Terry,

Instead of typing out <nowiki>{{Essay}}</nowiki>, you can instead type {{tl|Essay}}. This is less effort and produces a similar result, except that it includes a link to the template: {{Essay}}.

In response to Terry's statements concerning Jesus and how he might live today I feel it is quite simple. The best teachers lead through example and Jesus was sent here to, 'teach', to show us the way to God, so what better way to get there? The most practical of lessons are learned an enacted through specific actions, therefore to follow Christian doctrine and to live the life of a true Christian is to walk, talk, and act as Jesus did. So if we are to attempt to live as Jesus did we are by definition living the life of an extreme liberal. So if you want to get closer to God and be promised eternal salvation you should watch your step and begin as they say to, 'Walk the Walk and Talk the Talk'. copyright 2010, ©baltimoremd

As wordnetweb.princeton.edu/ defines 'liberal',

-broad: showing or characterized by broad-mindedness; "a broad political stance"; "generous and broad sympathies"; "a liberal newspaper"; "tolerant of his opponent's opinions" -having political or social views favoring reform and progress -tolerant of change; not bound by authoritarianism, orthodoxy, or tradition -a person who favors a political philosophy of progress and reform and the protection of civil liberties -big: given or giving freely; "was a big tipper"; "the bounteous goodness of God"; "bountiful compliments"; "a freehanded host"; "a handsome allowance"; "Saturday's child is loving and giving"; "a liberal backer of the arts"; "a munificent gift"; "her fond and openhanded grandfather" -a person who favors an economic theory of laissez-faire and self-regulating markets -free: not literal; "a loose interpretation of what she had been told"; "a free translation of the poem"

66.212.16.194

I may be wrong about this, and this may be encyclopedia policy, but I noticed you banned User:66.212.16.194 for an infinite period of time. It seems somewhat illogical to ban an IP address infinitely, because somebody else may end up with that IP and be unable to create an account.--Tmcfulton 20:37, 13 November 2007 (EST)

That's not how IP addresses work. A little probabilistic math ought to convince anyone that the hazard you describe is a virtual non-issue.--TerryHTalk 20:46, 13 November 2007 (EST)
You're correct, I guess. I was thinking of the way they do it on Wikipedia, but I guess Conservapedia isn't popular enough for this to be an issue.--Tmcfulton 20:50, 13 November 2007 (EST)

Capitalism essentially becomes the practice of making the rich richer and the poor poorer. I do not see why the failure of one or two states that pretended to be communist so they could garner the support of the masses makes capitalism any less abhorrent. And Terry, spouting the occasional occasional fragment of fortune-cookie wisdom does not improve your argument, nor does it compensate for the unequivocally unamicable tone of your response. I mean no offense, I simply didn't expect to be greeted with such open hostility in response to what was intended as a partially fatuous comment. --AngryCommunist 23:03, 4 January 2008 (EST)

You are too late. My opinion of Communism is obviously widely shared. And if it is "unamicable" to say that Communism is bad, then you will see in me the least amicable person you are likely ever to meet on the Internet. Let that suffice.--TerryHTalk 07:27, 5 January 2008 (EST)

Examples of Bias in Wikipedia

I know I'm new here and I haven't made many edits, but could you please give me an explanation for reverting my edit to Examples of Bias in Wikipedia? I didn't delete that example just because I felt like it. One of the sources in the Wikipedia article really does mention something about extrapolation, making our allegation false. I'm not trying to censor anything, I just don't want this site filled with the same kind of lies and inaccuracies that pervade Wikipedia. Best, Gillespie 22:36, 9 January 2008 (EST)

Explain what? Do you deny it?
Do you deny that Wikipedia is six times more liberal than is the American public?
In fact, Jimbo Wales is proud of that statistic. Proud! He seems to think that we "Yanks" are too busy playing cowboys and Indians to be truly enlightened.
If you are prepared to show that that entry is in error--show me. Do it on the Talk page of the article in question, so that everybody who takes as active an interest as I do, will see it as well.--TerryHTalk 23:29, 9 January 2008 (EST)

Hey Terry - I hate to have to ask - but I saw that your online and you had just done a template a bit ago, so I assume you're good with templates. Would you mind helping me out on Template:USState?

