Your evident lies only serve to show up the moral bankruptcty of you
Middle-Sheetians, you know. You start out prevaricating about the
position of the Holy Words on the Blank Sheet, and you end up denying
their sacrity altogether. Oh, how steep is your descent!
One thing I have never understood about your foul sect is why you
cannot see that, even if a blank sheet of paper *could* have words
printed on it (which it can't, obviously), the word "intentionally"
would *still* be inferior to the word "deliberately".
Oh, how you quibble! Certainly you undermine your own position by
chicaning about the details of words you believe should not be there at
all, and then being wrong about them as well. It is clear to any true
Blank-Sheetian that "intentionally" is the right word to use, and
"deliberately" a signpost for an unstable faith. Mere temporal thesauri
might claim that they are synonyms, but to the soul they are different,
for they are different in tenor.
"Deliberately" has overtones of deliberation, all-weighing, pro-con-
this-that maybes and perchances; of a process, the outcome of which
could conceivably have been that this Sheet would not have been left
Blank. But this cannot be; to a true believer, a Sheet either is Blank,
or is not. There need not, indeed should not be any deliberation over
that single fact.
"Intentionally", by contrast, shows intent, clarity of mind, certainty
of Blankness - knowledge, inner knowledge, rather than indecision over a
Blank Sheet. All good believers must always question the truth, for an
unquestioned truth leads to an easily swayable mind - must question, and
doing so, shall time and again return to the undoubtable truth of the
Blank Sheet of Paper. But with that undoubtable truth reconfirmed in his
mind, this good believer will never need to doubt the Blankness of each
individual Blank Sheet, but have his full intent set on it.

And now you borrow from other religions? Creative and sinuigrade you
are, orthodox you certainly cannot be called.
"Sorry, no dictionaries indexed in the selected category contain the
You also invented "sacrity", but in that case I know what you meant
whereas sinuigrade is more puzzling. I find myself wondering whether
such novelties speak for, or against, your supposed authority on the
matter of "sacred words".
My authority on the Holy Words derives purely and entirely from the
sacred texts of the Blank Sheet of Paper, I assure you. I do not pretend
to be more of a holy man than is anybody else who reads those books with
an open mind, but any such person has without a doubt more authority
than those who reject the true way of the Blank Sheet - those latter
people, for certain, shall be brought to naught in the Great Shredder
and not rest with the Old Origami Masters.
As for sinuigrade, it is not a Holy Word in the first place, so that has
nothing to with it (and I am aghast that you pretend it could have), but
-grade means "moving", as in tardigrade: slow-moving, and plantigrade:
moving on one's entire sole (such as humans and bears do, for example);
and sinu- means what you inferred it means. The whole word, therefore,
means "moving twistily, like a snake or worm"; something your words do
around the truth, and for which there was not yet a good word and a
neologism was needed.
Tomorrow I'm flying to Rome; maybe I should bring back some
literature from the Jesuits, as a study object for Middle-Sheetian petty
 No, really; a week's well-deserved holiday.
