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.

Judge Jones is hypocritical about "judicial independence"

It may seem hard to believe, but five years after the Kitzmiller v. Dover ruling, Judge John E. "Adolf" Jones III is still on the lecture circuit. Here is a recent lecture by Jones hypocritically titled, "From Scopes to Kitzmiller and beyond: lessons in judicial independence." I know that this lecture is recent because Jones said that the Kitzmiller trial testimony had concluded five years previously (my, how time flies). I say that the lecture was hypocritical because his blatant chumminess with the Kitzmiller plaintiffs' representatives -- e.g., plaintiffs' expert witness Barbara Forrest and plaintiffs' attorney Richard Katzke -- is not consistent with the idea of "judicial independence."

Judge Jones has falsely characterized criticism of his decision as just an issue of "judicial independence" -- as I have previously pointed out, some of his biggest critics have been Darwinist, atheist, or neutral.
