Quotes

This is admittedly the ultimate in self absorbed, self referential - but some years ago, as I was cruising the web, I'd discovered that there were people who were occasionally quoting things that "Marc Carlson" said.  Since frequently I can't even recall what I wrote yesterday, I find it surprising (and a little disturbing that some people have found things I've written (or things someone with my name has written) and chosen to post them to the Internet.

Of course, I've started posting my fiction to the net now, and you don't get much more self absorbed than that...

  In some cases, all it requires is that you rationally point out that there is a problem. In others, all you can do is turn the other cheek. At the far end of the spectrum are those for whom the only appropriate response is to carve out their still-beating heart and force them to eat it. Belief-L

  To put it bluntly, if we lived in a universe where all things were decided by God, and "free will" were nothing but a polite lie, then the universe would be nothing but masturbatory exercises of the Almighty, pre-scripted and acted out by the well-trained monkey people led about by "God's Will". I choose to not accept this possibility, since the universe would then have no purpose that could possibly interest me. Belief-L (8 Jan. 1999)
