SO IT BEGINS

I am starting this blog mostly because I HAVE A TON TO SAY ABOUT EVERYTHING, and I rarely have a large audience. Also, I've been meaning to start a journal of thoughts for some time, so this blog has a self-serving purpose as well.

This is a test post so I can learn how to configure and properly write posts, and so I can see what they look like on the blog page. My content will improve as I get comfortable with the format and process of posting, but to whet your appetite, here is a concise autobiography:

I am an antitheist/hedonist/absurdist as a means to cope with an existential crisis resulting from my realization that determinism/probabilism are the most likely models for reality after accepting scientific positivism as the best method for obtaining truth because of my studies in physics and chemistry. I am also prone to grandiosity because of hyper-intelligence (is this recursive?).

Here are some links to clarify the above sentences; it is probably only necessary to read the first paragraph of each page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antitheism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedonism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absurdism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Existential_crisis
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Determinism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Probabilism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Positivism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandiosity

Wikipedia is an exceptional site...

This blog will also contain commentary on the following topics when I feel like it:


  • Heroes Of Newerth!
  • Outdoor sports such as hiking, climbing, kayaking, surfing, and snowboarding!
  • Ultimate Frisbee!
  • Science fiction/fantasy (especially literature by Iain M. Banks)!
  • Philosophy!
  • Science!
  • Pretentiously refined and sophisticated opinions on music!
  • Politics (if I get angry enough to care)!
  • True urban adventure stories starring your hero, me!
  • Random thoughts for public evaluation!


Please comment; I will almost certainly respond if you provoke me intelligently!

  6. You sound just like me. I am classified as a "genius" because of my IQ and ability to learn exceptionally fast. I'm also interested in science, HoN, and Politics when the need arises. I'm going to follow you.

  7. Hmm, interesting description of yourself. I consider myself a bit of a determinist myself. I'll have to keep track of your stuff to see what you can come up with

  8. I'll take a quote from an old Batman episode towards Edward Nigma, by his old boss, "If you're so smart, then why aren't you rich?"

  11. At least you are not a sociopath! That is always a plus. How many nightmares do you get on a regular basis? How many when you were younger?
