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.

ID in Awake! magazine

The April 2011 edition of Awake!-- a magazine of Jehovah's Witnesses -- has an article ( page26 ) describing a special glue secreted by the sandcastle worm that the worm uses to build its tubular house of particles of sand and shell. The glue hardens quickly underwater. Synthetic versions of the glue are also discussed.

The article then asks "did the sandcastle worm's unique glue come about by chance? Or was it designed?"

Of course, many ID arguments are much more sophisticated than this. But JW's are mostly creationists and therefore tend to be easily persuaded by ID arguments (probably many JW's consider ID arguments to be blasphemous because these arguments imply doubt of God's word --to hell with Dover Judge"Jackass" Jones' ruling that ID cannot"uncouple" itself from creationism) In a recent opinion poll --only 8 percent of JW's agreed with the statement,"evolution is the best explanation for the origins of human life on earth."

And JW is not a minor sect -- I see Kingdom Halls all over the place. Yet Darwinists tend to ignore JW --and 7th Day Adventists and Mormons --when claiming that large Christian sects accept evolution.
