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.

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.

Kansas elections are a tempest in a teapot

The Kansas primary elections for the state board of education are being nationally watched with the interest normally reserved for presidential elections -- see here and here. Even the early returns are being watched. And good grief, these Kansas elections are just the primary -- not the final -- elections for the board of education!

Anyone who thinks that the futures of Darwinism and challenges to Darwinism depend on the outcome of these elections is living in a dream world.

Also, I am wondering why we have not heard more from those who are most affected by this controversy, the public-school students themselves. I know that if I were a public-school student, I would want to be taught both the weaknesses and strengths of Darwinism so that I could understand what the fuss is all about.

Who is trying to eliminate scientific criticisms of Darwinism from being taught. The problem is that the pro-censorship of science group wants to present superstition as science.
