Bill Dembski posted the first post at UD on April 15, 2005. Thirteen years later I post this, the 20,000th. In addition to tens of thousands of posts, our readers and contributors have put up hundreds of thousands of comments in our comment threads (over 428,000 at last count).
UD’s mission is to serve the Intelligent Design community. I think we are doing that, and I am proud of the work we’ve done.
At this special time, I want to give special thanks to Denyse O’Leary for her tireless efforts at our news desk.
I also want to thank Kairosfocus, StephenB, gpuccio, johnnyb, Upright Biped, William J. Murray and our many other authors for their fine contributions over the years. Your posts and the discussions they launch are the lifeblood of the site.
Finally, a special shoutout to our webmaster Jack for keeping us up and running.
Here’s to the next 20,000! The adventure continues.
