You have an interest in religion and evolution/prehistory, despite the fact that the layman separates the two greatly. What religion are you, anyway?

I guess that is a bit different ha :) I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, aka "Mormon". We believe in embracing all truth, whether it comes from science or scripture. If they seem to conflict, it's because our understanding isn't complete yet, so we just keep learning :) I actually work as an artist at a dinosaur museum funded by the church lol

That said, the church is neither officially "pro" nor "anti" evolution, just truth seeking, so you may run into individuals who fall on either side of the debate.

Well, that's actually pretty cool. Good for you. I'm a Christian who believes in a metaphorical interpretation of our Bible rather than a literal one. I don't often talk about that to other Christians, though.

Cool! I can identify. Though I take the Bible literally for the most part, I think there are definitely passages to be understood symbolically– eg aspects of the creation. I personally don't see any problem with interpreting the "days of creation" as creative phases that could have been as long as geological eras. Not to mention that Genesis 2:5 indicates the first chapter of Genesis to be a spiritual creation, rather than a physical one ([link]). Whatever the solution, I feel our understanding of science and religion will eventually mesh as we gain a more complete understanding of both.
