Why should a conservative bother using Wikipedia?

I mean besides being a lazy-man’s reference; how about doing some actual research instead?



The entire article is so brief that I decided to quote all of it.

Creation Moments – Most people turn to Wikipedia for information nowadays. However, conservatives need to know that this online encyclopedia should be used with extreme caution, especially when looking up topics touching on politics, the Bible, climate change, social issues and worldviews. Take, for instance, Wikipedia’s articles about biblical creation and evolution.

“Creationism is … commonly used to refer to religiously motivated rejection of certain biological processes, in particular evolution, in favour of an interpretation of a creation myth as an explanation accounting for the history, diversity, and complexity of life on earth…”

In contrast to what it calls the “creation myth,” Wikipedia describes evolution as a “powerful explanatory and predictive theory [that] has become the central organizing principle of modern biology…” In other words, biblical creation is a myth and evolution is true.

As Conservapedia quite correctly points out, Wikipedia “was initiated by two atheists: entrepreneur Jimmy Wales and philosophy professor Larry Sanger on January 15, 2001. Despite its official ‘neutrality policy,’ Wikipedia has a strong liberal bias.”
