Wild Fact About Me I was an altar boy for the Pope.
My Philosophy "We cannot reason ourselves out of our basic irrationality. All we can do is learn the art of being irrational in a reasonable way."
Aldous Huxley
What Gives Me Hope Children & elderly folk laughing.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Make sure every citizen has access to shelter, food, clothing, & medical care at the cost of redistributing some wealth if necessary.
What/who changed my life and why Our life are constantly changing, the only constant is change, we are a product of our environment & of the environments of or ancestors as encoded in our genes. It is simply ridiculous to attribute a major epiphany or change in your life to a book or a movie! If something or someone inspires us it is because they somehow filled an absence or void within, which probably would have happened in some fashion or another, sooner or later anyway.
What Bugs Me Greed and selfishness, Apathy and willful ignorance, Being Underestimated, bullying and cruelty, Closeminded people, Hypocrisy and Selfishness, Ignorance and arrogance, Injustice and Oppression, Indifference and Intolerance, Complacency and lack of compassion, BEIN  
Passions traveling, other cultures, mythology, nature, learning, making a difference, broadening my horizons  
Inspirations the beauty of nature, good people, children  
What Scares Me Religious Extremism, War - Cruelty - Greed - Indifference, ignorance  
  Favorites
Role Models Mahatma Gandhi, Saint Francis of Assisi, Socrates, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Giordano Bruno, Aleister Crowley, Albert Einstein  
Quotation "He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."

"The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge."

Albert Einstein

"My mind is my own church!"
Thoimas Paine

"Intolerance is evidence of impotence."
Aleister Crowley

"The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions, and without becoming disillusioned."
