Without reading this, which I don't think is necessary anyway, it sounds like this is the stuff you hear out of the Westboro Baptist Church.

By the admittedly unreliable tool that is reverse domain analysis, it appears to be run by the same people who run this not-at-all-crazy site. (Canadians, join together to smash the socialist collectivist emblem of the maple leaf!)

Their knowledge of heraldry needs work - the Red Ensign was never Canada's national flag. Before the maple leaf came in in 1965, Canada's flag was the Union Jack.

(I'm arguably full of shit on this point, but since it's arguable I'm going to take the negative side.)

Very true. But the whole idea is to hijack the name, Christ, and impugn Chrisitians. And it evidentally works, as the creator of this thread immediately assigned all sorts of other things to it.

You're welcome. I knew you'd like it.

Looks like Brian Peppers has finally made it to Christopedia. Compare, "Comparison of a Negro and Caucasian male" then versus now.

Given the recent edit history and the fact that the mainpage now has a pretty new flag on it, I'd call that well and truly vandalized.

Nice work, guys!! evilgrin.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

"The skeletal and muscular peculiarities of Negroes' lower limbs have given them considerable success as sprinters, but have left them relative undistinguished as distance runners". Hmmm, can anyone spot the common element regarding these guys? Or these?

I have to admire the line "His only known means of transporting goods was on the top of his hard burry head. For shelter he never progressed beyond the common mud hut, the construction of which a beaver or muskrat is capable." for sheer impossible-to-parody value, though.

Yes. Well, Christopedia has a hard time distinguishing between West Africans (who are indeed the sprinters) and East Africans (the long distance runners), who are athletically entirely different and are physically constructed quite differently. Though they do share somewhat the same skin color, at least as viewed from the perspective of the "pale old things."

I suppose for the extremely stupid, that coloration acts as camo. How the hell DO you tell the dark quarterhorse apart from the dark thoroughbred? wacko.gif

Ah, yes. I used to have a picture of Al Gore on the steps of Westboro Baptist Church, but this is the best I can find right now. Nevertheless, it is true that Gore's 1988 Democratic Presidential bid was run out of the offices of Westboro Baptist Church.

However bad Wikipedia gets, one can always safely assume that Conservapedia will be a couple of steps ahead in the crazyness race.

At the moment, Christopedia's article on the WBC still carries the original WP image reference to "Image:Westboro Baptist Church in New York by David Shankbone.jpg"... laugh.gif

It looks like quite a few of their articles are simply coped from Wikipedia, and they're in the process of rewording them to be more racist, homophobic, xenophobic, etc. This might be a good example of a large-scale GFDL violation-in-progress... hmmm.gif

Well, let's try this direct quote from Wikipedia --

Well, nuclear power plants have been on-line since the 1950's-- longer than most people in the US have been alive. They're certainly more traditional than windfarms and any serious solar power arrays.

This disagreement is an example of Poe's Law in action.

Nice article. Shame it was deleted from WP.

I like how the green triangle does not reach the top of the graph. That is, all forms of expression are observed as serious fundamentalism even before the beholder's fundamentalism reaches infinity. I have to wonder if this is intentional. Or maybe it's all parody and I can't tell the difference. dry.gif

Re: christopedia
I wonder if its because of the stalemate at wikipedia Ireland articles that User:Crispness has gone to christopedia to cure their bias ?

I wish crispness well, but will be surprised if he is not silenced as Sarek did to Domer

These edits were brave - Lets just watch

It's not impossible that this site is insincere. Consider, for example, the recent "Scientology CEO statement." It's a smear, but to those of a certain POV (the common opinion that Scientologists are insane), it seems credible and reaffirms their low opinion of Scientology. It's possible that an anti-Christian could create such a site and spread it among Californian liberals who would be relatively credulous.

That said, I think this site is sincere. It's in the over-the-top Westboro style, and I wouldn't be too surprised if it were a hoax, but I would put even money on sincerity. If they start to tighten editing, it would be further evidence that they're honestly trying to create a racist encyclopedia.

After McCain was nominated as the Republican presidential candidate, there were three presidential debates between Obama and McCain in September and October 2008. During the first debate, McCain questioned whether the young negroid was strong enough on national security, pointing out that Obama had voted against funding for several missile systems. Obama then unzipped his pants, pulled out his penis (measuring over 13 inches in length), calmly slapped McCain across the face with his member, and then responded, "Got all the missile I need RIGHT HERE!" Polls after the debate showed Obama surging.



That didn't happen, because Obama would've won by with 400+ EVs if he did that tongue.gif

As usual, a bunch of right-crackpots object to Wikipedia's "liberal bias".
So they install MediaWiki on a server, and call themselves Christopedia.

Mostly articles copied from WP, with a few exceptions.
Thus, the article about "racial purity".

Funny, the registrar is in the British Virgin Islands.....

Actually, some of them seem to be copied from Uncyclopedia... see the "God" article, for example...
