Hi! Thank for for creating this website.

Financial crisis of 2008

There was just two months work in this article reverted without explanation. The article is 5 years out of date and in need of updating. It is loaded with Prof. Jensen's hope that government Keynsian stimulus's are the solution to the crisis -- which has now been emphatically rejected by both the European Union and the United States through sequestration. Can we get meaningful discussion on any problems, or can the reversion be restored and I can continue, along with my work in Category:Budget terms, Fannie Mae, and other articles related to the crisis. Thank you. OscarO 22:20, 6 March 2013 (EST)


Hello I have seen that only administrators can upload pictures. So can you please uploud a picture of the dictator Alexander Lukashenko? Like this one http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Alexander_Lukashenko_2007.jpg --Alex00 12:34, 11 March 2013 (EDT)

There are limitations on use of that photo, which make it not worth the trouble for the relatively obscure figure.--Andy Schlafly 12:49, 11 March 2013 (EDT)

Arinze won't become pope

I notice to you the post that I have written on the talk page of cardinal Arinze, explaining why he won't become pope at all, I assume that since nobody answered me and you kept uphelding that Arinze will be elected on the main page's head... you didn't read it. --Swordsman 12:52, 13 March 2013 (EDT)

CPAC straw poll results

Mr. Schlafly, your headline for the CPAC straw poll contains the line "...as the older RINOs strike out.", is this meant to imply that you believe that the other candidates under consideration were RINOs? If that's the case, I couldn't help but notice that of the other 22 candidates on the ballot, only 2 appear on our RINO list here at Conservapedia (Chris Christie and Mitch Daniels). Would you like me to add the other names to the list? --DonnyC 19:58, 16 March 2013 (EDT)

No, the headline doesn't mean that every non-winner is a RINO. It means the RINO faction of the party struck out, including critics of Rand Paul and folks like Mitt Romney.--Andy Schlafly 22:03, 16 March 2013 (EDT)

Bullied and banned by liberal sysop for speaking the truth.

On the Steubenville rape case page, I, BenCG, correctly pointed out that the rape case was stalled by local Democrat officials, only to have justice brought by the Republicans at the state level. Apparently I offended the liberal sensibilities of liberal evolutionist and atheist User:Brenden. I can understand dealing with liberal bias and ignorance on Wikipedia. But to have to deal with it on Conservapedia at the behest of liberal sysops is disgusting. Brenden refuses to accept the facts surrounding the Steubenville rape case and, like an atheist, refuses to accept credit given to Republican AG Mike DeWine for his good, Godly work in bringing the perpetrators to justice. BenCG2 14:16, 18 March 2013 (EDT)

BenCG, your edits to the Steubenville rape case were in no way in good faith. I trust anyone with some sense can tell that the entire point of the article was not to complain about politics, but rather to explain the disgusting crime that took place. BenCG, instead of lying and manipulating people, why don't you go do something productive?brenden 00:07, 23 March 2013 (EDT)

Username Change

Hi Andy, would you be able to change my username to DickV so as I conform with the first name, last initial policy ? Cheers. 09:22, 19 March 2013 (EDT)

That's unnecessary at this point - the policy is for users who have not made substantive edits.--Andy Schlafly 09:28, 19 March 2013 (EDT)

Andy, the users who have not made substantive edits are the ones that get burned by the rule! You probably know that Mr. V, along with another of others, are occasionally beaten up for the appearance (emphasis on appearance) of hypocrisy in blocking people over the naming rule while not himself complying with it. He was simply lucky that no one was zealous in applying the rule when he was new. He is making a good-faith effort to fix this appearance of hypocrisy. Please let him do so. SamHB 22:47, 19 March 2013 (EDT)

I must admit I always assumed Vergne was the surname. Still if someone wants to change their name it can do no harm can it? --DamianJohn 22:51, 19 March 2013 (EDT)
So will you change my username please ? Dvergne 23:17, 22 March 2013 (EDT)


Hi Mr. Schlafly,

I am a relatively new user here at Conservapedia, but since I am very familiar with how MediaWiki works, I was able to "adapt" to here easily. I have a few questions about Conservapedia which probably only you could answer.

Thanks, DashP 14:27, 20 March 2013 (EDT)


Dear Mr. Schlafly,

Regarding this edit, may I suggest that you discuss any such reorganization of the article on the talk page first (as did I) before you make it. Also, some people may view marking the edit as "minor" may be misleading. Many thanks, Wschact 15:00, 24 March 2013 (EDT)

Best Wishes to you & yours

May many blessings be yours on this day of remembrance. :-) Taj 02:36, 31 March 2013 (EDT)

Happy Easter from me too --Alex00 08:11, 31 March 2013 (EDT)
Happy Easter, Mr. Schlafly! GregG 09:12, 31 March 2013 (EDT)

Template:Personal remark removed

Dear Mr. Schlafly,

Can you please edit the template to move the [[Category:Templates]] category inside the noinclude element? This way, pages using the template are not categorized as Templates, which is what is happening now. Thanks, GregG 22:16, 31 March 2013 (EDT)

