Everyone over at the scienceblogs (Orac
, Tim Lambert
, Thoughts from Kansas
, Mike the Mad Biologist
, Stranger Fruit
etc.), has been having a field day with the Conservapedia
. Created by conservatives to oppose the liberally biased Wikipedia (reality has a liberal bias), it consists of "conservative" viewpoints on everything from evolution, to abortion, to George Washington (did you know "Washington is perhaps the person other than Jesus who declined enormous worldly power"?, I bet he really did
cut down that apple tree too.)
I suggest you join them. I'll take nominations for most absurd article, and evolution is just too easy.
The best part is, this fits with the Give Up philosophy better than anything I could have ever done. Andrew Schlaffy (Crazy Phyllis' boy) is seeking to single-handedely undermine modern religious fundamentalism/conservatism simply by exposing the crazy, unscientific, and plain outlandish things they believe to the light of day. Not to mention their approach to truth. Basically, if you don't like the truth, just change it to whatever you want it to be.
Anyway, undermine the modern right wing movement by exposing to the world the crazy shit these people actually believe!
