Essay:Does Conservative have machismo?
Is the Conservapedia sysop "Conservative" (Ken) a man filled with courage, truth, and conviction or a man who is a cowardly pseudo-intellectual pantywaist?
To help answer this question, take a look at his userpage, which is lamer than the average 13 year old teenybopper's Myspace profile. He even says he likes Des'ree! (No explanation needed on that one, guys).
Señor Ken Doll is not the epitome of machismo? Why might this be the case? Was this unfortunate situation caused by creation? Was it caused by being pampered by his mommy? Was it caused by a lack of free will, and a heaping helping of gayness for Jesus?
One of the definitions of machismo is an "exhilarating sense of power or strength". Concerning Ken's work on Conservapedia (if you call it that), it would be very difficult for Señor Ken Doll to have and exhilarating sense of power or strength. However, as polling in 2006 indicates that less than half of the US and British populace accept the evolutionary paradigm as the best description for the development of life, he is not alone in his intellectual weakness. (see: Geographic Locations where evolutionary belief is in the minority or declining ). In addition. polling indicates that the evolutionary paradigm is losing public support in the United States, hence Christians' (like Ken's) lack of machismo, and blind devotion to their gayness for Jesus.
Also, Señor Ken Doll's anti-atheism campaign on Queerservapedia (actually it's not much of a campaign, it's more like the crayon doodling of a whiney toddler on a piece of scratch paper, but anyway...) has not had much of an impact in terms of gaining new adherents to the creationist lie campaign. Indeed, most people have never heard of Conservapedia, while most of those who are unfortunate enough to find Conservapedia find it so bad that they can't tell if it's a parody site made by liberals intended to make conservatives look as stupid as possible (sadly it isn't - or is it?), while Wikipedia's name is now household, and is still in the Top 10 most visited sites in the world.
A prime reason for the ineffectiveness of creationism is the shallowness of its material. For example, even the majority of American Christians (as well as the Catholic Church itself) agree that creationist and other science deniers are complete wackos.
Evidently, Señor Ken Doll does not appear to be having much of an impact among the public or the intelligentsia (why do you think he edits Conservapedia?) which must make Señor Ken Doll feel impotent - especially when he compares his personal impotence to Richard Dawkins's omnipotence. On the other hand, if Señor Ken Doll left his dweeby creationist "beliefs" behind and became an atheist, he could step out of the mire of impotency rather than spending his Saturday nights praying to Jesus to give him a bigger dick (while all his high school friends are out on dates, of course).
Secondly, it is hard to believe that Señor Ken Doll has machismo because his work is so filled with pseudoscience. Within the evolutionary science community and the creation science community, Ken has faced charges of engaging in pseudoscience and has also faced charges of committing elementary errors. (This is Conservapedia after all - see nearly anyone of his articles for the evidence - not explantion needed).
Renowned evolutionary biologists such as H. Allen Orr, David Sloan Wilson, and Massimo Pigliucci obviously haven't given Conservapedia the time of day (for obvious reasons), yet if they had, they would likely stand in amazement at Ken's numerous elementary errors (though for that matter, Conservapedia is pretty much just one big elementary error, so he probably wouldn't stand out from the pack).
As far as the social science of history, Ken Doll has engaged in historical revisionism when it comes to the acts of mass murders committed by Christians, as well as the [www.evilbible.com Bible verses which endorse these depraved behaviors]. In addition he attempts to downplay the societal decay caused by religious fundamentalism and science denial.
Thirdly, it is very hard to believe Señor Ken Doll has the conviction that his work can withstand scrutiny. Seriously, he has to be a parodist. For example, it is time for Señor Ken Doll to debate stop dodging debate on Conservapedia while banning his detractors instead. It is time for Señor Ken Doll to delete his repertoire of junk articles and the truly embarrassing content that inhabits them. The deep shame that Señor Ken Doll obviously must feel about the his Conservapedia addiction, could be replaced with strong feelings of masculinity and bravado even if Señor Ken Doll lost an open on-site debate (which he would inevitably do). Ration*lWiki members have offered Ken to debate them so he could gain back some of his manhood, but Kenny Boy has yet to take him up on his most generous and kind offer). Now setting aside the unpleasantness of the idea of an open debate on Conservapedia for a moment, it is also time for Ken to debate Richard Dawkins and every other evolutionist and atheist he's slandered! In addition, the fundamentalist and science denier Kenny has shown inconsistent and deceptive behavior concerning his refusal to debate scientists and atheists. Now granted, it will be quite humbling for Ken to lose all these debates, but at least Señor Ken Doll can claim to possess a measure of machismo. Of course, if Señor Ken Doll published fine works in the field of evolutionary biology, Señor Ken Doll would have great confidence his work could withstand scrutiny and he wouldn't have to spend so much time in his "intellectual bunnyhole" hiding from strong debaters of the opposition. It is very sad to see the machismo challenged Señor Ken Doll hide in his wretched intellectual bunnyhole when he could do so much better.
