Info About Me:        Contact Info and Map at right ⇒ 

I grew up in my father's machine shop near Atlanta, which led me to study physics and computing. Then I went on to study thinking and religion. I became a scientist [physics, computing & astronomy] and also Episcopal priest.  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 chain gangs and racism, slavery and lynchings still roam that land. 

I could not be silent. Silence means consent. So I spoke up about our participation in racism and militarism, especially the endorsement by religion. 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.

Finally:    Beyond Religion - my views:

2,000 years ago a wandering Jewish preacher literally scared the bejesus out of society. Then religion returned to its old habits - kissing ass and endorsing rulers. Here is what I think Jesus was trying to teach us:

1 - An Atheist Sermon

2 - Jesus, A Master Teacher
