Hometown: South Miami
February 16, 2011
I've seen your meetup before, surfing possible meetup groups. Too busy, however. But the shark valley bike ride seemed like a nice experience...why not commune with an offshoot of our forbearers.
Agnostic...meaning I'm a wimp. My father would convince someone on her deathbed that God doesn’t exist. I would tell her how lovely heaven is...meaning I'm a humanist. Seriously, outside of scientific facts, "the rest is silence." (Shakespeare)
A "short" definition: secular, this "empirical" world; humanism, it's not pretty to bash your neighbor's head in. However, where would literature be without ideology? How boring Tolstoy's "Peace" would be? But this presupposes it's not your head.
Ditto to Box 2.
Taught for university in Germany. Now live in Miami; have an educational film company. Liberal politics, but somewhat fatalistic....although I have worked on democratic campaigns and probably will again. It's known as the Lucy/Football syndrome.
