Before I even had any thoughts about writing a book, I had some thoughts that kept coming up in my mind.
In church, I learned about the six days of creation and how God created the Universe, planets, oceans, land, vegetation, animals, human beings and everything. In school, I learned about science, prehistoric dinosaurs, sabre-toothed tigers, early humans, and such that lived hundreds and thousands of years ago. Science suggested creation occurred because of a big explosion.
I noticed that I had a dilemma on my hands. We had two points of view that were significantly different. Was the Bible right? Or was science right? If the Bible was right, did that mean science was wrong? If science was right, did that mean the Bible was wrong? Could the Bible be partially right and partially wrong? Could science be partially right and partially wrong?
It struck me that both science and the Bible could both be partially right and partially wrong. If so, how do we explain that? My book seeks to explain that.
Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the author’s parents moved just before his seventh birthday to Santa Maria, California. There he grew up and attended grade schools up through high school. The author is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in U. S. History. Then he volunteered to join the Peace Corps for two and a half years during which he taught primary school students and teachers various techniques in a trial school gardens program in the Ivory Coast which is located in West Africa between Liberia and Ghana. He became fluent in French during that time. After his Peace Corps service, he toured Europe and primarily visited Italy, Germany (including East Berlin then under Communist control), France, England, and the Netherlands. Since he was drafted, he volunteered for the Navy in which he served for four years. Next, he went to San Francisco State University where he earned his Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree with a concentration in Management and Personnel. After that he began his 43-year career as a Human Resources professional for a number of major companies including National Gypsum, Celotex, McCormick (spices), Del Monte, Quebecor Printing, and Micro Lithography, Inc. He retired in November, 2019 to pursue personal endeavors.
