The Coming Wave Page #42
Q: You know, MA, that I have closed all my e-mail accounts where readers were giving me feedback.
MA: I understand.
Q: It got a bit repetitious and, in all honesty, this project is winding down. I hope that our friendship can remain however - it is lots of fun knowing you.
MA: You are always welcome in my home and you can use my cabin any time you choose. After all you have done so much work up there you should own some sweat equity by now. But it will be good to see you move on to something new. You have probably wasted your time writing about me.
Q: MA I have never thought that you fully understand how well known and respected you are on the Internet. It is my opinion that your writings from the last seven years will be quoted for some time to come.
I would not have missed this series of articles for the world. This project was started on a whim, grew to be an all-consuming effort for me and it is now my prize possession. Not to mention Kate and the change she has made in my life.
MA: That is good to hear.
Q: But I would like to touch on a few subjects that have been asked by my readers, would you mind?
MA: Be glad to help.
Q: I titled this project as “The Coming Wave” due to the first conversation we had up at the lake. What I would like to do now is to go back and address that issue in great detail.
When I was writing the first article in this series I tried to give a rough image of your worldview and your vision for the future. I did a terrible job transmitting that information and as a result several websites that were hosting my work were flooded with complaints.
Now that I have laid a better foundation on which to build that conversation, I would like to explore your concept of the “Coming Wave” with you.
MA: It seems a perfect day to do so.
Q: You have been retired for a very long time now, do you miss working in the field?
Q: When we spoke at the lake for the first time your opinions were very new to me and, in all honesty, somewhat shocking.
I had never known someone with strong religious beliefs who also believed in evolution.
MA: It is not as unusual as you might think. In fact the more you study the workings of the universe the more you find yourself in awe of the beauty.
Q: And you feel that man is subject to both evolution and to God's will?
MA: Why would you think that evolution is not God's will?
Q: Well I don't know. Isn't evolution a physical system that functions independently?
