"Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. and, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand - you are all stardust. you couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - weren’t created at the beginning of time. they were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. so, forget Jesus. the stars died so that you could be here today." - Lawrence Krauss.
Seeking and sharing the truth behind Love, Life and the Universe.
"We are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. .. We are in the universe, and the universe is in us." — Neil deGrasse Tyson
My everyday mentor Pete Seeger - his music and his love for humanity.. My intellectual heros Darwin, Sagan, Dawkins and countless others - their insights, courage, honesty and generosity.
I sing, I play guitar and blues harp - all together. I write, I compose and put together my own webpages.
Raised a protestant. I've only managed to let go of my blind faith until recent years - owe these people big time: My last preacher Paul Kenchington - the epitome of church and clergy hypocrisy. Newton/Einstein/Darwin/Hubble and every scientist who'd paved the way to our understanding of the origin and evolution of Life, and the Universe. Following Dawkins and The 4 Horsemen work I ran into TED and had then become a super fan.
