The Talk Origins website presents mainstream scientific views on evolution, geology, astronomy, and other sciences in dispute. The content is very fair-minded, and has been developed largely by mainstream scientists with various religious beliefs. The site is pro-science, but certainly not anti-God or anti-religion.

Much of the material is designed to teach a fairly general audience about the science behind the debate. It is presented accurately and clearly, and kept reasonably up-to-date. In places, there is too much detail --- for example, there is rather a lot on the biological species concept.

Some parts of the website are devoted to debunking Creationist claims. It is an excellent resource for finding whether a claim has a simple rebuttal: surely such a resource should be useful for both sides of the debate.

Recommended sections:

  1. the Must Read Files, many of which have printable PDF versions and are well worth the paper
  2. the Posts of the Month, particularly the Jan 2003 POTM

Talk Origins also archives fake and confabulated "quotations" attributed by anti-evolutionists, misguided at best, to non-existent scientists: e.g. here.
