Aleron Zemplin lives, with his wife and two children, in the United States where he teaches at a major university. Over the past decade he has developed the secular humanist philosophy of the Double Triangle, which appears in his first book, An Accidental God.
The Double Triangle shows how each of us is a gateway between a vast past and an expansive future. It represents a secular outlook in which original thought is the most sacred act. The underpinning of these ideas are: the unknowablity of ultimate truth, randomness as a builder of structure and a driver of change, and the implications of the Double Triangle for our ideas and for our afterlives.
Through a series of accidents, a boy from the dawn of civilization became the God worshiped today by billions. Coincidental events and human misunderstanding take the place traditionally occupied by the hand of God. When Abraham sees that only one of the idols on his altar remains standing during an earthquake, he is launched on a journey that takes him to new lands and new ways of thinking.
