About

The world of ideas is too important to leave to academics.

Most academic writing is pretentious nonsense that makes no difference in the world. Students are more concerned with their grades than discovering truth. Professors rarely do meaningful research, and if they do, their writing is abysmal, and their conclusions are backwards.

I am trying to change that. I am a philosopher and author working outside of academia, which means I focus on big ideas, accurate thinking, and clear writing. My work covers a range of topics, from epistemology and metaphysics to political theory, economics, and social criticism.

Modern intellectuals have forgotten the very basics of sound reasoning: Logic. They make paradoxical arguments and conclude that the world is paradoxical. I call this “irrationalism”, and my work fights against it. I am building an alternative, coherent worldview based on a clear foundation: Logical reasoning.

By becoming a patron, you are helping combat the popular irrationalism of our culture, and you are helping build a rational alternative. Thank you.

I will create an animated video explaining why "blind faith" or "Biblical literalism" is a flawed methodology.

Unlike most videos on the subject, it will not be condescending or dismissive. It will be a short, serious demonstration of why rationalism is a better method for discovering the truth.
