"Is God Real?
As a former Atheist, then Agnostic; I turned from what I called faith because my questions didn't fit with "normal". As a child I found almost no person who could answer my deepest questions about Christianity. That, as it would with many children, put me into a state of rebellion. So I made the assumption that with so few answers, God and Christ must be a fairly tale.
Over the years I found tons of information and peer agreement that backed my disbelief... until I put the middle man aside and started my own search.
On this website, I've published the information that came from my own extensive, consistent research and experience. You're welcome to it, but remember... just as I can't tell you how you should build a relationship with my friend Patrick, I can't tell you how to do it with my spiritual Father. I can only introduce you to Patrick. I can only introduce you to God.
You can pick out whatever you like, but I've put these things in the order I feel will best help build a foundation. So I recommend looking in that order. And if you have any questions at all, I'm not afraid to risk not having an answer. Just ask.

For over seven years I attended the Seattle chapter of IANDS, hearing regular stories like the following from a friend of mine, Kim...
Is God Real?
Here's where the technical evidence started for me. After decades of working at a design level with electronics and mechanics, I started finding endless common traits between human made technology and the natural world. So I came up with a set of videos that help begin to explain how I see the connections.

It's both a visual and an imaginative look at how the universe functions like a human made computer.
