TRUTH by Reason and by Revelation: 50 Years Ago Today

Posted: 23 April 2015

By Professor Frank B. Salisbury
Fifty years ago today (23 Apr 65) I received this book written by a prominent scientist at Colorado State University and sent to me by Howard E. Salisbury, the author's uncle and close personal friend. It was sent to my laboratory office at General Atomic, in La Jolla, CA, where I had just begun a career as a new PhD researching nuclear fuels for power reactors. Howard wanted me to review it as one Mormon scientist to another. But I was not happy with the request, since I had no conflict with my scientific training and Mormon religion at that time

Nevertheless, the book would precipitate major changes in my life, family, profession, personal philosophy and religion.
