Here's a surprise: I'm a skeptic.

What this means in practice is that my focus is on the world of our common experience and on the challenges of living meaningfully and responsibly within it.

I regard as suspect any claims about what lies beyond that common experience: God or Universal Consciousness or Noumena or Material Substance or Strings or even the Absence of God.

We just can't get there from here, so why fuss? This world is rich and interesting enough without constantly puzzling, or declaiming, or menacing one another over what might or might not be behind the curtain.
