I believe there is something suspicious about the people of the 99% movement. They have some good ideas, but so far, I agree that student loans are an unnecessary form of debt. Does a caveat exist? I have read one's testimony concerning a 100K debt in student loans, but three degrees, and yet that person claims to be struggling.
I believe there is something suspicious about a Protestant church providing shelter for people to which opposing views may exist. I have been told the possibility of the Occupy movement to be a "Socialist" movement. I am veritably hesitant on the action of supporting the Occupy movement. They have ideas to which I can agree, but there will be opposing ideas to which I will challenge.

(Trading morals for money)

I plead that if one who lives in America, employed and healthily living, should not complain of hunger; A citizen in North Korea may be deprived of a sustainable diet. One who lives in America, employed and healthily living, should, at the least, have more respect for the military; Our soldiers do not directly rob us of our food. One who lives in America should, at the least, appreciate where we live; You will not be shot by your own government for crossing the Canadian or Mexican border, sent to a military prison camp, or tortured until you are a vegetable. One who lives in America, faithful to a deity, should be thankful; You will not be convicted or punished.

North Korea is one of the most isolated countries with rampant repression. The next time you complain about hunger, think of those people who are or will be deprived of their next meal.

"Concerning how society and it's individual humans react in accordance with the actions of others, I believe the golden rule is a universal ethic."

I cannot seem to figure out if this is a legal sentence, concerning the rules and supposed mechanics of grammar.

"I believe the golden rule is a universal ethic concerning the matter of how society and it's individual humans react in accordance with the actions of others."

I have reviewed this sentence, and it seems that I have confused the philosophy of pure vs practical. I'll have to review.

I have only read a small amount of Immanuel Kant, but I have managed to digest a small amount of knowledge concerning pure and practical morals and philosophies. At this time, I do not remember whether or not "pure" morals gave definition to universal morals that seem to be somewhat of a default within different societies (communities, groups, cultures, ect.)

The golden rule had existed before Jesus had taught this ethic to his followers, but this matter does NOT necessarily mean that the golden rule was a mere "practical" ethic that a supposed few philosophers had thought of at different convenient times. Concerning how society and it's individual humans react in accordance with the actions of others, I believe the golden rule is a universal ethic. Since Jesus had established His covenant as taught in the New Testament, He has teachings focusing on treatment of your fellow man [and woman], not being one with prejudice, and human compassion and charity. Whether or not one views Him as God or human philosopher, The New Testament makes obvious the different universal social ethics that are pure [and metaphysical] and may be the most beneficial for societies [communities, groups, cultures, populations, ect.] to follow.

If I were to volunteer at a homeless shelter or orphanage, and an Evangelical (for sake of example) calls my actions "Christian" duty or "Christian "work", I would perceive their words as an offense to my God, and myself as well. If that person believes God created everything, then that person would agree that God created and produced pure morals and ethics, whether genetic or metaphysical (or even spiritual). By describing my actions as "Christian" (with an intent to limit to the latter term and description), that person is either limiting morals to one faith, or denying that God produced pure morals and ethics, which in-turn would deny God's complexity in the creation of genetics (if pure morals are to be genetic), or God's creation of that which is spiritual, which also limits the actions of the Holy Spirit.

My First Christian Debate with an Atheist

by SteffanAyreon MikelKoivisto Wuori on Saturday, September 3, 2011 at 10:42am
Note: It's more of a sharing of ideas than a debate.

  • SteffanAyreon MikelKoivisto Wuori
    Hello Michael, how much of the New Testament have you read? Can you define you perspective of "world-view"? Can you reason why rational Christians have to deny science and logic in order to believe in God, much less any deity? The morals, ...ethics, and virtues defined in the Old Testament replace law and rules, with the exception of our belief in the Holy Spirit embedded through our faith in contrast to another who may only rely on practical ethics or classical philosophy. I could post an argument of emotional euphoria, or even circular logic to support my faith, but that would only insult my God. Even if Sam Harris, a great philosophical and educated atheist, would claim your article to be bland. My advice would be to study Immanuel Kant's definition of pure vs practical morals and ethics, and to at least study the Bible before posting poorly-supported assumptions.See More

    You are correct, I have NO rational or logical argument for a faith-based perspective. Faith in a deity is nearly taboo, and would never be proven. Since we are the only planet proven to have intelligent life i.e the plant and animal kingdo...m, included with the intelligent and cognitive human race, supported with other scientific evidences and theories, I find it spiritually fulfilling to believe in something more because of that which is unproven that we find veritably curious.

