My other alias. This is me, curious to others and a cipher to myself. And it can mean many other things which could all apply to me. The alliteration of words is tasty too...
I joined this site mostly because I've spent the last 6 months of work bored and exploring the hilarity of Conservapedia. Rational Wiki seemed like a natural progression once I had grown tired of my IP address being blocked. I really appreciate much of the humour that this site offers but wonder - is this the best rational people can do? To stand back and mock others? Maybe. But maybe this should be accesibly rational, after all, if you want the world to join you, it's probably best to reason with them, not mock them. So I decided to join this site, not to pledge an alliance to the 'atheist-clan', but to try and bridge some gaps, to make rationalization more accesible for the religious and to rationalize with the atheists about religion and spirituality.
As once was said "Only a Sith deals in absolutes". Maybe I read to much into that, but replace 'a Sith' with 'evil', and maybe you'll se what I mean.
Well, wish me luck!
ps. I believe Richard Dawkins has done more to damage the spread of rationalization and atheism throughout the world than any other man alive. His abrasive and unreasonable books do very well to alienate the spiritually inclined individual and push them further away from the methodology of science than they had been before. His no-holds-barred approach to anybody who seeks spirituality and his belief that Buddhism is an atheist philosophy make him entirely unapproachable and sometimes makes him seem irrational.
The analogy to 'fairies at the end of the garden' is poor, especially to anyone who knows about the complexities of life and the unexplained realities of science.
