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.

"Friend of Hitler" award was stroke of genius

The exposure of the asininity of the National Center for Science Education's "Friend of Darwin" award produced a tremendous response. It was a great spoof, among other things.

In a further "great spoof" I expect to see Larry present a posthumous 'Friend of Ghengis Khan' award to Mahatma Ghandi and a 'Friend of Torquemada' award to Richard Dawkins.

It could be "genius" only if you got the kind of response you wanted...

And by the way, it's considered bad form to crow about your own genius...

The Sitemeter showed that my blog traffic increased tenfold.

Is blog traffic what you want?

Did you know that the Westboro Baptist Church's website is one of the busiest Christian websites online?

What are you talking about? According to your sitemeter that claim is not true.

I was amazed that Larry claimed that his traffic had increased tenfold on the sitemeter. He was crediting the "Friend of Hitler" crap for this increase.

In checking the sitemeter I see that it is just one of Larry's delusions or an outright lie.

Of course this will not be posted as it violates the only real limitation that he has on this site; it proves him to be wrong.

Bozo, click on the Sitemeter icon at the bottom of the left sidebar of the home page, then click on "visits -- previous 30 days," and you will see a huge spike on March 6.

Yeah, the exact same day that Ed Brayton posted an article on his "Dispatches from the Culture War" blog on Scienceblogs. He linked to it as well. So, like I said, you need to send Ed a thank you gift.
