I play guitar, write, produce and teach music. I Love jazz, rock/metal, pop, middle eastern, orchestral/soundtrack, and a bit of electronic or chilled ambient. In several bands as well as doing my own solo thing.
Apart from the music I'm really into learning stuff...currently;
Pop-science (physics, evo bio & cosmology)
Atheism & Philosophy
My other big current addiction is the Arabic language and have been studying it for about 2 years now, and am now doing classes at Uni in it.
I'm also a big fan of D.C comics with Superman being my fav and Batman a somewhat distant 2nd, however the Dark Knight just may well be the best superhero/comic book movie ever. I can't believe I typed that...Richard Donner forgive me..
That's about it really...I'm constantly trying to motivate myself to get into shape, yet am consistently failing, but when I can psych myself up swimming is good, so is jogging and badminton.
That is Meeee the Beeeebeeee
Why are you here?
I'm here because about 3 years ago a switch was flipped in my head and I deveolped this hunger for comparative religion and the sciences.
I've always been skeptical of organised religion and never considered myself to be religious or believe in god perse. But I was one of those "i guess I believe in a higher something" wishy washy types...you know the ones that really don't give it any thought, and are either too scared or apathetic to do so.
Well I started giving it some thought. I read a ton of books, tried wrapping my brain around some seriously tricky (for my artsy brain) scientific ideas, moral/ethical issues and studied on and off various religions.
I began to see clearly that many of the things I do really care about and believe in are secular, non-religious and generally atheistic. I also saw the danger more clearly than ever that religion can be.
I'm here to meet people who think along these lines. I know all the jokes about cats and herding, but if we can come together a little and organise in a friendly way then maybe the rest of the world wont put us on the same page morally as kiddy fiddlers and terrorists!
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
