Can a moderator please unlock my thread " Why a Orthodox cannot be a evolutionist" ? I am perplexed to why it is locked .
It is found under creation and the cosmos. Thanks for any help or information about this.

The expression, 'arbitrary censorship' is misplaced. There have been occasions when views which are not in accord with Orthodox teaching and Holy Tradition have been forcefully put, and in those circumstances, it has been entirely right and proper that the Orthodox position has been upheld; indeed, there have been times when such upholding has not been firm enough.

arbitrary ~ censorship ~ or not.
They should do whatever needs to be done to keep this site from becoming another OCnet type site.
where all the newly othodox go to make duragatory generalisations abt various races and to make sugestions on how to improve our orthodoxy Christianity. everyone overe there thinks they know better then the fathers who started the church....btw: most overe there are teens who think they have the answer to everything... I hate that site.
I just wish this valuable site would just somehow get a boost in traffick, im afraid it could soon close its doors:(

OC.net can be entertaining in small doses. But yes, the moderation is better here.
I hope this forum survives. But if this forum fail, try
It has excellent moderation while providing room for various levels of controversy.

This website has a specific purpose. a web site dedicated to the study of Orthodox Christianity through its patristic, monastic and liturgical heritage. Everything outside that is outside the boundaries of this site. If Fr. Irenei were to be strict, there would be no community forum and this site would be strictly academic in regards to Patristics. I would say he has been very kind in even allowing up to post here.
Keep in mind our site owner is a heiromonk with bigger responsibilities on his plate these days than overseeing how we stick to the rules he originally set out for this site.
If y'all want to quibble about atheists or the "super duper really original first and foremost apostolic primarily orthodox church of the first century, or how big the fish was that swallowed Jonah or was Jesus really black or had blond hair and blue eyes, there are other websites where you can post your opinion. This site is does not serve that function.
Besides, there are almost 10 years of historical community postings where I am sure your every questions have been answered. Use the search feature, it is your friend.

Paul does, if I may say so, make a valuable point. The collection of posts over ten years are a most valuable resource. What I regret is the virtual collapse of the other sections of the site such as Patristics and Liturgics. I hope the materials which were in the Main part are still available.

this topic was locked in Feb of 2013, not because it was controversial, but because those participating in it were engaged in personal attacks and there were no other posts. If everyone promises to abide by the forum guidelines, it can be reopened.
