There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Atheism[edit]

What happened there? You took out a large section? Ace McWickedwhisky 05:09, 19 August 2008 (EDT)

No. Check the diff again. I moved it up and incorporated it into a new section. I think it works better to put the rest of the article in context.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 05:11, 19 August 2008 (EDT)
Wheres that NZ section though? NZ is the only country ( I know of the has a agnostic/nearly atheistic government. --Ace McWickedwhisky 05:14, 19 August 2008 (EDT)
Sorry, I'll add it back in somewhere.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 05:17, 19 August 2008 (EDT)
I looked good where it was, in the politics section, but wherever. Ta, Ace McWickedwhisky 05:21, 19 August 2008 (EDT)
I would have just added it back, but I removed that section for the above reason. Sorry. If you feel very strongly about it or think the article as a whole is worse, then please revert the edit back. Cheers :) --Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 05:25, 19 August 2008 (EDT)== Jinx quote ==

That may not really be Jinx who said that ;)Shangrala 10:01, 22 August 2008 (EDT)

Boo! Alas and alack! Thanks for pointing that out, though, I appreciate it.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 10:04, 22 August 2008 (EDT)

Demotion[edit]

You have been an extremely valuable contributor and so have been demoted. Here is all the help you get, live with it. \approx\pi 00:09, 28 August 2008 (EDT)

I was wondering what the hell those red exclamation points were. Thanks.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 00:15, 28 August 2008 (EDT)
Your welcome, have fun. \approx\pi 00:16, 28 August 2008 (EDT)
You know, that is the very first question every person has when they are made sysops for the first time. tmtoulouse heckle 00:21, 28 August 2008 (EDT)
How come you are red exclamating Trent? \approx\pi 00:23, 28 August 2008 (EDT)
Cause I is just a normal user. tmtoulouse heckle 00:26, 28 August 2008 (EDT)
Fair enough. \approx\pi 00:27, 28 August 2008 (EDT)

Quote[edit]

Am I missing something, or was the KJV in English? Pseudomonas 05:54, 29 September 2008 (EDT)

Oh, haha, you're right. Sorry, I'm so used to citing the KJV whenever I reference the Bible, I did it without thinking. Thanks :)--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 07:35, 29 September 2008 (EDT)

Email[edit]

Would you please enable your email? I have a Very Important Email to send you. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 02:56, 8 October 2008 (EDT)

Done. Sorry about that.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 04:13, 8 October 2008 (EDT)

What is this?[edit]

Why did you block me? All I did is write an honest essay. You're just as bad as Conservapedia I guess. Fall down 08:57, 16 October 2008 (EDT)

Hey, I admit you were entertaining. Your nonsense was at least funny nonsense. We even sort-of preserved it, after a fashion. The main reason I blocked you was because I was afraid you were Jesus. I block everyone I see, just in case they're secretly the Messiah. I figure that once he's known, everyone will be on him, so I have to get my licks in while I can.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 12:32, 16 October 2008 (EDT)
Where is his essay saved? - User \approx\piFor best results lather, rinse and repeat 22:31, 16 October 2008 (EDT)
In my heart of hearts.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 04:37, 17 October 2008 (EDT)
Well I know why you don't want people to see it; you know it's probably true. Fall down 09:14, 18 October 2008 (EDT)
Probably true? Have some faith in your convictions!--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 10:32, 18 October 2008 (EDT)
Well then, bring it back. I said probably in relation to you, not me; in any case, I don't have absolute faith in all my convictions. Fall down 11:39, 19 October 2008 (EDT)
Sorry, you seem way too half-hearted for me to bring it back. When you're more certain about your misogynism, then we can talk.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 20:04, 19 October 2008 (EDT)
If he has left a drive-by essay stick it in the essay space and mark it {{driveby}} so we can all laugh at his childish scribblings on the wall. - User \approx\piFor best results lather, rinse and repeat 17:34, 20 October 2008 (EDT)
I could do that. But it seems like it would take four or five mouse clicks, maybe more.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 05:16, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
Mouse clicks are a renewable resource. But then, so is stupidity. Wazza (Not Wazzock, Wazza)Approach the Presence 05:19, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
Restore my essay, dammit. I wrote it. I'm using Tor so you can't stop me.
Oh, it's you, Fall down. Why didn't you say so? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 18:11, 28 October 2008 (EDT)
I think I just did. You're conspiring againt me and the truth. Fall down 18:23, 28 October 2008 (EDT)
I don't recall you ever saying that you were User:Fall down. Or what page you wanted resurrected. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 18:26, 28 October 2008 (EDT)
I still have faith you're really Jesus, Fall Down, don't worry.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 19:26, 28 October 2008 (EDT)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks for the help with the Wal-Mart article (and for not calling me out in that debate when I started sounding eerily like Bugler...especially the whole random "change my argument completely in the middle of the discussion" thing...)!— Unsigned, by: A Writer of Vaudevilles / talk / contribs

