Group Info

Our group is for supporters of the theory of evolution and the scientific method. We accept art related to evolution, anti-creationism, anti-intelligent design, Charles Darwin, biology, genetics, dinosaurs, and other paleontology subjects. In addition to artwork, we encourage discussion and debate on our monthly topics. We do not oppose religion in general unless it interferes with science.

Rules and submission guidelines

:bulletblack: Update October 2017: After 11 years of activity, our Paleoart folder is now full to capacity. I have closed this folder to submission attempts and have created a new folder for paleoart, Paleoart II, so please direct all artworks of prehistoric life to this folder and this folder only. Any paleoart submissions to the General folder will be declined without comment!

:bulletblack: Group conduct rules
  • Coming here to debate is fine, but please refrain from personal insults against the other members. A little more leeway is allowed when dealing with creationists who troll here (which happens occasionally), but still please avoid saying anything that would give this group a bad reputation.
  • As stated here, although this group opposes creationism, it has a neutral position with regard to religion in general. Attacking other members for their religion (or lack of religion) is not acceptable.
  • Please keep comments on group's journal entries and submissions on-topic.
  • Don't attempt to import drama from outside this community.

:bulletblack: Submission guidelines

1/30/14: Please read this!

The most basic rule for submissions here is that they need to be relevant to the subject of evolution. However, we receive a lot of submissions where it's not easy to determine whether or not they're relevant enough, so we also have some more specific guidelines about this.
  • Paleoart (reconstructions of prehistoric creatures) is always acceptable, as long as it's reasonably accurate.
  • Fanart from dinosaur-themed fiction, such as Jurassic Park or Primal Rage, is sometimes acceptable. Whether or not we'll accept it depends on whether it's accurate enough to be considered normal paleoart.
  • Speculative evolutionary scenarios (such as the evolution of an alien species) are acceptable, as long as enough emphasis is placed on the process by which they've evolved.
  • We'll accept submissions with either a pro-religious or anti-religious theme, as long as their focus is on evolution and/or anti-creationism.
  • Art of people who are important figures in the study of evolution is acceptable, as long as it focuses their work related to evolution more than their work in other areas.
  • There's no limit to how many total submissions a single user can have in the group, but users are limited to a maximum of five submissions per day.
  • We do not accept sketch submissions that have not been cleaned up in Photoshop or a similar program, and we also do not accept anything on lined notebook paper or graphing paper.

Just over a year ago, your group admins—myself and Agahnim—reached a major milestone in our long-term goal of evolution education and outreach, which served the basis for starting this group over 11 years ago. We published our first book! Published by Inkwater Press and titled God’s Word or Human Reason?, the book has been available on Amazon since January of last year.

I am now offering direct purchases of signed, inscribed hardcovers that are personalized with a drawing of a bird or dinosaur of your choice. They are $40 (U.S. and Canada) or $50 (everywhere else), shipping included. Thanks to my excellent web developer friend, you can do this easily through this form on my website, with PayPal or a credit card:

>>>Buy my book with a personalized signing and dinosaur drawing!<<<

We wrote the book with the original intention of educating creationists and fence-sitters with nuance, reason and kindness, but we guarantee that just about anyone who accepts evolution has something to learn from it too. For those of you who don’t already know about the book, here’s the Amazon description and inside flap teaser:

God gave humans the ability to reason, but the Bible commands that we have faith in Him. According to Answers in Genesis, the largest and most influential creationist organization in the United States, the conclusions of human reason must be rejected if they contradict our understanding of the Bible. What are the implications of this worldview, and is it the best one for a Christian to live by?

The book is the result of almost a decade of effort by its unusual collection of authors, each of whom has written a chapter (or two) in their area of expertise or interest.

Jonathan Kane, the originator of the book’s concept and purpose, has written the opening chapter on the nature and purpose of science as well as the centerpiece chapter on bird and dinosaur evolution;
Emily Willoughby has written the chapter on radiometric dating and contributed the book’s centerpiece illustrations of feathered dinosaurs (all of which were produced specially for the book and which include 3 exclusive paintings not posted on any of my online galleries);
T. Michael Keesey has written a chapter extensively detailing the emergence of the human primate from our diverse panoply of primate ancestors;
Glenn Morton, a professional geologist, has written a chapter on the pitfalls of “Flood geology” and what the fossil record tells us;
and James Comer, who has written the concluding chapter on how it’s possible to intrepret the Bible in a way that’s consistent with an acceptance of evolutionary theory.

One of the most unique things about our book is that all five of its authors were once creationists. We each eventually came to reject creationist ideology at different points in our lives, and from different catalysts, as we became exposed to the science of evolution, paleontology, and geology. Today, the five of us are represented by two atheists, one deist, and two evolution-accepting Christians, and each of us has written a short narrative following our chapters on the unique experiences and circumstances that led to our rejection of creationism and, in some cases, of Christianity.

We're delighted that the book has been well-received so far, and has recently been reviewed by the excellent Darren Naish of Tetrapod Zoology, and mentioned by evolutionary biologist Jerry Coyne. If you were ever a creationist or know someone who is, are interested in learning about creationist arguments and their strongest rebuttals in much more detail than any other book on the market, or would simply like the opportunity to support us and our creative endeavors (and get a commissioned sketch from me!), now's your chance to snag an exclusive copy. Thanks for reading, and for being part of the mission of Domain of Darwin!

I used to believe in creation much more than evolution. I used to think evolution was just some dumb theory. But now that I’ve faced the evidence, evolution is more than just “a theory.” It’s beautiful and outstanding and it explains how life came to be in all of its glory. I am very interested in this group. Would you mind if I joined?

so this place has gotten attacked by a religious zealot, a "biologist" who doesn't understand biology, and quite a few people who just didn't do research

What sort of eels are you after?

The earliest radiation of eel-like stem-Anguilliformes are from the lower Cenomanian Sannine Limestone, Lebanon (Abisaadia hakelensis, Anguillavus mazeni, Anguillavus quadripinnis, Luenchelys minimum, Urenchelys germanum)

The earliest crown-group anguilliform in the fossil record is probably Nardoechelys robinsi  from the Santonian-Campanian Calcari di Melissano, Italy which is generally accepted as early member of the living Ophicthidae (snake-eels).

Members of living eel genera make their appearance in the Eocene = eg. Anguilla ignota from the Messel Shales, Germany Echelus branchialis from the London Clay and Nettastoma belgica from the Lede Formation, Belgium.

Also, what does this person below want to reach with those fairy tales? It won't summon a non-existing being even if she tells stories and poets about him and calls evolution fake. Also, this group won't change because of her.

Because it's the absolute truth. God really did create heaven and earth. Only men suppress the truth in unrighteousness to deny the obvious. Everything is so intricately designed. Each animal brings forth after it's own kind. Evolution and the theories it gives for origins have already been disproven, and even some non-Christian scientists testify to how unscientific this theory is.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

(Genesis 1:1-31)
