    I have Bob Dylan in my head while you were playing Devil's Advocate for your new friends - "You just wanted to be on the side that's winning."  And then when you realized they weren't winning, that was enough for you.  (Not trying to decipher you personally on line - just sharing my impressions).  Are you now a lawyer?

      I'm a high school physics teacher.  

      My interest in science started when I was about 8.  from reading books about science and scientists my heroes were mostly long dead scientists, and what I learned from them was that challenging ideas, even those that we cherish, is a good thing.

      That outlasted my religious beliefs.
