AA President[edit]

Oops, we already tried that. I mean the other kind of AA. Isn't it special that teh assfly (see WIGO:"Ed Poor asks a VERY uncomfortable question") finally has vindication for one of his made-up terms - ie, other people also made it up shortly thereafter. Other bigoted, small-minded jerks, at least. Can someone tell his mommy he made good? Can he finally get that WP entry we all so would drool over? Last comment... isn't it amazing that the See Also, "Nepotism President" is still there, and the article still exists!!! Balance on CP! Whodathunkit? humanUser talk:Human 20:51, 23 April 2008 (EDT)

Didn't the article get moved to the Essay pseudo-namespace, though? *too lazy to double-check* Although yes, it is quite amazing that it wasn't deleted instantly. --Sid 21:45, 23 April 2008 (EDT)

See, I didn't read that exchange as trying to give Andy credit--I read it as the opposite; Ed and Kara trying to give Andy some [plausible deniability on one of his nuttier notions. "Golly, where did this crazy statement come from?" "Looks like it came from this Farah fellow, we'd better give him credit before we get in trouble." "No, no--it was a liberal Democrat who said it...Yeah, that's the ticket...". But Andy's too thick, and messed up the plan, so we'll, uh, archive it.--WJThomas 22:07, 23 April 2008 (EDT)

Anybody want to do some homework for Aschlafly?[edit]

I call the power of dissent, but we should all submit some. It's only like 6 double spaced pages.-caius (soldier) 21:21, 23 April 2008 (EDT)

The "future of movies" one is actually a fairly interesting topic, though not for the reason Andy thinks of ("CP got so many pageviews"). I shall write an essay and submit it on-... oops, I forgot: I'm banned there. Oh well, more time for actually important things! :D --Sid 21:43, 23 April 2008 (EDT)
You know, I usually read Conservapedia with disinterested humor... But as a teacher (sort of) whenver I read these things, I truly feel sad. Not only are his asssignments complete indoctrination and grabage. But they're very poorly written. It's like being taught by a monkey (with a high, nasally voice) it's great if you plan on being a monkey, but not for the real world. SirChuckBCall the FBI 23:37, 23 April 2008 (EDT)
I think it's more of a mid-range nasal-y voice, but I completely agree with the rest of the sentiment. These are the kind of assignments they warned us about, sure to generate parent e-mails (in a public school setting, at least), and not just about the absurd indoctrination parts. He thinks these are SAT worthy? Now, granted, I didn't take the SATs when they had a writing portion, so perhaps they are only basing the point scale on mechanics or verbosity, but I doubt it. In this light, it's not so much that the prompts are at fault (sadly, I've seen worse, academically), but any result that shows insight and cohesive thought (presumably what the SATs are looking for) surely won't fly with Schlafly (the immediate grader). The poor kids are damned if they do and damned if they don't. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 01:46, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
"11. If teachers and students were armed with guns, then there would be fewer beatings, intimidation by gangs, and massacres in public school." yup' - there'd probably be nobody left to do them. (</snark>) SusanG  ContribsTalk 01:55, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
I wonder if Andy hands out guns at his homeschool classes. --Shagie 02:02, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
Usually I don't approve of mockery, but that really did make me laugh :) SHahB 02:23, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
As much as I was making a funny there, the idea of arming youths in school is a really bad one. It has been shown that the brain doesn't mature to the point of being able to make good judgment decisions until about 20 or so.[1] Combine that with either pre-teens who think everything is a toy or hormone influenced teenagers trying to resolve just who was flirting with someone's girlfriend, and you could have really bad situations in normal day to day activities. It is just a bad idea to consider arming children. I grew up in the country - in November about a quarter of the class would be on vacation for deer hunting season. Its not that guns are a bad thing themselves but putting them in the hands of a child and saying "shoot if someone points one of these at you" is... words escape me for how boneheaded this is. One would hope that conflict resolution skills other than using force would be a better approach - so people don't think the only way to resolve a problem is with violence or deadly force. --Shagie 14:50, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
I liked assignment n. 3 (or 4?) 2. Should a real Conservative pray with reason or emotion? After a day full of harassment by evil Liberals, Atheists, Rationalwikians, Affirmative Actionists, I'm sure a real Conservative would be in tears while deeply emotioned asking God for a good punishment of the aforementioned. On the other hand, a real Conservative should always act with cold reason, taking an example from the Masters of reason and reasonable conduct: the Schlaflies and their cohort (Karajou, Conservative, et co.). (Editor at) CP:no intelligence allowed 03:26, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
WTF does this: "9. The past is like the future: it depends entirely on what you make of it." mean? Substitute any two words for 'past' and 'future' - it makes as much sense. "9. The table is like the orange: it depends entirely on what you make of it." SusanG  ContribsTalk 08:23, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
With it depends entirely on what you make of it the Assfly means reality is entirely what you make of it. Don't let 'liberal' facts get in the way of the alternative conservaverse. Auld Nick 08:40, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
Yes, it's eerily similar to "Those who control the present control the past. Those who control the past control the future." Of course, the assumed sincerity is rather troubling. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 10:17, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
And those who control the spice control the universe. No, wait . . . -Master Bra'tacKree! 15:58, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

