About this blog

As a child I was told that I asked "too many questions" and I still do. I'm curious. Too curious. I'm too curious about ideas that I was specifically told and trained not to be curious about: politics, religion, the truth, right and wrong - all the big ticket items. That's how I became interested in philosophy.

Many of us are told throughout our lives that we are not supposed to be discussing these matters. There is nothing else worth discussing. This blog is about everything truly important: life, death, ethics and human interaction, the nature of the universe and of man.

I've been studying ideas since 1998. Still, I don't claim to know any more than you about these things because honestly, I probably don't. But that doesn't stop me from wanting to learn more about them. That doesn't stop me from wanting to discuss them.

Therefore the intention of this blog is to discuss all these issues: questions I have and questions that others might have. I'll also make some claims that are true to the best of my knowledge. Please correct me when you think I'm wrong.

I will try my best to remain humble in the face of the truth and I encourage you, the reader, to keep me to that promise. If you want to frequent this blog, I'll ask that you do likewise.

I do have an agenda to push, in a sense. I'm a libertarian and a naturalist. Yet, that's not because I was trained, taught or indoctrinated to hold those positions. Rather, I have arrived at those conclusions via the only valid methodologies which I hold to as an axiom: logic, human reason and empirical evidence. Hence, I'm perfectly willing to admit it if I am wrong about libertarianism and naturalism. I have no concern for a particular position unless it is true. Are you likewise willing to admit when you are wrong?
