In this episode, Eugenie Scott said that the only qualifications to be in Project Steve is that "you have to have a PhD and your name has to be Steve."  So my question is, who let Steven Novella, MD in?  :wink:

The rules are actually not quite that narrow. I am a full time professor, educator, and researcher at Yale University. The way it was explained to me was that any advanced science degree is sufficient as long as you are a researcher with a full time academic appointment.

If your joking, you should always use a  :lol:  or a  :wink:, otherwise things could get ugly.

I really think that you do not understand the point of Project Steve.  It was designed to illustrate just how few PhDs are creationists.

Actually i do, i was replying to you Bort. I said that most phd's are quacks to show that Steve doesn't really need one, although it'll add to his already enormous credibility  :wink:
Praise Jesus.

More satellite stuff
« Reply #9 on: June 07, 2006, 11:25:02 AM »
In the email I sent about the satellite tracking web site http://www.heavens-above.com I forgot to include another nifty site that gives you a 3D perspective of the various satellites as they pass over the earth. It is interactive & you can pan & zoom, click on the satellite to get its ID info. http://science.nasa.gov/Realtime/jtrack/3d/JTrack3D.html

Another good space site is http://www.spaceweather.com which gives info on solar activity, asteroids and meteor showers. I have subscribed to their space weather email news to get notification of solar activity that might lead to displays of Auroras. They do have the option of signing up notification of events via cell phone. However living in the land of spotty coverage, I haven’t moved into the cell age.