Persons Who Weren't Homeskooled[edit]

According to one evil, illthinking, vile, doubtless misinformed person Mr Schlafly's kids weren't (aren't being?) home skooled. (oh & kajagoogo can't spell, but he can revert (see next diff) Oh & he can with certainty identify AmesG, under whatever guise he appears. SusanG  ContribsTalk

Is that really true? I mean, it would be freaking hilarious... but how do we know? SirChuckBCall the FBI 12:40, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
That guy actually was me! I think it's very important to note that Schlafly's kids weren't homeschooled, and it's a hard question that he has to answer. If he was really committed to the cause...
Anyways, yes, his kids weren't homeschooled. One of my friends went to the Pingry Schools, and sent me a pdf of this newsletter that my friend appeared in (He'd done something cool), and there was a note about Schlafly's kids being there in the same newsletter. O! Fortuna!-caius (soldier) 12:47, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
I don't know that Andy feels that all kids should be homeschooled, just that no kid should have to go to those liberal atheistic public schools that are nothing more than a get-rich scheme for the teachers union. Sending one's offspring to a fancy-pants private school is, presumably, acceptable.--WJThomas 13:19, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
Is it possible that he endorses homeschooling because he couldn't cut it as a real teacher? Lardashe
If homeschooling is important to keep away the atheists and the lib'ruls, then I don't see how Pingry would be any better. He'll still be learning evolution & world history that goes beyond 6,000 years there, it's not a religious school, is it??-caius (soldier) 13:33, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
No doubt such things are just convenient excuses. Likely he wants to get rid of public schools for the traditional rich white guy reasons--the ignorant unwashed are best kept that way. If they start learning and stuff, they might get all uppity, wanting "special rights" like a decent wage, and safe neighborhoods. All that stuff cuts into the bottom line. Of course, that's a hard argument to win elections with, so instead you complain about liberal conspiracies and whatnot.--WJThomas 13:47, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

I'm still waiting for somebody to ask him if he actually owns a gun. *hint* NightFlareSpeak, mortal 15:47, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

I wonder if he would object to one of his homeschool students bringing a gun to class. Or if his students would object to him bringing one to his lessons. (Assuming he does actual classes in person) Lardashe

This is Andy's daughter speaking. I'd just like to correct you all to say that yes, I have been homeschooled all of my life except for the third and fourth grades, and my brother was homeschooled for a couple grades when he was younger. Just to clear that up.Phy

Hypocrisy[edit]

Today's front page of Conservapedia says, "Liberal hate speech on the rise.” Now you never get Conservative hate speech anywhere? Now you never get hate speech on Conservapedia? Proxima Centauri 05:29, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

