“The basic trouble, you see, is that people think that ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ are absolute; that everything that isn’t perfectly and completely right is totally and equally wrong” – Isaac Asimov.
I like that quote. I also like this quote:
“Science works whether you believe in it or not.” — Herb Silverman
And this one:
“The true triumph of reason is that it enables us to get along with those who do not possess it.” — Voltaire
I’m sure you can see where this is going. Also, I don’t feel like writing this in the third person as seems to be the way.
I’m a 32-year-old software developer originally from South Africa that loves science, tech, cool stuff and Red Bull. I am also a skeptic, an atheist and a woo fighter (which is like a Foo Fighter, only I can’t sing). I am happily married to a fellow atheist who encourages my tech addiction. I guess she is then, by PZ Myers definition, a Trophy Wife. We have yet to spawn another process.
I am a card carrying humanist and rationalist. No seriously. I got the card today, how awesome.
I find the word ‘llama’ amusing.
The llama (Lama glama) is a South American camelid, widely used as a pack and meat animal by Andean cultures since pre-hispanic times. In popular culture llamas are mostly associated with the Incans and Peru.
