I was here several months ago but I’m back. What should I write about myself? Religiously, I’m an easy-going agnostic. Politically, I’m an independent moderate. I have a few select positions that reflect Republican conservatism. In other areas, I probably come across as a Democrat. All things considered (along with the degrees to which I value them) I am probably just left of the political center. I’m a philosophic pragmatic relativist. I believe that there are very few, if any, absolutes – and in time, my opinion on the degree to which that comment is accurate might change. I believe that people should be taught critical thinking skills – not what to think but how to think. In the area of ethics, people should be encouraged to think for themselves – not blindly follow any old religious book or contemporary charismatic individual. I understand that there is no perfect political talk-show host but I prefer Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann to Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. More later.
