About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Student
Location California, United States
Introduction I am first and foremost a philosopher. If you would like to know me better, read as much philosophy as possible, it may be as close as you'll ever get. I love discussions and the art of pursuasion, especially concerning the nature of reality and how we ought to live. My dream is to obtain my doctorate in philosophy and teach at the college/university level. I have a lovely girlfriend, who takes up more than half of my time--whether she deserves it or not. I love her very much. She is my inspiration to pursue my dreams, do philosophy and try to change the world.

Your bow is not broken but you've run out of arrows. How can you fake being a bard?

Does God command an action because it is good, or is it good because God commands it?
