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 Roman Catholic Christians; becoming a better follower of Christ myself; defending a rational belief in God (natural theology) and Roman Catholic
Christianity (classical apologetics), as well as spreading the good news of the Gospel; activism against the dangerous nihilistic world view of atheism, naturalism, materialism,
reductionism, and scientism; advancing Intelligent Design theory with special emphasis on supporting evidence from the fossil record; living more simply.
Interests and Hobbies:
Roman Catholic Christian theology and philosophy (incl. natural theology, classical apologetics, Thomism, Biblical exegesis, Biblical prophecy, Biblical history and archaeology); philosophy and
metaphysics (philosophy of mind, philosophy of time, free will, metaethics); philosophical and theological interpretations and implications of modern science (quantum mechanics,
relativity, cosmology); Intelligent Design theory (with special emphasis on paleontological evidence); environmentalism, nature, and wildlife; Christian simple living (homesteading, slow
food, organic gardening, permaculture); digital photography; Apple Mac OS X and iOS; activism for a Christian world view and Intelligent Design (publications, lectures,
website, Facebook, YouTube, etc.); reading books on science and philosophy; TV documentaries on nature and ancient history; Christian movies, SciFi and Fantasy movies.
