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.

Another victory in Florida

I recently reported that the Nassau County school board in Florida was going to vote on a resolution opposing the dogmatic teaching of Darwinism. Florida Citizens for Science now reports that the resolution passed unanimously and that a total of ten Florida school boards have now passed such resolutions. I previously reported that two other county school boards in Florida passed similar resolutions unanimously.

Judge Jones, whose Dover opinion said, inter alia, "we will enter an order permanently enjoining Defendants . . . from requiring teachers to denigrate or disparage the scientific theory of evolution," must be having conniption fits.

I predict that what is going to happen is that the Florida state board of education will just drop the most controversial language from the proposed new standards for science education.

Dire warnings that universities and businesses are going to discriminate against Florida and Floridians are unfounded. Universities compete very hard for the best students and are not going to discriminate against top students from Florida just because the Florida state science standards are not sufficiently pro-Darwinist. And businesses have many other far more important factors to consider in deciding where they are going to locate.

Another such "victory" and your cause is lost.
