Abbas Syed

I was born in and brought up by a practicing Muslim family, by whom I did not really get influenced, because for most of my academic life, I've lived away from my family. I'm philomath, keenly interested in a variety of subjects like philosophy, social psychology, cosmology and evolutionary biology. I'm an introvert. I can elucidate on my viewpoints through writing better than speaking; however, I am not a weak public speaker.
