I have started this blog to communicate the thoughts and ideas of my online persona Copernicus. Copernicus is the internet handle I like to use when I post religious and political comments on various sites on the web. I consider myself a strong atheist in that I do not just lack a belief in gods, but I believe there to be good positive reasons to reject belief in gods. More on that to follow in later posts. My political viewpoint is liberal. Professionally, I am a linguist who works in industry. In 1973, I started out my career as a theoretical linguist in academia, but I switched to natural language processing and artificial intelligence in 1987.
