A personal note: My goal is to write books and commentaries that are entertaining as well as insightful, that explore the interface between science, religion and human development. Books that are not afraid to speak to the miracle of life and the humor and suspense of everyday living. An ancient Yiddish proverb may sum this up best: Man plans and God laughs. The Digital Pandemic (non-fiction) and the Sheltering Tower (fiction) are examples of the science-religion interface.

We need strategies and solutions to deal with the disconnection of the digital age and to reestablish face-to-face contact and repair meaningul personal relationships.
