Question: Seven is a very biblical number. Is it merely a coincidence that there are seven profound differences between Phyllis Schlafly and RationalWikians? I will let you carefully read this essay and be the judge!
Phyllis Schlafly lead the opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment.

Liberals and leftists recently tried to resurrect the efforts to get Equal Rights Amendment passed, but they failed.

RationalWiki.org is a politically left-leaning website that skews towards atheism/agnosticism in terms of its worldview. The RationalWiki website lost a huge amount of web traffic compared to its previous peak web traffic (see: RationalWiki and web traffic).

Phyllis Schlafly (August 15, 1924 – September 5, 2016) was a founder of the modern conservative movement.

The New York Times wrote about Phyllis Schlafly:

I was struck by how their stories echoed tales of conservative political awakening. Until the rise of Mr. Trump, wave after wave of right-wing Republican activism was driven by comfortable but morally scandalized suburbanites, particularly suburban women. Shaken by what they saw as liberal attacks on beloved institutions — family, church, law enforcement, private property — they organized politically, and found meaning and community in it.

This phenomenon long predates the Tea Party movement that so galvanized Republican voters for the 2010 midterm elections. In her 2001 study, “Suburban Warriors: The Origins of the New American Right,” Lisa McGirr described how Orange County, Calif., became ground zero for militant conservatism in the early 1960s: “At living room bridge clubs, at backyard barbecues, and at kitchen coffee klatches, the middle-class men and women of Orange County ‘awakened’ to what they perceived as the threats of communism and liberalism.”

Campaigning to save the nuclear family from the depredations of the Equal Rights Amendment, Phyllis Schlafly induced housewives to become local activists.

“These were local women whom most politicians feared to alienate,” wrote Mrs. Schlafly’s biographer, Donald Critchlow, “because these women talked politics, volunteered in political campaigns and wore political buttons when they came to meetings.”

Democrats have their passionate local leaders, but they’ve lacked a Schlafly-style nationwide network of kitchen-table activists. And outside big cities, the party has allowed its local infrastructure to wither.[1]

Question: Are there seven profound differences between the life of the conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly in terms of how wisely she lived her life and how RationalWikians live their lives? If so, what are they? Continue reading and find out!

According to the New York Times, Phyllis Schlafly was an accomplished debater. Unlike Conservapedia, RationalWiki does not offer debates. RationalWikians are bad debaters

She was described by The New York Times as the "one of the most relentless and accomplished platform debaters of any gender to be found on any side of any issue."[2] "I think she's probably the best political organizer we've seen in American history," stated historical author Rick Perlstein.[3]

Unlike Conservapedia, RationalWiki does not offer debates. Like most atheists and agnostics, RationalWikians are bad debaters. See also: Atheism and debate and Atheism and cowardice

Debating takes courage and conviction which is something that RationalWikians lack!

"Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage." - Maya Angelou


Richard Dawkins
The Oxford University Professor Daniel Came wrote to the New Atheist Richard Dawkins:: "The absence of a debate with the foremost apologist for Christian theism is a glaring omission on your CV and is of course apt to be interpreted as cowardice on your part."[4] See also: Atheism and cowardice
Dr. Greg Bahnsen became known as "the man atheists fear most" due to Michael Martin's cancellation of their scheduled debate.[5][6] See also: Atheism and debate

Phyllis Schlafly was an incredibly effective grassroots organizer who was able to mobilize women. RationalWiki.org is a dying website where the majority of contributors are male

Playwright Dahvi Waller said that Phyllis "was an incredibly effective grassroots organizer, and she was able to mobilize women. That was her superpower."[7]

In June of 2022, the RationalWiki admin GrammarCommie said that RationalWiki was "half dead".[8] In reply, the RationalWiki user 2friedeggs said: "This site is dying for a reason" and he indicated that GrammarCommie was chasing good faith editors away. In addition, in June of 2022, RationalWiki user Neiltyson1fan called RationalWiki a "zombie wiki".[9]

The RationalWiki website lost a huge amount of web traffic in the latter part of 2019 and throughout most the first half of 2020 (see graphics below). According to the web traffic tracking company Alexa, the website lost global market in the latter part of 2021 (see: RationalWiki and Alexa rankings). In January of 2022, SimilarWeb.com reported that the RationalWiki.org website was dropping in terms of its global ranking of web traffic (see: 2022 state of RationalWiki.org in terms of web traffic and web marketing metrics).

