I love exploring and talking philosophy, religion, and politics - I'm pretty strongly opinionated about those subjects and the arenas in which they meet. I love finding out about the newest scientific breakthroughs and find the universe and its possibilities to be beautiful. I guess I'm kind of optimistic about the future of the human race, against all odds. To that end, I'm a big supporter of transhumanist folks like Ray Kurzweil and Aubrey De Grey, as well as people who can vocally make science available to the masses like Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Oh, hey, I'm an ordained minister. I sometimes forget. I'm an atheist, but I wanted to be able to marry my friends if they didn't want or couldn't afford a cleric. I'm officiated my best friend's wedding this summer and it was a wonderful feeling.
