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.

Hitler and Judge Jones are now official mascots of this blog

* ID cannot uncouple itself from its creationist, and therefore religious, antecedents.
-- Judge Jones, Kitzmiller v. Dover opinion

If you're really bored, a fun game to play is Six Degrees of Godwin.
Take a topic - any topic - and see how quickly you can relate it to Nazis using legitimate topic drift methods. For example: a discussion about computers will eventually lead to discussions of keyboards and which are best, followed by a lot of complaining about the Windows key on 104-key keyboards, leading to complaints about Microsoft, forcing the standard MS-vs-government flamewar that I'm sure you're all aware of, leading to attacks on Microsoft's "fascist" tactics by one side or another, which will force the other side to start talking about the differences between fascism, capitalism, and, of course, Nazism! The fun never stops!

Another lame post. Yawn. Not that I had high expectations or anything.

It's odd that Jones managed to claim that ID has creationist antecedents. Behe, who had believed in Darwinism previously, was influenced principally by biochemist Michael Denton; who questioned Darwinism in His book Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, in 1985. Denton was not, and is not, a creationist. There are various theories that may be called ID, but Behe's is the most prominent.

Yes, Judge Jones' bible-to-ID stereotyping is absurd. It is based on Barbara Forrest's conspiracy-theory book, "Inside Creationism's Trojan Horse." Judge Jones is a stupid jerk.

More brilliant analysis by Larry. And apparently Jim's never heard of the teleological argument or Thomas Aquinas.

A concise and whimsical teleological argument was offered by G. K. Chesterton in 1908: "So one elephant having a trunk was odd; but all elephants having trunks looked like a plot."

All this is so much fun!

Actually I think Hitler had more in common with a very Marxist scientist I know who works on Artificial Selection with fruitflies. I can understand why God-loving and God fearing people can take umbrage with Darwinism now. Hitler's eugenics then would be compared to God's hand in Natural Selection, which is ghastly right?
ergo Natural Selection cannot exist, or God would be fascist.... or would be Marxist??? Darn...
