I’m a housebound quadriplegic couch-potato with an opinion on everything. You might say that I’m a cultural common-tader. (You might.) Smart people warn that one should always avoid the dangerous topics of Religion & Politics, so it goes without saying that my two favorite topics are Religion & Politics (but I said it anyway).
I’m an aspiring Catholic, not yet worthy of communion with the mystical body, but in the meantime, I’m an unapologetic apologist with a twist of twistedness. However, as St. Teresa of Avila so eloquently put it, “If I should say anything that is not in conformity with what is held by the Holy Roman Catholic Church, it will be through ignorance and not through malice.”
I love to think about big picture stuff, and here is where I’ll be throwing spaghetti monsters against the wall to see what sticks. A philosopher is simply “a lover of wisdom,” which is what you get when you break apart its Greek roots: “philo” meaning lover and “sophia” meaning wisdom. And “sofa” meaning couch and “spud” meaning potato, which is someone who watches excessive amounts of television. Oh, um, “tele” meaning distant and “vision” meaning … well, you get the picture.
