Welcome to this website for Christopher Bathum
I told Chris he was getting goggled a few hundred times a month and he said “Why?” and I said “let’s find out” and I offerred we put together a site to help those who were trying to find out more about what he was doing.
“I figured they would just ask if they were curious” he said and I explained people really just google these days. He shrugged and agreed we could do this. Then about ten minutes in and the technical stuff done, he took it over, did almost all of it, and gave it back to me today.
It is a lot better than I would have done. I Hear it is getting technical and thick. I suggested a page of cartoons to balance it, which I do think is soon coming.
One thing we are not going to do here is more of the kind of petty and hateful speech much of the internet has turned into, where there is no accountability for anything said and people just slam each other for “fun.”
“If there is any worthy debate is not between different people” Chris said “the fight is between ignorance and knowledge, between “the jud” (Sanskrit-inert) and the conscious. Let’s contribute to the knowledge and let ignorant hate speech work it out by itself ”
“A website needs to be a powerful expression of your vision, it needs to show others who you are and what you like and believe in” he said ” we have a lot of fun, lets have some fun with it.”
So with that in mind lets have some fun. None of the other organizations is responsible for the point of view or complete lack of appropriateness you may find on this site, if not now soon. I apologize in advance for the site and for Christopher Bathum. I am sure he will also.
