Thank you for the input Matt. I am glad to hear that it is not “user error”. I tried it again and I need to correct my earlier statement because Artemis GUI will stay open after the warning however Athena closes/crashes. 
I will try on a different system. 

Thanks again,

Anyway, I do not believe that "install from source" is a feasible approach for demeter on OSX. I do not know enough about Macports to update the existing package.  I don't know that using some other system would be an improvement.
