Meet The Bloggers

Melissa Lee  (a.k.a. LilaMae)
Melissa Lee (a.k.a. LilaMae)

Passionate defender of reason. Science geek. Sassy as all-get-out. South Park enthusiast. Lead Organizer for Minnesota Skeptics & co-author of this blog.

Erica M.

Co-Organizer for Minnesota Skeptics. Avid shoe enthusiast. Erica has amazing tales from her work experiences as a paramedic. She’s worked in the Middle East at the Saudi Royal family’s hospital as well as hog tied PCP addicts. Did she help catch Bin Laden, too? Probably.

Ted Meissner

Ted Meissner has been a skeptic his entire life. He does a weekly podcast called The Secular Buddhist, reads almost as much as his dog, meditates far less than his iguana, and 9 out of 10 doctors recommend him more than homeopathic treatment.

(And from the looks of his photo – apparently taken on the grassy knoll – he can tell you all about the JFK assassination.)

Brianne Bilyeu

Brianne is author of her own blog called BioDork, which we import out of the magic of WordPress! BioDork’s blog is “Thoughts from a Minneapolis-based nerdy liberal humanist progressive on topics such as science, skepticism, religion, politics, local and global humanitarian and equality efforts.” (Let’s be honest, she’s slumming it here.)

Craig Mullenbach

The current media contact and co-organizer for Minnesota Skeptics, Craig has fielded inquiries from local television stations and newspapers. When he’s not being skeptical or sciencey, he is creating [amazingly awesome] award winning photographs. Most impressive: he is a falcon.

Travis Peterson

Carries copies of Carl Sagan’s Demon Haunted World on hand for “true-believer emergencies”. Seriously. Ask him about it.
He’s not crazy. We love him.

Benjamen Johnson

Ben was raised Catholic, but by age 7 wasn’t buying it. After trying atheism, free thought, contrarianism, and other philosophies, he’s found skepticism and is excited about it. After his daughter’s birth, he quit his engineering career to become a stay at home dad. He passes his vanishingly small spare time by reading, woodworking, and blogging.

David Norris

David Norris is new to Minnesota Skeptics but we like him already. He’s one of those rare “right-brained”, creative skeptics, so his posts may require a nerd-translator.

David Naughton aka nihiliad

David Naughton was a skeptic before it was cool. Now he reasons only ironically. He writes software and prefers interfacing with machines rather than humans. David has no sense of humor. He also likes math.

Jesse Wilson

Part time student, full time skeptic and Socratic method devotee. Trying to change the world one conversation at a time, also pondering why anyone wouldn’t want to see Snow White and the Seven Samurai.

EVEN MORE MNSkeptics bloggers…
