I just want to say how impressed I am with this forum.
Most forums are openly hostile to either the bible or to evolution.
This one seems to be remarkably tolerate toward both.

Not only that but the replies here are quite knowledgeable.

I agree. I'm very impressed. The in-depth knowledge of the participants makes it a rich source of information on a variety of subjects. The debating skills you see here - both formal and improvised - are quite educational too!

Even the idle banter and flame wars here are of a much higher quality that you're likely to find anywhere else. I see a lot of clever wit and humor.

My only complaint is that I'm rarely able to contribute much. That is, the detailed knowledge and argumentative skills of the members here are so great, that I can very rarely add anything that hasn't already been (or soon will be) expressed in much better ways than I might ever come up with.

Software Second to None!
In addition to our knowledgeable members and their fine posting and debate style, this place is great for another reason: the technology. Many forums fail to attract the kind of debates that take place on EvC simply because their forum software itself is not suited to the type of flowing give-and-take discussion required for purposeful debating. With EvC, however, Percy's created quite the gem! The system of reply tracking, topic promoting, quoting, and referencing goes very far in creating an online environment that is more adequate for reasonable, intelligent, and in-depth conversations than any other forum I've seen.

It really is impressive!

We are just lulling you into a false sense of security.

When we feel we have 'pulled you in' far enough.... BLAMMO!! (...or some other inappropriate 1960's Batman sound effect).

Welcome, I've been impressed with the site for years now, and many others for much longer than my time here.

Just curious as to exactly how you found the site. How did you come across these excellent pages?

hard to say really.
I've had it bookmarked along with many other forums for quite some time.
I probably found it through a google search

I found it on a google search as well. Bookmarked it then came back when I thought I had enough time to saunter through the zillions of threads. Well I was wrong then and now only barely manage to keep up with threads in one section. But it's invaluable and I've grown tremendously by reviewing the posts here. Good luck on your journey.
