to see both, he's doxed himself. If those third parties then share this information, I don't see how it can be considered unethical. It's a far cry from hacking databases for confidential information. Whoover (talk) 00:58, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Cause RW is pro-anti-GG and anti-CP?--Arisboch (talk) 12:10, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Not having obsessively followed GG but knowing some of the background I suspect that for some, myself included, the issue with GG is the not very disguised 'undercurrent' of mysogny. As for Ken, for those with longer memories I'm sure they will recall him doxing someone from here and then setting out to try to destroy that persons business. At that stage I had no idea who ken was, he was just user:conservative to me, and it wasn't until he tried to ruin someone professionally that I heard who he was and his background. He has brought all this on himself imo and fuck him with regard to doxing quite frankly. I feel sorry for him, he needs someone to help him and he needs friends and it is patently obvious he has doesn't really have any of either. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:20, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Those who have been involved or have followed the creationist presence on the internet for the last decade and more know the many characters involved. Ken has been one of the weirder ones with a particular style that is easy to spot from a considerable distance. It has never been a secret who his various pseudonyms are, including Conservative. He uses his identities interchangeably - sometimes through ineptitude, sometimes because he doesn't seem to care. He even responds to "Ken" while logged in as somebody else. While his style is invariably the same (by that I mean his writing and arguing style), his behaviour can swing quite wildly. This has lead to some extremes including his (incompetent) attack on the professional life of an early user on RW. Although a wiki or forum is never a place to diagnose the conditions he has had attributed to him, it seems his stale thought processes and arguing style are so firmly entrenched that he cannot change tack or use new ideas. He recycles old and discredited techniques and creationist positions, even those that fellow creationists have firmly disavowed. Year after year he claims the exact same things are going to happen to evolutionism or atheism. Because of all this, opponents simply treat his collective identities as one (which they are) and point out where he failed in his same arguments the last time. It's economical and effective rather than vindictive. Ajkgordon (talk) 22:38, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

SC Murderer[edit]

While I'm pleased to see that CP is recognizing the racial aspect of the crime, I am somewhat amused/dismayed to see Andy characterize him as a "bigtime Facebook user". This coming after numerous sites have noticed how inactive his Facebook has been and how it looks quite sparse. Not to mention he's been named a video game player. No mention yet of his political affiliation or religious views. AyzmoCheers 00:44, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm sure Andy's gonna claim him to be one of the political affiliations he has on his shit list, but why is he mentioning Facebook? Adny doesn't like FB?--Arisboch (talk) 00:47, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
I'm sure Andy's offspring are facebook users and I'm sure CollegeRepublican plays the occasional video game. Does that make them potential mass murderers ? Ghost (talk) 01:06, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Andy hates Facebook. It's liberal for some reason. But the "bigtime" is a flat-out lie. I looked at the profile before they took it down. There was practically no activity. I've go 85-year old relatives who are way bigger users. And Andy never addresses the fact that 99% of young men play video games. You might as well argue that Coca-Cola drives young men to murder. How the hell does a lawyer keep repeating a "fact" so easily debunked, as by "99% of young men play video games"? How does a judge resist the temptation to choke him during his arguments? Whoover (talk) 04:38, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Andy Has Another Insight[edit]

I swear that Andy lives just to troll AugustO. His latest insight is that "logos" doesn't mean "word," it means "perfection." You might recall that the liberal Bill Gates is to blame for the situation.img You know, "perfection" like in scienceimg. "Perfection" as a scientific concept is not even wrong. AugustO losesimg, of course. Whoover (talk) 19:54, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Seriously, does CP exist anymore to do much but troll a few diehards and be a canvas for a few weird obsessives? -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 20:35, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
AugustO is not taking the "Perfection is the scientific term for Word and thus belongs in the Conservative Bible" insight at all wellimg. "Mumbo-jumbo" is another term for "not even wrong," I'll agree. AugustO! Step away for your own good. Whoover (talk) 06:47, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Eager to show AugustO the power of his new insight on the application of scientific senses when translating the Greek Bible, Andy uses a citation from 1 Kings about the remnant of male prostitutesimg and asks "What is the cardinality of the remnant?img To tie it all together, he pees on Set Theoryimg. No Greek, except that kind of Greek. Whoover (talk) 22:28, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Andy: Racist atheism[edit]

Looks like Andy was inspired to create a new article: Racist atheismimg. The article is so out there that Conservative has to correct it: "Andy, I don't think the historical evidence supports that Hitler was an atheist."img. Yes, in a discussion about Hitler and atheism Conservative is the voice of reason. That's how far Andy has gone. --Night Jaguar (talk) 04:57, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

I suspect statements from Roof's pastor about how he's being ministered to in jail won't make it into this article. Whoover (talk) 06:40, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Of course not, cause Roof ain't an atheist, duh. nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 02:51, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Conservative view of Affordable Care Act[edit]

The Supreme Court has now handed down its decision in King v. Burwell, which decided that taxpayers can get tax credits in states that have health care exchanges operated by the Federal Government. Conservative Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion. The real question here was whether the-true-conservative-approach to health care reform is to take Congress seriously and wait for a majority of Congress and a President to change (or improve) the law or to find nitpicky hypertechnical arguments to use to challenge the law in Court. A majority of the Supreme Court and many people take the first view, Andy has spent most of his legal activity in the past six years taking the second approach. Although Andy's personal efforts could not get within the courthouse doors in a meaningful way, the King v. Burwell decision sends a clear blow to his entire approach. In plain English, the Supreme Court is saying to Andy and his friends, "You got to be kidding. Grow up." I eagerly await Andy's coverage of this case on CP. Hclodge (talk) 17:16, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Terry calls it extortionimg. The theory is that Obama is personally blackmailing Roberts -- threatening to take away his adopted children because he knows they were illegally adopted in Ireland. Really. The main evidence is that the kids don't look Hispanic enough to be from Latin America, as Roberts says. It's all over the internets so it must be true. Whoover (talk) 03:19, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
I actually read John Roberts' opinion. The guy deserves a medal for the clarity of his writing about a very complex topic. I didn't get very far with Scalia's dissent, which is a rant about the precise wording of one phrase in the Affordable Care Act. The opinions are the other way round from what Terry Butthurt says they are. Roberts may not like the Act but he sees his job as making sure that the intentions of the law passed by Congress are compatible with the Constitution. Scalia is the person who's trying to rewrite legislation, by nit-picking about whether the word 'State' does or doesn't include functions which the Federal govt assumes when State govts refuse to enact federal legislation. I would try explaining this to Andy but I'd get further with explaining integral calculus to my dog. Cardinal Fang (talk) 10:17, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Supreme Court & gay marriage[edit]

