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.

UK schools drop Holocaust to satisfy Moslems

A recent UK news article says,

Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils, a Governmentbacked study has revealed.

It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial.

I previously reported that a recent poll of UK Moslems showed that 23 percent did not even know what the Holocaust was!

This growing taboo against teaching about the holocaust has a parallel in taboos against teaching about evolution and criticisms of evolution. All of these taboos create ignorance and teach that arbitrary censorship is OK. Spoonfeeding and brainwashing students about science, history, etc. is unscholarly and anti-intellectual.

I understand, according to FTK, you thingk the Holocause was exagerated.

So how many dead Jews would be an acceptable number?

5 Million?

A few less? Mayber Three Million?

No matter.

Israel has nukes now, so no one is ever going to get away with it again you ignorant swine.

Methinks they do protest too much.

See the pamphlet "The Nazi Roots of Palestinian Nationalism and Islamic Jihad" (also available printed from HorowitzFreedomCenter.org, for a small donation).

What I am saying is that a "systematic" holocaust was impossible because the Nazis had no reliable way of identifying Jews and non-Jews. Also, despite claims that official holocaust history is based on "meticulous" Nazi records, there has been a wild variation in the official death counts for Auschwitz, from 1 million to 4 million.

Instead of just insulting me, you should read this blog's articles on the subject -- they are listed under the labels "Holocaust revisionism (1 of 2)" and "Holocaust revisionism (2 of 2)" in the post label links in the left sidebar. You might also be interested in the articles with the label "Darwin-to-Hitler."

I think that dropping controversial subjects from school are as dangerous as embracing the Patriot Act, and banning the First Amendment. I got an email yesterday "In rememberence" of the Holocaust victims: the figures are staggering:
6 Million Jewish people
10 Million Catholics
20 Million Russians
1900 Priests

The number is also probably scewed with the number of Jewish converting to Catholism to prevent themselves from being arrested. Do I blame anyone for self preservation? ABSOLUTELY NOT. I'm 1/4 German and feel that the atrocities of WWII cannot be forgotten. My Uncle fought in Patton's brigade, in the army and I SAW the undigital photos of the concentration camps. Time/Life Magazine offered him thousands of dollars for those photos-but my Uncle's memories and his sense of duty to his country could not be bought.

My father ran his own platoon in the south seas of Japan, defending the US. He was a war hero.

Does any of you condone the terrorist activity of 9/11? How can we possibly forget the planes flying into our financial capital of the US, and killing people who were just going to work.........
And, for the record, they purchased MILLIONS in United Airlines put options. They PROFITED off killing Americans! If you were S7 licensed and could speak Arabic, the SEC was paying people to uncover the atrocities.

How can we possibly forget over 36 MILLION people dying? Or condone it? I am proud to be an American and proud to be from the breadbasket of America. I believe in religious freedom, and most Muslims are peace-loving people. But, I think that the people who are offended the most are the ones who don't want to acknowledge white people dying. The war crimes of WWII weren't carried out against Muslims.

Hitler was JEWISH-he HATED his father for refusing to send him to art school. He was a sociopath, and most of the people who were top Nazi officials WENT TO CHURCH EVERY SUNDAY. The Catholic church NEVER excommunicated Hilter. There was a Jewish roundup in the shadow of the Vatican, and Pope Pius the 12 refused to give those people sanctuary. I realize that Itlay was an Axis power, however, the Vatican is the smallest country in the world. The present Pope had Nazi affiliations.
