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.

Two Florida county school boards unanimously oppose Darwinian dogmatism

This article in Panda's Thumb reports that two county school boards in Florida -- in Clay and St. Johns Counties -- have unanimously passed resolutions opposing proposed language for the state science standards that calls for the dogmatic teaching of Darwinism (unfortunately, the St. Johns county school board did not put the resolution on the agenda in advance -- that would be illegal under California's Brown Act). It has been estimated that up to 12 Florida county school boards have passed such resolutions. Judge Jones must be having a conniption fit.

So they favor dogmatic promotion of creationism.

"My Darwin! He's gone!" So cried
A zealot, all misty-eyed:
"I've worshipped his beard,
And yet, as I feared,
His whole credibility's died!"

We Darwinists say, "What's science?
Any doctrine that has our alliance!
So although we've no proof
Of our dogma, we'll goof
With your kids: and force your compliance."

In old yesteryears, as his horse
And buggy ran in their course,
Our Darwin decreed
His sacrosanct creed.
Let's push it in schools, by force!

We fundies are here to stay,
We cheat and we lie and we pray!
For the truth matters not
When we attribute to GOD,
The unexplained things of our day!

See I can write crappy/witty(however you want to interpret it) lyrics too!

The faith of others matters not
The only true belief is in GOD!
When evolution's tools
Reveals us as fools
We'll petition and pray 'til we drop!

The Evilutionist would like to thank his creator, Mr. Anonymous for creative input

Thank you for resolving the vexing question of whether "Anonymous" is a given name or a surname. Evidently it is a surname. ;-)

"You're a fundie! A fundie!"(A shout
From a 'Darwin':) "I'll ferret you out!
Don't tell me you're not
From Robertson! Rot!
You're his tunneling 'mole', no doubt!"

I should comment some more on the origins of this paranoia. The Darwinists think every anti-Darwinist must be a "fundie."
