A couple of recent threads have begun to turn into flame wars. To prevent this website from degenerating, here are a few guidelines for posting. If you flout them, your posts are subject to removal.
1. Do not call people names. I don’t like to see people called “idiots” or “morons” to their e-face, no matter who they are. Let’s keep the discourse calm and civil, although of course passionate arguments are welcome — indeed, encouraged.
2. If you’re coming here to claim that the “theory” of evolution is a hoax, or is in some important way incorrect, you’re probably at the wrong place. Realize that you are fighting 150 years of solid evidence. The evidence for evolution is of course the topic of my book, which is also the title of this website. If you think you have new and dramatic evidence that modern evolutionary theory is wrong, give it. If you just want to rant, there are plenty of other blogs where they welcome that. If you’re seeking education about evolution, ask politely for it and then go consult the references you’re given. If you assert something that my book — or many of the other books describing what evolution is and how it works — debunks, you’ll be spanked for not doing your homework.
3. If you’re here to tout some form of intelligent design/creationism, you’re probably at the wrong place as well. ID and creationism have been thoroughly refuted for years. I won’t tolerate somebody coming here and announcing that, say, Michael Behe has a lot of great ideas about irreducible complexity. If you have dramatic new evidence for ID/creationism, give it.