Keep in mind that "hate speech" is defined here as "speech Andy doesn't like", which can include mild criticism of Conservatives. Therefore, Conservatives are unable by definition to produce it. --Kels 06:32, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
Pity we haven't smilies to say "Silly". Proxima Centauri 06:36, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

Here, I shall provide: ridiculous, nonsensical, and childish. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 12:59, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
"Smilies." Not "similes." PFoster 13:44, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

Actually, those are synonyms. Similes are comparisons using "like" or "as." Please excuse my outburst of Englishteacheritis. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 14:21, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

Andy on the BBC[edit]

Don't know why I didn't go looking for this before - Andy interviewed on BBC radio (along with a WP admin) back in the early days of CP. Without it I never would have heard of his wonderful blog. (Apologies to those who've heard it before.) Matt 00:18, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

ET! We need you![edit]

I find this more than a little lol-worthy. I have no idea what TerryH is trying to say in the previous paragraph, but PJR is with him... I see this as a new purpose for the SETI project - to destroy the faith of all the fundie bible-literalists! Bondurant 05:43, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

That article and its associated talk page is an absolute classic. Ajkgordon 06:35, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
...talk pages like that make it harder and harder to believe that TerryH is not a parodist. *still giggling* --Sid 07:16, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
Yeah...I like how Terry takes pains to assert that, in the unlikely event that alien beings did visit Earth, they would undoubtedly be evil (his proof: aliens in Hollywood movies are always ugly). Mostly the whole thing is part of the ol' "cover all your bases" routine: Alien life would invalidate the Bible, BUT, if we did find life elsewhere it would either be from Earth originally (via microbes ejected from the Great Flood) or demons in disguise, so the Bible would still be true.--WJThomas 07:26, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
In the essay, he hopes that should aliens arrive, that they would be a Christopher Columbus rather than various other analogs. This shows just how uneducated Terry is. Columbus and his merry men didn't treat the natives they found very well. --Edgerunner76Tah-daaaaaaah! 09:35, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
Non-human entities descending from the sky - definitely evil extra-terrestials, or is that evil angels? What effing cloud-cuckoo land do these guys live in?  Lily Ta, wack! 09:50, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
This was an interesting add by Smeg Ed. Think he's trying to tell us something? Psygremlin 10:06, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
I think he's trying to tell us that he can do without his medication. Bondurant 10:12, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
I thought he was just showing us how clever he is and how he can deftly win an argument with a clever turn of his fine mind. Yeah, either that or he's been smoking cigars with the plastic wrapping still on. RedDog 10:19, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
It is also nice to know that if alien's land in Terry's backyard he is prepared to shoot them with his weapon of gun because they are obviously demons ( well, they're ugly. Demons are ugly and have a noted affinity for flying saucers . . er . . "scoutcraft". . . ). One question though . . Is Terry 9?
Ooh... somebody calls him on Columbus and gets this reply "...your unfounded allegations against CC..." Has Terry got a hard on for explorers now? Or just been reading too much of Assfly's "history" books? [2]Psygremlin 10:59, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

