Skeptic turned believer, Catholic, father of 3
I was raised Catholic, began doubting Christianity at age 19, turned skeptic about why I should believe the priests, pastors and even the Bible. Science and Philosophy were my guiding stars. If it is not logical, I will not believe it.

Thankfully, Catholicism is the most logical of all the religions. It is also the most scientific in approach when it comes to her doctrines. I can say that Science and Philosophy lead me to believe in the Catholic faith. 

I believe the Catholic Church is not a denomination - she is mainstream Christianity. If you have separated from the Catholic Church, come home.

Now I am happily married to an Evangelical woman. Our wish is that Catholics and Non-Catholics will dialogue together, resolve conflicts and be united. Our kids are Catholic.

My email is vincentmercado@yahoo.com. If you have any question regarding the Catholic Church, I am glad to help.
