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.

I don't think that even your sock puppets; Jim Sherwood and Michael, will give you any credibility after this episode.

They're going to have to change their little video -- Religulous (sp?) is now the number 1 documentary of 2008 (I'm not sure to what extent it really is a documentary, but hey, it wasn't my call; it's over at box office mojo).

Anonymous at @1 -- what episode are you referring to? Larry not having a DVD player?

I think we should get some sex into the movie, to improve sales. The redhead who appears in the Intelligent Design Rockumentary Redux video at YouTube would be great. Let's persuade her to do a striptease in the DVD, and sing. Then we'll have:

A redhead, who strips as she dances
And wiggles: "Selection and chance is
A notion that's shot!
But ID is so HOT
That sex is the thing it enhances."

Or if she won't do it, how about Carolyn Crocker? She's about 50, but might still be OK, at least without her glasses:

Our Carolyn, dancing while nude,
Might pout, "Old Darwin was crude!
But to counter his rot,
We have totally got
To show an IDist's no prude."

EXPELLED is a great movie. Quantum physicist Ulrich Mohrhoff, for instance, recommends it on his blog. Mohrhoff, like myself, is not a creationist of any variety, but is an ID proponent: in other words, he thinks that the analysis of evidence arrived at by ID scientists, is correct.

Primarily the movie is concerned with the persecution of scientists who are interested in ID or want to do research on the intelligent design hypothesis. The persecution is carried out by the notorious Eugenie Scott and her gang of miscreants at NCSE, and by the "official scientific establishment" in general, which imposes a dogmatic line if favor of Darwinism; a line of dogma which impedes original scientific research. It is not only forbidden to investigate intelligent design, but often to question orthodox Darwinist doctrine, on penalty of loss of academic positions, denial of tenure, etc.

'EXPELLED is a great movie.'

92% of the critics will disagree with you.

EXPELLED is a great movie, to those who are interested in a documentary that deals with ideas, and who are not so totally and gullibly ensnared by the conventional Darwinist/materialist line propagated by PBS, etc., as to be incapable of considering any information which tends to contradict that line. And at present, most journalists and movie critics are unfortunately among the conformists who have been told to abhor the movie, and who thus proceed to mindlessly dislike it.

But the times, they are a-changing: although gradually.

Thanks for emphasizing my biology credentials, Jim. BTW, please add "PhD" after my name.
