Alan Forrest Smith.
Is a writer, author, deep thinker that has his roots in philosophy. His life has been varied. Once a hairdresser for over 20-years, a fundamentalist and fully ordained minister for 21-years and now a philosopher, author and writer. A philosophical writer of short stories, poetry, philosophy (Zoomanity) and his 10-year old blog packed with writings and thoughts.
Alan is currently working on three new books.
In his own words…
“I started writing around the year 1978 when I formed a punk band. I started thinking a long time before then. Too much thinking and dreaming always got me into trouble at school. I failed all kind of writing and academia. I write around one and a half million words annually including blogs and emails. I’ve written books, manuals, poetry and philosophical ramblings over the past decades for myself. In 2012 I had my very first book published – Escape from Zoomanity.
I studied religion as an ordained minister for over twenty years. What I believe right now may not what I believe tomorrow. I think we all create everything we have and don’t have. I don’t think everything can be explained and those that think it can are fools! Science is a thought that is easily reversed. Religion is a control that can easily be reversed.”
