About Tanoro

Christopher "Tanoro" Gray is a web programmer and science advocate especially concerned with resource management technologies, biology, and artificial intelligence. He is a student of epistemology and philosophy as well as an Atheist competent in Christian theology.


My name is Chris. I'm 34-years-old (as of Aug 2017). I live in Louisiana in the southern Unites States. I'm a professional web designer and programmer for a local web design and hosting company. This website serves as my personal brain dump when my views get too lengthy and complex for a mere Facebook post or Tweet.

I want all to understand that I'm not an expert in anything except, perhaps, my actual profession of web design and application development. That topic aside, I'm as much a layman as any other. I'm not even a professional journalist by any stretch. My blog contains all the "fucks" and "shit" I would if you were speaking to me face-to-face.

So why do I do this? I don't mean to brag, but my perspective is unique for an American. I have a background in epistemology that most Americans don't. I have exposure to the scientific establishment that most Americans don't. I have no "sacred cows" to bias my views, where most Americans do. Most importantly, I'm a nobody. I talk like a normal person -- not a journalist in quantum physics. I have no products to sell. Nobody is paying me. What you read are my personal views.


I'm a science nerd. I enjoy reading about biology, philosophy, economics, technology, and various other intellectual topics that would probably put other people to sleep. I'm a fairly decent public speaker, albeit an aggressive debater. Some of my favorite science speakers include Peter Hadfield, Aron Ra, Robert Sapolsky, Dr. Ken Miller, and many others. I have little to no interest in sports, regrettably. If you're looking for a private blog that covers sports, I'm not your man.


I'm not going to explore these in detail as this entire website is intended for that. Here is a short bullet list and it is subject to change at any time.

  • I'm politically progressive (Bernie Sanders support).
  • I am an atheist and apistevist.
  • I believe fanatacism of any type is mentally poisonous.
  • I believe debating leads to understanding if both parties bear honest intent -- which is to say that if debating bothers you, you're probably not an honest person.
  • I advocate for legalization of drugs, though I do not use recreational drugs myself (not even alcohol or tobacco).
  • I am not a member of the LGBTQ community, but I do advocate for their equal rights.
  • I am very pro-vaccination.
  • I am pro-GMO (but anti-Monsanto).
  • I do not conform to any vegetarian or vegan behaviors.
  • Evolution is a fact! Creationism is not science at all.
  • The Earth is spherical and revolves around the sun. If you believe the Earth is flat, you're a fucking idiot.
  • I accept human-caused climate change as scientifically fact.
  • I am believe conspiracy theorists are socially unhinged and possibly mentally disturbed.
  • I believe the Baby Boomer generation had it easier.
  • I have served in our military, leased my own apartment for over 15 years, own my car, and have held the same technical job for 11 years -- so if you think I'm a jobless millennial who lives in my parents' basement, I dare you to come at me.
