More about CP
Keep up to date with all the insanity at extremist Christian conservative blog Conservapedia right here. This page is for rolling reports of the strange, contradictory or humorous activity at Conservapedia. Archives:

Extension:DynamicPageList (DPL), version 2.3.0 : No results found.

The "up/down" (click on the green and red arrows!) voting is preserved after archiving and is used by the Best of Conservapedia page to allow people to find the highest quality lulz from our many entries.[1]

Add new contributions to the top of this list, and copy the formatting carefully so the polls work properly. Each new entry gets an ID number one higher than the previous one.

Please check older entries to avoid duplication - especially if you see something that's been going on for hours - there's a good chance that someone else has seen it and added it already.

Do not remove items from the list unless you believe they are legally slanderous or otherwise likely to be "detrimental to RationalWiki". Comment out (<!-- WIGO-->) an item if you think it's really an issue. If you think an item is not worthwhile, just vote it down - "one man's boredom is another man's lulz".

Caveat: Due to conservative deceit, some page links from this page to Conservapedia may be broken. To help combat this, WIGO items from late September 2008 on have their links to CP automatically uploaded as images to RW. If a link is down, click the img link to see what it was. Also, anyone not wanting to go to CP can use this to see what everyone is talking about.

What is going on?

6That's funny, Andy put something about Obama talking to the SF Chronicle on the main page about coal, but why did he link to Newsbusters instead of the SF Chronicle? Maybe because there's nothing there? Whew, good thing CP doesn't allow gossip the way WP does.

29Andy Schlafly wants Conservapedia to be taken as seriously as Encyclopedia Britannica and Wikipedia. That's why he added a parody of a tub of butter to the front page.
upneutraldown
25While "anonymous claims of expertise are not allowed, for obvious reasons", they're still totally okay when they are made in anonymous articles about Obama's Evil Mind Control Powers
upneutraldown
16Shorter Andy: I appreciate your extensive, well thought out answer, now allow me to make a totally unfounded assumption before I completely ignore it.
upneutraldown
4Yes, these two edits make perfect sense, perfect sense.

26Domestic violence is like a coed sport for liberals. Also, "real life" only includes your workplace if you are a soldier.

25People who don't go to church but do believe in fairies are probably rationalists[1].

21You know you've reached a whole new level of condescending when you tell a strict creationist to go back and re-read Genesisimg. Also, apparently competing for grades in a Schlafly course entails beatings.
upneutraldown
14Conservative cites a stunning blow against evolution: A poll that shows that the "majority of all doctors (78%) accept evolution rather than reject it" - uh... wait... ah yeah, you have to tell yourself that theistic evolution of course completely rejects whatever this Darwin guy wrote. Then it all lines upimg nicely again.

4Heavens to Betsy! Don't tell Joaquín but Bugler has deletedimg one of his "irrelevant imagesimg"

-1Andrew Yodaimg Schlafly.

3Conservatism954 exposes the parodies by User Handels584 (and others) on Andrew Schlafly's talk page.img It is reported that there is a spoof article titled "Cantonese independence" that the sysops failed to catch (at the time the comment was made) despite numerous links to it. The spoof article can be found hereimg UPDATE: Hmmm... TerryH revertsimg the comments but it seems that the spoof article might stay (article was deleted a few hours later). This might just affirm yet again "the chaotic farce that is Conservapedia". UPDATE: To add insult to injury, this revisionimg clearly shows that the sysops can't handle vandalism very well. There is still a statement that affirms the superiority of British English over American English. I think the sysops missed that one too! Update - Koward reminds us that he reads WIGO.img (but there is still a statement claiming that British English is superior compared to American English)

25This is a cute one.  K e n  D o l l  mysteriously deletes and re-creates this pageimg, for no stated reason. However, looking at the talk pageimg, there was some disagreement with the guy who wrote the blogs hiding the fact that he was the sole author of all of them. So obviously, Ken burned the page in order to hide the history where it happened. But Conservatives don't do deceit, mm'kay? Update At least he's able to jokeimg about it. Updater Having had his bluff called, Ken burnsimg, restores and locksimg all of the Mariano blog articles, presumably to hide the fact that they're all grade-Z blogs made by a single crank who made an advertising deal with Ken. It's impressive how easily deceit comes to him, like breathing.