    The moral structure in the New Testament to which I was referring combines a social compassion with order, rather than chaos. I find the corruption of Christian churches to be unfortunate. The latter is possible with the Buddhist. You could observe the Buddhist who lives morally with philosophical mind and compassionate towards others, and you could observe the Buddhist that is strictly religious, metaphorically locked in a tower.See More23 hours ago · LikeUnlike

    If one is intelligent and rational, I would claim one does not think in a black-white mentality like a child. A black-white example would be a Christian directly blaming God for the positive or the negative. "God gave us a truck driver!" or... "God sent down this food for this feast!" or "God sent us supplies!". There are Christians who can tell the direct from the indirect. "Because of God's predestination, and development of human will and potential, a truck driver has accepted our request for aid!" or, "These ethical humans had the heart to send us food, thank God for his will and creation!"See More

    Ah, yes! I can't possibly skip the opportunity to debate with intelligent people... it's against my nature.

    I never thought I'd hear the word "merely" used to describe something as fascinating as millions of stars ex...ploding to create our existence.
    In a universe so huge comprehension of it is virtually impossible, millions and billions of these stars are exploding every second. The fact that we're actually made of these particles is a beautiful and awe inspiring fact.

    Is this part of the plan? Is god so wasteful as to destroy billions of stars and almost all intelligent life on our own planet just so our species can be born in sin and be saved through a sadistic sacrifice of this god's own son?
    But then again, aren't you a "young Earth" christian?

    ‎"Is this part of the plan? Is god so wasteful as to destroy billions of stars and almost all intelligent life on our own planet just so our species can be born in sin and be saved through a sadistic sacrifice of this god's own son?"

    An op...inionated question is hard for me to answer perhaps directly, but I could try to respond. God did not necessarily destroy these forms of life, these forms of life destroyed itself; God is the indirect variable of their destruction. In my perception, although intelligent life dies at an exponential rate, I develop a perspective upon the survival of the fittest, which will continue to adapt, progress, and populate, and the definition in itself will change for each generation. I could state a possibility that overpopulation is just the fittest breeding weak links, which is either a sexual species breeding weak or needless offspring, or an asexual species cloning in the same environment, eventually dying from new dangers.
    if the Son of God had not been crucified, I am sure America would be more totalitarian than it is now, as with other countries with a Christian majority. Simply said, Jesus established a morals through faith and spirit structure for Christianity rather than the strict Jewish law. I know, many Christians from that time and up to recent are manipulating the Bible and people, but there still remains those people with integrity.

    Your first paragraph makes you sound like a diest, whereas your second paragraph implies you believe in the bible.

    So which is it? Do you believe in a god that not only created everything, but also watches us as we sleep and constantly a list of black marks against us?
    Or do you simply believe god who "got it all started."
    In other words, he triggered the big bang then disappeared?
    If you do believe in the god of the bible, how can you possibly believe in your "black and white" perspective? The bible makes it very clear that god meddles in all things. God can commit you of thoughtcrime, and, if he deems fit, send you to an eternity of suffering and pain.
    Wait... are you saying countries with a Christian majority are usually more totalitarian? Well, you'd probably be right, since that's how the religion is set up.
    Jesus's "morals" were nothing new... the Golden Rule was around long before Jesus came.
    All humans have morality ingrained in them from evolution, anyways... Just look at how other species act. Do other species rape and murder members of their own kind?
    If anything, human morality is lower than animal morality, since we have the ability to override these natural morals.
    Why would someone who believes in hell think everlasting life is paradise? Lol

    The 'black/white perspective' is not my own, but rather one I would contradict. Jesus established a new covenant contrary to the old jewish law that kept the blacklist in which you were referring. With the new covenant, God is mostly concer...ned with one's faith and developed ethics, rather than the number of sins one commits. From my perception, I see that many Christians refuse to understand this, clinging to the sins they commit, forcing themselves to be more religious than God had intended. i'm not saying countries with a Christian majority are more totalitarian than they should be, but rather, if Christ had not established the new covenant taught in the NT, then countries would conform to old jewish law, denying any kind of progression. Even if morals were existant before Jesus, religious or not, those morals/ethics are still described as 'pure', as taught by Immanuel Kant.

    Sorry – didn't mean you had the black and white perspective. I meant you DIDN'T have that perspective, which makes you sound like a diest.

