    ...wow. Just... wow that is a debasement of science! Half of that stuff is just flat out wrong in so many ways.

    I love the "Jesus performed action at a distance" bit. You can't make this stuff up.

    I'm not sure. Conservapedia is a legitimate site (Wikipedia for conservatives), and the article has not been edited or taken down. It also has plenty of links to other articles on the site. But it's just so outrageous.

    Yeah, I have a hard time believing it's anything legitimate.

    They do realize that satellites have to make adjustments for time shifts according to the theory.... I would hope they realize that...

    The more I read about it, though, the more I think it's legitimate. The site was founded in 2006 by conservative Christian homeschoolers as a school project, and is devoted to countering the liberal bias of Wikipedia. (Yes, they actually have an article detailing why Wikipedia is biased.) And they have many more articles that would raise an eyebrow. For example, I'm browsing the article on Hollywood Values at the moment.

    Oh, it is legitimate.

    My christian co-worker believes the world is less than 2,000 years old and that carbon dating is completely invalid.

    Website is just anti-science. It's just another piece for us "unenlightened ones" to point and laugh at.

    And you know, I wouldn't be surprised if some of these people who edited this actually did study relativity. I have a good friend of mine who is going as premed, and she is DAMN smart, she will make it no doubt. Yet, she thinks evolution is completely wrong and STRONGLY believes in god. That peice of her truly confounds me so so much.

    HOW THE HELL DO YOU SAY SATELLITES DON'T TAKE RELATIVITY INTO ACCOUNT WHEN THEY ARE PROGRAMMED TO SYNC TIME BASED ON THE LAWS OF RELATIVITY???

    So she effectively doesn't "believe" in biology? Without the theory of evolution, you really don't have much to do in modern biology.

    I would be afraid to have her or anyone who really believes that as a doctor. Why do new flu vaccines have to be developed each year if evolution is incorrect?
