in defence of wikipedia...
Wikipedia is set up to inform people with the best possible facts and figures in all spheres of human endeavours... In contrast, the Conservapedia appears to have been set up as a rabid Christian organisation to counteract Wikipedia... The Christian religion demands love, compassion, turning the other cheek and being kind... Nothing of the sort is shown in this complete rubbish Conservapedia. This is what this half-footed pedestrian rotten pedia has to say about Wikipedia:
Wikipedia on polyamory
For example, the current Wikipedia article on atheism is very flattering to atheism. As of June 14, 2012 the Wikipedia atheism article does not explicitly mention the tens of millions who died under atheist communist regimes although it does allude to it. Dr. R. J. Rummel, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Hawaii, is the scholar who first coined the term democide (death by government). Dr. R. J. Rummel's mid estimate regarding the loss of life due to communism is that communism caused the death of approximately 110,286,000 people between 1917 and 1987. In addition, as of June 14, 2012, Wikipedia had no article on militant atheism and deleted its article written on militant atheism.
As of June 14, 2012 Wikipedia had this flattering description of polyamory:
Polyamory, often abbreviated as poly, is often described as consensual, ethical, or responsible non-monogamy. The word is sometimes used in a broader sense to refer to sexual or romantic relationships that are not sexually exclusive, though there is disagreement on how broadly it applies; an emphasis on ethics, honesty, and transparency all around is widely regarded as the crucial defining characteristic.
I guess that since the days of sheep and donkeys, nothing has changed in the mind of the Constupidia, nothing has changed. Planes and genetics are illusions of scientific tricks.
But then I guess, these people don't read the bible — they only refer to it while they are in glorious golden robes and silly hats. Should they bother looking at it, they would find some interesting passages about polygamy and concubines (polyamory)... None more so that in regard to King David, who features prominently as a good guy in this rotten book, and glorified by religious scholars:
David was probably the greatest lover in the Old Testament. As a man after God's own heart, he was the greatest responder to the Love of God. He was very handsome. He had "beautiful eyes and a handsome appearance" (1 Samuel 16:12). The Hebrew word for David is dw!D*, from the root which means delight from love, or lover. The first letter of his name is the pictorial for the point of a female breast. The root, dwD) (dodh), meaning beloved or love delights, has two of these letters.
David's wives, except for Mikal, are listed in 1 Chronicles 3:1-5. These women, along with their meanings, are listed in the table. Each wife was a test for David in the development of the Intimacy Room of the Edification Complex of the Soul. Bear in mind, that David had the Enduement of the Holy Spirit, but he did not have the Filling of the Holy Spirit nor the power of the Spiritual Life of believers in the Church Age. After each test was passed, David was promoted with another wife. After his victory over Goliath, he received his first wife. During his flight from Saul, he picked up two more, 'Achino`am and Abigail. While he was King in Hebron, he picked up four more; and when he was King in Jerusalem, he picked up the eighth...
Of course the bible also mentions King David's concubines (polyamory)...
