Meet Me

!שלום

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. Skype has launched its website-based customer beta on the entire world, right after starting it broadly in the Usa and U.K.
    previous this month. Skype for Web also now facilitates Linux and Chromebook for instant online messaging connection (no voice and video yet, all those demand a plug-in installing).

    The expansion in the beta brings support for a longer set of languages to aid reinforce that
    global functionality

  2. 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.

  3. 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!”
