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…
