Then and Now: Evolution of the BioLogos Website
As we celebrate the last 10 years of BioLogos, we can't help but marvel at the progression of the BioLogos website!
As we celebrate the last 10 years of BioLogos, we can’t help but marvel at the progression of the BioLogos website. From humble beginnings as a beliefnet column, to a full-fledged, dynamic online repository with thousands of pieces of content, the BioLogos website has served as an online haven for those seeking a better way to understand–and dialogue around–the issues of modern science and biblical faith. Below is a snapshot of the BioLogos website past and present.
In 2009, BioLogos was hosted by beliefnet under the column, “Science and the Sacred.”
BioLogos launched under the biologos.org domain, expanding its resource offering under “The BioLogos Forum,” invoking the exchange of ideas, questions, and answers between Dr. Francis Collins and others that helped to launch the organization.
In 2012, subtle visual changes were made to the site, but spoke to how BioLogos matured from dialogue around the issues of science and faith to an organization that offered many other resources, including program initiatives.
With a comprehensive set of common questions, hundreds of articles, videos, and more, and a rising interest in resources at the intersection of science and faith, we embarked on a journey in 2016 to better establish the BioLogos brand, but also serve up content in a dynamic, exciting way.
Enormous growth in traffic, along with always expanding programs and resources, led to the latest rendition of the BioLogos website. The new site serves webpages up to 80% faster than its predecessor, and a smart search engine assists users in finding what they need based on topic, reading level, author, and more.
