Why Privacy Matters

In this philosophical exploration of privacy, we argue that privacy is a fundamental human right, integral to individual dignity and democratic society. We challenge the "nothing to hide" argument and other justifications for surveillance, emphasizing that privacy is about more than hiding information—it's about maintaining autonomy and protecting against power imbalances. The blog discusses the vulnerabilities associated with data collection by corporations and governments, highlighting the risks of data leaks and the potential for abuse. We advocate for collective action and technological solutions like encrypted messaging apps to safeguard privacy. Ultimately, preserving privacy is portrayed as an essential act to maintain freedom in a digital age.

Why am I an Atheist

In this blog post, I delve into my atheistic perspective, exploring the philosophical debates surrounding the existence of God. I critique several arguments for theism, including the complexity of consciousness, the intricacies of intelligent design, and the classical First Cause argument. I address the subjective nature of beauty and personal revelations, emphasizing the importance of empirical evidence. The problem of suffering leads me to question the compatibility of omnipotence with benevolence. I invite an open dialogue, encouraging readers to engage with these profound questions, regardless of their beliefs, in a journey of philosophical inquiry and mutual understanding.
