Coming from a secular agnostic family background, and after several years of "rollercoaster ride" across
different world views, I finally became convinced of the truth of Roman Catholic Christianity. I endorse
classical theism with Thomism as metaphysics.
My conversion from atheism to theism did not involve any faith in scripture, but was exclusively based on reason and a careful
and critical evaluation of philosophical arguments and empirical evidence.
I strongly reject the modern surrogate religion of atheistic naturalism (esp. "New Atheism"), secular humanism, eliminative materialism, functionalist physicalism, mechanistic determinism, and
reductionistic scientism as incoherent, irrational, empirically refuted, and ultimately absurd faith, which is often based on sloppy argumentation and shallow philosophy (esp. among internet
infidels), and ultimately implies detrimental nihilism.
