I'm going to keep my calendar free in 2010 for your visit to Australia! Thankfuly I live by Bondi Beach in Sydney so I'm fairly sure you'll be visiting my neck of the woods.

Given how much free entertainment and education your show has given me I'll definitely be donating some of my hard earned colourful plastic Australian money to your trip. 

BTW - does anybody have any idea why an unusually high number of fans come from Australia - or is this bias creeping in?

They seem to be quiet popular on both sides of the Tasman.

"How much?" said Arthur.
"None at all."

I loved the interview with Steve Schafersman.
He is very bright and seems to have all his facts at his fingertips.
I could not find a Wiki page on him so....creating one this weekend.  :)

Just an update on this.
I have received a reply from Steve Schafersman and am awaiting his blessing to create a Wiki page on him.
As soon as I receive his response I will create this page.
After hearing the podcast interview I tried looking him up but found very little about him.  He is very intelligent and is making great strides in preventing creationists from injecting their false 'language' into the science textbooks for Texas schools.

I will post an update once I get his blessing...in case anyone cares.  ::)

Is it really an unusually high number?  Like any English-speaking country we are pretty highly represented on all web communities I read: flickr, digg, slashdot, etc.

I care. Sounds like a good thing to do.

Wonder if he has his own Conservapedia page?

Got an email from him today and he is fine with me creating the page.
I will post a new topic on it once it is finished.
I found this man fascinating in the work he does to keep creationism out of textbooks and was shocked to know although he has been in this business for over 20 years, nobody has created a Wiki page for him.
I would be honored to do so.

If anyone cares to add to it please let me know.

SQ, I'm about to send you a PM about the Wiki page. OK.
