An unworthy Deacon, named for the brother of God: James, striving to "work out his salvation with fear and trembling" within the Tradition (paradosis) of the Eastern Orthodox Faith. It is a strange and marvelous journey, and I am accompanied by the fourfold fruit of my fecundity. My wife, the Matushka or Diaconissa Sophia, is my beloved partner in the pursuit of Theosis, and she ranks me in every way.
People should learn the risk factors for autism/early childhood schizophrenia in UTAH your numbers are high and the causes are known. Autism is the new name for early childhood schizophrenia and both conditions rise with the age of the father at the conception of a child. Seung-hui Cho's father was either 38 or 39 when he was born. This is much older than the age that autism risk is high. The risk begins to rise by 35. Some sperm banks do not allow men to donate sperm past the age of 35. Men would be wise to cryobank their sperm in their mid 20s for later fathering of babies.

The paternal age distribution of the AGRE fathers, whose first child is autistic differs significantly from that of the 'control' sample (P=0.005). A 2 goodness-of-fit test with 2 degrees of freedom was conducted using percents in the 'control' group age categories to calculate the expected values in the AGRE sample. The shift toward higher paternal ages in those with an affected first-born is seen most dramatically in the group of AGRE fathers who are 30–39 years inclusive, which is 54.7% of the distribution compared with the 41.9 % that is expected. We interpret this shifted age distribution to provide support for the recently reported finding by Reichenberg and co-workers that autism risk is associated with advancing paternal age.
