This book is basically a defence of my faith
Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) October 5, 2010
Uncommon Sense, a new book by Keith Allen, has been released by RoseDog Books.
“This book is basically a defence of my faith,” says author Keith Allen. “As such, it automatically becomes my personal raison d’être. My main purpose in writing it was to get my thoughts and feelings (two metaphysical 'objects' that are surely interrelated) on paper and in some semblance of order.
“Despite 'appearances,' it is not intended as a tirade against atheistic beliefs (I was once such a believer) but as an appeal to reason—or what is generally called 'common sense.' As such sense seems to be getting ever less common, the reason for the book’s title becomes self-evident.”
For as long as he can remember, Keith Allen has had a fascination with numbers. He has also had a profound desire to know “who I am” and “why I am.” His sixteen years as an atheist were the “dark ages” of his life, as such beliefs provided him neither reason nor hope. “As a 'plain' BSc (in mathematics), I do not have the sort of knowledge some referred to in this book possess, but logic is available to all!” says Allen.
He and his wife have five sons, one daughter, and seven grandchildren (soon to be eight). They emigrated to New Zealand in 1989 and have never regretted it—it is a beautiful country. He has been a teacher of mathematics for more than forty years—it never got boring!
