a bit about myself

Hi internet, this is my first blog ever so i would like to take a minute to introduce myself. I am 23 years old and i learn in yeshiva, i like music, nature, gemorah, poetry, computers, physics, puzzles, exploring, and foreign languages. I am also an atheist. As you can imagine this gives me quite an interesting perspective on life. I enjoy yeshivah life, the friendships/camaraderie, the chavrusa system, the intellectual debates, and the community feel. I cannot however bring myself to believe in this nonsense called religion. I started this blog because i have been told time and time again that i have a unique mind and that no one in the world thinks anything like me. I think however, that as part of  being human no one thinks like anyone else, i just choose to accentuate that aspect of being human a little more then most

I chose to name my blog "musings of a discordian yeshiva bochur" because i feel it sums up an aspect of me quite well. I am a yeshiva bochur (and enjoy it) however my attitude towards religion is that i treat all of them like i do discordianism, meaning they have some good ideas but on the whole are just pretty funny and can really get you up shits creek if you take them seriously.
