Conservapedia content has often been proven right on topics ranging from science to politics to the World Cup. Although incredibly rare, Conservapedia has been occasionally wrong even for predictions that some liberals have ridiculed. Examples include:
|Date of Conservapedia statement||Conservapedia statement||liberal claptrap in response||Result||Date of Result|
|Dec. 26, 2006||The Nobel Prize "selection process has become political, as it was not given to Ronald Reagan or Pope John Paul II or to anyone who criticizes the theory of evolution. The Nobel Prizes for literature and peace are mostly given to outspoken liberals, such as Jimmy Carter."||Liberal denial insists that the Nobel Prize has integrity, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.||Subsequently the Nobel Peace Prize was absurdly awarded to Barack Obama despite a lack of any beneficial, meaningful achievement, and even Obama supporters reacted with "shock" and "a belief that the award was premature, a disservice and a potential liability."||October 2009|
|Aug. 18, 2007||Because Jon Stewart's movies "almost always do very badly (critically and financially) people say that there is a 'Jon Stewart Curse' that he brings to all his movies."||His audience of public school kids is clueless.||The 2008 Oscars, which he hosted, set the modern record for fewest viewers, and Stewart has not appeared in a movie since Conservapedia's observation in 2007.||Feb. 24, 2008|
|Jan. 10, 2008||Conservapedia observes that Shaken Baby Syndrome is a doubtful theory by governmental child protective services, which has resulted in dubious convictions.||The governmental "experts" must be right and Conservapedia must somehow be wrong.||Years later, even National Public Radio admitted doubts about a conviction for Shaken Baby Syndrome, and Democrat Governor Jerry Brown commmuted a high-profile sentence for it.||March and April 2012|
|2007-2011||Conservapedia repeatedly calls Barack Obama and Michelle Obama liberal elitists before the 2008 election and throughout 2009. See also: Barack Obama and liberal elitism, Barack Obama and uncharitableness and Michelle Obama and liberal elitism||Many liberals have a Messiah complex about Barack Obama, comparing him unjustifiably to the caring and suffering servant Jesus Christ. The liberal press gives Obama a free pass on his uncharitable past and his liberal elitism.||During a time of severe economic problems in the United States and throughout the world, Barack Obama plays game after game of golf and takes lavish vacations while Michelle Obama goes on expensive shopping sprees. The liberal press and the liberal political establishment are increasingly souring on Obama, even calling him lazy and incompetent.||2008-2011|
|2007-2011||Conservapedia repeatedly declares that atheism is corrupt and wrongheaded and that the future of atheism does not look promising. See also: Atheism and Conservapedia atheism articles||Many atheists chaffe under the constructive criticism and engage in a lot of kvetching and whining rather than repenting and becoming Christians (see: Resources for leaving atheism and becoming a Christian).||In August of 2011, the American Spectator reports that Global atheism is declining and global Christianity is experiencing explosive growth.||2011|
|2007-2011||Conservapedia repeatedly declares since its early beginnings that atheist community is filled with insincere, corrupt and cowardly individuals. See: Atheism and Conservapedia atheism articles In addition, in 2010 Conservapedia creates a comedy/satire concerning the cowardice of Richard Dawkins (see: Atheism and cowardice). In July of 2010, a Conservapedia creates a series of comedies/satires focusing on the follies of atheism and evolutionism (see: Essay:Comedy and satires concerning atheism and evolution).||Many atheists chaffe under the constructive criticism and satires and engage in a lot of kvetching and whining rather than repent and become Christians. See also: Resources for leaving atheism and becoming a Christian.||In 2010, the Global atheist convention dodges a debate with Creation Ministries International. In 2011, Richard Dawkins is accused of cowardice in the press and widely criticized in other venues for his refusal to debate Christian apologist William Lane Craig. PZ Myers repeatedly refuses to debate Vox Day in 2011. In a 2011 foul mouthed diatribe, Penn Jillette gives a lame excuse for why he won't debate a Conservapedian which is later shown to be a farce. Jillette also dodges a debate with the popular YouTube video creator Shockofgod and with the Christian apologist Sye Ten Bruggencate. See also: Atheism and cowardice.||2010-2011|
|2007-2011||Conservapedia repeatedly says its web traffic prospects look bright.||Liberals, particularly atheists and evolutionists, repeatedly proclaim the imminent death of Conservapedia and their predictions repeatedly end in failure.||According to the web traffic companies Alexa, Compete and Quantcast Conservapedia's web traffic is healthy and has continues to grow. Conservapedia creates the essay Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder which mocks atheists and evolutionists false predictions and obsessiveness.||2007 to 2011|
|2007||In 2007, Conservapedia creates its Homosexuality in animals myth article.||Liberals tout a supposed "gay penguin" in a California zoo. Liberals rabidly deny someone can be an ex-homosexual. Ex-homosexual is faced with a $10,000 fine, spends $7,000 in legal fees, and is forced to go to pro-homosexuality classes by a liberal judge who claimed he engaged in a aggressive behavior in a discussion with homosexual man (during his discussion the ex-homosexual man was holding a baby).||In 2010, the alleged gay penguin in a California zoo starts a romance with lady penguin and abandons his supposed male penguin lover. The homosexual activist Wayne Besen claims the penguin is living in denial and not an ex-homosexual male penguin. (see: Homosexuality in animals myth).||2010|
|2008-2010||Beginning in March of 2008, Conservapedia begins chronicling higher education moral corruption via its Professor values article. Starting in 2010, Conservapedia repeatedly warns students about picking their college majors on its main page. See: Worst college majors Conservapedia also cites Gerald Celente about future protests in Europe/Europe and cites Celente concerning useless college majors which needlessly rack up debts in young people. Conservapedia warns about a future "higher educational bubble".||Liberal colleges and liberal press do not give enough attention to the issue of picking a college major. Nor does the liberal press sufficiently warn about future protests. Liberal press does not give adequate coverage to the issue of higher education moral corruption. Liberal press and liberal academia do not sufficiently warn about the poor education universities and colleges are often providing.||In January of 2011, it is reported that a study shows that a very large percentage of college students are not developing higher thinking skills. The trend of liberal colleges closing their doors continues.
