Bowing Out Ungracefully

If you look at the blog archive, it's pretty clear my blogging has lost steam.  Part of that is time constraints, part of it is laziness, and part of it is that I don't feel like I really have anything that pressing to write.  I think I've worked through most of the major areas that have troubled me (at least to my own satisfaction).  Moreover, I've written down most of my important thoughts for future reference, which was a huge part of my goal here.

I've said in the past, I don't particularly like philosophy, I just care about it because I think it matters.  I think I've reached a point where I'm pretty sure I've got (a good approximation of) the right answer- at least, confident enough that I'm not going to spend all my free time on philosophy anymore.  I've still got a backlog of 50 or so books to read (almost done with "Four Witnesses", "The Republic" up next), which I intend to keep making my way through.

I may still post occasionally, and I'll for sure hang around other people's philosophy blogs- because those are interesting- but for posterity, if I never post again, it's not because I lost interest or had some horrible accident.  It's because I reached a conclusion.  I'm pretty sure Atheism is true (specifically, materialistic reductionism)

That's it.  Thanks to those that took the time to engage with me here- Jennifer, Ray, Leah, etc- many of you helped me along a great deal.


  1. You'll like The Republic. Say what you will about Plato, he was a good writer. Anyway, best of luck in your future adventures whether with print, ASCII, or even the analog world.

  2. Feel free to come chat with "Two Catholic Men" anytime.
