Musings of a 98 year old Scientist
Reflections on Life, God, and the World from a Different Viewpoint by John E. Burgener




Musings of a 98-Year-Old Scientist is a mix of stories and discussions by a scientist who was deeply religious, and lived a unique life. John E. Burgener was born on March 10, 1917. The world was at war and women had just earned the right to vote. Electricity was still a relatively new invention, cars were a luxury, and airplanes a novelty. John lived in a perfect period to experience almost a century of incredible innovation and growth, and he personally contributed significantly to the advancement of science and technology.

In this book, John muses about some of the more difficult questions we face about God and religion, ethics and culture, marriage and children, as well as politics, science, and the inexplicable beyond.

John recorded these biographical anecdotes and reflections in his final years, while looking back over his experiences. He shares his wisdom and immense knowledge, earned over ninety-eight full years, in the hope that his experiences and reflections may inspire us in the future.
