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.

Blog debate about Dover case

The considerable amount of time that I spend answering trolls on this and other blogs unfortunately greatly reduces the time I have available for writing articles for this blog.

I am now debating the Kitzmiller v. Dover case with a troll on the Aetiology blog. The debate starts here.

Larry again shows us he doesn't understand plain English -- he doesn't even know what a troll is.

To me, a troll is someone who makes stupid comments -- like yours, dunghill.

Then, Larry, I guess, by your own definition, you're a troll.

A rat, that nested very near
A keyboard, said, "I'm living here

To get the Net, to sniff, and click
To Larry's blog! My dirty trick?

To say he banned some dude: or try
Some other long-disproven lie;

For Darwin tells me that to steal
And rip's the all-creating deal!

So thus I'll foster wonders, see,
By creeping low and lousily

Along the Web. My mindless goal?
To bite at Larry. I'm a troll!"

Guess that disproves the theory that Vogons are the worst poets in the universe, then.

Correction - third worst. But Jim definitely proves it's actually the fourth worst.

On wikipedia: An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial and usually irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion

Stupidity isn't mentioned, but if that were the case, then Larry would be a troll, especially on his own blog!

Anonymous, you wrote, "Correction - third worst. But Jim definitely proves it's actually the fourth worst."

Who are the other two? Larry? Is Jim Sherwood only third? Of course, Vogons are a people -- Jim is, fortunately, only one person.

Well, if memory serves, the second worst poetry was thought to be that of the Azgoths of Kria, and the absolute worst poetry of all was by Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings of Essex. However, I think all those have now been bumped down one place, thanks to the discovery of Jim's talent.

Why don't you just have someone write up a script that would cycle through various rants about Judge Jones and Kitzmiller v. Dover? It would save time, and readers wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

I think that's what he's doing.

Looks like you are really getting frustrated in our debate over on the Aetiology blog. I bet that you are not accustomed to facing a debater who is so good at rebutting your arguments.

He has no way of getting accoustomed to this as it has not yet happened. In contrast, you face such people daily.
