Against the Absurd, defiantly laughing.

Post by Plaffelvohfen » March 12th, 2019, 9:58 pm

Greetings everyone, been here a few days, nice crowd with interesting discussions, it's time I introduce myself. :)

What to say about myself here... Existentially an optimistic absurdist, physically a determined humanist, so you'll usually find me left-leaning politically, and I still seek an objective Morality somewhere God isn't... Yeah, it's the rock I chose to push up my hill, with the occasional Sam Harris Podcast and my personal "Hitchen's Best of", between prog-rock sessions... ;)

I'm pathologically curious and hopefully my condition is incurable... I don't mind going off the usual roads and I may get lost sometimes, please be indulgent... I used to visit debate sites but since most are, say, lacking moderation, I tired of fallacy abuse and trolls... It was a formative experience though, even considering the facepalm imprints crowning my forehead...

So I found myself here, looking for a nice place to actually explore Knowledge, whatever it may be, in a convivial ambiance and hopefully create a fruitful collaborative learning experience!

Also I'm French-Canadian with an occasional smiley addiction problem... :oops: Just wanted to be honest upfront...

Adversus absurdum, contumaciter ac ridens!!

Again, welcome! Lots of different interesting people post here with varying views and backgrounds. I've been hanging around here for many years, this seems to be most civil discussion site of them all (that I have visited). Scott does a great job maintaining the peace and order.
