“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 was also the president of the University of Chicago’s Secular Alliance from Fall 2011 to Spring 2013, 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 graduated in 2013 from the University of Chicago with a degree in mathematics. I am currently a high school mathematics teacher in Pittsburgh. My interests include logic, politics, economics, philosophy, linguistics, atheism, religion, community-building, argumentation and education.
