Meet Me

!שלום

!سلام

Hello world! I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while; well, here we go!

My name is Kevin and I was born in 1985. I see myself as a believer, a freethinker, a skeptic, a seeker. I’m another homeschool alumni from Evangelicalism/Fundamentalism coming out of the woodwork into the blogosphere. I maintain my Evangelical identification but am dissatisfied with a lot of Christian Culture(TM). Right now I’m working as an electrician but I would like to be a writer/translator. As can be inferred from this one of my hobbies is foreign languages.(At the moment I only speak English fluently but I can read online articles in French, know a little Spanish, and am currently working on German.) Other hobbies I have are reading, watching TV, listening to music, tweeting, general Web-surfing,  and now blogging. A few of my interests are religion/spirituality(from a variety of beliefs), foreign languages, foreign countries, history(from the dawn of humanity until present day, the whole world), psychology, MBTI(I’m INTP), and philosophy.

I read mostly nonfiction but two novelists I love are Hermann Hesse(I plan on doing a review of Siddhartha) and Elif Şafak. Subjects of the nonfiction books I’ve read lately include religion/spirituality, gender relations, psychology, memoirs, group conflict, etc.

Things I love: openmindedness, tolerance, peace, cosmopolitanism, equality, cooperation, liberty, human rights, justice, love, dialogue among people of differing viewpoints that’s informative, reason, critical thinking.

Things I do NOT like: closedmindedness, intolerance, dogmatism, hate, oppression, racism, patriarchy, xenophobia, general bigotry, war, political correctness.

If you have any questions about what I’ve said please leave a comment. I plan on doing posts based on what I’ve said but comments will affect the timing and subject matter of said posts.

  1. Hi, I found your blog from the Spiritual Sounding Board and I’ve enjoyed reading through it! I relate to your description of being a seeker of truth and a believer, as well as a skeptic. Do you find this to be an unusual combination? I enjoy the MBTI also, INFP here. Keep writing!

    1. First of all I’m glad you enjoy what I have to say and thanks for your comments. In answer to your question, yes; I do find the combination of seeker(of truth), believer, and skeptic to be unusual, at least as to what people say publicly. But that’s the appeal — I see it as a conversation starter. It’s inspired by a quote from a French philosopher(I’m not sure which one) in MLK’s sermon “A Tough Mind and a Tender Heart.” The quote is as follows: “No man is strong unless he bears within his character antitheses strongly marked.” I identify as a believer but recognize the limits of our knowledge, both individually and corporately.

  2. Hey Kevin, nice to meet you here. I also like languages, psychology, and the MYERS Briggs. I’m an INTJ but my wife is an INFP and I can see the similarities. Just stopping in from LJF to say hi.

    1. Hello back! Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment; as I said in the duplex, please feel free to leave even critical comments, for, as Jeremy Beahan said, “We grow when we challenge each other!”
