Explore a world of paleoanthropology, evolutionary theory, human ecology, and scientific common sense. 



  Sometime in 2012, the earth's human population reached 7 billion people.  That is more than twice the number of people on the planet when I was born (not that long ago, in 1958.)   As of 2014, we add nearly 214,000 people to the planet a day (net gain.)  We are having trouble taking care of ourselves ... but who will spare nature the consequences, while our human numbers spiral out of sustainability?  


Sparing Nature is available in paperback.

Current major project

In 2007 I began a journey of faith and science with an a panel discussion entitled The Intersection of Faith and Evolution - A Civil Dialogue. A decade later I am writing a book about how it is not only possible, but fruitful as well, to hold both scientific and supernatural views. The working title of the book is Divine Reconciliation - The Crossroads of Science and Faith.
