Born into JWdumb. Baptized at age 12, saw the "trooth about the trooth" the same day. Planned my exit for 2.5 years then hit the road. DF'd in absentia. Agnostic for over 15 years after exploring many Christian demoninations and other religions. Graduated with degree in Zoology, Masters in Resource Management. Present occupation, Project Manager Clatsop County Fisheries Project and Senior Resource Manager Alaska Resources and Economic Development, Inc. My most fun is doing salmon propagation research and discussion issues of the day, linking events to humanities "coming of age". Member of Baha'i Faith since 1974. <>
