I started my questioning journey when I was of very young age. I grew up with a very close and significant friend who used to participate with me in debates about deep logical arguments about the origins of the universe. I went  to the university for 15 years and was able to get my Ph.D., Masters and Bachelor degrees in the science field. It was not easy, but I managed to have full scholarship for my Ph.D. During my undergraduate time, I majored chemistry and was a freak of math together with another friend who used to compete with me at the library solving calculus problems. During graduate school, I worked with magnetic materials and their quantum mechanics. For doctoral school I decided to go to biology, which produced for me a dissertation in cellular toxicity. When I finished, I went to teach college chemistry until the present time. During my spare time, I started having fun with the physics of particles and waves. My self-motivation led me to have a very ample view of the science field from the low levels of physics, through the laws of chemistry, to the life as explained in biology. With this view, I created a theory that explains life logically and that incidentally happens to agree with religious doctrines. This is when I started to argue that science and religion are not in conflict as has been depicted in the history of the human race mostly by figures that have no expertise in any of those fields.

A few years ago I created a foundation to support a publication that I produced about philosophy of physics, much of the work appears re-published here broken down into separate topics. The full technical article can be downloaded here:

In my work I dedicated much effort to go back into the original publications of fundamental physics, particularly the theory of the electromagnetic field as originally presented by Maxwell in the 1800’s. My work is the product of many variables, but in particular, it is  the result of the will to clarify my own confusions about the existence of God, myself, and the rest of the universe. I feel very obligated as a professional to offer some clarity about what science really says about the most fundamental building blocks of life. I also feel enraged about how science appears to be underestimated and misinterpreted in the media by people who do not have credentials. I grew tired with the non-ending debates that pretend to put in contrast things that really are not in conflict, feeding the continuation of doubts and ignorance, never finding clarifications or new information, like the disconnected, fragmented, and unfounded claims of radical atheism: If you can claim that you are intelligent, and that nature gave you that intelligence, then you cannot deny that there is intelligence in nature; that would be a paradox. Therefore, there must be an intelligent superior being who originated everything. When I realized this, I decided to try to find answers by myself by putting all my knowledge and intellect to work. It is time for the human race to make sense of the meaning of life from the knowledge that we have accumulated through history: We must figure out where we come from and, very importantly, where will we go after death!
