Ellis D. Tripp writes: "A group of religious right activists has launched "Conservapedia" in an attempt to counter the perceived "liberal bias" in the Wikipedia. A few examples of the "corrections":

"They are mentioned in numerous places throughout the Good Book. For example, the behemoth in Job and the leviathan in Isaiah are almost certainly references to dinosaurs."
