Ash Wednesday


Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.*

  1. Hi,

    I was happy to come across your blog as I too am a scientist interested in fractals/chaos/emergence as well as the overlap of science and religion.

    Are you familiar with Chet Raymo? If not, I am sure you will want to read him. He grew up in an intensely cathloic household and became a scientist, as did I. He has also spent considerable effort in trying to reconcile spirituality and science, again, as have I. Where we diverge is that he is not only a better scientist but also much more eloquent! Today's posting is especially nice, in which he discusses Anita Diamant's wonderful novel, The Red Tent:

    I am looking forward to more of your thoughts on emergence...
