Recovering Fundamentalist. Looking forward to learning
Recovering fundamentalist here...

23, homeschool grad with a background in the culture war and connections all the way to the top of the YEC movement and every social conservative cause you can find. When they were raising me to be a champion for biblical literalism, I established myself on a leadership track.

Now I'm here learning science and philosophy as an adult with insight into what the other side thinks. Let me know if you want to know the fundamentalist psyche, and I'll have questions as well. Smile

Welcome.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Welcome, I'm a former fundamentalist as well, and there always seem to be at least one of these YEC roaming about the forum.
