  The Joy of Conservapedia

Oh, this is going to be a hoot. Seems that Phyllis Schlafly's even-loonier son Andrew has finally found a solution to the rampant liberal bias of reality Wikipedia. Introducing... Conservapedia! It's an encyclopedia of know-nothingism, Godly and patriotic:
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. Read a list of many Examples of Bias in Wikipedia.

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".
While I presume that there are more than a few conservatives who just find the damn thing embarassing, that's not going to stop us from having a little fun with it.

Unfortunately, the poor site's servers are not holding up well under all the traffic, so a little patience is required if you want to nose around. Let's look at a few highlights, though. I'll try to keep them concise and free of "political correctness."

First stop: Conservative. Here is the entirety of the entry:
Of or relating to Conservatism.

Pete Seeger, once accused of being a communist, countered “I say I’m more conservative than Goldwater. He just wanted to turn the clock back to when there was no income tax. I want to turn the clock back to when people lived in small villages and took care of each other.”

Well, this is perplexing. Pete Seeger?

I know these guys are new and all, but one would think that Conservapedia would have more to offer on the subject of conservatism than a terse little tautology embellished only by a mystifying reference to a communist folk singer.

Well, they say you can define people by their enemies, right?

A liberal in the early 1800s in Europe was one who favored more powerful elected assemblies. The term was common in France shortly after the French Revolution. Modern liberals are treasonous [1] and generally hate America [2].
Concise indeed! I'm pleased to see that Conservapedia's entries include sourcing - though disappointed to find that neither footnote actually leads anywhere.

In fact, none of this is leading anywhere. Let's try again - this time starting at the top.
Fictional Characters (Redirected from God)

God is pretty popular, but judging by God's blog, and several thousand years of human history, He's kind of a dick.

John Galt is generally a bit less popular, but he's got more sex appeal.
I have to admit, these conservatives are really throwing me for a loop, here. John Galt? Who's that?

It's beginning to appear that Andy could use some help with this project, and evidently that help isn't going to come from God. Where else can he turn? Mom?
There is no page titled "Phyllis Schlafly". You can create this page.

Nothingness! It's enough to drive a man to atheism!
Atheism is the disbelief in the existence of any supernatural deity. This disbelief can take a number of forms, such as the assertion that deities do not exist, or the absence of any belief in any deity.

Stalin and Richard Dawkins are prominent atheists. Dawkins wrote a book, called "The God Delusion". Stalin is now dead, having killed millions of people in the name of Marxis-Leninism (which is predicated on atheism). [Take that Dawkins! How many people have you killed? What? All you did was write a book, you pansy? - ed.]

Atheist morality
Viewed as a simple philosophical framework of "no god exists", atheism can provide no logical basis for any moral standard. Some atheists reject normal social conventions and live their lives according to the rule that "anything goes". Many feel this has led to a large rise in crime[1], drug use, pre-marital sex, teenage pregnancy,[2] pedophilia[3] and bestiality.
Thus does Conservapedia lead one way: downhill, and fast.

I am sorry--but how could you have possibly missed this gem on the Bible?

The Bible is the collection of canonical religious texts in Christianity. Most Christians believe these men were under Divine Inspiration, and/or that the Bible is God's infallible Word to men. Exactly what is included in the Bible is a matter of some dispute. In particular, certain books counted as part of the Bible by the Roman Catholic Church are regarded as non-canonical by many Protestants and vice-versa. Accordingly, it is impossible to be certain which books of the Bible are truly canonical. However, it is certain that those books that are canonical, whichever they may be, are Divinely inspired and infallible.
