Hi. I'm an ever-changing and growing, politically independent, easy-going, open-minded agnostic. Yet, I can also be quite a gadfly against those who engage in illogical and fallacious debate. I'm analytically minded (nit-picky) and skeptical - critical - of practically everything. Politically, I'm a moderate with strong positions on a few issues. I'm sympathetic to the Libertarian philosophy but realize that there are things that we should simply not allow. I believe in a very small, government-run, safety-net. The point is not whether or not to draw the line, but where to draw the line. I'm somewhat existentialist and stoic, but not perfectly so. With respect to right-and-wrong, I generally believe in situational ethics and contend that practically everything is relative. There are shades of gray and very few, if any, absolutes.
