Introduction

In-depth analysis
Fun
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.

All-time classics worth preserving for eternity are saved at Best of Conservapedia. The "up/down" voting system (click on the green and red arrows!) is how we pick what should go there.[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".

Note to Readers: Due to our incompetence, some page links from this page to Conservapedia may be broken.

What is going on?

12Liberals don't debate because they lose debates that include the other side. Strange, each time Ames offers to debate he getsblocked.
upneutraldown
-5Exactly, Carriagepoo. James Cook and Horatio Nelson were obviously rabbits.
upneutraldown
9Ok, why is the Harvard educated son of a filthy rich Conservative doing calling anything elitist? He's probably never even visited a house worth less than $450,000
upneutraldown
7Hey Andy, a quick question: What on earth are you babbling about? PS, you're a sexist.
upneutraldown
8Obama is a secret Muslim that wants to sell America out to the 57 Islamic Stateseven though that number is inaccurate, Bill Clinton ordered bombing attacks simply to manipulate American opinions, and Michael Moore has never done anything positive in his life, but Bob Jones isn't racist, the Democratic party is DAMN IT!!!!
upneutraldown
2You can say what you want about Ed's silly Writing Assignments, but they are still better than those Karajou dishes out in discussions.
upneutraldown
26Conservapedia's front page currently claims that it is a "liberal myth" that "the non-Christian Vikings (Leif Ericson) reached North America before the devoutly Christian Christopher Columbus did. This is yet another attempt to deny and downplay Christian achievement by distorting history." The first part of this statement is of course complete bunk, but the second sentence is absolutely true. What's more, there is a delightful irony in that it is Conservapedia itself that attempts to deny and downplay the achievement of the Christian Vikings by distorting history! Don't miss the wonderful debates on cp:Talk:Main_Page#Vikings_in_North_America, cp:Talk:Leif_Erikson and cp:Talk:American_History_Lecture_One as Andy once again falsifies history to fit his own agenda!
upneutraldown
8Another deadline for amending the letter to PNAS as Andy declares that it will be sent, today, 2pm (7pm GMT), deffoUpdate: Sent
upneutraldown
3Andy welcomes a public debate with PZ Meyers, or "any evolutionist and/or atheist and/or liberal". Perhaps we can line up sponsorship by the makers of Excedrin and/or Advil. UPDATE: Andy is more than happy to debate, but he wants a security deposit first. WTF is this? A new apartment?
upneutraldown
33Apparently, America started out as the largest male-only village on the planet, and everybody reproduced asexually. Why else would Andy wonder why there might have been women in a Norse settlement?
upneutraldown
6Master of debate, Conservative, once again flexes his formidable intellect
upneutraldown
9Conservapedia Commandments rule out "Rational Enquiry" as a cause of Atheism

