Does anyone here take Conservapedia seriously?

Seriously. This is probably the funniest site i've read since Cracked and The Onion. Seriously.

But does anyone take this site seriously?

No, it doesn't.

His post said something about taking something seriously.

I don't think Suberboy can even fly. Hard to take a kid in a cape seriously without that ability.

Okay, on-topic: I've never even heard of Conservapedia. So I don't know if I take it seriously or not, but I'm fairly certain I care very little about it.

All I know about it is that grundle has been referred to it several times, which means I take it very seriously.

It's provocative, I'll give you that. Just like Fox News and George Clooney.

It's "knock", not "mock". This has been bothering me for some time.

I think he was banned from editing articles there.

I guess if I ever have any questions about homosexuality, I'll know where to go.

Oh, in fact, it's one of my favorite unintentionally funny sites. It's right up there with Landover Baptist Church.

Never having been to the site I decided to check out why there was so much gay interest and there was one single article on their most popular list dealing with teh gay. Everything else posting in your "list" (other than that second: Homosexuality) was not there. It had obviously been edited to remove anything that wasn't gay. Unless you're claiming you made that screen shot yourself I call "fake".

Oh, I was sure you were joking, I just hate when people use lies to besmirch something (regardless if you think it deserves it). There's plenty there to make fun of without pulling out the homophobe card.

I personally (despite being conservative) don't like what I've seen of the site, way too "Christ-ey" for me.

The screenshot is from a few years ago. I didn't capture this one, but I remember going to check it out for myself after I saw that list posted somewhere. This guy did the same thing.

But feel free to believe I just made it all up, and I'll continue to wonder why conservatives never seem to be aware of any site that's embarrassing to the cause.

I'm sorry, I don't buy it. The numbers listed there don't even add up. It jumps from 1.9 milliom veiws (about the number Homosexuality is still at "years later") down to just over 500 thousand?

It's an obvous joke of a site but that's just silly.

Re: Does anyone here take Conservapedia seriously?

Here's their current list. Homosexuality is still popular, but it seems they've consolidated some of their articles:



Curious that Barack Obama's article title includes his middle name, but not John McCain's or Sarah Palin's...

Re: Does anyone here take Conservapedia seriously?

"Examples of Bias in Wikipedia" is interesting because it's the only section where the sole viewer, grundle, is also the only contributor.
