About me.

I am just a fan of what the IDW is about. The idea of civil discourse in the face of difficult conversations and the pursuit of truth. 
I am transcribing these conversations because I think they are of importance and people find it helpful. 

My Personal Blog - Where I write about various topics ranging from Free Will to views on Religion, Psychology or Philosophy.