I'm waiting to see what Schlafly having a total meltdown looks like... As Justice Kennedy wrote the majority opinion, Andy can't claim that the liberal atheist communist element of the SC is imposing its views on an unwilling country. (Or can he...???) Cardinal Fang (talk) 14:29, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Of course he will, you so misunderestimating (LOLz) Andy's insanity.--Arisboch (talk) 14:32, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

The Supreme Court's decision is posted. I suspect that Andy will leave it to others (Cons and Karajou) to play it out on the Main Page with an appropriate talk page debate. I bet that CP will never have an article entitled "Obergefell v. Hodges". Hclodge (talk) 16:13, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Obergefell v. Hodges. "The decision is the boldest move yet against the Bible by the Court yet, in implicitly declaring as false the numerous teachings and warnings in the Bible against homosexual conduct." --104.156.228.136 (talk) 19:21, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
The Bible also demands slavery for the children of Ham ("black"): "And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren." (Genesis 9:25) That's why emancipation was declared anti-Christian. The trial judge who sentenced the Lovings to a year in prison for racial defilement in 1959 declared, "Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, Malay and red, and He placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with His arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that He separated the races shows that He did not intend for the races to mix." When the Supreme Court overruled him (in Loving v. Virginia, which was cited in today's ruling), it was decried as the most anti-Christian ruling since emancipation. Andy isn't much of a history buff, is he? Whoover (talk) 20:01, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
The courts also allowed barbers to be open (Leviticus 19:27), fried chicken to be sold (Leviticus 3:17), and cheeseburgers to be sold (Exodus 23:19). Sounds like the lawmakers have a lot to do in order to make America more compliant with biblical morality. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 20:07, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
Only 5 votes [16]. Of course if it had been 5 votes against it would have been a landslide. As for liberal atheists imposing gay marriage, they did so in Ireland[17] despite a large majority voting for it in a free and democratic referendum.--Mercian (talk) 21:54, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
Everybody knows there's no such thing as free and democratic referendum in socialist Europe. Vulpius (talk) 01:11, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
I'm sure if their side had won 5-4 Andy would be humble in victory. He would not exaggerate the significance of the win and declare "GIVE IT UP, LIBERALS!!!!". Nope, that would not be like him at all. --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:48, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Well, this is a major breakthrough for Andy, who recently had confined his labors to blocking users, the Main Page, the Talk:Main Page and select content pages dealing with evolution and relativity. It is nice that someone is adding substance to this fine conservative educational tool. Perhaps we should consider the impact of CP on American society:

Pre-Conservapedia

  • Women like Anita Bryant and Phyllis Schlafly were respected thought leaders
  • Republicans like Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush and George W Bush were elected President.
  • Health care reform bill successfully defeated in Congress for 30 years
  • America was proud, and Conservatives called for national unity
  • Family values were well-accepted in America

Post-Conservapedia

  • Sarah Palin dropped by Fox News
  • Barack Obama elected and re-elected President
  • Health care reform under the Affordable Care Act gains widespread acceptance
  • In many, many articles, CP actively promotes migration to the "American Redoubt" and surrender of civic engagement by Conservatives in 90% of the nation.
  • People blindly believe what they read on the internet, and many more people turn to Wikipedia rather than Conservapedia for their information. Andy lost the search engine wars.
  • Stephen Colbert's reach and influence grows dramatically following his mocking of CP.
  • Same sex marriage is recognized as a fundamental Constitutional right
  • CP has become widely accepted as the exemplar for Conservative thought in many online liberal discussions.

So, is America a better place with CP than without CP? Would the time that Conservatives volunteer to CP under Andy's leadership be better spent working on a 2016 Presidential campaign? Think about it. Hclodge (talk) 13:35, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

If significant numbers of influential conservatives were wasting their time editing CP instead of running deceitful think-tanks and lobbying congressmen in Washington then yes, CP would be making America a better place. Sadly, that's not the case. Cardinal Fang (talk) 22:27, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Football World cup[edit]

So andy has just added a section to the FIFA World Cup article about the womens world cup having started in 1991. and I was wondering why he'd suddenly woken up to this. Then I realised that tomorrow USA play Germany in the semi's. I'm not sure which will be better, Germany winning sending Ken mad with hatred for athestic Germany and AugustO or the US winning and Andy trying to pretend he understand and likes football. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:10, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

You don't get it -- CP is cheering for Germany. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 20:30, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Of course this shithead would cheer for the CDU's blocking of gay marriage, but if he would look closely at their positions, they'd be pinko commies to him.--Arisboch (talk) 05:37, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
If the godless, gay-luvvin' USA meets godless, gay-luvvin' England in the final, which side will Andy want his god to support? My guess is England, just because Cameron isn't Obama (even though the UK Tory party is slightly to the left of the US Democrats). Cardinal Fang (talk) 23:38, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
If the US beats Germany, what will Andy say? His world was predicated on the gay-marriage drained US losing to the God-fearing frauleins. He's going to have to go with something like lesbians aren't as icky as gay men, so God was merciful this time. Whoover (talk) 00:50, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
What's amazing to me is that Andy believes in a god that fixes soccer games to show His infinite displeasure. --Inquisitor (talk) 00:59, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
He's doubling down on the paranoid fantasy that the liberal establishment will insist Germany be excluded from future gamesimg because Christians are persecuted. Wouldn't one other person have to utter a sentiment before Andy can claim all liberals are saying something? Whoover (talk) 02:38, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
If he really needed a reason to want someone besides the US to win, he could cite a distaste for anything that could be construed as supportive of Hope Solo. Somehow, though, I don't think he's smart enough to find that escape valve. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 05:34, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
And the USA beat Germany 2-0. This is proof that God disapproves of Conservapedia in general, and Andypants specifically. And that God approves of recent Supreme Court rulings. One of them, at least. --Maxus (talk) 06:53, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Knowing Andy, he'll declare the match to be a fluke; the USA team to be "overrated" and the single news site that covers it will be declared as proof of a Liberal agenda to inflate how important this is. Ken, meanwhile, will say football (the real one) lacks machismo so it just 'proves' that girly American teams are more girly than girly German teams, so therefore Germany was the real winner.-- Forerunner (talk) 07:00, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

@Inquisitor: God finds it much easier to fix football matches than multi-sided civil wars, homicidal religious maniacs, drought, famine, degradation of the climate and mass extinction of animals. Cardinal Fang (talk) 11:34, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

