Do we have a free will?

Maybe not, but it's really useful to pretend that we do, so for all practical purposes my answer is yes.

Are you religious, agnostic, atheistic etc? What do you believe? A) How does your belief shape your world/philosophical view? B) How do you view scripture/revelation? C) What is your opinion on evolution?

Somewhat apathetic atheist. A) I try not to let it shape my views too much- I am generally against dogma. B) It's cool but not part of my life. C) It's as true as any other scientific fact that has been thoroughly researched.

Do the ends justify the means? If yes, why? If not, why not?

I'm a big fan of kindness and fairness. If the means are good but the ends are bad, well... find another way. Unless you can't.

What is your political orientation (far left, left, center, right, far right…libertarian, apolitical etc.)

Slightly lefty

Have you ever stabbed somebody with a fork just because he/she didn’t agree with you?

I have prodded someone with a fork because she fell asleep.


I'm a grad student interested in how people form beliefs and opinions and how people then test those ideas and change (or fail to change) them. I'm interested in science, math, and beer.
