About me

Hi! I’m Tejretics. I joined DDO back in 2015, where I was ranked #7 on the site and was on the Hall of Fame; with others, I migrated to DART in 2018, and was the first Voting Moderator. I’m from India, but am currently a college student in the US, where I study math and economics. I competed in World Schools in high school, and have competed in British Parliamentary and APDA in university. I’m reasonably familiar with college-level Policy (NDT/CEDA) and high school PF too.

I am a moral realist, an ethical intuitionist (generally agree with Huemer on metaethics), and a utilitarian (of the Sidgwickian kind). I think God very likely (>90%) does not exist, but I could be persuaded otherwise; currently, I’m thinking through the fine-tuning argument for God’s existence, which is probably the one I find most compelling. I believe AI is likely to be the most transformative innovation since the Industrial Revolution, but am very worried its development leads to catastrophic consequences for humanity. Consequently, I strongly dislike “effective accelerationism.” I think factory farming is one of the greatest moral crimes of human history. I generally like markets, individual liberty, and economic growth (besides AI).
