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.

Christian Science Monitor article on global-warming controversy

Many Darwinists have tried to lump together evolution skeptics and global-warming skeptics. A Christian Science Monitor article about global warming says,

Amid mounting evidence that temperatures are rising on planet Earth, the "skeptics" and "agnostics" are a smaller band than they used to be. Yet those who do still harbor doubts about a looming global-warming crisis are quietly continuing to test alternative ideas about how climate works and what, if not the burning of fossil fuels, might be causing the temperature creep . . . . .

. . . . . even critics acknowledge that science is a discipline that needs its maverick thinkers - and that the global-warming skeptics and their research provide a kind of reality check on the climatology field . . .

"To imply that any scientist who has questions about global warming is somehow part of an orchestrated campaign" by industry or interest groups greatly oversimplifies the spectrum of motivations among those outside the consensus view, says Annie Petsonk, a lawyer with Environmental Defense. "It is much more complicated than that."

History shows that science is a field in which it can be difficult to achieve consensus -- even when the question at hand has no public-policy implications. When the question gets tangled up with politics, economics, and lifestyles, the ranks of the unconvinced can thin far more grudgingly.

As usual, Larry makes no point whatsoever. Traipsing into inanity indeed. Maybe he got help and someone dragged him into the pyschiatric ward before he could provide us with another illogical and ill-informed rant.

Funny how fighting against science in one area is so often tied to fighting it in other areas, eh?

Hey Larry? If you want to know about science, why don't you go ask...y'know... a scientist?

Here's a place where you could actually get some decent science reporting.

Here's another

If those are a bit too complex, you could try here

or if they're not specified enough, try here

or for more complex but less specified information you could try here.

But getting your science from a reporter at the CSM - probably less good, y'know?
