In my first career, for ten years I was a philosophy professor (M.A., M.S., Ph.D.) teaching symbolic logic, history of philosophy, epistemology, metaphysics and other subjects at Idaho State University, Pembroke State University, and (as a T.A.) the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My publications include A Bibliography of Philosophical Bibliographies, 330 pp. (Greenwood, 1977), and articles in The Journal of Philosophy, Analysis, Sophia, Cirpho Review, and short items in various other journals and periodicals.
After four years research, I have recently completed a 450 page reference work, Some Fatherly Advice about Sex: What God the Father and the Early Church Fathers Tell Us.
My wife and I live in beautiful Savannah, Georgia where I was born and in the house in which I grew up. We have four children and several grandchildren. My leisure activities have included, or now include, hunting, fishing, boating, gardening, writing, “making things,” and now –violin lessons.
For my entire adult life I have been active in various Christian and civic organizations.

Thoughts for today: 1. Today, November 10, in the aftermath of our tumultuous and still undetermined Presidential Election, is the 227th anniversary of the bloody French Revolution’s Fête de la Raison in which radicals transformed France’s churches into Temples of...
