Hi. My name is Thad Coons, but on the Internet I often go by the handle, Confutus. I call myself an independent generalist scholar. My principal work is the Sapience Knowledge Base, a topically organized guide to knowledge, which is on another section of this web site. I’m an active, believing member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and a concerned citizen of the United States of America. I have little authority and few credentials. These are some of my thoughts.
