I am interested in natural history (especially biological evolution), geology, and cosmology. I am also interested in the origins of religion. Oh yeah, and I like chess too. I'm primarily an e4 player. Right now the King's Gambit is a favorite. Also like the Giuco Piano and the Spanish game. As black play e5, the french, the Alekine's mostly. Need more practice against d4, but usually play a King's Indian when able to. Also need more practice against the Sicilian. I know enough about the game to realize that I actually know very little.
