Conservapedia

I stumbled upon Conservapedia through Ars Technica & Jon Swift’s blog. Conservapedia is an alternative to wikipedia that conservapedia is “pro-Christian" & “pro-American". I originally thought conservapedia is a mock, but indeed the site is serious, and this makes the site even funnier.

Here are some good conservia’s entries:

Gravity: “Some have criticized gravity, reminding us that it is only a theory, and that no scientist has ever seen a graviton or a space curve. Furthermore, experiments done by NASA prove that the Moon is receding (moving further away) from the Earth at a rate of 3.8cm per year, directly contradicting the theory that masses attract one another[1]. Indeed, astronomers can observe that all stars in the universe are moving away from one another. The considerable disagreement between scientists about the theory of gravity suggests that, like evolution, the theory will eventually be replaced with a model which acknowledges God as the source of all things, the Prime Mover, and the only real fundamental force in the universe."

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."

Dinosaur: “… there are a number of lines of evidence that point to dinosaurs and man coexisting. [2] [3] For example, trained scientists have reported seeing a live dinosaur. [4] A thousand people reported seeing a dinosaur-like monster in two sightings around Sayram Lake in Xinjiang according to the Chinese publication, China Today. … the Young Earth Creationists believe, based primarily on Biblical sources, but also drawing on archeological and fossil evidence, that dinosaurs were created on the 6th day of the Creation Week[10], approximately 6,000 years ago; that they lived in the Garden of Eden in harmony with other animals, eating only plants[11]; that pairs of various dinosaur baramins were taken onto Noah’s Ark during the Great Flood and were preserved from drowning[12]; that fossilized dinosaur bones originated during the mass killing of the Flood[13]; and that some descendants of those dinosaurs taken aboard the Ark still roam the earth today[14]."

Theory of Relativity: “Nothing useful has even been built based on the theory of relativity."

Fox news: “Fox News was started in 1996 in response to the other cable news channels which all had obvious liberal biases. Because of this, Rupert Murdoch decided to start a real new channel which would tell the truth. The success of Fox news over every other news channel is because it is fair and balanced. [1] It has many people on it who work to spread truth such as Sean Hannity who is a great American. [2]. Fox News is best because instead of just telling you what to think, they only report the news unbiased and then allow the viewer to decide. [3].

In 2005 the White House selected Tony Snow from Fox News to be the new White House press secretary which was a great honor for Fox because it showed how well it was presenting the real truth instead of the fake liberal version. [4]"

Global warming: “… these scientists are mostly liberal athiests, untroubled by the hubris that man can destroy the Earth which God gave him.[5]"

Holocaust: “The Germans are not to blame for this but the Nazi are. … This is a very touchy subject for the Jews and is not often discussed amongst them."

Sir Issac Newton: “Sir Isaac Newton was one of the inventors of calculus and the propsoed the theory of gravity (It should be noted that gravity, like evolution, is just a theory and has never been proven to be true)."

Bill Clinton: “Bill Clinton managed to serve two terms without botching the prosecution of two wars, manipulating intelligence, engaging in a systematic program of torture, or mishandling the federal response to flooding of a major American city."

Nobel Prize: “The selection process has become political, as it was not given to Ronald Reagan or Pope John Paul II or to anyone who criticizes the theory of evolution. The Nobel Prizes for literature and peace are mostly given to outspoken liberals, such as Jimmy Carter."

Unicorn: “Secular opinion is that they are mythical. However, they are referred to in the Bible nine times,[1] which provides an unimpeachable de facto argument for their once having been in existence. Christian apologists have advanced various arguments that the biblical unicorn was not a fantasy animal. [2][3] … Post-Noachian references[1] 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."

Clearly, conservapedia beats uncyclopedia by a far margin as the leader of anti-wikipedia.

  1. You really should include a link to the piece in my blog:

    http://jonswift.blogspot.com/2007/02/conservapedia.html

    as well as to the Ars Technica article:

    http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070304-conservapedia-hopes-to-fix-wikipedias-liberal-bias.html

    If you don’t know how to insert links, email me and I will be glad to explain how to do it.

  2. That isn’t funny it’s frightening, and for Christians like myself it’s embarrassing as hell.

  3. Yup, I added the links
