Atheists are living in denial about Conservpedia's atheism articles

Conservapedia has one the largest collection of articles on atheism on the internet. Its main atheism article and its collection of atheism article have both received a considerable amount of web traffic. The Freedom From Atheism Foundation has featured Conservapedia atheism content on their Facebook page which receives a considerable amount of social media traffic. In addition, large Christian YouTube channels have commentated favorably on Conservapedia's atheism articles.

According to the web traffic tracking company Alexa, as of 11/2/2017, Conservapedia receives 62.3% of its web traffic from the United States.[4] In the last 10 years or so, negative views about atheists in the United States have sharpened (see: Views on atheists).

A 2016 press release of a University of Minnesota study on atheists reported:

Survey data collected in 2014 shows that, compared to data collected in 2003, Americans have sharpened their negative views of atheists...

The findings of this most recent survey support the argument that atheists are persistent cultural outsiders in the United States because they are perceived to have rejected cultural values and practices understood as essential to private morality, civic virtue, and national identity. Moreover, any refusal to embrace a religious identity of any type is troubling for a large portion of Americans.[5]

Conservapedia was founded by Andy Schlafly who is the son of the late anti-feminist Phyllis Schlafly. Yet, even the feminist Monica Shores quoted Conservapedia's material related to the new atheist Richard Dawkins. Her Ms. Magazine article titled Will “New Atheism” Make Room For Women? was one of the first articles criticizing the New Atheism movement for being sexist.[6] She also cited Conservapedia in her article and indicated: "The lack of lady presence is so visible that Conservapedia commented on it by noting that Dawkins’ website overwhelmingly attracts male visitors."[7]

Atheists have tried to pretend that Conservapedia's atheism article are merely reinforcing the opinions of Christian fundamentalists and nobody else take the material seriously. Yet, this is obviously not true.

There are atheists who are obsessed with Conservapedia and have Severe Conservapedia Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (SCOCD). Deep down they know that Conservapedia is playing a part in shaping public opinion about atheism.
