I am a curious, intelligent, rational, proud, and egocentric American male living in Belgium. I am very tolerant, interested in most things, and enjoy debating many subjects. I prefer to separate emotion from logical discussion, although I can partake in both equally well, when so inclined. I tend to be rather empirical, and thus do not partake in any religion. I can be quite tactful if I take the time. I believe human nature to be selfish - which would traditionally be considered evil - and this affects many of my subsequent ideas.
