|Introduction||I've had two careers, first in engineering and second as a high school science and math teacher. I have a life-long interest in philosophy and the many spiritualities in our world. I have always believed in a perfect, infinitely-knowing God. Many of the traditional explanations of Bible stories challenge the idea of Divine perfection, Divine omniscience, or both. I have long felt the Bible has been taught incorrectly by Christian institutions. While studying for my Master's degree, I read Anne Conway's Kabbalist-inspired 17th century treatise. I found my personal heretical beliefs were not new to the world. Reading her work was like reading my own mind. Last year, I chanced upon english translations of some Books of Kabbala, and experienced the same feeling of immediate familiarity. I have shared my ideas with several people over the past 10 years, and have recieved highly positive responses. Some have said I should write a book! In retirement, I wish to share my views with all who seek a relatively concrete alternative approach to scriptural understanding, beginning with this Blog.|
