About me

I am not Jeff Goldblum. Maybe you think it's silly that I have chosen to clarify this, but there have been a few times where individuals on this site have seemed open to the possibility to the idea that I am he. I started out doing the impersonation as a meme, but I'm tired of it now. I would prefer to reflect my true self on my profile page.
I am a college student nearing graduation. Although I am not a science major, I am interested in the mysteries and wonders of space, the possibility of alien life, and the 4.6 billion year history of the Earth.
I am an atheist, though I was raised Catholic. I don't think God - defined as an invisible metaphysical being - can be proven or disproven. This leaves me in a position where I do not believe in God, but I am not confident saying he does not exist (or, more moderately, I am not comfortable saying he probably does not exist). I have not examined every apologetic argument in detail, nor am I incredibly scientifically-knowledgeable, so I suppose it's possible my position on this matter could change, if the right arguments were presented.
On the subject of atheism, I am a big fan of Street Epistemology. One day I might like to try it out. If you don't know what SE is, look up "street epistemology" on YouTube. You will probably find videos by Anthony Magnabosco. They are great.
My academic and career interests are centered around nuclear weapons. I am currently working on an undergraduate honors thesis which will focus on the supposed benefits of nuclear superiority. I may convert these interests into a career in arms control, or I may pursue a PhD in WMD and Non-Proliferation.
In my teenage years I spent some time on DDO. At the time, I felt I was ok, but I bet if I could go back to my old profile (I think I deleted it) I would find my arguments cringe-worthy. I recently revisited DDO and was disappointed with its poor condition. I was very glad to find this site shortly thereafter. I'm not sure DART will ever match DDO in its glory days, but maybe that's just the nostalgia talking.
