    Greetings

    Hello!

    My name is Thomas Charles. My concern with the preservation of the world's cutures and ethnicities, more generally, led me here.

    I am of predominantly English descent; prior to that, Denmark and Sweden.

    I am the proud father of two beautiful little girls: 8 and 14 years. I am married to a spunky German lady that may join as well.

    I am very much into sports, especially weight lifting and MMA (which I have trained in since I could walk).

    I'm not yet clued-in to the culture of the forum, yet; so please don't think that I'm being purposefully abrasive (I've noticed that people tend to be a bit presumptuous on the internet, probably due to the absence of the element of actual presence, i.e., non-verbal communication), but my immediate interest lends itself toward understanding (or, attempting to understand) the "racial" perceptions of the various peoples that post here. I find it very (in a good way) interesting that there is anyone out there in the world in the 21st century still adhering in some way to antiquated 19th century racial taxonomy.

    But aside from that, I believe that there is value in itself in a truly multicultural world, with clearly defined lines of effect and true self-determination--as defined by each respective culture.

    What's all that antiquated about racial taxonomy? Although not definite by any means, it can give one a good guess at one's general ancestry, as well as a better appreciation for the nuances of human beauty.

    Welcome to the forum, by the way.

    Welcome.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    The last few pages of this thread, as one example:

    ...seriously?

    Yeah, that they're from earth.

    as well as a better appreciation for the nuances of human beauty.
    I'm joking. I see what you are saying. I think. It's just that it never ends there, in aestheitcs. I have never seen a discussion, even irl, that didn't turn old physical anthropology into a means to discuss which bumps on what part of the head make one person "racially" superior to another.

    I do not believe that such people are in any way committed to the pursuit of any sort of truth. I do, however, see them as very committed to fortifying the fantasy upon which they have built their adult life.

    Welcome to the forum, by the way.
    Thank you! And thanks to everyone else.
