I was raised Christian, but I don't believe in the stories of the Bible...like Noah and the ark, Adam and Eve, etc. I do believe in a higher being though. We all run out of fact based knowledge at some point, and that requires us to take a leap of faith. My leap of faith is a combination of science (I believe in evolution for example) and a higher being. I do not strongly believe there is someone out there who hears my prayers, but I have had so many of them answered, and so many things fall into place in unbelievable ways, that I can't help but believe there has to be something.
