I was born in Holliday, Texas in 1938, the second youngest of eight children. We lived in Texas about a month then moved to Oklahoma. We were an itinerant oilfield family. In 1941 we moved to California, my home ever since. I took up my father's occupation for most of my working life. My wife, Reta, and I were married in 1968. We have two daughters, one son and five grandchildren. I retired in 1995 and began research and writing on cosmology and evolution as they apply to the debate about an intelligently designed universe and one of random chance. I suffered a few rejections for work I had submitted for paper publication and decided not to suffer more, even though I was convinced that my input on those subjects was noteworthy. That is where things were left until I discovered eBook publishing. Smashwords has provided a way for me to get the word out to the untrained in science that they are not helpless before what seems at times to be an onslaught of science against the reasoned faith that whatever life is and whatever its purpose, it, like the universe, did not come from nothing.

Suffocating On Mount Improbable
by Bud Stark
This book shows that Dawkins' theory for a simple to complex unbroken chain of evolutionary life is impossible, as fossil records indicate and new science proves. Dawkins' response: how can a good god create evil? Here Dawkins and theists draw from the same source, a sense of justice inherent in humanity. Our best hope for a salvation is that we can ask this question, because we cannot answer it.
Black Holes In A Brief History
by Bud Stark
Stephen Hawking, in A Brief History of Time, asks how and why the the universe began and if and how it will end, and gives the various theories that deal with these questions, including his own. But most cosmologists do not agree with Hawking’s theory nor with each other’s. But most do agree that design is not an answer. Black Holes In A Brief History asks why.

- Lamarck and the Sad Tale of the Blind Cave-Fish
on March 17, 2015
This book is a must read for those interested in evolution, especially if you consider yourself a Darwinist or a NeoDarwinist or are not sure of the difference between the two. I remember reading Richard Dawkins' name only once in this book, but his name kept cropping up in back of my mind. For those many followers of his, you need to see what he is struggling to hide, the discoveries in epigenetics that will undermine evolution by natural selection and Dawkins' campaign to make the entire progress of nature random and directionless.
