Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595097839, Paperback)

Born of Fire is a work that presents the astounding, yet rational proposal that humankind has been evolving not for thousands or millions of years, but since the time when the universe emerged. Called a proposal, the story lends credible evidence to its primary thesis such that the reality of our very ancient origin may be accepted as fact.

With profound implications, this pedigree of extreme lineage then places our disembodied human forms, our ultra-durable quarks and leptons, in near proximity to a first-cause Creator. Leaning heavily on scientific exposition throughout its chapters, the human brain is touted as Nature's greatest cosmic enterprise, through which we have achieved the status of God's extended intelligence into his created world.

Though not a metaphysical tour de force, in bringing about this relationship between divine and mortal intelligence, time, natural laws, mind, consciousness, self, free will, and artificial intelligence are called into question, as well as God's omnipotence and omniscience. The story ends with a critique of current orthodox religions and their ability to prosper in future times of greater enlightenment plus the unthinkable, yet possible emergence of science as a source of future religious expression.
