Description

A Storehouse of Knowledge or aSK is a general encyclopædia with a biblical worldview. It was founded by former (disillusionedsee note) Conservapedia sysop Philip J Rayment. It began on 22nd March 2009.

Note:

Philip J Rayment about Conservapedia: "However, it is not, and never will be, an encyclopaedia. It gives Christians, creationists, and conservatives a bad name by operating in ways that do not match Christian and conservative values. As long as it is like that (and it shows no signs of improving), I want it to fail." [1]

The wiki is small but growing fast. Although there are a few former as well as current Conservapedians, most of the membership consists of RationalWikians who do not agree with the site's worldview, and this has caused some conflicts. RationalWiki has an article on A Storehouse of Knowledge [2] and details current events there [3].

Money spent on design and name

"It appears there was quite a bit of money spent to get the wiki well designed and someone thought of a really good name for it. ASK can't compete with the lavish design that the Schlafly family paid for at Conservapedia but its supporters probably think ASK makes up for that by being more reasonable."

I find this comment rather bizarre. First, it has no citation, it just vaguely asserts something that may or may not be true - and probably isn't. It's not too hard to build a nice-looking wiki interface with a little effort. Huw Powell 19:21, 29 June 2009 (EDT)

I agree. I've removed it because it felt like sarcasm and mocking. I don't think A Storehouse of Knowledge is a good name (it's too long for a website), and the design is standard monobook. Conservapedia's skin is also monobook with a few custom colors and minor tweaks. Nx 15:43, 26 August 2009 (EDT)