Is there something wrong with CreationWiki right now? That seems to happen a lot; it's been going on for several weeks in a row now.

For questions such as this, a good site is http://www.tektonics.org. You can search for keywords (as you can on many sites), or you can look up particular verses. With a quick look I found this page that touches on your question. I also found another page that pointed to a different site with this article, which I haven't read, but I think might be quite useful to you. With a better search, you might be able to find more.

Terry, it's a lot quicker to go look at my contributions, hit the "rollback" button, then hit "back" on your browser and go up the list. By the way, ask Andy if he got my email yet! --HelpfultipsforTerryH 12:00, 15 February 2008 (EST)

Hai

Terry,

Those last two ethereal apparitions of vandals were not me, but I totally endorse what they did. Seems as though I have some admirers!

In regards to the second vandal's tips, it's sound advice. I'd feel sorry for you (that's a lie - maybe a small bit of pity, of definitely not sorry) if one of those WillyOnWheels vandals from last year showed up when you were the only sysop on patrol. Advice is advice, take it from where you can. But, in your defense, it is hard to teach an old dog dinosaur new tricks.

Also, consider archiving those two pages.

You should be looking forward to the next RDubya project - It's an article which systematically compares Conservapedia to your very own definition of extremism! I can't wait for it to be the shining gem of the internet.

By the way, please tell Andy to check his email - I have an important message waiting for him.

Please feel free to email me, the link on my deleted userpage should still be active.

Regards, -Hojimachong

Comment

In my short time here I've noticed two blocks, one with an accompanying IP block. I understand that IP blocks are good site policy for persistent vandals, but absent a showing that the targeted vandal is in fact a persistent, repeat offender, is there any reason to block permanently, other than to suppress dissent? Isn't it conceivable that you just blocked a public computer, or a public WiFi net, meaning now legitimate users can't visit? Seems to me like a poor compromise between security and freedom.-PhoenixWright 14:07, 3 March 2008 (EST)

Hmmm, I appreciate your reasons, although I continue to think they're overbroad. I guess we disagree, but you're free to run your own site (into the ground...?). Further, I did not appreciate the threatening tone, here. In fact, I think it's counterproductive. I was not aware that wikis were autocracies. My experience at (dare I say it? - Wikipedia) was different. I see you're different from them, though, in many significant ways, this not the least. Cheers nonetheless.-PhoenixWright 22:19, 3 March 2008 (EST)

Regarding removal of my articles

Is there any person I can contact regarding removing my articles? I see you reverted my deletion notices. Regards. LChriosa 10:22, 16 May 2008 (EDT)

  1. No need to spam the wiki like this. You are heard.
  2. They are not "your" articles; you donated them without any strings attached.
  3. I deleted a couple already. Your article on Machiavellianism was worthless drivel. I can't believe a professor would use such material as course notes.
  4. If (by some awkward chance) you are really a professor, email me your credentials and we can talk by phone. --Ed Poor Talk 11:02, 16 May 2008 (EDT)


They weren't course notes; they were introductory articles. Quite a difference. I have nothing to prove to you, I don't care if you think I am a professor or not (I amn't by they way, I was a lecturer who taught in England and Ireland for many years, and never attained the title of 'professor') and am not going to Email you and am most certainly not going to let a random person on the internet ring me. What aspect of the Machiavelli article didn't you like? Was it above you? LChriosa 11:39, 16 May 2008 (EDT)

Redheads

Why does it need to be deleted? Sure, the first article I posted was intended to be sarcastic (not against Conservapedia, but against the cruel views with which Redheads are looked upon in England (a trend that stems from bigotry against the Scots, Irish, and Scandinavians).

This has manifested itself in the following forms:

-The Chapman family in Newcastle was forced to move MULTIPLE TIMES due to taunts directed to both parents and children

-We have been beaten up, and one man was stabbed in an alley

-Skinheads are organizing against us

-A waitress was harassed on multiple occasions

-Some of us (though not me, personally) are brought to indignation upon hearing the word "ginger", which isn't much when compared to things like "Firecrotch"

-Countless men, women, and children have been taunted, often resulting in suicide attempts

-Over here in Texas, I, along with a few people I know, have also been the target of obsceneties

-This issue has gained the attention of the press from Austin to Aberdeen, along with being the focal topic of an episode of Southpark, along with countless British media and recent literature.

