I've started this blog as a place for venting my thoughts about things that enlighten, enrage, excite or entertain me. I hope it may be of interest to others too, but simply saving my friends and family from suffering my constant gibbering will mean that this enterprise will have been a success and of great service to the cause of reducing suffering in the world.
So, a little bit about me..
- I'm a physical scientist.
- I'm male.
- My political views are generally liberal.
- My religious views are best summed up by Douglas Adams: "Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"
- My views are definitely not fixed. I don't take offence easily and try to welcome informed criticism of my ideas.
That will do as an introduction for now. I look forward to posting some more soon!