I think we've have our new closet boy... that explain why we haven't heard from Kenservative for a while. Really though... who goes out of their way to say big burly heavily-muscled male human beings? Anybody ever seen a Men at Work sign and thought just maybe it's a bunch of antelope putting up a building? and one more thing... If you saw a sign that said People at Work...would you just assume their announcing a shopping district? Ed has officailly lapped himself. SirChuckBCall the FBI 13:27, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
Usually that sign means "heavily-tanned people leaning on shovels drinking coffee". humanUser talk:Human 14:00, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
It is worth bearing in mind that -as a Moonie - WeirdEd may anyway have a strange palate for matters of the flesh, so to speak. If I recall correctly, Rev Moon chooses the marital partners for one another in a vast lottery system, so you have no say in who you end up with. Then, following the marrieage, Rev Moon instructs them to beat one another on the buttocks with what he calls the "indemnity stick" ... and then they are forbidden to have sex for three years. Then, when they are allowed to finally consummate the wedding, they have to follow a complicated set of instructions about pre-coital ablutions and mid-coital positioning. For two nights, the women are on top and taking control, and for the third in an attempt to overturn the fatal dominion of Eve the husband reasserts control. A large photograph of Rev Moon has to be positioned so that it can oversee the event. After making bacon, the participants then have to wipe themselves with the Holy Handkerchief, an unusual family heirloom that is to be preserved, unlaundered, for the rest of their lives. Now there's some images that will haunt your weekend :D Fox 14:17, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
For two nights, the women are on top and taking control, and for the third...the husband reasserts control. Hey, sounds good to me--Damn good...--WJThomas 18:57, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
The couple should continue the act of love until ejaculation, but if it is difficult to reach ejaculation, the act may be stopped at that point. However, insertion itself must be accomplished. If insertion is not possible because the husband does not have an erection, the wife must take her husband's sexual organ in her hand and guide it into her sexual part in order to successfully do the ceremony. Obviously the Moonie men are prone to finding it less emjoyable than you might expect. Still, as they are brainwashed into thinking of women as objects, and dirty, sinful ones at that - Moon himself says that the first "criminal part" of the human body is "those two thin lips", and he's looking below the waist as he says it - I guess it is a distasteful thing that good Moonie men have to sully themselves like that. Fox 19:12, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
Thanks for ruining my day, Fox ;) By the way, PoD also forgets to mention that in come contexts (He is writing that next, right? Can someone peek at his conservapedia:writing plan?) "men at work" is a pop band from Australia... humanUser talk:Human 14:23, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

More fresh Holy Handkerchief lunacy for the people:

Holy Handkerchief Significance
The internal significance and use of the Holy Handkerchief is explained in the verbal instructions given for the Three Day Ceremony. They are priceless and should be treated as such. A word about their care will be mentioned here.
When to Receive
Holy Handkerchiefs are given only to members who have gone through both the Engagement and Holy Wine Ceremonies and are handed out individually at that time.
Preservation
NEVER wash a Holy Handkerchief. The Holy Handkerchief has been sprinkled with Holy Wine and may be wet or slightly damp when received. It is important to dry it out BEFORE putting it away. Be sure that it is stored in some type of material (plastic bag, for example). Do NOT put it away without covering it. Do not write your name on the Holy Handkerchief itself; it is important that your name is clearly marked on the outside of-the package. (Place it in an envelope with your name on the outside, if desired.) Each person has the responsibility to store his or her Holy Handkerchief in a safe place. If fiancés or spouses store their Holy Handkerchiefs in the same place, the handkerchiefs must NOT be mixed up. Clearly mark both packages with the individual names. Do NOT divide your Holy Handkerchief. (See below.)
If A Holy Handkerchief Is Lost
One cannot have the Three Day Ceremony without his or her own Holy Handkerchief. Dividing a Holy Handkerchief is not acceptable, nor is using only one. However, loss of a Holy Handkerchief is taken seriously and receiving a second one requires a condition of indemnity (tang gam). Consult a major or national leader, regional IW, national Blessed Family Department, or the International Blessed Family Department for direction.
In the Case of Reblessing or Rematching
The Holy Handkerchief originally received is still valid and should be used. Holy Handkerchiefs of members who have left the Unification Church should be sent to the International Blessed Family Department. [3] --Robledo 15:21, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

I feel unusual now. DogP 15:52, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

Holy Handkerchiefs of members who have left the Unification Church should be sent to the International Blessed Family Department. where they are very careful how they open envelopes. . . . — Unsigned, by: 204.248.28.194 / talk / contribs
Imagine the fun that could be had (before, during and after) of getting a few hundred handkerchiefs, making use of them and sending them to the IBFD. The only problem would be the identification back if they wanted to go for harassment... that genetic material thing. --Shagie 16:17, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

