Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

When I was 10 or 12, our family stopped practicing religion, so I was never really what you'd call pious. But it took me almost 50 years to shake up the last remaining shreds of superstitious belief in a vague divinity or in the possibility of an afterlife.

These notions are deeply embedded =(

@Hope, I wouldnt go so far to call my parents moderate, somewhere in the middle ground. Even today I have a very strong grasp on Christian holy book(s). Im not quite the christian version of a Hafiz, but Im close enough to hold my ground and win debates without bringing up science or logic. It took me a while to recover, it was like walking on broken glass for me.

I was a religious person raised by religious -but moderate- parents.. I think that people who've been religious need a lot of time to heal..
