Hi everyone

I was born and raised in Bangalore, India where I live and work as well. I am strongly influenced by the ideas of rationality, scepticism and I’m particularly interested in the manner and extent to which these ideas shape our lives and the communities we live in.

I have, throughout my life debated its purpose and have looked for the means to convert my subjective thoughts into objective truths. I am glad to have stumbled upon a forum where I might find some kindred spirits.

have looked for the means to convert my subjective thoughts into objective truths.


This wording is a bit dodgy.

If you have a subjective thought that turns out to be true, it is verified as an objective truth, in the sense that it was one all along, though not arrived at objectively, it is never converted.

I am sure you meant it differently, just got the wording a bit muddled.

Perhaps you meant to say something like you are looking for the means to change your subjective perceptions into a more objective search for truth?
