I was raised in the Roman Church (RCC). I was in St Francis College in Costa Rica when the Roman Church was making an attempt to reform Vatican II, this began my journey to understand the broader universal perspective of religion in par, because I felt the Roman Church was not Catholic (Universal), I met Quakers, Unitarians and Baha'is, which seemed to have a more universal perspective on religion, and were more tolerent then the Protestant missionaries. I am strongly inclined toward science my whole life, and traditional religions based on the Bible did not remotely make sense, In college I attended the Unitarian Universalist Church and still feel empathetic toward them. I began a more intense investigaton of religion and philosophies and became a Baha'i in 1971. Since I have developed what I call a Universalism philosophy and I am still a Baha'i. The Universal ism philosophy gives me a more independent perspective on religious choice and the consequences even to the point of skepticism as to what I believe.