At least it isn't "Holy Bedsheets" that aren't to be washed. --Shagie 16:23, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
Wait. That thing is actually called "Holy Handkerchief"? Oh my... this gives this an even more surreal twist. I should feel bad for mocking Ed's apparent religious belief system, and I sorta do, but seriously... Holy Handkerchief? --Sid 17:57, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
It is indeed, Sidney. Here in the more refined south, one does not refer to items of a lady's toilet, however I understand that north of Watford Gap it is commonly known as a "tea towell", or, in the further northern reaches of these fair isles, "curtain". Fox 19:31, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
Holy Handkerchief, Batman!!! What do these stains mean?! Robin 22:02, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
"Curtain". LOL@Fox! Ajkgordon 04:54, 26 April 2008 (EDT)
OMG! This might just be the funniest thread I've ever come across on the 'net. Thank you to all who contributed. Now... about that mouthful of coffee I just spat over my keyboard... Psygremlin 06:31, 26 April 2008 (EDT)
How do we know Ed is a moonie again?
Because he stated so on his WP (and iirc at one point his CP) userpage. Fox 15:15, 26 April 2008 (EDT)
He also posted a link on his WP user page to a picture of him at a Moonie religious service. 16:19, 26 April 2008 (EDT)

Whatever happened to Andy's comments to HelpJazz about how "I'd love to be able to give you new rights any day now. I really hope I can! Any second now..." I guess no so much, eh? DickTurpis 14:09, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

Makes me wonder what is "preventing" Andy from doing what he'd "love to be able to" do... did Fuzzy Kettle break Andy's 'crat buttons when he briefly hijacked the Project Leader's computer to sysop and desysop himself? humanUser talk:Human 14:21, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

Checklist for Insanity[edit]

OK, lets run down the list of insane Andy claims for a second:

  • His claim that any Conservative he disagrees with is actually a Liberal reason being he says so
  • Thinking he's actually an educator
  • Thinking he's actually a decent educator
  • Claiming he can rewrite the bible and make it better by removing the Liberal Bias
  • Claims he encourages free speech, but blocks any editor he disagrees with
  • Refers to himself as a prophet


I think he may be just a little bit crazy. I once offered Kenservative and ED free transport to Denver and free Pysch care. I now extend the offer to you, Mr. Schafly, please come get some help.... you can ski? If it's not liberally biased to do so. SirChuckBCall the FBI 15:28, 26 April 2008 (EDT)


His claim that any Conservative he disagrees with is actually a Liberal reason being he says so -> Not really a sign of insanity as much as a lack of political smarts.
Thinking he's actually an educator
Thinking he's actually a decent educator -> Insanity? Of just over-inflated view of himself? I fancy myself a third-baseman when I play with my Wednesday night softball team. Others may disagree.
*Claiming he can rewrite the bible and make it better by removing the Liberal Bias-> This, admittedly, is worrisome.
*Claims he encourages free speech, but blocks any editor he disagrees with-> Being a power-abusing a-hole is not a sign of insanity. Just ask my boss (kidding, boss!).
*Refers to himself as a prophet-> again, worrisome. My conclusion - the patient may exhibit a few traits that bring his mental health into question - but hey, it's the 21st century and we're all a little crazy, right - but for the most part is just a loudmouth, unthinking, and power-hungry man who is not mentally ill, but is in fact completely responsible for his own behaviour. PFoster 15:40, 26 April 2008 (EDT)
I have to disagree with you on several points. The specific condition I'm looking at is Delusional Paranoia, very dangerous. As to your counterpoints, I have some problems with them.
1. "Not really a sign of insanity as much as a lack of political smarts." It's not the issue of his political problems, it's the fact that he is so delusional and paranoid, he thinks that only he can spot the true Conservatives and anyone who claims differently is a Liberal out to get him.
2. and 3. "Insanity? Of just over-inflated view of himself? I fancy myself a third-baseman when I play with my Wednesday night softball team. Others may disagree. I would agree with you on this point, but the difference is, you don't run a website wherein you claim to be one of the finest Athletic specimans in North America. You also don't don't post tips and drills for young kids to do if they want to be third basemen, and you don't demand that anyone who plays the position differently or thinks there's someone out there that can play better run your drills and come back with an open mind.
4. This, admittedly, is worrisome." I thank you for your concession :)
5.Being a power-abusing a-hole is not a sign of insanity. Just ask my boss (kidding, boss!)." Again, the issue hinges on what he really believes compared to what he says. I think he really does think that he truly Embodies the principle of free speech and dissent. That is why I fear for the Delusions
6.again, worrisome." Again, thank you
My conclusion - the patient may exhibit a few traits that bring his mental health into question - but hey, it's the 21st century and we're all a little crazy, right - but for the most part is just a loudmouth, unthinking, and power-hungry man who is not mentally ill, but is in fact completely responsible for his own behaviour. PFoster 15:40, 26 April 2008 (EDT)
This is where our two feelings really shift directions. I would argue that while we all may be a "little crazy," as my opponent put it, none of us actively compile shrines to our infallibility. Andy Schlafly displays classic signs of a Delusion Paranoid. Some of which indicate a rather high degree of seriousness. I recognize the counterpoints of my opponent and thank him for his debate, but I still fall on the side of my original conclusion. Thank you for the time.

