This Post is Old!

The post you are reading is years old and may not represent my current views. I started blogging around the time I first began to study philosophy, age 17. In my view, the point of philosophy is to expose our beliefs to rational scrutiny so we can revise them and get better beliefs that are more likely to be true. That's what I've been up to all these years, and this blog has been part of that process. For my latest thoughts, please see the front page.

Funny Story...

I was checking my blog status on technorati and found a link to my post on Transliteration vs. Translation from a site in a language I couldn't even identify! It looked Germanic to me (but what do I know), so I tried to plug it into the Google translator for German to English and it didn't work. According to the author's blogger profile, he is a theology student in Sweden, so I guess the blog must be in Swedish. How fun! Only I can't read it, and I can't find a web-site with automated translation from Swedish. Amazing how the internet spreads ideas even to people in other countries with languages I can't understand. Just for the sake of my curiosity, can anyone tell me what he's saying about me?

Insofar as Swedish resembles German, I can make it out.... I think he's just summarizing your post for those who don't feel like reading the English for themselves. He pretty much covers the main idea of the "interesting part" using the example of "angelos." I couldn't make out any evaluation of the post, one way or another.

Hi Kenny, I'm G�ran and I wrote the post. And yes, Paul is right, it's mainly just a short summary in Swedish of a part your post. I found it interesting, and wanted to tell the readers of my blog about it.

Well, thanks for the link! :)

I was just amused to find discussion of my blog in a language I didn't read.
