Conservapedia - Most Accurate Shite On The Web*

Postby Griffmo » Sun Mar 14, 2010 12:45 am UTC

*Not really.

I couldn't find another thread so I figured I'd point you in the direction of Conservapedia!. If this is in the wrong place feel free to move it.

http://www.conservapedia.com/Main_Page

Liberal:

A liberal (also leftist) is someone who rejects logical and biblical standards, often for self-centered reasons. There are no coherent liberal standards; often a liberal is merely someone who craves attention, and who uses many words to say nothing.[1] Liberalism began as a movement for individual liberties, but today is increasingly statist, and in Europe even socialistic.

Obama:

Barack Hussein Obama II aka Barry Soetoro, (allegedly born in Honolulu Aug. 4, 1961) is the 44th President of the United States, and previously served less than four years as a first-term Democratic Senator from Illinois (2005-2008). Obama and his running mate Senator Joseph Biden won the presidential election[9] after 23 months of campaigning that spent over $700 million,much of it raised from undisclosed or fraudulent donors.[11] Obama spent far more per vote than McCain did: Obama spent $7.39 per vote, while McCain spent only $5.78 per vote.[12] Claimed by liberals to be a brilliant orator, Obama depends completely on reading from teleprompters when he talks, even in an elementary school.[13]

As President, Obama has pushed for establishing a Palestinian state over the objection of Israel's Prime Minister,[14] inclusion of Turkey in the European Union[15] and holding Guantanamo detainees indefinitely without trial.[16]

Since abandoning the "War on Terror" in Obama's first year, the rate of terrorist attacks on the United States has gone from zero per year during George W. Bush's last year, [17] to at least four.
[18][19][20][21][22].

Obama's budget and stimulus bill advanced his socialist idea of "spreading the wealth."[23] [24] His health care plan would force individuals to purchase health care or pay fines and force many into a poorly run single payer system.[25] To announce his trip to Berlin in July 2008, Obama used posters which show a marked similarity to posters of Lenin and Che Guevara.[26][27] During Obama's youth in Hawaii, he developed a strong, almost Father/Son relationship with Frank Marshall Davis, a high level Communist Party functionary[28] while Obama has stated that his favorite professors in school were themselves Marxists.


I shit you not.

The fact people believe absolutely blows my mind.

No it isn't satire, I checked.

You'll find that quite a few of the articles on Conservapedia are actually written as parodies by people to extract the michael from the site. Sadly, a much larger number of articles are written earnestly.

Yeah, it's a riot. In every sense of the word.

I especially like how they use the words "logical" and "biblical" in the same phrase, implying they have related meanings.

They also have a habit of reverting unacceptable content (read, anything that makes them look bad) and even oversighting it, which is about as close as you can get to deleting things on a wiki.

I've had two accounts banned. One was for politely pointing out that a federal law against hacking doesn't include wiki vandalization. The other was for challenging (once again, politely) the founder about not having an email linked to his account, when they make a point of having everyone have an email.

Andrew Schalfly, the founder, is the son of the infamous Phyllis Schlafly. He believes, among other things, that the Theory of Relativity is a liberal conspiracy to waste taxpayer money, that vaccines are the cause of Shaken Baby Syndrome, and that abortions cause breast cancer.

For more interesting stories, and up-to-the-minute reports on the insanity that is Conservapedia, see http://rationalwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page.

Fun fact- mentioning RationalWiki in any form on Conservapedia will get you an instant permaban.

The kerfuffle between Andrew Schlafly and Richard Lenski over E. coli which evolved to metabolize citrate was quite entertaining and included one of the best takedowns of a creationist ever. A good chronicle of the "debate" can be found here:

I like how they attempt to explain pregnancy without mentioning the sexual aspects, and any and all sexual contact is sinful unless between a man and a woman who are married and want to bear children.

It's just so incredible I can't believe it even when I try really hard. They're just so obvious about their bias and hateful agenda, and they still use the word "trustworty" to describe themselves...