How pissed at same-sex marriage must God be, to inflict a humiliating own goal on the UK? Japan has no same-sex marriage, thus proving that God prefers pagans who hate teh gays to Christians who don't. Andy should be all over this, like white on rice. Whoover (talk) 02:09, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
An own goal is bad. Very bad. There's no way of knowing why God was ruthlessly punishing the UK. Marriage equality? Serving beans with breakfast? Who knows? This is a serious portent indeed. --Inquisitor (talk) 08:47, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
There could be quite a lot of things which have got God wound up about the UK. Eating black pudding (Leviticus 3:17), using real wine for Holy Communion (Lev 10:9) and not leaving wide enough field margins (Lev 19:9) are all possibilities. Maybe he got peeved about prawn cocktail being a popular snack (Lev 11:10). My top candidate is that he's really cross about able-bodied young people not standing up for oldies on the Tube (Lev 19:32) - I'm with him on that one. And how entirely appropriate that he decided to punish the England Ladies football team for the inconsiderate behaviour of London commuters. Cardinal Fang (talk) 22:47, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Strange CNAV "Editorial," Even for CNAV[edit]

Terry's latest guest articleimg makes even less sense than his typical offering. Article here. Darwin apparently plagiarized a Peruvian Jew, but I can't tell if that makes evolution better or worse. There are a bunch of other Jews mentioned but they might not be Jewish enough for the author. Apparently Netanyahu is now a squish, which makes Trump more important. Finally there's a crack about the "Amazon-like" Ruth Bader Ginsburg, all five feet and 100 pounds of her. Can anyone translate this nonsense into English? Whoover (talk) 03:14, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

I was intrigued enough by this to read the article that Terry's partner-in-crime cites for the 'Peruvian Jew' story. It's on creation.com, surprise surprise. I searched within the article for <peru> and <jew> and found nothing. The whole thing is an interesting example of how lying, cheating creationists (and homoeopaths and climate-change deniers) grasp at a shred of truth but twist and distort it beyond all recognition. E.g. the idea that Darwin's uncle Erasmus Darwin was the real discoverer of evolution by natural selection is well-known to be untrue (see WP's page on E.D.) Patrick Matthew is acknowledged to have had the basic idea of the origin of species by natural selection but, as Darwin wrote, it was a "complete but not developed anticipation" - like Wallace's. Matthew's contribution was even more obscure than Wallace's, as it was in a short appendix to a textbook on naval architecture! Which Darwin admitted he had never read. The creation.com article doesn't mention James Hutton, the other person who could justifiably be said to have thought of evolution by natural selection, so I doubt the author actually put much effort into writing it. Perhaps the most bizarre thing is that whoever wrote the article seems to think that if the basic idea of evolution by natural selection was thought up 3 or 4 times independently - not unlike special relativity - that invalidates Darwin's work. Surely the exact opposite!! Well, I've summarised all you need to know about this article so you don't need to waste your time reading it yourself. Cardinal Fang (talk) 11:29, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Terry's pal, Paul Eidelberg, writes about "research in South America" showing that Darwin nicked his ideas from a Jewish person in Peru. In fact, he's written essentially the same wacky article for several ultra-conservative on-line magazines/blogs. But I can't find anything else on the net about this "Jew from Peru" story. Does anyone here know what on earth Eidelberg is on about? I'm interested in the history of genetics and evolution and another forerunner of Darwin in addition to Hutton, Matthew and Wallace is of genuine interest. If he actually existed...

As this seems to be a (mostly) Germany vs Greece argument this at a glance seems confusing. I can't help feel this is an issue of Andy hating anything and everything about Obama. Obama is a firm supporter of the EU so it must be bad. If Obama turned the USA into a theocracy, installed capital punishment for abortion, apostasy and blasphemy and completely abolished taxation and welfare he would still hate him. It's personal.--Mercian (talk) 15:07, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

CP Userbox of the Year[edit]

I am willing to consider alternative nominations, but to me, the clear winner is the box:

This user is happy to be part of the Conservapedia community

that appears on TAR's userpage. It is dripping with irony because, TAR is not an active contributing member of the CP "community". When he was active, he was constantly getting into disputes with long-time community members. He never tried to fit into the "community" and ignored their social patterns and even CP's Manual of Style. He did not collaborate or take suggestions well. On the whole, TAR was one very unhappy guy. Hclodge (talk) 02:30, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Troll of the Year?[edit]

This guy JohnLambert has been turning the "Liberal" article into a satirical pieceimg, making changes to "clarify" that all, not just someimg, liberals support treason, child abuse, communism, facism, etc., etc. He has raised his creation to art by inserting, among all the hate, that liberals are rude to Republicans.img Whoover (talk) 15:28, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

I guess if my efforts to build an online editor community had managed to drive absolutely everyone away, I would possibly resort to editing under multiple sign-ons to create the appearance of a collaborative environment.

Statistics of the Year[edit]

There are 148,739,000 employed Americans, as of June 2015. The population is about 319,000,000. Therefore, the worst you can possibly make the unemployment rate is 53.5%. That counts every newborn, toddler, student, retiree, Alzheimer's patient and prisoner as unemployed.

That's not quite good enough for Terry's pal Dwight Kehoe. He's gotten it up to 57.97%. Did he have to use dead people to prove that Obama is the liar-in-chief? Not at all. He merely divided the unemployed, including young'uns and retirees, into the labor market, excluding those groups. Okay, it's a statistic. Totally meaningless, but it's a statistic. Whoover (talk) 01:00, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Dwight Kehoe is just out-and-out a perfect exemplar of the Dunning-Kruger Effect. Ignorant as shit, but thinks his analysis is brilliant and cuts through all the deceptive fog thrown up by liberals. Dwight also thinks that: water expands 20% when it freezes, melting of floating ice makes water levels fall, and that CO2 is 'almost 4 times' heavier than 02 and is not toxic or poisonous. He also doesn't know how to calculate percentages. Anytime he uses a number, just assume that he's using it wrong.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 02:52, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

That goes without saying. I can understand them claiming the real unemployment figure is 53.5%. Obama cooks the books by giving the comatose a pass to get to his fake 5.8%. I get that. Perfectly reasonable. But why cook the numbers to get to 58%? Counting the comatose as unemployed and removing them from the population (a kind of double-counting the comatose) makes a pretty easy case for some Liberal Denial. Maybe that's the point.

A new Andy insight!![edit]

The article formerly known as "Longest liberal hoaxes." Which is a handy collection of Andy's crazy toes. Piltdown Man (because that was totally a scheme dreamed up by the Global Evolutionist Army), global cooling (but strangely not global warming), population explosion (yeah, because adding 4 billion people in 30-odd years totally isn't an explosion.)

