About me: I am new to RationalWiki as of June '09, but I expect to have lots of fun here fighting the cranks. My main interests are biology, reading fantasy/sci-fi, and poking fun at the opinions of anti-rational people. My favorite authors range from J.K. Rowling to Robert Heinlein to Ray Bradbury, and my favorite snark targets include George W. Bush and Jack Chick ([he writes these-> http://www.chick.com/catalog/tractlist.asp]). I am culturally Jewish and religiously Agnostic. I am also a grammar nut who thinks it's important to get the facts right; if you see an error on this page, point it out on my talk page so I can fix it. Someday, I hope to have more content on this page than userboxen.
Things I have to say:
"The sun will swell into a red giant in about five billion years, but this won't be a problem for humanity. If we haven't destroyed ourselves by then, we should be able to evacuate."
"If you believe the Universe is only 6,000 years old, I have a meteorite that is billions of years old to show you. I could even hit you with it if that becomes necessary."
"Reading the Harry Potter books and watching the movies isn't condoning witchcraft. It's living the good life."
"Please don't say discrimination against homosexuals is leading humanity to a perfect state; I like my utopias egalitarian with a side of tolerance."
Things other people said that I think are cool:
"Freedom is the right to say that two plus two equals four." ~George Orwell
