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.

I'm always kicking their butts -- that's why they don't like me

The title of this article was borrowed from a statement spoken by Gov. Schwarzenegger in a TV campaign ad.

I hijacked a blog thread and completely demolished the arguments of those who are trying to block the addition of the book "Of Pandas and People" to Wikipedia's "List of banned books".

The following article on this blog has background information:

Banning banned ID book from lists of banned books

A comment on another blog thread on this topic says:

Larry makes a contribution in this thread, I think, by posing an argument for a bogus conclusion, but an argument that I think really is not adequately dealt with by the rationales for these lists that have been articulated up to this point. I'll get to that when I can -- but it might not be for another month or so.

So I appreciated the contribution made by Larry's insistence on his basic logical argument.

So you believe that it is OK to "hijack a blog thread"? You certainly have no right to complain when we change one of your subjects to a discussion of why we are always kicking your butt.

Yes, it was amusing watching you get your ass kicked repeatedly this weekend, Larry. Go sweep up your chiclets - maybe they can be re-used for a new set of dentures.

Larry is definitely on a downhill trend. First trying to vandalize Wikipedia and now bragging about "hijacking a thread". At least this proves that the purpose of this blog is to fill his need is for attention, no matter how he gets it, rather than an actual concern for the issues he attempts to promote.

I repeatedly warned that impersonations are not protected by the no-censorship policy. Some people never learn.

What about your impersonations of your brother earlier on this blog and Panda's Thumb?

Actually, it was Ed Brayton's Dispatches from the Culture Wars where Larry impersonated his brother, not PT.

Kevin,

What's become of me? That's two mistakes already this week.
