This is a somewhat new kind of religion."

You know that little thing inside your head, 
that keeps you from saying things you shouldn’t?
Yeah, I don't have one of those.

Growing up in my father's machine shop near Atlanta, I began by studying physics. Then I went on to study computing, thinking and religion. I became a scientist [physics, computing & astronomy] and also Episcopal priest.  At home, I was married with two children.

Surrounded by racism and fundamentalism in the South, I was drawn to the beauty of the Episcopal church - with its music, liturgy and what I thought were its awareness of society’s problems. But when I objected to the endorsement of society's greed and racism, militarism and killing during the Vietnam War, these so called christians and warmongers threw me, my wife and my babies out in the street.
So, as my Master said, as I left I shook the dust off my feet.

I find this universe an astonishing place, throbbing with the power of stars, life and love. Every day I am delighted and excited to explore more and more, go further and further - even if I have only my little minkey brain to explain it to me. 

“O my brave soul, O farther sail, 
O farther, farther, farther sail!”

— A Sea Symphony,
Ralph Vaughan Williams,
Walt Whitman

request: my original plan for this web site was to travel around, using these materials to help others develop their own new worldviews. Now running out of heartbeats, I have to entrust that task to you.
     If you would undertake this task, I would be grateful, Gareth+.
