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.

"Academic freedom" bills protect objective teaching of co-evolution

Co-evolution presents one of the biggest challenges to evolution theory. For example, some parasites do not just kill or paralyze their hosts but make dramatic changes in the host's behavior. Multi-host parasiticrelationships have no apparent evolutionary pathway. Using wasp sex pheromones for attraction, a species of orchid is pollinated by only one species of wasp. Some mutualistic relationships require simultaneous mutations(sometimes whole groups of mutations in each species)in two different species at the exact same time and place. Co-evolution represents the most complex and most unlikely adaptations in nature. For more details, click on the two blog post label groups on Non-ID Criticisms of Evolution---the original such group and the new #1 such group (Post label groups are listed in the left sidebar of the homepage)

It is certainly a complex relationship but that can be said when there is more than one factor in an equation. doesn't make the equation unsolvable but does mean you better show your work.

WHAT? What is your point?

well consider newtonian physics, great for simple problems but fails in more complex relationships where one has to go on to an einsteinian level.

OK, Lazarus, I will interpret your statements. Most or many Darwinists do not recognize that co-evolution can be far more complex and demanding than evolutionary adaptation to widespread fixed physical features of the environment --e.g. air,water, and land. These Darwinists grossly oversimplify co-evoluton by describing it as, say,mere"mutual evolutionary pressure." The difference between the two kinds of evolution is like the difference between Newtonian and Einsteinian physics.

Did you read the articles and comments in those two post label groups? You might learn something.

Larry thank you for your kind thoughts. I treasure my learning curve. God bless you.
