It's true that 90% of the threads in this section are irrational attacks on evolution by folks that don't really understand how it works. If the
section title were reflective of the majority of activity it would be called "The Religious War on Evolution". That essentially sums up what goes on
here, but the main problem is that the whole thing is a farce. There is no creationism vs evolution as they aren't even mutually exclusive, plus
evolution is never actually debated, only straw man versions of what people think it is.
I guess technically you could call evolution the origin of species, so it does fit the section title, but creationism is pretty much dead now(I'm
talking YEC / teach ID in school crowd, not all beliefs in god or creation). Before this week there was a solid 2-3 weeks with hardly any activity at
all until 2 threads were suddenly revived. You have the same few trolls that roam the section and post new threads rehashing the same old outdated
arguments, but all in all nothing new happens here at all. I think simply "Origins"
is a good title. Creationism is dead, nothing new has
come from the movement in years. It's had it's day in the sun, but it's over now. Besides, creationism is a version of origins, so "Origins and
Creationism" is a bit of a redundant title. It's like saying "Transportation and cars"
