There comes a time when third-person bios seem pointless and cliché. I am Servant of God, or SoG, or Servant, or whatever other variation you prefer.
I primarily have one request. Please treat me and others on this page with respect, no matter the views expressed. I believe with deep conviction that one addresses one's views by attacking the views, not the person. I encourage healthy discussion, and this means that there should not be attacking of any other people because of their views. This also means that I encourage a page in which views are often talked about and in which disagreements are expressed. As long as this is not personal, as it shouldn't be, I do not expect people to get angry if their views are challenged.
Now, about me. I am, first and foremost, a Christian. I will not go so far as to describe any level of dedication because doing so would seem prideful to me. My beliefs are still the same, despite any level of devotion. Second, I am a philosopher. I am not yet trained particularly in this area, but I do plan to get a doctorate in philosophy. It is a science that I love, and I love to talk about it. Remember that. Third, I am a gamer. Gaming is the least of my passions because it takes a lower priority in my life. I do not plan on making a career out of this passion, but that does nothing to trivialize its role in my life. I have played video games since I was very young. One of my first memories was of me at two years old, playing my parents' PlayStation. Gaming has been a constant and enduring part of my life for fifteen years.
Among the things that I value in games are good gameplay and a good storyline. I don't have much interest in simulators or sports games, and I hate MMO's. Other than this, I'm willing to try just about any game that I can get my hands on and to critique them as viciously as I please. Call of Duty fans beware.
Among my other interests are theology, Christian doctrine, Christian apologetics, politics, cosmology, etc. I believe that in order to build a worldview that is comprehensive and coherent, we must do our best to have some knowledge in every area. Thus, depending on my mood, I might be just as prone to talking about our nation's broken prison system as I am to share an argument for God's existence. Topics must remain plentiful and interesting, and I like people who can keep it that way. This is one reason why I've been on GIO for so long.
So, good people of GIO, feel free to read the blogs, to start a conversation with me, to discuss freely on my page, and to read my blogs. I shall wait for the next good discussion. God bless.
