    My grandparents were fairly religious and my parents believe in God although they aren't especially religious, but I have always trusted my own senses and I have never personally seen evidence that has convinced me.

    And I wasn't unschooled in the bible, by the way. My parents read me bible stories. I even had a toy Noah's Ark which I played with all the time. Here's the problem though- all the other stories they read to me were make-believe stories. Cats don't talk or wear hats. That was just obvious to me even then. So I just assumed from the beginning that the bible was just another make-believe story.

    What I had to LEARN was that some books WEREN'T fiction. I didn't understand that until later. Still never believed the Bible was one of them though.

      from a long heritage of Norwegian Lutheran Pastors...I have described to my 6 year old son Christian stories only in a historic or moral teaching kind of way, not nearly faithy enough. There is a big Lutheran church in our relatives town with a three story Jesus inside a fish..he asked about it so I told him that Christians believe the story of Jesus and the loaves and the fishes...explained the story and he said, "HMmmmm, well I don't believe that story." It's quite the contention, they think we are DOOOOOOMMMMED.
