Hi.

Though I'm a bit of an anglophile, I'm actually Canadian.

I spent a lot of time on Conservapedia, just looking. Alternating between amusement and horror. Inevitably I arrived here.

Favourite CP quotes:

"Christianity and Judaism teach that deceit is morally wrong, but public schools do not... Nearly all of these examples consist of deceit that was embraced by many people in order to advance an ideological goal...Embraced deceit is deceit that is knowingly allowed, defended or even promoted for ideological purposes... Embraced deceit is common." -CP on Deceit.

"Women in the military can help a country by relieving men of jobs which either sex can do, thus providing more men for combat duty." -The first line from "Women in the Military."

"Q: Is this your personal blog, or what?! A: No, but it just so happens that nearly every word I type, link I create, article or template I start - gains instant and widespread acceptance. Q: Isn't that a bit arrogant? A: Okay, I guess you're right. Perhaps I should be more humble...senior staff have been amazingly tolerant of opposing ideas here." The FAQ from Ed Poor's User Page.

"If you cannot falsify it...it must be true!" Karajou, Talk: Essay: Was Noah's Ark Real? (No).

"Apparently, if we look at the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany (the Nazis didn't fully persecute gays, see Homosexuality in Nazi Germany and Homosexuals and the Holocaust), and the Roman Empire, these two countries have homosexuality legal, but these countries lost their freedoms. Also, in Britain, Canada, and Sweden, known to be gay friendly countries, people lost their freedom to criticize gays." KStanley debating whether Homosexuality is Responsible for Totalitarianism.

BrainMop.jpg As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I, MertonVsHislop, pledge to only block users if they ask for it, or insert unfunny vandalism.
I furthermore pledge that if I indulge in secret private conversations about you, we will make a formal report to the mob. Is that all?
If you impugn my motives without warrant, or challenge my "AUTHORATIE", er, there is nothing I can or will do.
