Just like someone else said above... Go and try to disprove the Bible. Major figures who have, including Darwin, became a beliver (saved) after this test.
Well... there you have it... a "fundementalist lifestyle". You were reading the bible and regularly attending church. Nothing wrong with that, but it certainly explains your indoctrination to christian faith.
The Bible isn't a history textbook... it's a collection of stories. To some it's a living document.... it's all in what you believe. Stories over the years interpreted by man (Old Testament, New Testament, King James, New International). You either believe in the stories and what to base your life around the teachings or you don't. I believe in factual things people tend to say.... (The earth is round, the sky is blue, San Francisico is along the Pacific ocean) however sometimes I have a hard time believing statements with no factual basis.... aliens taught the Eygptians, shipbuilding, Kennedy assasination was part of a gov't conspiracy, "Go and try to disprove the Bible. Major figures who have, including Darwin, became a beliver (saved) after this test."
