About Me:

I'm not afraid to argue or debate for what I believe in (reality) or against ideologies that threaten society and our advancement as a species. I live by the saying of my favourite author, Christopher Hitchens: "Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence."

There are nights, indeed entire days, where I willingly become a candidate for spontaneous human combustion.

Headlines the world around have become like the scowls of doom prophets. Where is almighty god in all this, why has he not come forth to bring order to the disorder?

With 300k views, I’m tentatively going to say that I am the most read commentator of the MyNews section—as I’ve beaten both Irukanji and ZION in views & comments. Come and celebrate with me.

I’d wager a bet that when neuroscientists finally map the pattern of brain activity that constitutes thinking, we may find the pattern alarmingly absent from most members of our species.

For me, personally, atheism was a gateway ideology that lead to a far more dangerous state of mind.

As I mercilessly toil the vineyard of alcoholism, I am exposed to various kinds of firewater, but rarely do I find a beverage that instantly occupies the top of my favourites list.

A severe case of Pistoriphobia has swept the nation at an unprecedented rate.

The ongoing trial of Oscar Pistorius, again, has brought out the very worst of South Africa for the whole world to see.

I blame the hostility intellectuals have towards their own kind on the dogfight world that is academia.

Good intentions often form the foundation of social and economic disasters, but ‘do-gooders,’ high on their sense of moral superiority, never learn from their mistakes.
