About

This blog is where I want to give my thoughts on different areas such as education, entertainment, science, politics, philosophy, and other cultural concerns. I am by no means an expert in any of these things but I am committed to learning by a process of critical thinking.

I am learning to think skeptically about the world around me. I may make huge errors in my  thinking, I may accept someone’s argument from authority simply because I respect that authority or favor an idea because of frothy emotional appeal. Whatever position I take, I will try to make a case for it that does not rely on these or other fallacies. This process should always be ongoing in that I will never be at a point where I can say, “there, I’ve completely eliminated fallacious thinking.” All we can ever do is continue striving toward intellectual honesty by questioning ourselves and our sources.

The time we live in is most well suited to the pursuit of truth the world has ever seen. I intend to make use of that and I would encourage you to do the same.
