Interested:in Women Occupation:Sales
Looking:No Answer Religion:Secular
About Me:I am a top Sales person for a branch of the TruGreen Lawn Care Company, and I do rap battles on the side for extra money, and am working on music with my group as well.
Activities:Working, performing and recording Hip-Hop, philosophizing, and partying with my friends (I'm sure there are more but those are my main activities).
Beliefs:I am a Monistic Idealist when it comes to my metaphysical ontology of the mind and reality. What that means is that I believe that all reality is in mind/ consciousness; there is no non-mental "material" reality at all. I do not adhere to any particular religion, and I would consider myself Secular because of that. I take mostly liberal views when it comes to Politics, in that I am not opposed to gay marriage, am Pro-Choice, and don't mind more taxes every once and a while if it means better social programs (along with other things).
Books:The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking, and Lord of the Flies by William Golding.
Movies:Equilibrium, The Matrix, Inception, and Primer.
Music:I like anything besides Country music pretty much. Mostly, however, I listen to Hip-Hop. Although, it wouldn't be rare to find me listening to Classical Opera.
Quotes:"A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality." - John Lennon

"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness." - Max Planck, Father of Quantum Theory

"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." - Albert Einstein

"All the choir of heaven and furniture of Earth - in a word, all those bodies which compose the frame of the world - have not any subsistence without a mind." - George Berekeley

"It was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to the consciousness." - Eugene Wigner

"The Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine." - Sir James Jeans

"The universe, then, consists entirely of mind-stuff." - William Kingdon Clifford
Sports Teams:I don't really care too much for sports really.
TV Shows:The 100, Breaking Bad, Dexter, and The Big Bang Theory.

I am going to argue that including animal products in one's diet is generally healthier than the alternative, and my opponent must argue that excluding animal products from one's diet is generally more healthy than the alternative. The first round is not for acceptance on my opponents behalf, but for my opponent to present arguments. In order to ensure we have the same amount of rounds to argue, in the last round my opponent will simply put: "..." Good luck....

TheMagi

The fine-tuning of the universe (by fine-tuning I mean that which involves strictly the different parameters and physical constants, not about designed life versus Darwinism) for the existence of intelligent life is often posited as a reason to infer a designer of the initial conditions of the univserse. The argument is as follows: P1: The fine-tuning of the universe is due to either physical necessity, chance, or design P2: The fine-tuning of the universe is not due to physical necessity...
