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 loving human beings and firm believers in God; defending a rational belief in God (natural theology); advancing Intelligent Design theory with special emphasis on
supporting evidence from the fossil record; living more simply.
Interests and hobbies:
Philosophical theism (esp. natural theology, Neoplatonist idealism); philosophical and theological interpretations and implications of modern science (quantum mechanics, relativity, cosmology);
philosophy and metaphysics (philosophy of mind, philosophy of time, metaethics); Intelligent Design theory (with special emphasis on paleontological evidence); nature and wildlife; digital
photography; simple living (homesteading, slow food, organic gardening); Apple Mac OS X and iOS; internet activism for philosophical theism and intelligent design (website & blog,
Facebook, Wikipedia, etc.); reading; TV documentaries on nature and ancient history; SciFi and Fantasy movies.
