What is your background, and main occupation(s)? Please give us a few details about yourself.
Retired IT/AI professional. Academic bacground in philosophy, logic, maths (emphasis on epistemology, philosophy of science, and AI). I am a DISSIDENT Christian -- completed my Doctor of Ministry in May 2019, dissertation focus covered philosophy of science, theology, and the historical and socio-political roots of the 6th mass extinction on Earth ('6MELEE') and its manifest climate crisis and ecosystem catastrophe. I became local coordinator for Extinction Rebellion Orlando FL USA in March, just prior to receiving the degree, and US regional coordinator for Christian Climate Action XR US in July. Both XR groups are in their formative stages at this point. I have given the "Heading for Extinction and What to Do About It" XR presentation, but do not feel that it is telling the full truth and accurately presenting 21st century reality -- especially for relying too dogmatically on the IPCC paradigm, for example.
What is your purpose in joining the Forum? Do you have a particular idea or project in mind? Please be specific.
My aim is to connect and interact with others who show share urgent concern and deep desire to discern the truth and reality about our loss of humanity's harmonious resonance with nature. If accepted, i would seek to serve the DAF in volunteer and activist roles and capacities, perhaps to become a US-based Advocate, Spokesperson, Affiliate, and Guide.