    The New Testament disagrees with you on your second point. Here's what Jesus has to say about though...tcrime (Matt. 15 18-20):
    "But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man."
    God is still very concerned with the blacklist in the New Testament, as made apparent by the mentions of hell and "eternal hellfire."
    Ah... and here we come to the true evil of religion: blocking of progress.
    You may say old Jewish law blocked all progression (you may be right), but don't pretend the Christian religion is innocent of this.
    All religions block progress. All religions claim to answer the unanswerable questions by receiving divine guidance from a celestial being in the sky.
    If we already have all the answers (which religions claim to have), what's the point of progress in the first place?
    You've never heard of a moral animal? Surely you've heard of the species Homo Sapiens? ;)
    I've always thought morals to be more fluid, anyway. Of course you have the basic human instinct to not harm a fellow human (if we didn't have this instinct, we certainly wouldn't've made it this far!), but other aspects of morals seem to be subject to change based on current world views and our continually evolving mentalities.See More7 hours ago · LikeUnlike · 1 personLoading...

    Personally, I have to again, start a deeper study within the NT. I am fortunat...e to have greek translations so I have less chance of taking the Bible out of context.
    I need to learn how Jesus defined the 'heart'. Hopefully, His view of the heart may differ from the rational mind.
    Sam Harris wrote in "Letters to a Christian Nation" that MLK Jr. used non-violence influenced by Jadenism. Whether that is true or not, his work brought change. Still, it is very sad that Protestant Christianity (I think) was used to justify racism and prejudice against color. Bob Jones University states on their website that they were once racist because of social norms and ethos (they wouldn't admit blacks and recently lifted the ban on interracial dating).

Excerpt 20110828

[A stencil of a recorded sense following the cleaning of the female bathroom]

Being a male, when I sense a woman's blood through my perceptive smell, I display a physical reaction of disgust. I know little of what pheromones are, but through cognition, I can develop an adaptive comprehension through observations because of the symbiosis of visual perception and deductive comprehension, with such concluding that regardless of attraction to the pheromones of the opposite gender, the latter is overridden by disgust in relation to the veritably grotesque smell. I desire to first put a focus on the word "perception". I assume some people develop different perspectives of the word perception (though, not all people, I assume) as with any word, possibly limiting the word to defining visual senses alone, or, defining a collection of every physical human sense. With as many people as there are perspectives of such words, the varying definitions are limitless. My perspective of perception's definition is still adapting and still evolving. I think perception involves every physical human sense with influence of cognition as well as deductive comprehension. Cognition, which seems to be purely or practically adaptive, may be interchangeable with deductive comprehension.

Commentary for Excerpt 0828:
After reviewing what I had written, I had listed my terms for understanding and mental processing. If you critically think about my excerpt after reading it, you can figure that I mixed some of the terms. "Cognitive deduction", "Deductive Comprehension", "Adaptive Perception", ect, are of my own defining. For example, a college graduate may be in a situation or problem that they may recognize because of knowledge that they had comprehended in a previous class. Using deductive cognition, they process a solution because of their comprehension of the matter. In a varied, but similar situation, they can apply their adaptive perception in symbiosis with their comprehension to aid in a more beneficial cognitive deduction for either a short-term solution, or if more critical thought is applied, then a long-term solution is carried out for their problem.

Marriage Knowledge

If you contrast the conflict theory of marriage with today's gender progression, it seems that a marriage tends to be more equal when the relationship between husband and wife is no longer based on power and dominance. If one husband forces his wife to be a stay-at-home mom while he brings home the paycheck, the chances of divorce and separation are highly possible (not counting the variable of religious dominance/fundamentalism), which would be fortunate in my opinion. If another husband reasons that the wife is just as capable with potential as the male, the wife has the free will for career and education, providing for a egalitarian relationship that would flourish and reap the better benefit for a society that applies strong focus for the family. Through different perspectives, politically speaking, we do not need Conservative or Liberal dominance, but rather a continued mix. If there is Conservative dominance in America, the Marxist perspective of the family idea in America in conjunction through a capitalist economy will forever be accurate, forcing America to digress more rapidly than without Liberals. With an equal mix of Con/Lib, conflicting ideas will possibly breed new ideas and varying solutions for problems in our country. The family plays a more complex part in America than one may believe.

Christian Curiosity

To those that are Christian, are you a Christian who believes God can make 2+2 equal 5, or keeps 2+2 to equal 4?

Metal Ballet

After viewing a few classical ballet performances, I feel that there is not enough movement in sync with the music. I found this video. I have no clue as to if the dancer performed to the metal song that plays, or if the way he dances conforms to ballet rules. Regardless, I will call this great art.

