Honestly, this is one thing that truly, legitimately, gets me frustrated and annoyed. I know it's obviously worthless as a source, but I see it more as a reflection of some of the ridiculous ideas that are floating around in our society today and defy some pretty basic rules of logic and reason.

Is there anyone here who can actually defend Conservapedia? Any other opinions on it?

Well after glancing at it for 4 seconds it's clearly very biased and spreads a lot of misinformation.

I read abit more, I don't have much of a history with the site.

As a possible conservative, it's not creditable; almost evey page has BS, it's seems more jokeful than informative to conservatives .

http://www.conservapedia.com...:

In 2006, the prestigious science journal Science reported concerning the United States: "The percentage of people in the country who accept the idea of evolution has declined from 45 in 1985 to 40 in 2005. Meanwhile the fraction of Americans unsure about evolution has soared from 7 per cent in 1985 to 21 per cent last year."

Ok, you don't have be Libertarian to think thats BS.

What p*sses me off is thinking about the probably hundreds of thousands of people who would go there on a daily basis to support their beliefs not realizing it's all a load of bullocks.

Right, and even if it is true... since when does the consensus of a bunch of uninformed lay-people mean anything to how true a scientific theory is? People are by-and-large idiots and should not be trusted.

Exactly. People actually believe this stuff.

Go the article for "Liberal" and read the first paragraph. Or the one on Atheism.

Conservapedia looks less professionally made than Encyclopedia Dramatica.
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

LOL! From the article for atheism: "Currently, there is an ongoing debate on whether atheism was a causal factor for Friedrich Nietzsche's insanity or whether it was caused purely through disease."

This is a joke, right? RIGHT??!

Thought I'd look something up quick, and I already found several things either wrong or missing from their article on Stephen Harper. (http://www.conservapedia.com...)

a) They never mention his tenure as a Young Liberal

b) The Reform Party was never a 'true' conservative party, it was simply a populist movement eventually taken over by neo-conservatives.

c) Preston Manning never resigned his leadership, he lost a leadership race

d) They failed to mention that Harper's 2008 election call was illegal, and instead called it 'not binding'

e) The Liberal-NDP coalition was official

f) Parliament was prorogued until January, not February

Sigh.

I'd beg to differ.

I mean, some of the stuff on there is just so outrageously absurd. I doubt the site attracts anyone to the "conservative" ideology; it doesn't even represent the conservative ideology. Mostly, I think the site is used by insane lunatics who probably can't be turned around in their thinking regardless of the site's existence. Moreover, I think it's better for them to have a site to vent their frustration on rather than for them not to have such a vent and do something dangerous.

None of you read conservative propaganda. Some conservatives honestly believe that liberals hate Christmas, Jesus, and fetuses.

Most of that site is off the wall.

Actually, this site might be run by liberals to make fun of conservative stereotypes of liberals, kind of like Rush Limbaugh's liberal dictionary.

No, its run by an actual conservative: http://en.wikipedia.org...

The guy is the son of the Eagle Forum founder. That site is as literal as it can get.

The article on Evolution is solely based on how other people think it is wrong and has nothing to do with what it is.

No, that's not what it is. Do some research.
