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.

Why the secrecy about Comer ouster?

Ousting Chris Comer has backfired -- she has become a Darwinist martyr. Why did they want to get rid of her anyway? She was obviously powerless -- she couldn't even keep her job. And why all the secrecy about her ouster? The Texans for Science Education Texas Citizens for Science reported, "Chris was forced to agree to a public non-disclosure or no-comment policy regarding her termination from TEA" (I wonder how the TSE got this confidential information). Also, initially, the information for the Austin American-Statesman articles that first exposed the story was obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. I wonder why the anti-Darwinists in the TEA did not want to brag to the world about their great victory in ousting her for what appears to be a relatively minor offense.

A bureaucrat, Comer: "I sent
A flyer for Forrest! She's bent
On bashing ID
With her lies. Whoo-PEE!
And power to PZ! (I went.)"
