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.

New crackpot Darwinist outfit in UK

The homepage of the website of the British Centre for Science Education says:

The British Centre for Science Education (BCSE) is a new international group of individuals formed to act as an umbrella organisation, with the primary purpose of stopping the teaching of Creationism in UK state schools . . . .

The United Kingdom is faced with a highly organised, well-funded coalition of fundamentalist Young Earth Creationist groups . . . .

The creationist movement receives money and assistance from other parts of the world including Australia, through Creation Ministries International and Creation Research International and the United States, through such organisations and individuals as Answers in Genesis, the Institute for Creation Research, the Discovery Institute, and Howard Ahmanson, the American billionaire recluse who also funds the Discovery Institute . . . . .

In particular, the movement is targeting the teaching of biology, physics, geology and geography in British schools, either directly within the lessons or through guest speakers and Christian Unions. Their actions undermine or subvert the teaching of these subjects and can result in the failure of pupils to pass their exams . . . .

The position has become so serious that two well respected and established British universities, Leeds and Leicester, are introducing compulsory remedial courses to undo the damage done . . . .

. . . . the movement includes extreme political objectives, one of which is the replacement of democracy with a theocracy based on its extreme religious opinions. Howard Ahmanson was, for a quarter of a century, on the board of the Chalcedon Foundation which advocated the murder of those that disagreed with its fundamentalist religion, and the re-introduction of slavery. Ahmanson funds the Discovery Institute, which has a clear agenda to take political power and he is also deeply involved in the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies.

Your lack of a sense of humor is not my problem.

I see that you have guietly begun censoring again. What a hypocrite!

Now back to the subject. It seems that you neglected to show in this post why you, as a creationist crackpot, did not give any reason that we should consider the new outfit in the UK to be other than sensible.

Is there anything so simple that this dimwitted troll, the Court Jester, can understand it?

What has Bozo been censoring? It seems that the most damning stuff is what he posts himself.

I think that someone's theory that "Larry" is actually Ed Brayton might be right. Ed is just setting up a straw man. An opponent who is a laughable and delusional imbecile. Give it up, Ed. You are overdoing it. "Larry" is too far out to be believed. He is obviously a phony.

Now how about the one claiming to be his brother? That one seems very educated and rational. Why would he go along with the game? Any theories?

If you check carefully you will find that posts occasionally disappear. There seems to be no pattern to it. I can't tell if it is only unfavorable posts as there are very few favorable posts here. After all they are all responses to the idiot's madness.

No. It appears that Larry(?) is for real. He lives next to his aged mother in a condo that she owns as he is unable to take care of himself. He rarely comes out of his cave and this blog seems to be his only interaction with the world of the sane.
