This is blog is my public edition of my personal perspectives on science, philosophy, religion, atheism, ethics, and the future of democratic* intelligent life here in the United States.
Who am I? Well I’m not a scientist, sociologist, or politician. I’m just a building & remodeling contractor (ParadigmBuildingAndRemodeling.com, StairScapes.com & SummerStructures.com) who also works as business management consultant (ParadigmProjects.com) and a software programmer (360Difference.com). But the train wreck I watched our great country go though head right on into after 9/11 has woken me up and inspired me to speak up and voice my concerns and opinions.
I’m a freethinker…
Freethinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, privileges, or beliefs. This state of mind is not common, but is essential for right thinking. — Leo Tolstoy War and Peace
I’m trying to be empirical, data-driven, and evidence-minded. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, or criticism please feel free to post them as comments in the appropiate blog article or you can email them to me by clicking here
