About the Author
More than thirty years ago, I was reading a book on science when the words “ours is a watery planet’ seemed to stand out on the page. Ours is a watery planet. THAT WAS IT! In the Bible, the symbol for life is water. It is a perfect symbol. The Bible speaks of there being ‘many waters’ in the heavens, and there are ‘peoples and nations and tongues’.
We are not alone, and I was intrigued! Persistently, I searched the Good Book for other hidden treasures that we may have lost through misinterpretation. I found more than I had expected to find and, for the next year, I indulged myself in gathering notes on bits of paper and storing them in a cardboard box in a drawer.
I furtively believe that the world was millions of years old, dinosaurs once roamed the earth, and that we are primates. I also believed that the Bible was the Word of God which supposedly contradicted the theory of evolution. What was the truth?
Three decades passed…The coming of the 21st century, however, has also brought turmoil between religion and science. It was time to retrieve the old cardboard box and, in 1998, I began to write The Many Waters.

WHY DID YOU WRITE “THE MANY WATERS?”
In our scientific age, the Bible is thought of as a book of myth, and more fiction than fact. What I have discovered, however, is that science might have something to learn from the Good Book and from other ancient writings taken from scrolls, papyri, and tablets of stone.
WHAT DOES THE TITLE MEAN?
The “many waters” is the biblical symbol for all the watery planets that harbor life in the universe. I have entitled my book “The Many Waters” to substantiate that the bible speaks of the creation and evolution of all life in the universe – we are not alone, and we never have been. The Bible then goes on to explain how our planet, just one of the many waters, evolved.
WHAT ARE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS FOR WRITING THIS BOOK?
If I need to have letters after my name then let them be C. (curiosity) and N.F.T. (need for truth). Anyone can dig through the sands of time for hidden treasures.
WHAT MAKES THIS BOOK DIFFERENT?
The writer of the creation story was, without a doubt, a very religious Jew, and whether it was Moses remains in question, but he was an extraordinary human being. He had the science of creation in perfect order and accuracy, and he combined his truly inspired knowledge into the art of poetry and prose with the symbology and soul of a mystic. For centuries some of the biblical symbolism has been misinterpreted or taken literally. Neither scientist nor religious scholar have understood, or even noticed, the true meaning of some of these symbols and figures of speech. “The Many Waters” is the first book to decipher biblical symbolism and allegory by referring to ancient writings, and incorporating scientific technology that we can now understand. For example, woman being made from the rib of man is impossible when considering the universal laws of nature, but what is not impossible is that Adam’s rib was used to obtain DNA. What makes us think that we are the first in the universe to experiment with genetic engineering?
