I found this site randomly trying to google something or other, and this actually seemed like an intelligent group of people so I figured I'd give it a try.
Briefly: I'm an undergraduate student attending one of those hippie-dippie colleges where you get to design your own major, so I'm currently finishing my second year, studying molecular biology and religion. I can't say that I was ever particularly drawn to philosophy until earlier this year, when I took a philosophy of religion course and really loved it.
I'm much, much better informed on Christian issues, particularly stuff about fundamentalist Protestants (watching the 700 Club in high school, randomly, set off this interest, and I've been researching ever since...) than anything else, though I know my way around Buddhism and Islam. My focus in religious studies in college, thus far, mostly involves the interaction between Western and Eastern religious traditions, especially in the context of imperialist interests.
I could do with reading much more philosophy, I admit. I loved Kierkegaard and William James, even if the former isn't perfectly compatible with a scientific view of things. If you want to recommend more, recommend away. :3