Most atheists are male. Therefore, it is not surprising that most RationalWikians are male. RationalWikians, just admit it. Unlike Phyliss Schlafly, you do not have the superpower of mobilizing women!

As can be seen above, according to the leading SEO marketing website SEMRush.com, the amount of Google referral traffic going to RationalWiki.org went down in June of 2022. The RationalWiki website lost a huge amount of web traffic compared to its previous peak web traffic (see: RationalWiki and web traffic).

RationalWiki.org is a dying website where the majority of contributors are male.
Social media shares for Conservapedia's atheism article. The above graphic is a screen capture taken on November 3, 2017 from the website Sharedcount.com

RationalWiki's atheism article has never had 6,000+ Facebook likes because RationalWikians are luddites who have great difficulty understanding social media marketing strategies. On the other hand, Conservapedia's Operation Grassroots was a smashing success! See also: Conservapedia:Atheism articles statistics

Question: Many women like to share family and baby pictures on Facebook. Mrs. Schlafly was an outstanding grassroots organizer and very effective at mobilizing women. Did Mrs. Schlafly and some of her Eagle Forum Facebook followers participate in Conservapedia's Operation Grassroots which was a big success? If so, how many Conservapedia articles were shared during Operation Grassroots?

Question: If Phyllis Schlafly did not get involved in Conservapedia's Operation Grassroots, does User: Conservative understand social media marketing strategies better than the modern-day Luddites at RationalWiki?

Roe vs. Wade: RationalWilians vs. Phyllis Schlafly. Phyllis Schlafly won! Oh RationalWikians, feel the sting!

On May 6, 2022, the Washington Post reported about the former SCOTUS judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the Roe vs. Wade U.S. Supreme Court ruling: "Ginsburg, who died in 2020, criticized the 7-to-2 decision both before and after she joined the high court. She argued that it would have been better to take a more incremental approach to legalizing abortion, rather than the nationwide ruling in Roe that invalidated dozens of state antiabortion laws. She suggested a ruling protecting abortion rights would have been more durable if it had been based on the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution — in other words, if it had focused on gender equality rather than the right to privacy that the justices highlighted."

Questions: Where does the U.S. Constitution mention gender equality? If it doesn't mention gender equality, then why wasn't Ruther Bader Ginsberg advocating for a constitutional amendment so she could legally rule on such a matter? Ginsberg was a judge. She was not a legislator. There was the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, but it never passed. Phyllis Schlafly was very effective as far as her opposition of the Equal Rights Amendment. Also, do you think that Ruth Bader Ginsberg was right that the so-called right to privacy in the U.S. Constitution was a less than optimal legal foundation for Roe vs. Wade?

Question: RationalWikians, were you able to prevent Roe vs. Wade from being overturned? Is the answer no? On behalf of the late, great Phyllis Schlafly and all social conservatives, I declare victory!

Mr. Leftist, the rich aren't going to bail you out. Get off your butt! And marry before you have sex! Godspeed. P.S. Andy Schlafly's mother knows best.

See: Mr. Leftist, the rich aren't going to bail you out. Get off your butt! And marry before you have sex! Godspeed.

RationalWiki and its web visitor interest in pornography. There are zero reports of the Eagle Forum website attracting individuals who have an interest in pornography

Similarweb.com on RationalWiki's audience interest

RationalWiki.org is a politically left leaning website that skews towards atheism/agnosticism in terms of its worldview.

The editors of the website RationalWiki try to portray the website as a thinking person's wiki where the editors carefully analyze various matters.

But SimilarWeb.com data shows a significant portion of RationalWiki's web audience is interested in "adult" material as can be seen by the "adult" audience interests in the above graphic. You know what they say RationalWikians, "Birds of feather, flock together."

Atheists have played a significant role in both the production and consumption of pornographic material (See: Atheism and pornography and Atheism and child pornography).

Many feminists contend that pornography exploits women.[10] RationalWiki is a pro-feminism website.[11]

Similarweb.com on Eagle Forum's website audience interest. The Eagle Forum organization was founded by Phyllis Schlafly

The Eagle Forum website was founded by the organization which Phyllis Schlafly - namely the Eagle Forum nonprofit organization.

SimilarWeb.com data shows a significant portion of Eagle Forum's web audience is interested in the topics of friends and community.

