I'm Angela! Basically I was raised in the Baptist church. I was extreme too, though as a kid I had screaming fits, mental problems and was not very popular among other children. I never got baptized though, lol, because I would scream at the notion of getting dunked.
Anyway, in college I joined Campus Crusade for Christ. I even wrote a paper in an Evolution vs. Creation class trying to defend Noah's Ark. I was really involved.
Anyway, my major was Zoology of all things. That sounds weird for an xtian, but I loved animals, especially birds and wanted a career involving them. But I could not survive a major in Zoology with my faith totally intact. Too much evidence for Evolution.
Through the years, I gradually drifted further and further away from my former faith. Loosing my mind and having to be medicated really helped things a long, why would God do this to me???
Anyway, for a while, I considered neo-paganism and atheism, not sure what path to take. After realizing that the psychics and stuff really didn't pan out and some beliefs in that area I could not accept, I decided to follow the no God path.
But the problem is my family doesn't know, and my best friend is heavy in the church, a Charismatic to the extreme. I don't know how to tell them
Well, that's it basically, I hope I have a good time here!
