About Me

Kind Friends, 

The preceeding part of this site is about how all of us can develop new worldviews from the changing science of the last 500 years.
In contrast, this section is about my personal worldview.

Second, my scientific work is now mostly computer installations controlling factories, warehouses, scientific instruments, etc. You can read about it at GarethHarris.com 

Third, some of my story:

As a child, I grew up in my father's machine shop. This led me to study physics and computing. Then I went on to study thinking and religion. I became a scientist [physics, computing & astronomy] and parish priest [Episcopal Church].  At home, I was married with two children.

Where I grew up in the deep south - Georgia, the county prison farm was just across the road. Echoes of racism and slavery, chain gangs and lynchings still roam that land. I wanted to escape southern fundamentalism and its racism. So I went across the street to TEC - The Episcopal Church. I found this to be the home of beautiful and thoughtful people, rituals and music and became a priest. 

I never intended to be a “meddlesome priest”. But the conflict between society's public religion and the teachings of Jesus called for someone to speak up. Jesus did not intend to found “Churchianity” to endorse society.

During the Vietnam war, I spoke up about our participation in violence, wars and Imperialism. The so-called christians threw me, my wife and babies out on the street. 

So, as the Master taught, I “shook the dust off my feet” and left them - and their gods - behind. I do miss the friends and the beautiful music and places. But now I sail on, far, far beyond their religion.

As we part:

I often remind myself that I am trying to perceive this universe with a little monkey brain. Even so, the view is astounding. And the most amazing realization:

            This universe is home to the people I love.
