Conservapedia: A Conservative Encyclopedia

by Venomous Kate

There’s a new wiki-based encyclopedia on the web, and this one’s for the Right. Conservapedia was created in response to the perceived bias in Wikipedia:

Conservapedia is a much-needed alternative to Wikipedia, which is increasingly anti-Christian and anti-American. On Wikipedia, many of the dates are provided in the anti-Christian “C.E.” instead of “A.D.”, which Conservapedia uses. Christianity receives no credit for the great advances and discoveries it inspired, such as those of the Renaissance.[…]

Conservapedia is an online resource and meeting place where we favor Christianity and America. Conservapedia has easy-to-use indexes to facilitate review of topics. You will much prefer using Conservapedia compared to Wikipedia if you want concise answers free of “political correctness”.

The project was created by a “large, advanced group” of New Jersey homeschoolers in November 2006 — as if I needed another reason to like it!

  1. It will have the same result as Wikipedia. All the litle onanists living in their moms’ basements editing and reverse-editing.

  2. as if I needed another reason to like it!

    Really, and you want your son to learn this truth about “Genes

    Although the gene is the fundamental unit of heredity, changes in genes (so-called “evolution”) cannot explain the differences between species, which require an Intelligent Designer
    (one among many such examples)

  3. I’ve got no problem reconciling science with the existence of an Intelligent Designer. I do have a problem with those who believe the two are mutually exclusive.

  4. Suffers from a “systematic bias” all its own. Take Conservapedia’s entry on the Theory of Evolution. Biased doesn’t begin to describe it.

    In fact, in order to support its bias, it even quotes a book from 1977!

    Take a look at the Transitional Vertebrate Fossils FAQ for explanations and descriptions of transitional fossil records.

    I find anything that has to CLAIM it isn’t biased, is most definitely the opposite.

    I don’t subscribe to the full Theory of Evolution, but I refuse to close my mind to new discoveries all because it doesn’t fit within a narrow view of the universe.