(pardon my bad spelling; I'm only 16)

My second post sought to explain this. It did not have any liberal bias- only pro-ginger bias (my own). It does not concern conservatism or liberalism*. Besides, I thought this is the place to be biased... isn't it?

*Liberalism traditionally refers to free-market capitalism and relaxed social restrictions similar to Libertarianism. Only in recent years has it been misconstrued to refer to left-wing politics.

Aggrieved's Talk Page Debate

Terry, you came to my Talk page and demanded that I "had better: 1) Provide a citation for your allegation that a significant proportion of Guantanamo detainees have turned out to be innocent of the war crimes imputed to them; 2) Retract your last comment and apologize to me; and 3) Prepare to face blockage for contempt of the administration."

My response:

1) - Multiple citations provided. It is duly noted you never provided a single citation to back up your own false claim; 2) - Not a chance; 3) - No problem. This dialog will be in the record and your willingness to disregard fact, remain uninformed about current affairs, and aggressively police your own mistruths will be duly noted. Martyrdom in the name of truth can be my legacy.

In response to your failure to prove your case, and my success in proving mine, I now demand you: 1. Withdraw your claim on Main:Talk Page that "to a man, every one of those released detainess has turned up doing exactly the same thing again", publicly. 2. Apologize to me, publicly, for your aggressive tone and ill-informed opinion.

Thank you. Aggrieved 21:04, 14 June 2008 (EDT)

rhea article

Hi, great article. Now the bad news :) I came across this as a Random page search and I noticed the first bit with the picture is spread beyond the normal article edge on the left. It would be a bit neater if it could be sized a fraction narrower. I have no idea on how that would be done. If you disagree thats fine ;-) Markr 18:11, 17 October 2008 (EDT)

The problem was with the template that puts a box of information on the right. Somebody duplicated the size, and that duplicate size was uninterpretable and thus the image came through at its original size, which was not what I intended. You'll notice that the images are back to the proper size now.--TerryHTalk 18:19, 17 October 2008 (EDT)
yes thats even better Markr 18:37, 17 October 2008 (EDT)
That error was in there since July last year! Obviously the previous version of MediaWiki somehow coped with it, but the latest version is stricter. It would also explain why the info box in the Earth article was so big the other day. And there's another size duplication in the template, which I'll fix now. Philip J.

I'm sorry for bugging you, if you don't write Guard dog, but this block reason just cracked me up:

Blocked for vandalism with assistance of Conservapedia:Guard dog

Can you tell whoever writes it they probably ought to reword that summary? When I first saw it, before I clicked the link to the page about Guard dog, I thought you were saying that the vandal was using Guard dog to vandalize.

Again, sorry for bugging you, but I saw you using it, and I don't know who develops it.

Thanks, and have a good day!

Samd 10:37, 1 November 2008 (EDT)

Hmmmm, I wrote that. Now that you point it out, I see your point. I wonder what would be best: A comma after "vandalism"?
And just to be overly pedantic, why would you think that the vandal was using Guard Dog to vandalize when it actually says "vandalism"?
Philip J. Rayment 11:00, 1 November 2008 (EDT)
Because I'm a stupid American? :P I don't know. I've always spelled it like that. Why do I spell my name s-a-m? (pedantics in calculus class - uuggghhhh...) A comma would probably be good. Samd 11:25, 1 November 2008 (EDT)

Thanks Terry (sorry for the late reply),

I have an interest in ancient Greek, daily access to a large academic library and, like everyone else, the resources of the Internet. You could describe me as an enthusiastic amateur. Luke has always been my favorite Gospel, containing the best versions of the Parables. I have no particular plans to translate Acts, though I would welcome the opportunity. It would probably be best to regard my edits as first drafts, and I have tried to update the language and convey the intent of the verses.

Please let me know if you want to serve on a blocking policy refinement panel. I invited someone to edit Conservapedia and they were blocked and they should not have been. I got the block overturned. So I think there is room for improvement in Conservapedia's blocking policy. You can sign up HERE. I invited active Syops/Admins plus people with blocking rights who might wish to be Sysops. If I left anyone out, please let them know about the panel. The people with blocking rights can sign up HERE. The panel will probably convene when Iduan is back from his summer vacation or fairly soon afterwards. Conservative 13:47, 13 August 2011 (EDT)

To all senior admins and sysops.