Question for RationalWikians: What is more psychologically healthy for individuals and widely considered more virtuous, being interested in friends and community or being interested in pornography?

RationalWiki and its user who was into pedophilia. Phyllis Schlafly would think this is shameful and scandalous gentlemen!

See also: RationalWiki, pornography and pedophilia and Atheism and child pornography and Atheism, pederasty and NAMBLA

The above graphic is a screenshot taken from RationalWiki User: Shouniaisha user page taken on November 26, 2015. Notice that the person describes themselves as a pedophile.

RationalWikians, shame! Perhaps if your website attracted less people interested in pornography, you wouldn't have had a user page on your website where the user stated his interest is pedophilia!

Gentlemen, go the Wikipedia's Phyllis Schlafly Wikipedia page. Then go the Wikipedia page for Eagle Forum and look at the history of the organization under Phyllis Schlafly. What you will notice is a complete absence of any association with pedophilia. If only RationalWikians could claim the same!

Phyllis Schlafly vs. RationalWikians: Education and financial support of their respective nonprofit organizations

Schlafly with Ronald Reagan.

Please notice how well-dressed Ronald Reagan and his male colleagues are. Reagan is wearing a wonderfully tailored suit that is quite stylish for its day.

Unlike Ronald Reagan who owned a splendid ranch, RationalWikians are broke! For details on how broke RationalWikians are, please read the material below.

According to Wikipedia, a website founded by an atheist and agnostic:

[Phyllis] Schlafly started college early and worked as a model for a time. She received a scholarship to Maryville College, but after one year, transferred to Washington University in St. Louis. In 1944, she graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a Bachelor of Arts. In 1945, she received a Master of Arts degree in government from Radcliffe College (for which the then all-male Harvard University was a coordinate institution). In Strike From Space (1965), Schlafly observed that during World War II, she worked as "a ballistics gunner and technician at the largest ammunition plant in the world". She earned a Juris Doctor degree from the Washington University in St. Louis School of Law in 1978."[12]

On May 29, 2022, one of the founders of the RationalWiki website indicated "Currently the donations we get are sparse... We have not done a donation drive in a long time and have not been self-supporting for over a year....".[13] A global fundraising scam, Rationalwiki has not complied with non-profit reporting requirements for 7 consecutive years.[14] See also: Atheism and charity and Atheist organizations and fundraising and Atheist fundraising vs. religious fundraising

On the other hand, unfortunately for them, many RationalWikians appear to have picked one of the worst college majors. That is why so many RationalWikians are so broke and struggle to finance the RationalMedia Foundation.

Wikipedia's article on Phyllis Schlafly makes no mention of her struggling financially or her nonprofit organization, the Eagle Forum organization, financially struggling during her lifetime. Is it possible that RationalWikians never read Conservapedia's essay The Invisible Hand of Marriage. Unlike many RationalWikians, Mrs. Schlafly married well and was well-supported by her loving spouse!

Atheism and marriage

Theodore Beale declared that according to the 2001 American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) "more than half of all atheists and agnostics don’t get married."[15]

See also: Atheism and marriage and Atheist marriages and Atheism and divorce

Christian apologist Michael Caputo wrote: "Recently the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life has published its mammoth study on Religion in America based on 35,000 interviews... According to the Pew Forum a whopping 37% of atheists never marry as opposed to 19% of the American population, 17% of Protestants and 17% of Catholics."[16]

Theodore Beale declared that according to the 2001 American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) "more than half of all atheists and agnostics don’t get married."[17]

The fertility rate is significantly lower in the atheist population (see: Atheism and fertility rates).

Furthermore, the Christian apologist Ken Ammi wrote in his atheism article at Creation Ministries International:

“According to Barna, ‘Forty-two percent of adults who associate with a faith other than Christianity had co-habited, while atheists were the most likely to do so (51%).

“It is critical to stress that it is a well known fact that cohabiters experience a very high number of ‘breakups’ before getting married. ‘Millions of people … believe that cohabitation is a prelude to marriage. And for many, it is. However, Smock reports that 45% of cohabitations break up with no marriage. Another 10% continue cohabiting.’

