Allen Epling, is a former public school teacher of science and physics, and school supervisor and administrator. Mr. Epling has written numerous newspaper articles and published 3 research papers on physics and the structure of the universe. His passion is keeping up with the latest developments in particle physics and Cosmology.
His formal education consists of an MA degree in Mathematics, Secondary Education, and holds a Rank I degree in Educational Supervision plus 32 hours in post graduate work.
His interest in history and the Bible go back to his undergraduate days when his formal science education began to conflict with his religious beliefs. His hobbies are Astronomy, reading science journals, guitar and music, and Amateur Radio. He holds the "ham" radio call sign WB4WAU and is also a private pilot.
In his words:
"I started about 10 years ago thinking seriously about writing a book on the subject of reconciling the controversy between creationism and evolution. I felt that I knew the science, history, and the book of Genesis well enough, and had some original ideas that I wanted to make public. I felt it would be a book worth publishing.
I could never commit however, to putting the pen to the paper until one night, while on a vacation, My wife told me in no uncertain terms, to begin the book. I got out of bed at 3:00 AM and sat down at my laptop, and began to construct an outline. Over the next 5 years that outline became the book "Beyond Genesis: The Untold Story of Man's Origins"
It seems that there is still enough uncertainty in both science and religion to allow for the possibility (probability?) that God Exists and did indeed create the (multiple?)universe(s)".
It was when I was in college some 45 years ago that the I began to nurture the idea that if science were only advanced enough, it would prove the Bible to be true, and if it is true, those who have already accepted the messages and ideas contained in it on faith are not quite as foolish as the pseudo-intellectual elite seem to think they are.
I believe that day has just about arrived."
