A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches
" The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It
may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It
may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our
preferences do not determine what's true.
We have a method, and that
method helps us to reach not absolute truth, only asymptotic approaches
to the truth — never there, just closer and closer, always finding vast
new oceans of undiscovered possibilities. Cleverly designed experiments are the key.
-- "Wonder and Skepticism
", Carl Sagan
I am not sure how to describe myself. I guess when it comes to politics I am independent (or apolitical), but sound more social liberal most of the time when responding to such things. My husband and I are US veterans. In the end though I don't believe in any particular government or anarchy, and I really don't like politics. I just prefer the facts first over opinion.
I respect science and religious views in the aspects respect is earned. I am not sure if the two should mix in most ways. As such in cases of human history in it becoming a disaster to do so.
I am an agender ( or gender neutral) grey asexual, sex positive, grey romantic. When I must
identify other than agender I prefer to be referred as a tomboy.
I enjoy art of all sorts, and what may be considered nerdy or geeky things. Steam punk, cyber punk, and gothic subculture in general I find fascinating. Grey muzzle a bit too in intrests.
Mostly a bit of a determinist and possibly other times leaning toward Compatibilism
when given such things as philosophy questions and debate.
Freethinking secular humanist, skeptic, agnostic atheist, and an apatheist
I enjoy learning new things and exploring cultures. I find critical thought and even imagination important in exploring the world around me.
Love the way that nature and the universe works even in all the chaos. The rest I think just gets complicated.
