    This is my first attempt to use/post on this list

    NAME: Josh Bembenek

    AGE: 27

    VOCATION: Graduate Student

    EDUCATION: B.S. Molecular Biology, Texas A&M University. Currently working
    on my PhD studying the Cell Cycle. I am specifically interested in exit
    from mitosis signalling and cyclin degradation. One publication so far.....

    RELIGION: Bible-thumping Christian, non-denominational.

    FAMILY: One wife of one year, slight sarcasm intended.

    FAITH JOURNEY: Grew up in a nature/ self worship system of beliefs. My
    parents got divorced and my stepmother introduced us to Mormonism which I
    adhered to with rigourous legalistic righteous zeal. I trusted my life to
    Christ joining the mormon church, but quickly learned a system of works
    designed to allow me acceptance into the Celestial Kingdom. When it came to
    decide to go on a mission at 19 I decided not to go on the mission and
    recieved much peer/social pressure at which point I began to realize that I
    felt brainwashing was more important than truth in the mormon church. Two
    years later I became inactive and challenged God to show himself to me and
    lead me to him if he really existed. Later I read the new testament and
    rededicated my life to Christ, although it was a continual advance in
    realization of the truth and rejection of mormon theology from that point
    on. I am now involved with Watermark Community Church and am trying to
    follow God's lead for developing a ministry there concerning evolution,
    science and christianity from an equipping and evangelical standpoint.
    Found ASA randomly and decided I could keep a pulse on ideas from scientist
    christians while also listening to the various camps like intelligent
    design,, Hugh Ross, etc. Most interested in origins and
    abiogenesis, but also other issues.