No worries. :) --Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 01:05, 8 November 2008 (EST)

Achewood[edit]

I remember you were a big fan of the strip, even though it's not my cup of arsenic. So I thought you might be interested in this interview with the guy who created it. --Kels 20:12, 20 December 2008 (EST)

Hey, thanks :) --Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 21:43, 20 December 2008 (EST)
I always gotta share the art, y'know. --Kels 22:37, 20 December 2008 (EST)

Thanks[edit]

For Responding to the Content of my Essay.--Tolerance 12:48, 28 February 2009 (EST)

Come see Ace[edit]

You should come visit Ace when you come to NZ. AceMcWicked 02:00, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Well, that won't be for a year, but sure thing, that'd be cool.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 02:26, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
You can stay in my spare room and eat my food and drink my booze water and use my fiancee toilet computer to post to everyone at RW that you can't sleep at night due to Ace's wailing at the full moon. AceMcWicked 02:34, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Pomposity?[edit]

Do you work as a local journalist by any chance? You have all the pomposity of a pencil pusher. — Unsigned, by: 134.226.1.229 / talk / contribs

No, I don't.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 11:28, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Ah, it's "MC." Hm. I'm not sure those who live in glass houses should throw stones. Your constant and proud declarations of aloofness would be hard to number.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 11:32, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi.[edit]

I like your style Tom. That is all.--BobNot Jim 07:35, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 08:00, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Ah no thank you Tom. It always cheers me up to read your contributions.--BobNot Jim 23:12, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Poem...[edit]

I wrote this some years ago. AceMcWicked 20:14, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Lab Meat[edit]

In light of that previous debate I thought you might find this interesting (and possibly horrifying). AceMcWicked 20:30, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Creepy...--Tom Moorefiat justitia 22:11, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
Moral crisis averted, right? I wonder how this will fare environmentally. — Sincerely, Neveruse513 / Talk / Block 22:16, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
I can't imagine it will be more efficient when it comes to resources anytime soon, but perhaps one day in the future.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 02:11, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Beck tears[edit]

Hi Tom,

Did you notice the video in the link? It sounds to my (admittedly poor) hearing they're saying they're going to need more tears.

What is your conclusion?

--UnicornTapestry 20:41, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Uh... that they needed more tears for the photo shoot that yielded this photo, a bit of self-mockery? The tears are faked, but that's okay because no one was supposed to think them real.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 20:50, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

A question[edit]

Would you eat meat if it were your own farm? I mean, if you had a couple of pigs and chickens on your own land. AceMcWicked 21:22, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

I don't know. Maybe. A lot of my "no meat" rule is for the sake of practicality... if I parse it, I'm sure there are lot of ways I could find to eat meat. But that's really hard for someone like me, who loves it so much. Far easier is to draw a simple line and live by it. It's the same way a lot of moral issues must be solved.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 21:26, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
The crux of you no meat argument was the environmental impact and factory farming. But if you had your own little patch of land and a few free range animals..? AceMcWicked 21:29, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
I guess, maybe. I would see little objection to it on moral grounds, assuming I cared for them, even though I would still be killing them for the meat (something I think isn't right). Many or most of the environmental reasons would be fixed. But on the other hand, it would perpetuate a meat-eating culture in some ways by supporting the practice. So it's kind of a tough one. Again, it's just plain easier to just not eat meat.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 21:35, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
But the meat eating culture does not rest squarely upon your shoulders. AceMcWicked 21:38, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
I do contribute to it, though. And all I can do is take responsibility for that small bit.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 21:41, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Your 'MC' template[edit]

You do realise that by posting that up everywhere you are only proving your own lack of a sense of humour and re-inforcing the perception that you're a pompous twat? MarcusCicero 18:46, 4 December 2009 (UTC) Troll Troll ĴαʊΆʃÇä₰ hi there! 18:53, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, that one wasn't even really trying, was it. And he used to be such a good troll. --Kels 06:13, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Community story[edit]

What a lovely idea to get away from the bullshit that's been going on around here. I tip my hat to you. --Yo-YoInvitation to a Beheading 09:18, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, glad you like it.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 10:19, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