Andy vs. Physics[edit]

It never ceases to amaze me that on the one hand these YEC/ID nutters rant and rave about how specific and finely-tuned the universe is to allow us to live on such a lovely planet, and yet at the same time are so cavalier about how those same laws of physics could just willy-nilly have shifted all over the damn place at some indeterminate point in the past.

Alexa[edit]

I don't really understand Alexa or what on earth Andy is on about on his main page (no change there though). has CP's Alexa rating improved? What happened to the 'Ides of March' rubbish? Is it just that there is always something in the near future that is supposed to improve CP but never turns up? Or objectively are his ratings really improving? RedDog 10:17, 27 April 2008 (EDT)

These links may be relevant:
http://www.searchenginejournal.com/manipulating-alexa-traffic-rankings/3044/
http://www.alexa.com/site/company/announcement
If you actually check out Alexa's page, you'll see that the traffic rank is the only thing that has "improved"- their daily reach and page views have remained pretty much the same.Shangrala 10:36, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
Ken's been trying to game Google for a while now, so it makes sense he'd try to pervert the Alexa results to make his articles (not CP as a whole, mind you) look better. In reality, they're not even coming close to the last blogburst they got when *coughsomeonecough* inflated the pageviews on their homosexuality articles. --Kels 10:39, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
Agreed. Gamed or manipulated statistics do not make popular articles, and perceived popularity isn't an indicator of quality.
I might do another "Popularity of [article]" check (as I did with the Evo article before RW even existed) to see just who actually refers to CP (assuming that anybody outside of RW and CP still remembers CP). --Sid 11:49, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
Well, let's do it then. First ten results I get on Google that aren't CP or RW:
  • Blog calling it scary humour
  • Ken starting a discussion on an anti-evo forum (as Peter Moore)
  • Stale link on an atheist board, CP does not appear on actual page
  • Another "scary humour" post
  • Blog critical of CP
  • Simple, staring disbelief at CP's insanity
  • Post describing the article, and CP as a whole, as stupid
  • Blog that periodically refers to CP, describes it as as "pitifully inaccurate"
  • Blog laughing over Homosexuality ranking
  • Blog that laughs at CP, does not actually link to or mention Atheism page, although the word "atheism" appears in a comment
So out of all that, on the first two or three pages of Google (all anyone looks at anyway), you have one positive comment, posted by Ken himself. Not exactly an outpouring of support. And by the way, how many good editors have they gained as a result of all this shameless self-promotion? Isn't that part of the point? --Kels 12:09, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
Excellent replies. Thank you guys. So it seems like the stats are manipulated. Isn't this a bit like sending yourself lots of birthday cards to impress the postman. There's a name for people who do things like that. Sad-arse or Andy. Take your pick. RedDog 13:09, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
A few more details about the Google results, though Kels summed things up nicely: The only ones praising CP's Atheism article are Ken and maybe one or two people on some anti-evolution board. --Sid 13:21, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
It looks from a few quick google searches that he's been running around under a variety of aliases to different message boards, blogs, and so forth, doing drive-by postings with his links in them to artificially inflate the rankings. Since most of the responses range between annoyance and offense, I don't really see how he's helping his cause.
The official reasoning is that it doesn't matter how the ranking is boosted, it means they'll be high in rankings and people will go to them instead of anywhere else, and people will be convinced. Which is delusional hogwash, of course, given the slop they've actually got on the page. --Kels 13:30, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
He has (one of his RW Talk Page archives should have a nice list of one phase, actually...), and yes, it's simply trolling to boost the ranking. Heck, he basically stopped coming here because we have "nofollow" tags and because he doesn't want to get RW involved in CP-related searches. --Sid 13:34, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
Re: Alexa, it's odd how right now CP's rank and reach are both climbing, and yet their pageviews are dropping. Re: Google, it's a pity we aren't a higher ranked return on a search for "conservapedia". Surely we should be, we probably use the word more on our site than even CP itself! humanUser talk:Human 15:22, 27 April 2008 (EDT)

