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.

Is Intelligent Design a belief system, or a scientific field of study?

It can be either. ID can be the belief that living things are too complex to have evolved by Darwinian mechanisms or to have spontaneously appeared in the first place. It can also be the study of the extent to which that belief can be scientifically supported. Too many people ignore or fail to see this difference. Also, it is extremely unscientific and anti-intellectual to assume in advance that that belief cannot be scientifically supported.

ID is an attempt by creationists to inject their religious beliefs into the public schools. When the courts said (correctly) that creationism is unabashed Evangelical Protestantism, the creationists merely removed all the overt references to the Judeo-Christian God and replaced them with an otherwise unspecified "Intelligent Designer" (but we all know who they mean, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more).

And that is one of my major objections to "Intelligent Design". It is based on a lie, and we all know who the Prince of Lies is.