He state’s I am atheist because I don’t agree with some of his ridiculous contentions. In actual fact it isn’t even that I disagree with him it is that I point out his shoddy research, poor scholarship and his berating, insulting and sarcastic behaviour towards others. I am of the opinion now that he is purposely calling me names because he knows I don’t like it which is unchristian, impolite and, above all, insulting. Is anyone going to teach this man some manners? Has Conservapedia become a place where Conservative is allowed to behave this way without any warning or comeuppance but all other editors and warned and blocked for minor infractions. He is in continual violation of the commandments yet NOTHING is done whereas people like myself are always watching out to avoid being banned. Well, fine, ban me if you like. I probably will be after this posting and no doubt Conservative will cackle with glee at “winning” again. But laugh Conservative, you win nothing. I post this is full knowledge that I might be blocked banned and insulted by you in my absence and I have always remained polite and civil plus I can hold my head up high. Hopefully one of you will take a stand and insist on standards of civility. But I don’t hold out much hope. Thanks, many of you were kind, decent people whom I enjoyed working with and I pray for you. MaxFletcher 19:22, 5 October 2011 (EDT)

Your articles

I am rather impressed with the articles you have written. I was reading the one you were working on and thought it was superb. That is a good book, too. Good job!

What is the difference between global atheism and the Question evolution! campaign?

Terry, I have a question for you.

Question: What is the difference between global atheism and the Question evolution campaign?

Here is the answer: The Question evolution campaign is growing and global atheism is currently shrinking by about 300 atheists a day![2]  :) Please pay special note to the words currently shrinking by about 300 atheists a day. :)

Question evolution! campaign community

A Question evolution! campaign online community is forming.[3] Creation Ministries International's Question evolution! campaign is about to break the sound barrier! Volunteer recruiting is picking up steam! Click HERE for details.

I posted on the talk page but thought this might get to you sooner.

There's a messed up wikilink in the 3rd paragraph of the background section. Ayzmo :) 18:28, 17 February 2012 (EST)

Question Evolution! Campaign is achieving its goal - people are questioning evolution!

American young earth creationism increased in the last two years - Gallup survey. Question evolution! campaign and other efforts of creationists are working!.[4]

It is so good to be a Bible believing creationist! It is so easy to crush the pseudoscience of evolutionism. It merely takes getting the anti-evolution message out there.[5][6] Conservative 07:34, 2 June 2012 (EDT)

CNAV account

Sorry if this is a bit off-topic for Conservapedia talk pages:

I have tried to create a CNAV account with the username GregG. I was told that my password would be sent to the e-mail address I provided on the registration form, which is my e-mail address. I never got that message. I also tried to have a new e-mail sent at least once (yesterday), but still I received nothing. Could you take a look into this? GregG 11:51, 28 July 2012 (EDT)

I just sent a message to the e-mail I have on you. Now so far I haven't gotten any delivery-failure notices. But if you don't get a message within the next three hours, then you must have put in the wrong e-mail address.

A serious Biblical matter

Aschlafly wrote the essay Mystery:Did Jesus Write the Epistle to the Hebrews?. This wouldn't have been to problematic, but now he puts his outlandish idea into an article in the main space (Epistle to the Hebrews). First he wrote:

"The Epistle to the Hebrews is the nineteenth book of the New Testament, and one of the greatest mysteries in all of intellectual history: the authorship of this brilliant work is unknown, and the most plausible theory is that Jesus himself wrote or dictated it."

User:Iduan toned this down somewhat, so that we read at the moment:

"The Epistle to the Hebrews is the nineteenth book of the New Testament, and one of the greatest mysteries in all of intellectual history: the authorship of this brilliant work is unknown, and one plausible theory is that Jesus himself wrote or dictated it."

I couldn't find any Biblical scholar who shares this idea, I couldn't find any authorative figure who promotes this - and this isn't much of a surprise if you read the epistle for yourself! The only "scholar" who has proposed this "theory" in the last 2000 years is Andrew Schlafly.

