Coming from a secular agnostic family background, and after several years of "rollercoaster ride" across
different world views, I finally became a dedicated convert to traditionalist Roman Catholic Christianity.
My conversion did not involve blind faith in scripture, but is purely based on reason and a careful and
critical evaluation of empirical and historical evidence as well as philosophical arguments.
I endorse classical theism with neo-Aristotelian essentialism and hylemorphism as metaphysics
I 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.
