Dr Gerald "Teddy" Bear Citizen Science Guy

A Leaner Dr Bear Standing Pat
A lot of things make Dr Bear unique.

1. Like other science greats like Copernicus, Newton, Pasteur, Bill Nye, Sagan, Galileo and Einstein, Dr Bear has suffered for science. As a child, Dr Bear suffered at the hands of an anti-science pro jock teacher simply for having a love for science.

2. Dr Bear is the world's fattest astronomer and while that is unique there are other fat scientists.

3. Dr Bear is multi-talented in that he's a critically acclaimed cartoonist and social critic

The thing that sets Dr Bear apart is the fact that he is a citizen science guy. That means that Dr Bear is his own man. He is not affiliated with some corporation like Dupont nor is he associated with some corporate funded university. Dr Bear is his own man and the only dog he has in the fight is a big fat growling attack dog called the truth!

Visit Dr Bear at Debunction Junction and climb aboard the Truth Train.


  1. Good evening Fat Bastardo!!!

    Thank you very much!

    I'm not actually a professional astronomer, but I did have three years of college at NMSU, New Mexico State University where I majored in physics and astronomy.

    Unfortunately, I didn't finish my degree.

    I even knew Dr Clyde Tombaugh, the guy who discovered Pluto back in the 1930, and I have even been to his house, and one night and we looked at the moon and Saturn with his 9 inch reflector telescope, which he had built himself. This was back in 1969 when I was about 16 years old.

    Clyde Tombaugh grew up on a farm in Kansas, and back then, he was popular in his high school.

    But, something has gone seriously wrong in America over the years since then. It was back in the 1960s when I was in grade school and junior high school.

    I guess the problem started with McCarthyism back in the 1950s when I was just a little kid too young to know what was going on. And the quality of education started swirling down the crapper after "under God" was inserted into The Pledge of Allegiance and "In God We Trust" was put on our paper currency.

    That's when America started trusting God more, and stopped trusting it's own children. I was raised a Presbyterian when I was a kid, but even back then, I thought the Genesis account of creation was just a fairy tale. It sounded too "magical" for me.

    Yeah! Instead of saying "In the beginning" the Bible should have started out with . . . Once upon a time . . . like all fairy tales.

    I remember when I was 9 years old, my Sunday school teacher saying that I was going to Hell because I told her, I thought that natural selection and evolution was the method God used, or simply allowed to occur, and so, I was told that I was going to Hell because of it.

    Yeah! Nice thing to say to a kid.

    While all the other kids were happily singing "Jesus Loves Me" I began the think that Jesus hated me.

    Religion, and going to church never made me happy. I always felt depressed coming home from church.

    As I got older, I came to realize that it was all BULLSHIT!!!

    Of course, my younger brother and younger sister both sucked it up, like all the other moronic sheep in the flock.

    I'm the oldest of three. (Borg designation, first of three)

    My brother had it much easier than I did. So, I also learned that God hates the first born, and favors the younger brother.

    My brother was afraid of reptiles, and he hated my cactus garden, and back in the 1970s he was against sending people to the moon.

    I was a hippie, and my brother was a stomp, a goat-roper, a Rexall Ranger, and a shit-kicker, or whatever you prefer call fake cowboys. He was all hat and no cattle! A 10 gallon hat on a half-pint head.

    Yeah! That's my brother! Don't ya just love it!!!

    Now, I do have respect for real cowboys. I just don't like fakes!

    Speaking of cowboys . . .

    I once had a collection of poetry, all kinds of poetic verses about astronomy and the universe that was written by a cowboy.

    They weren't all that dumb. They knew all the constellations. The average cowboy back in the 1800s knew far more about the night sky than the average city dweller does today.

    Well, anyway . . . . .

    Thanks for posting this article about my new web bog.

    Yippee ki yay ki yo!!!
