I recall from wotmania's interview, and from what Larry said, that you're currently getting a graduate degree in philosophy. But what else can you tell me about your education? Majors and undergrad degrees? Interests in high school, etc?

Thanks view post

I'm ABD for my philosophy PhD, and unless I sell many, many books soon, I likely will be for the foreseeable future! I also have an MA in Theory and Criticism, and a BA in English Language and Literature.

My interests in highschool were painfully predictable... <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> view post

Let me guess: Sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll for high school interests? <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> view post

Mr. Bakker, at what point in your life did you decide what you wanted to do with college and your career? view post

I'm still in my thirties! Please, call me Scott. I was always one of those punks whom highschool teachers refer to as 'bright underachievers.' Lots of dreams, and not a lick of self-discipline. I actually quit highschool twice, and I somehow managed to transform the first few years of university into an extension of highschool.

Then I met Sharron and everything changed. Suddenly I started pursuing rather than talking about my passions: philosophy and fiction. Believe it or not, I actually pursued the first because I thought it was more practical! <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->

And Larry - you even got the order right! view post

Probably because I too am now in my thirties <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

On a more serious note, sounds like your fiancée must have made a tremendous positive impact on your life. How cool! <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post

Just out of curiousity Scott, do you have any knowledge of religion? I noticed you used a lot of interesting terms that you wouldn't come across everyday and you seem to have some knowledge about Scripture, prophecy, apostasy, and gnosticism among other things. Do you know anything about the Bible or it's history? And do you hold to any religion yourself? These questions may be somewhat personal, but I am just curious because I found your first book fascinating, and I bought the second one yesterday. I grew up in Woodstock, ON, not far from London and I am attending a one year Bible course, so many things in your books interest me. view post

Somewhere on the board I believe Scott has told us he is Agnostic, search around somewhat and I'm sure you could find his explanation on his beliefs.


Edit: Found it for you.

Oh, and just out of curiousity Scott, do you belong to a religion?


I'm an agnostic with a yen for the mysterium tremendum. When people ask me if I believe there's such a thing as God, I tell them I'm having a hard enough time believing there's such a thing as meaning.[/quote:fd2w3z9y]

Scott discusses much of this in this topic. [url=http&#58;//forum&#46;three-seas&#46;com/viewtopic&#46;php?t=275&amp;postdays=0&amp;postorder=asc&amp;start=0:fd2w3z9y]Here[/url:fd2w3z9y] view post
