I've never fully understood religion. I come from an area concentrated with southern baptists, and frankly, they're loopy. I've had a very intelligent guy explain to me about how the government is supressing information and that Dinosaurs are still alive in Africa, and claim that fossils are less than 4000 years old. I've had a girl explain to me that why gays should be killed by the state, and why it's not murder. I know southern baptists don't necessarily reflect all Christians, because surprisingly enough, the most open minded Christians I've met here on campus are the Catholics, who choose to make their own interpretations for the Bible. Yet they still think they're eating Jesus every Sunday.
I wouldn't say I hate Christians, because hating a group of people for their beliefs and/or convictions would be no less than another form of bigotry. I'm not here to bash Christians, but I am here to hear amusing stories. Who here has talked with a fundamentalist and heard what they believe? Have they told you any crazy stories? What is the most absurd thing you've heard from followers? I really want to know that Southern Baptist crazy is the worst and know that it's really not that bad elsewhere.

My parents (mother, more specifically) tried to raise me as a morman.. but I never really stuck with it.. as I grew older I questioned so many things and tried to apply rationale to the explanations given.. by the time I was 14 I realized I was an atheist.
I'm just glad my parents allowed me to think for my own and not continue to push it on me.