I look forward to more nuttiness being added to this list. PsyGremlinSprich! 14:56, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Is "global cooling" conservative correctness for Global Warming?--Arisboch (talk) 14:59, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Sometimes it is, but it depends on the context. If you're trying to claim that global warming is a liberal hoax, you refer to the fringe scientific data from the '70s and '80s which suggested cooling (strangely you don't hear about all that data from the same period which said the opposite), and you use that as evidence of data tampering. However, when applied to the present day it's just as easy to claim cooling is a liberal hoax. The Daily Mail did a move when they reinterpreted some interesting scientific data on average global snow loss in mountain ranges to mean "the Himalayas didn't lose much snow, thus global warming isn't happening", using it later to back up claims that the world really must be getting colder and colder. Once left-leaning newspapers like The Guardian fell for it, the mail declared global cooling to be a hoax perpetuated by lefties; since Mail readers quickly forget articles that aren't intended to piss them off, they avoided flak.- Forerunner (talk) 16:36, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Hmm... According to the table the so-called Hugo Chavez hoax has so far lasted 84 days. I can’t see any scripts running on the page so does Andy plan on manually updating it every day? Of course, he could have just put “since <date>”, but thinking ahead is for progressives. On the other hand, I don’t know why I even thought of this when the rest of the article is just another display of Andy brain dribble. JumboWhales (talk) 18:36, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
It lasted 84 days from when Chavez went into the hospital until his death. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 19:18, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Ah, thanks. Still, I wonder if Andy's planning on popping into the page from time to time to update the other durations, such as for evolution. I’m not wondering too much and may just have my suspicions, if I’m honest. JumboWhales (talk) 20:06, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
I can't figure out why Andy didn't add "Castro has been dead since 2006," one of his favorites. Another, ahem, editor couldn't take it either and added it for him. But its omission in the original list was as perplexing as global warming's. Whoover (talk) 20:14, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

CP-related cover articles could do with a polish-up[edit]

per RationalWiki:Saloon_bar#Coverstory_cull - I think both should stay gold brained, but to be fair there's a lot of ancient feature articles that are looking not so good by our heightened standards of the modern day. If the deeply-familiar could look over the CP ones, that'd be an excellent thing - David Gerard (talk) 12:37, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Is it even worth keeping CP as a cover story? The site really has zero reference outside RW any more, it's not even being quoted as a "look at what batshit conservatives are doing now!" example. PsyGremlinSprich! 10:15, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
Even on RW it makes up a very small percentage of recent content. I have not done the maths but saying that 1 in 100 posts relates to CP is being very generous. It is so predictable, if a mass shooting happens we all know what their response will be before it is posted, same for gay marriage etc. Ken's new articles are simply a cut/paste of his older content, and even he is less rabid than in the past. Andy pops up with the occasional insight we have all heard before and Karajou does nothing except ban people with snarky comments. Today it is little (nothing?) more than and extension of CNAV and Tea Party Crusaders. It's irrelevant and boring.--Mercian (talk) 12:15, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
CNaV? You mean those jokers?--Arisboch (talk) 12:17, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

On What Planet?[edit]

Andy's "liberals hate Christians" leitmotif has a new expression in Underrated Sport Starsimg. One of the first three is baseball Hall-of-Famer Stan Musial. Andy's own justification for calling him underrated is "Seven batting titles, three championships, and overall statistics better than nearly everyone; ESPN called him one of the five best players of all-time, and Bill James ranked him as #7 all-time." How the hell is Stan Musial underrated? And Serena Williams? His paranoid delusions seem to be getting stronger. Whoover (talk) 05:46, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

He answers this in his own dribbling. Where he says "(notice how none are on the list of Greatest Conservative Sports Stars):" So because he and the other loons at cp haven't included them on their arbitrary list of the greatest conservative sports stars they are underrated. QED. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:03, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
I will give him Stan Musial, though he is consistently ranked as one of the best players ever by baseball historians, the casual fan does not appreciate how good he is, mostly because he played in St. Louis rather than New York or Boston. Tim Duncan and Serena Williams is pure lunacy though. Tim Duncan is almost universally ranked as the greatest power forward of all time, and Serena Williams is ranked in the top two or three female tennis players of all time. I wonder sometimes if this guy even follows sports or if his sports knowledge is derived from simply Googling "Christian sports stars". Snrub (talk) 14:34, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
To the extent that the casual fan knows anything about a player who retired over 50 years ago, he knows Stan the Man. ESPN's Hall of 100 has him just ahead of Mickey Mantle. Calling Musial "underrated," and pinning it on anti-Christian bigotry, is evidence of a disconnect from reality. Whoover (talk) 15:32, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

If you thought the CBP was bad...[edit]

It turns out that Andy isn't so sureimg about God being omniscient or omnibenevolent. No word on omnipotent at this point. To his credit, he does seem to recognize that an eternal Hell means that JHWH doesn't seem to have everyone's best interests at heart. That does rather simplify the Problem of Evil.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 07:50, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Bad? The Conservative Bible Project is the greatest Not the Onion on the entire internet. And I have given you dental hygiene in all your cities, and lack of bread in all your places: but you didn't return to me, said the LORD.img ("The Bible forewarns that "free" healthcare will come with famines.") It just can't get any better. Whoover (talk) 15:36, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Andy: "Several accounts in the Old Testament suggests that God did an investigation in order to learn the facts. All-knowing would be uninteresting, and my guess is that God has chosen not to be all-knowing. But he has the power to find out when He wants to." LMAO! First, I like the image of God doing an investigation. A tired God with a five o'clock shadow staring at papers scattered across his desk. Second, I heard something on NPR the other day about a new Broadway comedy, An Act of God. This comedy has God (played by Jim Parsons) saying pretty much what Andy said. Has he officially become indistinguishable from parody?--Night Jaguar (talk) 10:27, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
So, Andy's God isn't all powerful, isn't everywhere at once, doesn't know everything and doesn't love everybody. At least it's compatible with the God he's described all these years, who usually only interferes in human affairs to fix the outcome of sporting events and who freezes old people in Britain to death just for a laugh. Spud (talk) 13:49, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
No, the God of Andy's theology does have all those attributes. He just "chooses" not to use them, even if it would benefit the world. Coincidentally, this is similar to Andy's definition of a liberal (one who can do great things, but always chooses to do the opposite).-- Forerunner (talk) 14:19, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

More Relativity from Andy[edit]

Andy is attacking E=mc² with renewed vigor. Maybe Trump is inspiring him.

First he yanked some wikiversity lecture links that interfered with his narrative as "Wikipedia logic"img and yanked Einstein's name because "people don't own formulas."img

Then, we have a new article, "Attempts to prove E=mc²" with arguments of such strength as "A common defect to these "proofs" is an unjustified assumption that the energy and momentum of a physical system have a dependence on velocity akin to a moving participle."img Goodluck with your asparagus. Whoover (talk) 02:18, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

He's added "Nuclear-fission reactions, such as the transformation of hydrogen to helium, do not demonstrate any connection between the rest energy of a mass and the speed of light, as E=mc² asserts."img Start the countdown to AugustO sputtering the math of H2 atomic weight minus He atomic weight equaling released energy over c², followed by Andy going "la la la."

