I have always had an interest in how everything began.    This site is intended to promote this.

In the left panel there are some (not all) of the people, branches of science and disciplines which have impressed me.     There are many more, but these are the ones which have impressed me up until this time.     I am certain that there will be more, some that I haven't had time to place there and some that I don't even know about yet.     Together they form part of my system of beliefs and values.

Please check this site out. .    I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks
