Thomas Jefferson, writing to a nephew:
Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there is one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.

Wise, that fellow. Like to read more how he concluded.

I have the same template as you. Instead of tags, I use categories. Now, do you know if I click on any of your tags, it sends me away from your blog and on to the WordPress archives? That is not what I wanted.
In other words, I can’t look up what you have on Palin or on agnosticism, because your tags are not linked to your own stuff, but to the WordPress listings.
I have just seen that it is the same with my “categories”. I did not know…
There are TWO ways to get to (for example) everything that i’ve tagged with “Palin” or Shakespeare (or whatever).
Simply type “Shakespeare” into the search box in the upper right corner of this blog, OR click on one of the tag cloud terms at the lower right side of the blog.
