Special Note: Yes, the title of this post is deliberately provocative. Sometimes I just like to poke the bear and see if it really is asleep or just lying in wait.
I was raised Catholic and questions of faith and religion truly do enthuse me; I enjoy the debate and the conflict that surrounds religion. I willingly get into conflicts with my friends and family over religion and hope that my views on the matter have evolved over time in response to new information and my own personal growth as a person. I also strongly believe that my brain wasn’t fully baked in place until my mid-twenties, and may still be cooling today.
