Well, hi.

After highschool, I went out and met this buddhist monk, we had some decent conversations about the nature of the self. Before this, I used to agree with some of the pantheistic ideas of Spinoza, and although my parents tried to raise me as a Catholic, I was never into religion.

Over time I learned about the abstracting human mind for what it really is, and eventually became this extremist skeptic. I was 20 and most of my knowledge was theoretical, I was't sure of anything, yet I just couldn't help myself but to laugh at the imbecility of Plato. In this period, I studied maths on my own, learned about differential geometry and some others but at some point, I figured out how formal disciplines would never-ever provide me with the actual truth of this universe. So I studied the works of renowned existentialists for a while, improved my understanding of dialectics, evolution and all that jazz, and this wasn't long before I discovered the gross difference between theology, and philosophy - which I think is the only source of existential clarity.

Anyways, I don't really like to label myself, but yes, I am an atheist, and a theological noncognitivist, and of course, an anarchist -when I feel energetic. Nonetheless, I am usually a calm person Drinking Beverage

Well, that's about it, I hope to contribute when I can, and have some fun among you beautiful people. So thanks for having me Big Grin

Welcome!

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
