December 1999 is here, and as we all know, that means that soon we will be faced with an unavoidable deadline that might possibly cause major anxiety for some. No, not that deadline. I'm talking Christmas. What should I get for my girlfriend?

Speaking of anxiety, David Bloomberg recently visited a shrine to anxiety - The Conspiracy Museum. He wrote up a description of what he saw for this issue. If you’ve read The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson, you have an idea of what David encountered.

Our cover article, written by Karen Bartelt, discusses the supposed flaws of evolution, as described by Dr. Michael Behe in Darwin's Black Box. Given the recent actions of various state boards of education, I think it's probably a very good idea to know what some of the creationists believe.

Lastly, David has another edition of "REALLity Check," discussing an odd claim about "alternative medicine" proponents as well as the recent activities on the creation/evolution front.

Well, that deadline is fast approaching, so I think I'd better take a trip to the mall. See you in January 2000!
