The author of this blog, Paul Joseph, has a relatively broad background. He spent his childhood years on a small farm in rural Pennsylvania, and eventually earned a PhD in the biological sciences at The University of Texas. Among other jobs, Paul has worked for the Bureau of Forestry and has taught biology classes at two different universities. He has carried out scientific research in NASA laboratories, and he has published original research in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Paul has investigated various facets of Christianity and biblical study with the same intensity with which he pursued his scientific research. At a certain point in his life, Paul felt led of the Lord to serve the next generation in the college campus mission field, which he has done in coordination with others for many years. He has traveled widely and fellowshipped with Christians in many different countries and territories on the earth. He has also conversed with hundreds of people of other faiths, as well as atheists. Through his life experience Paul has observed a curious phenomenon that has been repeated over and over again in diverse sectors of civilization, culture, and society: ONE WORD CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING. The purpose of this blog is to extensively document this phenomenon, and, when appropriate, to incorporate a biblical application or perspective. The blog was launched in December 2011.
