Creation science

I see you have reverted my edit in the second sentence without discussion. You appear to have missed the point. I made that particular change because I understand the the 6000 year figure was not necessarily used by all religions. Do Hindus for example agree on that figure? --Horace 19:03, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

I disagree with the point that the entire sentence is making. I don't think that most advocates of creation science believe that the earth is 6,000 years old. I'm not very well-versed on Hindu views. However, as I said in the edit summary, there are other advocates of YEC. I don't think it is correct or fair to single out Christians in that statement. If you're going for specificity, then you should qualify with all 3 Abrahamic religions. Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 19:07, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
You make a valid point. Perhaps the introduction should first of all make some distinction between the creation science views of various religious groups before going on to nominate the 6000 year period for Christians (and whoever else uses it). --Horace 19:11, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
I don't touch the religious articles. I stick to politics and medicine. Your point is valid and well-taken. It's definitely something you should bring up on the talk page. Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 19:14, 21 September 2008 (EDT)


Thanks for the award, but could you double-check the template? My reply to you seems to be rendering inside the blue box no matter what I do. Thanks again for the recognition :-) -Foxtrot 16:45, 26 September 2008 (EDT)


Hello, I'm from the Pittsburgh area as well. WesleySHello! 11:55, 16 December 2008 (EST)

Oh, wow. Good to meet another Burgh Boy! I actually live in Northern WV, but I work in Pittsburgh. I'm about 15 miles west of the city. Which end of the city do you live on? Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 11:57, 16 December 2008 (EST)
I'm southeast, near Monroeville. WesleySHello! 11:59, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Yeah, I'm kind of foreign to that area. I work up by the zoo in Aspinwall, though a good friend of mine lives on the South Side. The only time I ever really make it into the city is for sports games (Pens, Stillers, Pirates). Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 12:02, 16 December 2008 (EST)
And I see you're a Social D fan. Quite the punk scene here in Pittsburgh. I got to see Antiflag when they were here last April up at Mr. Smalls. Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 12:04, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Yes, I live for Social D. There is a pretty decent punk scene here. The Misfits were just in town on Friday, also at Mr. Smalls. Monroeville is just a short trip West on the parkway (I-376) to Pittsburgh. Sporting events are usually my only reason for downtown travel as well, because it is one of the toughest cities to navigate. WesleySHello! 14:21, 16 December 2008 (EST)


Ted didn't make the edit to add User:Human as you stared on his talk page. That edit was made by Sideways. WesleySHello! 13:45, 12 January 2009 (EST)

Thanks, Wesley (Wes?). I made sure to strike out the comment. I feel like a real jerk...looks like I need to be more careful! Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 13:51, 12 January 2009 (EST)
Just happened to catch it. And, yes, Wes is fine. Everyone calls me that! WesleySHello! 14:04, 12 January 2009 (EST)

Please don't

What I have written is accurate despite what you say. Please leave the article on SMON alone. --RickD 15:50, 12 January 2009 (EST)

You have yet to provide evidence that every administration of the drug causes SMON. I concede that it is neurotoxic in high doses, and also concede that it was a mistaken diagnosis. However, not every administration of clioquinol resulted in neuro-degeneterive effects, let alone SMON. SOME did, and I concede that point as well. All the evidence I could find supports that high doses of clioquinol cause SMON; I cannot find evidence that every administration has. Please show your sources for your claim and I will not alter the statement. I'm merely after accuracy and trustworthiness. Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 15:57, 12 January 2009 (EST)

vandal revert

Thank you , I am monitoring from my mobile phone and it would have time consuming to had reverted all those, thanks again. --jpatt

I got a feeling...

..that Pittsburgh is going to get it's sixth Super Bowl win! Go Steelers! WesleySHello! 22:40, 18 January 2009 (EST)

Vending machines

I thought the liberal machine had gotten rid of all the cigarette vending machines, when they started disappearing in the late 80s or early 90s. Nice factoid about there still being some states -- those holdouts die hard, don't they? -Foxtrot 17:41, 11 March 2009 (EDT)

There's still cigarette vending machines in Pennsylvania, as well. Of course they charge an arm and a leg (some as high as $8.00 per pack). WesleySHello! 17:43, 11 March 2009 (EDT)
(EC) Yeah, I was really suprised to still find one, but then I found another one in Ohio! I think it may be illegal to have them in some public places, but I know of at least 5 bars in the tri-state area (WV, PA, and OH) that still have them! --Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 17:44, 11 March 2009 (EDT)
With those keen skills at finding hidden beasts, you should switch careers and start leading safaris. :-) -Foxtrot 17:58, 11 March 2009 (EDT)


Sorry, I didn't realize you'd made a substantial change to the article. I was reverting what the guy before you did. I remedied it and re-entered your section. I'm really sorry for the mix up. ChuckR 19:15, 5 November 2009 (EST)

Oh, no worries man. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't messing up something that you had put a lot of time into, that's all. No apologies necessary! -- Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 19:27, 5 November 2009 (EST)

Malik last quote

Please do not delete that fundamental quote. It is important to understand this horror. --Joaquín Martínez 19:18, 6 November 2009 (EST)

I didn't delete the quote. It's in the paragraph right above where you had it. I italicized it to make it stand out a bit better. I thought it looked awkward having it stand by itself. I wouldn't remove important article content, my friend. That I can assure you. -- Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 19:21, 6 November 2009 (EST)

Action Democratique?

