My first post

This has been a long time coming. For a long time I have wanted to have a blog about my general reflections.

The first domain I registered along these lines was called "destinationprogress". It was meant to be more political than anything else. As time has gone on, however, I have come to realise that the discussion needs to be had at a far more basic level. Most lies today are spread through either blurring or disregarding important distinctions, which allows the deceiver to use words from one contextin a context in which they are not at all appropriate. In the worst cases, it allows the deceiver to completely subvert the meaning of the word while keeping the actual letters. This is done in no small ways through the help of lazy journalists, who are helped in no small way by lazy readers.

I can't claim to be a very active reader myself, but I am not as gullible as most seem to be. I have found that whenever a story seems fishy, there is always a distinction lacking. This is most evident when it comes to dicussions on religion, and especially that which has to do with the Catholic Church, of whom I am a proud son. The Christian faith is founded on truth itself, but for truth to exist, distinctions have to be made. It is my intention to point out when they are not being made, and to point out which have been ignored. Along the way, I hope to learn a lot about pretty much everything, including the Catholic faith, and I hope you the reader will learn quite a bit as well. Thank you for taking the time to read my first post and please feel free to contact me!
