About

This is a young blog intended for meaningful discussion. To be honest, I spend most of my energy on this blog attempting to debunk ill-founded (read: contrary to my opinion) arguments making the rounds in the mainstream. Although I don’t discriminate in my antipathy to dumb ideas, I tend to focus on the ones that relate to beliefs I hold near and dear. As as result, I write a lot about the woes of big government, what it means to be a good person, and what it means to be a good woman.

The title “The Indisputable Dirt” is a reference to G.K. Chesterton’s Orthodoxy. If you haven’t read it, do. Here is the original quote:

“Modern masters of science are much impressed with the need of beginning all inquiry with a fact. The ancient masters of religion were quite equally impressed with that necessity. They began with the fact of sin–a fact as practical as potatoes. Whether or not man could be washed in miraculous waters, there was no doubt at any rate that he wanted washing. But certain religious leaders in London, not mere materialists, have begun in our day not to deny the highly disputable water, but to deny the indisputable dirt.”

Anyway, there is much more to come from this blog. I invite your comments, thoughts, criticism, etc…

  1. I have to tell you that your writing style, whatever that may be, aligns with my comprehension. I’ve found reading your posts easy and enjoyable. Other blogs, while I’m interested in the topic, can make it challenging to stay engaged. So anyway, I just wanted to give you a high five.

      1. I’ve been bouncing around an idea in my head for my blog. It would be interesting to see your take on it.

        Girly girls, the ones who dress up everyday. Why? Why do they get “dressed to the nines” all the time?

        I have my personal feelings, insecurities and observances on the subject. What are yours?

        🙂

  2. I read the blog on working and doing what you like. Now I am at Legoland and working with kids. The smiles on their faces makes my day. I am sixty eight and feel young again. Working therefore is a good thing.

  3. Hi thanks for following my blog! Means much. I am a bit out there on an island addressing Apple Computers business arrangement with the horribly misogynistic Dr Dre, care to add your far greater eloquence?
