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.

"If you don't criticize Darwinism in our schools, we won't think in your church"

That's a common taunt from the Darwinists. Sort of along the same line as, "if you don't piss in our pool, we won't swim in your toilet."

Here is an article that says that church attendance can actually increase student GPA's! LOL I am not recommending church attendance, though, which I consider to be mostly a waste of time. The article says,

(Aug. 19) - If you want to boost your teenager's grade point average, take the kid to church. Or, a new study suggests, find some similar social activity to involve them in.

Researchers found that church attendance has as much effect on a teen's GPA as whether the parents earned a college degree. Students in grades 7 to 12 who went to church weekly also had lower dropout rates and felt more a part of their schools.

On average, students whose parents received a four-year college degree average a GPA .12 higher than those whose parents completed high school only. Students who attend religious services weekly average a GPA .144 higher than those who never attend services, said Jennifer Glanville, a sociologist at the University of Iowa.

It is?

I've heard "If you don't pray in our schools, we won't think in your church" Substantively different.

Lying does not become you Larry

Let's just call it "poetic license."

Let's not.

If I were you, I'd censor the whole thing.

Don't you know that this is a "no censoring blog", which in Larry's sick mind means that, while he can censor anyone for any reason, no one can censor him. This is his special vanity place, after all. Besides, Larry is incapable of admitting that he has misbehaved, lied, misunderstood, or been deeply unpleasant. Still, you are right. He lied here, and it isn't poetic license, as Larry has made it abundantly clear he doesn't know what poetry is (not surprising for a guy who doesn't know what a goal is).

Actually, I think I got the other maxim wrong -- I think it goes like this: "We don't swim in your toilet, so please don't piss in our pool." So the counterpart should go, "We don't think in your church, so please don't criticize Darwinism in our schools."

>>>>> it isn't poetic license, as Larry has made it abundantly clear he doesn't know what poetry is <<<<<

"Poetic license" isn't just about poetry, idiot.
