Glad of my current stance, but think about the past.
I was raised in a christian home, and for about 30 years, I believed it completely. You can read my introduction story in the Introductions part of these forums. Anyway, now that I am no longer a christian, . . . I have to wonder how my past belief negatively affected my life today. I'm 44 years old. I got a degree in a study that was "safe" for a christian. But the other day, I was pondering what my life COULD have been like if I hadn't been scared away from the sciences? It makes no difference in the present. What is done is done. But I know that my lifeline was greatly affected by a religious belief that wasn't even true. Would I have gone into physics? Geology?

Does anyone else have similar thoughts? Those of you who were a christian in your younger days, wondering where your life would have taken you if you hadn't been influenced by an irrational fear?
