Born in 1945. Memory mostly lost of first six years. At eight or nine I started to wonder why. Parents joined LDS church when I was 9. I was given the choice; decided to trust my mom. Lived as an idealist Mormon until about half way through a mission in NYC and NJ (Eastern States). Became an agnostic for about seven years, during which my wife and I successfully alienated most other idealists belonging to the LDS Church. Became an empiricist, but did not realize it. Traveled for about three years interspersed with periodic bouts of employment. Had an epiphany experience at twenty eight and have been trying to recover ever since.
