You see? Just like I said… Nicholas Carr thinks so, too.

You see? Just like I said… Nicholas Carr thinks so, too.


  1. I'm not so sure. But then, I'm Jesuit-trained, which means, among other things, that I am not afraid of the new if I think it can be adapted for God's purposes, as I think is the case here.

  2. Don't laugh, but I googled "God's purposes' to see what came up. Most of it was pretty straightforward references to Bible quotations.
    But I saw a reference to Abraham Lincoln and his 2nd Inaugural Address.
    I have a softcover copy of Maynard's English Classic Series #131 which contains the words of Lincoln. I read the Address and found this:

    "Neither party expected for the war the magnitude or the duration which it has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with, or even before, the conflict itself should cease. Each lookd for an easier triumph and a result less fundamental and astounding.
    Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God; and each invokes His aid against the other.
    It may seem strange that any man should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing his bread from the sweat of other men's faces; but let us judge not, that we be not judged.
    The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes."
    Yet, people will stil takes sides, won't they?