Sharing Our Defenses?

Upon reading a few articles in DefenseNews, the fact that other countries want our technology concerning attack and defense seems frightening in the slightest. Australia wants to buy F-35's, Taiwan wants our F-16's, and Israel has a wishlist. Our Government needs to have a lesser concern with money, and a focus on budgets so we would not have to resort to selling destructive possibilities. If America can progress defensive technologies, then I am sure that other countries are progressing their tech, or have the potential thereof, in which we then have a chance of having the better defense. Although I think we should keep our own defenses, sharing or training, or maybe even establishing more bases for foreign training may also help. Personally, I think if we were to openly conform to what Israel wants, that action may be a catalyst for another war in which we will be involved.

"Another Adaptive Population Perspective"

I have recently developed further my perspective, adapted from perceptions, concerning the human population. I am sure I have had rants concerning "survival of the fittest" of the human population with variables of progression regarding mental and physical fitness with parallel to skills and trades, will and human potential.

I see or perceive that when parents give birth or adopt a child, there is instantly an emotional, spiritual, and physical attachment, directly from the parents, and indirectly from society. When the attachment is conceived and developed, the symbiosis of a practical, yet somewhat pure moral reason becomes part of that child; the moral being that we have a critical moral and personal conviction to directly use death for eugenics or population reduction for direct or indirect supplement to "survival of the fittest".

Frankly, I can only provide weak examples to support my adaptive perspectives developed from my perceptions. An overweight man living on welfare with a non-parasitic intent concerning money can care for and teach his children morals, trades, and disciplines, providing a small, yet complex contribution to society, though indirect. A woman with aids and mental disorders can be a catalyst for new ideas for other people, resulting in shared philosophy, motivation for human will, and more. One possibility could be newly developed or improved medicine. A homeless man could have a superior genetic code that could aid in scientific research with a possible outcome of healthy and progressive results for the human body.

Humans utilize and develop technology and engineering, aiding in the longevity of life by making different tasks easier, communicate, fight wars, aid in research and development, and more.

Regardless of fitness, mental or physical, everyone plays an indirect part. Negative actions from one group could result in positive actions from another group, and vice-versa.

There remains a possibility that an event concerning chaos, such as a nuclear attack, enemy-combatant invasion, or the fantasy of a zombie outbreak that "survival of the fittest" will be a main principle. If you process possible chaos mentally, you may perceive that a chaotic event for survival will weed out the weakest, leaving room for the "fittest" to redevelop as a population.

From your perspective, or even better, fact, whether interchangable or not, what is the difference between adaptive perception and cognition?

"Random Rant?"

"I may blow your simple mind."
"I might astonish your unavailing mentality"
-Steffan Wuori

   In my opinion, there exists no definitive manner of progression; progression, in my [perception] perspective, is merely specified as the latter term: [perception] perspective, which is my faculty of comprehension through my own mental senses which I cannot define because I lack knowledge or theory of human psychology. Many words, although defined, remain perceptive; this is common knowledge, or to be specific, different perceptions of what words might mean remains a perspective. This perspective, in my perception, is that every person has different perceptions of different words, and progression is an example. Simply stated, people having different perceptions of every single word is my perspective. Some live by the exact defining of words, and others live by a relative perception of different words.

EDIT: To be more clear, words are utilized by humans, and contain a level of understanding of use and meaning, therefore, words are applied to "perception".

EDIT 2: or rather comprehension? Cognition? Adaptive perception?

Hey now, Miss Jewett,. I have to leave you behind me yet,. I could never read your uplifting emotion, when we were alone,. How brutal the dogs of war and slime of moor with crosses, knives, stars, descendants of mars as alienated fools set up as expendable tools,.

"What is Death"

How do you perceive death? Are we so emotionally-involved that we cannot reason with ourselves that life continues? Death is an occurrence and phenomenon from which we can learn. Mourning for another is healthy, but so is adapting and having the strength to move on and live life is healthy as well. Emotional obsession is unhealthy, and often taken to irrational solutions taken significantly out of proportion e.g lifting the death penalty because a community of people impose their morals and opinions. Another example could be the laws against Euthanasia in certain states. Our emotions and reason must have a balance concerning the matter of death. A similar argument can be given concerning birth. Birth and death are two veritably significant matters that humans can barely digest, exposing an immaturity that we ourselves can hardly fathom.

A note, and then a harmony
a fraction of the essence of your beauty
striking envy,
you shine within the focal midst of my eyes;
I despise,
your symbiosis of a parallel heart and mind,
our reason and emotion,
indeed; What a rare find!

