And if you look through it more, particularly the entries on evolution, you will find it terribly funny.

4. boy that really opened my eyes. I thought Jimmy Carter was an ok guy

but now I see how wrong I was. Thanks Dpm12. As a liberal I've just never really tried to learn anything, preferring instead to parrot things other people said, depending on what makes me feel good. After all I care far more about feeling good than intellectual rigor, but you've shown me a better way.

Andrew Schlafly is an idiot and his site pretty much gets everything wrong.

17. Conservapedia is good for hours of laughs.

 

Although, I must admit that it pains me that so many members of my species are so fucking stupid!

The irony here is that Carter may have been our only true, honest to go Christian president.
In the 20th century, anyway...

27. Conservapedia? Biased? The hell you say!

Is truth biased? Is righteousness in the face of moral decay biased? Are a few brave souls standing resolute against a sea of creeping compassio-fascism a form of bias, while all about them the Constitution is perverted to allow mere majorities of voters to thwart the will of Rush God this so-called bias you speak of? Nay! A thousand times nay! Though mountains fall, though buildings crumble, though seas surge to drown the nation in a froth of salt and BP-sludge, Conservapedia will stand on the parapets of freedom and scream "self-made reality!" at the very heavens!

What is truth anyway, indeed, what is freedom itself if it is not the freedom to love Ronald Reagan?

28. Read their entry on dinosaurs

Dinosaurs are animals, often believed to be extinct, that range in size from a few ounces to some of the largest land animals ever to exist. The word dinosaur was coined in 1841 by Richard Owen, from the Greek words for "terrible lizard", and reflected the creatures' large size and fearsome appearance to the early paleontologists.

Creation science asserts that the biblical account, that dinosaurs were created on day 6 of creation approximately 6,000 years ago, along with other land animals, and therefore co-existed with humans, thus debunking the Theory of Evolution and the beliefs of evolutionary scientists about the age and creation of the earth.

Creation science posits that dinosaurs lived in harmony with other animals, (probably including in the Garden of Eden) eating only plants; that pairs of each dinosaur kind were taken onto Noah's Ark during the Great Flood and were preserved from drowning; that many of the fossilized dinosaur bones originated during the mass killing of the Flood; and that possibly some descendants of those dinosaurs taken aboard the Ark are still around today. At least 300 distinct genera of dinosaur have been identified.

Archaeological, fossil, and documentary evidence supports the logical conclusion that dinosaurs co-existed with mankind until at least relatively recent times.

30. They cite themselves as "The Trustworthy Encyclopedia" ...

Yet, they have a page on "liberal claptrap."

I searched for "conservative claptrap" on Wikipedia, and found no such page.
