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.

NY Times: "All the false news that's unfit to print"

As everyone knows, the official slogan of the New York Times is "all the news that's fit to print," but I think that my proposed slogan is more appropriate. Evolution News & Views says that the NY Times reported that ID proponents failed to respond to the John Templeton Foundation's call for ID research proposals but that a new report claims that the call for ID research proposals was never made.

"Fatheaded Ed" Brayton thinks that it was OK for the NY Times to give a false news report and that failure to submit unsolicited proposals is no different from failure to submit solicited proposals. Ed says,

So this whole stink is over the fairly irrelevant question of whether the JTF formally asked ID advocates to submit proposals, or whether ID advocates had merely failed to submit proposals for such research for the JTF to fund.

Also, NY Times science reporter Cornelia Dean is biased in favor of Darwinism.