10"I have no idea how to get your children into University without having to teach them some actual facts".
upneutraldown
4More Conservapedia Math: If something can be used to prove absurdities (read: counter-intuitive theorems such as the Banach-Tarski paradox) then that means it is wrong.
upneutraldown
5Jinx finally comes to terms with something we have all known for some time now. Yes Jinx, you are a moron. Pwned by a vandal!
upneutraldown
8RationalWiki mourns for the 35 poor students who will have to keep a straight face in Andy's American History Lectures. If you have any questions, here is a handy list of teachers you can contact for impartial advice
upneutraldown
2It's maybe easier to understand why some CP sysops don't trust public schools, and especially classes about scientific concepts, when you consider that Learn Together, for example, spent his science classes watching "Inherit the Wind" and apparently thinks that this is what "usually" happens in normal such classes.
upneutraldown
12Jinx Hi Jinx! misunderstands how the CP/RW relationship works. We point out things like plagiarism, you guys remove it. You should not break the site rules by re-adding plagiarism just because the hint came from RW. Update: "Prove that he's not the original author!" This will be hard, considering that the guy who created the article was already banned a year ago for vandalism... Update: Flawed logic in action: "So I asked the banned vandal if he really is the famous music and theater critic..."
upneutraldown
15More "good" publicity for Conservapedia proudly displayed on the mainpage.
upneutraldown
25After some odd blocking behavior, several RW discussions that would've made Baby Jesus cry, and a short cool-down block, Fox completely snaps on CP and goes on a major blocking spree while engaging Jinx Hey Jinx! in a Wheel War. He had help, though: Somebody gave him a fake magic list of moles and parodists - something not even The Cabal (there is no Cabal) has...
upneutraldown
3John A. Davison, known internet whack job, plugs his "positive" article at Conservapedia.
upneutraldown
2You'd think that with the word "learn" in your username, you would've learned Conservapedia Commandment #5 ("Do not post personal opinion on an encyclopedia entry.") by now.
upneutraldown
13Yeah Terry. The spelling is what's wrong with that article. (Zapped, copied here.)
upneutraldown
29Yes, Kajagoogoo, trying to save electricity and water is EXACTLY like sending your parents to the concentration camps! This should make Godwin's AND Fox's heads explode.Update: Fox thinks "perhaps" it's overdramatic.
upneutraldown
1On the Talk:Judaism page, it's concluded that the word "God" should be written out rather than hyphenated, as some observant Jews do to avoid defacing His name, because "it's a Christian wiki and country."
upneutraldown
6It's a good ole fashioned edit war! Fox adds, Jinx deletes. Hey Jinx! Fox, not content, adds back with edit comment, and Jinx won't let it go.
upneutraldown
20A user removes the "beliefs" section from "Young Mass Murderers." Andy "reverts" the user, conveniently removing killers who stole legally purchased firearms, and a killer who was motivated by hatred of feminism. UPDATE: Andy re-removes the homeschooled/Christian killer and the fella who hated feminists for being "too old", yet keeps the older public-school dressed-in-black murderer.
upneutraldown
23A gunman who hates Christianity shoots up a Church. We'd better mention that he hates Christianity and ignore that the Church he shot up was Unitarian Universalist and may have been targeted for being liberal. Update: Andy removes the claim, yet conveniently leaves in the hearsay source that he hates Christians without the more up-to-date source about him hating liberals.
upneutraldown
3The Universe has decided that Jinx isn't annoying and disruptive enough yet, so it has arranged an encounter with his new mentor, the Grand Master of Disruption!
upneutraldown
6Andy dissects Obama's media coverage with his awesome Conservative Insight X-Ray Spex! TM
upneutraldown
5You know who make the best impartial sources? Ex-girlfriends.
upneutraldown
9Andy Schlafly brings his programming skills to the fore and buggers up the wiki. UPDATE: A sock explains how to optimize MySQL tables, and is thanked politely by HenryS.
upneutraldown
7Yet more ignorance from the Great Educator - a "stunning defeat for the UK Labour party" in Glasgow East, yes, indeed it was. But if Andy had bothered to read the article he posted, he'd know that it was the Scottish National Party who won the seat, not the Conservatives, and so not only does it not signal a Conservative takeover of "all of Britain", it actually means the "all of Britain" thing is slightly more threatened, as the SNP want greater separation of powers from London government.
upneutraldown
13It is official. Girls are dumb. Thank you Professor Andy. Everything is set straight now. UPDATE: Let's have a Conservapedia conference circle-jerk about it.
upneutraldown
13Somebody is calling a spade a spade... Block imminent? And in the meantime a anti-CP Hitchens article would be, well, "something to behold"...Meanwhile, Jinx attacks. Is it wise to be going down that road after defending this edit my friend? UPDATE: The Overlord speaks! And he says, "No comment. Someone else will fix this. I'm going to delete all mention of it. Do not talk about it again." Twice. Update: Memory-holed!
