Wigocp.svg This Conservapedia-related article is of largely historical interest and is no longer the focus of RationalWiki today.
Conservapedia (and religious fundamentalism to an extent) was a major focal point in the early history of RationalWiki, but long ago ceased coming up with new ways to appall and amuse.
Our energies are now spent debunking other, fresher examples of pseudoscientific claims, authoritarianism, and deceit.
For RationalWiki's less ancient content, try the cover story articles or a random article.

Phli is a universal constant discovered by the acclaimed mathematician Andrew Schlafly. It is defined as the probability of the correlation between an individual's stance on classroom prayers and views on other socio-economic-religious issues. Although phli has little use in pure mathematics, it is of vital importance in refuting dissenting points of view.

Secular, atheist mathematicians have postulated that phli is a doubly irrational number and can be explicitly calculated as: \frac{\pi}{2 \times \phi} or 0.97080551936273328867343281498173...
However, creationists maintain that the biblical value of 0.95 (or 95%) defined in the Book of Numbers is the correct and exact value and is therefore perfectly rational (\tfrac{19}{20}).

On the other hand, this may be a ground breaking mathematical discovery, extending the base of imaginary, rational, and irrational numbers to describe a new number-theory set: psychotic numbers.
