Hi,

I just surfed in from CSICOP. Your site is a terrific discovery. I am a science teacher, Freethinker, and a committed skeptic. I live and work in Lubbock, Texas; the dark heart of the fundanutalist empire. This places me in the front line of the battle against Creationism, superstition, and every related species of unreason and insanity. A poll by the local newspaper here found that something like 60% of our residents favor creationism over evolution. Ritual abuse allegations and conspiracy theories are also very popular in this area. I know a state certified biology teacher who is an ardent creationist. He is also a football coach (I suspect that you're not surprised by this), though not a very successful one.
I write a column, "Post-Rational" for the North Texas Skeptics newsletter. "Post-Rational" lampoons, ridicules, and otherwise abuses and offends non-reasoning humans. You can catch the most recent version, which trashes conspiracy theorists, on the NTS website at:

My next column targets Art Bell, Area 51, and black helicopters, among other things. You'll hear from me again, if the good Christian people of Lubbock don't burn me at the stake first. I'ld love to hear from you.

Jimmy Reynolds
