I try to understand how things got to be the way they are. I hold a Masters degree in Theology though I am a Secular Humanist with a continuing interest in theology, Jesus and Early Christianity, and the relationship between culture and religion in society and the secular world in general. Given my early life till age forty in the horse and buggy Mennonite community, at which point I broke with tradition and returned to school, transitioning to mainstream society, I am aware of cultural nuances realized mostly only by cultural anthropologists and others who went through the same cultural transition. For me, the transition included moving from pre-fundamentalist religion to atheism, the greatest step of which was from the horse and buggy Mennonite church to a fundamentalist Mennonite Church. The study of religion, especially Christianity, helps me understand what happened to me and what is happening in the larger world in general.
