I should be an atheist. But I'm not.
Let me back up and explain, and hopefully my thoughts won't burn too many bridges.
I went to seminary and earned a Master's Degree in Theology. This may be my saving grace as well as my undoing. Before starting seminary a close friend pleaded that I not become an atheist after I graduated. She said she had a friend who attended a seminary and came out an atheist. I could understand that. I could understand learning about your religion causing so much disillusion that you abandon it all together. But me? An atheist? How absurd.
