I was born in 1963 and spent nearly all of my life in my Swabian hometown Böblingen (Baden-Württemberg, Germany).
I am married to my lovely Austrian wife Maria Luise (*1979) since 2005, and we have two wonderful children: Lukas Hendrik (*Jan. 2013) and Niklas Erik Ansgar (*Jan. 2015). In Summer 2018 we moved
to our new home in Echsenbach (Lower Austria).
My personal priorities and goals in life:
Raising my children as firm believers in Catholicism and devout followers of Jesus Christ; defending a rational belief in God (natural theology) and Catholic Christianity (apologetics), as well
as spreading the good news of the Gospel (new evangelism); fighting the dangerous nihilistic world view of atheism, naturalism, materialism, reductionism, and scientism; advancing
intelligent design theory with special emphasis on supporting evidence from the fossil record; living more simply and sustainably.
Interests and Hobbies:
Catholic Christian theology and philosophy (natural theology, classical apologetics, Thomism, patristic Biblical exegesis, Biblical prophecy, Biblical history and archaeology, Church history);
philosophy and metaphysics (philosophy of mind, philosophy of time, free will, metaethics); philosophical interpretations and metaphysical implications of modern science (quantum mechanics,
relativity, cosmology); intelligent design theory (with special emphasis on paleontological evidence); environmentalism, nature, and wildlife; Christian simple living (homesteading, slow
food, organic gardening, permaculture, zero waste, degrowth, transition movement); digital photography; Apple Mac OS X and iOS; activism for a Catholic Christian world view and
intelligent design theory (publications, lectures, website, Facebook, YouTube, etc.); reading books on science and philosophy; TV documentaries on nature and ancient history; Christian
movies, SciFi and fantasy movies.
