They didn't talk to me for a decade after that (my siblings still will not), but eventually my folks accepted their infidel son.

Welcome to TTA. We have lots of science lovers, here. Look forward to discussing the latest in evolutionary biology with you. Smile

Yikes. Yes, my mother tries to slip me books that have a religious theme, I think, in hopes of saving my soul. It's kind of insulting. I can never openly tell her I'm an atheist because it would crush her, and I could never do that. She's a kind person, despite being naive and religious. We have had heated discussions about evolution, abortion, and other things but I've never outright said I don't believe there's a god. I do wish I could have an open conversation about it, but I don't foresee that happening if I want to keep my sanity. x.x
