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 to become good followers of Christ; becoming a better Christian myself; becoming an apologist for Christianity and spreading the good news of the Gospel; and living more simply.

Interests and hobbies:

Christian religion, theology, and philosophy (incl. Thomism, classical theism, natural theology, apologetics, Biblical archaeology, Biblical prophecy, Biblical creation); Christian simple living (self sufficiency, homesteading, slow food, organic gardening); Intelligent Design theory; modern science (esp. cosmology, interpretations of relativity theory and quantum mechanics, paleoanthropology, prehistory and ancient history); philosophy (esp. metaphysics, metaethics, philosophy of time, philosophy of consciousness, free will); nature and wildlife; digital photography; Apple Mac OS X and iOS; internet activism (website & blog, Facebook, Wikipedia, etc.); reading; TV documentaries on nature, ancient history, and Christianity; Christian movies, SciFi and Fantasy movies.
