Private Life

I was born in 1963 and spent nearly all of my life in my Swabian hometown Böblingen (Baden-Württemberg, Germany).


I am married to my lovely Austrian wife Maria Luise (*1979) since 2005, and we have two wonderful children: Lukas Hendrik (*Jan. 2013) and Niklas Erik Ansgar (*Jan. 2015).


My priorities and goals in life:

Raising my children as devout believers in Roman Catholic Christianity; defending a rational belief in God (natural theology) and in Roman Catholic Christianity (apologetics) as well spreading the good news of the Gospel (evangelism); advancing Intelligent Design theory with special emphasis on supporting evidence from the fossil record; living more simply.
