Submission + - Conservapedia, religious right answers Wikepedia

EponymousCoder writes: The Guardian is carrying an article about "Conservapedia" the religious rights answer to the "overly liberal" Wikipedia.

From TFA "I've tried editing Wikipedia, and found that the biased editors who dominate it censor or change facts to suit their views," Andy Schlafly, the founder of Conservapedia, told the Guardian. "In one case my factual edits were removed within 60 seconds — so editing Wikipedia is no longer a viable approach." I wonder whether the factual edits were something like the differences mentioned between the two: Dinosaurs Wikipedia "Vertebrate animals that dominated terrestrial ecosystems for over 160m years, first appearing approximately 230m years ago." Conservapedia "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."
