Looking at the skeptico thread and other resources, Bray makes it clear that this is a pen name in that forum and other places. The math they are
arguing with him is basic calculus, which he answers rather easily, but they keep asking the same questions repeatedly, obviously simply not getting
it. As for credentials, I don't see how he could supply credentials for a pen name. As for the math, as an engineer I found his math completely
straight forward, high-school level. The skeptico people dropped some 50 pages of threads in just a couple of days; obviously not working, and all
focused on a simple equation that is shown on wikipedia, but they didn't understand what was written there either.
Clearly he was a man of little patience. Having read his book more than once he shows very strong negative tolerance for people who 'sell' healing
powers, psychic abilities, and the like. He bashes them rather harshly, brutally.
Bray states clearly in the intro of the book that our reason for being here is to be as seemingly far from God as possible, so that God can expand
into that void. He states that the reasons for poverty, disease, war, follow this principle. 'We create darkness and endure it, and God expands into
that void; the definition for an infinite being.' He also states that, 'you cannot fit an infinite thing (you) inside of a finite system (this
universe) - you are not here [taken right from the text intro]. Then goes on to explain that the paradoxes 'if there is a God then why is there so
much suffering' is that 'you are not here, this is not happening, the very simple principle above shows clearly this is the case.'
It's a very thick book, intimidating, almost 800 pages of philosophy and mathematics. this wasn't written by the world's most clever pizza
delivery boy. Toward the end of the text the math he gets into is extreme, theoretical mathematics that I simply don't for the life of me comprehend
he could be writing about so fluently without some rather severe academia and experience.
I've had three engineers here where I work (Lockheed) borrow the book and were floored by the fluency of the math and some of the paradoxes they
resolved. I also had two computer guys borrow the text and didn't understand the math and thought the whole thing was a 'conspiracy.'
