The is-dumb of the Crowd

I'm not sure what I find funniest about Conservapedia.

Perhaps it's the claim that British spellings are a sign of liberal bias on Wikipedia. Or the fact that all the entries read like high-school book reports. Or that the original article for "United States of America" defined it as: "The United States of America, or just "America", is the country we live in." Or wacky stuff like redefining "faith" to mean "Christian faith", and then using that definition to prove that, Q.E.D., no other religion can be based on faith.
 
I'd like to think the whole thing is a troll, but there seems to be far too much work gone into the site just for the sake of a joke.

Maybe it's just further proof that, as Stephen Colbert said, reality has a well-known liberal bias.
