I was raised Catholic. I stayed that way. Until I read the Bible. :)

Certainly, everyone has biases. I try to limit mine to as few as possible, however. I certainly find the concept of faith appealing from an emotional level, but evidence in the universe around us refutes nearly every thing the Bible says. We shouldn't base our views on the outside world on the most pleasant view, but rather the view that the evidence supports most. I think you will find that the evidence supports an old universe, evolution, etc. when we get into the meat of our discussion.

"Just because we have different viewpoints does not mean we won't get along."

I certainly hope so. Not all fundamentalists I've met are unreasonable.
