Who Am I? My name is Carl Gobelman. I am a husband and father of three. I am an IT professional for a major health insurance provider by trade and an amateur theologian and philosopher by hobby. My theological interests tend toward the protestant reformation, while my philosophical interests lean toward classical and enlightenment thinkers. Politically speaking, I am an advocate of anarcho-capitalist libertarianism. I currently live in the Chicago area where I was born and raised. My other interests include: Sports, movies, music, and current events.
What is the Agora? According to Wikipedia, “The Agora was a central spot in ancient Greek city-states. The literal meaning of the word is ‘gathering place’ or ‘assembly.’ The Agora was the center of athletic, artistic, spiritual and political life of the city.” This blog will be an Agora, or a marketplace, of ideas.
What will be discussed on The Agora? As the subtitle suggests, I will discuss a wide range of topics, such as: Theology, Politics, Culture, Philosophy and Life in general. In each case, I will try to infuse the conversation with my own particular theological and philosophical worldview. Not in a heavy handed way, but also not in an indistinguishable way either. Whether or not you agree with me and my worldview, why not join me in the conversation?