Andy and Free Speech[edit]

Andy rips Megyn Kelly onimg freeimg speechimg groundsimg for pointing out that Trump calls women names. I wonder how Trump became the Next Great True Conservative. But more interesting is Andy's notion that free speech is not about one having the right to say whatever crap one wants to (I don't recall any media outlet being bashful about quoting him) but apparently is about the right to have everyone agree with what you said. Kelly just asked if asking a game show contestant for a blowjob might strike some female voters as unpresidential. Does Andy really see that question as being a violation of Trumps constitutional rights? I guess he does. Whoover (talk) 20:22, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Teapartycrusaders? Anyone? ...Anyone?[edit]

So since CP has gone into the next phase of the long slow slide into oblivion by way of getting really boring, I've found myself some entertainment by going to the right-page links and measuring the degree to which the facts disagree with the headline. This sometimes points me to CNAV - which I actively avoid, due to me not wanting to provide ad-cash to the likes of Conservative - but lately something like half of the links are to tea party crusaders. Unlike CP, comments can actually be posted in their drivel 'articles'! Also unlike CP, they usually respond to actual thoughts and valid criticism with just killing the entire comment thread rather than selective deletion. Which is how I know I've won, I guess? Anyway, I found that there is no actual way to contact TPC or the myriad shadow entities who run the site. No e-mail, no names listed, no organizations other than TPC are mentioned. There is a link to their Facebook group, sucking hole of bile that it is, which has no more leads. Since I have the old, I'm no good at digging things up on the Interconnected Network, and maybe some of you just have keener eyes than me. So what is TPC? A clickbait front for one of CP's minions? A total stranger that they just glommed onto for right-page filler? A Koch-fueled cog in the vast Right Wing Machine? Or is it just Chinatown? --Semipenultimate (talk) 17:56, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Those Wacky Liberal Scientists Again[edit]

I'm always struck by how much misinformation Andy can cram in a couple of sentences. Today's article is Napa Valleyimg where he conflates "Napa Valley" (an informal designation of a viticultural region draining the Napa River), Napa County (whose population he ascribes to "Napa Valley") and the city of Napa (the county seat of Napa County and epicenter of a 2014 earthquake).

The point of the article is really, "It was struck in 2014 by a massive earthquake unexpected by liberal experts, who pretend that earthquakes are most likely to occur around major fault lines instead." This is vintage Andy. He dismisses the liberal theory that earthquakes have to do with faults, but doesn't offer his alternate theory. I assume it's "God is pissed off, probably because of gays." But he's too chicken to come out and assert it, so he snipes at stupid scientists and their earthquake faults instead. Compared to Andy, Conservative is valiant. We don't call out Andy's passive-aggressive bullshit often enough. Whoover (talk) 22:11, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

TAR[edit]

It has been about five months since TAR has last graced the pages of Conservapedia. All of his spam farm remains in place to promote James Wesley Rawles and his wonderful books. Meanwhile, Messrs. Rawles and TAR have failed to make good on their promise of reciprocal promotion of CP. TAR had left the CP category structure in chaos, and nobody has step up to fix it. TAR has left numerous red links for articles that had promised to write. Finally TAR left a lot of material promoting the notion that true Conservatives should disengage from political life in the United States and immigrate to Idaho in order to focus upon the imminent collapse of the US. Implicit in the agreement to block all of TAR's critics was the promise that TAR would deliver the goods for CP; instead TAR has left CP a mess and has frozen out a number of productive editors in TAR's wake.

Why would CP not ban someone who came only to "call them out"? Sorry, but I don't see any problem at all with simply banning someone who came to a Wiki for no other reason than to start an argument. There's plenty to mock CP for, but banning trolls isn't really mockable. Phiwum (talk) 13:36, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Not really the point as I suspect you know. The point is that whoever it was, it wasn't me, asked them about their blatant hypocrisy and they essentially refused to address the point and then blocked the poster to prevent him further showing them up. If someone comes here to 'call out' they tend to be addressed, their points rebutted and only if they continue they are blocked. Wikipedia doesn't block people straight off, they tend to be warned and advised. CP simply wil not confront their own lies and hypocrisy, prefering instead to silence any 'opposition' before shouting about liberal censorship. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:49, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Eh, if you say so. I thought it was an obvious troll who generated some discussion and received the block he deserved. Yes, CP is hypocritical when it comes to the sins of conservatives vs. liberals. Not a brilliant insight there, just trying to throw a little tiff on a talk page.

Emerald, they aren't presented as mutually exclusive. Here are two categories that are mutually exclusive: cheese and garden tools. Now, if I say, "This is a cheese, but not a garden tool," then the "but not" clause is utterly redundant -- because it is a cheese, it cannot be something that is mutually exclusive with being a cheese. I've added no information.
Here are too categories that are not mutually exclusive: cheese and orange things. If I say, "This is a cheese, but it is not orange," then I've said something meaningful. Only when two categories are not mutually exclusive does the "but not" clause add any information. If X is mutually exclusive with Y, then "This is X but not Y" is redundant.

I was about to say, it's been a while since Andy positioned "Conservapedia" as some sort of actual collective voice doing something outside of itself.

Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 03:48, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Every organization needs an identity and needs leadership. Previously, CP was identified in terms of not being Wikipedia: seeing WP's bias and avoiding it. Leadership was involved in building a team and working toward a common goal: an encyclopedia without liberal bias. But leaders also try to lead by example. So, Andy jumped in and gave his personal spin on topics such as the number of conservative words growing exponentially; evolution and relativity. Now, most people are not experts on those topics, so with a little faith, unless the reader was diligent, one could accept the final work product. If there was any doubt, one could find at least other Christian conservatives who share Andy's views on Obamacare, birth certificates, evolution and relativity. At least Andy's cp:Essay:Best New Conservative Words is an essay and not an encyclopedia article.

The big problem with the unplug the NFL article is that it is 100% Andy's views and it is focused upon a major centerpiece of American life. Every homeschooled male student is already more of an expert on the NFL than Andy. There is a billion dollar per year propaganda machine already in place filling the public discourse with the exact opposite of Andy's new preaching. So, while John Oliver can take on the NFL on the narrow issue of public funding of stadiums,[20] nobody (not even Andy or Barack H. Obama combined) has the power to create daylight between the NFL and the American public. So, how many people did Andy consult before "Conservapedia" launched this campaign? How can we measure whether the CP community is behind it?

