More About the Author
John Verderame was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1955. From the time he was a young child he has had a sense of wonder about the universe that led to an interest in, and the study of, astronomy, biology, geology, and theology, and a fascination with the space program. He has a B.S. in Biology and a Master's in Theology. John has traveled extensively, including riding a bicycle across the U.S.A., and living in Italy for a number of years, where his lifelong admiration of Galileo Galilei and his willingness to "go against the tide" was solidified. He has broad work experience ranging through everything from lead singer and organist in a rock band, to health inspector, quality control lab technician, metallurgy, telescope manufacture, and code enforcement officer for the Cody, Wyoming police department (now retired). John is an amateur astronomer, avid book and rock collector and enjoys a number of other hobbies. He has been involved as a writer, researcher and speaker concerning the Creation / Evolution debate for almost 40 years.