Its not only about what you have on your site, but what sites link to you. Thats the key thing (and why before the nofollow thing for google, link spamming on blogs was so common). The more sites that link to you, the better your rank. This is what Kenny keeps going on about. Though the part that Kenny forgets is that its about the quality of the site that links to you too. Saying the same thing over and over again google tends to not score that high (think of meta tag spamming that went on for awhile too - again, before google started filtering that out). --Shagie 15:27, 27 April 2008 (EDT) Something to try doing.... fetch the popular pages page every 15 minutes for a week. See what pages are hit and how often they are hit. --Shagie 15:28, 27 April 2008 (EDT)

I still don't understand why it is so important to CP to have a high-ranked article about Atheism anyway - I mean, I would - while I was regularly editing there - much rather CP was known for quality articles about conservative philosophies, or scholarly articles on Biblical subjects. Or educational articles on numerous other subjects. Regulars there spend all their time writing about Liebruls, commies, gays and atheists and produce almost squat about subjects conservative Christians actually want to read about and be informed about. I'm not particularly knocking Ken or PJR or most of them there - I only single out TK and WeirdEd, and that's because they really deserve it - but I just can't understand why they don't actually pull their thumbs out of their butts and try to cater to the market they initially identified as their target. No atheist is going to read the Atheism article and head straight to church for forgiveness; no homosexual is going to read CP and suddenly become straight. The whole Projekt has become one of alienation. Fox 10:45, 28 April 2008 (EDT)
It's not important to CP but rather the author of the Atheism article, who happens to "share" his ratings fantasies with the rest of the world via cp's mainpage. And I think I found out his seekrit, go to http://googlerankings.com and search for keyword theory of evolution (no quotes) and domain conservapedia.com . Such a "search" brings up CP ranked #3 on MSN.
But to the larger point of CP being a "negative" entity, (and here I use "negative" as in, "I will define myself NOT by what I AM but by what I am NOT"): as has been said elsewhere by many, CP isn't so much an encyclopedia as it is a blog of Schlafly's beliefs. The only conservatives worth mentioning (there) are those in power, great conservatives of the past are given short shrift: giants like cp:Barry Goldwater and cp:William F. Buckley get respectful but woefully short articles, given that under their watch the modern conservative (US) movement came into being and became a force to be reckoned with. The unwavering support for GWB's disastrous policies: interventionist war (without end), don't tax-and-spend (in essence increasing the taxes of today's children and their children), Medicare part D (this really deserves it's own article).
What Jack Chick is to the Bible is what Conservapedia is to conservative thought. CЯacke® 14:18, 28 April 2008 (EDT)

