The only pic to know me by. Image by missyuna :iconmissyuna:

Other than that, I'm Han Chinese, an ABC (American Born Chinese) living at the Bay Area in California.

Favorite Male Character: Shadow the Hedgehog
Favorite Female Character: Twilight Sparkle

I generally don't take things seriously unless it's a political and social issue or if you decided to be my enemy.

I have a tendency to prefer villains over heroes. I also like anti-heroes. If I do like a good guy, they have to have something I have in common with. For heroines, they just have to be awesome.

If you were to read any Russian Literature, I would recommend reading their short stories before reading huge books like War and Peace or Crime and Punishment ^^;

Whether should I reveal my identity and full name, only time will tell.

As Shadow and Twilight are usually everyone's favorite, I formed a group dedicated to them :iconshadowxtwilight:. If you like Shadow, Twilight, both, or Sonic/MLP crossovers, join up! :D

Before I go on into my personal beliefs, I'll first explain a little bit of my family history on religion.

My dad is kind of an atheist, though he's more of a misotheist if you ask me. He doesn't really like the concept of God mainly because people can sometimes abuse the concept through religious means. It has been shown throughout history and even now that people are fighting over religion or would use religious claims to justify their actions of violence. That's my dad's view, though he did used to have Communist views back when Mao was still alive. And back then, almost every Chinese in the world revered Mao until his death. Nowadays my dad just doesn't care about anything religious or ideological and is more interested in watching TV on sports, history, travel, movies, and being obsessed with photography.

My mom follows Buddhism in the Theravada sense. There are several different types of Buddhism through Theravada, Mahayana, Zen, and Tibetan. From what I see my mom do, she prays to statues of Buddha and Buddhist figures, goes to temples to worship, and follow a monk's instruction on how to pray and meditate. Most of the times though, she just watches TV on Hong Kong or Korean Drama, Law and Order, local news and/or play a game of mahjong with her friends.

Both me and my sister went to an Evangelical Baptist private school. My parents thought that we would do better in a private school than a public albeit it's a bit expensive, plus the majority of students and staff were Chinese. Academic wise, we were okay (though I failed at my Chinese classes as none of the Cantonese teachers spoke English; neither did they translate what the heck they’re saying); religious wise, it's a bit mixed due to the differences between how me and my sister respond to religion. My sister converted to Christianity and remains firm to this day, though she is open-minded toward other religions. That's all I know from my sister in religion. I barely talk to her as I want avoid her at all costs since we would occasionally get into an angry debate whenever we talk to each other over whatever reasons. I wasn't really dedicated to Christianity on my side due to various reasons ranging from confusion, lack of dedication, and social conflicts.

Later on, I was through googling and wikpedia and saw the list of 100 most influential figures in history www.adherents.com/adh_influ.ht…

The Top 30 most influential are either leaders, philosophers, theorists, inventors and discoverers; the top 15 were mostly brilliant scientists, inventors of the medium like paper or the printing press, and religious founders. I wanted to see what make these figures influential, so I started reading biographies of them or books written by them. Looking at their personal history is easy as I can just read a book about them or simply google/wikipedia their names and get to know their lifestyle. Looking through books written by them presents a different challenge. I tried to understand sciences like Einstein’s theory of relativity, and yet I can’t even get pass Newton’s law of physics or any other sciences. It’s only by luck that I managed to pass these classes/courses with a C. :icononionfailplz:

Anyways, back to religion. I read through their books such as the Bible (which I happened to have one thanks to that private school), parts of the Qu'ran, the Analects by Confucius, Tao Te Ching, writings of Buddhism, Aristotle, Greek and Norse Mythology, and even contemporaries and controversial ones like Mormonism, Satanism, and some Star Wars stuff. Then I would ask friends of different faiths, instructors, religious figures and experts, and one time applied as a monk in a Buddhist temple.

Here's me on the far right in a Buddhist Temple at San Jose, doing a Napoleon hand gesture.
Which one is these monks is me? by FerrumFlos1st

I tried Scientology, and it sucks! The writings in their books make no sense, grammar and wording is terrible, terminologies are not found in the dictionary, and the only way it would makes sense would be to join their church by paying lots of money or watch the South Park episode on Scientology. www.southparkstudios.com/clips…

Other than Scientology, most religions are essentially good.
Despite that, there are wars going on over religion or people use religious connotations to escalate their wars, and then there are some unfortunate tragedies caused by religious cults (Jim Jones, Aum Shinrikyo, Manson Family etc.) Henceforth, my personal belief is secular. I do not concern myself over the spiritual, the afterlife, or whether God exists. At the same time, I do not consider myself to be an atheist either. I may believe in God or an afterlife. I just don't concern myself over these subjects. Nevertheless, I wouldn't hesitate to read a book or discuss a topic on religion. Then again, I get bored easily so I ended up focusing on fictional things like Sonic MLP, Frozen, Star Wars, video games, anime, history, or taking over the world.
