I'm from Missouri

This site is named for the famous statement of US Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver from Missouri : "I`m from Missouri -- you'll have to show me." This site is dedicated to skepticism of official dogma in all subjects. Just-so stories are not accepted here. This is a site where controversial subjects such as evolution theory and the Holocaust may be freely debated.

Location: Los Angeles, California, United States

My biggest motivation for creating my own blogs was to avoid the arbitrary censorship practiced by other blogs and various other Internet forums. Censorship will be avoided in my blogs -- there will be no deletion of comments, no closing of comment threads, no holding up of comments for moderation, and no commenter registration hassles. Comments containing nothing but insults and/or ad hominem attacks are discouraged. My non-response to a particular comment should not be interpreted as agreement, approval, or inability to answer.

Posts that are unlisted in side-bar; link list added; "Darwinian Fundamentalism" blog

On the main (home) and archive pages, the list of posts in the left side-bar contains only the 10 most recent posts, and apparently there is no way to increase the number. This means that some of the posts on these pages may not be listed in this side-bar list -- old posts have already started disappearing from this list. I tried correcting this problem by switching from monthly to weekly archiving but it did not work, so I went back to monthly archiving. So, here is what you need to do --

If a post you are looking for is not listed in the side-bar of the main (home) page or the appropriate archive page, see if you can find the post by scrolling down the page. Alternatively, you can search for the post by using the "search" window in the top border of the blog screen. I had a hell of a time finding this window. A lot of blogs use this blog service (its logo is just to the left of the search window and the domain name of the blogs is "blogspot"), so it is important to know where this window is.

Also, I have added a list of links to the left sidebar (yes, JAD, I have included links to your blogs on prescribed evolution). I have discovered a great blog, "Darwinian Fundamentalism," which I have added to the link list.

How about adding ISCID's Brainstorms forum? They don't tolerate any indecencies which is why I post there a lot. You will also find some of my papers in the Archives there as well as some real civilized discussions and absolutely no flamimg. They now have an open reading, limited posting policy which may not appeal to some of the regulars here because they won't be able to insult anyone with whom they might disagree or don't happen to like.

I see you have omitted EvC and ARN which is probably just as well. I have been banned from both and can't even read ARN.

I love it so!

For the time being I want to keep the link list short because I fear that if I make the list too long, readers will just feel overwhelmed and will not bother to visit any of the links.

Many of the links I have listed have link lists themselves, making even more links available. Panda's Thumb has a particularly long list -- just go to the Panda's Thumb homepage, go to the llsts of "Science & Evolution Blogs" and "Pseudoscience Websites" near the bottom of the right side-bar, and then click on "More Links" in each list.

You might want to add some links to your own prescribed-evolution blogs. I noticed that your blogs have preformatted link sections already, because I see "Google News" and "EDITME" in link lists on your blogs. Instructions on how to create your own links are given on --- http://help.blogger.com/bin/answer.py?answer=110&query=links&topic=0&type=f

When editing this link section, you must be very careful -- for example, there must be no spaces between the quote marks and the URL link.

I am not interested in adding links to my blog. I wouldn't give you a nickel for most of them anyway. I sure as hell am not going to add a link to some dump that has banned me. Screw that noise. Let them link to me. I appreciate that you did. Who else has? I haven't bothered to look. Not many I'll bet. I am anathema to both camps and I like it that way. The PEH will be around when Darwinism and Christian Fundamentalism are each shabby little footnotes right next to the Ether of Physics and the Phlogiston of Chemistry.

Links suck. I have one message, a new hypothesis, and if no one wants to hear it they can kiss my ass to a purple blister. It doesn't even matter as it is preserved for all time on the shelves of the world's libraries. Got that? Write that down. I'm here primarily because I enjoy lampooning both camps, the Bible-bangers and the atheist chance-worshipping illiterate goons. They are all full of it right up to their eyeballs.

Carry on!

How is that for repitition? Is that repititious enough? Apparently not, judging from the posts I read.

I love it so!

Dr Davison, do YOU think the intelligent designer is a space alien, time traveler, god, or mr potato head?

Thank you in advance for what I am sure will be a well reasoned answer.

I love it so!

The short answer to your idiotic question is none of the above.

If you had read either my posts or my papers you would know what I think, that the God or Gods are dead, that they wrote the programs millions of years ago and then disappeared, and that I have called them the Big Front Loaders (BFLs). You would know all that and wouldn't have to ask. So I just told you and I hope you regard that as a reasoned answer. Are you by any chance Spravid Dinger? You see there is no way I can really tell so I just naturally assume every cowardly anonymous poster is Stravid Dinger, Dilliam Wembski's vicious, nasty little lap dog and the biggest lying two-faced phony in the history of the internet. And you know why I make that assumption? I'll tell you why, because it gives me pleasure - that's why. I wouldn't give a nickel for anyone that won't present his real identity. They are all equally swinish, nasty, insecure, unfulfilled, useless, unpublished nincompoops in my book. How does that grab you as if I cared?

In the meantime, kiss my ass, you ignorant cowardly boob.

Okay don't add brainstorms. Do you know what I think? I think you don't want any competition from a decent forum. That is what I think. You have one goal in mind, the same goal that most bloggers have. They want to be the biggest, hottest, most virulent item in cyberspace. So far you are doing a great job by permitting all kinds of crap. That is the ONLY reason you have so many visitors, most of whom can't post at a decent forum anywhere. You will have your moment of glory and then you will go the way all other such blogs have gone - down the tubes. I don't even know why I bother with this blog. The main reason is that Dinger hangs out here, one of the few places he is allowed. I also enjoy being able to attract garbage mouthed morons like meat attracts flies. It reinforces my convictions about the PEH.

Enjoy my unsolicited critique of your blog. Maybe that will change your mind about banning or at least deleting viciously personal insults. God knows you should. This blog is not helping your image one bit.

I love it so!

I think you should add a link to my blog too. I'll write new entries if y'all make some focking comments.

We'll see how my censorship style plays out.
