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.

Nick Matzke is a dodo

Nick Matzke is a former Public Information Project Director of the National Center for Science Education and was an advisor to the plaintiffs in the Kitzmiller v. Dover case. In a recent post on Panda's Thumb, he wrote,

To a first approximation, if evangelicals become OK with evolution, then the evolution fight will be over and the evolutionists will have won, in the Western world, at least.

Sheeeesh

The thing is there is no creation-evolution controversy within the scientific community. The controversy is between science and basically the fundamentalist christian community.

Saying that over and over again does not make it true, doofus.

You are right Larry. What makes it true is that it IS true.

If it were in fact true, bozo, then my statement that saying it over and over again does not make it true would be meaningless.

No Larry actually you are right. Repeating something doesn't make it true. My statement is true because 99.99% of the world's scientists accept evolution.

Agreed. Whether or not something is true is completely independent of how often someone affirms or denies it.

Then what was the point of the statement, "The thing is there is no creation-evolution controversy within the scientific community"?

The point? The point is that scientists do not dispute evolution, only religionists. Likewise historians do not dispute the Holocaust, only anti-semitic cranks.

What does that have to do with Anonymous's statement, bozo?

How the fuck should I know? Ask gary, he's the one that said it. At a guess, he was jumping to the conclusion that you were actually claiming that there was something wrong with Nick's statement. However, since you have refused to say what exactly is wrong (if anything) with Nick's statement and you have censored all my attempts at guessing, it is unclear whether he guessed correctly.

>>>What does that have to do with Anonymous's statement, bozo?<<<

Why the fuck should it have anything to do with my statement, moron? You for some unexplained reason asked me what gary's point was, and he responded. Funny how you refuse to explain your own points, yet demand that people explain other people's points. We're not fucking mind readers, jackass.

Bozo, this whole discussion has been pointless. The fact is that Nick Matzke made a very stupid comment, and all I did was point it out.
