Core Principles

My philosophy and approach to research, writing, and life in general is guided by the three principles of scientific thinking.

Question everything including authority, experts, and more importantly yourself, your assumptions, and your biases.

Maintain a healthy dose of open skepticism, tempered by a willingness to update beliefs based on new evidence.

Practice intellectual honesty above all else. It is OK to be wrong AND admit when you are wrong. We are all human and make mistakes.
