I am a student at Winter Park High School and a great admirer of Descartes and the Scholastic tradition that preceded him. I am Catholic and I am deeply concerned with issues of faith in the modern world. My religious beliefs are my own, I grew up in a strictly athiest household. I disagree with the ideals of the Enlightenment, especially the near idolatrous worship of reason. I tend to be skeptical about those who in this day and age act as if they are on par with people like Hamilton, Aristotle, and Voltaire. I loathe Objectivism and any philosophy that preaches the virtues of self-aggrandizement over those of morality and altruism.
