Dr. W. Davis
or The Search For Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence is an ongoing project
that is being undertaken by professionals from many different backgrounds,
most of which, including those at UC Berkeley, have tried to build large
computers that analyze that data from the radio telescopes in real time.
UC Berkeley SETI team has discovered that there are already thousands of
computers that might be available for use. Most of these computers sit
around most of the time accomplishing absolutely nothing besides wasting
electricity. This is where SETI@home
(and you!) come into the picture. The SETI@home project hopes to
convince you to allow us to borrow your computer when you aren't using it
and to help us "…search out new life
and new civilizations." We'll do this
with a screen saver that can go get a chunk of data from us over the
internet, analyze that data, and then report the results back to us.

The Suppression of Free Thought
Mysticism and Religion
W.S. Davis, Th.D
As a Cosmotheologian, and having been trained as a Christian Minister, Bill Davis is perfectly qualified to bring into focus the long and often bloody oppression that the Church has exerted on science and free thought. His new book,
HERETICS, which explores the question of what science has revealed that was so threatening to the Church, covers the time from the birth of the Christian movement to the civil rights movement. Due for publication in October, 2001. Forward by Dorion Sagan.
