Well, you're in the right place (R6). If you can get into U of Chicago and make it through the econ department, you're kinda set for life as an economist.

Congrats! That's pretty huge!

Whaaaaa...you overachiever! Anthony! =)

Alumni of NCFCA. I'm here at the invite of a couple of your members to try to get some sense into the skulls of your more conservative backwards folks ;) (I mean that in a nice way. I honestly want to see more enlightenment happen in NCFCA). Please don't ban me.

I'm a liberal, democratic socialist who is bisexual and cisgendered. I believe there is a god but who s/he is is something Christianity alone cannot answer. I have a college degree from an Ivy League I'm in the middle of earning and consider myself one of the smartest grads of the league. I am honestly a pretty humble guy but felt like I should make that clear for anyone hoping to debate me.

I should say league meaning NCFCA. Not the Ivy League, I'm merely one of many bright minds there. I don't mean to be arrogant or prideful, I say that out of genuine concern I might intimidate people. :)

So I do have to ask; why are you spending your time on us lesser life forms? :lol:

Also, Cashley died in a hole. I don't know why you keep trusting him. I mean sure he's super good at mafia and knows exactly what he's doing, but I feel like maybe some game you would just not trust him. :P Props to you Cashley, always making my games exciting.

I don't think I've done this.

Background:
Been homeschooled with Heritage Christian School since I was in school. Middle of 5 offspring, 3 brothers (2 of which are on this forum), 1 sister(in the spot directly older than me). And some other stuff, I guess.

Religious:
Christian. I have no idea about denominations (I should really study that stuff more), but I believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God, and that we have free will. So no Calvinism for me. :P I also think that the law, and the Old Testament in general, are undervalued by most Christians today, with too much focus on being nice and feeling good. Justice is important, and rebuking your brother when he does wrong. If you know someone is making a mistake, the loving thing to do is tell them.

Political: I'm conservative. Anti gun control, and I don't know much about politics. The Constitution is good. We should keep it. Hey, wasn't Abe Lincoln a swell guy?

Goal in life: Glorify God, whatever he wants me to do. Practically speaking, I think I'd like to design video games. I'm also vaguely interested in everything else. Seriously, it's really easy to get me interested in things. I also am dead set on becoming fluent in Latin. Because Latin is awesome. I also want to know how to program. And I want to get a higher education in math. And philosophy. And history. And psychology. And everything. Teach me anything.