What's the problem--they are a right-of-centre party, at least on the Québecois political spectrum. MichaelHWC 18:21, 9 November 2009 (EST)

According to my research, that's correct. I believe that I took out the claim saying that the Parti Liberal and the Action Democratique were "along" with one another. I took that to mean they shared a voting record, which doesn't seem to be the case. The text that I removed was: "... and is along with the Action Democratique du Québec one of the province's two center/right-wing parties." I'm assuming that you're more privy to Québec politics than I am, so if they do have some sort of affiliation with one another, feel free to reinsert the material; just in a more cohesive manner. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 18:25, 9 November 2009 (EST)
I think the passage in question was meant to indicate that the Liberals and the ADQ represent the center/center-right option, as opposed to the more lest-leaning PQ and Québec Solidaire, not that the two parties worked together in any sense--I'll fix it this evening. MichaelHWC 18:33, 9 November 2009 (EST)
I'll fix it right now, now that I know what it's trying to say! Thanks for clarifying. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 18:35, 9 November 2009 (EST)


Fixed my mistake, seems that I made a bug when I added that field to the template. Good catch! Geoff PlourdeComplain! 22:55, 10 November 2009 (EST)

Feeling "Old As Dirt" ?

Happy birthday! However, if you are feeling "old" can't even imagine the feeling forty will give you! :p --ṬK/Admin/Talk 11:16, 20 November 2009 (EST)

I hope to come to terms with my increasing age by the time I'm 29. That way I'll be able to enjoy my 30th birthday rather than sitting and wondering, "Where did it all go?" Thanks, TK! -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 11:18, 20 November 2009 (EST)

Buddy Holly

Citations much?  :p --ṬK/Admin/Talk 21:03, 6 February 2010 (EST)

The one time I don't put citations in ... consider it done, cap'n. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 11:07, 7 February 2010 (EST)

Students bearing arms

I agree that students certainly shouldn't bring guns or clainsaws into class, but the zero-tolerence rules are way too strict, leaving students vulnerable because we can't even have a glass drink bottle whereas trespassers may have M-16s and grenades. DMorris 21:52, 6 February 2010 (EST)

The zero-tolerance rules are ridiculous, as evidenced by students being drug out in handcuffs for doodling on a desk, being suspended because of a harmless shotgun shell, etc. I just didn't want the article to read like Conservapedia advocated students bringing handguns into school. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 11:05, 7 February 2010 (EST)
Fair enough. Perhaps a better way of putting it would be zero-tolerence policies leave students and staff defenseless and restrict their right to property? DMorris 12:41, 7 February 2010 (EST)
That's perfect, actually! I'll replace it right now if you haven't already. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 13:11, 7 February 2010 (EST)

Kauffman Foundation

Sorry for the delay. Thanks for the tip on the Kauffman Foundation. At the time of your post, I wasn't sure what you meant. I mistakenly thought you meant an Interwiki link. There is some special code you can use to link among wikis. conservative 12:55, 12 March 2010 (EST)
It's obviously too late for most people to benefit, but I did put in the wikilink as per your suggestion. That foundation appears to be a very good foundation at a cursory glance. conservative 12:59, 12 March 2010 (EST)

Intelligent Design

I'm looking for a good writer to help me cover the ID vs. evolution issue. It would have to be someone who understands that Creationism has more to it than "Creation Science" advocacy, such as the 45% of Americans who are Old Earth Creationists.

Can you help with this? --Ed Poor Talk 16:12, 25 March 2010 (EDT)

I'll do whatever I can to help, Ed. I've read a few books pertaining to both subjects, and I have the 1st edition of Of Pandas and People sitting on my desk right now. My availability is a bit erratic as I work rotating shifts, but I'll gladly chip in wherever I can. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 16:16, 25 March 2010 (EDT)

1000th edit

Way to go, I'm impressed.--Jpatt 11:56, 6 April 2010 (EDT)

Thanks, JPatt. Took a bit longer than I would have liked, but hopefully it won't take me that long to get to 2,000. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 12:10, 6 April 2010 (EDT)


Yes, it was created by a vandal and liar. Too pop culture for us. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 22:54, 6 April 2010 (EDT)

10 points to me! I'm glad I could do something constructive before bed. I'm already up past curfew; luckily the wife is (ironically) stuck on a Sex and the City marathon. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 22:56, 6 April 2010 (EDT)
ROFL!! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 23:54, 6 April 2010 (EDT)


Thanks for noticing that format problem....given the person who uploaded it was a parodist and troll, not surprising! I replaced it. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 13:14, 6 June 2010 (EDT)

Doing my few edits for the month; I like to random page-it every once in a while and check for some formatting/vandalism problems. Thanks for uploading the new photo! It's much better than the last one. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 13:24, 6 June 2010 (EDT)


Was this completely necessary? I said 3x that I've discussed it on the talk page and no one can be bothered to reply? Am I missing something? DouglasM 19:49, 8 June 2010 (EDT)

I may have saved you from getting blocked, actually. When an edit is reverted by an administrator ([User:DouglasA]), it is typically common procedure to either (a.) wait for the reverting admin to address your concerns on the article's talk page, or (b.) step away from it for a bit until the necessary parties (i.e. senior admins) have had a chance to address your concerns. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 19:53, 8 June 2010 (EDT)
I'll address your concerns regarding the facts on the article's talk page momentarily. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 19:53, 8 June 2010 (EDT)

Victor Dahdaleh

Hi and thanks for your message. I am the author of the original Wikipedia article and have altered and updated the entry slightly before adding it to Conservapedia. I removed the dead internal links. Richardhughes 11:33, 27 April 2011 (EDT)

But not the categories and {{Persondata}} that isn't used on this wiki. Please see the help index for any questions. If that doesn't suffice, contact an administrator. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 11:37, 27 April 2011 (EDT)
