Introduction

Hello All,

After having bumped into this site by google, and having found some interesting discussion material, i couldn't resist to subscribe.

I'm just here to start sharing sense and logic with my fellow-man which, sadly, seems to be a quite uncommon set of traits in this world.
I am aiming to become a philosophy student next year of school (commencing Septembre).

I get sickened by narrow minds, i get sickened by them because they can prove to be very influential and be misguiding for others.

That's about all you need to know of me, hopefully see you all on some interesting discussions on this site.

Theïsts are slaves of a weak self-deception.

Welcome. Don't let the big,

Welcome. Don't let the big, red, evil cat scare you away.

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

can't wait to participate

can't wait to participate either! Laughing out loud

atm I'm kinda busy with this and that, these and those, hopefully I can jump into a nice discussion by tomorrow.

Doing this would also benefit my English, English isn't my native language and I'd like to polish it in any way I can.

I'll need it for the upcoming tests which will be crucial to be accepted at the University which i applied upon.

It might not be evident by this post, but I sometimes have a hard time picking the right word. This does not mean i take a long time to pick the most to-the-point term for the situation, it mostly is just a simple word which i can stutter upon. I deem this to be an intelligent kind of forum, so i will not take any offence if you can correct me in the slightest way; I'd actually appreciate it if you do, even if it is a very insignificant correction.

Nothin' much. Enjoying TMIF: Thank Me It's Friday

Some days we're busier than some New York train stations, other days we're almost a ghost town (or people are out enjoying holidays and calender-marked social events)