I tried to delete this sentence, and then I tried to make it clear that this idea is a personal insight by Andrew Schlafly. My edits were reverted: any reader of this encyclopedia gets the impression that this theory is something commonly known or well discussed. That's utterly untrue.

I tend to be quite strict on Biblical matters - I'm often accused of being nitpicky. As one of the sysops of Conservapedia who was active in 2012 I ask you to weigh in on this problem: maybe it is just me and most of the of you and your fellow sysops think that it is acceptable to present an insight of a single person in a Biblical matter (an insight shared by virtually no one) as a plausible theory. But - as the title of this section indicates - for me this is a very serious matter.

Good Idea

It might be a good idea to make sure that when you link to articles from headlines that link to your blog (which is a whole other matter entirely, also having issues commenting on your stories, can you look into it) that the links actually link to an article. I have had to fix this up a number of times and would have thought a wiki user of your length of time would make sure this sort of issues do not occur. Dvergne 08:14, 28 April 2013 (EDT)

Homosexuality article and General protection idea/proposal

The homosexuality article seems to be a bit broken. The table of contents is in the wrong position. Could you or another sysop please fix this ? Also I had an Idea re article protection. Would it be possible to protect some article so that only those users with edit and sysop rights edit them. This would allow those pages to be edited and improved by trusted and known users whilst stopping liberal trolls and thugs pushing their POV and vandalizing them. I think that something like this would help improve the quality and accuracy of the encyclopedia as it would allow for updates, improvements, tweaks and general formatting improvements to be made to our most popular articles Dvergne 10:45, 4 May 2013 (EDT)

New Jersey primary issues

Dear Mr. Hurlbut,

This section pertains to this CNAV article by Mr. Purpura. He writes, in relevant part,

TeamNJ candidates will sponsor legislation that will make it compulsory that photo-identification is required prior to casting any vote. Let it be known, the Supreme Court of these United States has ruled that voter identification is by law, Constitutional. You can be sure the Democrats will never accept voter identification because if they did, they would never win another election.
* * *

Multiple voting has become commonplace in many Democratic dominated urban areas across the various states. Do you think NJ is any different?

In Crawford v. Marion County Election Bd. (2008), the Supreme Court analyzed Indiana's 2005 voter ID law against a facial challenge. The challengers did not present evidence of the hardships that would be created by voter ID, as other challengers to other voter ID laws have done (see Frank v. Walker [Wisconsin] and Applewhite v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania). The Supreme Court did not say that any voter ID law would automatically satisfy constitutional requirements.

Next, some Democrats have supported voter ID, even photo voter ID. Illinois has a law dating back to 2005 requiring early voters to present photo ID. Rhode Island has a voter ID law that passed with Democratic support. [7]. North Carolina Democrats proposed their own voter ID bill this year. [8]

Further, Democrats have won elections with voter ID. Leaving aside the numerous congressional and state elections won by Democrats in stict voter ID states, Obama won Indiana in 2008 and New Hampshire and Rhode Island in 2012.

Finally, I know of only one instance of multiple voting in a "Democratic dominated urban area[]" (the Cincinnati poll worker who allegedly voted for Obama six times [9]). Although I think one instance of fraud is one too many, I trust that Mr. Purpura has evidence that multiple voting is "commonplace" in urban areas and in New Jersey. I would like to see such evidence for myself so that I can evaluate it and see how the benefits and costs of various forms of voter ID compare.

In conclusion, if you could please post this on CNAV as a comment (as I still have not been able to get my CNAV account to work) or otherwise forward it to Mr. Purpura, I would appreciate it. Thanks, GregG 11:08, 1 June 2013 (EDT)

Andy approved embedding YouTube videos on the main page as long as its technically feasible. Conservapedia uses the MediaWiki version 1.16.0 as can be see at Special:Version

I see that CreationWiki has a main page video right now at: CreationWiki's main page.

Do you know what is required for Conservapedia to embed YouTube videos on the main page and do you know how to code it? Conservative 17:28, 16 May 2014 (EDT)

This sounds like a pretty good Idea, much more advanced and interactive than anything that is done at wikipedia, has this been implemented yet or is it still a while off completion. SMortlach 10:24, 2 June 2014 (EDT)