extensive data common sense, it appears Kenny may not be very popular at all with Hispanic any women. Why is this so? Is it because hispanic women think Ken is an abrasive creationist who lacks charisma? No! That cannot be the problem! It is simply because Señor Ken lacks the manly confidence, attitude, and demeanor that many Hispanic ladies expect to see in a man (that and the fact that he likes Des'ree - and says he isn't gay) and this can easily be explained. One the reasons why Señor Ken acts unmanly in front of these Hispanic ladies is that he understandably lacks confidence. There are certainly indications of that he may be plagued by inner doubt concerning the legitimacy of Christianity and the creationist paradigm. Señor Ken's idol Andy Schlafly clearly squirmed when he asked a renowned biologist for an example of genetic information arising from a mutation, and unmanly dodged the biologist's with an unrelated monologue - so naturally this behavior has rubbed of on Kenny. Also, there is the example of Señor Ken doubting the legitimacy of the creationist paradigm, as he seems afraid of open debate - if he was confident in his beliefs, then why would he be afraid to debate evolution? Indeedk creationists like Señor Ben Stein often give inept responses regarding the existence of God, such as he did during his interview with Richard Dawkins, certainly showing that Señor Stein lacks inward assurance concerning the validity of his creationism.VIDEO On the other hand, Señor Dawkins displayed mucho machismo.
Right now, ladies are quite troublesome to Señor Ken Doll. Women constantly kick sand in Señor Ken Doll' face when he goes to the beach because they are quite upset with Mr. Ken Doll. The ladies see the tough talking and outspoken Dawkins before the friendly conservative press, but Señor Ken Doll avoids at all cost debating strong debaters from the opposition. So unfortunately for Señor Ken Doll, he is a weak conservative showman who cannot enjoy a day at the beach.
Now if Mr. Ken Doll were to debate strong debaters who were evolutionists, Señor Ken Doll could carefully observe how they walked, talked, and how they generally carried themselves. Using this information, Señor Ken Doll could learn to act more manly. And if Mr. Dawkins were to do many of these debates, perhaps some of the manliness of these atheists could rub off on Señor Ken Doll. Also, given all the courageous evolutionists women martyrs in history, atheist women debate opponents could serve as a role model for Señor Ken Doll so he could be less of a chicken. Through continual debating of worthy opponents perhaps some day Señor Ken Doll could earn the right to debate one of the most manly evolutionists in all of Evolutiondom - Señor Chris Langan, who has an IQ of 210 and was a tough-as-nails Long Island Bouncer for 20 Years, and despite believing in a god, does not stoop to the pathetic form of science denial that is creationism.
Just think of the amazing possibilities! Instead of knowing deep down that he is merely Hovind's poodle, Señor Ken Doll could aspire to be Hovinds's fearless chihuahua! No more shrinking from debating evolutionary scientists! Señor Ken Doll could fearlessly charge like Don Quixote into creation vs. evolution debates despite the fact that creationists
usually always lose the creation vs. evolution debates! Next time the creationist community holds a worldwide convention, Señor Ken Doll would challenge Richard Dawkins to debate instead of cowardly shrinking from debate. Once Señor Ken Doll had machismo, Señor Ken Doll might dream of a "golden age of creationists". Given that creationists are a small minority in most of the world due to the folly of the creationist lie campaign, no doubt the tiny, rusty tin age of creationism that Señor Ken Doll finds himself in now must be quite depressing to Señor Ken Doll.
Perhaps through a sustained effort, Señor Ken Doll could convince a few prominent creationists to finally have the courage to debate any and all issues - even the "creation vs. evolution" issue! (Not that there's any real controversy about the fact of evolution, hence the quotes). Then Ken Doll could say to Richard Dawkins: You may be an over-educated elitist librul limey, but I finally have MACHISMO, y'all!
The Anthony Powell incident provides evidence that Christians are more likely to commit the cowardly act of suicide (as well as sexually stalk and murder young women!) Given that the Christian community didn't want the stigma of cowardly suicides to stain their community, the Christian community has tried many misguided attempts to become more manly. For example, they have studied the works of Christian psychologists, such as those of George Rekers of the Family Research Council, in hopes of becoming more brave and masculine, but in all too many cases it failed to give them machismo (nor did it help that Georgie was caught in a hotel room with a young Hispanic male hooker who he met on rentboy.com). For example, via the coaching of Christian psychologists, primal scream therapy (aka "exorcism") was tried as a "cure" for homosexuality, using the most manly screaming and yelling Christian could muster, but to no avail. Given that Rev. Ted Haggart was a Christian, his methods (not his meth, his methods) were also tried. but this in fact made Christians less manly as they tried to blame their closeted homosexual tendencies on their parents. After all is said and done, the Christian psychologists failed to make the Christians more manly than atheists. But, if Señor Ken Doll was able to gain machismo, the creationist community could tell the world that they are less cowardly! Under the leadership of Señor Ken Doll, perhaps some day wave after wave of kamikaze creationist and intelligent design debaters could be sent out to lose debate after debate after debate!
After all is said done, of course, the best way for a creationist to gain a more courageous disposition is to stop being a creationist. Donald Morgan once said: "A thorough reading and understanding of the Bible is the surest path to atheism."
"Cowards die a thousand deaths. The valiant taste of death but once." - William Shakespeare
