If you’re like most people, you want to live a life of purpose … a life of meaning. You want your life to count.

I can help you with that. 

But before we begin, I want you to know where I’m coming from. Out of respect for your time and your convictions, I want you to know up front:

This website and its blog commentary may not be for you.

The Top 6 Reasons this blog may not be for you. If you believe:

  1. that the world is limited to a material reality.
  2. that, through science, answers can be found that will lead to living a healthier, happier, and longer life.
  3. that this world was formed by a process of evolution. That, through the survival of the fittest, we observe the creatures that exist today.
  4. that there was no being that pre-existed before, or was involved in, creation.
  5. Who-Are-You-Suitcase-Wthat there was no intelligence that foresaw the design and was participant in it.
  6. that spiritual beliefs are mythical systems that hold to the existence of non-material states of being, including a human soul.

If you’re still with me and open-minded to further discussion, I invite you to come along on this exciting journey.

Let’s get going!


About the integration of science and theology

Throughout this website, commentaries, observations, and other content will integrate science and theology. The science of consciousness — the belief that the non-material exists: self, spirit, soul, identity, mind — may not be consistent with pure science. (The science of consciousness seeks to explain non-material phenomena.) That scientific perspective still hopes to find where mind, self, or identity originates in the brain.

Bernard Baars stated that …

“brain proves mind”

Bernard-Baars-R… based on scientific evidence:

  • We talk to our self in our brain.
  • We see pictures in our head.
  • We recognize emotions related to our experiences.
  • We understand through our senses.
  • We recognize the energy required to maintain attention.
  • We know we know something, but not sure how it relates.


Dr. Routley finds congruence between faith and science. In his educated opinion …

… scientists are observing the Creator’s handiwork even though they may not acknowledge Him.
