This website is dedicated to my grandfather George Adams,
another backwoods carpenter with a radiant heart.
He always had time for me.

My Heart Shall Not Fear - Randy Edelman

Today we live in a world of GPS and cell phones, computers and DNA.
    Our footprints are on the Moon.

Gods and goddesses, angels and demons, all are fading away now - 
    no more magic and superstition from the stone age.
        Time to grow up.

We need new visions - of new journeys - that can take us:
        out to the stars,
            down into our cells,
                and deep within the human heart.


Our footprints record our journeys:

Beginning in Kenya:
<<<<< 1,500,000 BC

Reaching to the  Moon:
 1969 AD >>>>>

Now leading to the stars,

                              Or extinction.

Long ago, friends asked me to help them reconcile religious magic and superstition with modern science. I was a young priest and scientist then. Finally, fifty years later, here is what I promised.

Surveying the last 500 years of science - since Columbus sailed, we will build a new vision of our universe - a worldview. Worldviews are unique, like fingerprints. You have yours. I have mine. We will share and compare, and add others from Jesus to Einstein. 

Come, my friends,  ’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Come, my friends,

’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Push off, and sitting well in order smite

The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds

To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths

Of all the western stars, until I die.

It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:

It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,

And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’

We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

          —  Tennyson.   .   .
