Essay: Ace McWicked - re: Walls, demonstrating and victory

From Conservapedia

Sun Tzu said "What is essential in war is victory, not prolonged operations."

Sun Tzu (c. 400 B.C.) was the author of The Art of War, a classic Chinese treatise on military strategy. Sun Tzu's strategies and tactics utilize the "Eastern tradition of strategy that emphasizes outwitting an opponent through speed, stealth, flexibility, and a minimum of effort."[1][2]

A message to Ace McWicked

Ace McWicked, two points:

1. You wrote at the atheist/agnostic wiki you edit: "In other words, Tzu was not a weakling who hid inside his wall shouting about how he could defeat people without actually doing anything."[3]

The atheist movement is dead/dying and numerous atheists agree with me (see: Decline of the atheist movement).

My side won. Your side lost.

"What is essential in war is victory, not prolonged operations." - Sun Tzu

"For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill." - Sun Tzu

"Simply put, walls work..." - Donald Trump[4]

Gentlemen, in terms of an online article on atheism, there is no article on the internet that is as extensive as Conservapedia's.

The editors of your wiki clearly do not like the article, yet they clearly have not addressed its contents via a work that extensively rebutts it. Why is that? Are they afraid to? See: Atheism and cowardice

Gentlemen, when are you going to have the intestinal fortitude to scale the walls of this Christian castle on atheism?

"Invincibility lies in the defense; the possibility of victory in the attack." - Sun Tzu

2. Ace McWicked, next you wrote: "Accuse your opponents of every moral failing from being obese, being a necrophiliac or a bestiality fiend, and ...lose all respect by being unwilling or too incompetent to actually build and argue an actual position."[5]

A British atheist said concerning my articles: "...they're very detailed, thorough and have lots of quotes and citations." (see: A British atheist on Conservapedia's atheism articles)[6]

A British agnostic wrote concerning my articles: "[He] ...can make some good points, in some ways he is more rational and reasonable than other CP editors."(see: Essay: British agnostic acknowledges the reasonableness of a User: Conservative editor).[7]

Ace McWicked, if you have any legitimate complaints about any of the User: Conservative articles, feel free to have yourself or one of your friends edit any of the relevant talk pages (I know you were blocked from editing a wiki run by an Australian Christian due to your rudeness and calling a New Zealand born chessmaster who can play chess against multiple opponents a "moron".[8] If you are blocked from editing Conservapedia then simply edit this wiki from another location or have one of your friends edit the relevant talk pages). In addition, you or you friends can leave a message in my message area. Furthermore, you can certainly try to rebut the articles on the atheist/agnostic wiki you edit. By the way, there is still no extensive rebuttal to Conservapedia's atheism article at the atheist/agnostic wiki you edit. In short, I don't make it a practice to make false accusations about the atheist population. I demonstrate various matters concerning the atheist population (see: Atheist population and immorality).

By the way, I don't consider atheists/agnostics my "opponents". First, I was awarded a contract by an agnostic/atheist who was aware I created various online articles on atheism. We get along great. Second, the atheist movement is dead/dying. Whether you realize it or not Mr. "Hiroo Onada" Atheist, in terms of the atheism vs. Christian conflict, it is entering a period of "denouement" and your side is losing badly (see: Desecularization and Global atheism statistics). Given their lack of machismo, atheists/agnostics can hardly be called opponents in the truest sense of the word (One of the definitions of the word machismo is an "exhilarating sense of power or strength"). And this especially applies to the editors of the atheist/agnostic wiki you edit (see: Essay: The internet island of atheism that has been bypassed).

Denial (Military strategy)

"For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill." - Sun Tzu

See also: Denial (Military strategy)

Denial is a military defensive strategy where the defender makes it prohibitively difficult for an opponent to obtain a military objective.[9]

A denial strategy is different than a deterrence strategy. A deterrence strategy threatens reprisal. It attempts to changing the opponent’s mind about pursuing a certain course of action. On the other hand, a denial strategy does not seek to change an opponent’s mind. It merely makes an opponent’s objective impossible or prohibitively expensive, regardless of whether or not the opponent chooses to pursue it.[10]

A wall is an example of a denial measure. It hinders an opponent’s attacks without changing the opponent’s inclination to attack.[11]

Ace McWicked: re: your self-imposed wall

The atheist Friedrich Nietzsche wrote: "But now God is dead. You superior men, this God was your greatest danger. Only since he is in the grave, have you risen again. Only now comes the great noontide; only now the superior man will be – Lord!".[12]

The picture of Nietzsche above was taken in 1899. Nietzsche died in 1900. For more information, see: Atheism and arrogance

If you want to edit a wiki and are blocked, the simplest solution is stop being rude and make reasonable edits using another username. It is not rocket science. I would have thought given your "superior atheist intellect", you would have figured that out by now.

By the way, when the atheist User:IluvAviation made a reasonable suggestion concerning one of my atheism articles, I had no problems making the needed change and was happy to do so.[13][14] If only you were more like User:IluvAviation!

I go out of my way to find any factual errors in my atheism articles and have on several occasions challenged atheists to find a single factual error in Conservapedia's atheism article (On a few occasions I changed the article as a result). Unlike many internet atheists, I don't have an enormous ego! See: Atheism and arrogance

A quick reminder about walls

"Simply put, walls work..." - Donald Trump[15]
