All right, I give in.
A few weeks ago I stopped posting on the old Daism Forum, as much to save my sanity as to protect the sanity of others posting and reading there. Since then I've tried to channel my energies into different outlets, but I can't help noticing a persistent impulse to keep my mouth yapping about one thing or another. I remain committed to not posting on the Daism Forum anymore, but I apparently need some kind of outlet for putting my views out there, and this seems the most appropriate one available. So here goes. I have no idea as of yet where this will go, what kinds of posts I will put out, and who on earth will read them, but narcissism seems to have no boundaries, nor does the internet, and thus they seem to make for a perfect marriage.
I can't pretend there's some altruistic motive behind this blog. I'm not here to enlighten anyone, or to be enlightened. Some things just agitate me enough that I have to write about them, and God knows what that will turn out to be from day to day - if this blog even lasts more than a few days. I will probably write about religious and spiritual issues fairly often, but just as likely I will write about political, scientific, artistic and cultural issues. Like many in the blogosphere, I'm a frustrated natural critic and commentater who secretly laments that his views are not accorded the vast esteem and recognition they so richly deserve. Now I can openly lament my condition, and in a fashion that virtually guarantees that hardly anyone will listen. Does anyone actually ever read blogs? We shall see. Or maybe only I will see.
Enough self-deprecation. Time to post something.
