So, you are a member of the religious right in the United States. You go online to find information to defeat those heathen atheists and their plot to subvert the youth by teaching the evils of Evolutionary theory. But what do you find? Wikipedia is biased against Creationism and the right!

What do you do? You found Conservapedia, a place where home-schoolers can get their biblical facts straight without Euro-pinko-lefty-contamination. Conservapedia, where the entry on dinosaurs reads:

"Because the term only came into use in the 19th century, the Bible obviously does not use the word "dinosaur." However, they are alleged to be mentioned in numerous places throughout the biblical account. For example, the behemoth in Job and the leviathan in Isaiah are sometimes said to be references to dinosaurs."
The entire entry on France reads: "A country in Europe. Thrived during the middle ages. The capitol is Paris, France, which was founded in the Middle Ages."

Inspired stuff. Jimmy Wales must be trembling as we speak.
