Authored primarily by David Smart (Ryft) of British Columbia, the Aristophrenium addresses philosophy, religion, science, and politics. In its own words, it is: "a modest platform launched in early 2009 as a center for publishing intelligent, opinionated and engaging articles from a growing range of sincere contributors who are interested in exploring and sharing their unique perspective on issues related to philosophy, religion, and science. It is intended by its co-founders as a grassroots effort to broaden opportunities for collaboration and dialogue on these subjects between open-minded thinkers who are not imprisoned by either sacrosanct dogma or popular propaganda, people who are passionate about exploring the issues authentically and rationally with a civil tone." ~ From the About Page
The material published on this site is not restricted to any specific subject or theme. The posts are generally a product of personal thoughts and opinions from contributors who enjoy contemplating a range of subjects. Articles published here are likely to examine a philosophical point, expose some extraordinary stupidity, criticize a political agenda, recommend an insightful book, explore some inner angst, reflect upon a scientific issue, and so forth. Writing is the medium that shapes and sharpens our ideas, a craft with an ancient history that has changed the world countless times throughout the millennia. We have a passion for this medium, and you are invited to lend your voice to the conversation."
