Conservative Alternative to Wikipedia

Watch out Wikipedia.  There's a new site in town that's going to take your liberal bias down a notch or two.  Enter Conservapedia.  Here's a quote from the main page:

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. Christianity receives no credit for the great advances and discoveries it inspired, such as those of the Renaissance. Read a list of many Examples of Bias in Wikipedia.

The pages are concise to say the least.  The entry on Stalin is two short paragraphs consisting of eight sentences.  Some entries in the index don't show up in searches which implies there is yet a lot of heavy lifting to go before the site becomes useful.  Speaking of using "C.E.," the index uses the term somewhat liberally in breaking down time periods.  Of course, Conservapedia is relatively new and there's not a lot on it.  Maybe it will turn into something, or maybe it won't.  As of now, it just seems like a shorthand version of an alternative reality.