“Barna did not include this enlightening fact in his research. Thus, if 21% of atheists divorce after marriage, and 45 % break up once or more before marriage, what we have is the astounding rate of about 66% of atheist couples experiencing ‘at least’ one break up. If, however, the number is 37%, then we have a shocking figure of 82% …

“What needs mentioning is the fact that many atheists do not cohabit as a prelude to marriage. They in fact see cohabitation as ‘equivalent’ to any marriage relationship … These break ups were not included in the Barna research …

“The appellation ‘Christian’ a Christian does not make. There are great numbers of people in this world who call themselves ‘Christians’ but have never internalized the teachings of Jesus Christ." … [18]

Unlike RationalWikians, Phyllis Schlafly never gossipped!

LeftyGreenMario (LGM) is a RationalWiki moderator.

LeftyGreenMario is not sure if she has bad judgment. She feels as if she is a bad person due to her gossiping about other RationalWikians at the RationalWiki Discord server.

The above screenshot was taken from the RationalWiki Discord server.

Conservapedia was founded by Andy Schlafly whose mother was Phyllis Schlafly.

Conservapedia's resource How Conservapedia Differs from Wikipedia states: "Wikipedia is part of the hearsay society, drawing no distinction between what is factual and what is unreliable hearsay. We at Conservapedia separate the wheat from the chaff. We do not allow gossip, just as a real encyclopedia avoids it."

Like mother, like son! Mrs. Schlafly was not a gossiper. Wikipedia's article on Phyllis Schlafly has zero mentions of her gossiping. Why? Because she did not gossip. That's why!

The Gossipgate scandal at RationalWiki

LeftyGreenMario (LGM) is a lady RationalWiki (RW) moderator and administrator. She is also a RationalWiki Foundation trustee. RationalWiki.org is a politically left-leaning wiki website that skews towards atheism/agnosticism in terms of its worldview. LeftyGreenMario became a RationalWiki moderator in January of 2018.[19]

LeftyGreenMario is a feminist, self-described asexual, atheist, evolutionist, proponent of abortion, environmentalist and a video game enthusiast.[20] LeftyGreenMario is a student of Herbert Marcuse's partisan tolerance, and almost singlehandedly destroyed what little bit of balance and tolerance of diverse viewpoints existed in the Rationalwiki community since its founding in 2007. Her asexual outlook on life has been transformed into feelings of hostility and meanspiritedness toward other human beings. As a Trustee of the RationalMedia Foundation,[21] LeftyGreenMario has led the project down the road of leftist intolerance. Many longtime contributors abandoned the project after her rise as a central figure. See also: RationalWiki and web traffic and LeafyGreenMario and Google referral traffic

LeftyGreenMario is not sure if she has bad judgment (see screenshot graphic to the right). She feels as if she is a bad person due to her gossiping about other RationalWikians at the RationalWiki Discord server.

She was threatened with impeachment by a former RationalWiki Moderator and current Administrator of RationalWiki, who goes by the username Ace McWicked, due to her involvement in the RationalWiki GossipGate scandal (She gossiped about Ace McWicked). She apologized to Ace McWicked to turn things around, to no effect (see screenshot graphic to the right).

How Phyllis Schlafly would view present-day RationalWikians

See also: Atheist hypocrisy and RationalMedia Foundation board of trustees and the lack of Black representation and RationalWiki and web traffic and Comrade RationalWikian, can you spare a dime?

Phyllis Schlafly would probably view present-day RationalWikians as a "bunch of losers".

If only RationalWikians were as effective at rallying women as well as Phyllis Schlafly did, then they would not have a dying wiki that is largely made up of male users that struggles to fund itself.

For more information, please see: RationalWiki and web traffic and Comrade RationalWikian, can you spare a dime?

Wikipedia's article on Phyllis Schlafly states:

At the May 16, 2008, commencement ceremony, Schlafly was awarded an honorary degree as a Doctor of Humane Letters, yet faculty and students protested to rescind Schlafly's honorary degree. During the ceremony, hundreds of the 14,000 people in attendance, including one-third of the graduating class and some faculty, silently stood and turned their backs to Schlafly in protest. In the days before the commencement there were protests regarding the awarding of an honorary degree; Schlafly described the protesters as "a bunch of losers". Moreover, after the ceremony, Schlafly said that the protesters were "juvenile" and "I'm not sure they're mature enough to graduate."[22]

RationalWikians, given your: hypocrisy in not living up to your own SJW ideals by failing to have a Black board member on the RationalMedia Foundation; your failing to effectively rally women as successfully as she did (The big majority of your website's users are male) and your struggle to fund the RationalWiki Foundation and website, as much as I hate to say it, Phyllis Schlafly would probably consider RationalWikians to be a "bunch of losers".

