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.

Location: Los Angeles, California, United States

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.

Judge quote-mined Michael Behe

The original story -- along with my comments -- is here.

This story has spread to here and here.

I guess that's why you use it so sparingly.

Wow, Kronsteen, I've never seen the essence of all anti-ID arguments summed up so succinctly. With such powerful ammunition on the anti-ID side, it's a wonder everyone else hasn't just simply gone home, hanging their heads in shame. Even angry toddlers know: Darwinism is the answer.

Yep, Larry's back to trolling himself and posting anon in order to give the appearance of life here. He's also plaining clueless on what constitutes actual quote mining: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quote_mining

You stupid dunghill, here is what the Wikipedia article on "quote mining" says:

"Quote miners" are often accused of contextomy and misquotation, in an attempt to represent the views of the person being quoted inaccurately. For example, if a person being quoted disagrees with some position, a quote miner will present quotes that suggest that instead, this person is supportive of this position. Material that ostensibly bolsters this position is often taken out of context. Exposition that is at odds with the argument being made in the same text is excluded or otherwise obscured.

The expression is also sometimes used in a slightly weaker sense, merely meaning that a quote is being used to support an idea that the original author rejects. In this second case, even a quote which is accurate can be considered a "mined quote".

That exactly describes what Judge Otero did to Michael Behe.

As usual, you only show your lack of understanding.

It is good to see that you are citing a reliable source, such as Wikipedia. It is a shame you can't understand what they said.

In Larry's words: "my story" "is" "stupid."

And, as he states in the comments: "The truth hurts."

Also, "I" am a "stupid dunghill."

'nuff said.
