No. 118


Now that the damn site no longer times out for me, I might as well pile on. Conservapedia is a conservative answer to Wikipedia. Take any criticism ever levelled at Wikipedia and multiply by at least 100. The serious contributors are biased, and the smart-ass contributors make up a sizable minority of the people contributing to the site. Sure, the most flagrant things are being dealt with. You can no longer find the picture of Jesus riding a dinosaur. However, the dinosaur page does (as of this writing) contain the line: "A documentary exists starring the American actor Raymond Burr in which a dinosaur menaces mainland Japan, but the veracity of the film is disputed."

And there's also HP Lovecraft's entry.
