My next chapter will focus on the creation account and leave readers with the impression that it can be believed by the reasoning layman.
I have been aginst the evolution brain wash for about 30 years. So I had to read your work. I agree with the subject matter. I know that you describe the work as a laymans work. Yet you come accross as sermon notes at times. Lots of data and definitions. In the end you conclude that either evolution or creationism is a matter of faith because there is no solid evidence.Should have a good market in the Christian genre.Backed.
Authors, take note.This is how to write.
Dear Mr. Smith: I read your "about me" column. If you want people to take you more seriously, the paragraph "about me" is an opportunity to impress your reader with your qualifications to write on this highly techinical topic. People may want to know what makes you particularly qualified to address the subject.
You are of course right, though I'm not sure if you're referring to the introduction on my book, or to my Mr.Smith page on authonomy.The introduction explains briefly that I am attacking this subject as a reasoning Layman. Retired at 46, I was a program manager for a large automotive Tool and Die shop in Canada, and my wife and I have simplified our lives and are now living in a central american country. Qualifications:As a scientist, none. As a Layman, more than most.I have read thousands of articles on evolution or articles that included the ideas around it, am an avid National Geographic reader and have been for decades, read technical manuals for fun, have studied the bible in depth for 35 years; read, cross-referenced and analyzed the Koran in some depth, read parts of the Sikh holy book of proverbs, analyzed the book of Mormon somewhat...and the list goes on.I read everything with an open mind and in the perspective in which it was written. Once I come to a conclusion though, I am not afraid to say it. If it seems like evolution is in some way being attacked here, it is simply because the vengeance to which many knowledgeable people adhere to this faith contradicts the very principles they claim to follow, that of hypothesis, impartial observation and confirmation or disproof of facts. I purposely abstained from drowning the reader in deep technical details, basing my arguments instead on reason. All in all, the reader should at all times keep in mind that this is my opinion only, and that I respect people's decision to believe whatever they want to believe.
Mrs Mama,I have to admit that your work did bring a measure of...let me say...happiness to my otherwise dull day. You should know, this is very unusual, as I do not smile much.searching the Matrix, I have come to see that what you do write is actually as true as you would understand it to be. It is astounding the things a human mind can experience and thrive on. You should also now that your writing is both quite good, and quite engaging.Good bye.
