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.

This evil genie belongs back in the bottle


"OLD CHIPMUNK CHEEKS"


Celebrating Darwin's birthday was bad enough, but now the Darwinists are even celebrating Darwinists' birthdays. The blogs of both Fatheaded Ed Brayton and Greg "Osama bin" Laden have posts wishing a happy birthday to "Genie" Scott, director of the National Center for Science Education [1] [2]. Like typical name-droppers, Brayton and Laden call her by the familiar name "Genie" -- most people call her "Eugenie."

Genie is probably at least partly responsible for the unconstitutional promotion of pro-Darwinist religious views on UC-Berkeley's "Understanding Evolution for Teachers" website.

I also discuss Genie Scott's shenanigans here.

Wikipedia says that Eastern Chipmunks use cheek pouches to transport food (like other chipmunks) and also dirt that they have excavated from their burrows. The Chipmunk Place says,

This species is single-minded in its food gathering, making trips from tree to storage burrow almost continuously. It was estimated that over three days one chipmunk stored a bushel of chestnuts, hickory nuts, and corn kernels.

That's because she's a personal friend. Most other people call her "Ms. Scott" or "Dr. Scott".

I like the name "Genie" -- that way I can call her "Evil Genie" Scott (or I could call her "Meanie Genie" or even "Meanie Eugenie").

Eugenie is "celebrated" for her lies about ID. The ignorant are easily taken in by them:

A Darwinist, lobbyist, Scott,
Declared, "ID is a plot
To get Adam and Eve
In the schools, I believe!
(Or I say, when I'm lying. Why not?)"

That's what I thought too, but it didn't work out that way. Trolls insist on sabotaging this blog by violating the following rules:

(1) No saying that someone is wrong without saying why.

(2) No lying about objective facts.

(3) No gossip about private affairs (except where relevant in the case of public figures).

Comment space is unlimited on blogs but that is no reason for me to allow this blog to be cluttered up with garbage.

Some lousy trolls posted some garbage here, so I turned on comment moderation to give them a time-out.

"Some lousy trolls posted some garbage here, so I turned on comment moderation to give them a time-out."

That's not your job, as i recall you specifically state that you value NOT moderating comments because other people felt that you were causing their blog to be "cluttered up with garbage." (which, considering the involved parties is something i feel to be considerably more likely.)

As far as your reasons to prevent people from posting:
"(1) No saying that someone is wrong without saying why.

(2) No lying about objective facts.

(3) No gossip about private affairs (except where relevant in the case of public figures)."

a) you fail to give reasons why ALL THE TIME (I will not cite examples, because they have been pointed out in the relevant threads multiple times.)

b) you lie about objective facts ALL THE TIME. (again with the not citing examples for the reasons stated above)

c) you gossip about the private affairs of people (primarily public figures) ALL THE TIME. (check out the categories of posts with people's names on them for examples, or this thread "I like the name "Genie" -- that way I can call her "Evil Genie" Scott (or I could call her "Meanie Genie" or even "Meanie Eugenie").")

Additionally, you tend to make up definitions of "gossip," "objective fact," and "reason" (that one especially) ALL THE TIME.

In conclusion, it is lucky that 1) you follow your own rules and 2) you seem to hold so strongly to your core principles. I am reassured about your character because of these things. (Not that I'm overly worried about that, don't get me wrong.)

And what if the point being made is that they are simply wrong - as in, what they have said is simply factually inaccurate? Does this mean the comment will be 'moderated'?

(2) No lying about objective facts.

Then you better go back and delete several of your own comments and blog posts.

(3) No gossip about private affairs (except where relevant in the case of public figures).

Actual gossip about private affairs, or things you have redefined as such?

Bozo, I define "gossip about my private affairs" as talk about my relatives, friends, where I live, how I live, my employment status, my reasons for leaving former employment, my sources of income, etc.. I have allowed pettifogging cyberbullying cyberstalking troll Kevin Vicklund to post information about my court cases because those are public records, but I certainly consider him to be nosy for doing so when those records have no bearing on the discussion.

Evidently because of her efforts to teach new positions to preachers, Eugenie starred as a ho being pimped by the goofy materialist "philosopher" Daniel Dimwit (Oops! I meant Daniel Dennett!), in the Beware the Believers video. Her belly-dance is on the video, and her song-and-dance could be:

I'm wiggling my belly for Dan,
That Dennett, my Materialist Man!
I'm a ho who can dance,
So the preachers will prance
For Darwin...and swing, if they can!

It's unfair to cast Eugenie as a ho: unfair to all hoes, since she is a notorious lying sleazebag, and works to persecute ID scientists.

They'd better not know that my name
Is Rat! It's true that my game
Is repeating the lies
That Eugenie S. cries
To the public. All rats do the same.

(This Darwinist, like Eugenie Scott and most other Darwinists, is a dirty rat. He lives in a hole in my wall, and is young enough to pass for an anonymous mouse. But wait until I catch his ass. -Jim Sherwood.)

There once was a lady named Scott,
who was known as a real big crackpot.
Her first name was Genie,
she was a real meanie,
and she told lies more often than not.

The latest news is that Old Chipmunk Cheeks is scheduled to give a lecture at the University of Central Florida titled, “Florida’s Academic Freedom Bills: Creationism du jour?”

I wonder if the UCF Dept. of Biology's "special speaker series" includes any critics of evolution or critics of dogmatic evolution education.
