“If we cannot take joy in things that are merely real, our lives will always be empty.”
– Eliezer Yudkowsky
My name is Chana Messinger. I care a lot about rationality, and I try to use it in all my thinkings and doings. I’m an avid Less Wrong reader, which gave me the name of my blog. I’m always happy to hear about new ideas, new arguments and new evidence.
I am also the president of the University of Chicago’s Secular Alliance, I spoke at the 2011 Secular Student Alliance National Conference, interned for the Foundation Beyond Belief in the summer of 2012, was an invited panelist at Skepticon V and spoke at the 2013 Chicago Skepticamp Conference. I’m happy to speak more, so get in touch with me!
I am currently a fourth year mathematics student at the University of Chicago. My interests include logic, politics, economics, philosophy, linguistics, atheism, religion, community-building and argumentation.
