So am I. Actually, oddly enough, I grew up a pretty conservative Christian (not so conservative I thought dinosaurs were a hoax) but nonetheless,
creation, etc. . . . I spent 5 years at a Pentecostal college getting a bachelor's degree in World Missions (to be a missionary).....
Shortly after that, I had some very painful things happen in the church while at the same time started to question everything and realizing missions
wasn't in my future....so what was!? Through another series of round-a-bout events I landed on Anthropology. SOOOOO glad I did. I LOVE it! And
then of course, you can't be an anthropologist and not change your point of view (like you were saying), lol, it's impossible. So now I have two
BA's....one in a religious field and one in a scientific field, lol - I'm also currently working on my MSc in Forensic Archaeology and CSI.
I'm still a Christian but I have next to nothing to do with the church, because "church" and its values aren't anywhere remotely near to what
I've come to know about Christ.....and to be completely honest, I know there are good people in the church, but mostly they just kind of sicken me,
lol - I can tell you one thing, though . . . the people in the churches I grew up in, they hate seeing what I've become . . . which is awesome, and
"enlightened",. educated, and tolerant, etc. etc. I like seeing them squirm
Sorry, didn't mean to go on and on....
