"e=mc^2 is liberal conspiracy to justify abortion" conservapedia

Creator of conservapedia: andy schlafly

Recognize the name? See phyllis schlafly on wiki.

See this link for discussion about conservapedia. http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=2302019

About andy from his wiki:

Andrew Schlafly received a B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering and a certificate in Engineering Physics from Princeton University and degree from Harvard Law School with a Juris Doctor. At Harvard, Schlafly was an editor of the Harvard Law Review. Schlafly has worked as an engineer with Bell Labs, Intel, and Johns Hopkins University and an adjunct professor at Seton Hall Law School.

-----

In the DU thread above, andy has decided that the Theory of Relativity is liberal claptrap and a conspiracy used by liberals to justify abortion.

Some liberal politicians have extrapolated the theory of relativity to metaphorically justify their own political agendas. For example, Democratic President Barack Obama helped publish an article by liberal law professor Laurence Tribe to apply the relativistic concept of "curvature of space" to promote a broad legal right to abortion. As of June 2008, over 170 law review articles have cited this liberal application of the theory of relativity to legal arguments. Applications of the theory of relativity to change morality have also been common. Moreover, there is an unmistakable effort to censor or ostracize criticism of relativity.


Imagine andy sitting on a peer review board.

Imagine andy the electrical engineer who worked at Bell Labs writing:

E=mc2 is a meaningless statement in physics that purports to relate light to matter. In fact, no theory has successfully unified the laws governing mass (i.e., gravity) with the laws governing light (i.e., electromagnetism). Simply put, E=mc2 is liberal claptrap.

Biblical Scientific Foreknowledge predicts that a unified theory of all the laws of physics are impossible, because light and matter were created at different times, in different ways, as described in the Book of Genesis.


Can we please NOW STOP giving equal time to lies?!

1. I thought that tying the "Theory of Relativity" with Abortion meant

that you believe a girl's pregnancy was due to having sex with a relative ... (quite possibly, her father) ...

2. Naw, I think that's the theory of the flds.

Don't get me started on that crowd. I'm in a good mood tonight.

If that reference doesn't make sense to you, please google flds and/or warren jeffs. Warning: it's uuuuuuuuuuuuuuugly.

4. fWhy doesn't some man tell that old bat Schafly

To go back to her kitchen and shut the fuck up? While she's shrieking that women shouldn't have any power or say in their lives, she is doing exactly what she doesn't want others to do.

I hate that fucking old harpy.

7. How dare you insult bats and harpies?!

Bats provide bug control and pollination. Harpies provide good fodder (*snort*) for ancient mythologies.

phyllis provides a voice for gangrene spewing from the toxic brain matter of teabagging snake-oil salesmen wrapped in the sacred garment of "religion" worshiping at the altar of hatred.

*sigh*

That was funnier in my head.

14. Hey. Harpies aren't myth. Harpy eagles really exist.

I think we have a couple at the LA Zoo.

I think they are the largest of the eagles, too.

17. Heh. I didn't know that. :)

So, which came first, the Harpy of mythology or the first Harpy eagle egg? Get it? Which came first the chicken or the...

Aw, nevermind. No fun if I have to explain it.



I think I just went from good humor to punch drunk. Hee hee.

6. That isn't even the worst of it! Consider this little treasure

'Generations' radio host Pastor Kevin Swanson said this week on his radio program that “certain doctors and certain scientists” have researched the wombs of women on birth control pills and found “there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb."

Swanson concluded: "And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies," reports RightWingWatch.org (audio below).

Pastor Swanson said: "I’m beginning to get some evidence from certain doctors and certain scientists that have done research on women’s wombs after they’ve gone through the surgery, and they’ve compared the wombs of women who were on the birth control pill to those who were not on the birth control pill."

"And they have found that with women who are on the birth control pill, there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb. They’re just like dead babies. They’re on the inside of the womb. And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies."

It's a good thing he's on the radio. I think his congregation would barely be able to suppress the giggles if he said this crap in front of any woman with even rudimentary reproductive knowledge!

9. I read that earlier tonight on DU. Warpy, a question for you.

I know you've followed this particular crowd as long or longer than I.

When you read the above, were you reminded of the "atrophied uterus" argument against education for girls/women?

It's no matter. I think I just wonder if I'm the only one who makes those types of connections.

11. Oh, yes, and poisoning one's delicate mind with books.

Women were to be kept pure and in a state of nature--you know, ignorant, decorative and powerless--until they married and started to work like mules.

I grew up around people who were born into and spent their formative years in the late Victorian period. I heard every bit of the crapola. Then I ignored it.

The gablers in Texas; liberty u; the r/w "think"tanks; and now, again, coming out of Harvard. Only now, they have fox "news" and the internet.

The cancer grows exponentially.

20. A uterus is a tiny little marble orchard. Who knew??

"Marble orchard" is a Yankee term for graveyard. I heard it from my dad who grew up in NE Ohio.

10. Well, it does start to make clear where some outrageous

"science" is coming from.

These people have been working on the educational systems in the country for at least 40 years. Now we're starting to see the fruits of their labor.

now they're trying to create an entire generation of Christian scientists.

16. I found a group who has been working on just that

since the early 1900s; "christian" and white nationalist.

I'll have to search my links to give you the name. That's just one I've found. The heritage foundation, aei, and others have been busy for 30 or 40 years or so, too.

15. There's some really funny stuff in there. Check out 'greatest conservative songs'

 

http://www.conservapedia.com/Essay:Greatest_Conservative_Songs

The explanations are absolutely priceless:

Bon Jovi, 'Livin' on a Prayer '- Organized labor is harmful to the welfare of workers, who turn to prayer.

Bee Gees, 'Stayin' Alive' - Pro-people and pro-staying alive, and this: "we can try to understand/the New York Times' effect on man."

Fleetwood Mac, 'Don't Stop' - Used by Bill Clinton as his campaign theme song in 1992, but liberals often try to appeal to conservative themes for elections.

18. I'm trying to stick to the funnier stuff...mostly.

But some of what they're writing over there is downright horrifying. I keep thinking people will read it and be as astounded. Then I remember politicians arguing "legitimate rape" based on 14th Century belief systems and global warming deniers and holocaust deniers and the recent reporting of the "christianization" of Texas school books and on and on.

I think I'll stop there. I'm depressing myself and I was getting into a good flow of silly.

19. If this is the kind of thinking

Harvard puts out then they are no better than Liberty University.

This is garbage coated with an icing of intellectual pyrotechnics. It's still garbage.

23. This entire Conservapedia thing is bad news.

Late-night comedians could all be out work once it becomes easy to get all your satire and laughs directly from reading this crapola.

Once again, the middle-men are being squeezed out of relevance!

24. That's why I sometimes take new DUers with a grain of salt when they start throwing an engineer

degree around to sideways justify some right-wing persiflage they are attempting to massage into the narrative here.

Harvard has many little odd pockets of conservative incubator programs too. Film came out last year, Verita$, which was very interesting. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2073702/
