I was a staunch atheist and materialist until my early 40ies, but after a spiritual journey that took several years I finally embraced a world
view of philosophical theism based on a kind of axiarchic Neoplatonism and Phythagorean Idealism as metaphysics. I now strongly reject atheism,
naturalism, materialism, reductionism, and scientism. I did not change my views in spite of being a scientist
but because of it, based on a careful and critical evaluation of empirical data and rational arguments,
following the evidence wherever it leads.
I am a dedicated nature enthusiast. From early childhood my greatest interest always has been and still is wildlife, nature, and
nature conservation. I have a special passion for deciduous trees, birds, aquarium fish, insects, and fossils.
After some years of bad experiences I am no longer interested to discuss the arguments against atheism, materialism, and Neo-Darwinism on social media platforms. I also simply do
not have the time to answer common objections or general questions by email, given that many thoughtful responses can be easily googled on the internet or found in
commonly available books at Amazon.
