I’m picky about who I hold up and say, “This person represents my way of thinking closely enough” and he’s one of the rare fits.

I spent nine months hanging around philosophy people and then a year hanging around the alt.right to understand their POVs better.

So I guess I’m saturated with the perspective she presents, having heard so much of it. You can only hear “so you think you’re a special snowflake” so many times before it gets boring.

But I did effectively change a lot of them around to understand their fallacious way of thinking as I stayed in to present a point of view that they missed in their echo chambers. I know there’s humans behind rhetoric. It just takes some patience ot find them.

After many years of watching atheism change (and I’ve never been atheist, but I’ve been through a few religious things and never had any animosity towards religion) – it was frustrating because it was hard to find someone mirroring my perspective.

I think you may like it. *This* is the kind of skepticism I prefer. What fascinates me about this, is that I came to agnosticism from the OPPOSITE DIRECTION entirely.

I WENT through a bunch of religious things, while remaining skeptical but curious.

But he went through a bunch of ATHEIST things, the whole rational/reason/skeptical/atheist mashup – before coming to the same conclusions as me.

Two opposite directions, reaching the same reasonable middle.
