Those of you who grew up in a fundamentalist household and had an interest in science, did your parents try to shield you from science or provide you with creationist resources?
I loved learning about dinosaurs as a kid, and my parents were and still are, to my knowledge, young earth creationists. They didn't keep me from learning, but they bought me books and videos teaching ideas such as 'dinosaurs died in the great flood' and 'dinosaurs were all vegetarians before the fall.' Now I'm a closet atheist studying environmental biology and fascinated with evolution and natural selection.
I'm curious, did you have similar experiences? If so, did you believe the ideas your parents taught you, and how long did you buy it for?
