Conservapedia destroyed

Have you heard of this project yet? It's supposedly a Wikipedia for all right-thinking (read: conservative) people, since Wikipedia is overrun with liberal editors and encyclopedic entries. Apparently this is its mission:

Conservapedia is a much-needed alternative to Wikipedia, which is increasingly anti-Christian and anti-American. On Wikipedia, many of the dates are provided in the anti-Christian C.E. instead of A.D., which Conservapedia uses.

Here's the entry on Fidel Castro (from the ML comments):

Fidel Castro overthrew Fulgenico Batista in 1959 and became dictator of Cuba. Liberals in America promoted Castro as a hero, but the conservatives believed he would become a ruthless and dangerous dictator. Sure enough, Castro soon began to rule the country cruelly, seizing private property and ending free speech. Under Castro's rule, Cuba has changed from being one of the richest nations to being one of the poorest.

The folks at Making Light are having great fun demolishing it.

Once again, conservatives prove themselves too intellectually vacant and inferior to accept anything other than their own opinion spit back at them.

One would think that the world would have tired of such a self-pitying canard by now.

Really, can't we just engage the Old Yeller treatment yet?

Some of the readers of various science blogs are actually posting satire, much of which is apparently being totaly accepted.
