Ron Frost - bio


    I grew up in northern New Jersey in the 60s in an area that, at the time, was at the edge of the New York Suburbs.  I loved spending my free time wandering in the hills and forests that have long since sprouted miles upon miles of housing developments. I decided to become a geologist because this appeared to be a good way to make a living while still enjoying the out-of-doors.

My major recreation interests are skiing in the winter and canoeing in the summer.  I figure I have paddled more than 8,000 miles in innumerable trips in the western US, some very long trips in northern Canada, and two more exotic trips in Siberia and Tasmania.  In addition to my passions of geology, boating and skiing,

I have one other passion – spirituality.  I have been studying Shambhala Buddhism for more than 25 years.  Although I have a regular meditation practice and have made many long meditation retreats, I can hardly say I have any control over my mind.  It seems as busy and wild as ever.  However, I have realized that there are aspects of my mind that arise from outside my ego.  This realization has a major implication on how one interprets the scientific evidence for evolution.  This the major reason I wrote the book Religion versus Science, Where Both Sides go Wrong in the Great Evolution Debate.
