FAQ

ABOUT MY WORK [+]:
Q: “Who are you?”

My name is Krista Milburn, and I used to play a satirical character called “Femitheist Divine” online.

However, I currently have no satirical works posted anywhere on any of my pages, as I discontinued my satirical character and project entirely in 2014 (after doing it on the side along with serious works for a couple of years).

Q: “What are your primary interests?”

I am a student of the natural sciences (with specific interests in biology, physics, and chemistry), history (with specific interests in [ancient] Greek and Roman history and the World War II era), the social sciences (with a specific interest in criminological theory), and general statistical analysis. Most of my work and research is related to reviewing (hard and soft) scientific literature.

Though I value hard science more than social science, I recognize that the social sciences and the hard sciences are comprised of several different branches and sub-sections which serve important and independent (as well as cooperative) functions (and sub-functions).

All of the fields of study contained within each are useful in their own ways, for the most part, and contribute productively to the greater pool of general human knowledge that people employ and draw from every day in an effort to better comprehend humanity and its surroundings, and to improve the overall human condition.

I view the social sciences and hard sciences not as being in competition with one another, but rather, as working together for similar, yet distinct, goals. Or, in other words, I see them as working in accordance with each other for the benefit of humankind in different but meaningful ways.

The purpose of the social sciences is to understand interactions and constructs in society so that we can, through that understanding, improve the human condition. They impact and influence education, criminal justice and the study of crime, mental healthcare, how laws are created and written, and various other things that are significant in terms of societal function and structure. And the purpose of the natural sciences is to study reality (or the world and universe) around us so that we may better survive in and comprehend our existence and environment.

One brief example of cooperation between the social and natural sciences, and the usefulness of each overall realm, is in the study of human “prehistory,” or the time before humans first began to record events in written form or by some other means (known as “recorded history”) during the late Bronze Age and early Iron Age.

All that we know about this period, which varies historically by culture and region, is provided by scholars in a number of fields ranging from biology and palynology to anthropology and comparative linguistics, the first two being natural sciences and the last two being social sciences. Without these fields and the several others that we obtain our insights from, our research on, and understanding of, prehistory would not be what they are today.

The roles of both social science and natural science, I believe, are vital to humanity.

Q: “What are the common and chief focuses of your writings?”

+ Discussions and critiques of anti-feminism, feminism, and more.
+ Discussions of studies and work related to social issues and social science research.
+ Discussions of subject matters related to natural science (typically biology/genetics).
+ Discussions of history (usually in or around one of the periods mentioned above).