For more information, please see: Atheist hypocrisy and RationalMedia Foundation board of trustees and the lack of Black representation and RationalWiki and web traffic and Comrade RationalWikian, can you spare a dime?

Christianity is experiencing explosive growth in Africa. See: Religion and Africa

The RationalMedia Foundation's board of trustees does not have a single Black board member.

For more information, please see: RationalMedia Foundation board of trustees and the lack of Black representation
"According to the leading search engine optimization tool SEMRush, RationalWiki's Google referral traffic went down 9,622 monthly visits from May of 2022 to June of 2022. It did not go up in monthly visits. RationalWikians are a bunch of total losers who run a second-rate wiki." - Donald Trump

The difference between Andrew Schlafly and RationalWikians

Do you know the difference between Andrew Schlafly and RationalWikians?

Andrew Schlafly graduated from Princeton University with a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He is also a magna cum laude graduate from Harvard Law School and was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.[23]

On May 29, 2022, one of the founders of the RationalWiki website indicated "Currently the donations we get are sparse... We have not done a donation drive in a long time and have not been self-supporting for over a year....".[24] A global fundraising scam, Rationalwiki has not complied with non-profit reporting requirements for 7 consecutive years.[25] See also: Atheism and charity and Atheist organizations and fundraising and Atheist fundraising vs. religious fundraising

Unfortunately for many RationalWikians, they picked one of the worst college majors. That is why so many RationalWikians are so broke.

The above picture is Andy Schafly at Columbia University. Notice that Andy is wearing eyeglasses. Many people consider the wearing of eyeglasses to be a sign of intelligence. One thing I can say with complete certainty: Unlike many liberals and leftists, Andy Schlafly was smart enough to not pick one of the worst college majors.
The leader of the Luddites. A luddite is a person opposed to technological change.

On May 29, 2020, the RationalWiki editor GrammarCommie wrote: "Don't blame me, I emphasize...how fallible tech is."[26]

GrammarCommie is a socialist who believes that capitalism failed. He frequently pontificates about economics - despite describing himself as being lower middle-class.

Capitalism didn't fail GrammarCommie. You failed! You modern-day Luddite! Learn how to code like Andy Schlafly did.

As noted above, Andrew Schlafly graduated from Princeton University with a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

For more information, please see: Mr. Leftist, the rich aren't going to bail you out. Get off your butt! And marry before you have sex! Godspeed.
RationalWiki User: AMassiveGay wrote on May 29, 2022: "...reliable technology has doomed us all. thanks a lot, nerds."[27]

Artificial intelligence (AI) will never replace the human brain in its thinking power such as a capacity to love or engage in altruism, but that doesn't mean that it isn't making significant progress. AI innovation is merely hitting some temporary innovation bottlenecks/logjams as far as solving real world problems.

Public commentary by modern-day Luddites is not going to impede AI technological progress.

If RationalWiki's User: AMassiveGay didn't have such weak wrists (which prevents him to code using a keyboard), perhaps he could have studied Computer Science at Princeton University like Andy Schlafly!
The Pascaline, which was also called the Arithmetic Machine, was the first calculator or adding machine to be produced in any quantity and actually used. The Pascaline was designed and built by the French mathematician-philosopher Blaise Pascal.

Pascal was a Catholic - just like Andy Schlafly!
The English mathematician and inventor Charles Babbage, who is credited with having conceived the first automatic digital computer, was a Christian who believed that God was the ultimate programmer.

Unlike Conservapedia, RationalWiki has never ranked in the top 5 search results for the keywords homosexuality, evolution and atheism at a popular search engine that begins with a G.

Many of the luddites at RationalWiki have great difficulty understanding search engine optimization.
When a lot of non-tech brothers try to inform tech brotjers about the future of AI, it will not good in retrospect.

"Yeah, let's take a modern day stroll... Last time checked, we was the runnin' the globe." - User: Conservative quoting the Modern Day song by the rap group Migos in order to taunt the RationalWikian User: Grammarcommie (who is a luddite).

The hip hop artist Talib Kwelli was an atheist during a portion of this teen years, but he became an ex-atheist before he reached 20 years old.[28] See: Atheism and hip hop music and Western atheism and race
