2016-11-06: This intro page changes from time to time. In fact, they all change.

Here begins: A love song for a universe that could snuff us out in a heartbeat,
 and yet overflows with stunning beauty, majesty and mystery.

pulchra es amica mea = you are beautiful my beloved
— Song of Solomon

DEDICATION: This site is dedicated to my grandfather, George Adams 
                        - another rural carpenter whose inner strength shone like a light. 

INTRO: Long ago friends asked for my help. Could I not, as a scientist, priest and atheist show them a more satisfactory worldview than society’s religions with bronze age superstitions and doctrines? So I promised that I would help them build a new worldview of their own. Here is the story I promised:


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

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

Thus one journeys to the stars.
— Virgil
