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.

Location: Los Angeles, California, United States

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.

Don McLeroy disappoints

Don McLeroy, Texas board of education member and former chairman of the board who led the fight for balance in evolution education, is unfortunately a religious crackpot. For example, he wrote,

“Freedom is unique to the areas of the world that have been touched by Christianity."

McLeroy is just plain wrong here. For example, the US Constitution owes a lot to the influence of the democratic system of government of the Iroquois Confederacy of Six Nations.

Contrary to what many Darwinists claim, one does not have to be a religious crackpot to support balance in evolution education.

Benjamin Franklin once wrote in "Articles of Belief and Acts of Religion"

It is that particular wise and good God who is the Author and Owner of our system."

Founding Fathers believed in what McLeroy suggests...

The reality, very little in a small group of non-thesis believe in a "balance in evolution" concerning education.

Therefore, more likely than not, those who profess or have faith in God, who also believe in a balanced education will have more of an impact on public policy.
