Carl Martin's Blog

John Dalmas, author



I wanted a website to showcase the writing I was doing and the
other writers in our little writing club wanted to join in as well.

The idea was to present the books in an abbreviated format as a small
presentation to prospective agents as well as the general reader.


As it turns out, finding an agent and/or publisher was a losing proposition
and the group turned to publishing the books ourselves. Martian Publishing
has already published several of the authors and has quite a few more in the
pipeline to publish as soon as the editorial process, proofreading, and such are done.


Projects underway by authors not yet ready to publish will be comtinued at this site
but all the soon-to-be-published works have been migrated to the Martian Publishing
website. The remainder will continue here until they too have been published.

CONVERSATIONS WITH THE ALMIGHTY - BLOG
by James Allocar
CONVERSATIONS WITH THE ALMIGHTY
by James Allocar
LEFT-BRAIN FAITH
by James Allocar
 
A blog with a fresh look at the idea of the purposes of our lives and the relationship with each have with the Almighty. The viewpoint is different from mainstream writings of the faithful because this author comes from a background of science and mathematics and offers a view that is fundamentally foreign to believers and non-believers alike.

This is an attempt to bridge the gap between the faithful and the faithless, and a view that sees them essentially one and the same. They both look for truth, and though the questions are in different forms, they are the same questions.
see more
Most religions have some method for the believers to get in touch with the Almighty. Whether through prayer, meditation, or some method of obeisance and sacrifice, mortal Man can make contact with the Creator. But I believe that this conversation is ongoing. The Eastern religions teach how to maintain a meditative state all the time; Christian scholars claim prayer is supposed to be continual, as stated in the scriptures. I believe this is not a difficult thing to accomplish because the Almighty communicates with us all the time with the universe itself as the medium of that conversation. In all things around us we can find the answers to our questions and concerns, all that is required by us is to look to see the answer.
see more
Those of faith have a hard time understanding those who do not share the faith they have embraced. Whether proclaimed atheist or agnostic, these people seem to be residents in some weird parallel dimension. They turn their nose up at the people who rely on faith rather than pure scientific enquiry.

Actually, there is no real problem here except for the definition of some of the terms used by those of faith and those of science.