By the way, I should mention (although the Unplug the NFL article failed to do so) that there are no NFL teams playing in the cp:American Redoubt. Hclodge (talk) 06:53, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

I actually have some sympathy with Tebow. Despite his wingnuttery he is obviously a talented player, but American Football being insular means you could be one of the top 30 quarterbacks in the world and never get a game. Andy is talking bullshit though. If Tebow were a top 10 quarterback he would play no matter what his views or background. The main goal of a professional sports team is to win and they will overlook almost anything if it helps them achieve this. Luis Suarez is a good example of this. He is a troubled individual but he in the top 5 strikers in the world and despite his record Barcelona payed £70 million for him. If Tebow was as good as Andy makes out he would be playing for a top NFL side week in week out. I am guessing that his wage demands for a back up player were too high for the Eagles so they went for the cheaper option. He was not rejected by the NFL but by the Eagles and if they were as Andy describes them they would not have given him a trial in the first place. --Mercian (talk) 10:56, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

What I find hilarious is that Andrew doesn't seem to understand that these teams are run for profit which in his philosophy is an excellent thing, but he also wants the owners of the teams to select players simply because he likes the player's religious beliefs. Someone could produce some sort of spreadsheet thing that shows all the contradictions in the poor chap's statements over the years. Although if he read it he'd possibly not understand it. And it would be huge. Sphincter (talk) 21:54, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

If CP advocates capitalism, it should realize that the NFL represents a marketplace which hires and pays players based on their value. If the Eagles release Tim, it frees up salary dollars that can be spent on hiring players in all positions. Although the next backup quarterback may not be as pious as Tim, God may be directing the salary dollars to some fine Christian lineman without Andy fully appreciating God's plan.

To be fair, it does seem that a lot of media views it that way. The BBC pretty much called it a coup in the article I read. I know the definition is technically that of a violent takeover, but in common usage a vote of no confidence, as it seems this was, and subsequent change of leadership could be seen as a coup. That being said, CP didn't actually call it a coup. They're seemingly angry that it was an entirely government/party affair. What's more interesting is that he has so little understanding of what the Liberal Party in Oz actually stands for and clearly thinks it is similar to in the US.

SamHB has done none of those things. Look up the defintion of troll--Mercian (talk) 14:30, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
The mere fact you have posted here confirms that you are quite frankly. In 5 years or so I've been a member here (and over at cp as it happens) I've not known a single good faith editor with your kind of edit record at cp come here to defend themselves. The saddest fact is that I'd worked you out within your first 20 days at cp but andy still seems to think you are good faith. It's sad how stupid and repeatedly gullible he and his cohorts are. Oldusgitus (talk) 16:08, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
Given Andy's track record, being held in good faith by him is virtually proof positive that you're a parodist.

The Pope and the Zombie[edit]

How's Andy going to play the latest photo-op with the Pope and Fidel, who's been dead since 2006? Will he continue with the body double? Or does tricking two Popes begin to cast too much doubt on the whole infallibility thing for Catholic Andy? Or is tricking this commie papal pretender evidence that Conservapedia is Proven Right yet again? Or does he just ignore it? Whoover (talk) 23:31, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Francis is too liberal for conservative American catholics like Andy; to him it wouldn't matter what Francis does. Hell, Catholicism accepted evolution and some form of the big bang theory but that doesn't change him.-- Forerunner (talk) 23:38, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
The Pope is only infallible when speaking ex cathedra. I don't think that includes saying hi to Castro, alive or dead. AyzmoCheers 05:05, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
I wonder if Andy's inability to admit that he's ever made a mistake extends to all areas of his life. I can imagine him in court saying, "On the evening of May 24th, my client was in Chicago." His client saying that it was actually March 24th. Andy then insisting until he's blue in the face that, no, it was May 24th. He should know because he's always right and his client is a godless liberal for disagreeing with him. Spud (talk) 14:58, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

It looks like we're doubling down on the body double theory. They're using a guy the same age Fidel would have been had he not died a decade ago, who looks a lot like him. You can't have everything, though, so he's like a foot shorter. Nobody but Andy noticed that. It's most certainly NOT because Castro is in a chair while the Pope is standing. That's just what they want you to think. Whoover (talk) 17:26, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Just so you know he's seriously crazy, Andy also updated Fidel's time-of-death. Whoover (talk) 17:31, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

TAR[edit]

It has been six months since TAR has last graced the pages of Conservapedia. The time announced by User Conservative for his expected return has now passed. All of his spam farm remains in place to promote James Wesley Rawles and his wonderful books. Meanwhile, Messrs. Rawles and TAR have failed to make good on their promise of reciprocal promotion of CP. TAR had left the CP category structure in chaos, and nobody has step up to fix it. TAR has left numerous red links for articles that he had promised to write. Finally TAR left a lot of material promoting the notion that true conservatives should disengage from political life in the United States and immigrate to Idaho in order to focus upon the imminent collapse of the US. Implicit in the agreement to block all of TAR's critics was the promise that TAR would deliver the goods for CP; instead TAR has left CP a mess and has frozen out a number of productive editors in TAR's wake. A clean-up of the TAR residue is over due. Hclodge (talk) 11:58, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Why not make an account and clean up? Though polishing a turd can't hide the fact it is still a turd. You will not get any thanks for it though and Ken will still ban you on a whim.--Mercian (talk) 22:35, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Quantifying perfection[edit]

