So by giving it an inherently partisan name, you believe you can make people believe that it's \"100% free of bias, spin and political correctness\"?

From the mind of Sean Hannity...

This is a blatant ripoff of Wikiality.com -- the most Pro-American and anti-spin encyclopedia on the internets.

Conservapedia is the funniest thing to hit the internet in a long time.
2/28/2007 7:26:08 PM
So basically, it's a propaganda machine like FOX News?
Sigh. First religious schools, then museums, then news channels, then museums, then encyclopedias. Anything to avoid seeing the truth, eh?
Where else can you find an accurate reference for all of the world's most interesting issues, and be sure that the articles are 100% free of bias, spin and political correctness.

Jezebel's Evil Sister
This should be good for a few laughs - and endless quotes for FSTDT.
2/28/2007 8:00:57 PM
Hey! You could call it Stupedia!
2/28/2007 8:07:40 PM
So it's kind of like Wikipedia, except with even more bullshit? Sounds like fun.
2/28/2007 8:10:54 PM
Listen, swizzlestick, I'm going to need you to look up \"bias\" in an actual reference book, and then come back.
2/28/2007 8:25:57 PM
Good one, BurntBush.
I can hardly wait to read the articles on \"bias,\" \"spin,\" and \"political correctness.\"
Anyway, I thought that one of the big complaints about Wikipedia was its pro-American bias.
2/28/2007 8:35:18 PM
Free of bias my fucking ass, the name itself shows bias.

Home schooling is about to take a step down.
Maybe we should submit an onion article and see if they fall for it.

Conservapedia is a non-starter. It's already being rediculed across the internet. I can't wait for Stephen Colbert to do an exposé on it.
I know of people who have been banned because of adding facts to it.
2/28/2007 8:44:55 PM
Those bastards banned my account for trying to debate with them!
Quizzlestick, Wikipedia is unbiased. It gives all the facts, not just the ones you agree with. If credible scientists have termed ID 'junk science' and Kent Hovind-like \"scientists\" are the only ones who support it, it'll say that.
If you want to find out about Intelligent Design, you can read Wikipedia and find out all you want about it. However, you may not like all the facts you read.
EDIT: I mean OE, not Conservapedia banned me.
2/28/2007 9:43:00 PM
Yes, it´s blowing Wikipedia just as ID is getting out wherever they try to hit the jackpot. Now they´re going to say that wikipedia is a religion.

I found an encyclopedia for them:
After the page finally loaded I found this:
Christianity receives no credit for the great advances and discoveries it inspired, such as those of the Renaissance. Read a list of many Examples of Bias in Wikipedia.
WTF? Great advances caused by the Church? If I were a teacher or professor, I would fail any student for the whole course if they cited this rubbish (l.o.l.).
2/28/2007 10:04:00 PM
OK if I submit an article or two?
2/28/2007 10:14:53 PM
Cat of Many Faces
he forgot 75% free of facts

Other classic entries in Conservapedia include but not limited to:
Moon: Our solar system is one of the few that has only one sun. Only one sun and only one moon: this uniqueness may reflect the existence of only one God.
Charles Darwin: However, this theory (evolution) is promulgated by extremely biased groups not recognized as real science, or, truly, as advanced critical thought.
Spanish-American War: America, being a Christian nation, won, while Spain, being a Catholic country, lost.
Faith: Jesus was unique in preaching the significance of faith and it is exclusive to Christianity.
Kangaroo: Their legs are strong and powerful, designed by God for leaping.
Kangaroo: Like all modern animals, modern kangaroos originated in the Middle East and are the descendants of the two founding members of the modern kangaroo baramin* that were taken aboard Noah's Ark prior to the Great Flood.
Kangaroo: (on migrating to Australia from the Middle East) they rafted on mats of vegetation torn up by the receding flood waters
Unicorn: Secular opinion is that they are mythical. However, they are referred to in the Bible nine times, which provides an unimpeachable de facto argument for their once having been in existence.
Unicorn: a growing number of Creation researchers are theorizing that the unicorn was actually a member of the ceratopsian baramin*.
Unicorn: Post-Noachian references to unicorns have led some researchers to argue that unicorns are still alive today. At the very least, it is likely that they were taken aboard the Ark prior to the Great Flood.
Theory of Relativity: Relativity has generated a huge following by advocates of moral relativism
*baramin is a made up word based on the hebrew language
Conservapedia is certainly unbiased by facts!

So it's a website only fundies can submit to, as opposed to wikipedia which is completly open. Oh mean I can't wait to see the shit being written there.

1. Everything you post must be true and verifiable.
2. Always cite and give credit to your sources, even if in the public domain.
3. Edits/new pages must be family-friendly, clean, concise, and without gossip or foul language.
4. When referencing dates based on the approximate birth of Jesus, give appropriate credit for the basis of the date (B.C. or A.D.). \"BCE\" and \"CE\" are unacceptable substitutes because they deny the historical basis.
5. As much as is possible, American spelling of words must be used.
6. Do not post personal opinion on an encyclopedia entry. Opinions can be posted on Talk:pages or on debate or discussion pages.
Guess they'll not be allowing anything then...
:eta: I checked the entry for CE, then checked their index... You have to love the way they note the dates with AD and CE.

Oh, I just love this one from an entry on the United States:
The USA is rightly considered by its patriotic citizens to be the best country in the world. Previously such beliefs (also known as Manifest destiny) were held by citizens of former superpowers, such as the Roman Empire, the Soviet Union and the Third Reich).
Man, comparing the patriotism of the United States to that of a failed dictatorship, a failed communist country, and a failed attempt at becoming a world-wide empire. Mmm...

If you're using Wikipedia as a teaching reference, you ought not to be homeschooling your kids.

Don't you mean GOPedia?
