Welcome to the CreationWiki!
We thank the Lord for your willingness to serve Him by participating in the development of this educational resource. The CreationWiki is a collaborative effort and your help is needed. Our hope is that by working together we can build an archive of knowledge that will spread the truth of His creation throughout the world.
Please note that only creationists are permitted to edit articles. New editors are encouraged to visit the community portal to find ways of getting involved. It is also important to familiarize yourself with policy, such as the requirements for uploading images. The CreationWiki has been equipped with numerous help files that are essential for people unfamiliar with editing using the Mediawiki software.
- Policy - We now ask that editors provide references to support all article content.
- Creating a new page - Simply enter a title for your new article and click "Create page".
- Editing Help - Authoring within the CreationWiki may require a little education.
- Formatting Help - Formatting pictures and creating tables will help make your pages professional.
Your edit concerning the viewing of fossils on display and what is "logical to suppose" is not in keeping with the creationist point of view. We require all editors to observe this creationist point of view.
In fact, the "logic" by which anyone can "suppose" that fossils that are grouped together, descended from the same ancestor, makes a number of assumptions, none of which are safe. During the global flood, billions of animals were suddenly buried under miles of limestone and other sediments that the escaping subcrustal ocean dredged up. (See Hydroplate theory). These sediments were subject to hydrological sorting during deposition and during an episode of massive liquefaction when the hydroplates crushed themselves after meeting resistance after falling away from the present Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The animal carcasses sorted themselves with these sediments, and these are the fossils of today.
I offer the above for the same reason that I would offer it to anyone who has difficulty un-learning a lifetime of false lessons about the earth, its history, and above all its age. But to address the point of your future with CreationWiki: You will need to declare your viewpoint now, and the best place to do that is on my talk page, which I watch all the time. (We don't like to watch each other's talk pages forever; instead we leave messages on one another's talk pages, which each user automatically watches.) Now if you aren't a creationist, then you're welcome to comment on articles, images, and essays, so long as you restrict yourself to Talk namespaces only (Talk, User talk, Project talk, File talk, Essay talk, Portal talk, or any other kind of "talk"). Only take heed: if you are not willing to abide by this rule, and if you continue to publish non-creationist remarks on article, or if during my watch of various articles or by a spot-check of unwatched articles or your contributions I find that you are so acting, you will then stand in violation of administrative discipline, and I shall have to block your account.
If, on the other hand, you wish to maintain that you are a creationist, then you must explain your reasoning. Perhaps you are what is known as an old earth creationist, in which case you should feel free to explain, on the talk page of that linked article, what an old earth creationist is, and whether our article on that school of thought is in any way in error. For your information, we are young earth creationists, and we believe we have a wealth of evidence to support our contention that this earth, the solar system, and indeed the universe are all quite young—by earth clocks, in any case.
