Hi, I'm Ashton Hennessy, and welcome to Wopism! Here I show you the writing I do on the internet! I am a proud atheist, and a philosophy nerd, and here you can see the work I do! I write commentaries on philosophy, and run an atheist blog - just trying to make the world a bit more of a rational place! Check out my philosophy writing here, and my blog - Tea-Drinking Atheist - here.