Good suggestion, improved accordingly.--Andy Schlafly 23:05, 31 March 2013 (EDT)


Would you be able to unprotect the april fools day article and talk page ? For some reason User:Conservative decided to protect them both. On a more positive note, I hope your and your family had a happy and reflective Easter. Dvergne 11:45, 1 April 2013 (EDT)

Done per request.--Andy Schlafly 11:52, 1 April 2013 (EDT)
Thankyou for doing that. Added a few more examples. I am currently writing / improving the Thorium article and adding information about thorium reactors. I have a few diagmrams which show the energy and mass loss throughout the process. If I want to get them uploaded here where should I go and what should I do. Cheers Dvergne 12:07, 3 April 2013 (EDT)

Economics lecture six

Dear Mr. Schlafly,

Can you please have a look at Talk:Economics Lecture Six#NBA example? Thanks. GregG 19:33, 1 April 2013 (EDT)

No Nobel Prize was given for relativity

Andrew Schlafly, you have repeatedly stated that no Nobel Prize was given for relativity, Nobel Prizes have been awarded for applying relativity to electromagnetism, etc. So what's your spin (pun intended) on Paul Dirac's award in 1933? --AugustO 09:55, 2 April 2013 (EDT)

Are you talking about Dirac's shared prize with Erwin Schrödinger for quantum mechanics? Quantum mechanics disproves the theory of relativity.--Andy Schlafly 11:27, 2 April 2013 (EDT)
"Quantum mechanics disproves the theory of relativity." And how precisely is that? As an engineer -both by education and profession- I've never heard such. Please proceed to elaborate on your assertion. --DonnyC 13:56, 2 April 2013 (EDT)
Quantum mechanics disproves relativity in several ways, such as the action at a distance that occurs in quantum mechanics despite the theory of relativity insisting that is impossible.--Andy Schlafly 20:39, 2 April 2013 (EDT)

Andrew Schlafly, when you know near to nothing about a subject but nevertheless insist on making general claims like quantum mechanics disproves the theory of relativity, your readers have difficulties to discern whether those are intentional follies (belated April Fool's Day pranks) or unintentional ones (examples of the Dunning-Kruger effect). Heck, I even added links to the article on Paul Dirac which could have helped you!

Yes, Paul Dirac got his prize for his contributions to quantum mechanics - but for reconciling Special Relativity and Quantum Theory!

"The importance of Dirac's work lies essentially in his famous wave equation, which introduced special relativity into Schrödinger's equation. Taking into account the fact that, mathematically speaking, relativity theory and quantum theory are not only distinct from each other, but also oppose each other, Dirac's work could be considered a fruitful reconciliation between the two theories."

As an engineer you are not expected to be well versed on this subject, but if you want to contribute without looking like a know-nothing, you should make yourself familiar with the facts. Keyword: Quantum electrodynamics (QED)

--AugustO 11:29, 3 April 2013 (EDT)

I see that you have changed the claim "To date, a Nobel Prize has never been awarded for Relativity" to "To date, a Nobel Prize has never been awarded for confirming Relativity." I'd argue that the Nobel prize of 1936 for Carl David Anderson is a prize awarded for confirming Relativity, as the existance of the positron is not a consequence of quantum mechanics per se, but of Dirac's fusion of quantum mechanics and special relativity (QED). --AugustO 13:06, 10 April 2013 (EDT)

Grammar error on MPR

Dear Mr. Schlafly,

(This is cross-posted from User:Conservative/mail)

On MPR, we have the sentence "Obama Is [sic] spending $100 million dollars [sic] to try to undue [sic] God's confusion of language among other things." Not only is "Is" incorrectly capitalized, there is also a redundant use of the dollar sign and the word "dollars", and "undue" is not a verb. I have no idea what is meant by this prominent sentence.

Can you please fix this? Thanks, GregG 08:21, 3 April 2013 (EDT)

Excellent suggestions, Greg. Corrected now.--Andy Schlafly 08:57, 3 April 2013 (EDT)


Hello can you please expand the Template:Liberalism with Corruption and animal rights? --Alex00 10:43, 3 April 2013 (EDT)


Dear Mr. Schlafly: I do not understand the edit that you just made to the E=mc2 article. Is your concern the placement of the extended discussion in the lead paragraph rather than a separate section, or did you disagree with the sourced statements about conservative views on the civilian use of nuclear energy to generate electricity? Thanks, Wschact 09:37, 5 April 2013 (EDT)

