conservative comedy

If you haven’t heard about Conservapedia, you’re really missing a treat. Apparently, the reality-has-a-liberal-bias wingnuts have decided that the online encyclopedia Wikipedia is liberal, and have started a conservative-friendly alternative.

Tom Tomorrow gives the project the type of attention it deserves: mockery and derision. On his blog, he excerpts an actual Conservapedia entry for “Unicorns:”

The existence of unicorns is controversial. Secular opinion is that they are mythical. However, they are referred to in the Bible nine times, which provides an unimpeachable de facto argument for their once having been in existence.

In the original texts, unicorns go by the Hebrew name Re-em whereas the Greek Septuagint used the name Monokeros. Unicorn itself is Latin. All three names mean “one horn”.

There are neither enough facts nor enough wisdom at Conservapedia to merit much notice, but the unintentional self-parody is rather amusing.
