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.

Iran to host conference on holocaust

An AOL news article noted,

TEHRAN, Iran (Sept. 3) - Iran said Sunday it would sponsor a conference to examine the scientific evidence supporting the Holocaust, dismissing it as exaggerated.

The decision came as U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan raised concerns with Iranian officials over an exhibition of cartoons about the Holocaust in Iran's capital, Tehran.

Arabs and Moslems have long complained that they were unfairly being required to pay for the holocaust by giving land to Israel, but until now they have not so openly questioned official holocaust history.

It is interesting that Iran chose to retaliate against the Mohammed cartoons -- published in Denmark -- by having an exhibition of cartoons about the holocaust.

This conference raises the profile of holocaust revisionism but unfortunately not in a favorable way. Similarly, the pope's seminar about the evolution controversy raises the profile of this controversy but not in a way that is completely favorable for criticisms of evolution, as the seminar appears to be biased against evolution -- at least three of the four principal speakers at the seminar are critics of evolution.

You're an invited speaker, right?

Interesting is a strange adjective here. Why is it "interesting"? Perhaps you could find a blander, more neutral word?

Can you find anything interesting or important to post? It looks like you are really reaching.

Interesting but breathtakingly inane.
