Submission + - Conservapedia replaces Wikipedia with anti-science

An anonymous reader writes: Some conservatives have launched an alternative to Wikipedia due to bias: ikipedia

The new resource is still small (only about 3200 articles, many weak and with gaps in coverage such as having an entry for mathematical "crisp sets" but not for "sets"), and understandably endorses religious and conservative points of view. But the encyclopedia also undercuts the search for knowledge with statements such as "But historical facts, or their absence, are irrelevant since we all know He existed. Historical sources and scientific facts are unnecessary," in the entry for Jesus (, and bizarre anti-science entries ( pedia_and_math_1.php).
