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.

Location: Los Angeles, California, United States

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.

New category for religious attiitude toward evolution:secularism

Religious attitudes towards evolution go by various names--theistic evolution,creationism ,New atheism, accommodationism, agnosticism , etc. Now I propose a new category ,secularism, that represents the complete absence of any religious attitude towards evolution (even agnostics have some kind of attitude towards the relationship between religion and evolution). I always wanted evolution and intelligent design to be like that

Generally this was how Gould characterized things in his book "Rock of Ages." That science is ever separated from the philosophical/theological concerns. I forget the exact term he used for this but it was shortened to NOMA.

NOMA stands for"Non-overlapping magisteria." It is a religious cocept.

How on earth is "New atheism" another name for "religious attitudes towards evolution"?

The are the complete opposite of one another!

It is notanother name --it is definitely a kind of religious attitude toward evolution. It scorns both theistic evolutionists and accommodationists
