Was that a job application?

Clever response.  No, it was solicitation, I am interested in his showing me his ... bonfides ;-)

It is possible I may have misunderstood your previous posts...

PLU was away for a long time.  You and I are not familiar with him.

Yeah. We seem to get all the crazy ones. Makes sense, though. Why would a Christian go to a a site called "Atheist Forums" unless they were looking for a fight?

Some do.  Baruch, for example.  I personally think he does it for penance.

Yeah that sounds about right.  You are either here to convert us or you you are ordered to annoy us for forgiveness of your sins.

The second.  Conversion is anti-semitic technique.

German universities have English outreach.  I have studied some of their quantum communication theory a few years ago.  Hakurei Reimu (pen name) is a statistician who posts here, but he doesn't have a teaching attitude.  If I have some math questions, are you open to assisting?  For example ...

I have a side interest in abstract algebraic logic.

If interested, we can adjourn this to the math section of course.

On the agnosticism/atheism ... well, many here have epistemological objections to theism.  Coming from psychology, I do not.  Empiricist vs rationalist divide ... Apollonian vs Dionysian (per Nietzsche).

We tried to get a Godel-Escher-Bach discussion group going once also.  That might be more your speed.

My bad, I meant to type "high school" instead of "college." I don't think I'd be able to help you with that kind of high level math.

OK.  No shame, your HS math is like college math in the US ;-)  Best math book I have ever bought was the English translation of the first edition VNR Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics (E Germany). by Gellert et al Editors.  The upper level chapters cover Galois theory!

I also liked the first edition CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics  (USA) by Weisstein.

Anyway, do you have a favorite math channel on YouTube?

If you think Baruch cares about whether or not you agree with him, you don't know him very well. His goal isn't to convert anyone.

I would like a little friendly help with my math, when I get back to it.  But I don't care if you are a believer, agnostic or non-believer in irrational numbers ;-)

I like numberphile and mathologer on youtube. They explain things really well, and make it interesting where it otherwise might not be if explained by a math teacher. I think the job of people who teach math in school is to make it as boring as possible.

Mathlogger corrects Numberphile's mistakes ;-)  But Numberphile is easier to follow.
