The Evolution Education Wiki is a free, reader-built encyclopedia of evolution, biology, and origins. It is inspired by the Talk.Origins Archive and the Wikipedia project. The EvoWiki features essays, book reviews and a comprehensive encyclopedia of evolution, creationism and related topics.

Note: The old mainpage is dead. This main page is currently a linkfarm. These are the most important articles to port. FuzzyCatPotato 15:11, 2 July 2016 (EDT)
