I stumbled across this on another blog today (click on the title of this blog to access it). What immediately struck me was how true Chesterton was. But this euphemism does not hold true only to eugenicists, but to mankind in general. I myself "relax" by surfing the internet or watching a movie. What I am really doing is wasting time or procrastinating. Man seeks to excuse his actions by calling them something other than what they are. Ultimately, he ends up dreaming up a reality that fits the new names of his actions, and makes that his reality. Manichaeists, Protestants, existentialists: they all have done this. Let us be true to ourselves, not deceiving ourselves with new names or alternate realities. We only fool ourselves, while denying our nature. As the new liturgical year begins tonight, let us resolve to be honest, with the courage to live the truth, and the greatness of soul to want to live that truth.


Blog personality--for what it's worth

The analysis indicates that the author of is of the type:

INTP - The Thinkers

The logical and analytical type. They are especialy attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.

They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about.

Return from hiatus

It has been over two months since my last post. Several factors have gone into this lapse, none of which were intended. Teaching, which I began in September, has proved a full-time job and more. In addition sickness kept me out of circulation for over a month. Be that as it may, I hope to resume some posting here. I had a conversation with my friend over at, and he said I should get back into posting. So, here I am, preparing to write. I still have an unending list of possible posts, so something interesting may come up.