We haven't gotten a good quantifying essay in a while and Andy now delivers with the ambitious Quantifying Perfectionimg.However, he notes the difficulty and then settles with discussing something far more specific: Quantifying Perfection in Golf. Seems to me like he finds the idea of a high score being bad confusing and wants to change it. --Night Jaguar (talk) 04:54, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Classic Andy. Start out grandiose, with a universal insight of undeniable truth and power, then peter out to the mundane with a completely inappropriate example. Does Andy wish to treat the philosophical concept of perfection, comparing perfections like Cantor comparing infinities? Maybe that's what he means by quantifying perfection like height; some perfections are more perfect than others. Or maybe something can have a certain amount of perfection, like one can have a certain amount of height. Imagine that! A finite amount of perfection! "How infinite is that set, Georg?" "Oh, I'd say about an 8, maybe 8.5." Probably he wants to be able to say that Mrs. Schlafly's pancakes are perfect, and Mama Schlafly's pancakes are perfect too, but Mama Schlafly's pancakes are just a tiny bit perfecter.
Groping for a metaphor that might be understood by lesser men, and not knowing nothin' bout no math, Andy stretches for a sports metaphor. How about... golf? Golf has perfect games, right? They keep score in golf, don't they? Let's call a perfect golf game "100". Units are for menials, by the way. What is a perfect golf game, you ask? Uhh...you know, the best possible game. Where everything is perfect.
"So, is that like 18 holes-in-one? Or something better than that, like killing a terrorist with your follow-through each time?"
"Uh, the holes in one one, I guess."
"So each hole-in-one contributes 5.5555555.... to the total perfection score of 100?"
(fears a trap)"Maybe?"
"I guess I'm asking whether a hole-in-one on the rare par 6 contributes more than a hole-in-one on a par 3. How does the contribution scale?"
"All hole in ones are equal in the eyes of God"
"So a game with 17 holes-in-one and one double eagle on a par 5 gets a score of...what? Over 100? Less than 100?"
"Look, it's clear you lack openmindedness and deny that the best of the public are usually teenagers. Talk, talk, talk is not valued here."
Anyway, it reminds me of the damp squib of George Washington's letter to his nephew.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 12:57, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Oh, come on Andy! Aren't you going to quantify the perfection of the English language? The US of States? The man from Bethlehem that my Dad used to call "Jerenus"? Get your finger out and improve on perfection by further editing your essay. Spud (talk) 13:39, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Mapping an 18 to 100 is the easy part. The problem is that I'm sure he wants the perfection scale to run from 0 to 100. So an infinitely bad game must be zero and an 18 must be 100. Since the Bible invented infinity the math is best revealed by Jesus. I suspect a 72 is so far from perfection that He will score it a zero, or maybe a one. Whoover (talk) 16:46, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
It's really trivial to come up with some re-jiggering in golf scores. Here's a simple list of desiderata, followed by a sample solution.
(1) A score of 18 is mapped to 100.
(2) A score of par is mapped to 50.
(3) The function is decreasing on [18, infinity)
(4) The limit of the function as x goes to infinity is 0.
Truth be told, took me a bit longer than it should have to come up with the following solution.
f(x) = 100(p-18)/(p + 36 + x)
where p is par. Phiwum (talk) 17:41, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Hmmm. Ignoring anything about holes having different par, and thus weighting strokes differently depending on which hole they aim at, but using similar desiderata (on a scale of 0 to 1 instead of 0~100) I get something like
f(x) = \mathrm{e}^{-n(x-18)}
where
n = \frac{ln(0.5)}{18 - p}
which probably suffers from some degree of wrongness. Feel free to throw darts at it. Alec Sanderson (talk) 18:26, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
T.png
Looks nice. Has the advantage that it spreads the values out around par better than mine, which has already started to flatten. (The graphs to the right use p = 72.) Phiwum (talk) 19:01, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! Simple-looking graphs, though, are a distraction from any sincere attempt to define the central term here; a monotonic decreasing scalar function is a deeply flawed proxy for what we call "perfection." Speaking of spherical frictionless golfers in a vacuum,Wikipedia's W.svg there is a neat thing,Wikipedia's W.svg often presented in freshman aerodynamics classes when introducing the Reynolds number, about how scarification of a golf ball, or imperfections in its surface, made for longer drives. Ball manufacturers soon introduced controllable imperfections in the form of dimples, so new balls would no longer have the disadvantage of being "too perfect." Alec Sanderson (talk) 20:48, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Was also thinking of an exponentially decreasing function of total score too. Looking at how a perfect round is defined as an average of one under par, this would be closer to the how a perfect round is conventionally defined in golf:
  f(x) = 100e^{(-18 +(p-x))ln(2)/18}
Of course, you can theoretically get over 100 under this definition, but as the Wikipedia article notes: "While the lowest possible score is 18, the term 'perfect round' is used for a 54 as the lowest score generally accepted as being in the realm of possibility among professional golfers on a par 72 course". Perhaps this is a more practical definition.
Taking different par for each hole into account and dropping the condition that a 50 be on par, you can try something like:
 f(x) = \frac{100}{18e} \sum_{i=1}^{18} e^{p_i-x_i}
where x_i and p_i are the score and par for the ith hole, respectively. With a 18 hole-in-one's being defined as perfect it would be
 f(x) = 100  \frac{ \sum_{i=1}^{18} e^{p_i-x_i }}{ \sum_{i=1}^{18} e^{p_i-1}}.
Note that under this system scoring 1 under par on one hole and 1 over par on the next would NOT be equivalent to scoring on par for both (e^{1} + e^{-1} > 2, so it would be better). Whether this is justifiable or not, I'll let the reader decide. The base cannot be changed so they are equal since the only solution to a +1/a = 2 is a = 1, which would make the score trivial. Maybe ou can try to change the base so they are equal to a certain tolerance, but we've already put way more thought into this than Andy has. --Night Jaguar (talk) 21:19, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Well, aren't you both just so superior, with your ever-so-sophisticated exponential functions? Just go ahead and say it: only children reach for rational functions when they need a decreasing function with horizontal asymptote.
Snotty pigs. Rationals were good enough for my pappy, and they're good enough for me. Phiwum (talk) 00:03, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
Oinkity as charged, m'lord. The sound you didn't hear was a loogie the size of a quahog, being snurfled back towards my bronchial passage. We could just as easily go with a linear function, if you were willing to accept negative values for perfection. Duffers gotta duff, you know. Speaking of asymptotes, I always look askance at a graph which crops out the part near the horizontal axis. Maybe RW needs an article on deception by graphic presentation, with references to my guru, Edward Tufte,Wikipedia's W.svg out the wazoo. Have a nice view this evening... Alec Sanderson (talk) 00:20, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
I'm not a regular gnuplot user. I haven't needed to graph functions in decades. Not my kind of mathematics, you Oinky McOinker, you! (And negative values for perfection? Even I am not that lazy.) Phiwum (talk) 02:43, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
OK, Pantsy Bunchington, whatever you say. I don't expect you to splain why a perfection score can't take negative values. Alec Sanderson (talk) 13:38, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
Because it can't. It just can't. Duh. (To be honest, I'm a little shocked that Andy hasn't ranted about the unreality of negative numbers. Maybe it's because he's already claimed Biblical foreknowledge involving negative numbers, but he's happy to claim that fishes and loaves is foreknowledge of Banach-Tarski after claiming that Banach-Tarski is absurd.) Phiwum (talk) 20:43, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Erm, what? Seems to me like perfection is a pretty binary quality. Something is perfect or it isn't. Seems like attaching a quantity to perfection is a contradiction in terms. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:52, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

