Omega Society, a one-in-a-million
level high IQ society, and the
Society for Scientific Exploration, an
organization of scientists and scholars dedicated to the study of
unusual and unexplained phenomena.

He also has written for such publications as Skeptic, prompting considerable controversy with his proof of the general theory of evolution, and Termite, winning the Ronald K. Hoeflin Literary Prize for his proof of the ubiquity of extraterrestrial intelligence.

His current concerns, occasioning his serving as an advisor to the Lifeboat Foundation, include risks associated with scientific and religious dogmatism, human and non-human intelligence, and technological advancement without corresponding philosophical sophistication.
