When talking about discoveries, events, etc., you should not link sites that go to religious apologetic websites. Instead, you should link the proper website for each topic.

For example, one could link this website for Noah's Ark:
http://www.arkdiscovery.com...

But the problem is that it is not a reliable source. The goal of the sight is to convince you it is true, not to find out if it is or is not.

A more reliable source for Noah's Ark is:
http://www.csun.edu...

A geologist talking about the construct of the formation, and many details, then drawing a conclusion.

Source reliability can fix this forum a lot. Using reliable sources for claims is a must. Using sources to religion apologetic websites is using biased sources, and only leads to misinformation.

Interesting. Would you consider links to secularist websites which discuss abiogenesis as biased, too?

Since you said SECULAR, no. Secular is not biased. If it went to an ATHEISTIC website, then yes.

Right, fair enough, as long as you want this idea to apply evenly.
