EvoWiki is a failed wiki project that attempted to gain an internet audience by promoting evolutionary pseudoscience. As of September 19, 2012, it was an archived website. The website traffic tracking company Compete reported that as of August 20, 2012, EvoWiki had only 771 unique visitors a month.[1][2]

CreationWiki has a list of refutations of many of EvoWiki's claims.[3]

Context of EvoWiki's failure and creationist commentary

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

Creationist commentary on archived status of EvoWiki

A supporter of the Question evolution! campaign quipped concerning EvoWiki's archived status:

EvoWiki is an archived wiki. They must know that nobody wants to edit EvoWiki. It is like an ugly and mangy puppy that nobody wants to play with. Can you blame them for choosing to archive it and keep it archived? Evolutionists cannot satisfactorily answer the 15 questions for evolutionists of the Question Evolution! Campaign. So getting editors to edit EvoWiki would be a tremendously hard sell.[5][6]
