The Science of God – Part 3

Posted On Apr 12 2016 by

I had never heard of an altar call before attending Promise Keepers. Nor had I ever had a man tell me, in a way that I could understand, that all my past behavior could be wiped out of God’s record book by simply believing in His Son, Jesus Christ. It all sounded too simple. But in that moment, I realized that it was this very simplicity that made Christianity such a perfect plan. It is this same simplicity that causes so many others to reject it. Other religions reject it because they believe that an all-powerful god must certainly have …


the science of God – part 2

Posted On Feb 2 2016 by

Becoming a husband and father is a great motivator in getting a man to think. I wouldn’t have called myself an atheist before 1997, but any ideas I harbored of a god were along the “let’s just hope for the best” line of reasoning. If God existed, I’d surely done nothing to offend him. If he didn’t, well then, no loss there, either. Like I said, though, a wife and children make us reconsider our understanding of the universe. If I was wrong about the life hereafter and the prerequisites for entry into heaven, then I was risking more than …


The science of God – Introduction

Posted On Jan 28 2016 by

I am not a theologian. I am, by trade, an engineer. A man who loves science, especially physics. I’m also a writer. It is one of my passions, one I’ve held since childhood, yet let slip away. I’ve worked hard in recent years to learn the art of writing again. I’ve published four novels so far, as of this writing. And I’ve worked even harder, perhaps, to build a following. Writers need readers, you see. And in this age, it is difficult to gain readers among the ocean of new books entering the market on a seemingly daily basis. The …


The Science of God

Posted On Jul 1 2015 by

I have a confession. I’ve allowed my desire to write and sell books to push my faith into a back seat position. With all that is happening in America and the world, this is no time for Christians to go on the defense or, as in my case, retreat into the shadows. So I’ve started a new book on Wattpad. Here I talk about my journey of faith. As an engineer and man of science, I take a unique perspective. I was not raised in the church and would not seriously consider a life of faith until I’d lived 30 …


Life After Death

Posted On Oct 8 2014 by

  Courtesy Flickr Creative Commons and dayblakelydonaldson   Yes, I know it's not fashionable any more. After all, the “Heaven is for Real” movie came out a year ago. But I'm still fascinated by near death experiences. And who wouldn't be? Think about it. We've got answers for just about every aspect of science and nature. Even the vastness of the universe doesn't seem to impress us anymore. But death? I don't care if you're the most devout atheist. Every one of us wonders if there's a something after our bodies shut down like an old truck. That's why I …


USS Scorpion – the empty pier

Posted On Jul 2 2014 by

Today I’m posting over at Inspire a Fire. Here’s an excerpt: In May of 1968 the Navy sub USS Scorpion was scheduled to return to her home port of Norfolk, Virginia after three months of exercises in the Mediterranean Sea. Dozens of families waited on Pier 22 on a blustery, rainy Memorial Day with cardboard signs and balloons to greet their returning husbands and fathers. The Scorpion never returned. The USS Scorpion (SSN-589) was the last U.S. submarine to be lost at sea, and one of two lost nuclear submarines. Rumors of secret sub wars with the Soviet Union spread …
