It's a bit interesting I FINALLY registered on here. I remember back in probably 02 I got a Myspace(what is that..? lol) invite to join RR Squad...and did happily....
Raised Christian Scientist until about 7, then we moved away and for some odd reason(still unexplained, even asked father about it recently...) we stopped going to those services and pretty much church in general. My mom was a convert so she would sneak me Tylenol and stuff like that lol...ahh memories.
So from about 10-18 I was kinda Christian fairweather didn't attend much, prayed here and there(especially before the big game with my teammates gotta love it...) and so on. I tried to get into Young Life a bit when I was 16/17 but all the prostilitizing and giant fallicies/illogics of the whole process kept slamming me in the 'ol noggin despite my best efforts to just "have faith" and look at all the feel good chummy positive things offered. Bleh. What a waste. More due to the fact one of my best friends was pretty strong Young Lifer(and still is...*shakes head) and it's no wonder he somehow hasn't returned my emails in over 2 years....odd...
In that same highschool timeframe I saw my Christian SCience grandmother refuse treatment for breast cancer and when given 6 months to live, went on for another 3 painfull years...luck? Determination? Who knows. Maybe not living aruond a chain smoker would have helped in the first place...who somehow doesn't have cancer...off on a tagent here by how can so many Chain smokers for 50 yrs NOT be riddled with cancer, yet Lance Armstrong gets it? That's just complete nonsense lol.
Anyways, after a bit of a Spiritual Awakening/Quest there late in Highschool(loved Zen and Art of Mortorcyel Maint for JR Class!) I went into college at Oregon State pretty much a full fledged Agnostic. Yes I know this is a bit misconstrued of a term but
