Perhaps that coffee was a bit strong.

It’s five in the morning and I am unable to sleep. It’s possible that the evening coffee I had was a bt strong. It is also possible that I woke up at eleven today.

I think I’ll go out for a walk soon. Perhaps that will help. The crows have started crowing. Surprisingly the street lights are still on. They’re supposed to switch off at five. I guess they’re confused by the light streaming from my window.

It’s not like I haven’t stayed up this late before. There have been many such occasions. Once I stayed up because I was watching all the episodes of Friends that I had on DVD.

Friends reminds me of an episode of Mastermind India where one of the contestants chose some seasons of Friends as her subject for the first round. She did fairly well. My favorite contestant was the man who chose The Adventures of Asterix as his subject. He did an excellent job, scoring 31 in the first round. I did better, scoring 32. I was at home unfortunately.

I wonder why they canceled Mastermind India. It was a brilliant show. It was also a lot of fun. To hell with all these modern quiz shows with their astounding amounts of prize money. Bring back Mastermind India

Psst… I wonder if I’m developing Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I have started using American English, just to avoid those irritating red squiggles. I must change the language settings to English(UK). I also wrote Obsessive Compulsive Disorder because WordPress was putting a red squiggle under OCD. I just used OCD. I don’t have it. Yeah!

They have a point.

I was reading the Conservapedia articles on stuff like Atheism, God, Jesus Christ,Examples of Bias in Wikipedia and The Theory of Evolution.

Mainly it’s what you’d expect from an Americentric socially conservative and Conservative Christian point of view. Their theories are full of shit. They only show studies which support their view. And of course, lots of self-righteous judgement.To quote an article

The is considerable amount of scientific evidence that suggest that theism is more conducive to mental and physical health than atheism.

It’s actually a lot of crap. Read the articles if you want to laugh.

Although what’s scary is that unlike Uncyclopedia, which is pure satire, these people are serious about what they write. They actually believe in all of this. I don’t really have a problem with that, since that’s their belief system. But it’s sad how they refuse to accept other points-of-view. Can’t see much progress if everybody remains so close-minded.

Also some of their articles state theories that are well, not proven. In their article on abortion they state that

The vast majority of scientific studies have shown that abortion causes an increase in breast cancer, including 16 out of 17 statistically significant studies. Studies showing that abortion increases breast cancer predate the political controversy.It is undisputed that childbirth protects against breast cancer, and thus early termination of pregnancy must increase the risk of cancer for the mother compared to carrying that same pregnancy to birth. Yet the abortion industry conceals this increased risk, just as the tobacco industry concealed its cancer risk for decades.

I wonder how they decided how statistically significant a study was. Also I wonder if they took other factors into account. In the article I couldn’t find anything that said so.

And the article on Gender Differences states that

Gender differences between men and women have been known since antiquity. Man are more masculine (manly), and women are more feminine. Not only are their physical bodies different, but there are significant character differences as well. This makes sense, because God made men and women “in his image” (Genesis 1:27) so as to reflect his divine nature. (Romans 1:20)

.

Oh and did you know that Homosexual have an agenda? Yes, according to this article they did.

I don’t have anything against the site. After all, no one’s forcing me to read anything on it. In fact there’s nothing wrong with it.

Yet, it just doesn’t feel right. Reading it makes no sense. Trying to understand why anyone would write anything that only states a biased point of view is hard. This is especially ironic since it was formed because they claimed Wikipedia was biased. 🙄

Oh well. There’s always Uncyclopedia.
