About Me
Hi, I am Oliver, a history aficionado who values truth, honesty, and knowledge. In my view, all religions are products created by human brains. We all should honour people's views and be able to discuss our current understanding of reality, respectfully. The most reliable way to find veracity is through reasoning, tolerance, patience and evidence.
Knowledge and education should be highly valued but many people let themselves be deceived by superstition, indoctrination and tradition. Real valuable traits should bring the evolution of humankind and society forward.
My goal is to inform people about different topics and to provide honest and accurate information to the best of my knowledge. I am committed to my course and I hope people will appreciate it.
