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.

Chris Comer had history of troublemaking

Evolution News & Views has the story here.

IMO the big controversy now over whether to retain the "strengths and weaknesses" language in the Texas science standards shows why the Texas Education Agency wants to maintain an image of neutrality. Imagine if the TEA were accused of not giving a fair hearing to proponents of retaining the "strengths and weaknesses" language.

IMO ousting Comer was a mistake because it has turned her into a Darwinist heroine and martyr. IMO the TEA should have retained her but kept her on a short leash -- with a choke-chain collar. The TEA could have really made things miserable for her, like making her regularly email out apologies for announcing the Forrest conspiracy-theory lecture (e.g., "I am really, really sorry. Really I am. Please forgive me.").