How, then, would you account for an idiom such as "almost perfect"? My favorite definition of "perfect" is still the one used by obstetricians attending a birth. "This is a perfect baby" means "it has the right number of fingers and toes (and a few other things.)" Andy's definition, which I have no intention of researching, probably has more to do with being in accord with God's wishes, e.g. a perfect football game being one where God helps Andy's favored team win. Alec Sanderson (talk) 21:02, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
After this tangent, I promise to go quiet for a while: Another sporting event of Scottish origin is caber-tossing.Wikipedia's W.svg Competitors are not judged by God, but by the appointed human referees; not on distance, but rather on how well the caber turns after hitting the ground, and whether it lands pointing away from the tosser. Alec Sanderson (talk) 21:25, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Phrases like "almost perfect" would be in the same category as mathematical phrases like "almost always" which have unintuitive but completely rational explanations corresponding to infinities. For example, almost all integers are composite. The primes are infinite, but in proportion to the similarly infinite set of all integers they're dwarfed into insignificance by the composites. So it would be "almost perfect" if something was clearly not perfect in principle, and yet the measured difference from perfection was zero. Suppose you're cleaning the hypothetical infinite hotel, you mistakenly don't do rooms on prime numbered floors, but all the others are spotless. This makes your cleaning "almost perfect" even though infinite hotel guests are left with yesterday's towels and an unmade bed and will call the front desk to complain. Tialaramex (talk) 10:55, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
I'm truly impressed by the mathematical work that's gone into these last couple of posts, but it seems that there are a couple of things that should be addressed before a function is defined for perfection in golf games. IMHO we should take Andy's historical statements into consideration, like Supreme Court justices parsing the meaning of ambiguous clauses in the Constitution. Clearly Andy himself favors this approach. So, please consider the following: what is the lowest score that Andy has ever assigned to a homework set from one of his online/inperson classes? Probably something in the 80s or 90s, right? I see no reason that Andy would ever score something lower than, say, 80 out of 100 if one of his students was doing it. So rather than 0 representing an infinitely bad golf round, it should be something like 80 or 85. Second, the scoring function clearly must be geometric rather than linear, because all good conservative functions (but I repeat myself) are geometric. I would expect that the resulting scoring would give just about everyone a score between 97 and 100, with it taking colossal clusterfuckery to approach that infinitely bad game of score 80. Just like Andy's usual grading, a really flat scoring curve near 100 over all likely real-world golf scores should be seen as a feature, not as a bug.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 00:02, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Golf perfection is not subject to grade inflation. Only Jesus could achieve that 18, but Kim Jong-Il had 11 holes-in-one in his first game. The Golf Perfection Algorithm has to insure a significant spread between these two cases. Very, very good (home-schooled students and Kim) is not Perfect (Jesus). I would suspect ln(2) should be ln(2.0000001) though. Whoover (talk) 00:39, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Only Jesus gets the 100, as He should. Grade inflation is only practiced by liberals, unlike at Conservapedia where zero editors have that mental illness. Good call on the 2.0000001, but remember that natural logs rely on the assumption that there is a unique limit to (1+1/n)^n as n goes to infinity that will yield consistent results.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 13:18, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Hmmm, Andy doesn't like defining 18 hole-in-one's as perfect because it's impossible, so then he asks what would be a perfect game of football? For him, I guess it would be 11 Tim Tebow's vs. a team of evil libruls (Obama, Hillary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Hitler, etc.). The liberals lose 200-0, see the errors of their ways and repent. The Tebow's then invite Andy to the lockeroom for the after-party... for everyone's sake, I'll stop there. --Night Jaguar (talk) 04:36, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

A perfect game of football would surely be where the perfect team scores a touchdown (or two point conversion) on every play. Something like: receive kickoff, run back for touchdown. Go for two-point conversion, turnover ball, recover ball and run in for touchdown (not 100% positive about that; maybe just counts as two points). Kickoff to defense; force turnover and run in for touchdown. Rinse, repeat. The actual score doesn't matter, just that every play is a scoring play for the 'perfect' team. --Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 02:16, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
Someone should add "something unattainable would be a poor definition of perfection" to Liberal Denial. It's actually so mind-numbingly stupid it deserves an article. Whoover (talk) 22:22, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
I kinda wonder what definition of "impossible" he has in mind. What makes 18 holes in one not merely extraordinarily unlikely but literally impossible? Phiwum (talk) 00:45, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
I would think that it is "almost surely" impossible. Technically possible but the chances of it happening are zero.--Mercian (talk) 04:00, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Andy's stellar display of logical proof[edit]

  1. Logic is unique, such that contrary systems of logic are impossible.
  2. The existence of God is logical.
  3. Therefore God exists.

I have nothing to add. From Logic-based proof of God.Phiwum (talk) 14:36, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

"Belief has nothing to do with [the existence of God]." I grew up in the Assemblies of God, and even in that blinkered bunch of almost-snake-handlers, it was believed that true faith required doubt, insight, and some internal struggle. Exhibit number - what, 25, 40? - of how Andrew Schlafly is utterly without both faith, and the ability to recognize how empty his personal philosophy is. Semipenultimate (talk) 16:44, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
Isn't proposition (1) incorrect because it implies that a system of logic is internally consistent, contrary to Goedel's First Incompleteness Theorem? Andy, please think about this then re-read (or read, in your case) Hebrews 11 (about faith). Cardinal Fang (talk) 22:58, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
1. Nope. Fuzzy logic, paraconsistent logic, Intuitionistic logic, etc.
2. What does this mean? That the existence of God is self-consistent? Under certain definitions of "God" this is not the case.
3. Conclusion does not follow from premises. Funny enough, your argument isn't logical.
As mentioned below, Andy also created the the article Logic anarchyimg, which sounds like a bad name for encyclopedia entry, but a half decent one for a band. --Night Jaguar (talk) 23:10, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Even better: Andy's new insight that because mathematical proof by contradiction is "logic anarchy," atheism demands censorship. On cue, AugustO and SamHB sputter and VargasMilan shouts, "right on!" Whoover (talk) 23:09, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Cardinal Fang, I don't think Goedel has anything to do with it. As written, premise (1) is just nonsense. As Jaguar says, there are many examples of logics that are different from classical logic. (Andy also doesn't have a clue how the phrase "such that" works, grammatically speaking.) Phiwum (talk) 03:05, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

"Objective truth proof

  1. Objective truth exists.
  2. The existence of objective truth depends on the existence of an objective observer.
  3. In the absence of an objective observer, the concept of objective truth would fail for lack of falsifiability.
  4. The only possible objective observer for all of objective truth is God.
  5. Therefore God exists."

Shooting this down isn't hard so it's left as an exercise for the reader, but I will say that 3 is completely superfluous to his argument (as well being nonsense).

His "proofs" kinda remind me of Cargo cult. During World War II some indigenous peoples in the Pacific saw American planes land on their islands with cargo. After the Americans left, they wanted the planes with cargo to return, so they would make "antennas" out of bamboo, "headphones" out of coconuts, "runways", etc. and mimic what they had seen the Americans doing. Superficially it looks the same, but they lacked a fundamental understanding of what they were trying to do. The same thing can be said about Andy and logic. --Night Jaguar (talk) 04:32, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

To give more credit to Andy than he's due, premise (3) would make sense if it came before premise (2) and was intended to entail premise (2). (Of course, premise (3) would still be nonsense, but at least it would be clear why it's there.) Phiwum (talk) 16:09, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
Mind you, if (3) came before (2), that would be logic anarchy! Phiwum (talk) 16:15, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
These "proofs" are becoming more incoherentimg:
Probability-based proof
  1. The positive implies the negative, as in the existence of "+1" implying the existence of "-1".
  2. The existence of probability therefore implies the existence of the negative of probability, or certitude.
  3. Certitude can exist only if God exists."