upneutraldown
13Foxy provides Merriam-Webster with the ultimate definition of bitch-slap.
upneutraldown
15Gossip? No, we don't allow that here... UPDATE CPAdmin calls out Karajou... and removes it<nowiki>
upneutraldown
1Bungler bungles: get a nicer account name Randyman1. Oh, you can't -- we've disabled account creation!
upneutraldown
3Returning, head bowed, from earnest duties at WP, Ed Poor forgets to take off the Hat Of Reasonableness.
upneutraldown
28It's a block duel, featuring Jinxmchue v. Fox! It's too bad they can each unblock themselves. UPDATE: Jinx is a tattletale and another conflict ensues... UPDATE: Jinxmhue is apparently an avid reader of WIGO. Hiya Jinx! (we say with even less concealed sarcasm)
upneutraldown
5Does pro Christian mean anti Semitic? Fox has no doubts about the American Family Association.
upneutraldown
23In the aftermath of the JJacob carnage, the vise on Andy's balls is tightened a bit more. UPDATE Poof! (Just in case: saved here)
upneutraldown
10Jinx finally discovers where we hang out and tells Andy he'll "keep an eye on us". I wonder who he thought Conservative was talking to....
upneutraldown
30It's happening! Recently promoted sock JJacob picks his moment to come out of (not so) deep cover and tries to block all the sysops before they can get him! Go JJ! Don't forget anyone! Own the site! UPDATE: Oh well. Andy draws some moral conclusions from the rape of his site.
upneutraldown
-4Archiving: You're doing it wrong.
upneutraldown
10Conservapedia to challenge Lenski to a public debate?
upneutraldown
2Evolutionists fear being bad defeated. Not badly defeated; bad defeated. Andy's qualifications as a teacher shine through once again.
upneutraldown
49Quick Andy! Send the letter before someone with common sense or intelligence tells you otherwise! UPDATE Holy crap, He's going to send it. UPDATE Someone makes a good point on why the letter will not be published, so Andy reverts, blocks, and says Lenski is the one that lacks scientific rigour.UPDATE Looks like the mailing list is almost complete.
upneutraldown
9Jinx, are you just stupid? Not vandalism? How is this not vandalism? Didn't discuss? Maybe his version of discussing is just different from Wikipedia's? Or do you feel a need to have a beef with Wikipedia?
upneutraldown
4But Ken- what on earth will all the Conservapedians do for food if you remove their only source of protein?
upneutraldown
21This is well worth the inevitable perma-ban that's coming. UPDATE: Two permabans—PLB and MBishop, so far. Who's next?
upneutraldown
10What is going on at Conservapedia? Nothing is going on at Conservapedia! As, for the umpteenth time in the past few weeks, the site is inaccessible again. UPDATE: They're baaaaaack!
upneutraldown
14Another satisfied customer! Humblpi's had enough and takes a long Parthian piss into the wind. (Backed up here, for when CP crashes again.)
upneutraldown
13Breaking News!!! Obama leaves an "S" off a word, arguably changing its meaning! An unpatriotic gaffe. What will it be next? Claiming he's qualified to teach American History while telling his students that Lincoln was the second President to die in office? Update: Grammatically owned. Update 2: removed! And by Ed Poor no less.
upneutraldown
8I see a new Conservapedia Commandment coming: "Speak no ill of the right wing dead". Of course you can slag off those nasty left wing victims of Hollywood values.
upneutraldown
16This site is stagnating rapidly! That's 21 non-minor mainspace edits in twenty-four hours.
upneutraldown
2Jacques Derrida, founder of deconstruction, is so not notable that wikilinks to his (redlink) article will be removed. I guess that means that JM couldn't find a good source about him to copy-paste from...
upneutraldown
3Oh snap! CBS says that "Wikipedia Is A Stunning Example Of How The Propaganda Machine Works"! ...no, it doesn't. It just quoted and reprinted a National Review article in their Opinion section. Propaganda and deceit about an article about... propaganda and deceit. Lovely!
upneutraldown
13JBonham, you are a liberal propagandist and inserted a meaningless, incorrect correction. NO thank you. *meanwhile* Glad I thought of this.
upneutraldown
17Greg tries to make nice with Andy; Andy calls Greg a liar, a moron, a cheat, and a liberal.
upneutraldown
3Welcome to CP, where you can get blocked for explaining your reasoning
upneutraldown
9The Eagle Forum University links to CP and features courses Andy (who just happens to be the son of the Eagle Forum founder) also offered on CP. And yet, assuming (on a talk page) that the Eagle Forum somehow sponsors CP will get you a one-week block and some nice censorship
upneutraldown
32Ed Poor denied a sysopship on Wikipedia
upneutraldown
3A user kindly points out that both WND and NRO have closed the door on this whole Barack may not be eligible to run thing... No doubt Assfly will change it right away, however, two weeks and three revisions later, it's still there and what did the helpful editor get for their trouble? Anybody wanna take a guess?
upneutraldown
8Karajou creates a Wikipedia account for the sole purpose of supporting Ed in his RFA. Sadly, he fools nobody and is blocked for being an SPA. Quote Karajou: Arggh, the irony is what really hurts matey.
upneutraldown
42So Conservative has been caught changing quoted material. Will he burn the evidence? Sure, that is what happened.

Notes and snark