I feel a burning defeat seeing your face
and witnessing a profound complexity,
trade and talent rarely exposed,
I dispose,
you are unknown to the world in which you live,
and yet, I could give,
handing you a reason, sharing a feeling
such a thing, dispelling,
you have my heart,
but I will only share my mind

"Good News! [Somewhat]"

Since the 1950's to the 1990's, up to 2009+, birth rates have decreased, while death rates have increased. [Wikipedia]
Without the variable of human biology concerning fitness or progressive scientific technology that can affect our lifespan, the world population [human] is estimated to be 10.5 billion by 2050. [Wiki]
With the variable, however, I fear the population will be a veritable upsurge when in contrast with official estimations.
If I had more power, I would, of course, from any means necessary, attempt to prevent this devastating growth.

"Relook: Bob Jones University"

"Curse this university" -myself

I went to the official website of BJU to do some more analysis. It seems they are no longer as racist as Wikipedia had described them, in fact, the website has an apology posted explaining their reasoning.
I fear that the majority of the students and staff are anti-Catholic due to Fundamentalism/Protestantism. This prejudice would be hard to endure as a student.
A rule states that dating will be chaparoned. This is understandable if they have the perspective that all men will easily fall to temptation and human nature, regardless of their faith, morals, the Holy Spirit, or even their own reference to the "New Birth". FAIL
Personally, I could care less. I leave marriage up to God's will. If it is God's will, marriage will happen. If marriage is not in God's will, then I am veritably lucky.
They ban the consumption of alcohol, which I think may be debatable.
The student expectations are obvious Christian morals, but it is unfortunate for the students, since they are limited not to the Bible's perspective, but rather the higher authority's perspective. If one authority should think that a student has fallen under an expectation, but the Bible contradicts the perspective of that higher authority i.e staff member or higher, then that would be quite the "fail". Later, I will post a great example or two.
The rule that really grinds my gear is that a 1st year residence hall student may not drive to and from work. You could be a prior-enlisted Sargeant who has just served duty in the military, be a first-year student, and be forbidden to drive to work. What is even worse is that this is obviously not a Bibically-supported rule. Well, it may be an example of conforming to higher authority, but that shouldn't mean that they have to be on a power trip.
This university clearly insults the human will and ability to develop as Christians above ignorance. But then again, what can I say? They call themselves Christian Fundamentalists on the website. Christianity is not only a faith to them, but a religious etiquette.

"Experimental Poems"

"I can hear Black Dahlia screaming,
I can hear Black Dahlia screaming,
still crying,
she still loves me..."

Dahlia II
"I hear her screams,
her tears taste of nostalgia
the hardest part was to inquire upon her heart
a beautiful depart...
I promised her a black diamond,
the screams,
O, my Black Dahlia;
time was but a distance before your death."

At times, some have asked me what my standards are for a female mate. What are my standards? I would prefer a woman that loves sciences and the arts; she must have open perspectives, as well as be able to think for herself. Faith in God would be fine, but I prefer developed morals, and an ethical personality. She must be happy without any mental disorders, unless she happens to be military, then PTSD is understandable. She must be emotionally stable, and mentally rational. She must have a desire to progress herself. She has to be good-looking or more.

If God should will me a wife, and she happens to be close to my standards, that shall be like a 60 mph fastball to the face like my life depended on it. If marriage is not in God's will, then I am lucky. This is why I am not seeking a mate, which is good for me.

"I am not as Unintelligent as You Think"

I find this coincidence concerning my hypothesis quite humorous, thinking that my theory was merely a perspective, I had discovered the "Human Potential Movement". I find the description to be relieving since my written hypothesis has compelling similarities.

"The Human Potential Movement (HPM) arose out of the social and intellectual milieu of the 1960s and formed around the concept of cultivating extraordinary potential that its advocates believed to lie largely untapped in all people. The movement took as its premise the belief that through the development of "human potential", humans can experience an exceptional quality of life filled with happiness, creativity, and fulfillment. As a corollary, those who begin to unleash this assumed potential often find themselves directing their actions within society towards assisting others to release their potential. Adherents believe that the net effect of individuals cultivating their potential will bring about positive social change at large."

The only differences between my hypothesis and this movement is that I included human will and adaptation, including and regarding variables, unforeseen and obvious.

