From Defending Conservatism Encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The origins of the Defending Conservatism Encyclopedia began with Bereawiki.com in March 2013, which was founded as an online encyclopedia defending the Bible, during which key content earlier created in 2012 was imported to Bereawiki. Due to a lapse in domain name renewal, the domain name was lost and Bereawiki was then split into two new sites, BibleStrength.com and Defending Conservatism Encyclopedia, using the backed up content from Bereawiki. The Defending Conservatism Encyclopedia officially went online on July 1st, 2018.

In Progress

Two new domains for 2020 elections and news releases have been purchased. Major updates are being made to replicate all of the customization features at Wikipedia. Extensions are still being fine-tuned in an attempt to replicate the exact same functionality as that at Wikipedia. If you see an error, let me know!
