Raised in Christian fundamentalist holy-roller environment.
 
 Answered altar calls from an early age.
 
 Had an unusual dream at age 10. Saw Jesus standing in an orchard next to our house, looking at me.
 
 At 16 decided to attend Alma White Preparatory School, Pillar of Fire, Zarephath, NJ.
 
 After one year was in deep disillusionment. Left home and God at age 18.  Lived in great apostacy for nearly 20 years.
 
 While on business trips for IBM picked up UFO Contactee books in airports and was stunned by parallel descriptions castigated by mainline science and religion.
 
 Learned of Urantia Papers in 1967. Pulled back to the Bible in summer of 1967. This sequence led to a deep and unusual spiritual experience late in 1967. As a consequence I became aware that:
 
 1. A high level of intelligence was operating around our planet.
 
 2. The intelligence was from the highest religious universe administration.
 
 3. A master destiny program was underway for our planet.
 
 4. We would experience world nuclear holocaust.
 
 5. We would be subject to intense religious persecution as part of a technique to spiritually screen the human race.
 
 6. Survivors would enter a new world era, and eventually the world would be totally converted to righteousness and holiness, in blessing and love.
 
 For more personal discussion and key religious experience, refer to paper, The Great Valley of Decision.
