Thanks for the editing on the Big Bang page, but please be a bit more careful with any rewordings. We're trying to make these articles as informative as possible, and that includes covering multiple perspectives on issues like this. To say that one position is absolutely, unquestionably true is difficult in any public debate, as every understanding of the universe has its pluses and minuses. However, if you're interested in this topic, an exlication of young-earth creationism's understanding of the Big Bang would be quite useful. Right now it's a very brief overview (compare it to the evolution article for an example of why I say it's much less specific) Thanks! --John 22:37, 7 March 2007 (EST)

Thank you for the advice. Why does this site exist, though, if not to spread the word of truth? It won't do any good for family values and the American way if we just turn into another Wikipedia, will it? I can't help but notice that somebody has inserted "if you're a moron" into the second to last paragraph, which seems a bit more offensive than the Holy Bible. ATB 23:54, 7 March 2007 (EST)

You've been placing some highly opinionated wordings into our articles recently, particularly the John Kerry article. I'm not a Kerry fan, but it's ridiculous to say that "the will of America" was expressed by Bush's election when he got, like, 52% of the popular vote. 52% is "enough," but it's hardly "everybody." Oh, and please post any replies to my remarks on my talk page. I would have responded to the earlier one but unfortunately Conservapedia doesn't notify me when people reply to my remarks on their own pages. Thanks. --John 22:55, 9 March 2007 (EST)

If Kerry had gotten 52%, would you have gone on Bush's article and said that he was defeated by Kerry, who was supported by "the will of America?" --John 23:03, 9 March 2007 (EST)

The "conservative viewpoint" doesn't mean denying reality by saying that a 52% vote one way is a mandate while a 52% the other way is not even worth considering simply because it didn't happen. There's a diversity of opinion within conservativism that requires some semblance of neutrality, even if it's a conservative version of neutral. --John 14:42, 10 March 2007 (EST)
