Move over Wikipedia: Conservapedia is here!

Many thanks to my favorite Conservative Jon Swift for calling my attention to this new online conservative encyclopedia. According to their main page "Conservapedia is a much-needed alternative to Wikipedia, which is increasingly anti-Christian and anti-American."

Now, thanks to this valuable resource, if your child is asked to do a report for school on, let's say, kangaroos he or she will no longer be limited to encyclopedias that are limited to facts. Instead the student will learn this:
Like all modern animals, modern kangaroos originated in the Middle East[1] 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.
Or let's say that our young student is interested in learning more about Jesus Christ:

Historical context indicates that as a 'rabbi' in judea, Jesus would have been married. An explaination (sic) for his lack of a wife may be that he was a confirmed bachelor, and had twelve men to fufill his needs.
There have been a number of attempts by silly people to tamper with Conservapedia. For example, the page on Jesus now says that God has recently announced on his blog that Jesus is actually his nephew, not his son. I would urge these trouble-makers to desist. Conservapedia is funny enough already.
