It’s the same evidence, we just analyse it differently


The Conservapedia entry on Elevatorgate (the incident, not the troll) is hilarious.  I won’t give too much away because I don’t want to spoil the joy of reading it, but a couple of things stand out right from the start:

1. At no point does the entry actually describe what happened during the incident or what Rebecca said about it in her video.  It calls it “an incident which occurred in an elevator” and that’s all it says.

2. The whole thing was about Richard Dawkins, didn’t you know?  It’s about how Richard Dawkins is a bad man because he’s an atheists and atheists are bad people.

Most of the article is about the negative impact Dawkins has had on his beloved atheism because of Elevatorgate.  Oh, and the global decline of atheism compared to the explosive rise of Christianity occurring as a result, naturally.
