TalkOrigins Archive

From Conservapedia

Talk.origins Archive is a formerly popular evolutionist website which has lost a significant amount of its web traffic.[1][2] The website sprang from Talk.origins which is a bot-moderated usenet group with a focus on the creation vs. evolution debate.

Although creationists never considered the TalkOrigins Archive to be an authoritative source and the scientists at the major creationist organizations ignored the website, it used to be cited often in online debates by evolutionists.

Commenting on the website's loss of web traffic, a supporter of Creation Ministries International's Question evolution! campaign quipped:

Stored under the right conditions, wine tastes better with the passage of time. Apparently, evolutionary speculation and evolutionary propaganda do not age well in the information age.[3]

Internet atheism and internet evolutionism have experienced significant declines in web visitors in recent years.[4] In addition, global atheism and agnosticism are losing adherents at present while global Christianity and biblical creationism are experiencing significant growth.

Creators of Talk.Origin archive articles did not necessarily have scientific credentials, nor was their work peer reviewed. It is used by promoters of evolutionary pseudoscience to advocate their antiquated religion. Michael Ruse, evolutionist science philosopher admitted, “Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.”[5]