Occupy Wall Street and other Occupy protests happen in the United States and in Europe in 2011 and young people are very prevalent in the protests. Some protests turn violent and engage in property destruction. In November of 2011, the Daily Mail reports concerning the Occupy Wall Street movement and the trash/garbage associated with it: "If this is the product of our liberal arts colleges, why continue their tax exemptions and tax support? Universities are supposed to produce intelligent people who will make a positive contribution to society. Not these pigs". In 2011, it is reported that Occupy movements are littering the streets.
|The Occupy movements of 2011 are still prevalent in the world and the unemployment levels of young people remain high.|
|Dec. 22, 2008||the theory of man-made global warming is not verified science, and there is no consensus||"The science is settled" that rapid global warming is somehow occurring, despite much evidence to the contrary.||Frigid temperatures, October blizzards, and rejection of the theory by the American public; liberals try to change the terminology to "climate change."||2011|
|August 2009 to 2011||Conservapedia indicates that Ben Bernanke's investment portfolio dropped in value in 2008. In addition, Conservapedia declares, "Given the abysmal economic policy of Bernanke and the Obama administration, Bernanke probably should invest in gold." During the period of 2010-2011, Conservapedia cited the investor Jim Rogers who repeatedly suggests that people invest in commodites.||Liberals call Conservapedians "gold bugs"||As of November 2011, the price of gold has gone up dramatically. The price has gone from about $950 an ounce to about $1,700 an ounce.
Price of gold continues to have an overall upward trend. In August of 2011, the Financial Times has an article entitled "Gold remains world's most powerful trend". The Wall Street Journal reports in 2011 that "Companies Stock Up as Commodities Prices Rise". In November of 2011, Unilever warns about rising commodity prices.
|August of 2009 to 2011|
|September 2009||Conservapedia mentions that some Americans are turning to self-employment during the economic downturn as jobs are difficult to come by. In addition, Conservapedia mentions developing multiple streams of income in case the economy goes into a depression and many people lose their jobs. Conservapedia also gives resources and suggestions for low cost businesses.||The liberal "graduate student at a sociology department somewhere in the United States" at the Total Drek blog seems to shiver in horror at the hard work involved. In addition, he appears to want people to have a defeatist cry in their beer attitude instead of having a proactive and creative can do attitude. In 2011, Conservapedia indicates that a sociology major is one of the worst college majors to have.||Barack Obama's "stimulus" package fails. Many Americans lose their jobs and have their unemployment benefits run out. In 2011, Fox News reports that most unemployed no longer receive unemployment benefits. Homelessness increases and "Obamavilles" spring up. Unemployment in the United States and many other countries remains high. In 2011, Cafe Press is selling unemployed sociology major bumper stickers.||World economy continues to skate on thin ice and the Eurozone is experiencing significant economic problems.|

|August 2011||In the late summer of 2011, a Conservapedian was very optimistic on Creation Ministries International's Question evolution! campaign and continues to be very optimistic.||Atheists and evolutionists whine about the campaign plus a YouTube atheist and/or evolutionist creates a fairly popular yet ultimately ineffective video which is easily refuted. See: 15 Questions Evolutionists STILL can't answer!||The website traffic of Creation Ministries International (CMI) sees significant growth post August 2011 (see: CMI web traffic growth). Atheists and evolutionists have yet to adequately answer the 15 questions that satisfactorily evolutionists cannot answer which is the focus of the Question evolution! campaign.
