Why I believe the Bible is true
About the author

I grew up with a love of science.  I remember when I was about five, getting frustrated with my dad’s inability to pronounce dinosaur names although they were clearly described in my books we were reading.  When I was eleven, I won our local science fair’s biological junior category with my presentation on ants, complete with polystyrene models depicting their anatomy.  During high school I parted ways with biology, struggling to deal with evolutionist indoctrination.  I’m delighted that my daughter has the tools to cope with this and to thrive in biology.

I began a music degree, which after some failure I redirected to graduate university with a BA in Maths.  I call this a Bachelor of Anything, due to my eclectic mix of Music, Computer Science, and German.

I love God and have contemplated him my entire life – more-so since choosing to accept Jesus as my personal saviour, rather than inheriting the God of my parents who were life-long pastors in the Salvation Army.

After a short stint as a youth worker for the Salvation Army in Germany, where I stepped on too many toes, I began my career as a Software Engineer.  After 22 years, this continues to sustain my family, while I pursue my “real job” ministering as a church musician and theologizing on Facebook.

I may seem unqualified to claim the majority of academia is wrong, but my views are shared by many renowned theological scholars and well-credentialed scientists.  My logical reasoning is particularly relatable to my mathematically-minded peers.  I hope to dispel myths against the integrity of the Bible and I would be delighted if I provoke a desire to seek God and investigate his perspective.  It is important to me that you don’t blindly accept what I say, or anyone else, but research this for yourself.

Acts 17:11 Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

I guarantee that some of what I write is wrong and am happy to consider any improvements rooted in the truth of the Bible.
