About Me:I am a Christian and skeptic who is passionate about understanding and exploring the realities of our human experience. I am a prolific writer with an insatiable appetite for deep contemplation, convinced that every person I meet in some way influences and shapes the contours of my life, and I can only hope that I can provide others the same dynamic.
Beliefs:PROBLEM OF EVIL as well as OMNIPOTENCE PARADOX are two debates I am always willing to engage. I am also available for almost any ARGUMENT FOR ATHEISM.
