    I don't see how that's discriminatory against conservatism, protection is usually granted when an article is controversial enough that it would otherwise get vandalized. All this would suggest is that someone who disagrees with the article (in the context this can be either liberals or conservatives) would want to make liberalism look better or worse, and that there are many such people.


    As for consensus, that's why science isn't defined by legal terms, for example physical laws are accepted as absolute, they just can't be broken, while laws in a legal context describe a set of rules that are enforced by certain social institutions.




    AS for conservapedia, lots of the articles are just very badly written (I'm not talking about the content), I realize that a lot of them are supposed to be written by home-schooled kids of unspecified ages but the syntax that's used and the layout of the article is almost uniformly bad.

    That just shows that it has either been recently vandalized or that something has happened in the boards to cause that to happen. I'm sure that conservatives have had their's locked for a bit too.

    It's not a permanent thing it's just that something has happened recently to have that happen.

    Another thing: I honestly don't see what creationism as a scientific theory does for science.

    I mean I understand how it is useful for social and political groups, but as a science it just really doesn't make sense.

    ... only if you're God, which none of us are not. ergo, does nothing for us.

    edit: do people actually use wikipedia for anything serious ? i like it as a source for quick information, but for schoolwork or whatever, we're not even allowed to use it as a reference. almost any reference will have its own skew, and i doubt wikipedia means to be anti-conservative. i'm just glad the conservative groups are making their own thing, instead of vandalizing wiki.

    I use Wikipedia for school assignments - most of the assignments are science-based, though, so they tend to be fairly accurate. I mean, how much bias can be in an article on, say, peptidyl transferase, or whatever it's called?

    I use Wikipedia on a very frequent basis for Scientific and Entertainment purposes; but, of course, I never get my information from just one source. That's a rule no matter where I go.
