Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

“This Voyager spacecraft was constructed by the United States of America, a community of 240 million human beings among the 4.2 billion who inhabit our planet Earth. We are still divided into nation states, but are rapidly becoming a single global civilization which covers our tiny but very beautiful world . . . We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours. We hope someday, having solved the problems which face us, to join a community of galactic civilizations.”

“I have no idea why, but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t get the idea of a frog-shaped god to catch on with these people.  Gods with wings, yes; gods with horns, gods with crocodile heads and cat heads and thirty-seven different heads all arguing with each other; gods in the shape of every other king of critter that walks the face of the Earth, in fact, not to mention burning bushes and pillars of fire, but not frogs.  As far as humanity is concerned, God may move in mysterious ways, but He doesn’t hop.”
