What is the meaning of life? Is there even a meaning at all.....or are we just beings who live and reproduce other beings, who then live and reproduce more beings, etc., etc.? If we take a good look at what exists outside of this ball that we live on (which, amazingly, is just floating in space, sitting on nothing), we come to realize just how very small and weak we are, amidst a huge sea of great power and unfathomable size. Therefore, we (humanity) can’t be responsible for all of this being here. But if not us, then who or what is? And, even more importantly, how do we fit into the picture? We keep making probes into the universe, but no intelligent life ever responds or appears. Is there in fact anyone out there?

This book is the result of a study by a leave-no-stone-unturned scientist who started asking these questions 35 years ago, and then continued asking until he had the scientific answers to them. His mind and heart wouldn’t let him rest until he absolutely knew that he had these answers…and that there weren’t any more pertinent questions to ask. Now that he has them, he says that these answers are so powerful that he experiences an inner fulfillment that is very deep, and a vision of life that is very clear (two things that he didn’t have before knowing these answers). They also keep him from being inundated by the prevalent dysfunctions in this world. The only affect that those dysfunctions have on him now is that they drive him to want to spread these answers, to try to prevent the great amount of unnecessary suffering and abuse that so many people go through. And the main way to prevent it is for people to be able to see above the unnatural agreements and activities of this world; to understand specifically how we were designed to function; to satisfy the deep hunger we have to know and fulfill our natural purpose in life; and to understand why, for a relatively short time, we’re even here.

Dennis Marcellino started out as an award-winning mathematician and engineer. In a very inspired search to find the ultimate truths about this life and our place in it, he took his analytical abilities and science knowledge and delved deeply into nearly every major and minor form of psychology, philosophy, spirituality, religion and lifestyle. Now, 35 years later, he presents the results of his search in a book, which scientifically answers the question “Why are we here......

alive on planet earth...
in the middle of an unfathomably large universe....
that we (without our cause) entered at birth
and (without our being able to stop it) will leave at death

Presentation Includes:
• A scientific proof of the existence of God
• An explanation of what ‘scientific proof’ is and how some things that the mainstream accepts as fact are really unproven theories (e.g. atoms, evolution, etc.)
• Real answers to some difficult philosophical questions, such as: Who made God?; How can a loving God allow evil?; How can a loving God invent diseases, natural disasters, and personal traumas?
• What is the meaning of life? (It all boils down to one sociological principle)
• What is the purpose of our life (individually)?

Reviews for Dennis’ book, Why Are We Here?

“This is a very important book that is greatly needed at this time.
Mark Victor Hansen, World-renowned speaker, and Co-author of New York Times #1 Best-Selling Chicken Soup For The Soul series

“Dennis Marcellino has the answer. Actually, with an education that ranges from science and engineering to theology and psychology, Marcellino has many answers. But in his new book, Why Are We Here?, he chooses to answer the one question that has puzzled intellectuals for centuries.” – Laura Gunderson, Clackamas Review

“In using science to explore what is usually an emotionally charged subject, Marcellino provides a strong fact-based philosophical approach which is compelling.– Diane Donovan, The Philosopher’s Bookshelf, Midwest Book Review
