Reluctantly I admit that that's me. About 10 years ago I was still a
dogmatic fundamentalist Christian, quick to dismiss any idea contrary to the
strict conventional interpretation of scripture as heresy. I voluntarily
incarcerated myself in the prison of living according to the ethics and
morals handed down by centuries of Christian orthodoxy, as opposed to what I
felt worked for me. My mind was completely closed to any theory, idea or
mindset which was not contained within the 66 books of the Holy Bible. Many
of my friends and family are still fundies and when I see the closed
mindedness they exhibit, it reminds me of myself of 10 years ago, and it
sickens me. Today I would definitely *not* be found hanging out with the
Zero of ~1990.
