Forum Terms & Rules
The primary goal of this forum is to provide a place for honest, educational, civil, and fun debate on the topic of origins. Given the heated nature of the creation vs. evolution debate, this is not an easy goal to achieve so we will require members to follow the stringent set of guidelines below. To make life easier for the moderators, our goal is to weed-out the troublemakers early, which should also lessen interaction from moderators. We want to have as little editing or deleting of posts as possible, so instead we will seek to edit “people”.
The bottom line is that only the intellectually honest need apply to participate in this board. Our moderators will be primarily looking to identify those who give even the slightest inkling that they are here to waste people’s time, consciously or otherwise. We will be looking for repeated cases of red-herrings, quibbling over terms (equivocation), strawmen, false allegations, and other devices contrary to honest debate. If this is your style of debate, then this forum isn’t for you. For a top-10 list of common time-wasting talk.origins-style tactics, please see the Evo-Babble Percher Alert page.
Following are the forum guidelines. The various moderators and Admins can cut or ban without notice or appeal or explanation.
This moderated forum fosters scientific dialog on creation-evolution, intended to be useful for visitors and searchers, as well as participants. That is the spirit of all the following guidelines.
The following are disallowed:
Consistent violators of the above guidelines will permanently lose posting privileges to the board, often without warning. Again, our moderators are looking primarily for time-wasters, regardless if they do not appear on the surface to be disingenuous.
We highly encourage members to report any questionable post, and to let us know if they think someone is wasting their time. We highly discourage complaints to Moderators or Admins. There are many other forums on the internet if you do not like the way things are run here. Our objective is quality, not quantity.
Since Evolution Fairytale is a Christian-based ministry, only Christians will be accepted as Moderators and Admins for the forum. If you are interested in assisting as a Moderator, please contact Fred Williams.
