(Snopes.com) – The website Snopes recently derived sharp criticism from members of the Christian faith after publishing an article that declared the life and death of Jesus Christ as little more than an ancient bamboozle.
For the last 18 years Snopes has been documenting hoaxes, scams, chain letters and urban legends for the perusal enjoyment of web surfers. Created in 1995 by the husband and wife team of David and Barbara Mikkelson, the website has since expanded to become one of the most comprehensive and respected archives of human chicanery to date.
Along with their ever-growing database of cons, so too has their readership flourished, currently averaging roughly 300k unique visitors per day. The majority of these individuals herald the site as an infallible fountainhead of wisdom and truth.
