What was your path to skepticism?

I picked up a copy of Skeptical Inquirer in the local community college library, read a debunking of a famous photo of the Loch Ness monster, and realized that I had only been getting half of the story.

What is the best day and time for you to meet?

I'm unlikely to make it, of course, but I might drop by someday.

Are you alarmed by the state of scientific knowledge among the general population in America?

Yes and know. I was more alarmed back in 1993, when REALL was formed. 14 years later, I think I've grown used to it. You can only stay alarmed for so long! But it would be nice to see things improve.

Are there issues or topics you'd especially like to discuss?

No answer yet


Just joining to see what the Chicago skeptics are up to these days. I'm down in Springfield, currently serving as chairman of the Rational Examination Association of Lincoln Land.
