This blog was started after a commenter at Evolving Thoughts called himself an opinionated bastard. It struck the author of that blog that a blog was needed for rants, raves, and sermons on matters roughly arising from public intellectual topics, especially the politics, sociology and philosophy of science and religion, for people who are opinionated bastards but do not blog frequently, and that this blog would serve as a clearing house for posts along those lines. Hence, bloggers who occasionally rant and rave, etc., and people who rarely if ever blog but want to once in a while, can use this site for that purpose, and readers who like that sort of thing can read from one site or subscription.

The overall style is to be Swiftean, and avoid personality-based abuse. Apart from that, it’s up to the posters what they publish. We will never accept corporate sponsorship, largely because we will never be offered it.

To post, contact the Administrator with your name, blog name and link. You will be given an account by email after you have been set up. Try to remain relevant and interesting, and if you don’t have a blog to rant on and find that you are using this one a lot, we suggest WordPress.com.



  1. <—-looks up Swiftian…ohh, feels smarter!!

  2. I must say I *love* the blog header image – goes so well with the title! =D

    Also think it’s a good idea to have a separate ‘rant’ blog to keep the science blogging less ‘diluted’ but controversial stuff. There’s a place for both, but they tend to displace each other when within the same blog…