19Nature is liberal. This update is brought to you by Left Hand - for all those times when you have no clue what Right Hand is doing: However, the editor who suggested it for the News Section and who Andy thanked has been declared a parodist now.

26It's boring when it's asleep. Let's poke it with a stick!img UPDATE: It just rolled over and went back to sleep.img

3Do as i say, not as I do. Speelling things wrngo is badimg.
upneutraldown
27Whatever stupid thing you're debating, if your opponent fails to mention the Bible, their position is wrongimg.

94Chivalry may not be dead, but Andy's "chivalryimg"-motivated decision to give the girls in his American History class shorter, easier tests is proving deadly to moraleimg, even among his biggest supportersimg. UPDATE: If you don't like it, you can leaveimg, so our class will then be left with those who "may not speak up as much" - err, I mean, "do want more chivalry". Update: Phil's a troublemakerimg. MOAR: Bethany ups the ante by stating that her mother objects to his policy, and suggests that Andy asks the other parents how they feel about it tooimg. UPDATE: I'll ask them, but they are probably ill informed.img Also, I don't understand the meaning of the word "equality." MOAR MOAR People warnimg BethanyS of the nature of the beast and show their support.img Andy doesn'timg disappoint.img EVEN MOAR POOL'S CLOSEDimg. Sorry, Beth, chivalry demands I don't ask your opinion or permission. Final (?) Update Class? Sensitivity? Leadership ability? I don't know what those strange words meanimg.
upneutraldown
29It would appear that the preoccupations of real cowboys' thoughts when they are not in the presence of women is other cowboys' backsidesimg UPDATE: Karajou removed the imageimg
upneutraldown
10AlanS AlanE inserts parody,img then lashes outimg at editors who pursue their own "petty ideologies"... You know how this one ends.img Update - And, unblockedimg by PJR
upneutraldown
12Churchgoers tend to date secular people. The number one reason? Their peers aren't behaving traditionally enough.img
upneutraldown
8I think we've gone waaaaaay beyond worrying about clutterimg there, bucko.
upneutraldown
21At least he's more up front about it than Andy: Ken gives sound adviceimg to all editors - "Don't say bad things about my pet articles. I'm in charge and nothing will ever change, suckers!"
upneutraldown
8DeanS decidesimg that even mentioning RationalWiki by name is a prohibited ad.img Good thing that pimping your own work on Visual Thesaurusimg isn't any sort of advert, huh? Update: Andy agrees and adds that CP doesn't "allow links to cites(sic) that smear people and/or incite vandalism"img - even though there was no link in the post. Wouldn't that mean all of CP barring itself?
upneutraldown
16"This discussion is non-encyclopedia and will be deleted soon. I hope nobody saved a local copy or anything." UPDATE: Hey, disaffected CPers! Conservapedia:Debate:Do we put enough emphasis on homosexuality is open for business!
upneutraldown
9Tough, questioning reportersimg for the win! As the linked page says: "If you’re going to shut everybody out who asks you an 'impertinent' question, then that’s not good for anybody and mostly not good for the American people." That's right! No legitimate organization would ever shut anyone out for being impertinent!img

38Jennifer Hudson's seven-year-old nephew is found dead of a gunshot to his head. This must be a gang killing because typical murderers would not harm a child in such a manner.img And Obama was one of only three Illinois senatorsimg (how many Senators does Illinois have?) to vote against barring convicts on bail or probation from having contact with a street gang! (H.B. 1812, which passed anyway, but then was vetoed by Republican governor George Ryan before he was convicted on federal corruption charges.) Not that Obama has anything to do with the death of a kid, but, just sayin'. UPDATE: Obama probably secretly made the bill useless.img
upneutraldown
37Conservative seems to have an obsession with improving PageRank no matter the costimg. He's even threatening liberals with cow-tipping and cat-shoeingimg. UPDATE Newcomer AlanS gives Kendoll something to mull overimgand Sideways gets in on the act.img Will anyone come to Ken's aid? UPDATE AlanS smacks down Kendoll!img MOAR Andy wins the debate.img With extreme prejudice.img
