Oh dear! Did I say that? I don't doubt it, I say many rediculous
things. I am a reluctant Calvinist and I am prone to say such
things. I intelletually do disagree with the statement, "God does not
control our choices". I cast my lot with St. Augustine who said
we do God's bidding enterly by His grace. It was reading Martin
Gardner when I was a tender lad about Newcolmb's paradox that planted
that seed in my head, which was brought to fruition when I unwittingly
hung around a crowd of Calvinists.
