Overview

The Universe is made up of a lot more than just matter, including: Matter, Energy, Waves, Electrical, Space, Time, Rules/Laws/Equations, Souls?, Links To God?
The "Rules/Laws" are, in many ways, more important than "Matter" in the universe
The universe didn't always exist, since it would have been for an infinity of time.
There is no Infinity (or "Paradoxes" or "Everything"). This is against the definition.
Time, space, matter and the "rules" (gravity, time/velocity, atom behavior, sub particle actions, etc.) are part of the Universe and they started when the universe started.
The universe didn't start by itself. There must have been a master planner and creator we will call "God".
This "God" is really something extra capable (not an old man with whiskers in a rocking chair or a vindictive/shallow/changes his mind/gets mad/etc. "guy").
God can't do everything, this is against the definition of everything.
Evolution is nature's/God's method of development.
Everything wasn't done by evolution alone using only chance-with-natural-selection following.
We won't be able to get/receive radio signals from/with aliens from other solar systems, or have their actual bodies here on earth, because of the "400-year window" mismatch.
There aren't/won't ever be any "time machines" since there is a basic impossibility in two-way time travel. Also, nobody from the future or from other solar systems has communicated with us.
There aren't miracles (past or future) which violate nature's laws. After all, God set up the rules and wouldn't/couldn't/didn't need to violate them.
Miracles can be performed due to "adjustment of probabilities" or "advanced technology".
Future (100 to 300 years) computers and related development will allow us to make almost anything happen, absolutely "like magic".
Whatever the afterlife for "souls," heaven has no physical matter; therefore there is no heaven as envisioned with "physical images" or "talking with words" or "St. Peter at the gate." We don't know about the exact future for souls, after all, nobody has ever come back.
If actions are always deterministic and not by free will, then people's actions don't make any difference but, if free will does exist, then it does make a difference. So, to be on the safe side, it's wise to assume free will.

Meet the Author

Paul E. Williams was married for 54 years, with five children, 13 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. His wife, Rosemary, was a wonderful partner, mother and grandmother. Unfortunately, about 13 years ago, she started developing Alzheimer's and died in January, 2010.
Starting in the late 1960s, Paul E. Williams was the chief architect of and directed the development of a hospital information system. This comprehensive system used CRT terminals with light pens throughout the hospital for doctors to enter their orders, nurses to chart patients' records, medication personnel to chart medications, and all other departments to assist in their duties of patient care. This system was first called the "MIS System" and later, the "TDS Healthcare System." It was first introduced at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, California in 1970. At that time, it was very early for hospital professionals to use computers directly - and very expensive in relation to other hospital costs and prices. Eventually, the system came into its own as other costs went up and was used in 350 hospitals in the U.S. and Great Britain, including Indiana Methodist in Indianapolis (at 1200 beds, the largest), and National Institutes of Health Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland (perhaps the most prestigious). This system is still used at approximately 30-50 hospitals, even though it is 40-years old.
Books published by Paul E. Williams include "If I Had Been Born a Muslim,, 2010. Paul E. Williams graduated from the University of Denver in 1952 with a major in mathematics and a minor in philosophy.
