Conservapedia General Disclaimer

These things may only be there for legal reasons, but they are still worth highlighting. The “General Disclaimer” page on Conservapedia includes the following:

Nothing here has necessarily been reviewed or checked by anyone with expertise to ensure that it is accurate or reliable. USERS RELY ON INFORMATION HERE ENTIRELY AT THEIR OWN RISK…

Nothing on this site can be deemed to be professional advice in any field. See an appropriate professional, such as an attorney or physician, if you need professional advice. Nothing here has necessarily been reviewed or checked by anyone with expertise to ensure that it is accurate or reliable.
It is entirely your obligation to independently verify any information that you obtain from this website, and in no event should you rely on any information found on this site except entirely at your own risk.

Now I want you to read those words while also noting the words connected with the image on the top left corner of the site (also reproduced here on the right). Surely this cannot be taken seriously, whether it is intended as a joke or not?

    Well Wikipedia has a somewhat similar but better written disclaimer.Conservapedia is a joke but it isn't meant to be. Have fun with their article on the moon.

    Conservapedia is one of those things that's really its own best parody.It's an excellent object lesson of the power of the internet to make questionable information readily available to a wide audience.

    the problem, james, is that i know way too many people who actually think JUST LIKE the ideas reflected on this site. you might conceive it a farce, but i can assure you, there are loads of people who will take it at face value.
