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.

Behe slams Judge "Jackass" Jones

In a review of Ken Miller's new book "Only a Theory: Evolution and the Battle for America’s Soul," Michael Behe says,

At a number of points he lovingly quotes Dover trial Judge John Jones, either not recognizing or purposely ignoring the fact that Jones’ opinion was pretty much copied word for word from a document given to him by the plaintiff’s attorneys; there’s no evidence that Jones comprehended any of the expert testimony at the trial — even Miller’s own testimony. Miller even quotes the passage from “Jones”’ opinion which blatantly mischaracterized my testimony, placing in my mouth words that the plaintiff’s attorney had actually spoken. But even that has been gone over many times; if you read the newspaper and some blogs, all this is very old hat.

These Darwin-zealots seem to me to be getting hysterical. Now it's a "battle for America's soul" according to Ken Miller: Edward Humes said the same thing, in his book Monkey Girl. John Derbyshire cries that ID is a threat to civilization. Wow.

Miller seems to be pretty unscrupulous. He has gone around spreading misrepresentations about Michael Behe's views.But perhaps he's not quite as untrustworthy as PZ Myers, who was dumb enough to call Behe "a pseudoscientific fraud" on his blog, May 3, 2007.

Stupidity, thy name is PZ. So perhaps this rumor is true:

One PZ cried, "There's a hole
In the ground! And made by a mole?
But it might be my ass,
So I'll carefully pass:
Or I'll stomp on my butt with my sole."
