Why I'm here (been lurking here off-and-on for about 2 years, and Friend of
ASA for the same):
For me, it all started with Denis Lamoureux's science and religion course in
fall 1999, where I discovered that it is possible to believe in both God and
evolution. I was an atheist, thinking that interpretations of Genesis
really mattered, and there was no way I could ever join the YECs or
progressive creationists. See, I had the feeling that "there had to be
something more"....evolution just didn't explain it all for me, yet I did
not know where to look for answers.
Denis opened the door for me, introducing hermeneutics and oh-so-many terms
and categories. He taught me some basics about Christianity (I was so
ignorant), and his passion for Jesus completely rocked my world. He was an
absolutely amazing teacher-- every night after class I'd walk home with my
head spinning... I had so much to think about.
I realized that I had a faith in evolution that was eerily similar to the
faith YECs have in a literal interpretation of the bible. I also realized
that if the whole Jesus story really is true, the implications for my life
I find involvement with ASA helps my struggle with faith, because no matter
how intellectual the conversation gets (often it's way beyond me! haha) the
bottom line remains the same.
