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.

Coevolution discussed in comment thread on "Intersection" blog

I spend a lot of time commenting on other blogs and other websites in order to help spread my ideas, which I can't do well on this blog because this blog gets so little traffic. Unfortunately, the time I spend elsewhere reduces the time I have available for making new posts here. I figure that I might as well take advantage of these discussions I have on other websites by linking to those discussions here -- I am of course inviting others to join these discussions if they are interested. I have been involved in a long discussion on a comment thread on Chris Mooney's and Sheril Kirshenbaum's "Intersection" blog on the Discovery magazine website. I entered the thread at comment #138 and most of the comments that follow are either mine or responses to me -- we are now up to comment #173. The main topic is coevolution, but there are also discussions about Ktizmiller v. Dover, Michael Behe, and intelligent design. I consider the dilemmas of coevolution to be among the biggest weaknesses of evolution theory.
