Hi I'm a 57 year old Australian male. I've retired from a long teaching career, firstly teaching science, maths, and physics to teenagers, and then primary school teaching. I'm a musician and songwriter, primarily in jazz. I've always been fascinated by spirituality and have had a spiritual wanderlust all my life. I've been a Christian of many sorts, ranging from fundamentalist lunatic to liberal Catholic. Over the last ten years, Ive tried being an atheist but it just didn't take. I'm now a kind of vague theist who is pretty sure he knows next to nothing about how the universe REALLY works. I guess because of this wacky statements of certainty attract my attention and I feel the need to challenge them. Nicely I hope. It is my goal here to be respectful and civil if a little cheeky.
