An interesting treatise on the nature of life. However, the work is written within the Judeao-Christian heritage and thus has limited appeal to the broad spectrum of religious studies. Those who seek some comfort in bridging the gap between faith and science will find it here. The illustrations are well done and quite helpful.

Technical Remarks:

The paper could use some editorial assistance. For instant, American is consistently presented as american.

Please visit my Web site for how I've utilized my treatise into a most wonderful story, Dear Mergatroid ... And The Intentions Of Our Creator. The book will be published by iUniverse and should be on sale by October 2008.

Technical Remarks:

"Ok, class, ... raise your hand if you want to build robotic computer systems mimicking biological cognition ..."

In rebuttal to Bruce there, I saw the relationship first. And I saw the relationships I detail within my treatise without having cluttered my mind with a barrage of information a formal education would have brought upon me.

Some cannot see the forest from the trees.

Technical Remarks:

My story Dear Mergatroid contains a template, a conceptual blueprint within the Treatise on the Nature of Life that can theorize designs for the creation of prototype cognitive computers which mimic the living biological life forms. I like to think history will recognize my story Dear Mergatroid as the catalyst, the spark motivating generations of young people to the actual realization of this goal in a future United States of America.

That's all I'll say, for now.

Unless I am mistaken, I see this site as having nationalist statements (e.g. the
slam on Arabs). Here is a direct quote from another page: "Fingerprints from
the Creator God are upon certain works within this website." The MERLOT
workshop in Oklahoma City this past spring (2004) prompted me to return to
MERLOT to take a second look. This site, however, makes me wonder if I am just
as likely to find useful resources on the general WWW. Screening needs to be
