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.

ACSI v. Stearns (Fundy Schools v. UC) lawsuit loses

The story is here on the National Center for Science Education's website and here on the Questionable Authority blog. The NCSE article gives the false impression that the suit is just over the biology textbooks -- textbooks in other subjects have been involved, including textbooks in history and literature. I have discussed the lawsuit in several articles in this blog [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6].

The final decision appears to be a mix of rulings on the merits and dismissals on technicalities. It will take a while to sort out exactly what happened.

I am now commenting about the decision on the Questionable Authority blog. My first comment is here (comment #25 in the thread) and I have several following comments.
