This is my personal account and any posts or comments I make using it reflect my own opinion, and do not represent my employer or anyone else.
I speak English, 廣東話, فارسی, and , and can read Pāḷi, संस्कृत, and a smattering of other languages.
I have graduate degrees in electrical engineering and computer science. I'm also a dropout from school. Yes, it's possible to have graduate degrees and still be a dropout. That's just how awesome I am.
I used to teach logic and I'm writing a book on it. I try very hard not to argue with people online (what's that saying again about wrestling with pigs?), but if you argue with me, I claim the right to use your argument as a textbook example of poor reasoning.
My view of religion is an academic one which is purely evidence-based. What I know about religion, I learned from university professors and textbooks used in university courses. Most popular books on religion (both apologetics literature and anti-religious screeds) are full of factual and logical errors. If your view of religion differs from mine, instead of wasting your time trying to convert me, I suggest you write up your findings and get it published in a peer-reviewed academic journal in religious studies. Otherwise, I'm going to stick with the evidence as reviewed and interpreted by professional experts.
