ABOUT ME

Country:  United States of America

 

My Background

 

I was raised in a Southern Baptist Church family.  My mother was the spiritual leader.  My dad did not participate in religious activities to any significant degree.  I attended church activities throughout my formative years and was baptized along the way.  I left home for college and stopped attending church activities, joined a fraternity and had a good ole time. 

 

Then through a series of circumstances, I “got religion” again during graduate school, met my future spouse, and started attending church activities again.  I still questioned whether I was really a believer and had many conversations with my fellow Christians, but eventually concluded I was a believer and was, again, baptized to show outward evidence of my beliefs.  This is when I started my journey of reading all the books on my Reading List under “on God Exists.”  I was essentially searching for the truth, but in defense of my religious beliefs.  This carried on for the next 20 years or so.

 

The Turning Point

 

During this journey, I read Origin of Species and closely examined the Theory of Evolution which piqued my interest in genetics and led to reading some genetics books.  I was reading through the Bible’s Old Testament, specifically, Genesis 30: 31 – 43, about Jacob's manipulation of Laban's animal flock using striped sticks to cause the breeding of spotted and striped offspring.  Google this story to get the details.  Having gotten “up to speed” on genetics, I found this story as representing ancient, but invalid, beliefs on how to manipulate the characteristics of animal offspring.

 

Since Genesis and other books of the bible are considered God’s revelation to man and “absolute truth,” I found it perplexing that God didn’t advise Jacob to use breeding techniques that we know today actually work.  I concluded that this story could not have come from an All-Knowing God which started my journey to question God’s existence and the reading the many books on my Reading List under “on God Doesn’t Exist.”

 

I then decided to start summarizing my research by writing it down and posting publicly on a website.
