self test A on the above          self  test B on the above


  I’m honest, value facts, and understand the difference between genes and memes. I know information both acquired by imitation and transmitted by teaching has played a key role in human evolution. I wish to play my part in shaping healthy worldviews by promoting memes I value and encouraging learning from experience of Reality. The feedback this provides can guide humanity's adapting to its global environment, promote worldviews associated with better predictions, and encourage honesty. I value exposing lies / calling out delusions, countering false information, and teaching critical thinking skills.



I’m an imperfect human being, so I will occasionally lie. Given my ambition and desire to “win,” I will spread false information if that’s what it takes. Is this evil or sinful? I don’t know, but I do know that long ago my ancestors lived in a “kill or be killed” world! “What if everyone values the truth so little?” you ask. I’d say we’re living in that world today and many of us are doing fine. (Note: spreading disinformation and intentionally deceiving others is something honest people typically don’t do. If this hurts innocent people and is done for hateful reasons, most would say it’s evil.)
