So, in 2015, nearly four years ago, BioLogos launched their forum. In their 2015 annual report, I found this text:
In early 2015, we launched a new “open discussion” platform using the Discourse software. By late 2015, the number of subscribers on the “BioLogos Forum” had increased to 600, with an average of 50-75 comments per day, on an average of 6-10 threads
After 1 year in, they had 600 users, 50-75 comments per day, and 6-10 threads per day. How does that compare with us right now? Right now, we are about 4 months in. We have 142 users, about 200 post per day, and about 5-15 topics per day. It seems that we are already far more active than BioLogos their first year, even though we are smaller.
And then also…
BioLogos is the only origins-focused organization that openly welcomes people with all perspectives to dialogue about faith and science.
Notably, BioLogos launched 4 years ago, without any competition. With constant growth, we should expect about 450 users after 12 months have passed. Now, also, it seems that they are not the only origins-focused forum.
Now there is Peaceful Science too.
What do you think?
