As of today, July 30, 2017, this blog has a renewed focus to searching for and telling truth about everything of importance. Truth about ‘science stuff’ (a term I use to include science, the stuff it studies [nature], and the stuff it produces [technology]), which I love, but also truth about politics (which I often abhor), about everyday life, and (as just mentioned) about everything of importance. And never any intentional untruth about anything, of course, regardless of importance or unimportance. I’ll often, conclude a post with the statement, “This is the truth about …”, or something very similar.
Actually, you’ll notice little difference, because I always try to say the truth anyway.
An important thing for us to remember as we search for important truths will be that It is very difficult to determine that any truth is unimportant, and a truth that seems unimportant today may be important tomorrow.
While I’ll continue to post mostly about science stuff, I also want to post the truth as I see it about many things that seem important, including current national and world events, politics, and anything else I consider important. Whenever possible, I’ll include quotes, graphics, or videos from other sources to illustrate my point. Sometimes, in fact, the quoted material may be the whole post.
In some cases, we may disagree about what the truth is. I have seldom hesitated to express my opinions about controversial subjects, assuming I have what I consider an informed or educated opinion. I don’t always, of course. I have never pretended to know everything.
Whether you agree or disagree with me, be sure to leave your comments below each post. I expect to make so many controversial statements that I’ll probably provoke quite a bit of disagreement. That’s OK. Just be honest, brief, and courteous, and I’ll publish your comments. No foul language, please. Abusive comments may or may not be published, solely at my discretion.
While I expect to provoke disagreement, this is not my purpose. Stating truth as I see it is. Truth about virtually anything and everything. I have very strong opinions about many things, and I expect to write about many of them.
This refocusing of the search for truth on this blog is a result of major changes in my life. I have very recently become further disabled and have entered a nursing home, where I’ll probably spend the rest of my life. While it’s not like being at home, there are actually certain advantages.
For one, I get to sit here in bed all day with my notebook computer in my lap, searching the Internet for information, reading some great blogs, writing an ebook or two, and occasionally making a post on my own blog. (And struggling with bedsores on my bottom, of course. But that’s another subject.)
As long as I am able, I intend to make good use of what time I have left, learning and telling truth as best I can determine it.
