Space.com - One of my scholarly interests is astronomy. This site is an excellent resource for astro geeks like me. This site also provides great wallpapers for your desktop or notebook PC!

Skeptic's Dictionary - I regularly lecture on the importance of being a good critical thinker and a healthy skeptic. This site is a good resource for alternative and empirical explanations for many abstract topics of interest.

Parapsychological Association -  Although I am a proud skeptic and empiricist, I also know that a very small percentage of paranormal phenomena via empirical explanations and scientific evidence. Parapsychology is a burgeoning sub-field of psychology that seeks to understand paranormal events. Check out this site for more information.

MarvelDirectory.com - I'm a huge fan of Marvel Comics. This site offers a great directory of nearly all of the characters in the Marvel Universe.

The Batman -  My all-time favorite comic book hero is The Batman, who has no superpowers and relies only on advance scientific skill, keen detective abilities, and a genius level intellect to solve problems and fight crime. I think he has the coolest and most well-developed collection of villains and the comic itself has stood the test of time. This link takes you to a very good Wikipedia entry on the "Dark Knight".

Five Major Misconceptions about Evolution - I am a major proponent of evolution theory, which is a theory that has overwhelming scientific support and is considered a statement of biological fact by the great majority of natural scientists, including scientists belonging to all three Abraham religions. This link will educate visitors on the biggest misconceptions with evolution theory and will hopefully encourage some to explore the beauty of this theory more, with a open and critical mind.

Frequently Asked Questions about Evolution - More excellent information about contemporary evolution theory.

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy - I am a philosopher at heart and I used this resource all the time during my undergraduate years studying philosophy. It provides wonderful information on various topics.

I AM AN ATHEIST - I am an Atheist. There are many misconceptions and hateful stereotypes about Athiests. Rather than being a hater and believing the lies, how about you find out what the truth is.

American Humanist Association - I study, promote, and live by a humanist philosophy concerning all things. I invite students and visitors to explore this link to learn more about humanist philosophy.
