"I have two preliminary comments. First, I find the metaphysics of "order" here very strange. Why on earth should we assume that reality would be "disordered" unless some "order" was imposed upon it?…"
For all of you who love astrophysicist Dr. Tyson. I, personally, think that Neil's talks are like stand-up comedy. Only better. He is the Carl Sagan of our generation. A true pioneer of science.See More
Student studying physics at New York University, trying to go on to a PhD and work on quantum gravity. I'm also very interested in philosophy and the history of science, both of which I pursue in my own time.
Philosophically I am a Quinean naturalist, a reductive physicalist, a determinist, an atheist, and a moral anti-realist, to cover common concerns. I also will beat you over the head with my textbooks if you are not a B-theorist about time.
I also consider myself politically involved, and am more or less a modern liberal along the likes of John Rawls, J.S. Mill, Amartya Sen, and others. I do not think markets are a priori intrinsically just, but I think that a posteriori a regulated capitalism is preferable. I am personally involved with issues relating to LGBT (I myself am bisexual) and Women's rights, climate and energy policy, and the ever-popular relationship of church and state. I also have an educated layperson's interest in economic policy.
Outside of the heavy stuff, I like music (particularly classical/art music, EDM, and metal), fast cars, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and every now and then a video game.
Why are you here?
Interested in connecting with other like-minded individuals and discussing "the movement," particularly philosophical and practical issues.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
Doctrine conflicted with science, and science won. Once I was old enough to start learning science, my religion didn't put up much of a fight.

Thanks for the kind words. As far as lesswrong goes, I think it is a really cool website. As far as the singularity goes, we will have to wait and see. I say this because I do not think that we can predict the future of humanity in any meaningful way (this is why the social sciences like economic have been so heavily criticized).
