I have bachelors and masters degrees in Electrical Engineering, a Professional Engineer Certification in two states and a Project Management Professional Certification. I live in South Carolina and have a passion for Cosmology, Astronomy, Politics, Running, Cycling and just about anything related to sports. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and two children and started this blog in hopes of furthering my knowledge of the topics I love through interaction with the Internet community. In some way, I also started this blog to make sure I kept up the skill of expressing my thoughts in more than 140 characters!
I am a Christian and do not have issues with Christianity and Science co-habitating. I can’t believe that God would give us a logical, analytical brain and not expect us to use it to validate and clarify His teachings. At first Cosmology and Genesis seem to contradict one another but when you dive deep into both areas, you’ll find they are more alike than different. I enjoy questioning both Science and my Spiritual Beliefs and I find that my faith in both becomes stronger when I do.
By eduction, I am a scientist so I believe in the Scientific Method and believe those same principles can be used in other areas. What makes Science work is a rigorous review process. A scientist states a hypothesis, performs a test, presents the data, draws conclusions and then discloses everything for peer review. It sounds strange to non scientists but the person presenting the results not only welcomes dissenting opinions but encourages them. It is only through a rigorous review from their peers that the conclusions become accepted science. Conflict and Disagreement are the norm and not the exception. This is how I pattern my posts and welcome/expect critical review. We are debating the facts, not the person.
“Error never shows itself in its naked reality, in order not to be discovered. On the contrary, it dresses elegantly, so that the unwary may be led to believe that is ts more truthful than truth itself.” – Irenaeus of Lyons
