Conservapedia

Christian Encyclopedia

Conservapedia is an English-language wiki-based Web encyclopedia project written from an American Christian conservative point of view. It was started in 2006 by lawyer and social studies teacher Andy Schlafly, son of conservative activist and Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly. He stated that he founded the project because he felt that Wikipedia had a liberal bias.

Conservapedia's Opinions

Disagree
Currently the most advanced climate models, still disagree by more than a factor of two in their sensitivity to greenhouse gas forcing, and have significant disagreements with observed climate behavior at high latitudes. They are, therefore, utterly unable to project the change of climate in response to future greenhouse gas scenarios.

Although it [the IPCC] is generally considered to be an objective, neutral scientific body trying to find out whether or not the global warming theory is true, in actuality it had a biased agenda from the start.

The primary issue from Climategate is the data manipulation. Science requires data, and inadequacy of the climate record was always a problem even before Climategate became known to the public. ... Climategate has jeopardized the integrity of worldwide scientific data on climate change.

Agree
Since one nation has little control over another nation, without some sort of agreement between two nations, free trade might harm a particular group of people in one nation, such as laborers or consumers. However, the overall welfare of each country increases with free trade.

9/11 conspiracy theories are claims that the September 11, 2001 attacks did not happen in the way they are traditionally thought to have happened. Most theories state that, in one way or another, the United States government attacked its own country ... The evidence provided by the conspiracy theorists, also known as Truthers or "9/11 truthers" has been widely debunked by many famous researchers and even some 9/11 sympathizers.

Abstinence denial refers to two phenomena, deliberate denial by liberal and pro-abortion groups of the efficacy of abstinence-only programs in preventing disease, and denial from ignorance by those who have been convinced by the propaganda. ... Liberals claim that abstinence pledge campaigns are ineffective when compaired to programs that involve both abstinence and information about a variety of birth control methods. However, surely numerous studies disprove this.

Disagree
The Climategate emails and climate data have been the subject of intense debate, calling to question assumptions on anthropogenic (man-made) global warming; evidence revealed told the truth about man-made global warming: it's a fraud.

Agree
The fossil record does not support the theory of evolution and is one of the flaws in the theory of evolution. ...today there are over one hundred million identified and cataloged fossils in the world's museums. If the evolutionary position was valid, then there should be "transitional forms" in the fossil record reflecting the intermediate life forms. Another term for these "transitional forms" is "missing links".

Journalists in the West, dominated by liberal viewpoints, have painted a misleading picture of the science. They have publicized liberal slanders against scientists who dare to speak up against the fake "consensus" ... Many politicians have bought into the liberal claim of consensus ... In fact, many scientists disagree with the "facts," their certainty, and their interpretation.

Agree
Several prominent scientists have pointed out the politicized science of the UN's assessment methods [for the IPCC]. ... In addition, a number of the participants have testified to the pressures placed on them to emphasize results supportive of the current scenario and to suppress other results. That pressure has frequently been effective ...

Disagree
The holocaust denial view point has no support amongst any significant number of scholars. ... As denial of the holocaust is nonfactual, another common strategy of history revisionism is to use relativism by comparing it to other genocides, the death toll of Germans in WWII, persecution of homosexuals in Nazi Germany, or the number of abortions.

Historically, capitalism has fostered freedom and an increase in the standard of living and human rights, and vice versa. Societies that have tried non-capitalist systems inevitably fall into tyranny.

What happened is a huge, major shift, from the old order of 1,000 years of persecution, of dictatorship, of religious supremacy, of prosecuting minorities, to a completely new order, which is called democracy, human rights, accountability, and transparency, and all this.

It is a commonly held belief of evolutionists that small changes in genetic materials (mutations) will ultimately produce the presumed large changes necessary for one biological organism to change into a different kind of biological organism which is commonly called macroevolution. This belief is not valid.
