Gender MALE

Introduction In this blog you'll find my philosophical rants within the undead god. What on earth is the "undead god," you ask, and why do I rant within it? Read on and find out or just look at how the planet and all of nature mindlessly evolve, setting the stage for our existential predicament. In the big picture, who I am doesn't matter at all and when I write here I write mostly with the big picture in mind. But if you're curious about some of my interests, see my blogger profile.
Interests philosophy, religion, movies, comics, zombies, philosophical rants, political incorrectness, satire, pessimism, cosmicism, naturalism, oligarchy