Clearly, the block was for using "less" when you should have used "fewer". There can be no other reason.

I like about the image how they completely failed at anatomy. I hear you saying "but it's satirical!" and I reply with "You could at least write cerebellum instead of hypothalamus, since that's what we're actually looking at right there."

Also, I am surprised the site hasn't been trolled out of existence. Either trolls aren't as plentiful as we're lead to believe, the team is much more competent than I give them credit for, or the trolls are having too much fun to actually make the guy give up.

Probably because it seems quite difficult to make an account. I tried to but failed to make an account recently to try to bring some of their articles to follow their own rules a little better. Yeah, I'd probably get banned within five minutes but oh well.

A significant fraction of the users, apparently, are actually folks from RationalWiki undercover. The thing is, it's really hard to spot them, beccause not matter how hard they try to sound ridiculous, they can't sound any stupider than those who actually believe. Poe's Law.

I too tried to sign up, but the system will not let me create an account. I don't know if there's currently an IP block on my area, or if their system just failed again. I wouldn't be surprised if it is; apparently a lot of these folks are a bit clueless.

This is just a theory of mine, but I think accounts can only be created when it is early evening in the US. If anyone does get an account, I dare them to precede every statement on the Obama article with 'allegedly'.
His alledged running mate is Joe Biden. He is allegedly the forty-whateverth president of the allegedly United States. Liberals allegedly love him...

and so on.

Look at these excerpts from the contents:

13.13 Homosexuality and Anal Cancer
14 Homosexuality and Illegal Drug Use
16 Untruthful Homosexual Activist Ideology Costs Lives

I'm still disappointed that they removed 'Many Gay Men Regularly Ingest Faeces'.
That was actually on there. Read their article on Wikipedia, or the one regarding public schools. [breaks down into uncontrollable laughter now]*

I'm surprised the hivemind of /b/ hasn't done anything yet. They were foolhardy enough to take on CoS. Btw, I would like to make it clear that this is NOT a suggestion to /b/tards. I have problems with 4chan in general and /b/ in particular, and in this case I believe that Conservapedia is the lesser of two evils.

/b/, despite it's profuse racism and sexism, is mostly populated by 20 something white males who are not prejudiced or racist in real life. It's all lingo, their form of speaking to each other.

Yeah, as a former /b/tard whose friends also share that label, I don't think most of them are really racist/sexist. It's kind of like when you see a character on television say something racist, and you laugh not because you think it's true, but because of how flagrantly racist they are. There's something similar to that behind /b/, except they made an arms race out of it.

On a base level, and from a UK political sense, the heading of that is perfectly fine.
The Liberal Democrat [LibDem] party, a merger of two prior parties, Liberals and Social Democrats, sit on the left side of British politics, and are the most socialist of the bunch.

I'm still against DoS. That would be stooping to the level of Conservapedians that censor anything not fitting with their narrow world-view.
Scenes from the dim, dusty, back corner of Omegle:
Stranger: He's a loving, sensitive man.
You: He's a neo-nazi.
Stranger: Your point being?

A significant fraction of the users, apparently, are actually folks from RationalWiki undercover. The thing is, it's really hard to spot them, beccause not matter how hard they try to sound ridiculous, they can't sound any stupider than those who actually believe. Poe's Law.

I too tried to sign up, but the system will not let me create an account. I don't know if there's currently an IP block on my area, or if their system just failed again. I wouldn't be surprised if it is; apparently a lot of these folks are a bit clueless.


This may be a bit off topic, but I can't help noticing that the 'conservative nutjobs' are indistinguishable from a parody of themselves. I remember reading somewhere that this was also true of postmodernism. Thinking about it more, it's also true of a lot of other things. My question is, where isn't this true? Science?
I belong to the tautologist's school of thought, that science is by definition, science.

You've been around for a year and you still think that?
I knew a woman once, but she died soon after.
