I was born into a Christian fundamentalist, young-earth Creationist, die-hard Republican home. I grew up in a church where people spoke in tongues, had “faith healings”, made “prophecies”, and people were “slain in the spirit”. (Like this and this.) I went to a Christian school and Christian college. But, I am none of those things. I started having creeping doubts in high-school, and by the end of college (a Christian college), I was a closet atheist. I am a single 30-something evolutionist, agnostic/atheist, and moderate-democrat. (And, no, I don’t go out of my way to antagonize or advertise my beliefs to my family. In fact, I tend to avoid those discussions, because, well, what’s the point?)
