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

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

Childish things: gods and goddesses, angels and demons, are fading away now - 
    
Time to grow up.

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

Humans:
On our way, we leave foot prints:

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

Next the  Moon:
 1969 AD >>>

Then to the stars - ?
               
       Or to our end and extinction. ??


Long ago, friends asked me to help them reconcile religious magic and superstition with modern science. Then I was a young priest and scientist, but next we found that we had to leave society and religion behind. 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.   .   .

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