PJR maybe not so reasonable?[edit]

I'm sort of interested to see PJR lately, arguing on the one hand that WP should simply report the facts on Expelled and not concern themselves with whether its points are correct or not, but does the exact same thing in the "Evolutionism" article, even going so far as to lay a trick question about Stonehenge as part of his "proof" that weak atheists are WRONG WRONG WRONG and thus don't belong in the article. He might not be the sort to ban people for disagreeing with him, but he's as pigheaded and loopy as the rest of them. --Kels 11:18, 27 April 2008 (EDT)

Actually, he seems to have been persuaded in the end, or did I misunderstand? (I mean not that the idea is right, but what the idea means.) --Bobbing up 12:33, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
Hmm, you may be right. I was looking at the "you fell for my trick question on Stonehenge, therefore screw you, I'm reverting" bit. Seemed awful cheap to me. --Kels 13:07, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
I'm not entirely sure he does get the idea of what a weak atheist actually is. If he actually does, then he's perpetuating something he knows to be wrong by reverting the article - it seems to indicate that a 'weak atheist' does science based on a 'world view', not the evidence, despite the fact that the whole difference between 'weak' and 'strong' atheism is that 'weak atheism' follows the evidence and 'strong atheism' just happens to claim what this evidence appears to indicate. (Incidentally, from what I've seen at Conservapedia, one of their major failings is that they think all atheists are 'strong atheists', whereas, in my experience, quite a number are, in fact, 'weak atheists', as they are atheists due to the evidence, or, more properly, lack of it, rather than because they have a strong affirmative belief in the non-existence of God.)
As for his 'trick question', the only problem with it is that it's flawed. Yes, we do know that Stonehenge was built by man in reality, but, in his hypothetical situation, the one and only bit of evidence we would have that man even existed in Britain at all in that period is the simple fact Stonehenge exists. This would only be enough to propose the hypothesis that man built Stonehenge, but, in the complete absence of further evidence, no-one would be able to prove this hypothesis scientifically.

Just thought of something else - going by his argument, in reality (not his hypothetical situation), the fact that man built Stonehenge is not actually a 'fact'. You see, going by his idea of science, if I propose aliens built it, not man, someone has to prove me wrong before that's not science. Wonder if I should bother pointing this out over there?

The YEC Article is incoherent[edit]

I know what you're thinking, but it's more incoherent than normal! Look at its excerpt on the front page of CP:

At the same time, young earth creation scientist argue that the young universe view is the inference to the best explanation.

You know: if you utilize your powers of logimagiticy and inteligenciamaticism than it becomes very clear that a young earth is a paramount physicalamonius Truth --with a quite capital T-- per se, vis-vis thereby and there for, and at the same time again, contrapulataminating , those lying darwinist bastard heretics.

Sheesh, you should copy that bit of magnificence into our YEC article somehow... to save it for posterity. humanUser talk:Human 15:40, 27 April 2008 (EDT)

Just some garden variety irony[edit]

I find it amusing that Crocoite is using an xkcd comic on his user page. Especially when xkcd supports such messages as http://xkcd.com/54/ and http://xkcd.com/154/ and http://xkcd.com/164/ (be sure to read the mouse over for the image ) Nothing more. Carry on. PS - ever think http://xkcd.com/136/ will be an entry at a homeschool science fair? --Shagie 15:22, 27 April 2008 (EDT)

The "someone on the internet is wrong" toon also appears on - iirc - Drek's anti-CP blog. Made me chuckle when I saw it there. :D Fox 15:38, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
As a note, could someone fix the licensing on http://www.conservapedia.com/Image:Duty_Calls.png - its not "fair use", it is "creative commons" as specified in http://xkcd.com/license.html - and you need to link to http://xkcd.com/ instead of the jpg itself to be in compliance with the license. --Shagie 15:58, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
