This web site is for the critical examination of the antievolution movement. Unlike antievolution advocacy web sites, this site aims to provide links to both the antievolutionists making their own arguments and also to the critics who provide mainstream science answers to those arguments. While antievolution advocates are endlessly critical of evolutionary biology, it seems that they rarely take the time to critique their own arguments.

The Panda's Thumb is the virtual pub of the University of Ediacara (motto: Knowledge, Wisdom, Beer.). The patrons gather to discuss evolutionary theory, critique the claims of the antievolution movement, defend the integrity of science and science education in America and around the world, and share good conversation.
Over two hundred scientists affirmed a statement of support for evolution, including natural selection and common ancestry, and urged that creationism in its various guises not be taught in science classes. The kicker: they are are named "Steve" or a cognate. See the discussion thread here for more.
