The problem with religion in a nutshell. At least with science it's acknowledged that information could be proven wrong at a later date instead of saying "the is the answer for now and forever, and if you question it you are a bad person."

That's how it is supposed to be for science. But unfortunately it is not. Just try offering a view/theory/possibility that is not popular and see how people come after you. Funnily most of those torch bearers can't even spell science. But think they know science better than Einstein...

I understand that some people have bad experiences like this, but as a person with a religious background, I can assure you that it's not a universal attitude, and it's certainly not encouraged. Someone who understands the Bible will know that blind faith is not what is required of us. In fact, we are instructed to have a solid understanding of why we believe what we do, so that when people ask questions, we'll be able to answer them instead of trying to shush them (I Peter 3:15). That being said, if your experience has been otherwise, I'm sorry. It must be very frustrating to have your honest search for answers met with fear and opposition.

I'm confused. Are you a he or a she?

Not that it actually matters, but the new FML keeps messing up the genders assigned to the posts. Therefore, base it on the text in the individual FML where OP refers to themself as "she".

Catholics are the more extreme Christians. I would go to a non-denominational church. Then you can apply the one theory everyone should, when learning anything: "Take what is useful, discard what is useless, and add what is essential to you." Bruce Lee said/wrote that. I read that back in high school and haven't ever had an issue with that philosophy.

Hi, a catholic here. On behalf of my religion I would like to say that we are not the "more extreme" Christian sect, but rather that some people are strict and get cranky if you question the religion, usually closed-minded old people, or in some cases, some priests or other clerics of the church. I've been to catholic school all my life, now in 11th grade, and we've always been taught to ask questions and explore what makes us curious. We question the beliefs, then we get explained what we can, or we disbelieve, and not everyone will believe in everything the church says. That's okay, it's only human. I'd find a new parish if I were you and hope that that priest is less strict about stuff.

Same and same. Ask me anything, OP. I'll do my best to answer or find the answer for you. You should never be turned away for asking questions. The Bible is confusing! I ask questions all the time!
