+ - Conservapedia tries to "fix" Wikipedia's b

Submitted by Wingnut 07
Wingnut 07 (666) writes "Upset by what they perceive as a liberal bias in Wikipedia, a group of conservatives led by Andy Schlafly, son of Phyllis Schlafly, has created the Conservapedia. Schlafly hopes to forge a 'new path' with Conservapedia, 'one that will make it one of the most "reliable online educational resources of its kind," according to the site (though this goal seems difficult given the wiki's stated main-page mission of "favor[ing] Christianity and America").' That may be tough, given that it suffers from many of the same problems as its nemesis, Wikipedia. 'The entire effort has been roundly mocked, even by conservatives, many of whom aren't pleased to be linked in the public imagination with Conservapedia entries like, "Modern kangaroos originated in the Middle East and are the descendants of the two founding members of the modern kangaroo baramin that were taken aboard Noah's Ark prior to the Great Flood."' Incredibly, the kangaroo entry does not appear to be a hoax."

All the simple programs have been written.
