hehe, I taught Sunday School at my church in high school (the methodist one in Roselle Park) and I was a lot like that. Not really atheist but very science-y. I believed in helping people ask themselves questions and still do. Kids especially ’cause there’s always some sham out there that needs to be figured out and even if you end up agreeing with whatever it is, at least you gave it a good questioning first.
was lucky though – right from the outset they taught us that the days were metaphorical and could really mean billions of years and that it ties in fine with evolution – they just got some of the order a little wrong tongue emoticon