I thank my parents for my near-perfect genetics. I had thought that the arts were my strong point (instrumental music, composing music, philosophy), but I realize, during my USAF career, those are just trades in which I had adapted, with influence of will and potential, and now I am a Journeyman in the F-16 Avionics specialty. I still have much to learn, since Avionics is a specialty in which time is required in order to learn and adapt.

I mentioned near-perfect genes. I have a natural metabolism that I am trying to maintain in order to keep it, I have no allergies, and my greatest talent is a symbiosis of potential, will, and adaptation. My genes are sufficient for many roles, though I highly doubt their usefulness for all roles.

This opinion is unsupported, but I believe society has hinted that it (collectively) wants people to be a master of a single trade, though it (collectively) would prefer a jack-of-all-trades, or better yet, a master-of-trades. I might be wrong, since social and environmental variables do not necessarily point to a specific intent of society.

Why did I name this article as such? A direct or indirect coworker may be reading my notes as result of boredom, or out of spite, whatever the reason. I have heard my voice on recording in the past, and I will admit, regardless of whether I  utilize proper grammar or complex vocabulary, or not, I sound quite "slow". When I am being silent and observant, I am judged as being "slow". When I mentally process a different solution for a job, stop dead in my tracks, and change direction, I am judged as being "slow". I am not insulting my coworkers. Everyone acts upon their perspective of social normality. Society is compassionate brutality.

If you actually took the time to read my note, leave a comment. I have this pet peeve: When others think I am unintelligent, and I have to attempt to prove that I am the opposite.

  • Read my notes for further analysis. If I have a Christian duty, it was never to attempt to convert you, but rather to share my beliefs should you inquire. Chris...tianity is by choice; Faith is of your free will. Christians are a pre-destined people. Christian morals and ethics are not based on following or observing rules, but rather, developing one's self [Galations]. All of them may deal with a discipline and integrity concerning the body, the mind, ethically, socially and the spirit, since faith works in conjunction with the spirit. (Galations) For any Evangelical that corrupts the covenant that Christ had established, you should be more deserving of hell than a murdering Atheist. Still, I would not wish Hell for anyone. For more information on my faith, I will sometimes post my studies in my Notes.See More

"Even now evangelical missionaries are clamoring to get into China, Russia, and number of other countries with the hope of "converting" the populace with no regard whatever to the beliefs, history, or traditions that already exist there."

"Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear. "
-Thomas Jefferson

"For there is nothing either good or bad, thinking makes it so." - William Shakespeare (1564-1616), Hamlet, II.ii

..."For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith." Galations 5:5

"Again, if an uncircumcised man keeps the precepts of the law, will he not be considered circumcised? Indeed, those who are physically uncircumcised but carry out the law will pass judgment on you, with your written law and circumcision, who break the law." Romans 2: 26, 27

Army or Air Force officer career? Undecided...

If you wish to communicate with me, send a message, or ask for my number.

I am a moral, ethical, and faithful person. My contribution to this society is maintaining air power. So far, no one expects anymore types of contribution from me, except to do the best I can at my job. I can easily conform to this with an open mind.

I can analyze, question, rant, rave, think, see, do, and conform with an open mind, any can factor in to my survival. I am gentle and compassionate, but can be aggressive and blunt to get the job done, or to avoid manipulation.

I am a Christian, and that is my choice as well as God's. I will never force my faith on anyone else. We all have free will as humans. Call me irrational for believing in a deity, but this belief is "faith-based". Besides, I have no hostility towards humans.

Philosophy is my healthy indulgence. It develops with each day that passes. The Empirical part is easier to understand than the Pure part of Philosophy. But all in all, it helps me to adapt to my surroundings, provides me with an outlook on life, and keeps me wise. Thank God for the human soul, body, and mind.

I respect you as a person, being able to develop your own culture. That respect is cut in half if you are one who holds your hands over your ears to live in ignorance.
My name is Steffan. I am unique and complex in different ways, supposedly searching for something in and out of the big picture; it all depends on my motives.

I am surrounded by artificial ideas and crazy people, but I tend to lack paranoia, but I hold true to situational awareness. The point is, I usually keep to myself if I am not with friends or working.

I am enlisted in the military. In exchange for your security, I ask that you at least get to know me, before producing any inferences or judgments about what I do, or what I believe.

I find the necessity to progress; as result, I have started goals to learn different skills, inquire about different trades, and to improve my mental and physical perceptions. I find the ease in use of my mind when writing or typing, rather than speaking. I am of slow speech, so many may think of me as "less intelligent". I contain no defects, rather, I am normal, which is a blessing that allows me to excel at anything I desire to progress.