The clearer, more informative introduction is preferred. Also, E=mc2 is not related to nuclear energy.--Andy Schlafly 10:11, 5 April 2013 (EDT)
Andrew Schlafly, what's your theory from where the energy of nuclear fusion or fission does come? --AugustO 05:51, 6 April 2013 (EDT)
I think we have a very polite but important difference of views here. As explained in E=mc2, the equatiion deals with energy and mass, it has no specific applicability to "light" per se. The equation was used to engineer both the A-bombs and the H-bombs as well as to predict the amount of energy released in all 109 nuclear reactors that currently generate electricity in the US. Of course, there are many more such reactors in other countries. the US Navy (and other countries) operate submarines powered by nuclear reactors. There are also small radiation sources powering various satellites in orbit. Assuming that E=mc2 were false "liberal claptrap", all of these would be designed and engineered by people who have no idea of how much energy will be released within them. This lack of scientific foundation for the nuclear engineering field would have profound implications for everyday life. Could you please direct me to a reliable source outside of Conservapedia that supports the other view? Many thanks, Wschact 08:06, 6 April 2013 (EDT)
Engineers are not even taught the liberal claptrap "E=mc2", and for good reason. The science fiction equation has nothing to do with anything in engineering.--Andy Schlafly 10:10, 6 April 2013 (EDT)
Agree! --Joaquín Martínez 10:54, 6 April 2013 (EDT)
Do we have any references to support the idea that E=mc2 contradicts the Book of Genesis? Do we have any references to support the idea that E=mc2 relates "light" to anything? Most nuclear engineering courses cover the physics and E=mc2. Thanks, Wschact 23:13, 6 April 2013 (EDT)

Glad you liked my ideas on upgrading the atheism, evolution and homosexuality articles

Glad you liked my ideas on upgrading the atheism, evolution and homosexuality articles. I will be implementing this in the next 30-90 days. This could certainly enhance their prominence on the internet.

Also, a reminder about reading the articles by the person who wants to help upgrade our collection of abortion articles. If you could read his articles, then we could beef up the Conservapedia Pro-life Project. Conservative 06:52, 6 April 2013 (EDT)

Reporting Vandals

Sorry to bother you but I just wanted to say thanks for blocking/deleting User:JohnSS I was reverting his vandalism as fast as I could while trying to figure out the proper way to report him to someone with blocking power. For future reference, what is the best way to go about that? Thanks, Fnarrow 17:46, 6 April 2013 (EDT)

You could always post a comment here, as you just did.--Andy Schlafly 17:55, 6 April 2013 (EDT)

Sounds good, there's another one on a rampage right now: user:Cocacolatype Fnarrow 10:17, 7 April 2013 (EDT)

A little help

I was reviewing the news when I discovered that Senator McConnell's office was bugged. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/sen-mitch-mcconnell-bugged-strategizing-ashley-judd/story?id=18914051#.UWVSpytvvuc What I found interesting was how the MSN was spinning the story. You may remember that James O'Keefe was loudly shouted down by the MSN for supposedly bugging another Senator's office in 2010. Yet, there is no outrage here. Instead, the story is spun to protect "poor ol' Ashley Judd". I think this is a valuable point to be added to Conservapedia. My question is where? It seems to have linkages to Liberal Double Standards, Hollywood Values, Media Bullying, and Liberal Deceit but I'm having a hard time distilling the story in a pity way. Any suggestions? Thanks, WilliamWB 07:58, 10 April 2013 (EDT)

User:GregG/Other RSS

Can you please restore this page that was deleted by User:Conservative without explanation (and in violation of Conservapedia:Guidelines#Civility)? Thanks, GregG 23:10, 10 April 2013 (EDT)

What pages does the "Other RSS" capture?--Andy Schlafly 18:02, 11 April 2013 (EDT)
You can have a look at the deleted revisions. They contained copies of (if I recall correctly) content from User:Conservative/FYI, User:Conservative/Gentlemen FYI and another page in User:Conservatives userspace that I can't remember at the moment.
By the way, I just notices that you responded to my early voting and voter ID page in January. Thank you for your helpful suggestions, I will consider making changes to the page (especially in light of Virginia's and Arkansas's tightened voter ID laws and North Carolina's voter ID bill). GregG 21:16, 11 April 2013 (EDT)

Possible bug (non-urgent, just odd)

I've been working on adding links to pages on the Dead-end page list here: http://conservapedia.com/Special:DeadendPages and the current top entry (in alphabetical order) is simply a piece of text rather than a link. It says "28_U.S.C._�_1746" which as far as I can tell is a reference to 28 U.S.C. § 1746 but that is not a Dead-end page. I assume it is the special character (§) which is somehow causing the error. Just thought I'd bring this to your attention. Thank you for your time, Fnarrow 17:57, 11 April 2013 (EDT)

Great catch. I'll try to think of some way to fix that problem. But thanks in part to your edits, there are less than 700 dead-end pages now!--Andy Schlafly 18:00, 11 April 2013 (EDT)

No problem, I'm still working my way through them. Fnarrow 18:04, 11 April 2013 (EDT)

Found another one... a page about the chain of stores A&P is impossible to access... at least it is to me. I tried everything I can think of and always land on the page for A. Sorry to bother you again, Fnarrow 18:22, 11 April 2013 (EDT)\


I've had to revert darkbludd's extensive vandalism several times i wish there was a button that would send an alert to an online mod, to examine his activity to see if it merit's either a talking to or a banning. Plus u guys are awesome with a simple undo option :)
